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

    1. I don't think it is squeezable but it does look it could be lol! Thank you so much Liz and thanks for reading!

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…

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.
