Julep Mail! By Denise

Julep Mail! By Denise

  Julep Mail!! Getting Julep packages always make me happy because I’m never disappointed! For this package, remember when I sent in an email in regards to their missing wrapping supplies for one of my polish sets? They sent me a gift card for a free nail polish (worth $11.20) but instead, I used it for this set! Well, let’s get into this!   Tiny little white box. This is what’s inside. The wrapping is so pretty! I love the green bow! This is the Peaceful Trio. All of them are in a matte suede finish. See the micro shimmers? The set comes with Brit (a purplish grey gun metal colour) , Hailee (a grey/muddy green gun metal colour) and Minka (a red/bronze metallic). This set was on sale for $12 and I had a gift card from Julep for […]

January Glossybox 2013 By Shanelle

January Glossybox 2013 By Shanelle

January Glossybox 2013 Well I got my Glossybox yesterday, and have thought about writing this blog for a while. I  kept thinking about how great Glossybox has been and then I looked at this box and felt blah. The last two boxes I have received from Glossybox has been, to put it frank, lack lustre to say the least. It seems since they raised their prices the quality has gone downhill. For the amount of money I spent on this box I could have drove to my local drugstore, picked everything up and then bought myself the newest issue of People. I hate being a negative Nelly but I was hoping for a great box this time and just felt disappointed. Nonetheless here is what I got. TooFaced: Lip injection Extreme: I guess I should start with the TooFaced lip […]

My January Starlooks Box! By Sanaa

My January Starlooks Box! By Sanaa

My January Starlooks Box! Last post of the day! I received my Starlooks box a few days ago, and was pleasantly surprised at the number and quality of the products after my experience with my Glymm bag. Unfortunately, through my New Year’s purge, I had to reevaluate by budget and decided that Starlooks also had to go. This was a hard decision for me, particularly in light of how great this box was, but the $20 monthly price tag (including shipping) was a little steep for me. We’ll see how I feel after my final box in March, and if I would like to resubscribe at that point. With that being said, let’s take a look at my wonderful box! This month’s box was a lovely mint green colour with a gold elastic ribbon. The inside was lined with a […]

My January Glymm Bag

My January Glymm Bag Another month, another Glymm bag. Initially, I was super excited to get my Glymm subscription. It was one of the most reasonably priced ones out there and the brands were definitely luxe and well sized. However, as time went on, I found myself less and less excited to get this sub, and in December I finally bit the bullet and cancelled. As a result, this will be my final Glymm bag. You can infer how excited I was about this bag by how few pictures I took of it. In order, here is what I received: 1. La Fresh Facial Cleansing Wipes (2): Nothing to write home about, but happy to have these on hand as I will be travelling in March and they will be useful for that. 2. 360 Skincare Lavender Mint Firming Serum: […]

My January Ipsy Bag

My January Ipsy Bag

My January Ipsy Bag Hi everyone! I’ve been so behind in posting my reviews, so it’s going to be a blitz of a day! I’m slowly cancelling my subs, and it has been a hard decision choosing which ones to keep (…. well, for some boxes more than others). Ipsy is a definite keeper for me – I’m always excited about most of the brands, and I’ve found the quality and sizes of the samples to be well worth the price paid (even with shipping to Canada). So here we go….   This month’s bag was in a navy blue colour, with a lighter blue and white star patterned lining. It was a cute bag, but I’ve received so many other ones that I prefer both from Ipsy as well as Glymm that this one was just average for me. […]

February 2013 Topbox: The Benefit Edition

It FINALLY arrived!!!! About a month ago topbox subscribers got a chance to bid on special topboxes and there was a Benefit box available , so naturally i jumped on the chance. Then I found out that it was a type of lottery to get the box you ask for, so I was a bit bummed. However, sitting in my mailbox today was a special topbox from Benefit EEEKKK!!!! It is a gorgeous pink celebrating the year of the snake.The box is fantastic and included an awesome assortment of little Benefit goodness.   Dandelion Wishes kit First thing I discovered was the Dandelion Wishes kit. It came with a gorgeous pink face powder and a matching corally/pinky lipgloss. I am saving this little duo for my trip to Edmonton, and will do a little review for you later 😉 Full […]
