Thursday Reviews: Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy late Thursday! Man things have been a little crazy this week but things are going well. I haven't done a post in this series in such a long time. I have so many samples waiting to be reviewed. So let's get right into the reviews!!

Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 19.99
Review: I really enjoyed using this eye cream. The under eye area stayed moisturized and felt smooth. I loved the consistency of this, it wasn't too thick and blended in very well. Mostly likely, I would repurchase this.

Dove Pure Dry Oil

Box It Came From: Ipsy and Walmart
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 9.00
Review: Funny thing is that I received two samples of this products in different boxes. I really love the scent of this oil! It has a rich, thick texture but it not too heavy. It doesn't feel greasy at all and works so well with my hair. I would most definitely repurchase this hair oil.

Marc Anthony Oil Of Morocco  Argan Oil Hair Spray

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 8.99
Review:  I normally don't use hair spray when but decided to give this a try when I straightened my hair. It does smell like the typical hair spray but doesn't stay around long. My hair didn't feel sticky or hard at all and my curls stayed all day. I was really impressed with this hair spray. I think I would purchase the full size.

Pacifica Duo #2 Shadows and Ethereal Shadow

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: Unsure
Reviews: I really love the colors of the shadows. They are great neutral colors for everyday. The colors were not what I expected when I used them. They are a little sheer but you can build up the color. I would  most likely purchase other products from this brand. Here are swatches of each shadow.

Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagent Mascara

Box It Came From: Sephora
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 24.00
Review: I got this mascara with racking up 100 points at Sephora. I have only tried foundation from Makeup Forever so I excited to try another product. I really love this mascara! It really enhanced my natural lashes and made them look so long and full. The wand is so interesting to me, here is a picture of it. I would repurchase the full size!!

City Colors Creamy  Lip Stain in Flirtini

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 5.00
Review: I was excited to receive this lip stain. I haven't had a lot of luck with many lip stains and hoped this would be good. I really love the color of this lip stain and it is very pigmented. It didn't feel drying at and had a pretty good wear time. I would repurchase these. Here is a swatch.

Mica Beauty Mineral Eye Shadow in Harlequin

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 14.95
Review: I really love this pigment. The color is so gorgeous and it is so pigmented. There is very little fall out when applying this. I love the packaging and the top so you don't spill anything. Here is a picture of the inside packaging and a swatch. I would purchase more mineral eyeshadows. 

So that is it for Shopping My Beauty Samples. I have a lot more samples to review so be on the look out for more post in this series. Have you tried anything else products If you have, what were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know! See you for Fashion Sundays!!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
