Grande Cosmetics VoxBox

IMG_2756

I received my fourth VoxBox, complimentary of Influenster, a week and a half ago. If you’re new here and don’t know what Influenster is yet, it’s a site/app that gives you the opportunity to receive and try products for free in exchange for reviewing, sharing on social media, and completing a survey afterwards.

I have to admit, I had not heard of Grande Cosmetics prior to this, but I was definitely intrigued once I got the email that I would be receiving this box. I had never used eyelash serum or primer before, but I was definitely excited to try them. Especially since I don’t have very long lashes.

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Looks [Collab with AyR Galaxy]

635

I am beyond excited to be posting my first collaboration with Rossy from AyR Galaxy! I contacted her a couple weeks ago about doing a St. Patrick’s Day makeup post. We both like trying out different looks, and we’re on a similar skill level when it comes to makeup, so I felt like we would be a great match together.

I thought it would pretty cool if we each did two looks and then split those among our blogs. I am posting one of my looks here on my blog, and Rossy will be posting the other look I created on her blog. Likewise, I’m posting one of her looks here, and she will be posting her other look on her own blog. So make sure you check out her blog post so you can see the other great looks we created!

I had Friday off work because I had to wake up at 5:30 am to take my mom to a medical appointment. She was being put under anesthesia, so she couldn’t drive. I’m usually just going to sleep between 4 and 5 am, so I wasn’t too happy about this. I had requested the day off work (even though I’m not scheduled until 2 pm) because I figured afterwards I would come home and sleep most of the day.

Surprisingly, I didn’t feel much like going to sleep once I got home. I drank an energy drink and then I decided to go get my hair done because it really needed it. I didn’t really know for sure what I wanted done, so I kind of just made up my mind when I got there. I was thinking about just getting my blonde touched up, but I also mentioned possibly wanting to go pink again. My stylist was really excited about that because she said she hadn’t got to do pink hair in years. She said everyone seems to want blue or purple hair. I actually did almost go blue too, but I decided against it since when it fades it usually leaves a greenish tint to your hair.

February Glam Bag

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.

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.
