~My September 2011 Birchbox~

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

 I received my second Birchbox yesterday. Yes, SECOND, because my first one...was nothing to rave about. However, this one, I like. I'm not afraid to say I do!
 If you wanna know more in depth info on Birchbox click here. Other than that, you pay $10 a month and you get a box full of samples determined by their theme and your profile. I received for September:

-A Birchbox friendship bracelet
-Truth Art Beauty Birchbox Edition Face Nourish
-Jouer Lip Enhancer
-Colorescience Pro Mineral Powder in Tan
-Incoco Nail Polish Appliques

 I love those Incoco Nail Appliques! I'm going to put them on tomorrow for my birthday Friday...I wonder if they are cheaper than Sally Hansen's if I buy them from Birchbox??

The other items in the box are workable....I don't know about the mineral powder...looks too light for my complexion.

Even the friendship bracelet is cute. Think I'll wear it with my other arm candy:)

What do you think? Are you part of the Birchbox nation? Let me know what you got....

~Review~ Lush It's Raining Men Shower Gel....

Its been a rainy pre-Fall day here in my part of the Carolinas...a perfect day to break out a warm and pleasing to the weather and the season to come. I took a morning shower with Lush Its Raining Men Shower Gel to appease the senses....

"Looks like rain today."

"Get absolutely soaking wet and lather up just like the Weather Girls first commanded back in the disco days. Only this time, you're armed with one of the best shower gels you can buy. It's Raining Men is made with lotus flowers to soothe your winter-ravaged bodies and moisturizing, cleansing honey."

Its Raining Men is a sudsy,slick,and  balmy shower gel. My nose picks up alot of honey scent which not my favorite but its very mild and dissipates after while. Its reminds me Perlier Honey shower gel that I used back in the day RELIGIOUSLY. It moisturizes well and my skin stayed soft after rinsing off. A little goes a long way, so even if you purchase a 3.3 fl oz size,  you won't use it up quick....perfect for lean pockets like mine!

 I know that if I was even close to a Lush store, I would wreck the joint! Its one of those place you must put on your shopping bucket list if you are like me.

I love the Madu ( the guy on the sticker) made my bottle of Its Raining Men...Approved!!!

Yesss Gawdd Hunty!!! " Its raining men, hallelujah, Its raining men, AMEN!"

I received a free product (or products) for review purposes. I did not receive any form of compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are my personal and honest opinions

~Fresh Coat~ Maybelline Natural Beauty....

Well...I broke my ring fingernail really short and I could not save it so I had to clip it and and the other nails down. So long...long summer nails:) It was fun.

I think this Maybelline Natural Beauty shade is pretty dope. Its my perfect nude but turns dark, a darker brown over time I noticed. This is one of the shades I picked up from the Fashion Week 2012 Collection...

And...  I noticed on this blog...other shades of the collection I didn't see on my display:( Plus they're pretty! Check it out...
