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!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

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…

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…
