What are you going to be for Halloween?



Testing out theBalm Meet Matte eyeshadow Palette. I'm loving it! The shadows are pigmented and easily blendable. I used Matt gallenger and Matt ramirez.

Get it here: theBalm - Meet Matt(e) Matte Eyeshadow Palette $ 32.95 on Amazon.

Monthly Subscription Box(es) Update!

It has been AWHILE! I have accumulated about two monthly subsciption goodies I haven't shared!
Since I got to test these products for bit, I can share my thoughts on them as well!


First up is...The October BirchBox!



The DDF moisturizer has a very lovely smell. It feels like a primer to me (Smashbox orignal primer anyone?). Is it suppose to shrink pores or just camouflage them? I think it only does the second.

I love the new ChapStick! I am not sure if it gives 8 hours of moisture but it certainly lasts longer than it's ancestors. 

thBalm stain is useless to me. It does not add any color on my skin if I use it as a blush (or lip stain). I think it might be too sheer to call itself a stain.

12 benefits hair treatment smells like Pantene, feels sticky but works well on my dry ends.

Haven't tried the mask yet. I am really scared this might break me out. 


Next up...The IPSY (myglam) September bag!






Last month's bag consisted of a NYX eyeshadow, sample size of EM products, Victoria Jackson eyebrow pencil, JCat Lipstick, It's so big mascara by Elizabeth Mott and an eyeliner from Starlooks.

Let's save some time here. I am only a fan of the mascara and lipstick. The rest...well...yeah.

I used the Jcat Fantabulous lipstick in Honey Crisp as a lip primer. This color washes away all of your lip's natural color. It creates a blank canvas for your lipstick. This lipstick can also be used to tone down the color of any lipstick. Apply honey crisp after applying lipstick and blend away!

The It's so big mascara has been an absolute favorite of mine this month! It does not smudge and stays on all day!
