Wal-Mart Beauty Winter 2014

The Walmart beauty box is exposing consumers to easily accessible and affordable brands. The Winter Box is the second quarterly box from Walmart and it promised to be packed with products to get us through the coldest season of the year. There was a glitch with the Walmart Beauty Box site and at one time it looked like I had ordered 7 boxes. Thankfully my card was only charged for one $5.00 box and I only received one box. It was actually delivered today, one has to love Sunday mail delivery during the holidays.

Walmart’s box variations are sent out according to your age. I am 32 so I receive boxes that are geared towards ladies in their 30’s. So if you are older or younger than me, you may not receive the same box that I got. All of the boxes are filled with decent sized samples and foil packets. For $5.00 plus free shipping the Walmart Quarterly Beauty Box is truly a great deal.

Do you want a $5.00 quarterly Walmart Beauty Box of your very own. Oh! Come on now, get over yourself and hop on over to https://beautybox.walmart.com. Your box is waiting for you and trust me you will not regret that you signed up! The box ships every three months and the next box will be winter.

{BirchBox} Decked Out – December 2014

Decked Out - December 2014

Decked Out – December 2014

“With apologies to Scrooge, we find it hard to feel anything but buoyant this time of year. There’s the anticipation of a pile of brightly wrapped presents, the glow of a family gathering, and of course the fizz of excitement before a big soiree.”

I love this time of year. Everyone is a little kinder to one another and the element of surprise is constantly hanging in the air. I have a pile of carefully wrapped presents under and around my tree, I cannot wait for my family to open them. On Saturday the boyfriend and I had our very first early Christmas, there is nothing like new love to make the holidays bright. He definitely put the sparkle in my holiday with a gorgeous necklace and matching earrings. I am one lucky girl.

My Birchbox was definitely a surprise this month as I did not get my sample choice item. My choice was not recorded on their website, however a few calls and a bunch of emails later the Manna Kadar Lip Stain was sent out separately from my box. I tried it this morning and I love the color and the texture, the stain is more gloss like than stain. I loved it and will be ordering the full-sized version soon. Now on to my actual December box.

“Hey! What did you get in your BirchBox this month?!”

Dec 2014

Decked Out – December 2014

amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo: Weightless spray in the brands signature obilphica scent that refreshes hair sans residue.
—————————> I have never been a fan of dry shampoos until now, this this smells amazing and it did not leave any white residue in my curls. I will definitely be buying the full-sized version.

Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm: tinted cream brightens, blocks UV rays, and calms blemish prone skin.
————————> I really liked this product, the BB cream covers like a foundation and it was very light and not greasy. This is going to be my new weekend beauty routine go to.

Mirenesse – Mattfinity Lip Rouge in Sydney: velvety color with a modern matte finish. No need for lip liner, this stain stays put.
————————> OMG this color is really really bright and it is going into the gift pile. If I wore this people would think I was a clown, plus it seems kind of gunky in its container.

SeaRX Anti-wrinkle Facial Lift Treatment Serum: with dead sea minerals and potent hydrators, this formula fights wrinkles and fine lines.

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream: all over hydrator heals and softens everything from rough heels to chapped lips.

BONUS! GET YOUR BONUS! BONUS!: Miss Jessie’s® Original Jelly Soft Curls – Wheat proteins condition hair for soft, shiny curls, and the lightweight formula provides lasting definition without leaving any residue or stickiness behind.

My Decked Out box was pretty great. Some of the samples were super tiny thou, but hey its BirchBox so that can be expected from time to time. I hope all of you enjoy your December Box and have a very merry holiday!

Thinking of You – December 2014

Our happy thoughts are filled with YOU this month. Thank you for a 2014 full of beauty, wisdom, and inspiration. You’ve given us so many reasons to smile and look forward to another amazing year ahead.

Wow its hard to believe that this is the last Glam Bag of 2014. It also means I have received an entire year of beauty filled Ipsy bags. Through out the year I have been able to try a lot of really great products and sample a few duds too. Thanks to Ipsy I now have a ton of must have go to products that I cannot live without.

“Hey Girl! Like what did you get in your Glam Bag?” Like whoa, lets unzip it and find out!

Thinking of You – December 2014

Coolway’s Boost Repair™: Treatment provides a powerful boost of ionized amino acids and botanical extracts to eliminate damage caused by harsh chemicals and high heat tools.

Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream: provides rich hydration to the delicate skin around the eyes. This powerful product will leave your eyes looking brighter, smoother and younger looking.

NYX Cosmetics – Butter Lip Balm in Toasted Marshmallow: This Buttery Lip Balm is addictively soft and scrumptious and perfect for adding a subtle hint of color for a naturally flirtatious pout.

Pixi by Petra Fairy Dust: Elevate & transform your eye in a few fairy seconds with this glimmering dust. Loose pigments add a lit-up high shine finish to lids, reminding you what wishes are truly made of!

tarte deluxe lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara: Like a pushup bra for your lashes, tarte’s best-selling mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes and conditions to deliver a 330% increase in lash volume instantly. The high-performance formula is also infused with naturally-derived olive esters to help nourish and protect lashes.

This month every subscriber was guaranteed a NYX Butter Lip Balm and tarte mascara sample in their glam bag. This was a very nice touch from Ipsy and it left the other three samples up to fate. I really liked December’s bag and I cannot wait to see what the next twelve bags will hold.

Do you want an Ipsy Glam Bag of your very own? Well then, for $10 a month (shipping is free) you will receive a Glam Bag filled with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using.
