November's Birchbox And Ipsy Bag

Here they are!


Okay so first, let's talk about the Birchbox.

If you'd rather just watch my video on it, which, I talk about the products more, than go watch here:



Otherwise, carrying on, here's a closer look at my Birchbox:


Starting from left to right I received Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper, which is a treatment that helps to control frizzy, curly, hair, the retail of a full size is $10.

Chuao Chocolatier Mini Chocolate Bar, a 7 pack retails for $7.95. They tasted fine, but were nothing I would go out of my way to buy again.

Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in Pink Shimmer, a full size retails for $20. This didn't really show up at all when smoothed out onto my skin, I do not recommend this product at all!!

Jouer Fragrance Cornucopia, a full size is $42. It is an extremely floral scent, but once you rub the oil onto your skin, you basically can't smell it at all.

And last, ModelCo Fibre Lashxtend Lengthening Mascara, a full size is $24. I have yet to try this, but it looks okay. I personally hate fibers on my eyelashes and don't notice a difference when I have them on.

The products are okay, definitely nothing I care about and if someone said, would you rather have this box, or $10? I would take the money and spend it better.

I will continue buying Birchbox...for now.

Then onto my Ipsy bag!


First thing first, it comes in a chocolate satin bag with a gold zipper.

I ended up throwing the bag away, I can only find so many uses for these bags!

Anyways, the products starting from left to right:

Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel

Nailtini in Millionaire, which has small gold glitters, and green and gold bar glitter.

theBalm Meet Matte Eyeshadow in Matt Batali, which is a nice matte brown

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie in Dare Devil, which as you can see in the picture, is a very dark mauve with a little bit of glitter. It looks kind of scary for my complexion.

Lastly, Starlet Cosmetics Intense Eyeliner in Chocolate, which is just a reddish brown eyeliner


So that excited me a little more than the Birchbox, I will definitely be trying out these products and see if there's anything worth talking about in the future! 

That's all I have for you guys now, let me know what you got!!

LUSH HAUL!

It's my first ever, LUSH HAUL!!

WOOO, start the tub baby because it's about to get steaaaamy.


I've only tried a handful of products for LUSH but when people do hauls from there, I cannot stop watching.

They make some of the coolest looking products!

So we're getting into the cooler months here in chilly Wisconsin, and my skin is absolutely showing it. I want to get some stuff to bring my skin back to life, and what better way to start that than with some bath bombs!

To see what all the products look like, check out my video here!:


So like I said, I've tried very few LUSH products before, so I apologize that during the haul above, I didn't really know much about the products I chose. But below I'll list everything I got in order of mention in the video:

Sympathy For The Skin http://www.lushusa.com/Sympathy-for-the-Skin/00029,en_US,pd.html?start=1&q=sympathy%20for%20the%20skin


I will definitely be doing a followup post about what I thought about the products I picked, how they worked in the tub, if they did anything for my skin and so on. 

I can tell you right now, I already HATED one thing, and LOVE another.

So stay tuned in for that! Maybe you should start following my blog so you don't miss that ;)

Muahaha, anyways, have a lovely night gals!

Nail Color Of The Week!

Today's polish of choice is Deborah Lippmann's Across The Universe!

This is truly a one of a kind nail polish, that I was lucky enough to get for free with a purchase. Otherwise, all Deborah Lippmann polishes retail for $18.

NOT CHEAP!

So if I grab one, it's usually because it's a very unique color.

Anyways, this color is a jelly dark blue based polish with green and blue glitter in it.
It only needs a couple of coats but if you wanted to make it look better you could probably just layer this over a blue or green nail polish.




I really think this color is a nice addition to anyone's collection and again, it is extremely unique!

Nail Color Of The Week!

Today I am rocking Deborah Lippmann's Ray Of Light Polish!



I looove this color!
It probably would look a little better with a pink polish underneath but I really like it.
It has a jelly formula and it took about two coats to get it to look like it does above.

Now, I know Deborah Lippmann nail polishes aren't cheap but when I buy her polishes, I buy colors that I've never seen before, and this one is definitely one of those! 

What are your favorite Deborah Lippmann polishes?? I'm loving them lately!!

xoxo, Meggie Lew!

My OOTN Girlfran!

Another outfit of the night for you guys!




My top is from TJ Maxx
The black pants are from Alloy.com
Shoesies from Target
Ring from Forever 21!

It's a pretty casual, simple outfit, I would have accessorized more but of course, I was running late and couldn't find what I was looking for! GRRR!

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy!

xoxo, Megs
