Too Faced You Drive Me Glazy Review

Hi everyone,

Happy New Year! For my first post of 2023, I have a review and this time it’s a review of the Too Faced You Drive Me Glazy Gift Set. If you’ve been reading for a bit, then you know that around the holidays I typically pick up one of the Too Faced sets. Out of all the ones they released this holiday season I like this one the best and thought that I would get the most use out of it.

So, this set comes with the palette, a mini mascara and an eyeliner. Being called You Drive Me Glazy, it is donut inspired and you can see that with the packaging and the shade names. However, like Too Faced likes to do, it’s supposed to be glazed donut scented and it’s just not. It does have a scent that’s vaguely sweet, but not enough for me to say ‘Oh wow, that smells like donuts.’

So, getting into it, the mascara it comes with is a mini of the Too Faced Better Than Sex. I don’t even have to say anything here, Better Than Sex is a holy grail mascara for so many people, myself included. It has a permanent spot in my makeup collection and it is honestly one of the only mascaras you’ll ever need. So good, so iconic.

One of the things that drew me to this set is that it came with an eyeliner and I hadn’t yet tried a Too Faced liner. The one in here is the Killer Liner Eyeliner Pencil in Killer Black. This says it’s a 36 hour waterproof eyeliner and in the couple of times that I’ve worn it, I can see that. Once you put it on, it’s on and I really like it. I definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven’t.

Moving to the palette, they certainly went big with this one. The packaging is honestly so cute, the outside says ‘Too Faced’ in gold and ‘You Drive Me Glazy’ in white and gold. There’s little stars/snowflakes dotted around that are also gold, there are four different donuts, on the bottom there’s one that’s with white and has a chocolate swirl, next to that is one that’s pink glazed with little round sprinkles. In the top right corner is a classic chocolate glazed donut with multicolored sprinkles and one the left side is a mint glazed donut with chocolate sprinkles. And to top it off, there is a pink and white ribbon like you might see on a box of donuts. Too Faced always does a fantastic job with their packaging and the little details.

Moving to the inside of the palette, they carried over the theme from the cover. The donuts are the same, but smaller with more of them and ‘Too Faced’ is written in the center in gold.

When it comes to the pans for this palette, they kept true to the theme and made them round and compared to holiday palettes of years past, the pan size is pretty good for how many there are. One thing about this palette is it’s not just eyeshadow, it’s eye and face and the face palette comes in the form of four large pans at the bottom.

All of the face products have a nice little shimmer to them and you get a decent shade range. From left to right, the first shade we have is Pink Poinsettia which is a very light pink, that is on the peachy/pink side but because it’s on the lighter side it’s very buildable. Next to that is Drive Me Glazy, which is what I would call a light orange/peachy shade but it’s so pretty. A light dusting of this would add so much to any spring/summer look. Then there’s Kiss Miss and I’ve already worn this and it’s not as bright as it photographs and it blends out really nicely. And the last shade is Fawned Of You, now I did do two layers of this in the swatch because in person it was looking a little light, but it photographed SUPER orange. It’s not that aggressive, but you can definitely tell it’s that orangey/brown and it’s super pigmented.

Now, onto the eyeshadows. There are 20 of them and I swatched them in the rows they appear. The first shadow we have is Son Of A Nutcracker, five points if you know what movie that’s from. But this is a medium nude matte shadow. Next to that is Tinsel In A Twist, a lighter brown shadow. Then there’s Ho Ho-Nut. This one is so pretty, I’ve already worn it and I like it a lot, but it’s a metallic pink champagne/light rose gold. Second to last is Drummer Girl, which is a matte and I would call this somewhere between a blush and pink mauve. And the last shadow in the row is Maple Bar, which is another brown but it’s more chocolate toned than the Tinsel In A Twist.

The second row starts with Bake It Happen which is another matte nude, but this one is more pink based. Next to that is Such A Snowflake, a really pretty metallic light champagne shadow. Then there’s Rum Pah Pum Pum, a brown that tone wise is between the browns in the first row, but this one was slightly patchy when I was swatching it, so I’ll be interested to see how it is on the eye. The second to last shadow is Dough What Fun, which is exactly what it says, it’s somehow that perfect nude/dough color. And the last shadow in the row is Jam-Packed. While it is very pretty and I like it a lot because of the pink/berry shade, I have to say I’m not in love with the performance of this shadow. I wore this the other day and as the day went on it just eroded away, so when I took my makeup off at the end of the night, there was very little of the shadow left on my lid. I am going to wear it again and see if anything changes and I hope it does.

