My $100 Summer Box of Style Unboxing and Details

My $100 Summer Box of Style Unboxing and Details If you saw my Spring post/video (see here), you might’ve noticed that I wasn’t HUGELY impressed. I wasn’t too fond of the earbuds, although I have used them a few times. I also haven’t used even one of the oil blotting sheets. Paper towels are so […]

Is the Play! by Sephora Subscription Worth It? | My 3 Month Experience Who doesn’t love Sephora? No, really…who doesn’t?

Inside the Brand: ColourPop

Inside the Brand: ColourPop First, the introduction. Who is Alexanna? I first met Alexanna my freshman year of college at CU. Even though she wasn’t in my sorority, she was at our sorority house and our events so much that she became like a sister to me (plus, she didn’t have to pay! smart lady). We roomied […]

Is this $100 subscription box worth the hype? | My First Zoe Report Box of Style Unboxing

Is this $100 subscription box worth the hype? | My First Zoe Report Box of Style Unboxing Maybe I’m becoming a sucker for subscription boxes. Maybe I’m just bored. Maybe I use my makeup artist profession as an excuse to try anything/everything shiny and pretty. Either way, when I saw Rachel Zoe launched a quarterly […]

Fab Fit Fun Unboxing Natalie Setareh

[Video] FabFitFun Unboxing: Fabulous or A Flop?

[Video] FabFitFun Unboxing: Fabulous or A Flop? Ok, ok. This box was one of those, “Are you trying the FabFitFun as part of your unboxing series?” boxes. So many people had asked if I’ve unboxed a FFF that I felt obliged to give it a try after running upon an oh-so-convenient 50% promo code through a […]

Box #6: A {Bonus} Birchbox Unboxing! I won’t lie, this Birchbox definately fit “me” a little better than the first one, not that I didn’t like the first one (see here). The products in this box were more in line with my beauty needs and wants 🙂 Check out my second unboxing below and remember, […]

Box #8: [Video] Testtube Beauty Unboxing & First Impression

Box #8: [Video] Testtube Beauty Unboxing and First Impression Alas, I have made it to Testtube Beauty. At $30/box or shall I say, “tube,” this is the priciest subscription service of the bunch. However, this isn’t a monthly box…you receive your tube every two month, so that averages to about $15/month. Is it worth the […]

Box 7: [Video] Glossybox Unboxing and First Impression I can’t believe this is my second to last box to unbox with you! I must say, this project has been extremely helpful and the feedback I’ve received from everyone has been great! I’m so excited to talk about and/or refer clients and friends to different boxes….
