Happy Halloween October 31, 2012

Filed under: Makup — slagoon @ 5:55 pm

   

I’ve got my fun Halloween look for today and I thought I’d share! I’ve got Stila Mimosa on as the bright orange on my lids with Kitten on my brow bone.  I used an Urban Decay cream shadow in a green (but the label has worn off) for my top lid liner.  My lips are CoverGirl temptation 285.  I think it turned out very festive.

Oh and I have a devil dog!

BzzAgent COVERGIRL & Olay Foundation and Pressed Powder Review September 18, 2012

Today I bring you the COVERGIRL & Olay foundation and Pressed powder that I received from Bzzagent.com. I was quite excited to try it since I’d used Olay moisturizers a lot in the past.  I’d tried covergirl on and off in the past with varying levels of dislike but I was hopeful that this venture would be different.  This formula suggests that it will help hydrate your skin to improve your overall tone in as little as a week. (Sounds good to me)!!  Did it hold up?

MyGlam has been pretty fun lately with a good mixture of types of products.  They have also been mixing their bags up a bit. This month was a party-ready gold glitter bag. I was really nervous about all the glitter but none of it came off. I can totally see myself using it for a party where I fear that my stuff might get spilled on.

So what came inside this shiny shiny bag of goodness?

Do you ever see movies that have been super hyped by your friends or other people you know and then you see it and think, “meh, it was okay, but definitely not that amazing.”  I often wonder if I would be as excited as my friends were if I had seen it before the hype.  Today I bring you a product, that much like the movies I just mentioned, has been quite hyped.  Did it live up to that hype?

It is nearly August (and my August Glossy Box arrived today) so I figured I should probably share my June Glossy Box items. June’s theme was Beauty Around the World.  Each of the items are from different places on the globe. 

So what wonderful items were included from each of the 5 countries?

Sindulge – May or June or? July 30, 2012

Here is another company which has dropped off the face of the earth, and with good reason I suppose.  If you are a company looking to get into the sample subscription business please learn from these other companies shortcomings and failures. Sindulge was plagued with issues since its debut. The idea was to have a consultation with a personal beauty curator to help define what sorts of products you should be sent.  Both times that I had a consultation the “Video chat” was not working…but I didn’t receive any notification from the consultant that I needed to switch over to the text platform – and it seemed the consultants were distracted, because the text conversations were very slow. The samples were not sent promptly, though they did resemble the conversation, and customer service was lacking. All in all, had I not started with a 1 year subscription, I would have been droping them after this anyway.

What all was included for May or June or whatever month it was supposed to be for?

June – The Look Bag July 22, 2012

Today I bring you what is probably the last Look Bag review that I will write.  On July 18th I received the following note:

As many of you know, we have been experiencing some troubles in the recent months with our beauty sample program The Look Bag. We have thought very long and hard about this decision and it very much saddens us to say that we have decided to discontinue The Look Bag while we refocus on The Look Store.com to bring you the very best in celebrity beauty picks.

Those that have purchased gift subscriptions for 3, 6 and 12 months, or yearly subscriptions will be refunded for remaining months. Those who have not yet been charged for July, will not be receiving a July bag. 

My guess is that I will NOT be getting a July bag as we are 9 days from August. Bummer! That’s okay – I really did feel like we were being sent mostly older items that were no longer in style.

They sent the June bag out at the end of June instead of the beginning explaining that they were trying to package their products more carefully after complaints of subscribers.

So what was included in this “well packaged” but still “last” bag?
