Shopping My Beauty Samples

Hey guys! I'm back with my new series I created "Shopping My Beauty Samples" last month. I used a few products in the past couple of weeks and here are my reviews on them.

Pop Beauty Plump Pout in Fuchsia Freesia

Box it came from: Ispy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 16.00
Review: When I first saw the color of this, I was scared of the color. It looked so bright to me and I was wondering how it would look. To my surprise, it was not that bright on me. I love the color of this gloss, perfect for Spring. It's a bit sheer but still opaque. This gloss is so moisturizing, not sticky at all and does last for a good part of the day. I only have to reapply about once, maybe twice during the day. I would most definitely repurchase this gloss. Here is a swatch of it.

Jouer Moisturizing LipGloss in Pink Glace

Box it came from:  Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 20.00
Review: This came in such a cute little sample size container and the color is so gorgeous! I love the glitter and sparkle of this gloss and the pretty pinky, champagne color. I was pretty excited to use this lip gloss. This color is very sheer, you can wear it alone or layer it over another lip product for extra shine. The only thing about this lip gloss is that it doesn't last very long. I found myself reapplying it often during the day. It is pretty moisturizing on your lips. I've only used this alone but maybe it will last longer if it is layered on top of something else. I'm not sure if I would repurchase this but I do like the product. Here is a swatch of this lip gloss.

New York Streets Dry Shampoo

Box it came from: Beauty Army
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 17.99
Review: I've heard a lot about dry shampoo and became really curious to see if it really works. I picked this dry shampoo but never used it and just wasn't sure about it. I didn't have time two weeks ago to wash my hair and decided to try it out. It sprays like an aerosol can and smells pretty good. My scalp didn't itch for a about a week and I guess it did it's job. I'm still unsure as to how dry shampoos work but will try this again. 

So that's it for the products I've used from my beauty sample drawer. I will have more reviews and post coming soon!!

Can't wait for this holiday weekend, so need a break.

I feel like my dirty clothes multiply overnight, I can never seem to complete my laundry!!

Been slacking off on working out again lol! I'll get back into the rhythm of it soon!


  1. Love the Pop Beauty lip gloss. I use Batiste Dry Shampoo and love it. Its only $7.99 I believe at Ulta. The one above seems expensive. One thing I should note though..I previously tried the original can and it only left a little white on my hair which was easy to rub in. However, I just picked up the Leopard Print bottle and it sprays out SO MUCH WHITE. It still does the job but my hair looks gray ish on my roots and I have to really fuss with it and sometimes even wet it. I won't be repurchasing the leopard can. I want to try the Batiste for red heads and see if it helps with my brown roots!

    1. Hey Tanya! I'm loving the Pop Beauty gloss too! Yea I don't think I would pay that much for dry shampoo but thanks for the suggestion. I think I will try that one out soon!

  2. I love that Pop Beauty gloss, mine is in a different shade, I love how moisturizing they are, I definitely wouldn't mind purchasing a few of those.

    1. I know, I've never heard of Pop Beauty until getting them in Ipsy and Birchbox. I would buy some more too! Thanks for reading Lily!!

  3. The Pop Beauty lip gloss is such a beautiful shade of pink! I would love to own it! I always wondered about dry shampoo sprays. I've used powders in the past and they have been ok-ish.

    1. I'm not too sure on the dry shampoo myself. I'm not sure if it's doing the job but it was interesting to try. You should try Pop Beauty, I think you'll like the lip gloss. Thanks for stopping by Keisha!!

  4. That Joeur gloss is pretty - I keep hoping one will show up in my Birchbox!

    1. It really is pretty, I hope you get one soon! Thanks for stopping by Brittnee!!

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…
