Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy Thursday!! It seems like Summer is still trying to hold on lol! Today is another post from my Shopping My Beauty Samples series. Let's get into the reviews.

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 25.00
Review: I was pretty excited to try this mascara out. I always love trying out new mascaras. I have been loving this mascara. It makes my lashes look so long and it really separates them. Here is what the wand looks like.

I really like how it is curved so it hugs your lash line and gets your lashes evenly. I'm not sure about purchasing the full size, this sample seems like it would last me for a while but I may invest in the full size at some point. I have a picture for another sample where I am wearing the mascara.

Mitchell and Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 46.30
Review: I really like using facial oils with my nighttime regiment. This oil has a bit of a nutty scent but it is not too strong. You only need about 3 drops for your whole face and it absorbs so well into your skin. My face looks refreshed and is still moisturized when I wake up in the morning. I may purchase the full size oil when I finish with the ones I have to use up.

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 24.00
Review: I was so excited when I saw this in my box! I already love Benefit Cosmetics and knew I was going to love this product. I forgot to get a picture of the brush but it is nice and small to help shape and fill in the brows. I love how it shapes my brows and fills them in. The picture the with next product I'm going to talk about will show my wearing this product. I may purchase the full size. I have Maybelline's Brow Drama that does the same thing but less in price.

Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in Fifty Shades

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 22.50
Review: I love trying new brands that I haven't heard of before. I was excited to try this mineral eyeshadow. I love the packaging so you don't spill the shadow if you knock it over by accident.

The color of this shadow is so pretty and it is very pigmented. It doesn't have a lot of fall out when you apply it. I just love it. I think for the size of the container that it is a little over priced. Here is a picture of me wearing the shadow along with the Eyeko mascara and Benefit Gimme Brow. Also a swatch of the shadow.

Skone Cosmetics Eye/Lip Pencil in Wine

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 15.00
Review: This was an interesting multi purpose product. You can use this an eyeliner or lip pencil. I chose to use this as a lip pencil because of the color. It take a little bit for the color to show up but this pencil stays most of the day and only had to touch up once. I think I would purchase more from this brand. Here is a swatch of the pencil.

Liptini Special Edition Lipstick in Scarlet Cocktail

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 18.00
Review: This lipstick is perfect for Fall and I really like the formula of it. It is very moisturizing and doesn't feel dry at all. It has a pretty amazing wear time and I only have to touch up once during the day. I think I would purchase more lipsticks from this line. Here is a swatch of the lipstick.

  4. I've never tried any of the products you've mentioned but am really interested in the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara! It's interesting to see the mascara is in a squeezable tube package (is it squeezable? It looks like it to me? lol). I'm really loving your beautiful selfie! The makeup combo is gorgeous <3

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. 

(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!

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…
