I’m a little late getting this post up. It’s already March! I’ve been quite stressed out at work this week, and as soon as I get home I just feel like crashing. That’s what I almost did tonight too, but I had to muster up the motivation to get this up so that I don’t stray too far off schedule.

The bag:
The design this month has a classy and elegant feel to it, though it’s not one of my favorites. I don’t dislike it either, I’m just sort of indifferent to it. I don’t really use the bags though. I just kind of hoard them.

Valentine’s Day: Sweet and Sexy Makeup Looks

598

Happy Valentine’s Day! I haven’t done a makeup look since the Fall when I did my bonfire look, so I thought it would be a good time to do another one. I actually did two looks, though they’re both the same except for a change in lip color. It’s interesting how a certain lipstick shade can change a whole look.

I do apologize for the bad lighting in the photos. I tried to capture the makeup as best I could, but the lighting in my house is horrible. That’s mostly why I haven’t been doing makeup looks lately because I don’t have enough time in my schedule to get photos during the daylight. I will be glad when the sun starts staying up longer.

Becca Bright Eyes VoxBox

I received my third VoxBox from Influenster, and this time it’s the Becca Bright Eyes VoxBox. I have to admit, I had never heard of this brand before. I’m always excited to try new products and brands though. I thought I was just going to be receiving one product, but I ended up getting all three products from the Bright Eyes collection.

The Becca Bright Eyes collection is made for use on the under eye area to get rid of puffiness and brighten skin. The set includes Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer, Under Eye Brightening Corrector, and Under Eye Brightening Setting Powder.

Ulta’s Love Your Skin Set #2

As mentioned previously, I purchased two of these Love Your Skin sets from Ulta. I just couldn’t resist since I thought $30 was a good deal to be able to try out nine different brands and products. They might be travel sized, but that still only adds up to just over $3 for each product. Both sets were equally appealing to me, so that’s why I got them both. You may have already seen the first set I posted about. This is the second.

The bag
I’ve read some comments from other people about how they dislike the bag and think it’s tacky. Personally, I like it. I love the mesh and neon colors that were chosen. It was designed to resemble a running shoe, and although you can’t see it in the photo (whoops), the zipper has little shoelaces attached. It’s funny that I would like an athletic style makeup bag, since I’m not into sports or running, but somehow I do.

Ulta’s Love Your Skin Set

I was doing some shopping at Ulta recently when I saw they had some Love Your Skin sets for $30 each. (The supposed value is between $71-$75). You get 9 products in a set, but they are all sample/travel sizes. Still, that evens out to just over $3 per product, so I thought it was a great deal. You also get a $5 off coupon that you can use if you spend $25 or more on any of the brands featured in the box. I couldn’t decide which set I wanted to get, so I ended up getting them both.

I’m a bit obsessed with skincare and trying new products. Even though I’ve already found some great products that work for me (I know they say if it’s not broke, don’t fix it), but I’m still always on the hunt for new products. I can’t help it. Trying out new brands and products, even when I already have ones I love, has actually allowed me to find some of my most loved products. Plus, I actually get a little bored of using the same things over and over again. Switching things up every once in a while helps keep my skincare routine interesting so that taking care of my skin doesn’t feel like a chore. (Thankfully my skin is mostly okay with this, but I know that using products your skin isn’t used to can cause irritation or breakouts for some people).

Ulta Haul: Skincare & Must-Haves

I did a little shopping at Ulta again. (It’s my favorite makeup store!) I was almost out of sheet masks and some of my must-haves that I use almost everyday, so I had to buy some more. Of course I couldn’t resist buying a few new products that I’ve never used before either. I just love trying out new products! Speaking of which, there are some goodies that I purchased but won’t be including in this post. I want to do a separate post (or two) on those, so I’ll be posting about those within a week or two.