The third row starts with Butter Half, which is a matte yellow, but it’s more of a yellow/orange. Next to that is Chocolate Hunk. This is a deep chocolate brown, I have this on today, and I really like it. It blends well and it’s very buildable. Then there’s Santa Claws, which is a metallic copper, which is a color I always really like. The second to last shadow is O Hole-y Night, which is matte light brown, but it reads like there’s an orange undertone. And the last shadow in the row is Chestnuts Roasting, which is a chestnut brown with gold glitter. This one was also a little patchy on the swatch, so again, I’ll be interested to see what it’s like on the eye.

The fourth and final row starts with S’more To Love, which is a metallic deep brown with multicolored shimmer. Next to that is Fir Sure, another metallic, but this one is a deeper green with brown undertones, think tree if you will and it also has multicolored shimmer. Then there’s Twinkle Sprinkle, I’m wearing this today and I quite like it. It’s a metallic yellow/gold. The second to last shadow we have is Blueberry Blitzen. This is such a pretty and unique shadow. I like it a lot, but it gives me mermaid/peacock vibes and it has pinky/purple shimmer. And the last shadow in the row is To All A Good Night, which is a matte black and honestly it’s something that every palette, especially one of this size, needs so it was a good choice.

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I really do like this palette and I’m excited to do more with it. Be on the lookout for a ‘Three Recent Looks’ post because that will definitely be happening at some point.

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

July 2022 BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my July BoxyCharm box and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. We’re in the middle of summer, so the theme for this month is Out Of Office, which makes sense for a lot of people. It is vacation season.

IMG_1950

The first item we have is the The Beauty Crop Liquid Eyeshadow Duo in Ginger and Prosecco. This is a double ended, long wearing liquid eyeshadow. One side, Ginger in this case, is a creamy velvet pigmented matte shadow and the other side, Prosecco, is what they call a dazzling liquid glitter. They say these are easy to blend, and they can be layered, mixed or matched. They have 6 of these double ended shadows in total, in a range of fun colors, which I appreciate. While I do like these colors, I don’t really wear liquid eyeshadow a lot and I didn’t swatch these because I’m going to give this to a friend who loves liquid shadows. I did get a code from The Beauty Crop and if you use BFA25 at checkout, you receive 25% off orders over $30 on their website and this is valid until the end of July. 

IMG_1956

Next we have the Beauty For Certain Whole Lotta Mascara. This is a volume boosting, lash doubling, insta enhancing mascara. This is a brand that’s new to BoxyCharm and looks to be newer in general as they don’t have that many products on their website, but what they do have is looks like it might be good. I like the general shape of this brush and if I like this mascara, I’ll try more from their website and let you know what I think. 

IMG_1957

IMG_1958

Moving on, we have the Byroe Fig Renewal Oil. This is a nourishing dry oil that offers complete skin renewal that results in silky soft and effortlessly ageless skin. This has fresh fig, jojoba oil, pro floral concentrate and omega rich superfoods to revitalize and nourish. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly into skin. So here’s my thing with this, it looks and sounds really nice, but I’m really thrown off by the fact that it says ‘Salad Infused Beauty’ on top of the box, that doesn’t sound very nice. Although, when you smell it, instead of it smelling like fig or something light and floral like you would think, it smell has that ‘lettuce with dirt on it’ smell, which might be where the whole salad thing comes in, but it’s weird to me. You also get 0.67 FL OZ/20 ML for $72, which is just outrageous to me. But I’ll use it a couple times and see what I think. I hope for all this, it’s incredible. The bottle is gorgeous though, so it has that going for it. 

IMG_1960

IMG_1959

IMG_1961

The second to last item we have is the Alleyoop Stack The Odds in Sassy Pants. This was my Choice item for the month. This is a 3 in 1 stackable compact with a cream blush, bronzer and highlighter. This has jojoba and sunflower seed oil for a natural glow and when I swatched them they were smooth, creamy and seemed to be very pigmented. On the inside of the box it says ‘$10 on us, meetalleyoop.com/gift’ and if you go to the website, you put in your email and you get a $10 credit. 

