Birchbox Select July 2017 (Beta box #3)

This is my third month subscribing to Birchbox Select – Beta. I was surprised at the box design, it seems very wintery to me but I do like it the colors and pattern.

My first Play! by Sephora (July 2017, bag #049)

I have been trying to sign up for Play! by Sephora for about a year now but they have never shipped to my area. Every month or two I would try to sign up and finally it worked last month! Sephora opened up their Play! subscriptions to Alaskan and Hawaiian residents (they unfortunately still do…

Birchbox Skincare Sampler Kits Order

    I needed to try out some sunscreens for my face so decided to take a look at the sale section in Birchbox because they were having a special 40% off sale. It didn’t take me long to decide on the Birchbox Sampler: The Complete SPF Kit. It had a decent number of recognized brands and seemed better than the couple of other spf sets they had available.

ipsy Glam Bag May 2017 Unbagging

The May ipsy Glam Bag is pretty freaking cute. The tiny ice cream cone and popsicle icons are adorable and the bag is plastic so should be waterproof (fingers crossed)! I didn’t get a product card this month, not sure if ipsy is finally moving away from those or if mine was just overlooked.

Birchbox April 2017 Unboxing

The next paragraph is a bummer, skip to below the picture to avoid sad things! It has been about 2 months since my last blog posts due to my father becoming deathly ill. He battled his very late diagnosed stage 4 cancers for about 9 weeks before dying on May 8th, 2017. He was 59….

ipsy Glam Bag April 2017 Unbagging

My April 2017 ipsy Glam Bag contained the following 5 items: the MicaBeauty Highlighting Powder ($16 value), Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush ($10 value), Hanalei’s Aloe Soothing Gel ($4 value), Hey Honey Bésame Mucho Lip Balm ($7 value), ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Pencil ($5 value) for a total sample value of $42. This month my ipsy bag was okay. I won’t be using the blush brush because I don’t want to ever have to look at it again, I’m going to make myself try the brown eyeliner for experimentation purposes, and although I will definitely use the lip balm, highlighting powder, and aloe gel I’m not really excited about any of the items.

My Last Beauty Beyond Borders (3B) Bag (February 2017)

I very sadly present my last Beauty Beyond Borders (3B) unboxing.      The 3B bag arrived in different packaging this month! It usually comes in a bright orange-red box similar to the ones Birchboxes come in, this month it came it a bubble envelope like ipsy and WIN, except this one was gray and…

Birchbox Smeared in Burgundy Lip Butter :( February 2017 Unboxing

There are two reasons this post is so incredibly late: First off my February 2017 Birchbox arrived damaged and my sample choice (a dark burgundy lip butter) had come apart and gotten over everything else in the box. Secondly, the day I received my Birchbox my father went in to the ER for emergency surgery…
