Bye Bye Birchbox, OnyxBox is My New Wave!

Now, OnyxBox is nothing new — but because I’m cheap and already had a subscription to BirchBox I was too lazy to try it for myself. It wasn’t until recently when their General Manager reached out to see if I might be interesting in receiving one to try out that I decided to look into it further, and let me tell you I’m so damn happy Chaia contacted me. I didn’t even plan on writing a post on it, but…

New Red Alert! LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick

You all know I love a strong red lip. My go-to is generally Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso, but when I find other good reds I have to give them a shoutout. I recently got my hands on the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick ($10) in my March Birchbox and brought it along with me to Cuba. I had never previously heard of the brand LOC and was pleasantly surprised at just how pigmented the color was. It’s just the…

My Favorite Products: November

With being a beauty blogger I am of course constantly scouting and trying new products each week or even each day. However, I feel it’s important to have a routine in the products you use and stick to what works best — this is when you really see results. So, I decided that each month I’d highlight the products I use most consistently that don’t necessarily fit into my weekly reviews. Here are my favorite products from November. MAC Studio…

Beauty Must-Haves For an Impromptu Night Away from Home

The other day my girlfriend Natalie and I were discussing items that women should always have in their purse when going out with a guy — you know, just in case you decide not to go home… If you’re like me, you usually travel with a mid to smaller sized cross body bag or clutch when out on the weekends, so we have to be strategic. Here are some purse / wallet friendly beauty must-have items I’d recommend keeping on…

My November Birchbox Products!

Birchbox is truly the easiest way to test out a variety of new beauty products and I highly recommend it for all beauty lovers. Here are my products for November! Clinique Cream Shaper For Eyes ($16.50) A.K.A. eyeliner, haha. I love when brands give a fancy name to very simple products. My phases with eyeliner go in and out, I’ll spend months not wearing it to achieve a more “fresh faced” look, and then I’ve have a phase where I’m…

ARROW Hydrate Soothing Facial Mist

I really wish I had discovered this product sooner — I absolutely LOVE the ARROW Hydrate Soothing Facial Mist ($12). First off, ARROW is a brand created by Birchbox that specializes in lightweight, long-wearing makeup and skincare to accommodate an active lifestyle. The brand has makeup products like a cheek tint and color enhancing lip balm that actually stay on throughout a workout. I’ve never been the type to want to wear makeup to the gym, but this is very tempting!…

Facial and Body Scrubs You Need Now!

Scrubs are a godsend. I wasn’t going to write a post today, but after trying this body scrub by Kopari I was so satisfied I just had to share. I received it in my May Birchbox and not only does it smell amazing, the results were instant. The Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub ($28) is made with the highest quality coconut oil to help hydrate skin and is mixed with brown sugar and tiny pieces of Tahitian coconut shell to buff…

BirchBox Review: RMS Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes

One of my favorite ways to learn about and try new beauty products is with the company BirchBox – it’s ridiculously convenient and fun. Basically, for $10 a month they send me 5 samples of different beauty products that fit my specific needs. For the month of March I didn’t exactly like my selection – however, this month my favorite samples were the RMS Beauty Ultimate Makeup Remover Wipes ($1 for individual; $16 for 20-pack). As you know from my previous…