IMG_1964

IMG_1965

I think the idea of a stackable compact is super cute and perfect for traveling/throwing in your purse on the daily and this one does have a little mirror. 

IMG_1966

IMG_1968

IMG_1969

And the last item we have is the Eloise Beauty Prism Luxury Eye Shadow Brush Set. This set has four brushes made with synthetic fibers that seem very soft to me and a holographic prism handle. There’s no actual description of the brushes you get, but it looks like an angled eyeshadow brush, two flat eyeshadow brushes, and a really small eyeshadow brush, the type I like to use for putting shadow under my eyes. 

IMG_1970

IMG_1971

IMG_1972

IMG_1973

IMG_1974

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same items in your July BoxyCharm box let me know and if not, I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your items and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: BoxyCharm, A Year In Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be doing a BoxyCharm Year In Review. I got a lot of great boxes this year and had a ton of favorite products, so I thought it would be good to put them all together and share what I really loved.

January:

The January box was a strong start to the year, and my favorite from this box was the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. It didn’t feature in any of my recent looks posts, but I do like it and I do use it, it tends to fall to the back of my bronzer drawer, so I need to make a spot for it towards the front.

IMG_7176

IMG_7184

IMG_7185

February: 

Ace Beaute made a really great impression in BoxyCharm this year, at least for me, and one of the things I loved in February was the Ace Beaute Nostalgia Palette. I use this all the time, I think it’s a super fun and versatile palette, in fact I talked about it in yesterday’s post. The other thing I loved in February was the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip & Cheek in Rendezvous/Swipe. I use Rendezvous solely as a lip product and I like it a lot. It’s a very pretty shade of pink.

March: 

The March box had three items in it that I either loved already or have become staples in my makeup collection. The first of which is the Lime Crime Venus III Palette. This palette is super cute, it has some super pretty shadows in it and I love the versatility it affords. Then there’s the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara which I’ve loved pretty much since it came out, it’s so good and always does my lashes good. The last product is one that I was initially unsure of because I don’t love rose in beauty and skincare products, but it’s turned into one of my favorites and it’s the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. This locks in your makeup and you don’t feel sticky. Because of the rose water, it’s actually kinda refreshing.

April: 

In April I received the Flirtacious Looks Monarch Lash Pack and these lashes are SO good! It came with two pairs, Baby Girl, an angled lash and Charmer, a round lash. The second thing I loved from the April box is the Eloise Beauty Get Gleaming Body Glow Illuminator in Champagne Rich. I used this a lot during the summer and it gives a great glow but is also buildable so you can have your desired level of glow. 

IMG_7919

IMG_7924

IMG_7927

May: 

The May box saw me receiving two things that I have since repurchased and have talked about so many times since. The first is the Sophia + Mabelle Hydrating Hybrid Lipstick in Topless. This is a nude lipstick with the hydration of a balm and it’s so, so good. I honestly recommend, especially if you’re a nude lipstick fan. The second is the Murad City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer. I mentioned this in my Winter Skincare post and it’s an excellent moisturizer because it not only moisturizes, but it protects against blue light which is perfect for me because I do spend a bit of time on my computer. My skin definitely likes Murad. 

IMG_8187

IMG_8209

IMG_8206

June: 

The June box had two things that very much screamed summer to me, a bright lipstick and glowy skin. The bright lipstick came in the form of the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Famous Red, which has become a go to of mine in my red lipstick collection. The glowy skin came from the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Palette, I talk about this all the time, you guys know how much I love it. 

IMG_8488

IMG_8502

IMG_8504

IMG_8506

July: 

In July I got a great mix of great makeup and skincare. The Ofra Mini Mix Palette in Good To Go is something I already loved, so when I saw it was a choice item for July I picked it and it turned out to be a great choice because I just hit pan on the bronzer and because these are magnetic pans, I can just swap out the new and old ones. The BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black has become something I reach for a lot in my eyeliner drawer and I like it a lot, you have a lot of flexibility so you can do the thin precise line or you can do a thick and dramatic wing. On the skincare side, this is when I got the Mudmasky Vitamin Infused Eye Serum, I also talked about this in my Winter Skincare post and I love it, I can see a difference since I started using it.

