High Five for Friday!!1

Woah, I haven't done a High Five for Friday post in a while, so lets do one shall we?  It was actually a pretty decent week...despite the dentist appointment on Thursday.  CAN YOU BELIEVE IT'S ALREADY THE END OF OCTOBER!!!!  As always I am linking up with Lauren at Lauren Elizabeth for this weeks High Five for Friday!!

  1. My mini makeup haul. I know that happened last week/weekend, but it was still a top moment in my week.

  2. I had ordered the Bourjois Health Mix Foundation a little while ago, and finally gave it a try this week! I'll review it more later.

  3. Birchbox of course needs to be included on this list, simply for the fact I got a Beauty Blender.

  4. I joined Planet Fitness. YEY!

  5. Fall seems to be back in full swing.  After temperatures dancing between warmer and cooler it was nice to for it to finally feel like true fall.
Hope you all have a fun weekend!!!

Birchbox October 2014.

It's been a while since I've shared what I received in my Birchbox.  I still get excited everything time I see the pink box in my mailbox, So let's see what I received this month.

  1. Ok, this is obviously the most exciting thing I received this month.  The Beauty Blender.  I have gone back and forth on wanting a Beauty Blender for a while, my mom loves hers.  I'm just not used to make up sponges so I couldn't see my self spending the money on one.  However, now I am super excited to have one!!
  2. The Camille Beckman Tuscan Honey Glycerine Hand Therapy.  I have to admit, I'm over the hand cream samples.  I'm pretty sure I get one every month, but have yet to have one that truly wows me.  This sample is alright, it smells nice, and does leave my hands soft.  Nothing too exciting thought.  But maybe I'll change my mind after using it longer.
  3. ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Kitty.  This is my second ModelCo lipstick, and I still love it.  My first lipstick was a red shade, but Kitty is a soft neutral pink shade.  It has a berry scent that I love too, and goes on super smooth.  Definitely great for a basic everyday makeup look.
  4. SAGE + fastern in Onward. I have mixed feeling about this product, probably won't be purchasing it.  It's a grapefruit, green apple, and lemon roller ball scent.  Don't get me wrong it smells nice, but I feel like I've purchased similar scents from Dove sprays at the drugstore.  The other downside, when I opened the box, the writing on this sample was almost entirely gone.  I had no idea what it was until I pulled out the info card.  It looks like it was used, maybe a tester in the store with the way the writing was worn of.  I'm not saying it was used, it just looks like it based on the worn off writing.
  5. dr. brandt Pores No More Vaccum Cleaner.  I did enjoy this product, I definitely noticed it cleaned out my pores.  I only put in on my T-Zone where my pores are larger and need extra attention.  I am not sure if I would actually purchase this product myself since I have some other products I enjoy, but if you need help cleaning out the pores this is definitely a good product for that.

Mini Weekend Beauty Haul

I wasn’t planning on doing really any shopping this weekend, but I ended up not being able to resist the urge to do so.

Friday night I had to travel about 3 hours south with my sister to Manchester, VT.  Her husband is a coach for the local high school football game and so we decided to take the trip down to watch them play.  Manchester also has outlet stores, YEY!!!!!  And so we got to town early, where the just so happens to be a Company Cosmetic Store, and I was instantly in heaven.

Ok enough jib jab, lets get to the goods.
  1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation: Warm Bisque.  I actually purchased the matte oil control version, which based on the fact that it’s not on their website I believe this version is discontinued.  Either way I’m excited to finally have this cult classic. 
  2. Mac Powder Blush: Taupe Shape.  A great matte taupe that will be good for subtle contouring. 
  3. Clinique Even Better Concealer: Porcelain.   I still have acne so I can never have enough concealer, and I was so excited when I found this gem.
  4. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light. Again another classic in the cosmetic world, so when I saw the samples at the counter I couldn’t not purchase it.  I’ve been using a primer for the Body Shop for a while, so I can’t wait to give this a try.
And for the 2 drugstore purchases:
  1. Rimmel London Scandaleyes Rockin’ Curves Mascara.  Ok, I really didn’t need another mascara but the brush on this one got be really curious.  I’ve only used it once, so I am not 100% sold on it yet, but I will still give it time before I make my ultimate decision.
  2. And as I talked about the other day, the Rimmel London Salon Pro Colour with Lycra in Soul Session.  This polish has quickly become one of my favorites, and I already can’t wait to go  back and get more shade.  
So that was my weekend mini beauty haul.  Hope you all had a fun weekend!!
