July Birchbox and Ipsy

Hey guys! Here are the samples that I got in this month's Birchbox and Ipsy! What did you get in your subscription boxes this month? Comment below and let me know!!

~**Drea Notes**~

It was pretty hot outside. Next time, I'll have to film on my porch lol!

I tried the new Blackberry Mojito Tea from Starbucks and its pretty good! 


  1. That makes no sense that they sent you tanning oil! Do they even look at our quizzes? I liked the tint better on the cheeks. Birchbox was way better this month.

    1. I know!! My friend got it too and she didn't like her Ipsy this month. Yea, I loved Birchbox this month. Hopefully it will be better next month!

  2. I wanted the looks pretty...but it sucks that you have to layer it so much. I liked the BM cream shadow...I used it as a base...I just wish it was a bit bigger.
    I also got the hair masks...I can't wait to try them. They smell so good! I really like that brand...they've sent me an oil and leave in conditioner...both which I've loved!

    1. Yea, I don't think the red tints are for me but it smelled like fruit punch lol! I'll have to try out the other Beauty Protector products I got!

  3. kudos for filming outside!! it's too dang hot for me!

    1. Thanks Elle, it was a bit hot but I did the video in two takes which was good!

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! 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! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

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…
