Covergirl Bombshell Pow-der Brow Review and Swatches

Covergirl Pow-der Brow ($8.29) is a new brow product for Spring 2015 that's just starting to arrive in stores this week.  I found mine at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, but it should be in the drugstores shortly. I was really interested in this because it's a powder wand vs. a brow gel, and right now, my favorite brow product, Divaderme Brow Extender II is also a powder wand that contains dry fibers that adhere to your skin and hair (see my review here). I really prefer powders because they tend to look softer and more natural than gels which can make your eyebrows look hard and stiff. Take a look...

The packaging says that you can use this for your brows and also to softly line your eyes as well.  I was pretty skeptical about using it as an eyeliner at first, but once I tried out the wand, it made more sense (more on that below).

Memebox Superbox #53 My Honey Box Review

It's time for another Memebox unboxing!  I never know what they are going to send me as a Memebox Ambassador and I just love being surprised. When I opened this Superbox, I was excited to see that the theme is honey!  Since I have dry skin, I love products that contain honey because they are so soothing and hydrating. So let's see what I got...

These product information cards are a must because most of the packaging is Korean and I'm not able to read about the product or how to use it.  Every product in this box is full size! The box cost $29 and contained $102 worth of products!

Instagram Goal!

**Update** I just wanted to thank you all so much for checking out and following my Instagram page.  At this rate I'll hit my goal way before Jan 1!  I can't tell you how much it means to me that so many of you support me and this blog and I am truly grateful for all of you! XOXO**

I just started an Instagram account a few months ago (I know, so late to the game!) and I thought I'd let you know about it in case you haven't stopped by yet.
It's more than just stuff I post here on the blog- this is where I also post behind the scenes photos of my life so you can get to know me a little better!
I'll also be posting some giveaways on Instagram in the coming days and weeks, so you don't want to miss it! It's going to be great!

My goal is to get to 1,000 followers by the end of the year, so if you're not following me yet, please join me.
To those who are, thank you so much! I appreciate you more than you know!

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2014 Reveal

My Ipsy Glam bag arrived last week and I've been so behind on reviews, I'm just getting to it now. Take a look...
Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Hairspray (1.5oz, worth $1.62).  I'm not really a hairspray person, but I do use it occasionally when I curl my hair or when I put it up.  This hairspray is supposed to hydrate your hair while it holds, so I'm looking forward to trying this the next time I need some hairspray.

Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette Launches Tomorrow!

Mark your calendar (or set your alarms) because tomorrow at 1am PST (4am for me on the East Coast) the Urban Decay Naked on the Run palette is launching! I'm seriously considering setting my alarm to wake up and buy it quickly.  With the holidays fast approaching, I have a feeling this is going to be gone very quickly.


It's $54 and comes with the following:
What You Get:

Eyeshadow:
 Dive (metallic rose w/golden micro-shimmer), 
Fix (soft taupe matte), 
Resist (medium metallic taupe), 
Dare (medium brown matte), 
Stun (metallic bronze w/light gold micro-shimmer) and 
5050 (cool bisque satin). 
Bronzer: medium bronze matte. 
Blush: vibrant pink w/light shimmer. 
Perversion Mascara: blackest black. 
24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil: Stag (deep brown satin). 
Naked Lipgloss: Sesso (rose w/pink shimmer).

It's an entire look in one stunning rose gold travel case.  Did I tell you I really want this?  See ya at 4am!

Rimmel Wonder'lash Mascara Review

Rimmel Wonder'lash mascara is a brand new release here in the US, but it's been around in the UK since late Summer (over there it's called Wonder'full).  I spotted it at Walgreens recently, so I picked up the regular version (there's also a Waterproof in a blue tube). It's $8.49 but they had a $1 off coupon on the display making it $7.49.

Wonder'lash claims to be clump-free, adding volume and definition to the lashes. It's infused with Argan oil to keep your lashes soft and healthy.  I love the tube- it's really different! It's bronze with a mirror finish and a sort of squared-off design.

New Covergirl Ultra Smooth, Powder Brow, More spotted at BBB

This morning, I spotted some new Covergirl 2015 products at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. The people that work there must think I'm crazy because I literally check there every single day for new products. Sometimes I'm disappointed and sometimes I get lucky...like today!

Covergirl has launched several new products... a few of which I knew about and some I didn't! Take a look...
I've already reviewed the new Full Lash Bloom since I found it at Target a few weeks ago (see that here). But there were some new products on the bottom half of the display...

First, I should mention there are two new Ink It Perfect Point Eyeliner shades...a purple and a gold. Also there are new nail shades as well.
