April 2014 Birchbox

Again Birchbox offers food! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yet, I am meh about this one. I dunno, I feel like I shouldn’t get healthy things after getting chocolate last time. ;D

This month’s box has nail polish, an eye pencil, color safe shampoo, and lip/cheek color. I got silver eye pencil which I have no clue how to use. I use black or brown when I use eye makeup at all. I am also probably the only woman who doesn’t use color safe hair stuff. As for the nail and lip stuff? Sure. I could always use more. I like painting my nails when it’s warm out. ๐Ÿ™‚

This box felt like I got less than usual but I’m happy with it. I hope I get more stuff in next month’s box. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

September Ipsy Bag

IMG_3398

Here’s a shocker:ย I can useย everythingย in this bag!ย There is not a single item I cringed away from in abject fear; it’s all familiar. THANK YOU IPSY!!! XD

Nope, haven’t tried any of these yet, despite the fact I can easily use any of these. Lately, it’s all I can do to get out dressed and awake in the morning. Forget getting made up. But that’s ok. Those morning’s can’t last forever. Sooner or later, the kid will get used to getting up and ready for school without having me dog her every step to get it done. :p I get halfway to work and realize that I didn’t wear any makeup. Oops…

As I could SORELY use a “Pamper the Lenni” day, those masks will probably get used first. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stay tuned for my opinions!ย My only real question is: What the heck am I gonna do with all these bags… o_O

Nuance Salma Hayek Special Collection Birchbox

I opted in to get this box inspired by Salma Hayek. The lotion smells amazing and I like the liner and anti-aging cream but I am very, VERY leery of volumizing hair products. My hair needs anti volume products. XD Especially in the most humid days of Spring and Summer, I usually gel my hair into a helmet so it can’t move at all. I will probably hand these off to someone who favors such things.

I think it’s cool that most of this can be bought from CVS for pretty decent prices. They are forever having sales and throwing Extra Bucks at customers so the cost isn’t as bad as some of the really high end stuff I see floating around.

Then again, I seem to be getting so many samples of this stuff, I may never need to buy them again. o_o
