November Ipsy bag review

My #GirlMeetsGlitter November Ipsy bag is amazing!! The bag is shiny and glitter-full and the products inside are perfect! Here's what I got:
-Laura Mercier finishing powder with a mini fan brush
-Calvin Klein lip gloss 
-Elizabeth Mott eyeliner 
-Be a bombshell eyeshadow/base
-Marc Anthony hairspray 

I got spoiled again by Ipsy with this amazing bag. I definitely lucked out with two higher end brands- Laura Mercier and Calvin Klein- and I feel like Ipsy got me as these would have been my top picks out of their choices this month. Can't wait for December's!

Kushyfoot Fall 2014 products

As the days are getting much colder, it's time to keep your toes warm and kushy! Wear stylish work socks and/or flats this season with Kushyfoot's New York Chic collection! Here are some of the products I got to try from them: 
-Microfiber Crew socks (above your ankles so you can still wear them under your favorite slacks)
-Fishnet Opaque Knee Highs (to keep your legs warmer underneath pants OR wear them with longer skirts) 

My favorite Kushyfoot product- their Flats To Go! I feel like I need at least a new pair every season as these get so worn! The black alligator print brings texture to a pair of boring black flats, and it's shiny so you can't miss them tucked in your bag. (it was a bit tricky taking them out of the plastic packaging, so I recommend placing these in a smaller cloth bag or extra cosmetics case.)

Get these today at kushyfoot.com!! They also have amazing tights to dress up your favorite dresses/skirts.

Monat Global Rejuveniqe™ Oil Intensive review

My hair is extremely thankful for iFabbo for introducing me to the Monat Global Rejuveniqe™ Oil Intensive hair product that I have been using the past couple of weeks.

This incredibly sleek packaged hair oil has hydrated and kept my hair looking shiny and feeling fabulous. My hair is already naturally "oily" so naturally I wouldn't be inclined to use a hair oil. However, there are hydrating benefits to using Rejuvenique, whose key ingredient is Abyssinian Oil, esp. during the winter when my ends get a bit drier than usual. My scalp also reaps the benefits, as it helps control sebum production (aka more oilies). 

Bonus? You can also use this on your cuticles, elbows or any other dry patches on your body!! This is definitely my go-to product for this winter and you can too! Check out www.monatglobal.com to learn more!

(Disclaimer: I received this product from this iFabbo to test, try and share my thoughts with my readers.)

October Birchbox Review

My October Birchbox came mid-October and I was thrilled with it! I decided to wait until I tried all the products before I wrote my review. My item selection was the Mally high shine liquid lipstick in Mally Melon. A gorgeous fruity color that delivers shine without stickiness. I already picked up an extra one from their Shop for a holiday gift... *insert excitement for the holidays*

I also got these 4 other samples (from left to right):
-Skin & Co. Sicilian Light serum- day brightening light- didn't see its effect really but it did feel nice and hydrating on my skin. 
- Lord & Berry sparkle black eyeliner- love the glitter! Not something I could wear everyday but definitely for the evening or a night out!
- Dr. Brandt pores no more Vacuum Cleaner- this is actually one of my favorite masks I've used to extract blackheads many years ago. Glad I got to try it again!
- Amika perk up dry shampoo- still using my other sample from a previous box but I tried this and it actually worked nicely to get rid of my oilies. 

Can't wait for my November box coming soon!!!

Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review

Candles + Spa = an amazing experience.. but if you can't go to a spa, you may as well create an environment that smells like one! Old Facory Candle Gift Sets has so many different scent variations but I decided to pick their Spa Day collection- 3 candles of each Cucumber, Lemongrass and Green Tea. For me, the cucumber and lemograss scents smelled very true to their scent. Green tea was hard to make of since I'm so used to drinking the tea and its scent didn't seem the same. Nevertheless, these three candles help create the aroma of a spa.

I also liked that these are natural, soy wax candles so nothing seemed "artificial." They're also 2 oz. each so they're super cute and make great stocking stuffers for the upcoming holidays! The two holiday themed ones- Happy Holidays and Winter Wonderland sound amazing.. who doesn't want to smell gingerbread and/or hot cocoa in their living rooms all winter? :)
