June Total Beauty Collection July 14, 2012

Today I bring you my first of the June boxes in the format I mentioned a few days ago – I still can’t believe I got an entire month behind! Anyway, this is the second of the Total Beauty Collections.Total Beauty Collection is different than the other sample subscriptions in that it is not really a subscription. You get notified that a new “Collection” is out the email tells you what brands are included. You then can click on the link and see more specific information on the products included. Then you can purchase it. If you don’t like it you don’t have to buy it. You will not be automatically billed for it. The down side is it can sell out and you don’t have any way of ensuring you get it.

So what was included in the second Collection?

Pixi Wakeup Kit Review and Swatches July 30, 2011

I was ordering a double barrel curling iron from Target and was about $30 away from free shipping and shipping was going to cost $20 so I figured I’d just buy something else for myself.  I had been wanting to try Pixi, the “upscale” brand at Target and they had a Weekday Wakeup Kit that I’d wanted. Well at Target they showed the photo of the “Weekday Wakeup Kit” and so I ordered it.  Evidently I should have read better because the description did not match the photo, and instead I got the “Wakeup Kit” which is quite different – thanks a-lot Target.

Anyway, this Wakeup Kit by Pixi contains 2 Eyeshadow Primers, 18 Eyeshadows, 4 colors of blush, and 8 lipglosses. All of the eyeshadows are shimmery and one of the blushes is shimmery.
