Loot Crate June 2013

WHOOT! I got my Loot Crate finally! I was really excited to get this box and it did not disappoint. I didn't do an unboxing video because I am getting ready to attend Florida Supercon in Miami next weekend. But I promise that I will do a video for this box next month.

The Box

 The Stuff

Love the variety in the box!! This months theme was mash-up. I think they did a really good job pulling off the theme!

BIC Tech Stylus 2 in 1 pen

This is such an awesome item! The black end is a pen and the blue is a stylus! The stylus works perfectly with my android phone and my Ipad. It also works really well with my touch screen monitor. That is something I was surprised about. retail value is $6.

8 - Bit Glasses

These glasses are not only stylish but offer great UV protection too! I really love these glasses, they are way more comfortable then they look! And I love that they are orange and black which are the colors of the Loot Crate! Retail price is $6.

Dead Pool-Aid T-Shirt

This is my favorite item in the box. I love this shirt. I was worried the I would get a men's large shirt considering this is a gamer box but before sending the box Loot Crate e-mailed me and requested my sizing info. And sure enough I got a Ladies XL. And it fits me perfectly! Retail price is $15.


I love the mario and ninja turtle sticker! It so cute and a perfect example of this months theme.  Im guessing the retail for both these stickers is around $2.

Loot Crate Wall Tangrams

These are stickers you can put on your wall and then move them around to play with the shapes. Will I use these? No. But it is a cute Idea and I will hang onto them just in case. Estimated value $1.


Who doesn't love candy? Yay. Value is around $1

Stan Lee's Comikaze Golden Ticket

You can use the code on the back of this ticket to see if you get a free 1 or 3 day pass, a 50% discount or a 20% discount on a ticket to this event. Seems like a great idea, however, this takes place in California and I live in Florida, even with a free ticket I couldn't afford to go. But I didn't win anyways. My ticket was good for 20% off.


Loot Crate costs just under $20 a month and the value of this box is $31. I think the actual cost of the box is about $13 and the rest is shipping though. Not bad at all and I really loved all the high priced items in the box. If you want to get signed up for this awesome subscription service please click this link! Get Loot Crate!

Beauty Army June 2013

Hi Darlings!
      Sorry this took so long. I actually got my Beauty Army, Birchbox, and Ipsy all on the same day this month. But its here now. You can check out my unboxing video here: Other then that lets jump right into the amazingness!


I got a white box this month, maybe next month I'll get a pink one! :)

Hello Gorgeous

I love the tips that are included each month!

Addiction NV Cosmetics - Line Up

This is a gel liner in the color Jail Bait. On the website the color is described as black with purple glitter. This is a full size item and retails for $16. I really like this color. I have been experimenting with Gel Liners recently and I am really excited to try this one out!

Mark. Scanda-Lash

Last month I got this in black and I was only kinda happy with it. The formula doesn't have that "POW" that I look for in my mascara, however, I don't have a brown mascara so I am happy to add this to my collection. This is full size and retails for $6.50

Mini Kittour - Just In Case

I love this little jar! There are just so many uses for it! This retails for $3.

COLORSMASH - Hair Shadow

Ok, someone help me out here. The full size is 0.11oz and our sample is 3g, isn't that just about the same? I think that this is close to a full size product. Full size retails for $15. Hair chalk is all the rage right now. I have used other brands but I am very excited to try this out. I really feel like in the long run though buying human hair extensions in the color you want is better then this. The color here is called "Rags to Riches"

Skinn - Color Touch

This is a product that you can use on your eyes, lips, or cheeks which I think is a really cool idea. However, for me the color just didn't work out. It comes off so shear that you can't even tell I've put it on. This is just under a full size product and is valued at $13.40.


Enspri - Sheer Ceramide and Beyond Moisture

Honestly, I won't use this but I will give it to my mom to try out! Our sample is worth about $4. 


Beauty Army is $12 a month and our box value is..... $57!! Wow! I really do love Beauty Army and I highly recommend getting a subscription!

Ipsy June 2013

Hello Beautifuls!
     I got my Ipsy bag yesterday! Check out the unboxing here: I love Ipsy, but I don't love their shipping. My bag sat just hours from my house for a week while DHL transferred it to USPS.  But enough of that, lets jump right in!

The Bag

I LOVE this bag! It is sooo cute! The animal print with the neon green really works.

The Stuff

On The Wild Side

The theme this month!

Cailyn - Line Fix Gel Eyeliner

This is a full size liner that retails for $21. I really wanted the black one but I ended up with purple which turned out to be okay. I love this liner! I dont however like the brush, I applied it using my own angled brush and it was amazing. Its waterproof, smudgeproof, and lasts forever. Best eye liner ever!

NYX - Blush

Another full size item! This is the color Angel and it is perfect for me! I am actually wearing it today and this will be an item that I will repurchase. It retails for $5.

J.Cat Sparkling Cream Palette

Full size. Okay. Retails for $4.49. Okay. Other then that.... What were you thinking Ipsy! I thought this was eye shadow... But the box says DO NOT PLACE NEAR EYES. So its body glitter?? I'm not 12. Sorry. Best part about this product? Its cruelty free.

Chella - Ivory Lace Highlighter

This is another Item I love!!! It's not full size but this sample is worth around $10. I've never had a highlighter pencil and I really like it. I wore it today and it looks so pretty with out you being able to see I put something there.

Starlooks Lip Pencil

Another item I love and am wearing today. This is full size and retails for $12. The color here is Tipsy and I highly recommend it.


