November GlossyBox Reveal

I have been so very happy with the subscription box service GlossyBox! I joined them in August when a friend posted a 3-month discount link to them. I was a little on the fence because I’ve seen the contents of some of the other subscription boxes people get from other sources. But I figured 3-months was worth a shot.

WOW – am I ever glad I joined. I just ordered another 3-months with them and this is the box I received this week!

First off they send a mini magazine every month with the products that are included as well as many other trending cosmetic and beauty products. Everything that I’ve gotten has been either full-size or a VERY generous sample size (not little packets, but samples that you can get many uses out of).

This month was a full size Illamasqua Make-up Pencil. The color is Spell and it’s a beautiful pink/coral/red that can be used on the lips or eyes. I’m really big on wearing pink on my eyelids and have several pink eyeliners already, so this is one more to add to that arsenal! It glides on smoothly and really makes a pop on the eyes which for me is a fun way to wear it to work with the next item. I like it! This product is made in the UK.

Kryolan for Glossybox blusher in Glossy Rosewood is also a multi-purpose cosmetic that can be worn on eyes, lips, and cheeks. Again it’s another pink shade, so this one too, will go on my lids. I’ve worn pink and charcoal on my eyes for years. It’s flattering and fun! I like that its matte. I used this with The Balm Matt Batali eye shadow I got in my Ipsy/MyGlam bag a couple months ago. These two are a great combo for me for work. This product is made in Germany.

The last full size item is Incoco Nail Polish Appliques. These real nail polish strips contain, basecoat, color coat, and topcoat in one strip. What a time saver! And they are 3-free – no dbp, toluene, or formaldehyde! The color is Sinderella and another perfect reddish shade I will wear. I’ve never worn nail strips, so I’m pretty excited to try these. They look like they are full enough for anybody’s nail, and since mine are wide and long I think these will work perfectly. 16 double-ended strips are included in each package. This product is also made in Germany.

The Nu-Me Arganics Argan Oil is 10ml and comes in a dark colored bottle with a dropper. I’m already a user of Argan oil so I’m looking forward to trying this brand. This product is made in the USA.

The last item is a “sample” size Skin & Co. Truffle Serum in a .5oz tube. This Hydro-Toning Day Face Serum is non-greasy and soaks rapidly into my face. I like the feel of this one and I like the fragrance which is light coconut (which is one of the extract ingredients). I don’t always like the way serums look or feel on my face but having used it once, I can say that I do like its texture. This product is made in Italy.

Also included are generous discount certificates for Nu-Me and Skin & Co.

If you’re on the fence about this box, you can also try just a one-month subscription. Or if you really want to save, go for the 12-months! That’s what I will be doing when this one expires! There is a link over there —–>; that will take you directly to the site, or you can click here.

Give it a try and let me know what you think. Or if you already subscribe, please let me know how you like the service!

**Apply Top Coat to our Glitter Finish Polishes to smooth any slightly rough edges**

Ice Dancer – I love the sparkle and glitz of the costumes and the fancy footwork of Ice Dancers. When designing this holographic glitter mix of blues, silvers and browns in a blue base, I wanted a “topper” that could be worn alone with opacity in 2-3 coats or dress up favorite undies with its shimmer.

Terrified Collection

 

Anybody that knows me will tell you without a doubt that Halloween is and always has been my favorite holiday. My earliest memories of it were as a small child and my dad dressing up with me to take me trick-or-treating. When I got older we always had a party with cider, warm cinnamon donuts and apple dunking with my friends. One year we were visiting my grandparents and my mean boy cousins made me walk through a graveyard with them if I wanted to trick-or-treat. Even so, I will always cherish these memories.

 

Spider Funk is full of orange and red glitters and small irregular shaped black “spiders”, plus silver hex “full moons” that all stay shiny in the orange matte base. Wear on its own, layer over black, orange, burgundy or green, or with clear topcoat to bring out even more bling!

