Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit-review

*I received this product free to test out from Influenster. I am not required to write a review or mention this product on my blog. All opinions are honest and my own. Want to try out free products? Check out Influenster!* 

Okay, I had to do a blog post of the Kiss Ever Pro Lash Kit.
Because I love these lashes!

I'm not normally a lash girl. I just try to make the most of what I got and be done with it.
I'll only break out the lashes on special occasions because I hate messing with the lashes, making sure they fit right, the messy glue. Ugh. Too much of a fuss.

When I got this lash kit in my voxbox I noticed it's an all in one kit including a little tweezer tool to help place your lashes.
 I think the little plastic tool is much safer than using your metal tweezers. That could be disastrous.

Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Half Baked, and Haight swatches

A few posts back I mentioned that Urban Decay had their eyeshadows in the old packing for sale at various locations. Well, I couldn't resist so I bought a few.

I picked up Half Baked, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, and Haight.

Half Baked is in both the Naked palettes.
It's a gorgeous bronze color that glides on like butter.

Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is a glittery champagne color. This shadow tends to have a lot of fall out so be prepared. It's gorgeous though. It's also featured in several palettes.

Swatched without primer.

Haight is a frosty teal blue shade.

Sephora and the Urban Decay website still have some shades left for $6 so if you're interested go check them out!
If you order online, don't forget to use Ebates! :)

Do you have these shades? What are some of your favorite UD shadows?

November Julep bombshell box 2012

Hello, Hello.

I am all over the place today. I was thinking this was my October box, but I guess it's the November box? 
I am frazzled, I think. 
Halloween, Elections, moving soon, etc, etc.
So, anyways, here is my box. :)

The theme for this month's box was suedes. Some of the boxes also had a matte topcoat included. 
I'm not a matte or suede lover so I figured I would end up skipping my box again, but alas! The bombshell box had two non-suede polishes and a delicious body whip.

Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle

*I received the mini candle in Mahogany Teakwood from BBW free from Influenster to try out. All other candles and candle holders were purchased by me. All thoughts and opinions are honest and my own. I am not required to blog about BBW or their candles, but am doing so from my own free will.*

Hey, Everyone.

If you checked out my Influenster Beauty Blogger voxbox you'll know I got the Bath and Body Works mini candle in Mahogany Teakwood to try out.
I've been wanting to try this scent out for a while because someone mentioned it smelled like Abercrombie & Fitch  and I happen to love that scent. 
I could not, for the life of me, remember to check it out when I'd go to the BBW store, so I am sooo happy this is the scent I received. 

And in case you are curious, it does, in fact, smell like A&F, but not as strong.

The description on the bottom says:

"The scents of fine woods-mahogany, cedarwood and oak-highlighted by delicate lavender and geranium notes conjure up an escape to a cozy library on a chilly fall day."

I am not a lavender kind of girl, it gives me a headache, but this is so subtle. 
It's a nice cologne scent. If you have a guy in your life, I would suggest picking up one of these for him. Most likely he's not thinking about ways to freshen up his space and this isn't your typical girly floral or fruity scent. 

I had some of the winter scents in mini form from last year in the old packaging.
The new packaging is glass and are slightly taller but are the same product size.

I love the new packaging because you can re-use the glass holder once your candle is done.

BBW also has many cute holders to store your mini candles.

I love owls, can you tell? :)

Mini owl candle holder

Large owl candle holder that can hold medium or mini candles.

If you're interested in viewing all of BBW mini candle scent check out their website.
Mini candles are $3.50, but they are often on sale, so keep an eye out!

What are some of your favorite fall BBW candle scents?
I love Apple Crumble, Pumpkin Cupcake, and of course Mahogany Teakwood.
