Nail of the Day: Chanel Malice

It's been forever since I have done a NOTD post. Why not come back big with Chanel? This has been a very talked about polish for Fall/Winter so I decided to pick it up. While it is pretty I just don't know if I get the hype just yet. I may need to wear it again to see but I'm not sure that this would make any favorites list just yet. This polish is $26 and you get .40 fl oz. So not cheap by any means but Chanel does make some very unique colors so sometimes its worth it.

What's in My January Birchbox

January's Birchbox theme is new year, new you. The box is focused on making 2013 the best year ever. Being that this is a new year I was really excited to see what I was going to get in my box. Birchbox is currently the only beauty box subscription service that I still receive so I am always super excited when I get my box. This is what I got in my January Birchbox.

Maybelline Color Whisper Photos, Swatches, & Review

First there were the Revlon Lip Butter, then Loreal Color Riche, now Maybelline Color Whisper. How could Maybelline stay out the game? Well I'm glad they joined in because they are probably my favorite drugstore brand so I always have high hopes for their products. I will let you know my thoughts on them and how they compare to Loreal and Revlon.

The packaging I love! They are the slimmest and sleekest lipstick that I own which I can highly appreciate. I hate unnecessary packing and we all know when we have a small clutch with limited space how this comes in handy. The lids correspond to the color in the tube (for some but not all). The cap is easy to take off and put back on and unlike the Loreal ones you don't have to lock it into any groove.

What's in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox

Influenster is a program where you can receive free products or boxes based on your interests and social media influence. The boxes include full sized products and if you receive a box you review the products. It's a fairly simple concept but also a great way to try out new things for free. This box is the Holiday VoxBox and is my second box that I have received from Influenster

Project X Pan January 2013 Update

I started doing Project X Pan in October and I am still trying to use up some of the products in January. I used up probably more than half of the below products but still have quite a few to go. While I didn't do a no buy on this project pan I still enjoy focusing on certain products as I think it really helps me use things up. This post will focus on what I have used up since my last post in October.

Top 12 of 2012

I'm excited to share with you all my top 12 beauty products of 2012. I debated about doing a longer post breaking maybe more of my favorites into categories. If you would like a lengthier post with more favorites please let me know and I can certainly do that. But for now these are the top 12 things that I loved this past year. Most of these products I use on a daily basis so that's how I know that something is truly a favorite. Most of these products can be found either at your local drugstore, Ulta, or Sephora.

December Empties

My empties for the month of December are a lot less than I usually have and probably will be moving forward since I have been focusing more on finishing up full sized products since I don't have as many samples to go through. I will highlight for you in the post the products that I would repurchase.Since I didn't have a ton of empties this month I did not break it into categories. I hope everyone is having a great start to 2013!

January Giveaway: Limited Edition MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose

January 2013 Giveaway

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose
Sorry for being MIA during the holiday season but I'm excited to share some fun new things with you for the month of January. For the month of January I have picked up a limited edition item which is already sold out on the MAC website. I am giving away the limited edition MAC mineralize skinfinish in Stereo Rose. This is a cult favorite from MAC and a color that I think would work well on a lot of skintones. The value is $29 and you get 10 grams of product. 

I am giving away 1 MAC mineralize skinfinish in Stereo Rose which is a $29 value. 
 This is what MAC has to say about the skinfinish, "A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, or an overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face." This is a beautiful color that I think everyone can really enjoy.
