whole blends

Good Afternoon All!
I am beyond happy with this
months Topbox! It just seems
to be getting better each month.
I sure am glad I didn’t cancel this subscription.
I even got a free sample this month from
Garnier Whole Blends! Bonus!

Nude By Nature – Perfecting Primer
Last month they were giving away samples
by Nude by Nature as a promo and I really
wanted the primer but it was sold out so you
can imagine how excited I am that It is in my Topbox!
I have tried a variety of sample primers so its always fun to
get another to see what is the best fit for your skin!

Glow for a cause – Lip Love natural lip balm
I don’t believe I have heard of this product before
but who doesn’t love a good lip balm! This particular
balm is known for its restorative powers and has
Vitamin E which helps protects lips from damaging
effects of the environment.

Voesh – Pedi in a Box
Someone over at Topbox must have been
reading my mind or secretly know me because
my feet are always in need of some TLC.
This product is known as the cleanest and most
hygienic Spa Pedicure solution. It is Enriched with
key ingredients to give your feet the nutrition it needs.
Each product is individually packed with the right amount
for a single pedicure. Spa night is coming!

Skin&Co Roma – Truffle Therapy Serum
I have never heard of this product so I went to their site
for a full review. Truffle Therapy Serum is infused with
potent skin-renewing ingredients. Carefully handcrafted in
Umbria, Italy, it restores skin with undetected radiance.
Fine lines start to fade, roughness is surrendered and silky
smoothness is immediately revealed and skin looks firmer and brighter,
creating a healthy, youthful complexion with improved smoothness and tone.
Looking forward to testing this out!

So all in all, this was a great month for both
subscriptions. I love learning about new products
and testing things out to see what I like and honestly,
I never shop for makeup anymore because as soon as
one thing runs out, another comes up!

Xoxo, Dani Girl

Ipsy Glam Bag ~ April Edition ~

Good Afternoon All!
This months theme is “Social Butterfly.”
I really like the design of this bag. It
gives off a fresh and highly desired spring feel.

CIATÉ LONDON – Starstruck Double-Ended Stamp Liquid Liner
Normally if I see an eyeliner in my Glam Bag,
I am kind of disappointed. I don’t normally use
liquid eyeliners but after seeing how this allows
for easy application, I am considering trying the
“cat eye” look. I also LOVE the star stamp on the
other side. It actually looks like a tattoo when applied
and is very Kat Von D ‘vibes.’

WANDER BEAUTY – Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks
Now these eye masks are the epiphany of GLAM!
The gold foil helps retain heat, so the serum doesn’t
evaporate before fully soaking into your skin. It is made
with soothing lavender and aloe which are great for
decreasing puffy and tired looking under eyes.
Bonus! You can pop them on before using dark
eye shadows to catch fallout, and treat your under eyes
at the same time. I am really looking forward
to using these guys and bonus, it comes with 2 sets!

REALHER – Moisturizing Lipstick in “Mauve”
Yassss! My best friend got me this
amazing lip stick from ELF for my birthday
last august and it is almost completely empty.
It is pretty much the same shade as this so I could
not be happier to see this arriving just in time for
my every day work look.

RUBY – Eyeshadow Blending Brush
Although I do have a heap of brushes,
surprisingly, I keep getting sent ones
I don’t have so I have really stocked up now
with quite a variety! I have been experimenting
a lot lately with glitter lines and bright colours
so this brush will be great for getting into those
hard to reach spots.

HEMPZ – Herbal Lip Balm
Last but definitely not least, this lip balm!
First off, I had a hand lotion previously from
HEMPZ and it did wonders for my cracked and
dried hands. I am really looking forward to this lip balm
as its great to wear on its own to hydrate and
protect lips from cracking and it can also be
used to enhance a lip colour!

That’s it for now! Stay tuned for Topbox next!

Ipsy Glam Bag ~ March Edition ~

ipsy march bag

Good Afternoon All!
I finally received my Ipsy!
I had redeemed points for an extra
product so it took longer than normal to arrive.
So, let’s dig in! This month’s theme is ” Create. ”
As you can see below, the bag is made to be coloured
and you get a pink and blue marker in your pack to personalize
it any way you want. Love this idea!

bag.jpg

NIP+FAB – Glycolic Scrub Fix – Retail Price: $8.76
This 3-in-1 exfoliant is packed with 3% glycolic acid and salicylic acids
to refine, brighten + renew. Glycolic Fix Facial scrub works deep into
pores to cleanse, polish + reduce blemishes from the first use. I am
digging what this product is laying down so long as it doesn’t irritate
my ridiculously sensitive skin.
*Remember folks, only exfoliate once a week MAX!*

EYEKO – Lash Alert Mascara in Carbon Black – Retail Price: $28.40 @ Full Size
This mascara is actually infused with caffeine. Why hasn’t anyone thought
of this before?! I love the shape of the brush as its curvy which helps to reach
every lash! Did I mention it’s cruelty free? This product is also filled with
biotin which helps promote healthy and fuller lashes!

mascara.jpg

Winky Lux – Powdered Lights In “Charm” Retail Price: $18.00 @ Full Size
As I’m sure some of you have noticed, Ipsy has been sending Highlighters almost
every month for awhile now. Normally I am annoyed but this one is actually quite
different! It refracts light and creates a luminescent glow. The velvety texture and long wear technology creates a delicate radiance that lasts all day. I wore it today for the first
time and really love how it looks! It’s subtle which is nice because I am so pale and so it
doesn’t look like I’ve overdone it.

