Well, my spring break is coming to an end. I go back to work on Wednesday. This vacation was actually quiet, as I got a cold and then the hubs got my cold, so now I am better and he is sick. Go figure. I am going to keep this post on the short side. I actually got a taste of carpal tunnel last night. No thanks. I am trying to take it a little easier with the typing but I already know how that is going to go.
I got some pretty good products in March and I am trying to get rid of some products. Sooooo… I am starting Sample This! Check out the new page on the PH blog and let me know your beauty needs.
I got some goodies the month of March and instead of doing straight out reviews, I will just give you a snippet for each. Here we go!
The Body Shop Absinthe Purifying Hand Wash and Purifying Hand Gel
I only bought hand soap and hand sanitizer when the Body Shop had their 50% off sale. It just smells so fresh and clean. I also do not like hand sanitizers that smell like fruit or alcohol. Absinthe is just a pleasant scent and it won’t make you nauseous.
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Pretty Social
Pretty Social was picked by Smashbox Facebook fans. I don’t think I voted for this color but I bought it anyway. It really is a great natural pink-nude and looks really classy. Yes, I said classy. Be Legendary Lipstick is smooth, creamy, and pigmented and Pretty Social does not disappoint in these departments.
The Balm’s Balms Away Eye Make-up Break Up
An eye make-up remover that looks like you can stick a wick in it, Balms Away is a soft way to take off eye make-up. I have been using waterproof mascara as of late and I took a dollop on my finger and gently rubbed it around each eye. Then I used cotton rounds to remove the residue. It got all of my mascara AND eye shadow AND eyeliner. I hate oily removers and though this was a bit greasy, it was not as greasy as I feared.
Total Beauty Collection Box
I did not order another subscription but there was a Living Social deal that my husband bought me. It came with hair oil, Neutrogena Lip Balm, mineral eye shadows, an NYX Shimmery Roller, and a $20 gift card to Sole Society. I wasn’t too crazy about the contents but I think hubs only spent about $10 and he knows how much I love products! Thanks, babes!
Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball Lipstick in Trance
For some reason I don’t have a picture of the color but Trance is a “subtle, shimmering raspberry.” The thing with Butterfly Ball lipsticks is they are sheer, shimmering, and iridescent. They also have a bit of blue, which is supposed to make your teeth look whiter. In reality, it feels lovely on the lips and is very shiny without being sticky. Trance gives a sheer wash of color.
Honestly, I am happy to see March go. I am ready for some spring and some sun!
Keep Calm & Primp On! XOXO
