November Birchbox!

I got my November Birchbox in the mail a couple days ago. I LOVE getting my Birchbox in the mail, its like Christmas every month! If you don't know what Birchbox is its a monthly subscription for $10 per month. Each month they send you a Birchbox filled with 4 deluxe beauty samples and one "treat" or "extra". Sometimes you even get full sized products. You can cancel anytime which also makes it quite convenient. Here is a picture and a list of what I received. All prices and sizes listed are for the full sized products.

1. Klorane : Soothing Eye Makeup Remover 3.4 oz $9

2. LaROCCA Skincare : Champagne and Shimmer Body Polish 6.76 $35

3. Oscar Blandi : Jasmine Protein Mist 250ml $18

4. Zoya : Nail polish in Noel .5fl oz. $8

Do you have Birchbox? What did you get in your November box?

E.L.F Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette

Today I was browsing around in Target, in the beauty section of course, and came across this palette from ELF (Eyes, Lips, Face). I saw this palette last year and debated on getting it, but ended up not because I wasn't sure if I would use this many eyeshadows, and of course, regreted not buying it. Well today I HAD to buy it!

As you can see this palette has a great color range. The neutrals are mostly on either side and the colors are in the middle of the palette. It contains 144 eyeshadows!

The pigmetation on these is pretty good. There is a nice mix of matte and shimmery shades which is great because I don't own many mattes. I always gravitate to shimmers! These color swatches are without a base (even though its important to use one). As you can see the shimmers are very pigmented while the matte ones ( towards the top) need a little help as they are a little chalky.

Here are some of the mattes over a white base. They are much more pigmented and go on smoother with a base underneath.

I would definetly recommend this palette from beginners to professionals.

In my opinion it has all the colors you will EVER need!

I believe this palette is limited to the holiday season but may be permanent on the ELF website

This palette can be found at Target and retails for $15 or at

Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner Review

Today I am going to review two limited edition gel eyeliners by Maybelline.
The two limited edition shades that I will be reviewing are Forest and Sapphire. These gel liners are nicely pigmented and have a shimmer to them while most gel liners dry matte or with a slightly shiny finish. They apply very smoothly and you can get a nice crisp line when you use an angled brush. I prefer to use an angled liner brush versus the brush that they come with. I find the brush that comes with the liner is kind of awkward to use and doesn't apply as well as an angled liner brush does. Overall I LOVE these liners. They are very pigmented, last all day, and are easy to apply. I would definetly recommend them to anyone!

Here are swatches of both

Top: Forest
Bottom: Sapphire
