FabFitFun Spring Box Review

For the past week I’ve been commuting an hour to take an 8 am to to 5 pm life, health, and accident insurance class. Sounds fun, right? This was also Squish’s first week at daycare. So, to say it’s been a long week is a slight understatement.

Thankfully my little monster loves his new teachers, and I passed my insurance test!
So after a long exhausting week, you know what was an awesome surprise? (And by surprise I mean I’ve been waiting on this box to arrive since I signed up back in February and have been obsessively checking the tracking number)

The FabFitFun Spring Box!

Get yours here!!

I was so excited to see what awesome surprises would be in this seasons box, and I was not disappointed!

My favorite is the the adorable Gypsy05 Roundie! I absolutely can’t wait to use it this summer.

So here’s everything that was in the Spring Box.

Not only is this box FULL of amazing goodies, but it was only $50! That’s right, FIFTY DOLLARS. Y’all, this is over THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS WORTH OF GOODIES!

I freaking LOVE almost everything in this box. The earrings are insanely adorable, the roundie couldn’t be cuter, and this “resting beach face” cosmetics bag is just plain perfect.

The only thing I’m not crazy about is the lip kit, and that’s really only the shade. I have darker lips, and the lighter color just doesn’t suit me.

I can’t wait to try the leave in conditioner, exfoliator, and sheet masks. I’ll be posting reviews on everything as I use it.

So if you want to order your FabFitFun Summer box, click here and get 10% off!

Did you get the Spring Box? What’s your favorite thing from this seasons box? Leave a comment and let me know! ☺️

pūr~lisse Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask Review

I’ve been meaning to post this review for a few weeks, but with everything going on it’s just slipped my mind! 

I got this product in January ipsy bag. If you haven’t signed up for ipsy by now, you’re missing out! It’s $10 a month for an adorable makeup bag full of awesome samples. I’ve gotten mascaras, eyeliners, masks, moisturizers, makeup brushes, and more! You seriously can’t beat it.

This has been one of my favorite products by far. I’ve almost used it all up, and I’ll be ordering more when I do!! 

This 10 minute exfoliating facial is full of good for your skin ingredients like: 

  • Blue Lotus Seed – powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory 
  • White Clay – tightens skin & purifies pores
  • Bamboo – improves skin texture
  • Ginger – detoxifies
  • Mushroom extract -brightens skin tone
  • White Tea – soothes skin
  • Rice Bran Water – improves skin texture

I have really sensitive skin so I have to be careful with really strong masks and cleansers. This mask is wonderfully gentle but effective! 

Apply the mask in a nice thick layer on clean dry skin avoiding your eyes and mouth (duh). Let it dry completely! This normally 
takes about 10 minutes depending on how thick you apply the mask. 

Look at all the oil and nasty stuff it’s drawing out!

Use a wash cloth and warm water to gently wipe off mask using small circular motions. Rinse and dry your face and follow with pūr~lisse moisturizer. 

When I first put the mask on, it does have a slightly tingly warm feeling. Not really a burning sensation and not uncomfortable, but enough to notice. This goes away after a minutes or two. 

What is your favorite mask or at home facial? Have you ever used pūr~lisse? Let me know in the comments below! I would love to hear from you! 💜💜💜

Colossal Big Shot Mascara Review

A few weeks ago I received the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara complimentary from Influenster to do some testing. 

I also received the Master Precise Curvy eyeliner as a bonus.

I normally use Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, but this mascara makes some pretty big claims so I figured I’d give it a shot. I mean, thats kind of the whole point of me getting it. 

Anyways, the claim is “fully loaded volume in one coat”. I was pretty skeptic, since even with the BTS I do two or three coats. 

So to test it out, I did Too Faced on the right, and Maybelline on the left.  

With the first coat, there’s really not much difference between the two. Unfortunately, Maybelline failed to live up to the “one coat” claim. 

So I tried two coats. 

This is where the Too Faced masacara starts to shine. Lengthens, volumizes, and doesn’t clump! 

Unfortunately, the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara started getting clumpy. I honestly think it’s more because of the weird wand then the actual mascara itself. 

At the end of the day, I would give the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara a 6. 

Length – 7

Volume – 8

Clumping – 4