IMG_8803

August: 

The August box featured what as become a go to eyeshadow palette for me, the Dito Cosmetics Venus Palette. I used this palette a lot during college football season and when I did my gold eye look for yesterday’s post, this is what I used to do it. I’m also a space nerd, so that made this palette extra fun for me. My second August favorite is the Volition Hibiscus Unspottable Correcting Oil. I have a couple of dark spots on my face, and this has helped tremendously, it’s a great product. Definitely recommend it you’re looking to get rid of any dark spots. 

IMG_9035

IMG_9037

IMG_9033

September: 

I’m gonna be honest, this was not my favorite box of the year. I did and do like the GlamGlow YouthMud Glow Stimulating Treatment. This is the OG GlamGlow product that made it what it is today and when you use it you can see why. Obviously the more you use it, the more results you see, but when in the 10 or so minutes you have it on, you can tell a difference. The exfoliating properties give you smooth, glowy and soft skin. The other thing I liked in this box is the Half Caked 813, Duo Fiber Brush. I use this for blush, and it gives you an airbrushed finish. It’s also super soft and I like the colors, I don’t have a lot of brushes in this color. 

IMG_9285

IMG_9303

IMG_9314

October: 

The October box was fantastic. I feel like as we got closer to the end of the year, the boxes got better and better. I’ve talked about this palette a number of times since getting it, but the October box gave me the Ace Beaute Falling For You Palette and I still love it so much. I used it yesterday and it’s still great, the color range, the mix of mattes and shimmer, the color payoff and the formulation are all top notch. This box gave me something I had never tried before, and that was the Appeal Cosmetics Adhesive Liner. I’ve worn this a few times and I do like it, I find it to be quicker and easier than messing around with lash glue, and we all know how much of a mess that can be. I also received a set of lashes that I love, they’re from Camara Aunique Beauty and they’re the Mary Lash. They do give you volume and that oomph that you want from a false lash, but it’s very natural. The last thing in this box that I love is the Tresluce Beauty Like An Artista 4 Piece Brush Set. I know that at the time I received this set the brand was fairly new, but for a new brand they seriously smashed it with the brushes. They’re all super soft, blend nicely and they’re nice to grip. 

IMG_9433

IMG_9445

IMG_9447

IMG_9449

IMG_9451

IMG_9454

November: 

In November I genuinely loved everything in the box, and I don’t know if that’s happened in the time I’ve been doing BoxyCharm. It started with the Ace Beaute Eyeshadow Amplifying Base in Light, I talk about this all the time, it makes your shadow last all day and it amplifies both mattes and shimmers without being too sticky and tacky. Then we have the Violet Voss Violet Sunset Palette. For being a smaller palette it has a lot of versatility and the colors are so, so pretty. I’ve been using this a lot recently. The Hanalei Beauty Company Matte Bronzer is one that has quickly made it’s way into the front of my bronzer drawer, I love that it’s on the lighter side so you can build it up as much as you want and you get that nice Hawaiian glow. The Luxie Pautips Por La Noche Brush Set was nice to see because I really like Luxie brushes and this came with a cute little pouch which is currently holding these brushes and all the random single brushes I had. The last product in this box is the Bodyography Makeup Brush Cleanser. I used this recently when I cleaned by brushes and having it in the spray bottle was so much quicker and easier and I feel like it didn’t take as much to clean them as it usually does. 

December: 

I won’t be revealing my thoughts and favorites from the December box in this post, but I will be doing so in my monthly favorites like I always do. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same overall Boxy favorites let me know and if not, I’d love to know what you loved from BoxyCharm this year. 

Until next time, enjoy your products, I can’t believe Blogmas is almost over and I can’t wait to see what I get next year in BoxyCharm :).

July BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my July BoxyCharm box and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is FantaSEA. It’s supposed to be like all of your makeup and skincare fantasies coming true, but the FantaSEA element creates a perfect tie in with summer.

IMG_8792

So the first product we have is the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black. This is a jet black liner with a tapered and flexible tip so you can create a bold or thin line. This says it has a long lasting formula that dries down quickly and has a matte finish. I don’t actually have any eyeliners like this right now, and you can never have to many different styles of eyeliner, so I’m happy to see this in this box. 

