Petit Vour
April 2014 Box



Boheme Beauty




I heard about Petit Vour Via Makeuptalk.com and found out that its a vegan subscription box. I was definately interested, as I love products that have no animals/ not tested on animals in cosmetics.

So I gave it a go @ 26.58$  CDN a month.

Here's what I received in my FIRST Petit Vour April Sub box.




Lily Lolo Pressed Eyeshadow Quad 
"Molten Bronze"




I really adore this little palette, all the colors compliment each other very nicely, and the quality of it is amazing, very pigmented and buttery smooth application.
Retail :  32$
Overall Rating 5/5




Kimberly Parry 
Organics Creamy Cleanser


I haven't used this yet but it is high in sea minerals and vitamins. It is a cocnut argan cleanser which helps skin look and feel soft and silky.
Sounds nice if you ask me, and smells very nice.

*Update* - My fiance' used this and broke out immediately after using it lol - I tossed it in the garbage.

Retail: (for full size - 79$)
Overall Rating  - TBA






Jane Scrivner 
Skincare Moisturizer


This has organic oils which combined increase luminescence and improve skins elasticity.

Sounds promising!! Smells nice.

Retail: (for full size - 49-55$)
Overall Rating - TBA




Harvey Prince 
Yogini Fragrance


This is a fragrance roller that calms the mind, soothes the soul and free's the spirit.
Its infused with sandalwood , grapefruit and Egyptian Myrrh,
It does by the way smell very relaxing, and very calming. I really enjoy this product!
probably the second best item in this box, well worth the price.

Retail:  (for full size 21$)
Overall Rating : 5/5

Love love it!!


Well my first box from Petit Vour was a big hit, so I think I will continue subbing for the meantime!!
I enjoyed every item in the box, and best of all, no animals were hurt or used in this box.
Xoxoxo

Lip Factory
April 2014 Box




So today I received my very first  Lip Factory Box and Im not very happy with it.I paid
30$ for this box...


First I received the Be a Bombshell in the color "Fetish". This is an eye pencil.
Its cute, but it won't be my go-to eye pencil.
Total value IMO 2$ 
Total Retail Value In LF Opinion - 14$??!




Next is Be A Bombshell eyeshadow in the color "Tempted" Its a shimmery orange color.
This does not work well with my yellow undertoned skin, so Ill skip this or give it away.The thing I've noticed with Be A Bombshell is that its very cheap, I would not go out of my way to make a purchase from this "company"

Total Value IMO 1.50$
 Total Retail Value In LF Opinion -14$? lol



Ofra lipstick in the color #107. There is no name for this color, but its a cute pink with a red and purple undertone. Very cheap as well.
Total Value IMO 3$
Total Retail Value In LF Opinion -13$?! (Hardly)


Jessie's Girl eyeliner in the color Black. I can always use a black eyeliner, so Im happy with this.
Total Value IMO 1.50$
Total Retail Value In LF Opinion - 1.99$ (They close on this one)



NYX Butter Gloss in the color "Peaches And Cream" Love this color, you really can't go wrong with a NYX product.

Total Value 5$



Last & definately LEAST is this ugly nail polish by "Color Club" in the color "Earthy Angel"
Omg this is the most revolting nail polish color I've ever seen, and I will NOT be wearing this anytime soon. If anyone wants it, send me a message!

Total Value IMO 1$
Total Retail Value In LF Opinion - 8$ (LOL)

Overall, not very happy with this month's box so I cancelled my subscription. I hate Be a Bombshell products and I think its a sad excuse to put this in anyone's sub boxes. Waste of space and money.
I know Ipsy had these products in a few of their bags as well, and I  also did not enjoy them. Very cheap, dollarstore quality.

LIP FACTORY STATUS - CANCELLED

Happy Easter
  Happy Easter everyone!!
Wow, has this year gone by so fast, its already Easter time!
I usually do all my holiday shopping weeks in advanced to beat the crowds, but I always end up having to grab a few extra goodies here and there, so YES I do experience the packed stores, no parking spots, and a cleaned out shelves of chocolate and hor's D'Oeuvre’s, but after all that, driving around from store to store, day after day to complete the perfect Easter baskets for my Daughter and Husband, it all paid off and tomorrow they will hunt for their goodies!
I spent about 100$+ on both baskets, mind you I did purchase a lot of items from Dollarama for my daughter, because they had some new brand name items that just arrived, which I had to pick up multiples of, such as the Polly Pocket figurines in the foil packets!  These basket's didn't break the wallet either! Check out the baskets below. 
(There are a few things not shown in some of the baskets, due to me running out and picking up a few more things hehe)


2 Year old Daughters Basket (49$)





Husband's Basket (70$) 
 I bought him the Adventure Time Monopoly Game Board as well as a fleece blanket and a belt, that's not shown in the picture total = 70$



What kinda of treat ideas did you come up with for Easter?

