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!!

~** Drea Notes **~

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!!

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…