IMG_8798

IMG_8799

The next product we have is the AlleyOop Makeup Pen in Make A Mauve. Does anyone remember those pens from childhood that had the multiple colors in them and to select the color you slid down the little tab? Well, this pen is that in makeup form and my inner child can’t get over it. This pen has four different makeup products in it, a coffee brown eyebrow pencil, a black eyeliner, a champagne highlighter and a mauve lip pencil. This is also vegan, cruelty free, paraben free, phthalate free and lead free. I think this pen is adorable, on one side it says ‘I like your face (with a heart emoji).’ There are two other versions of this pen, a lighter one and a dark one, and I’m excited to try this out. I also think that having four of the makeup essentials in one little pen you can just throw in your bag is super handy and I like it a lot. 

IMG_8800

IMG_8801

IMG_8802

IMG_8809

Moving on we have the Mudmasky Vitamin-Infused Eye Serum. This is a Vitamin C eye serum that is supposed to give your skin a moisture boost and vitamin boost while feeding, nourishing and firming. It’s also supposed to help in reducing dark circles and can be used on all skin types. I’ve been seeing Mudmasky everywhere lately and hearing good things about them, so I’m interested to try this out. 

IMG_8803

The second to last item we have is the Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Outcrease Retinol Trifecta Serum. This serum has retinol, retinyl acetate, retinyl palmitate, ceramides and Vitamins C and E and is supposed to do a whole host of things. It’s supposed to target the signs of aging, wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone and enlarged pores, promote increased cell turnover and improve the look of UV damaged and congested skin. Giving you brighter, smoother, firmer and rejuvenated skin, it’s also suitable for all skin types. I have two serums that I’m using right now that I really like, but this sounds really nice and I’m definitely going to give this one a try. I do have to say, if you’re got this in your box or are planning on just buying one, because it has so much retinol in it, be careful because it can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. 

IMG_8805

And the last item we have was my choice item for the month, the Ofra Cosmetics Good To Go Mini Mix Palette. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while then you might be thinking you’ve seen this palette before and that’s because you have. During the January BoxyCharm Add-On I picked this up and I’ve been using it a ton since then. I got this one because the pans are magnetic and you can switch them out and I’ve hit pan on the bronzer and one of the highlight shades. I’ll link the post where I talked all about it and included swatches, but this is a great palette and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a multifunctional palette. 

IMG_8806

IMG_8807

IMG_8808

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same items in your July BoxyCharm box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my August box :).

June Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my June Favorites. I have a good mix of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my June BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that yet I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Makeup Palette. This is a multi use face palette with a gradient shades to bronze, blush and highlight. My first impression of this palette is that it was gorgeous and after using it, it truly is gorgeous. All of the shades are super pigmented and when it hits the light, it becomes one of the best highlighters I’ve used. I definitely recommend giving this palette a try.

And my last Boxy favorite and last beauty favorite, is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 2489, Famous Red. Nars lip pencils are some of my favorite lip products, I have a few in different shades, and this one is so good. This has a non drying, long lasting formula with Vitamin E and emollients that make it creamy and give you seamless matte color for hours. This red in particular is not too deep or too bright but it’s a vivid color with just enough richness. 

Moving on to a couple a random favorites, these two kind of go together. Now that we’re in summer the weather has gotten nicer, but over the last couple days we had a really unusually warm heatwave, 100+ degrees heatwave, and having air conditioning really helped. Another thing that helped, because I was hydrating and drinking so much water, was Body Armor. I like it more than Gatorade for hydrating, it has coconut water in it and doesn’t leave behind that cloying sweetness that Gatorade sometimes can. They also have a ton of flavors and different sizes, so you’re guaranteed to find something you like. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month it’s the Queen and Paul Rodgers Return Of The Champions concert. I have the album version of this on Spotify and I listen to it all the time, but I recently rediscovered the DVD version and it’s such a good concert. I think that the collaboration with Paul Rodgers is the best that Queen has done, their styles and voices go together so well, it just feels like a natural fit. I also have to say, because it does get forgotten, that Roger Taylor has a really nice singing voice. I definitely recommend giving this a watch and a listen if you haven’t, it’s a lot of fun. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your June favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great June :).

June BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my June BoxyCharm Box and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Dare To Dazzle, and it fits very well with the items in the box.

