Shopping My Beauty Samples

It has been a while since I've done a post in this series. I have so many samples that I need to use up and get through. I forgot sometimes to use them lol. I have used some that I am going to share today.Grab a snack because I am sharing a lot today!  Let's get into the reviews!



RMS Beauty Makeup Remover Wipe




Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 1.00 for one, 16.00 for 20 pack
Review: I am always up for trying out new makeup remover wipes. This one was really different from others that I've tried. This was coconut oil based and I thought when I first opened it that it was dried out lol.I used to use coconut oil to remove my makeup and cleanse my skin at night. It really got all the makeup off and was pretty gentle on my skin, I think I would repurchase this.

Mally Beauty Eyeshadow Stick in Copper Rose


Box It Came From: Essence Beauty Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 25.00
Review: I have tried out other products by Mally Beauty and loved them so I knew I would love this too. I have never tried an eyeshadow stick before and I really like them. It is like you have a lot of control of where you place the shadow and it is very easy to blend out. It is easy to layer on the color for a more intense look or keep it subtle. This color is so gorgeous and perfect for everyday. I would repurchase this. Here is a swatch.



Hikari Shimmer Bronzer in Radiate


Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 17.00
Review: This is such a pretty palette. It seems like it has a blush, bronzer and highlight in one. Here is closer look at the palette.


The bronzer is a little too light for me so I mixed it with the highlight shade and it was so pretty! It was the perfect golden glow.  I really like the blush color as well. I like that you can use the blush as a highlight as well. This is a great multi- purpose product and this is something great to travel with. I think I would repurchase his. Here are swatches of each one.



Boo-Boo Cover Up Concealer in Medium Coverage


Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00-20.00
Review: I have heard so much about this concealer and was happy when I finally got one to try lol. This shade was perfect for my complexion and I really love the coverage. I would say this is medium-full coverage concealer. It blended out so smooth and did not crease at all. Also a little bit of this goes a long way. I would repurchase this concealer.

Hanalei Lip Treatment



Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 25.00
Review: It is hard for me to find a lip treatment that keeps my lips moisturized all day and I don't have apply so many times. I really liked using this one. I was a little thick but not so much and it did keep my lips moisturized. I don't think I would pay 25.00 for a lip treatment but I do like this one.


Frank Body Original Body Scrub



Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 16.95
Review: I always love a good body scrub and haven't tried a coffee scrub in a while. I really loved how this smelled like coffee which is very refreshing in the morning! It was pretty gentle on the skin if you do not like those rough scrubs and my skin felt amazing. The only thing I don't like is how messy this makes your shower!! There was coffee scrub everywhere and it was a little hard to clean up. Other than that, I really liked the scrub and would purchase. Here is what the scrub looks like.




Paula's Choice Resist Vitamin C Spot Treatment



Box It Came From: Essence Beauty Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 55.00
Review: I have heard so much about this company and their products. I was so excited to give this a try. I have noticed a few dark spots from acne that I wanted to get rid of. This really helped fade those spots away and I was pretty impressed. You don't need too much of this of product for a spot treatment. I so couldn't bring myself to pay for the full size but I will have this one for a while.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil



Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 42.00
Review: I was super curious to try out this primer. First it is an oil that is supposed to be the base to your foundation. I have an oily T-zone so I was interested to see how this would work. Of course I still got oily but this worked really well. It settled in so well into the skin and my makeup stayed all day! I don't think I would repurchase this primer but I will enjoy the rest of this sample.

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! Have a great week and see you Thursday!!

  2. The coffee scrub looks just like coffee grounds, I would probably enjoy that and crave for coffee afterwards. I've never heard most of these brands but glad they all worked well for you.

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.



Eyes

(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. 

Face
(B1-Jumbo Fluffy Brush and M439-Deluxe Buffer)
I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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!

~**Drea Notes**~
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…