Opaque in 2 coats or wear over black to see the darker side of our favorite monster.

I Love a Holo

A few months ago I blogged about a swap I had with a lovely Brazilian girl. She sent me some polishes by Ellen Gold that are a lovely holo. I finally wore my first one. I have way too many untried I’m trying to work my way through and thought this would be perfect to go with that gold pedi I just posted about!

In my birthday group I was gifted an Orly polish, Crawford’s Wine. It is beautiful! It was part of the Valentine’s Day Collection a couple of years ago. Since I don’t buy a lot of Orly (my helmer has less than a half drawer full), I don’t follow their releases as well as maybe I should because the ones I’ve gotten as gifts or picked up on sale at Sally are gorgeous and a dream to apply. This one is no exception. I applied one nice coat as my undies over my base. Since I knew I’d be topping it I didn’t necessarily do the best job on the base. 🙁

 

This is a photo of Ellen Gold Holo Vermelho. It actually is very dull without a topcoat. I used my normal Sally Hansen Clear 110. I wore this mani all week and only had minimal tip wear.

 

If you get the chance to pick up any of the Ellen Gold holos – go for it. This is a spectacular color, and the only reason I put undies with it was because it’s not a polish I can just go down to the store and pick up if I run out and I don’t want to do that! LOL

 

Even in the shade it’s a good looking holo! I hope you have the chance to get some of these and try them for yourself. 🙂

 

New Revlon Moon Candy Nail Polish with Swatches

ATTN: VERY Picture Heavy!

 

Friday while I was at Walgreen looking for the new WnW Saved by the Nail collection (which I didn’t find), I came across one I’ve been waiting several months to see – Revlon Moon Candy duos. I shop (stalk?) that store often for polish so the cosmetic mgr and I always compare manis and talk lacquer. She said they just put the display out the night before so I was able to raid it for one of each color. And I haven’t bought hardly any polish in months, so the eight $1 coupons she gave me was also a nice little bump to get me to buy the whole set! If you have OCD let me apologize now for the way I took them out of the rack – sorry! :{

 

Yeah I did a skittle mani last night with them. Some are AH-Mazing. Some are ok. The undies are funny ’cause some are 1 coaters, others 2. Same with the Flakies so I went ahead with 2 on each. Slow drying but some are oh so pretty! I also had to use a coat of Gelous over my usual TC. The Flakies weren’t overly rough but I wanted to smooth them out entirely. (Posche basecoat and SH Insta-Dry 110 Clear for topcoat.)

I wouldn’t go with some of the bases they did, but I’m showing them in their combinations. Also note that none of the bases have names! Some of these were easier to photograph than others, even after  up to and over 20 attempts each! Also note that some of the labels are peeling (makes for terrible pix IMO) because there are “directions” on the back that you pull the label off to read. I wanted to show you exactly what my bottles looked like while I was using them, but I will be putting a piece of tape over each one to keep them from fraying even worse!

 

Let’s start with Satellite. The base is a wine red in my opinion. This combination works pretty well together. In the store I was afraid the base was brown, and that’s not a color I wear, so I was pleasantly surprised on this one. The base on this was 2 coats.

This is the other pinky-peachy flakie in the set, Supernova. I don’t know exactly what I was expecting, but I don’t think it was this. Worn over Revlon’s choice of grey one-coat base, I think it really detracts from what this one could be. I’ll definitely being trying this one again over something else!

Cosmic reminds me of camoflouge. This dark olive green base was also a 2-coater. I like this one and they work well together too.

This is a gorgeous combination that I would wear again! Galactic is over a really deep navy blue base and the flakies come out teal colored on the nail. One coat of underwear was all this one took.

 Moondust really fooled me! It’s gorgeous blue flakies on the nail. It’s over a one-coat black base. I want to try this one over other colors!

Milky Way was my disappointment. Look at how awesome it is in the bottle. It just didn’t transcend that way on the nail. It may have been because Revlon chose to go with a deep grey for underwear, and it just sits there. I’m pretty sure this one would pop with the right base color. Just one coat for the base on this one, too.

Being that I’m a purple girl, I thought Orbit was going to be THE one for me. It is beautiful, but I really had to work at it to get the flakies out of the bottle. This one was the reason I decided to use two applications of flakies on each nail. I had to shake it well and stir the brush around inside of it to pick up the particles. It is pretty on though, over one coat of purple base.

Universe also had me fooled from the start. Again in the store the base looked brown. But I would call it a deep brick red and it’s really pretty. The flakies on this one work great. The base was one coat.

And last night I was posting these to my facebook page so you could get a quick sampling of them. So here they are in case you’re not following my page – but you should be! The link is up there ^^. 🙂

  

I think these were pretty expensive and I wouldn’t have bought them all if it wasn’t for the discounts I got at the store because I actually did only pick up half of them till I was told I could use the coupons at the counter for each one. I wish CVS had a cosmetic counter since the stores don’t carry all the same brands (we don’t have Rite-Aid) in South Florida.

So – do you want to run right out and buy them all? Or are there only certain ones you’re interested in? The bottle total weight is .26Fl Oz/7.68ml. How does that compare to the price of indies in your opinion?

So what polishes are on your must have list?

Secret Valentine Haul

Most of you reading this blog are in at least one of the nail polish or makeup groups that I’m in on the internet or Facebook. A lot of the groups do a secret pal type swap for different holidays. I’ve done Secret Pumpkin, Santa, and just recently Valentine. It’s a lot of fun to plan your gift and also to receive your gift. In one of the groups I’m in I was lucky enough to actually receive the same person to gift both Santa and Valentine gifts to. She’s a sweetheart who lives up in Mooseland, as we all jokingly refer to her Canadian home. Since I’m down here in warm sunny South Florida it is pretty fitting that she should be my secret pal!

 

On to the fun! Her nickname is Red and I just couldn’t resist the temptation of red for Valentine’s Day. On her card I wrote – I couldn’t remember if they told me to buy all the red polish or all the polish for Red. So I did BOTH! And here’s the box full of red I sent to her (and also included a pink organza bag of rawhide chewy bones for her pooch)! And I gifted her with my reddest polish from SoFlaJo’s Year of the Dragon – Dragon Heart! Yikes, there was one slight casualty, you can see the back bottle on the right with the red top. The lid was not on tight and a little polish leaked out, but she told me it wasn’t much and the bubble wrap contained it all. Whew!

                                 Red's Secret Valentine Pkg   Red's VD DragonHeart

 

Now on to the Secret Valentine package I received from my group! I was in awe when I opened it. Not only was it full of yummy milk chocolate, which IS my FAVORITE chocolate and/or candy ever, but I also got a lovely blue Sally Hansen HD polish, Spectrum. Purple and blue are two of my favorite colors! My SV knew exactly what she was doing with that one! BUT, she blew me away with a polish I’d never seen before – NOX Twilight Disco Darling. What a gorgeous silver holo glitter! OMG, WHAT do you think I had to do? Hell yeah! Hit the google button looking up that polish line. Big mistake. Now I need them ALLLLLL!!! Ayeyiyi But of course she wasn’t done YET. The pièce de résistance of this gift included TWO MORE amazing items!  A Specialty Valentine Card she had made for me by Sarah Trumbauer Creatives. With an OPI bottle on the front of the card, this gift really touched my heart. I got into nail polish collecting with my attraction to OPI and I’ve never lost that love of my favorite brand! AND the gift that actually brought tears to my eyes when I saw it – a DRAGON phone case for my iPhone! All these gifts touched me so much that someone actually paid attention to my posts and comments in my groups to be able to send me, someone she’s never met in person, everything that I would LOVE!

 

I hope your Valentine’s Day was as fun as mine was. BECAUSE I’m still NOT done!!! ONE MORE Valentine post. Then I’m going to bed! LOL
