Review – Marc Jacobs Lipstick

28 Sep

The 2016 Sephora Birthday Gift was a Marc Jacobs lipstick and eyeliner.  I was very skeptical about the quality of these two products, but I was blown away by the results.



The shade, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, is a beautiful natural pink.  It looks slightly more done than natural lips.

I absolutely loved the formula of this lipstick.  It’s so smooth.  It doesn’t bleed.  It stays on through morning coffee and snacks.

The shade is perfect for daytime and the office.

I will absolutely be purchasing more Marc Jacobs lipsticks, even if they do cost a small fortune.

Thanks for reading!


Review – Laqa & Company Sheer Lip Lube Pencil

30 Jun

Haha lube.  I know, I’m 16….

I first was introduced to Laqa through Birchbox and its generous sample of a Sheer Lip Lube Pencil.  Obviously, I liked it so much that I bought a full size.


I bought this in Beezelbub.  The company describes this as a rose, and that’s pretty accurate.  Pinky rose.

Here is how it looks on skin.


No flash



As you can see, this is a pink.  If you’re not down with pink shades on your lips, this may not be for you.

My thoughts

I really like the Laqa brand of lippies.  I really like the crayon/pencil packaging.

The minty smell is refreshing.

The formula is creamy and silky.  It applies smooth and the color pigment is intense.

They are a bit pricey, so if spending $18 on a lip gloss isn’t your thing.  Revlon is pretty comparable.

Have you tried Laqa?

Love it or Leave it?


Ipsy May Glam Bag!

19 May

Here is what I received in my Ipsy Glam Bag.  It has been a good month for Beauty Boxes for me 🙂



Revlon Colorburst Balm in Elusive


Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub (So psyched for this.  Can’t wait to compare the two scrubs from last month and this month.)


Eva NYC Hair Mask

Pacifica eye shadow (this may be a color combo that is Ipsy exclusive)


Hang 10 Sunscreen

What did you get???


Birchbox May Beauty Box

14 May

We have been oh so busy with life!  Forgive us!!!!

I was so psyched to receive this Birchie.  I am in love.



LOQA Lip Lube Pencil.  I won’t lie, I looked at this and cringed.  HARD.  It’s PURPLE.  I dig purple, but on lips?  I was skeptical.  Luckily, this is amazing. I love the purple color for spring!  And it smells minty. Yum.


I was excited to get this shave cream, but it turned out to be a meh.  It’s not terrible, but it’s really expensive and not worth the $20.00 price tag.  Drugstore shaving cream is amazing, why spend so much more?


Vitamins!  These are gummie yummies.  Pricier than what you may find at a drug store, but you are also getting two supplements in one – a multi and a Omega3.


Sunscreen, have not tried this yet!

Shampoo and Conditioner which I haven’t tied yet either.

What did you get?  Do you love it?

Beauty Box Subscription – Update to what we get

16 Jan

Once upon a time I wanted to cancel my Julep monthly subscription and get another beauty box.


This week my wish came true, and now are are both subscribers to Birchbox!  To update, I will now be receiving Ipsy and Birchbox.  These are both $10.00 per month, which means I am still saving money from what I paid for Julep. Julep was $20.00 month.

I may add yet another subscription to my month since I’m used to spending $30.00 and now I’m *only* spending $20.00 HAHA.


Review – Michelle Phan em lipstick review

9 Dec


I received a Creamy Color Sheer Lipstick in Hug Me from Ipsy in November.  It retails for $16.50. This is not my favorite lipstick in my collection.

 Here is why:


This color is the absolute gross on me.  It matches my skin tone, and I honestly thought this was a stick concealer when i first opened the package.

The formula is really strange.  It may be due to the wrongness of the color for me, but as you can tell from my picture it applies unevenly.  It looks like I have a film on my lips.

Not cute.

It seems to be moisturizing enough, so I may wear it around the house as a balm.  It doesn’t seem to work very well as a base or gloss for under/over lipstick.

So yeah…

Did anyone get this  color or another color and loves the formula?


Lancome Friends and Family Event

2 Dec

I got this in my mail box today! I think anyone can take advantage of the sale. There is no code.

Through December 6, 2013.
