SinfulColors ~ Stoned Crystal Shimmers Part 1

                                                                             *Purchased for me by my husband :)

         Hello! I hope everyone is having a good week so far! Today I bring you a new collection from SinfulColors. This is the first collection from SC that I loved so much I needed them all! Well, come to find out there are more than the 8 I have to show you. Now I am on a mission! For now, let's check out the ones I do have. First let me start with the formula. They are all the same except for 1 and I will note it when the color comes up. All of them are a dream to work with. They required no more than 2 smooth coats. My swatches are 2 coats with top coat. They all have the same abundant amount of iridescent flakies. I am pretty sure they are iridescent. They look different with each base color. This makes each of them unique and gorgeous! *I did have to edit the color on some of these pics. I will let you know which when we get there.

          Let's start with Desert Reign. This is a gorgeous mauvey, dusty purple color. Super gorgeous neutral shade.

Just Deserts is a soft peachy nude. Again, super flattering neutral polish.

Clay Me is a unique mix of coraly orange and burnt orange. This is a love it or hate it color. I love it :)

Last one for today is Thera-Pewter. A delicate dove grey polish with blue undertones.

I will have the second part of this posted soon! For now make sure you check your local Rite-Aid!! That is where I found mine and I also hear of lots of others having good luck at this store!! Links for SinfulColors below :)

March Adore Box

                                                                       *Provided for review

          Hey guys! It's been pretty quiet around here. My 5 year wedding anniversary is Thursday and we are going to NH for 4 days!! We have been saving and planning for this for months. This months box happen to fit what I needed like a glove! If you saw my video, you know what came in the March box. Now you get to see what I thought! If you didn't see my unboxing video, you can check that out HERE. Either way, now you get my full thoughts. Ready???

          First, the Kiss eyelashes. The name on these is "Natural Plump". They resemble "natural eyelashes with tapered ends". My eyelashes are long, thick, and dark naturally. Along with my OCD however, I sometimes pull at my eyelashes leaving thin spots. These will be perfect for our anniversary dinner. Natural looking but with fullness. My eyelashes are actually a little longer than these so I don't even think you will be able to tell when they are on. I haven't used them yet because I want to use them Thursday but, I will add some pics of my completed makeup look before dinner :)

Next we will check out this Hyper Go After Sports Wipe. Sooooooo...... I didn't work out or exercise before I tried this. I did scrub my bathroom though, and that made me sweat like crazy! When I was done I grabbed for this baby. It is big, 1 foot by 1 foot! I went straight for my face. It was really quick because of the size. It was also pretty thick and soft. Very cloth like. After I wiped my face, I wiped my neck, back, and chest. The sweaty spots... First thing I noticed was the scent. It says unscented but it definitely has a smell that's pretty strong. It's not floral or perfumey, just strongly clean. I also noticed that it was moist but not dripping. Nothing more annoying than something made for convenience making a mess! This wipe was great! Left my skin soft and not dried out at all. I will be getting some of these for my husband. He is a gym goer and would get great use from these!! Good stuff :)

          This product was highly needed for my collection! I am talking about the Coastal Scents 10 Blush Palette. I only had 1 lonely blush before this and it was very warm/golden toned. While it is gorgeous, I needed to branch out. This palette has a wide array of pinky/peach colors that will compliment any skin tone. The product is a little powdery so careful of fallout. I was so shocked at the pigment in these beauties. Last night I was playing with my make up and I used a peach shimmer shade and I was so happy with it!! I cannot wait to try more colors. Sooooo pretty!!

Look at those peachy cheeks <3

          Lastly is the Measurable Difference Posh Matte Liquid Lipstick. I got the color Nudist in my box. Definitely nice for my skin tone. I first tried this on its own. I did not realize that matte liquid lippies was something I would have to get used to. I like lip balm so this was totally new for me. After about a half an hour I added a shimmery lip gloss lol. Last night I used it after letting my lips soak up some moisture. I lined my lips with my liner from last months box then blended this in the middle. I love the way it looked!! And I left it matte. Now, I am obsessed! I will be searching everywhere I can on vacation to #buyallthelippies!!!!

Hot pink lip liner from February's Adore Box

So, have you subscribed to this box yet?? There isn't much reason not to. There is a plan for everyone's price point! And the value of each product you will get well exceeds the price you pay. Seriously, don't let another month go by without this fabulous box!! Stay tuned for a vacation makeup blog post! I will be using products from all the Adore Boxes I have gotten so far!! So exciting!! As always, links for this box and the social medias are below!!  See you soon :)

The Supernatural Box!

                                                                     *Provided for review/press sample

          Hello!! I am so excited to bring you this box :) Let me start by saying that I have never seen this show... *gasp*. I know. At the moment, I am watching Bates Motel. When I finish this show I will be starting Supernatural. I don't know if other bloggers do this but I just really like to know what exactly I am swatching! Ash has already gotten me into Game of Thrones, Marvel's Jessica Jones, and I believe there is more but ya lol. The Supernatural Box comes with a bunch of goodies.  3 polishes (Supernatural Lacquer, Level Up Lacquer, Dollish Polish) 3 magnets & 1 postcard (Cut Throat Cutie) and 1 mani bomb (Loquita Bath & Body aka Lolita Lacquer). Let's take a look at everything then we will get to the deets!

          The first thing I notice is how nicely it is all packaged up. That first picture is the sticker holding together the tissue paper. As soon as you open that, there is a postcard. Underneath that are the polishes, magnets, mani bomb, and business cards.


These bad boys went right on my helmers.

          I have not used the Women Of Letters mani bomb yet but when I do I will post a video up on IG. It is a honey, rose scent. Strong, but not over powering. How awesome does it look though?? I have used Mira's mani bombs before and they are really good.

          Now for the polish. First up is Hey Assbutt from LevelUP Lacquer. This is described as a creamy whitish khaki crelly with Blue Ultra Chrome flakies. As always the formula is flawless. I used 2 thin coats for my swatch plus top coat. Such an incredible polish.

It is very fitting that The Supernatural Box would feature Supernatural Lacquer. I have 1 other polish of Stefanies and it is amazing. This one is no different. Her formula is super smooth and very opaque!! Saving People, Hunting Things is described as an olive drab green with gold shimmer, gold and bronze flakes and linear holo pigment. This one stamps so wonderfully. I used 2 coats plus top coat for my swatch. You can totally get away with 1 coat if you're careful.

The final polish in this box is from Dollish Polish. This is a new to me brand. The polish is gorgeous! I Lost My Shoe is a metallic midnight blue with color-shift micro flakies. Pictures just don't do this one justice. Like the other polishes, this one has a flawless formula. Perfect in 2 coats with top coat.

Final Thoughts: GET THE BOX! The quality of the polish is worth every penny. The rest is just bonus! I haven't even watched the show yet and I love this collab <3 Seriously! There will only be 50 boxes available so mark your calendars. Here are the details. The box will be on preorder March 10th-12th. The cost is $33 + shipping. International shipping is available for this :) It will be available only on Stefanie's website. I will leave links to each makers shop below!!! Hope you have a fantastic week! Keep an eye on my IG for swatch videos :)
