Glossybox February

February's theme is the month of love. I assume because of Valentine's Day. Here it is March and Valentine's Day is long gone!

I'm actually quite pleased w/ this box. I LOVE eye products & they have included two!!
Sumita Beauty - Kala Color Intense Pencil Full Size
Another black eyeliner? We just got one in December's box. If GB wants to keep including eyeliner - that's fine but please send other colors besides black (or brown).
Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture Full Size
I hate pink. Hate it! It all stems back from my childhood. My favorite color was RED and my mom did my entire room in pink w/ lace and roses. I hated it. I know she worked hard on it but I felt so misunderstood.
Anatomicals - Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Wake Up Under Eye Patches Full Size
My eyes need some serious help. I have fine lines under my eyes - the kind that you can't cover up. Concealer makes it look worse because it creases. These eye patches are supposed to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles and revitalizes the skin around the eye. Yes please.
Pureology Serious Colour Care - Multi Tasking Hair Beautifier for Color Treated Hair
Deluxe Sample
This spray is supposed to prime, protect and perfect color treated hair. I've given up coloring my hair. I've learned to embrace my metallic high lights (grey hair!).
Renu - Lip and Eye Active Lift - Deluxe Sample
This cream is supposed to smooth fine lines and expression lines. Plumps deeper wrinkles, reduces dark circles and reduces under eye puffiness. I LOVE eye creams so I am looking forward to trying this. It's a generous size too.
This is going to be my last post for awhile. I have a lot going on in my personal life and I'm feeling very overwhelmed. The truth is, my heart just isn't in it anymore. I may come back when things are settled down but it's good bye for now.

Darling Diva Bitchcraft Swatches & Review

I have a thing for color shifting glitter. It's like magic to me. Bitchcraft is a charcoal holo w/ color changing glitter - the best of both worlds! The glitter shifts from red to blue.

Bitchcraft is a perfect polish. It wasn't too thick or thin. This is 3 coats. I also used Orly Bonder & hk girl top coat.

I rarely use a polish more than once but I've worn this baby 3 times now. It's one of my favorites.

Llarowe Mystery Grab Bag

I try to resist mystery bags but I couldn't help myself.

Jindie Nails - Stealth
Arcane Lacquer - Bated Breath
Darling Diva - Girly

It's not a horrible grab bag but I'm not terribly excited about it either. I think this will be my last grab bag for awhile. 

$20 @ Llarowe

Juara Turmeric Antioxidant Mask Review

Juara generously gave me this mask to review.

Juara's Turmeric Antioxidant mask is a non drying mud mask that detoxifies and brightens tired, stressed and dull skin. It's 100% vegetarian w/ no parabens or sulfates.

The verdict - I love it! It's thick and creamy - a little goes a long way! It's a great pick me up, it instantly revitalizes skin. It makes my face look fresh & it glows. It's moisturizing and my face looks brighter after just one use. 

Full Size retails $35 Travel size retails $9
They also have a trio of different mini masks for $16 - I want to try the other 2!

Cupcake Polish Holiday Mystery Box

I've wanted to try Cupcake Polish's holos for some time but they are always sold out. I couldn't resist this mystery box - hoping for a holo!

You're Making Me Blush
Pretty Penny
Soft Kitty

I got a holo - Denver! It's a gorgeous lime green.

Cupcake's holiday mystery box retails for $30 but I paid $22. Honestly, I would have been super disappointed if I didn't get a holo. Her holos retail $13 and glitters $9 - I think I got a awesome deal!!

Purple Mani in Support of World Cancer Day

Today is World Cancer Day so I've painted my nails purple to show support. I've lost 3 dear friends to cancer. I'm getting teary just thinking about them.

Darling Diva Polish - Gypsy
This polish is gorgeous!!

It's a silvery lavender holo w/ pink & blue shimmer.
I love how delicate it looks.

1 coat Orly Bonder, 3 coats DDP Gypsy & 1 coat hk girl top coat.

Darling Diva Polish

Glossybox January

GB sent a mass email - indicating that products had been held up by storms
and that we would be getting our boxes late this month.
It doesn't seem like it was later than usual - GB always shows up at the end of the month.