HERMINERALS – Blending Sponge – Retail Price: $12.00
I know everyone loves Beauty Blenders! I find because my skin
is so dry and textured that using a sponge beauty blender
(even after dampening it) makes noticeable streaks and lines on my face.
It doesn’t let the makeup settled nicely into my skin.
I have been using a silicone flat Beauty Blender for a few months now
and this thing is like magic! It doesn’t absorb the makeup like the
sponge beauty blenders and it allows for a smooth application. I
do however, normally follow up with a sponge triangle just to set it
after it has been applied and even then, everything is smoothed out
without leaving lines. That being said, I most likely won’t be using this.

Ahava – Purifying Mud Mask – Retail Price: $42.00 @ Full Size
As previously mentioned I have a HEAP of masks! I don’t however
have a mud mask! It’s made with mud from the Dead Sea and nourishing kaolin and chamomile that help even out your skin tone, smooth your skin’s texture, and boost hydration. Everything I could possibly need is in this mask and as an added
bonus, it can even be used as an overnight spot treatment!

Last but not least, the item I redeemed with my points!

Purpletale – 5 Steps to Lovely Skin Complete Facial Solution – Retail Price: $4.00
It’s always nice to make time to pamper yourself. When I saw this item
up for grabs, I figured hey! why not! I plan to use it prior to a night out
or special event as I really want to make the most of it. This portable five-step
facial kit comes with (1) foam cleanser, (2) ampoule, (3)bio cellulose sheet mask,
(4) facial cream, and (5) neck cream in one neat packet so that you can enjoy facials whenever and wherever you want!

That’s it, that’s all!
Stay tuned for April Subscriptions next month!

TOPOX ~ March Edition ~

Good Afternoon All!
Topbox arrived first this month!
Topbox normally sends you an e-mail
at the end of the month asking you to choose
from a variety of different boxes or to stick with
the original Topbox. Considering I haven’t been receiving
e-mails since the start of the new year, I have been
getting the original Topbox which is always a surprise.
I must say I have been really happy with them.
I guess sometimes its nice to let go of control and
let yourself have a little mystery!

Delectable Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream “Sweet Mint & Cream”
I have received a variety of different moisturizing products from this
company and must say I am pretty happy with their ability to heal
cracked and dry hands with ease. They come in a variety of different
scents as well which are not extremely over powering. I think this
scent in particular will make me quite hungry for Mint Chocolate Chip
Ice Cream!

Laniege Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask
Mask Queen over here! I had previously received a
yogurt based moisturizer and loved it! I can imagine
it will be no different with this mask. It smells amazing
and probiotics do wonders for the skin!

Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara
Having a few monthly subscriptions on the go
allows you to test a multitude of products. I often
receive mascara which is great because they are
all made differently. This is the first time receiving this
one in particular. I have heard great things and I really
like the design and wand applicator as it allows for seperation
of the lashes with little to no clumping.

Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip
SO happy to have this product! I absolutely adore
Smashbox products and this lippie is no different.
The best part about this shade is that it is not too
bold so it can be worn everyday! It has a lightweight
texture and is rich and saturated with colour creating
a high impact shine.

Stay tuned next week when I unveil my Ipsy Glam Bag
and the product I redeemed with my points!

Topbox ~ February Edition ~

Good Afternoon All!

I didn’t get the option to choose a
specialty box or stick with the regular
Topbox so they sent me the regular.
I have been in anticipation as I do not
know ahead of time what I am getting with
this specific monthly subscription.
Let’s get right down to it!

topbox.jpg

Wella Professionals – Oil Reflections Shampoo & Conditioner
Super happy to have received salon quality shampoo and conditioner.
I just got my hair done last week and I really want to keep the colour
lasting so investing in good products for washing and styling make a
big difference. These items are light moisturizing and made with
White Tea Extract!

s&c.jpg

Fruits & Passion – Ocean Flower Hand Cream
Normally I would be annoyed to receive hand cream
twice in a row but considering its winter and my hands
hate the cold, I am absolutely greatful. This hand cream is
enriched with a blend of coconut oil, mineral water from Canada
and a mineral complex with softening and moisturizing properties.
I like that it isn’t greasy and has a light smell that is not even the
least bit overpowering.

hand cream.jpg

GLAMGLOW- Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in “Nude Glow”
At first I thought this might be a new GLAMGLOW Mask that I have
yet to try but upon a second glance, I realized it was a moisturizer sample!
I was hoping to receive a moisturizer this month in one of my makeup
subscriptions as I like to experiment and see what works best for my
dry skin. This product is a hydrating, super-charged cream with
iridescent illuminating pearl particles to blur, reflect, and enhance
your complexion for an instant luminous finish. If only their products
weren’t so expensive at full size!

glamglow.jpg

Smashbox – Be Legendary Liquid Metal Mini in “Crimson Chrome”
I don’t wear red lipstick often as I find it quite dramatic and since
I am super pale, I feel it washes me out sometimes. I normally
lean towards Fuscia and Coral in regards to bold lip colours.
I do love Smashbox so I am going to give this lippie a go!

smashbox.jpg

That’s it for this month!
Stay tuned for March subscriptions!
Hoping for some nice spring products/colours.
