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!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