The first  item we have is the OPV Beauty Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette. This is an 18 pan palette with a mix of matte and shimmer shades. You get a pretty decent size mirror with this palette and that’s always really nice. Normally I would swatch an eyeshadow palette, but I’m going to give this to someone and I don’t want to mess it up and touch it. If I’m being completely honest, just looking at the shadows, there aren’t any that excite me and I think it’s a little overpriced. 

The next item we have is the Luna Magic Beauty Va – Va Voom Pink Lash Primer. This is a mascara primer that has a natural wax formula with a creamy texture and new and innovative emulsifier to add volume and length to your lashes. I think it’s cool that this is actually pink because I haven’t seen a pink lash primer before. I don’t actually use a lash primer, but my mom does so I’m going to give this to her. 

Moving on we have the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glowdient Makeup Palette. This is a multi use face palette with gradient shades to bronze, blush and highlight. This palette is gorgeous, I took pictures in the sun and inside and this is a palette I can’t wait to use. I will say that I accidentally smudged the second swatch and didn’t notice, so in the picture it doesn’t look as good as it actually is. There are five shades in this palette and you get a nice mirror, which is always great to see in a face palette. 

The second to last item we have is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 2489, Famous Red and this was my choice item for the month. This is a matte lipstick in pencil form that has a non drying and long lasting formula with Vitamin E and emollients that gives a creamy texture and ensure you have seamless matte color for hours. I have a few of the matte lip pencils in various shades and I absolutely love them. This red in particular is really nice, it’s not too deep or too bright but it’s vivid and rich in color. I definitely recommend giving one of these pencils a try if you haven’t already. I also took pictures of this swatch in the sun and inside.

And the last item we have is the LoveScript Wild Lavender Body Wash. This is a very thick and luxurious body cleanser that gives you an epic velvety foam with just a dollop. You can either use this on a loofa or poured directly into a bath and the lavender scent is supposed to soothe and elevate your senses. I really like the body wash I’m using now, but this one smells really good and it sounds really nice so I’m interested to try it. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same items in your June BoxyCharm box let me know, and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your items and I can’t wait to see what I get in my July box :).

January BoxyCharm Add-On Haul

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you what I bought during the BoxyCharm January Add-On sale. I usually pick up one or two things depending on what’s available and in January I found something I really wanted to try out.

What I picked up is the Ofra Mini Mix Face Palette in Good To Go.

This palette is magnetic and when you pop it open it says, ‘Smile, you are beautiful.’

IMG_7296

This is a full face palette, so you get six eyeshadows, a blush, a bronzer and a highlighter. The pans are magnetic, so you can easily pop them out and switch them around/replace them. 

IMG_7297

Starting with the eyeshadows, you get six and there is mix of mattes, shimmers and metallics. The first shadow we have is Clean Slate and that is a nice peachy shimmer. Next to that is Reset, a matte orange that has some brown in it. Then there’s Fresh, which is a gorgeous metallic mint green. Next to that is Ready, a matte red that has some orange in it. Then there’s Ambition, which is a metallic brown with some gold shimmer in it and the last shadow is Goals, which is a metallic rust/coppery shade.

Moving on, there is one blush and one bronzer. The bronzer is in the shade Current, and it’s a nice light/medium brown that appears to be buildable. The blush is in the shade Intentions and it’s a slightly deeper pink.

The highlighter is the main focus of the palette, and it’s Ofra’s best selling highlighter, All of the Lights. This has four different shades in it and you could use them individually, but when you blend them together it creates a gorgeous champagney/gold that has a ton of depth.

That about wraps it up for this post, I’m really excited to use this palette. The eyeshadows seem really nice, the formulation and pigmentation, from the swatches, seems like it’s really great. If any of you guys have this palette, I’d love to know what you think of it. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many face palettes :).

January Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. This month was busy, but I still managed to get a good group of favorites together.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my January BoxyCharm box and I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it yet. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. This has four bronzers in rectangular pans and they range from light to dark browns. They’re very buildable and blendable and if you’re looking for a face palette, I definitely recommend giving this one a try.

