Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer - Review

 Today I have a review of the Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation. It comes in 14 shades which I think is a pretty good range for being a new drugstore foundation. It is supposed to be able to be your foundation and concealer in one. I have the shade 04 Medium Beige that is for those that have light/medium skin with neutral undertones. Find out more about this below!

Hard Candy Brows Now! Fiberized Brow Gel & Brow Highlighter - Review

 You can tame and add color to brows quickly with the Hard Candy Brows Now! It comes with a brow fiber gel on one end and a highlighter on the other. I prefer to have my brows look natural, so I usually use a brow pencil and then a brow gel to keep them tamed. Now I can get both in one product and also a highlight for under the brows.

Beauty Box 5 Flower Power March 2016

 Today I have a look at what’s inside the Beauty Box 5 for March. I’m a little late but I still wanted to show the products that were featured. A few brands I have tried before, and some are new to me. Beauty Box 5 has been a great way to try products and get to know new brands that you might not have noticed before. Find out more below!

 Glamour Dolls Glitter Eyeliner (Full size) - This Glamour Dolls Glitter Eyeliner is in the shade Skylar, a pretty bright blue shade. This is part of their spring collection and it’s nice to give the eyes a fun glitter liner look.

 Pur-lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum (sample size) - This is a great eye serum that brightens up the under eye area and hydrates the skin. This sample may seem small but you only need a tiny amount of the product for it to work. I have a review of the full size here in case you want to read more about it.

 Personail Custom Floral Nail Polish Wraps (Full size) - These nail polish wraps are really fun and I love to wear these when I need a quick mani.

 Mai Couture Blush & Highlighter Papers (sample size) - These Blush and Highlighting Papers are easy to use and perfect for on the go. I have used these in the past and they give a good amount of color to the cheeks without being too shimmery.

 Colour Me Sky Blue Fragrance (sample size) - This has a nice, fresh scent that is floral but lightweight. It’s not too strong and is definitely great for spring.

 Beauty Box 5 Custom Temporary Tattoo (Full size) - This is a bonus item and it is really cute and fun to wear. 

Beauty Box 5 is $12 a month and includes free shipping. 
There is more info on how to sign up here.