The Original Beauty Blender - Full Size
I desperately need a replacement so I'm super happy GB included it. 
 I use mine to apply bb cream but it can also be used to apply moisturizer.
It came w/ a sample size cleanser.

Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe - Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray Deluxe Sample
I have long, wavy hair and this product seems perfect for enhancing my natural curl.
I'm looking forward to trying it.

Vichy - Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream Deluxe Sample
Vichy does not agree w/ my skin so I'll be passing this off to my mom.
It's supposed lock in moisture for 48 hours.

Bellapierre Cosmetics - Mineral Blush Full Size
I got Desert Rose - I'm not sure if GB sent out other variations.
It's a sheer sparkly peach color. It's pretty but too shimmery for me.

I forgot to take a picture of the body wash!
Balance Me - Super Toning Body Wash  Deluxe Sample
It smells awesome! And I wish I had a bigger bottle!!

What do you think of January's box?

Colors By Llarowe Good Golly Miss Molly Swatches & Review

I've said this before and I take it back - this is my most favorite polish ever. It's the most beautiful magenta holo I have ever seen.

I picked it up at Llarowe's last CBL launch/restock. I have only heard how crazy these launches go so I really had no idea what I was getting myself into.

It was crazy! I spent about 8 hours trying to score all the polishes I wanted. I suggest having a launch buddy - she made the day way more fun than it would have been.

Application is a dream. Not too thick or thin. It's the perfect polish.
One coat of Orly Bonder. Two Coats of GGMM and one coat of hk girl top coat.
It lasted 5 days w/ no chips!

Good Golly Miss Molly is going to be restocked the first week of February

Darling Diva The White Witch Haul

Darling Diva is one of my favorite indies and she recently released The White Witch Collection. It was created in honor of Stevie Nicks who played a cameo on The Coven. While I'm not a fan of Stevie Nicks, I love The Coven. She made 12 gorgeous holos - here are 6 of them.

L to R 
Bella Donna
Stand Back
If Anyone Falls

Gypsy is my favorite. It's a beautiful silvery lilac holo. 

RIP Venus

Last Saturday, we took our precious Venus to get spayed and she passed away. She had a blood clot and her little heart couldn't take the surgery. It was devastating. I've lost pets before but it's never hurt this bad. 

I've always had a bad feeling about getting her fixed which is why it took me nearly 3 years to schedule the surgery. She's a indoor cat so there was no risk of her getting pregnant. But a few months ago, I learned that cats have a much higher risk to get cancer if left unspayed so I decided that it would be best for her to get fixed. I learned that the surgery is riskier if they are in heat so I ended up rescheduling it twice due to her being in heat.

She is a awesome cat as you can see in her picture. She's gorgeous but has a awesome personality too. I really miss her. We rescued her out of a horrible situation when she was just 5 weeks old. On a whim, I looked up some local cat shelters online and when I saw this sweet boy online, I fell in love.

His name is Jupiter. He has lived in shelters his whole life and he has some health problems. I think he just needs love. 

Ruby Mare Swatches & Review - Femme Fatale

I think I may have found my HG polish.

Femme Fatale's Ruby Hare is described as a berry pink holo w/ copper.

It looks pink, purple, red and copper to me depending on the light. It's stunning.

Smooth application - no issues at all! 2 coats + hk girl top coat.


I seem to go through a lot of nail polish remover...I wonder why :) 

Llarowe Mystery Grab Bag

I was finally able to snag a Llarowe Mystery Grab Bad after months of trying. I freakin' scored big time.

2 CBL OOPS and a Jindie!

CBL's (colors by llarowe) are one of my favorite indie brands. Her polishes are just amazing. The lighter more bluer swatch looks a lot like Smooth Criminal but Smooth Criminal is more blue.. The darker purple color is oops version of Woman From Tokyo.

I also received Jindie - She Blinded Me w/ Science. Sorry no swatches - it's going to my nail buddy.

I paid $20 - what a killer deal!
