Shopping My Beauty Samples

I can't believe that Christmas will be here soon! I need to start wrapping my gifts soon and so happy I finally got the tree up. Well, my son reminded us that it had to be up so Santa can put the gifts under the tree lol. It has been a while since I posted my beauty samples and I have so many to go through lol. Let's get into the reviews.

Ayers Body Polish in Pampas Sunrise

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 25.00
Review: I really love trying new body scrubs. I have tried Ayers body butter before and really loved it so I knew I would love this as well. I like that it is not abrasive at all and leaves your skin feeling super smooth and soft. Sometimes I don't like the coarse, rough body scrub and want something that feeling a little more soothing. I probably would repurchase this.

Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 35.00
Review: You guys know my love/hate relationship with facial serums and this one is a love. I have tried other products by Evologie and have really liked them. This serum worked really well with my skin (meaning I didn't break out at all) and I just really loved the results after using this for a couple weeks. I most likely would repurchase this.

Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss In Queen B

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 6.00
Review: I have been loving this lip gloss and wearing it a lot lately. I love the dark purple color which is perfect for this time of the year and it is not sticky at all. It has a nice shine and pretty good wear time. I have so many other Be A Bombshell products that I haven't tried or used yet but so far, I like this company. This gloss is super affordable and would repurchase. Here is a swatch of the lip gloss.

Quidad Curl Immersion Triple Treat Deep Conditioner

Box It Came From: Essence Beauty Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 38.00
Review: Using a deep conditioner is such an important step in my hair routine. I have tried so many out and will be adding this to my list of favorites. I really like the pretty thick and creamy texture of this deep conditioner and how my hair felt after using it. My hair was super soft and it really helped define my curls. I love that it has coconut, grapeseed and avocado oils which are amazing benefit for your hair. I will be repurchasing this.

Naked Beaute Exfoliating Facial Scrub

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: I was really interested in giving this scrub a try because of the cranberry in the ingredients lol. This facial scrub is pretty amazing and loved the results I got. My skin felt super soft, it had a nice healthy glow and it felt so smooth. You don't need a lot of this scrub at all and it is a little rough but not too much. I will be repurchasing this one.

Naked Beaute Morroccan Facial Fruit and Clay Mask

Box It Came From: Onyx Box
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: I haven't tried a powder based mask before and it was pretty interesting. I didn't want to spill anything as I was pouring it out to use. It mixes really well with water and applies pretty smooth. I was not expecting the mask to dry so tight on my face but loved the results. My skin was smooth and supple. I would repurchase this mask.

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. See you guys Thursday!

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.


(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.

I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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…
