NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

I've never been one to buy NYC's products because I thought they were low quality. But I tried this because I got it for free.

I was glad they gave me the one for brown eyes because I love the shades.

The picture above are better representations of the colors. The purple is a gorgeous shade! I thought this palette was really nice! The colors are pretty pigmented and look beautiful when put together. The only thing I wasn't impressed with was the primer. I would definitely try using a different primer with it. but Other than that, everything else was awesome.

You can see other products, prices and where to buy at NYC's website.

Bath and Body Works Mini Candle

YAY! More Bath and Body Works. I'm a sucker for anything from them. (: They have the best scents for everything. Especially candles!

This smell.... is. to. die. for. Best fall smell ever. I tried to order a big version of this and they didn't have any. ): I was soooo sad. Anyway, I love all of their candles. This one was super pumpkiny, and smelled like I was literally baking pumpkin cupcakes. It also had a total burn time for probably 5 hours. Which is nice for how small it is!
Buy from Bath and Body Works here.

Beauty Blogger '12 VoxBox!

Yay! I got invited to another Influenster Box. Not to mention this box is GREAT! I'm going to split up my post into individual ones for each product, but I just wanted to mention how awesome this program is. Influenster is basically a free box program you can sign up for. You can do tasks and surveys and what not to get badges. When you get badges, you become eligible for different types of boxes. So then Influenster will send you a prequal survey, and if you qualify, you get an awesome box!

I know I've posted about it before but it is seriously really awesome and definitely worth your time.

My box was packed full with goodies! I lovedddd it! Like I said before, I'm going to do separate posts on each product. But obviously, you can see that this box is awesome and better than the box that I actually pay for.

October Birchbox! (goop)

Sorry this post is so late. I've been so busy lately, then their was a death my boyfriend's family so I really have not had time to be posting until now!

I got my October box really late anyways, and it super sucked. Like, really. It sucks. So. Freaking. Bad.

As you can see, most of my box has pretty small samples. Not pleased with this. Also, there was a choice at the beginning of the month of a regular birchbox and a goop birchbox. I chose goop. Bad idea. Really bad idea. All of the newer things were in the regular birchbox this month. ):

Lulu Organics Lavender + Clary Sage Hair Powder

Really, I don't know how I feel about this stuff. The smell is awkward, but not bad. I just feel like that smell shouldn't be in my hair. The amount of product you get really isn't too bad but it sucks that it's not in a resealable package. If you're giving someone a sample that can be used more than once, you should be putting it in a container that they can close back up, imo.
Full Size- $30

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream)

This stuff. I don't even know. I used a tiny bit of the package and it says you can use it for makeup remover. So I decided to use this challenge on my mascara. NOT A GOOD IDEA. Seriously, this shit burned my eyes so bad. Oh my god it was terrible. I haven't touched it since...
Full Size- $16

Naked Princess Naked Shine Lip Gloss

I already recieved this in the one thelookbag I got. Yet of course, I got all 4 of the lippies, instead of just one. Although I like these, I would not pay the ridiculous amount for a lip gloss. There is literally nothing special about this. Not to mention they don't give you hardly any to try. It's a nice gloss, but wayyy too expensive for me. Oh, and also my paper majig it came with says coco and I actually got coral. But, whatevs.
Full Size- $26

Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask

Let me be honest here, I have not tried this. Whoops. I always forget about it. I'm kind of excited to try it though because I like the idea. Yet I did read that some people thought it felt really nasty and slimy on their face. Welp, I guess we'll see.
$28 for 4 Masks

Luna Bar-Lemon Zest

I know everyone complains about getting food in their boxes, but I like it because I'm a fatty. But when I heard this is what I would be getting I was really pissed. I thought I was going to hate it because I don't like very many lemon things. I actually liked it though. I thought it was delicious!
$18.75 for 15 Bars

So, theres my pretty crappy box. Filled with mostly foil packets and very few time uses. I'm going to stick with birchbox for another couple months and if it doesn't improve I'm dropping that shit like it's hot. :P
