Boxycharm May 2017

What is Boxycharm? Boxycharm* is a monthly beauty subscription box which is $21USD per month; $5 shipping to Canada. In Canadian dollars it works out to be roughly $35 per month – which in my opinion is still a great deal considering the value of the box is usually well over $100 worth of product.

How Does It Work? It’s simple, go to the Boxycharm website & sign up. You can choose to do monthly payments, payments every 6 months or yearly payments. These will automatically come out of your bank account & will only stop once you cancel your subscription. Payments are typically taken off on the 2nd day of each month & the box is normally shipped out by the 10th day.

If you’d like to know more about Boxycharm or are curious to see what I got in March’s box – keep on reading!

Instagram Shadow Ban

If you’re involved with social media, you may have already heard about the Instagram shadow ban. I first heard about this through one of the beauty accounts I follow on Instagram. I was curious to say the least, so I did some research of my own. After spending hours Googling, I did a little test to see if I was shadow banned & surprise, surprise – I had been.

DIY Pressed Glitters

I’ve never been much of a glitter fan, at all – but I’ve always done different bold looks that would’ve gone to the next level of awesome if I had some glitter thrown on my face. I live in a small town; where our makeup is pretty limited & we don’t have any cosmetic grade glitters in Walmart. I did a little research & decided to make my own pressed glitters. I find pressed glitters are a lot easier to work with rather than loose glitter – at least with pressed glitters you have a bit more control over where the product is going.

I’m not a professional makeup … maker… creator person.. whatever you want to call it. So whatever is said in this post please make these at your own risk. Disclaimer: I could only find craft glitter where I live (I’m a rebel, so I went with that option) but I highly suggest in getting some cosmetic grade glitters for yourself (or you can be a rebel like me, up to you). You can find cosmetic grade glitters on various websites; such as NyxCosmetics, BulkGlitters & probably even Amazon.

If you’d like to know my method & recipe on how I made my own pressed glitters – keep on reading!

BdelliumTools Review

Some of you may already know that I’m a huge makeup brush lover (& a bit of a hoarder…) so when I came across BdelliumTools (DELL-ee-uhm) on YouTube, I decided to research them a little bit. BdelliumTools launched back in 2009 in California. Along with making natural & synthetic handmade brushes, they also make lip products as well. When I was browsing around their website, I came across the Product Review Program – being a blogger I was highly intrigued. Not only at maybe being able to test out their products but their brushes are beautiful & I’ve heard nothing but great things through social media.

I bit the bullet, I took a chance & applied to the Product Review Program. Now, I know my following isn’t super impressive nor do I have the most beautiful professional photography skills either but decided I had nothing to lose. Luckily for me, they accepted my application & you best believe I was jumping up & down with excitement!

The products in this post were generously sent to me by BdelliumTools for reviewing purposes. I’ve been using them for about a week now & if you’d like to hear my thoughts on these brushes (& the lipstick they sent me) – keep on reading!

ABH Modern Renaissance Review

I’m sure you’ve heard all about this palette all over social media by now – if you haven’t, where the heck have you been!? This palette is surrounded by so much hype that I was pretty skeptical about buying it at first. I finally decided to take the plunge & purchased this through the AnastasiaBeverlyHills website (Sephora was out of stock every time I tried to order it) for $42USD + shipping + custom fees (yep, I got dinged with customs ordering from the ABH website). It’s well worth every single penny (that’s kind of moot now, seeing as how the penny is obsolete) in my opinion.

If you’d like to read my final thoughts & see swatches on this palette – keep on reading!

PixiByPetra Goodies

You might have┬áheard all about Pixi products via social media; if you haven’t Pixi is a brand created by Petra Strand over 10 years ago. They’re known for their affordable prices along with being a cruelty free brand. You can purchase Pixi products online (the US site doesn’t ship outside the US; the UK site does) or in select stores; such as Target (which is no longer in Canada), Shoppers Drug Mart, select Walmarts, etc. The team at Pixi were generous enough to send me some goodies for reviewing purpose; therefore all products talked about in this post were not bought with my own money. However, my thoughts & opinions will remain 100% honest.

If you’re curious to see what goodies were sent to me – keep on reading!

February 2017: Hits & Misses

I’m only a day late on this which isn’t too bad honestly. I actually had a lot of hits & misses originally, but I ended up narrowing down both categories. I shouldn’t have to say this; but I’ll put in a little disclaimer anyway – if you love these products; that’s awesome but they just didn’t work for me personally. My misses are also not to talk bad about the company in any way, shape or form. This is just my personal opinion & should be taken with a grain of salt.

If you’re curious to know what I’ve been loving & not loving so much in the month of February – just keep on reading!
