Sample Society July 2012 Sample Box - Review

Last day of July! This month flew by and just had to squeeze this review in before the month officially ends. It took me a while to get this review done, and I received this only a couple of weeks ago, so excuse my lateness. This is a sample box subscription service from beautybar,com with Allure magazine that comes with 5 beauty samples. This is the first box from them that I have received. Did I enjoy it? Let's see.

Glossybox US June 2012 - Overall Review

I got a chance to receive the June Glossybox to review, and I have to say that these have been pleasing so far. I know it's already July, but they send out there boxes at the end of each month, so that's why I received it this month. There are 6 samples in here, and they vary for each person. I will give a brief review of each product, but not in depth since I haven't used the products that long.  Let's see the goodies!

NOTD - Orly Preamp

NOTD is something I have been wearing a lot lately. Orly Preamp is a shimmery pink that I absolutely love. I usually hate pink nail polish and stay far away from it. This color is different though. It has amazing shimmer that kind of changes the pink. Looks way better in person.

This polish came out with the new Electronica collection from Orly. It was honestly the only one I wanted, I didn't care for the others. 

Let me know what you think! :)

N.Y.C. Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer - Review

I saw this new N.Y.C. face primer and decided to try it out. I have many face primers but this one was so inexpensive, I thought maybe it would work just as good or better than the expensive primers. Every time I try N.Y.C. products, I always have a good experience, so I was hoping it would be the same for this one. If you want to see if I loved it or hated it, read more!

I decided on naming it Morocco, and there are 11 other shadows that are included. Take a look at my shadow below!

Rimmel Scandaleyes London Waterproof Gel Eyeliner - Review

I saw this new Rimmel waterproof gel eyeliner at CVS, and decided I would give it a try. I never usually use gel eyeliner, only liquid, so this was fairly new for me to get used to applying with a brush. I have actually wanted to switch to gel liner for a while, since the liquid liner from MAC was not cutting it. Here is my review and a swatch.
