Review on Shopping My Samples-Week 2

Hey guys! I'm back with the reviews of the samples that I used last week. I did push one of the mask to this week because of the Lush Fresh Fresh Mask that I forgot I purchased and wanted to use it before it expired. So let's get into the reviews!!

Tigi Glow Blush in Haute

Box it came from: Glossybox
Sample size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 22.00
Review: I really love this blush!! The color is so gorgeous, it gives your skin a  nice bronzy glow. I don't think I've seen a blush in this color before. It's perfect for summer. It has great pigmentation and just an overall great product. I think 22.00 is a bit much for the size of the product, I'm sure I can find a dupe out there. Here is a swatch of the blush:

Addiction NV Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Have A Mojito

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 16.00
Review: I thought this lip gloss was just okay. I really liked the minty scent it had and that it was not sticky at all. It went on pretty smooth but didn't last for too long. I had to reapply a couple time during the day. I love the color that I got, it was a very pretty shimmery bronze color. It looked very neutral on me. When I was looking for this company, it said that they were no longer available. I thought that the company went out of business but they are under a new brand name, Hey Sailor Cosmetics and have repackaged everything. I'm not sure how much this tube of gloss was under the old brand name, I'm just going by what the price is now. Here is a swatch of the gloss:

Nicka K New York Very Chelsey 350 Solid Perfume

Box it came from: Glossybox
Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Price Point: 14.99
Review: This was such an interesting product to try out! I don't think I've ever heard of solid perfume or seen perfume in this form before! I really liked the scent of this, it was a mild musky scent to me. The only thing I didn't like is that I couldn't smell the perfume half way through the day. I'm not sure if I was using it correctly or it was my nose lol! I think I probably would repurchase something like this again.

M.V. Organics Body Oil

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 80.00
Review: I really enjoyed using this body oil. The scent was a bit strong for me at first but faded as the oil absorbed into my skin. I love how soft and supple my skin felt. It really absorbed down into my skin and kept it moisturized all day. I feel this is a good quality product and would repurchase this body oil. I wish the company sold this oil in different sizes.

Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 38.00
Review: I didn't know what to expect from this product. The title of it just threw me off and I wasn't sure if it was a facial cleanser or exfoliater. It's actually a facial mask and exfoliator in one, gotta love a multi-purpose product! You would apply this as a mask and then gently exfoliate your skin as you're washing it off. This was like other mask/exfoliating products that I've used before. It left my skin feeling soft and it had a nice glow to it. I don't think I would repurchase this particular one but I would love to have a mask/exfoliating product.

Whish Correcting Gel

Box it came from: Birchbox
Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 32.00
Review: I haven't had any luck trying out gel based moisturizers. They have not kept my skin moisturized and made my face feel pretty dry. This correcting gel is different from the others I've tried. I love the pleasant coconut scent of this moisturizer. It gel moisturizer really kept my skin hydrated and soft throughout the day. My T-Zone didn't get oily at all and I really enjoyed using this product. I think I would repurchase this moisturizer, it would be great to use during the warmer seasons.

Those are my reviews for the products used for week 2. Have you used any of these products? What were your thoughts on them? Comment below and let me know!!

  1. The only solid perfume I've heard of is an MJ perfume. Rachel Talbott on YT always raves about hers, I think they are such a nifty idea, great for on the go!
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I'll have to check out that perfume. I think they are a great product, if I try one again hopefully the scent lasts a bit longer. Thanks for stopping by Lily!!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
