September Ipsy Bag

OMG I just had the most intense week ever.... Had quizzes on Mon and Tues, midterms-Wed, Thurs, Fri. Physician Assistant school is no joke! I miss reviewing as often like I use to but I do enjoy even the day a week that I can write up as its my little break from all the studying! Anyways today I want to show you what I got in this months IPSY bag.

This month's theme is Classic Beauty. First off I absolutely love the color combination gorgeous!!!

Want to see what I got???

The first three products I got was:
1.  Elizabeth Mott It's so big Volumizing Mascara- You can never have enough mascara! 
2. Nyx Single Eye Shadow - Cute color its a dark char
3. J Cat Beauty Fantabulous Lipstick- Pretty color! Wonder how it will look on my skintone
4. Starlooks Kohl Eye linerI tested on my arm and it looked like it would be nice. Then I tried it on my eye and it didn't come out dark. Sad face!

 4. Freeman Beauty Facial Brightening Paper Mask- This look funs! I have never tried a paper mask and just the scents sound like their are amazing

I was about to try the lipstick color and this happened! So sad! Did any of this happen to you guys? Maybe I just got a bad one..

Overall, loved the bag: the design and the color combination. I will def try out the paper face mask and mascara for sure. Prob won't use the lipstick and liner bc they didn't work for me. Overall, not bad. Hope we get some more good stuff next month!

Olay Fresh Effects Shine Minimizing Cleanser

Would you like to review products like a blogger? If so there is a really cool company called Influenster where you do surveys and other stuff and get the opportunity to review a themed "vox box". I got chosen for one with the theme of Paradise box. Each box usually comes with full size products and I thought it would be fun to review all the different things I got in it.

The first product I will review today is the Olay Fresh Effects Shine minimizing cleanser.

Since I have some serious oily skin I thought it would be amazing to try this product and maybe get rid of some serious shine I am wearing now-a-days

The cleanser is a thicker consistency that you add a little water to and make a paste with. It smells good and I just do it in the mornings. I had no breakouts or irritations at all and used it for a bout a week and a half. Now did I notice a difference in my overall shine? Not at all!

Bummer because I was hoping maybe this would be the answer to all my oily skin prayers and unfortunately I didn't notice a difference at all. =( Too bad..

Do you recommend any face products for shiny skin? If so, please comment below I def want to find something for my face!!

Price $6-7 approx
Where to find: any drug stores

Tweezerman New Products

Hi all! Been pretty busy with exams. School is really working me! I was so excited to see a package from Tweezerman last week as I am a beauty ambassador so I get to try out some of their new products they release fun! So today I got two really cool bright colored products I use regularly.

The first thing I got was one of their new Neon Hot Filemates! How fun is the color! I use to think Tweezerman was just tweezers until I tried their eye lash curler and eye lash comb on my very first ambassador box. Still using both of those products to this day! You can never go wrong with a file and I really love the bright summer colors and will be excited to whip this is on class when I have to file my nails down for exams =(. I can no longer have long nails so its nubbins for me for one whole year at least. Tweezerman also has two other colors for their files: green/yellow and orange/pink

The second thing I got is what this company is know for...tweezers. I got the a mini slant tweezer from their new Fresh and Fruit collection

The mini's are really cute and you can see how tiny they are in my hand. Strawberries are my favorite fruit so I am so excited that I have this! This collection comes with two other kinds- an orange one and a pomegranate in pink. 

I just wanted to show you the amazing angle these tweezers have! They will get every little eyebrow hair you have with precision. Before I got into Tweezerman I use to get cheap drug store one's and they would hurt and make my skin bleed. I love Tweezerman bc I don't have to tug out the hair a bunch of times. It def doesn't hurt like it use to with other tweezers and I love the cute designs and size. My old ones were boring silver so how cute that they are all girly. Plus with a mini I can easily throw it in my purse and use it as I travel or when I am stuck in my classroom for 8 hours and trust me there are days like that!! 

As always I am a tweezerman fan and believe they are worth the price you pay! They have saved me time and sweat from plucking my eyebrows so I will continue to use them!!1

Price- $15 (tweezer) and $7 (files)
Where to find- any drug stores like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target or online at:

RocksBox #2

Hi all had a long long week with tests and quizzes almost daily. It seems like I will never get a break this year with school. Gotta keep telling myself it will be worth it but it is so hard to think then when you are the one in these shoes. But I make myself take little 10 min breaks here and there and I love having beauty boxes to be able to open up to keep my mind off school!

Here is the 2nd box I got for Rocksbox a jewelry subscription..

I do always enjoy the little box that is tied up in a cute little pink bow

So let's see what I got this month...

The first thing I got was a Margaret Elizabeth Cushion Cut Ring in Aqua Chalcedony

I usually am not a fan of gold color rings but I think it went really well with the gem stone. 
Not bad! 

The second piece of jewelry I got was a Loren Hope Clara Bracelet. Not really a big fan of the design. Don't see anything special about it.

The last thing I got was an Urban Gem Geometry Renaissance Necklace in black. It is def a unique design as well. Not bad

This month they did not include a price list. Maybe they didn't want to scare me but I decided to look up each company online and see the prices of the products above or ones very similar to those. For the ring I seen a similar one for $78. I found the exact same bracelet for $68. And finally the necklace I wasn't able to find but im guessing its going to be around 100 too

As mentioned last time I love getting to see and try new jewelry but as a student there is no way I could afford anything here. One day!!!

L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Excess

Happy Labor day all! I got a bunch of drug store mascara from Rite aid to review! I love trying these bc these next two years while I am a student I will only be able to afford these so I need to find good ones for good deals. 

The one I am reviewing today is from L'Oreal and its the Voluminous Million Lashes Excess in Blackest black.

As usual the firs thing I do is check out the brush. I can easily tell if I will get clumps easy but this brush looked nice you don't see excess mascara between bristles and they are thing enough so they will reach each individual lash as you apply.

I hope you guys love comparison photos bc I really like to show you what each mascara does for me. While I have long lashes they are normally flat as you can see on the right side. But when I applied mascara on the left side you can the lengthening and volumizing capabilities of this mascara. I didn't even need to curl my lashes before to achieve this and the lashes stayed up for most of the day

Here is a side shot showing my lame lashes on the right side and my lashes with the L'Oreal mascara on the left side. Very satisfied with this mascara. Will def be adding this brand to my drug store favorites. But I got like 4 more drug store brands to review so we will see which others will be my favorite. 

Price: $8.95
Where to find: Drug Stores-Target, CVS, Walgreens and Walmart
