Review on Shopping My Beauty Samples-Week 3

Hey guys! Can you believe that Easter is here already?? Gotta play the Easter Bunny later after posting this!! So let's get into these reviews!!

Nelson J Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 in 1 Non Foaming Shampoo

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 22.00
Review: This was a pretty interesting shampoo to use. I've never really used a 7 in 1 product for my hair before. I really didn't see what scent this was until I opened it. It smelled like very strong orange mint. It didn't bother me that much but it was just so strong. I actually enjoyed using this product. It really got my hair clean, had great slippage so I could detangle my hair and left my hair feeling pretty soft. I think I would repurchase this if it was in a different scent.

Etre Belle Collagen Aloe Vera Hydro Mask

Box it came from: Glossybox
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 39.50 for 10 masks
Review: This was another interesting product to use. I wondered how I was going to apply this mask to my face and what it was going to look like. It felt so different on my face, like there was cool gel just sitting there. Here is a picture of what the mask looked like on my face and me being silly lol!

You would apply the mask to your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes and work the remaining gel into your face. My skin was so soft and felt so moisturized. I would use this mask again.

Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow Creamy Eye Pencil in Pearl

Box it came from: Ipsy
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 14.99
Review: I really loved using this eye pencil. I've never used a eye pencil before and this one was pretty easy to use. I was really hoping this would be a twist up pencil but you have to sharpen it. The color I received was Pearl which is a really pretty golden, champagne color. I love that you can apply it heavy or blend it out for a more sheer, natural look. I would repurchase this again. Here is a closer look at the eye pencil and swatches.

Here is a look I created using the eye pencil,

Prestiche Lemongrass with Olive Oil Soap

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 16.99
Review: I didn't know what to expect with this soap. I thought it was going to smell like lemons but I was wrong. I really don't know how to describe what this smelled like but I didn't like it too much. As for using the soap, it was okay. My skin felt pretty nice after using it. This soap also came with a $40 gift card to use on anything on the website. I actually got two more soaps from this company. 

 Apothederm Bright Skin Serum

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 67.50
Review: I've had some bad experiences with serums. I thought they were an unnecessary extra step for skin care. I decided to give them another chance and I'm glad I did. This serum has not broken my skin out and has been really great to use. I don't think I would not repurchase this one because of the price but I'm willing to search for a serum that will would for me.

Ojon Rare Blend Hair Oil

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 35.00
Review: I was always curious about this hair oil. I've seen it in the stores but was just not really sure if I would like it. I was happy to get a sample of this before I purchased it. I used it last night when I washed my hair and I feel it's like other oils I've tried out. It kept my hair moisturized and had a great scent. I'm not too sure if I would repurchase this but I did enjoy using it.

MCMC Phoenix Perfume

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 95.00
Review: The combination of the peach and other floral notes in this perfume is amazing!! I love the scent of this perfume!! It reminds me of summer nights. I wish the full size wasn't so much, I would so purchase it. Hopefully I can find it in a smaller size.

That's it for Week 3 reviews. Have you used any of these products? What are your thoughts on them? Comment below and let me know!! Hope everyone has a great Easter!!!


  1. That mask sounds great! I got that same pencil in my Ipsy bag. I use it in the inner corners of my eyes.

    1. That mask was pretty interesting to use and it was pretty good. That eye pencil would be great to use in the inner corner of your eyes, thanks for the tip.

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.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
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.

I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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!

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…