My last Boxy favorite is the Bali Balm Sweet Orange & Coconut Lip Balm. This smells so good. It has sweet orange and coconut essential oils, Vitamin C which evens skin tone and the coconut moisturizes and makes your lips really soft and supple. This is great for the winter months because the cold really can chap your lips, but this would be great year round.

IMG_7187

My second to last beauty favorite is the KVD Go Big Or Go Home Volumizing Mascara in Trooper. This is a long wearing, smudge resistant mascara that really does live up to it’s name and gives pretty extreme volume. This has a pretty decent wand and it does coat all of your lashes. I like this mascara a lot more than I thought, and I definitely recommend it. 

IMG_7045

My last beauty favorite is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Collection Vault. I love these palettes, they each have nine shadows and there’s so much versatility within them. I’m going to do a recent looks post about each palette, but I’m having a lot of fun with them and I 100% recommend them. 

IMG_7077

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion favorites. The first is my blue light glasses. I’ve been wanting a pair of blue light glasses for a while and now that I have them I’m so happy. Not only are they super cute, but I have definitely been able to tell a difference since I’ve been wearing them. These are from Zenni Optical and if you’re looking for a pair of blue light or glasses in general, I would check out Zenni because they have super reasonable prices. 

IMG_7034

My next fashion favorite is some new Indianapolis Motor Speedway gear. I wanted something new for the upcoming IndyCar season and I didn’t have anything to rep IMS, so I got a hoodie that is a light/medium blue and says ‘Indianapolis Motor Speedway’ in white and red glitter with the logo under it. 

IMG_7210

The second thing I got is a v neck t shirt that says ‘W. 16th St’ in white with the logo on the end and it’s shaped like a street sign. 

IMG_7228

My next favorite is my birthday. This year was definitely different than other birthdays I’ve had and even what I was wanting to do, but my family and friends made a great birthday weekend for me and it was a lot of fun. 

My second to last favorite is my new gaming chair. I’ve wanted and needed a new chair for a while so I asked around and Tony Kanaan recommended Maingear, so I looked around their website and found one that I wanted. The chair that I went with is the Forma R in white. This is a pricier chair, but the quality you get is definitely worth it. It’s pretty much broken in now and is super comfortable. It comes with a pillow, which is incredibly soft, and I use it when I’m gaming at night and talking to friends. 

IMG_7161

IMG_7160

My last favorite is a music favorite and it’s my 2020 Spotify Wrapped playlist. This was my December music favorite, but I’m still loving it because it has a great mix of music. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your January favorites were. 

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great January :).

January BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

This morning I got my January box from BoxyCharm and I thought that now would be the perfect time to go through it. The theme this month is perfect for January, as it’s Fresh Start.

IMG_7176

The first product we have is the Dr. Brandt Do Not Age With Dr. Brandt Triple Peptide Eye Cream. This is a super hydrating peptide powered cream that is supposed to recharge tired looking eyes for a more rested look, reduce puffiness and fade dark circles, diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines and help to restore and replenish moisture. I do like a good eye cream and Dr. Brandt is a great brand, so I’m interested to try this out. 

IMG_7178

Next we have the Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya. This is an oil and silicone free moisturizer that is supposed to give you lightweight and lasting hydration without feeling greasy. This has Moringa Water, Papaya and Willow Herb, which are to help clear pores of dirt and impurities and reduce shine. This is paraben free, formaldehyde free, synthetic fragrance free, phthlate free, mineral oil free and cruelty free. This is recommended for combination and oily skin. I really like the packaging on this with the shape and color of the pot. 

IMG_7180

Moving on we have the Ciate London Velvet Eyeshadow Palette. This is a relatively new palette and it has a mix of soft shimmers, hyper metallics and velvety smooth mattes. This formula is supposed to be very pigmented and have super soft application. I really like the packaging on this palette, it has a matte pinky/purple top with ‘Ciate London’ written in rose gold and the bottom of the palette is a shiny rose gold.

IMG_7181

You get a good size mirror on this palette, which I always appreciate.

IMG_7182

This is a 12 pan palette and the shadows have a wavy look in the pans. There is some irony here, I didn’t think that I would get this palette in my box so I ordered it from Ciate before I got the box. I already told a friend they could have this particular palette, so when I get the other one I’ll swatch it. 

