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!!

  1. I'm glad you had luck with these products. The mally shadow stick, hikari bronzer, boo boo concelaer, and the coffee scrub interest me the most.

  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.

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.

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…
