Is the Play! by Sephora Subscription Worth It? | My 3 Month Experience

Is the Play! by Sephora Subscription Worth It? | My 3 Month Experience Who doesn’t love Sephora? No, really…who doesn’t? The second I learned they were putting out a subscription box, I joined the waitlist. A few months later, I felt like I won the lottery when they said I am off the waitlist. Woot! […]

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!

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 & First Impression

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…. […]

BirchBox Subscription Box

Box #6: Birchbox Unboxing & First Impression

Box #6: Birchbox Unboxing and First Impression Ok, so finally Birchbox. Like ipsy, Birchbox has a huge following. They are the matriarch of the beauty box subscription service! Receiving one box from them is not necessarily going to be as worthwhile as becoming a long-term subscriber. Birchbox is supposed to match smarter with time based […]

Box #3: [Video] October BeautyDNA Unboxing

Box #3: [Video] October BeautyDNA Unboxing BeautyDNA nailed it, again! They matched me with an awesome product that I can really use and benefit from. I’m still testing out my product from my first BeautyDNA box (watch here/read my previous BeautyDNA Boxhere). Again, I am really grateful that that BeautyDNA donated three boxes, or should […]

Box #5 [Video] Boxycharm Unboxing &First Impression

Box #5 [Video] Boxycharm Unboxing and First Impression First of all, I want to apologize in the delay in getting this video/blog post up! It’s been a crazy time for myself, our family… I’m sure you can understand. With that being said Boxycharm is awesome! It’s a bit pricier than ipsy, BB5, Birchbox (upcoming) but […]
