February Giveaway: New Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette

Too Faced - Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection

For the month of February I am giving away one Too Faced palette that is brand new and absolutely beautiful. The packing is much sleeker than previous palettes and I think you could get great daytime looks and nighttime. This retails for $36 USD on the Sephora website. 

1 Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette that retails for $36. Sephora says, "This handpicked collection of eye shadows offers boudoir-worthy colors including five new shades just for this palette for a total of nine soft and sexy colors. Created with high concentrations of color, what you see is what you get: pigment-rich shades with a brilliant finish. As with all Too Faced palettes, a show-and-tell centerfold Glamour Guide is included to give you instructions on creating three Boudoir Eyes looks." This palette is paraben and cruelty free.

January Empties

Since last month I didn't have that many empties this month I went through things like crazy. I actually also went through a lot of makeup this month, partially because I needed to toss a lot of mascaras that had dried up. A lot of Bath & Body Works as usual and a ton of skincare. I'm really trying to use up what I have before I go out and buy new stuff. I've been doing a pretty good job of that so far and that's why you haven't heard about any new makeup purchases from me recently. I just have so much stuff that I really need to focus on using it all up.

Nail of the Day: Chanel Malice

It's been forever since I have done a NOTD post. Why not come back big with Chanel? This has been a very talked about polish for Fall/Winter so I decided to pick it up. While it is pretty I just don't know if I get the hype just yet. I may need to wear it again to see but I'm not sure that this would make any favorites list just yet. This polish is $26 and you get .40 fl oz. So not cheap by any means but Chanel does make some very unique colors so sometimes its worth it.

What's in My January Birchbox

January's Birchbox theme is new year, new you. The box is focused on making 2013 the best year ever. Being that this is a new year I was really excited to see what I was going to get in my box. Birchbox is currently the only beauty box subscription service that I still receive so I am always super excited when I get my box. This is what I got in my January Birchbox.

Maybelline Color Whisper Photos, Swatches, & Review

First there were the Revlon Lip Butter, then Loreal Color Riche, now Maybelline Color Whisper. How could Maybelline stay out the game? Well I'm glad they joined in because they are probably my favorite drugstore brand so I always have high hopes for their products. I will let you know my thoughts on them and how they compare to Loreal and Revlon.

The packaging I love! They are the slimmest and sleekest lipstick that I own which I can highly appreciate. I hate unnecessary packing and we all know when we have a small clutch with limited space how this comes in handy. The lids correspond to the color in the tube (for some but not all). The cap is easy to take off and put back on and unlike the Loreal ones you don't have to lock it into any groove.

What's in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox

Influenster is a program where you can receive free products or boxes based on your interests and social media influence. The boxes include full sized products and if you receive a box you review the products. It's a fairly simple concept but also a great way to try out new things for free. This box is the Holiday VoxBox and is my second box that I have received from Influenster

Project X Pan January 2013 Update

I started doing Project X Pan in October and I am still trying to use up some of the products in January. I used up probably more than half of the below products but still have quite a few to go. While I didn't do a no buy on this project pan I still enjoy focusing on certain products as I think it really helps me use things up. This post will focus on what I have used up since my last post in October.