Ipsy is $10 a month and this bag is valued at $52.49 so I am really happy with this bag! You've impressed me again Ipsy. :)

Birchbox June 2013

Hello Loves!
     I finally got my first Birchbox! Mine got shipped a little later then all the others. So that's why this is late. But I am really excited and I did do a youtube unboxing but it hasn't been edited yet. But I promise that when its done I'll post a link. Anywho! Lets get into it!

Finished the Youtube video! See it here:

The Box

This is apparently the new box design. Honestly, one word comes to mind with this. Plain. Its made out of really thin cardboard.  I really don't even like touching it. 

Hello from Birchbox!

The back of this card has all the things that are included in the box including the full size prices.

The Stuff

Kerastase - Chroma Thermique

It says that this is a protective styling aid that keeps your color-treated strands safe from UV rays. I really don't feel like I have a need for a product like this. I don't go in the sun that much, but I will try it out next time I do decide to spend the day out. One good thing that I have to say about this (even though its a foil packet) is they are rather large, so you should be able to get more then one use out of them. This little sample is worth $3.60. The retail on the full size is $42

Mirenesse - Glossy Kiss Lipstick

I love this! I wish it were a full size. At first glance, I thought it was, but it doesn't twist up. The color is 8. Cheeky Kiss.The formula is amazing. And it smells really good too. I might purchase the full size of this. Our sample is worth about $2.

Update! I was informed that this is actually a full size item that sharpens! I have no idea why they didn't just give us one that twists up... but yay! That raises the value of this item to $29.95. 

Birchbox + Color Club = Wanderlust Collection

The color I got is called Reign In Spain. At first I didn't care for it. I'm really not an orange girl, but this color matches perfectly with the scarf from the Pop Sugar Must Have box this month. So I am pretty excited. However, the polish itself is terrible. It's super thick and it is so so streaky. This bottle retails for $2. 

Coola - Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer

This smells amazing. However, for me SPF 30 isn't enough when it comes to sunscreen. So I wont really use it, which is sad because so far its the priciest item in the box at $6.40


  I was a little surprised to see this in the box... They are nice. But does anyone send them anymore. I don't so I wont be using it. I'm guessing here that this is worth about $1.

Tweezerman - Matchbox Itty Bitty Nail Files

This is the only full size item in the box. There are 12 of these little nail files. Retail is $5. And I will probably use it, but I wouldn't buy it again. They are cute though. 


I paid $10 for the box and got exactly $20 worth of product. Meh. I'm really not impressed. But one of the reasons I signed up for Birchbox is that when you review products on their site you get points that you can use on full size products. So I am still excited to try that. 

With the value changed for the Mirenesse item the value of this box is just under $40. Much better then before!

Pop Sugar Must Have June 2013

Hi Everyone!
     I'm so excited! I got my Pop Sugar box in the mail today. (I'm excited a lot.) I was looking foward to this box so much and I am REALLY impressed!! I am so excited to share this with you all. The box is $37 and change. And so far its my favorite subscription service.

Don't forget to check out my unboxing video here:

The Box

 I accidentally left an item out of this photo; there was also a DVD included. Sorry! I was too excited I guess. 

Project 7 Quench The Thirsty Wintergreen Mints

" Project 7 is an amazing company that makes products that give
back to a variety of charities in America and abroad. We picked
these wintergreen mints, which benefit a project to bring clean
drinking water to communities around the world."

I love these!! They support a good cause and they taste amazing. Also the packaging is great! It's so cute to just throw in your purse for the day to freshen your breath. Retail on this is about $2. 

Hard Candy Fitness DVD - Addicted To Sweat 4

"Want to get the secrets behind one of Madonna's go-to workout
routines? Use a chair and this DVD - and get ready to sweat. 
This intense but fun workout is aimed to sculpt, tone and
tighten the entire body."

I cant wait to try this. I love fitness DVDs so this is so amazing to get in my box!!  Retail for this is $19.99. 

Fit Popcorn - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

"With 40 calories or fewer per cup, this is an addictive snack you 
certainly don't have to feel guilty about. It's all natural and
gluten-free, with zero trans fat. Try it to perk up your afternoon, or 
bring it out when you watch the big summer blockbuster."

This popcorn has just a hint of taste. It was okay, but a little to bland for my tastes.  Retail price for this is about $6.

Juice Beauty CC Cream

This is something I am so excited to try. I had been wanting to try a CC cream recently so I am so happy they sent me this! And another amazing thing... they sent 2 color choices! No more being stuck with a product that you cant wear. And you can always give the spare to a friend. Retail for both of these is about $4 each.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer

"An ultimate moisturizer with a proprietary blend of fruit stem cells infused
 into a Vitamin C and an organic resveratrol grapeseed rich formula to 
repair damage and aggressively firm and decrease wrinkles. Certified organic, 
antioxidant-rich ingredients and plant oils hydrate and improve elasticity for 
lasting, advanced age defy results."

I did go ahead and try this, and it is a very heavy lotion. But I really do like it. For hours after using this my face felt moisturized and soft. I really loved it, however I doubt I will repurchase it because the retail price for this item is $65.00. 

They also included a coupon for %20 off your next order.

Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger

I was so excited to see this in the box! I can't wait to read this book. Also they included a really cute bookmark. I think it's really great that they even thought about that. This is a hardback book and retails for $25.99.

Gorjana & Griffin Zuma Scarf

My favorite item in the box! I adore this scarf. I cant wait till its a little cooler so that I can wear it. Here in Florida I really don't need a scarf in the summer. But I really am so excited to use it. And a $25 gift card was included to buy something else from the designer. This scarf retails for $62.


I love this box. It is %100 worth the $37 that I paid. The total value of the box totals $213.98!!! That is such a good value. I am already looking forward to my next box!!! I highly recommend this box!
