Boxy Charm/February Unboxing+Review

It's BoxyMail Time, this month's theme is Galaxy Glow. It is definitely giving me all the Space Jams vibes. If you aren't familiar with BOXYCHARM it is a beauty subscription for $21 a month. Usually you get 5-6 full size products!
Based on the theme I thought that the products were going to be vibrant, glowy, or have a neon effect. There were so many variations on their IG that I was not sure if I was going to like this month's box. The five items that were included in my box were a highlighter palette, shimmer veil, eye pencil, glitter, and trio brush set. (Disclaimer: this review is NOT sponsored by BOXYCHARM, I bought this with my own money, all opinions are mine. I'm sharing because "Sharing is Caring.")

NAKED COSMETICS
Holographic Highlighter Palette retails $39.99
This palette comes with six stunning holographic shades. Each iridescent shade is perfect for highlighting and layering to transform any look into something whimsical. I'm still experimenting with highlighting. I really love how it looks when your taking photos. Not as an everyday look it is a bit much. I still don't know if I'm completely in the bandwagon, because some people will think of you as a glazed donut, believe me I'd rather eat one than look like one lol.
COVERFX
Shimmer Veil retails $28
These multi-use, shimmering cream colors are crease-proof enough for the boldest of eye looks. It is formulated with a weightless finish for a shimmering effect anywhere on the face. You can apply this as a highlighter, or even on your lips. Very unicorn or mermaid vibes if you ask me, perfect for an avant-garde makeup or Halloween look.
VINTAGE COSMETICS
Smokey Eye Pencil retails $21
This is a richly pigmented smokey eye pencil delivers intense jet-black definition. This is a soft formula that glides on your lid without tugging or pulling. It would have been fun if this was a different color other than black to tie it in with the theme don't you think? Perhaps a blue, pink, or neon green!
BELLÁPIERRE COSMETICS
Cosmic Glitter retails $15
This is an ultra-fine loose face and body glitter. Yes glitter is definitely making a comeback! I probably won't wear it on my body but on my eyelids. This is a very vibrant blue, it really goes perfect with the highlighter palette.

CROWN PRO
Trio Brush Set retails $29.99
This trio set is perfect for contouring your face. The small brush can be used to conceal imperfections and highlight underneath the eyes. The medium size brush can be used to sculpt the cheekbones and perimeter of the face. The larger brush is used to set everything in place. Because this are white brushes with pink tips, they will require extra care. (Tip: wash your brushes at least once a week, your skin will thank you and your brushes will feel like new!) The bristles are so fluffy and soft great quality.

I finally accumulated enough Charms, which are points to redeem towards their Charm room. They stepped up their game and added a great selection of products. Just before everything was gone I was able to get a liquid lipstick. I'm pretty excited to try this shade it is pretty vibrant and unique. I'm trying to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to colors, I normally wear a nude or rose shade. Aesthetica Long Lasting  Matte Liquid Lipstick in Splendor and retails at $16. This lipstick is bold perfect for a date night.  It is formulated to last for hours without becoming dry or cakey. I really love how smooth it feels and doesn't feel dry even if it's a matte finish.
Overall this was not a bad box but it would have been appropriate for Halloween, just saying. I just don't see myself wearing a lot of these products as an everyday look. I'm pretty excited about the Crown Pro brushes since I'm still pretty new at contouring these are perfect for it. So the total value for this box is $133.98 not bad considering you only pay $21!

Keep Me Safe Organics / Skin Care Review

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …
