Julep - November 2014 (The Friendsgiving Collection)

Julep is a monthly nail polish subscription box (as well as the occasional beauty/skin product), and it's amazing. It's so addictive to receive new polishes every month and be able to pick what you want to get. There currently now is MyMaven for $24.99/month or $19.99/month if you prepay fo…

Boxycharm - October 2014


Boxycharm is a monthly subscription that costs $21/month. They have monthly themes and send items based on those themes. I've seen boxes average 4-5 items, but some have more items. All of the boxes in a month are usually the same (shades may vary), which is good for spoilers. You also have the entire month to sign up and still be eligible to get that month's box. Shipping does take some time, though. They post that they have 5-10 business days to send you box out. 

They have a referral program also that earns you charms. Other ways to earn charms includes reviewing items you receive each month as well as bonus charms for taking a box three months in a row. The charms can be redeemed towards month-specific items which will be sent in your next month's box! This box came fairly quickly, took less than a week from ship date to arrival (shipping email took a few days to come, though).

ipsyMe Smashbox Lipstick Trio Bundle

This was an ipsyMe event from a couple months ago, but I never got the chance to rave about these lipsticks! Along with the three Be Legendary lipsticks (all minis), they also came with this amazing bag that's perfect for putting my lip products in to throw in my purse! 


There are the two comp…

Make-up by One Direction! + Giveaway link

Brand Backer teamed up with the makers of One Direction's Make-up line to have us try it out before it hits the stores! I have to say, I was not expecting it to be so colorful and have so many products to try, but I was pleasantly surprised!


This picture is with flash, to show the true-ness of…

Loot Crate (FEAR) - October 2014 + Coupon Code!

Disclosure: This post contains referral links.
What Is It?:Loot Crate is a monthly gaming and geek subscription box that sends 6-8 items each month that caters to a theme of some sort. They don't do spoilers except for what the theme is, which kills me! It was nice to open a true surprise, thoug…

Lip Factory - October 2014

I finally bought into another box and decided on trying Lip Factory. While the name is Lip Factory, they do included other makeup products other than lip products. Once a quarter, they have an 'only lips' box that is 100% lip products, so I will probably keep this subscription until the nex…

Graze Box - Nibble Box

Like I've mentioned before, you can get the box weekly, biweekly, or more often if you prefer, and it's always $6/box. Using my referral link, you can get your first and fifth boxes free. You can also cancel at anytime, and review items to decide if you want to get them again or never. Also…

Allure's Sample Society - October 2014

Sample Society is brought to us by Allure Magazine and includes five deluxe sized beauty products (hair, makeup, and skin). It is only $15 and they charge tax in certain states (I'm not sure which ones, but I was charged an extra $1.05 in Georgia). Included with each box is a coupon for $10 off…

Starlooks Starbox - October 2014

This was my first month getting Starlooks Starbox, and I have to admit I was very disappointed. I was expecting some amazing box after looking at past month's boxes, but instead I got one thing and paid way too much for it (in my opinion).  For those that don't know, Starbox is a subscript…
