August Monthly Beauty Boxes

A year ago, I saw my best friend posting pictures on Instagram of these beauty boxes she was getting. I liked what I saw and decided to sign up. I currently have two I subscribe to, which are Birchbox and Beauty Army. With Birchbox, you fill out a profile and they send you 5-6 samples based off the profile you made. I love the element of surprise and have enjoyed all the samples I have received so far. Beauty Army, you also fill out a profile but you get to choose up to 6 samples. I was loving the new products to try but I'm starting to get repeats of products I've chosen in previous boxes.  And I noticed in the last two boxes, there was a sample I did not choose. I think I should get an email saying what I picked has been sold out and to pick something else. So here are my August boxes.

The one on top is Beauty Army:
Marula- Facial Oil
Pida- Exfoliating Gel
Color Smash- Hair Color
Remington- Head Bands
Adonia- Organic Tanner (the product I didn't choose)
Mighty Leaf- Ginger Peach Iced Tea
I have not used any of these products yet but I know Mighty Leaf read are amazing!!

Birchbox is on the bottom:
Malin&Goetz- Vitamin E moisturizer
Mally Beauty- Waterproof Eyeliner in Sailor
Uniqone- Hair Treatment
Whish- Coconut Milk Correcting Gel and Deodorant Wipes

I love, love, love the Mally Beauty eyeliner. It's a pretty blue color that goes on smooth, doesn't smudge and looks great against my complexion.
The Malin&Goetz moisturizer was pretty good. My skin didn't get dry and it felt good. My skin is funny with moisturizers so I would have to really try it for a while to really review it.

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