Leave you're comments below & HAPPY EASTER!

Ipsy Glam Bag

April 2014
 



So today I received my Ipsy Glam bag, and I must say I was sooo excited!!! Im in love with Urban Decay's 24/7 Eye pencils, and I was running out of my old one, so this came in perfect timing!
This month's theme is called "Beauty Rocks"
and by the items in the bag, it definately rocks!! If you have not signed up with Ipsy, its 16.95$ a month with shipping to Canada (Included) , and this Subscription is one of my fav's!


Demeter - Jasmine Roll On perfume oil
 


 So the first thing I got in my Ipsy Bag is Jasmine Roll on perfume Oil by Demeter. The scent is very strong so you only need a quick roll, nothing more, otherwise you will smell like an old lady wearing Avon perfume from the 80's, and you definately DO NOT want that!
I really like smell of this use a small quantity though. Its a great item, and Im soo happy I received it!

Overall Rating  - 4.5/5




MaryKay at Play



Next up is – Mary Kay's @ Play Jelly Lip Gloss in the color “Teddy Bare”, cute name btw. Ok so this lipgloss is very very sticky, it has a very nice pigment to it which I like, and the color is a light pinky nude,  a light shimmer, its also very glossy and fun, it would look nice with a nude lipstick, definitely not one of my favorites, but its up there :)

Overall Rating 4/5




 
Urban Decay's 24/7
 Glide On Eye Pencil





This is my Favorite item in my Ipsy Bag, Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner Pencil in the color “Black Velvet” this looks full size, so Im pretty happy with this! I got it just in time as I was running out of my other one. Its a matte velvety black color, and it stays on FOREVER!! It glides on smooth, and drys which is amazing because I've tried a lot of different black eyeliners, and they all wore off pretty quick. This definitely my go-to staple eyeliner, everyone should own this!
Overall Rating 5/5


DR Brandt 
Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant



 Im sooooooooooo happy I was able to get the DR Brandt Microdermabrasion in my bag, because I reallly wanted to purchase this on Sephora but it was 90$, so this is pretty cool that I get to try it before I pay full price! Sooooo excited to try this tonight :) I will update my review on it as soon as I've finished using it 
The size of my sample is .25 Oz /7.5g  - decent size.
Full Size Retails for 90$

RainbowHoney NailPolish - "Midnight Fountain"


The color I received was “Midnight Fountain”
Ok so my first thought on this nail polish was that it looked “indie” don't get me wrong I LOVEE Indie polishes but this one brought me right back to grade 7/8. It brought back a lot of memories, was that a bad thing? No, a good thing? Yes.. It was nice, anyways I love love this polish, although I would have preferred a black or pink sparkle, but the blue is cute too boot and I wont be complaining about this. The packaging is adorable, and the quality is fabulous, obviously since it was Made in the USA! I will be purchasing from this company again soon.

The size I received - 5ml
Overall rating 4.5/5



 
This month's Ipsy bag was a HUGE hit!! I loved everything in it, and will keep sub'ing until they stop!

Divergent Cosmetics
Palette


 divergent

 





Ok so, I heard about the Divergent Collector's Kit before it was released, but just recently I started looking into it again because I forgot the release date. I figured I would do something shopping on Sephora.ca but when I found the collector's kit, it was ... sold out :(
I'm very disappointed that I missed out on the first release, and I'm soooo hoping that release more sometime soon! The color's look amazing, and I heard great reviews about this kit, that I'm dying to get my hands on it! I looked around to see if they had a sign up option to be the first to know when they release more, but unfortunately that's not an option. I guess I will just have to keep checking back. 71$ is a steal for this kit!!! and I can't wait to spend every last nickel on it.


Did you purchase the Divergent collector's kit??
