Bigger Brighter Eyes with LensCircle Circle Lenses

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of LensCircle. All opinions are my own.
Circle Lenses have been very popular in recent years, I've worn a few styles in my looks in the past. They just give that something extra to Halloween and Special Effects makeup looks. LensCircle.com carries many of the most popular styles and eye colors from blue, green, grey, brown, to black, purple, and pink. The Hazel Twilight Circle Lenses are Vampire worthy...

Loxa Beauty Review: Paul Mitchell & Malibu C Hair Care

Playing catch up on reviews. It has been a whirlwind of a month but I'm hoping to get my scheduled posts up so I can take a little review break..maybe start posting some actual makeup again! :) Today though it is all about the hair. I've partnered with my affiliate the online beauty retailer Loxa Beauty to share my choices from the Paul Mitchell and Malibu C haircare lines.

Loxabeauty carries over 3,000 professional hair and beauty products. You can shop top salon professional brands such as Paul Mitchell, Joico, American Crew, CHI, the balm and more. My hair battle always comes down to keeping brass out of my blonde and giving life to my fine hair so I chose the Art of Blonde Trio by Paul Mitchell and the Malibu C Hard Water Wellness kit to put to the test.

Loxabeauty.com is kindly offering my readers some really great discounts too!

Healthy Beauty in the New Year Review

Like many one of my New Years resolutions was to get healthier. I already lead a fairly healthy lifestyle but January's fresh start really makes you want to kick it in to full gear. In no way am I trying to give diet or exercise advice on a beauty blog, that would be rather silly, I just felt like doing a collective review on some of the products I've implemented for getting healthier over the past two months. It was all about health products over makeup in Jan-Feb so I hope we won't mind a review post like this on a supposed to be beauty blog. Even beauty bloggers get a little bored of talking about makeup sometimes :)

#MaxYourTax with Walmart Family Mobile

With tax returns coming in splurging on a new designer bag or beauty haul is tempting, but I'm maxing my refund by cutting my phone bill and making the switch to Walmart Family Mobile. With no contact and many phones under $100, Family Mobile offers one of the lowest priced unlimited plans at $29.88/month(for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data. Treat yourself and save money at the same time? I call that a total win-win!

BOXYCHARM January Subscription Box #YearoftheCharm

BoxyCharm was my only subscription box this month. I don't know if it's sticking to my resolution of cutting the excess or if I'm just over a lot of subscription boxes. Either way, BoxyCharm is one I won't be giving up any time soon. For $21 you get 4-5 full size beauty products and I've never once been disappointed.

January's Box theme is  "Celebrate in Style" ...with a little makeup!

Mirabella Face Prime Full size $29
Pur-lisse Skin Sparkle Flash Tattoos $12
Total $124 in value

Seriously. There's a FULL SIZE Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum in here. How incredible is that?

 
Beauty for Real is a brand that I was happy to see in here. I purchased some of their stuff on SHOPLATELY and really loved the lip cream's and nail polishes. 

"Always There" Lip Cream is that so hot right now 90's-esque lip color, a MLBB leaning brown. I have Flash & Infared Lip Creams so I pulled those out to swatch too. These have a soft featherlight cream feel and the full coverage of a lipstick. I reach for these frequently they're super comfortable to wear and long lasting. The tube lights up too!

The Perfect Lip Pencil NUDE
The Perfect Pencil is a true natural lip color hue, ideal for lining lips of all skin tones. The velvety texture glides on easily, while the tip allows you to be precise and in control. It enhances your lips while keeping your lip color within the lines. This is a great lip pencil shade to have in your collection. It's that go to not too pink not too brown color that covers your lip lining needs from nude to red lips.
Pur-lisse Flash Tattoo's
The 14 year old in me loves that temp tattoo's are making a comeback, they're just fun! I couldn't find a link to these, but I get my temporary tattoo's from awsmtattoo.com and they have a lot of flash tattoo styles.

Mirabella Face Prime
Infuse your skin with Vitamin E while minimizing the appearance of large pores and fine lines with this silky smooth face primer. Haven't tried this out on the face yet but it feels a lot like Smashbox photo finish, silky with a lot of slip.
Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum
The I hope you subscribed this month just for this product product. $47! Tarte's original Maracuja Oil is something amazing. The Bronzing Serum has the same hydrating properties with a gradual self-tanning complex. It naturally bronzes for a healthy glowing complexion. Being so pale I'm a little hesitant to try this out, here's to hoping for golden and not orange. It sounds like a fantastic alternative to self tanners and I'm sure it will get a lot of use come Summer. My pasty skin says thank you BoxyCharm.
