Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy Thursday. I hope you guys have been enjoying the week so far. Today I'm bringing you another post in my Shopping My Beauty Samples series. Let's get into the reviews!

Kate Spade Walk on Air Perfume

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 25.00-95.00
Review: I have quite a few perfume samples and I really like trying different scents. I had no idea that Kate Spade had perfumes at all, I just know of their purses. I really loved this perfume. It was such a fresh scent, perfect for everyday. This has notes of Lily of the Valley and Magnolia. The floral scent wasn't that strong but it was just enough. I would pick up the roller ball in this fragrance, it is perfect for spring.

Hey Honey Take It Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 32.00
Review: I have a few products from this line and this is one of the first ones I've tried. I haven't tried a peel off mask in a while. This one was pretty easy to remove and left my skin feeling really soft and smooth. I think I would purchase this one.

Christine Brinkley Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 34.95
Review: It seems like a lot of former super models are branching into the beauty industry. I was really interested in this daily exfoliating polish. I normally exfoliate my face at night 1-2 times a week. This polish was really gentle and not abrasive at all. It left my skin feeling really soft and smooth. I may purchase this in the near future.

Mica Beauty Cosmetics Cream Eye Shadow in Bronze

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 14.95
Review: I have previously tried another eye shadow by this company and loved it. I thought this was dried out when I opened it but it was not. I love how creamy and smooth this shadow it. It glides on the lids so smooth and is very pigmented. I am really getting into using cream eye shadows and I would pick up another one by this company. Here is a look I created using this shadow.

Cover Girl Bombshell Volume by Lashblast Mascara

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: This mascara was in one of those limited edition boxes. I really like the mascaras that I have tried by Cover Girl. This one is a two step mascara for those bombshell lashes. You would use the base coat first and then the volumizing top coat. I thought this mascara was pretty good. It did make my lashes look longer than give them volume. I may repurchase this, I'm on the fence about it. Here are some pictures of both sides of the mascara.

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio Eye Shadow Palette

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 17.95
Review: I thought this was a cute little palette. It would be perfect for traveling or keeping in you makeup bag. I love how the three shadows complement each other and can create a nice day or night look. They are pretty pigmented and easy to blend out. Here are pictures of the shadows, swatches and a look I created. I'm not sure I would pay this much for this palette but if the company sold these individually, I would purchase them.

LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Wildest Dreams

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 8.00
Review: This is the cosmetic line launched by Birchbox and I was excited to try something out. This is such a pretty color and so pigmented. This was not drying at all and had a pretty good wear time. I really like this and would probably purchase and other products from this line. Here is a swatch.

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.
