Chic Couture-November Beauty Boxes


Time to share November's beauty boxes! Man it comes around quick!

I stuck with Classic with a Twist and got Devon and Shari.  Shari is a great pinkie nude neutral! And Devon has a microshimmer in it but I can't tell it when it's on my nails, still a pretty grey shade just wished that shimmer shined! And then there's the Go Big mascara which I got all excited for. First, I guess it wasn't ready to be put with the polish so they shipped it separately and I got it like 2 weeks after the polish.  But they did give me some Jules for it's late arrival. And second, I'm not really impressed with the formula.  I mean if the name has the word 'big' in it then I guess I was expecting BIG and got not so big.  I might have too high expectations of mascara.  I usually wear two different formulas at a time to barely look like I have lashes!! And I haven't gotten in the habit of wearing falsies mainly because I have to wear glasses! Oh well, the search continues.....



Pretty good bag once more from Ipsy.  I did look in my Glam Room before I got my bag and was kinda disappointed in the eye base, shade of the lip stain and the hairspray. I took the eye base to mean primer and well I'm an Urban Decay Primer Potion die hard. Seems like I always get red shades of lip products and I have done my reviews and rejected red!! I need some pretty pinks that are not light or neutrals!! Or how about a peach? Plus it seemed realllllly dark! And then I'm not sure if me and moroccan oil get along and that's what I thought the hairspray is but it says argan oil. Which I googled and they are not the same thing. So! Nevertheless, I have tried all the products except the hairspray and was pleasantly surprised!! I've been using the eye base over my primer and then putting metallic shades on top and it makes them pop so I really like it!! The lip stain turned out to be a pretty shade of red and I love the eyeliner and the highlighter was ok. (I love The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer highlighter!)

As always, this is fun stuff for me!

2014 Fall Mantle





A couple of weeks ago I was in Sam's checking out their cupcakes.  And of course looked at all their Christmas! Well down a decor aisle I came across the Give Thanks art that I had seen before and liked but didn't want to pay $30 for.  Honestly, that's probably a good price since the art is reversible! It has 'Welcome' on the other side. But to my giddy surprise they were marked down to $9.81!! How could I pass that up? Well I didn't and I actually bought one for my Secret Sister at church too! Woohoo!
So I added some flowers and pumpkins and was done with my Fall Mantle in no time!  I did think about adding a banner of some kind but we are going to be gone the week of Thanksgiving on vacation ( insert excited face!) so I just kept it simple!

I love it! I will probably use the 'Welcome' side for a January mantle!!

And since I did take pictures of this last week but the lighting was yuck and decided to redo them I thought I'd #keepitreal and show you the real picture......



The struggle is real ya'll!! I know you know!!

Happy Thanks and Giving time lovelies!!

Chic Couture-October Beauty Boxes


For the first time ever in my Julep Maven history I had a shipping issue with my monthly box in October.  I had saved up enough Jules for a free box and used them on a basics box. I got my email with the shipping info ( yay for it not being DHL anymore!) and when it said it had been delivered but I still didn't have my box I had to call customer service. And had a great experience. They reshipped and I got it just fine! Now I realize others have had major issues but to me it seems like they listen to feed back and make adjustments.  

So the basics box is the Bare Face Cleansing Oil, Konjac sponge and Blank Canvas Face Primer.  I had run out of the Oil and tried a drugstore version and realized how much I like Julep's! It's the best to remove mascara.... well really all of your makeup.  The sponge is nice.  And then the primer has lasted me a very long time since I just apply it to my t zone and it works great! So I needed these items!!



Great Ipsy month!! Love the Nicole by OPI polish....very fall!! Mascara is ok, not anything I'd purchase. The lipgloss is a nice nude pinkish color and love having a scrub around to brighten up my skin when I feel like it's dull.  Haven't tried the lotion yet since I just loaded up on Bath & Body!

Can't wait for November's goodies!!
