Glossybox is notorious for being extremely late, but I can’t be a hypocrite because I’m the same way. This is the February box that just arrived on March 5. Oops on their part. Oh well, I still love all of these high end products. 
-Emite Makeup full size Eyelash Curler regularly priced at $30.50. That alone paid for the box itself and then some. 
-Lauren B. Beauty nail couture in City of Angels. 5 free nail polish. Cruelty free and vegan friendly. 
-OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel
-Pureology Serious Color Care hair protector
-Sumita Beauty Kaka Color Intense Pencil 
Glossybox always has fun stuff. This box is rad so I’ll forget how late it was.

I am currently obsessed with Pop Beauty Aqua Lacquer. I was lucky enough to get 2 full sized samples in my Birchbox and in my Ipsy monthly sample box. I received Floating Rose and Flowering Fuchsia. Flowering Fuchsia is definitely a color I enjoy. Once the glossiness wears away, there is still an awesome hint/ stain of color on my lips so I don’t have to keep reapplying. The applicator is like a tiny spatula which is really useful. The colors are really pretty and stand out. I love these little tubes.

This eyeshadow look was used with the Urban Decay Naked 2 and 3 palettes and all brushes are from Mac Cosmetics.

- I used Mugshot all over the lid with a 215 medium shader brush.
- Used Bootycall from the crease, to the inner corners of the eye, up to the brow bone with the 217 blending brush. I also added a little bit of Dust over the Bootycall.
- I added Verve to only the small area of the center bottom of the lid, touchng down to the lashline over top of the mugshot, using the 213 fluff brush.
- Using the 214 short shader bush, I packed in dense color of Darkside, and then Blackheart over top for extra depth, into the edge creases and the outside of the lid, kind of in a sideways ‘V’ pattern and a little on the outside lid to lashline.
- The secret weapon that pulls this whole look together is the 224 tapered blending brush- you just softly blend everything together, starting from the darkest shadows, moving in quick small strokes and circles, blending and blending until there are no harsh lines. Windshield wiper motions work great.
Any of these brushes can be replaced by other brands that work just as well, like Coastal Scents if you are on a budget. But I would definitely suggest the Mac 224 tapered blending brush. It’s magical, soft and blends perfectly without causing lids to dry out.

*Also, use a eyeshadow primer to prevent shadow creasing. Urban Decay primer Potion comes in a great subtle shimmery colors and The Balm’s Put a Lid On It both work great.

I received Nina Ultra Pro Nail Enamel in Punki Pink in one of my monthly sample boxes. I loved the bright pink color. But you MUST put a glossy top coat on top because it dries almost matte and dull. You can see the toe on the left has no top coat and it looks so dull and dry. I am terrible at painting my nails, haha. The price is really inexpensive but I wasn’t impressed.

I thought I knew better than to buy cosmetics like MAC or Benefit on eBay because 90% of the time you are getting a counterfeit/fake product. I did not know they are making fake Urban Decay Naked Palettes. I wanted the new Naked 3 palette and found it for a great price on eBay. I read the seller’s reviews, who uses the name Shadosray, and it was perfect. The photo he had listed of the Naked 3 palette was real, and matched the one on the Sephora and Ulta website.

I should have known that for $20 cheaper, it would be fake. $20 is not worth the time wasted and arguing back and forth to get my refund, and having to pay for the return shipping.

When I received it in the mail, something felt off. I did some research and compared mine to photos of real ones on the internet. It actually came inside a REAL box, but with no shadow primers, but they stated that in the listing, so I couldn’t be upset over that. Then I noticed that the lines/ indentations on the top cover tin were deep and looked liked they were done with sharp long fingernails, instead of shallow lines that blended nicely all over.

The next thing I noticed is that the lettering on the brush is black instead of gold. If you have black lettering on your brush, girlfriend, your shit is fake. You will also notice that the bristles on the fake brush are darker at the bottom and get whiter at the top, and there are no numbers on the other side of the lettering of the brush like the real one has. (Excuse my nails, I just picked off my gels and have a gnarly hangnail :( gross)

The next dead giveaway is that the lettering on the shadows is black instead of dark rose and it’s not centered. Nooner is off to the side and the B where Blackheart starts is in between Darkside and Blackheart.Β 

I saw some really sad fake palettes on the internet that have terrible colors that are nowhere near the original. This one is actually VERY similar, even when you swatch them. Although, the fake colors are missing that shimmery effect and Darkside looks way off, as well as Liar and Nooner.

When I messaged this fake seller, and demanded my money back, he tried to tell me he knows for a fact they are real and he has permission to sell them from some factory he gets them from, YEAH RITE BRAH. Who knows what is in these shadows and we are putting them on our faces???? SCARY. Ulta always has coupon codes and they send you lots of fun samples. Just for spending $50 buying the real UD NAked 3 Palette, I got a makeup bag with 12 samples for free, and another baggie with 3 samples that come with every order. If you need a coupon code, you can find them easily online or in the mail if you sign up for their mailing lists! Private Message me if you have had any experiences buying counterfeit or knockoff eBay items. You can bet your sweet ass I reported the seller to eBay and when I went to leave him negative feedback, ALL of his feedback had been changed to private and his listing for all the different counterfeit palettes he was passing off as real were removed too. I still left him bad feedback and he had the nerve to ask me to change it. HA! The part that really bugs me the most is that he used photos of a real UD NAked 3 Palette.

Lesson learned, never buy really popular makeup items from Ebay again. There are exceptions though. I subscribe to ALL of the monthly sample boxes and I get tons and tons of samples. I know some people are on waiting lists, or just like to get samples like I do. I put together A makeup bag or reusable box filled with samples that are all BRAND NEW and unopened and real, straight from the monthly sample brands. If you are interested, check out my ebay page, Moonchildren. I always have one up, and instead of 5 or 6 samples for $10- $15, I do 15 to 25 samples always under $20. Checkout my feedback score as well, 100% plus a money back guarantee.

Safe shopping and beware of those counterfeit sellers!

You are supposed to break this bath bomb into 3 pieces, but after I put 1 in, I noticed it was fading quickly and the fun was almost over. I’m used to Lush bath bombs being really fizzy and fun and lasting quite a while. This one was huge so I had high hopes, but it fizzed out quickly. It had cute little hearts floating around that stayed throughout the whole bath, though which was cute. Anyway, use the whole thing!
