Shopping My Beauty Samples

Hey guys! Its been a while since I have done a post in this series. I was waiting to use enough samples to make a post.

Willa On The Go Towelettes


Box it came from: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: I loved the scent of these towelettes but did not like them at all. They were easy to use and seemed to get the job done but after I used one, I started to feel this burning sensation on my face. It was not pleasant at all and it broke my face out a little. They immediately went in the trash after that and I would not repurchase these.

Skyn Blue Clay Mask



Box it came from: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: Box of 6 Mask for 39.00
Review: I was so interested in trying out this mask. I have tried previous facial products by this brand and loved them. This was a very easy mask to use, you applied Step 1 on your face first and when it started to foam up you would apply the other step until they were well blended. I was expecting it to be blue but it wasn't at all, just a white color. The mask did not harden at all and my skin looked so amazing after using this mask. I would repurchase but I think there should be more mask in a box for that price. Here is what the mask looked like on my face lol!



Youngblood Anti Shine Mattifier



Box it came from: Beauty Army
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 36.00
Review: This sample was sitting in my drawer for a while because I didn't think I needed to use this at all. Well with the warmer weather here, my T-Zone gets more oily than usual so I decided to give this a try. I was expecting a powder but when I opened it, this is what the product looked like.

I was surprised and thought it would make my skin more oily but it did not. You just apply to the oily areas and the oil was gone!! I was so happy with this product until it started to break me out! I was so sad because this really worked and was going to purchase the full size. Hopefully I will come across something soon like this.

Amlactin Moisturizing Body Lotion



Box it came from: Beauty Army
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 16.99
Review: It is sometimes a love/hate relationship with body lotions. Some of them work great and some leave my skin looking for more moisture. I love this body lotion. It really moisturized my skin and kept it soft all day. It wasn't too thick and really sank into the skin very well. I love the nice, clean scent of this lotion and I just loved using it. I have another sample size bottle of this and will be purchasing the full size soon.


So that is it for this post. Once I use some more samples, I will have another post from this series soon.

  3. The Skyn mask sounds interesting...especially that it foams. My T-zone also gets really shiny this time of year, so this Mattifier sounded really good until I read that one broke you out, I will stick with my blotting papers.

    Nice reviews!

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.



Eyes

(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. 

Face
(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
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 CHECKED OUT MY LATEST SKINCARE REVIEW??

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…