IMG_7183

 

 

 

The second to last palette we have is the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. This is my Choice item for the month. This palette is brown and the top has a matte flowered design with ‘Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise’ in a white square in the middle of the palette written in gold and there is a gold boarder. 

IMG_7184

For a face palette, this has a good size mirror and the mirror has a gold boarder around it. 

IMG_7185

With this palette you get four bronzers in rectangular pans and they range from light to dark browns. 

IMG_7186

They look darker in the pans, but when I swatched them I found that they all seem to be very workable and buildable. 

IMG_7188

And the last product we have is the Bali Balm Sweet Orange & Coconut Lip Balm. This has sweet orange and coconut essential oils. The sweet orange has a ton of Vitamin C which evens skin tone and protects against free radicals and the coconut moisturizes so you get soft and supple lips. This smells really good it has a tropical, citrusy and sweet scent and it’s bee friendly. I love a good lip balm, especially during the winter months because the cold can really chap your lips. Bali Balm has a deal going on on their website right now that is in conjunction with BoxyCharm, so if you use the code VALENTINES21 you get 55% off of your order. 

IMG_7187

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your January box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my February box :).

Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection Review

Hi everyone,

Today I have a fun post for you and it’s a review of the Too Faced Enchanted Beauty Unbearably Glam Collection. I got this for Christmas and I’ve been using it since. So with this collection you get three pieces, there’s a mini mascara, a face palette and an eyeshadow palette. This has a holo look as well, it can be pink/purple or it can be a teal/turquoise.

IMG_6956

IMG_6957

The mascara that you get in this collection is a mini Better Than Sex. This is one of my favorite mascaras and a holy grail item for a lot of people. This has a nice big brush that coats all of your lashes, the formula is great because it not only gives you volume and length but it doesn’t transfer or flake. 

IMG_7111

IMG_7112

The next item we have is the face palette. This has a very glamorous design, it has diamonds and sparkles with a gold mirror that says ‘Too Faced’ in the middle and a grey/black bow on top. In this face palette you get a blush and a highlighter. 

IMG_7108

The inside of the packaging is pretty as well. The top is teal with a gold mirror that says ‘Too Faced’ in the middle and has a gold and pink crown and on top of the mirror is a grey/black sparkly bow. The bottom, where the powders are is a shiny gold. 

IMG_7109

Onto the actual powders, the blush is in the shade Makeup & Be Merry. This is a brighter pink and you can easily put on too much, a mistake I made when I first put it on, but with a light hand it can look really nice. The highlighter is in the shade Angel Kisses. It’s a nice champagney gold and it has a nice sparkle to it, I like it a lot. 

IMG_7110

IMG_7115

The eyeshadow palette is very glamorous as well. It has diamonds and sparkles, a gold mirror with a white bear in the middle that’s wearing a pink diamond necklace, a gold and pink crown and on top of the mirror is a sparkly grey/black bow. Under the mirror is a teal banner that says ‘Too Faced’ in black. 

IMG_7113

This palette has 12 shadows and they’re a mix of mattes, shimmers and glitters.

IMG_7114

I swatched these in the rows they’re in in the palette. The first shadow we have is Christmas Dreams and this is a light pink with a lot of silver sparkle. It looks really light in the picture, but it’s buildable. Next to that is Special Delivery and that is a matte light brown that has some light purple undertones. The last shadow in the row is All I Want, and that is a dark purple with silver, gold and purple glitter in it. 

IMG_7116

The second row starts with Silver Bells and that is a neutral glitter that is silver and brown. Next to that is Boxes And Bows and that is a matte light rosy pink. And the last shadow in the row is Lords A Leapin’ and that is an iridescent light pink that would be a great topper.

IMG_7117

The next row starts with Candy Cane and that is a hot pink shimmer that I really like. Next to that is String Of Lights and that is a dark pink glitter. And the last shadow in the row is Nutcracker, which is a matte dark brown. 

IMG_7118

The last row starts with Blue Christmas and that is a shimmery blue/green, it’s very pretty shadow. Next to that is Sex & Sleigh Bells, a black shadow with silver and blue glitter in it. And the last shadow in the row is Ice Queen which is a white/blue glitter that has various colors of glitter in it. It’s really pretty. 

IMG_7119

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have this collection or any of the others that were a part of the Too Faced Holiday Collection I’d love to know what your favorite shadows are. 

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).
