Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy Thursday!! I am loving this warm Fall weather so far. I haven't been in my beauty samples enough lately but I have tried a few that I wanted to share today. Let's get into the reviews.

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Box It Came From: Sephora
Price Point: Between $18-72
Review: I got this primer when I redeemed 100 points at Sephora (I'm there a lot lol). I have heard so many things about this primer, I had to try it for myself. I really like the silky texture of this primer and how smooth it goes on. You have to be careful with how much you apply because it can give a white cast on your face. It gives my foundation a nice, flawless look and covers pores very well. I do get very oily in my T-Zone but other than that, I really love this primer. I may invest in the full size but this travel size has a lot of product that will last for a while.

Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Box It Came From: Birchbox
Price Point: 8 mask for 42.00
Review: I always love getting new facial mask to try out. I thought the packaging on this mask was so cute! There was more than one use in this container which I loved. This mask when on so smooth and made my face feel so soft and looks amazing. I would most likely purchase this again. Here are pictures of the mask and me wearing it lol.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer

Sample Size or Full Size: Sample Size
Box It Came From: Birchbox
Price Point: 24.50
Review: I tried a cleanser by this brand and really loved it. I figured this toner would be just as amazing and it was. I loved the refreshing scent it had and how it felt when I sprayed it on my face. It gave my skin some extra moisture in a way and I just love it. I would purchase the full size bottle.

Klorane Soothing and Relaxing Patches

Sample Size or Full Size: Full Size
Box It Came From: Ipsy
Price Point: Box of 7 for 21.00
Review: I love trying out masks for the under eye area. I thought there was only one patch in each package but there is a set for both eye areas. Here is what the eye patches looked like.

They went on very easy and I loved the cooling sensation. I did feel very relaxed when I had these patches on. My under eye area looked so refresh and bright after I used them. I would most likely repurchase again. Here is a picture of me wearing them lol.

So that is it for Shopping My Beauty Samples. Have you tried any of these products? What were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know. See you guys Sunday!! Enjoy the weekend!

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.

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…
