January Birchbox and Ipsy

Happy Tuesday!!  I'm just waiting around for this "Blizzard" to start. I normally do videos for my Birchbox and Ipsy but I'm starting to come down with something and I don't want to be sniffing and blowing my nose on camera lol.  Here is a look at the first boxes of the year!!

Birchbox


This is the first time I got a pre-made box through Birchbox. I found this one to be really interesting with products I haven't received before. This is the Relax and Recharge box.

When Travelmate Sheet Mask ~ I have received masks like this in previous boxes and have really enjoyed them. I love the way they leave my face feeling super smooth and soft. I can't wait to try this out!

Perlier Intensive Nurturing Body Balm in Shea Lavender ~ I was excited to see this in my box. I love a good body balm with Shea Butter in it. I don't smell the lavender too much, more of the Shea but it is a good body product.

Manna Kadar Lip Locked Lip Stain in All of Me ~ This is the only repeat product that was in the box. I tried the other sample I received and I love this lip stain. It's not drying at all and has pretty good wear time.

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream ~ I was excited to give this eye cream a try. This one is supposed to help with the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles. Hopefully this will work.

Briogeo Don't Despair! Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask ~ I love when I get to try new hair products, especially hair mask and deep conditioners. This seems like it would be a great product for my hair.

TeaPigs Teas in Liquorice and Peppermint and Chamomile Flowers ~ These were bonus items in the box. I love trying out new teas and these flavors seem pretty interesting.

Ipsy


This month's theme was Fresh Start which was fitting for the new year. I really liked the bag for this month. It is blue on one side, white on the other and has an orange zipper. It seems like a durable bag that would hold up for a while.

Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush ~ You can never have enough makeup brushes. I love the color of this brush and its pretty soft.

Eco Beauty Good Day. Day Moisturizer ~ I love the packing of this moisturizer. I wish most samples came in bigger packing. I could probably get a few uses out of this and can't wait to try this out!

Pacifica Eyeshadow in Ethereal ~ This is the second eyeshadow product I have received from this company. This is such a pretty light brown shimmery color. This seems like a great everyday color to wear.

Velvet 59 By Paris Manning Lip Gloss in Noisette ~ I really like the color of this gloss. It is a really pretty brown, nude color. Hopefully this gloss isn't sticky at all.

Hikari Eye Liner in Storm ~ I really like the silver, grey color of this liner. I don't think I own anything in this color.

So that is it for what I received in my Birchbox and Ipsy this month. There will be full reviews on these products with my Shopping My Beauty Samples series. I hope to have a video soon as I feel better. What did you get this month? Comment below and let me know. Be safe if you are supposed to get snow and see you guys Friday.

Week 3 Fitness Challenge Update- I forgot to update on Sunday but I completed last week and starting to see some results. I am in the last week of this challenge but I will continue to workout.

  1. I was hoping to get that lip gloss in my bag. Your birch box looks better than others that I've seen.

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??
~**Drea Notes**~
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…
