Hautelook - The Balm Haul

Hello guys! I wanted to share with you all my haul from Hautelook! They were having a sale on The Balm that I could not resist! Luckily, there was nothing sold out yet when I took a look. If you guys do not know what Hautelook is, click HERE to sign up (it's free). It is basically a online store where they sell anything from cosmetics, clothing, home decor, kids clothing etc. Pretty much anything you would find at a department store (Nordstrom) who are the creators of this. Every day at 8AM Pacific Time, they add new brands and different sales. Usually they have their products for 50-80% off retail price! So when I saw this brand was going to be featured, I had to pick up some things! Here is what I got
Down Boy Blush
Frat Boy Blush
Nude Tude Eyeshadow
I was so excited to receive this package!! Especially because Hautelook takes FOREVER to ship their products! I love the packaging for this brand, it is so cute! Nothing from what I have seen before. They even threw in some chocolate! YUM! Also, I am not sure when The Balm will be on Hutelook again, but if you want to browse their products, check out their direct website HERE. They are really famous for their Nude Tude eyeshadow pallet which is why I decided to pick it up, along with their blushes! Cannot wait to try out! Thank you for reading! Xxo, Dalia

OPI Liquid Sand Review

Hello guys! I wanted to share my love for this new OPI polish I received in my Glossybox last month! It is called Liquid Sand and I am wearing the color Can't let go. I cannot believe how much I love this nail polish, the formula is AMAZING! At first when I read the description of this, I was not that impressed because of the concept, I mean who wants nails to look like they have sand all over?! Or maybe that was just me, but as soon as I tried it on, I could not believe how well they pulled it off! It is the best darn nail polish that I have ever owned, and not only that, it lasts a very long time as well! Mine lasted for over a week! Very impressed with that and just the overall look it gives my nails. The color is also amazing, a nice purple, not too dark and not too light, just perfect. Not to mention the color I received also has chunks of glitter, awesome! You are not supposed to wear a topcoat on this, it is a very matte finish (which I love) and surprisingly it is not a hassle to take off! If I could wear this all the time I would! This is part of the Mariah Carey line by OPI and there are 3 other shades in their collection. Click HERE and click on "Nail Color" - Mariah Carey and you will be able to see the rest of the colors! Hope you all enjoyed! Thank you for reading! XXo, Dalia

February Ipsy Bag

Hi guys! I wanted to share with you all my February Ipsy subscription bag. I received this a couple of weeks ago but I am just getting a chance to post it up. This is a monthly beauty subscription for $10 a month. Usually in a bag you will see one full sized product and the rest are deluxe samples. I do like this service, and for only $10 a month I don't see why I would stop getting these subscriptions. I love these kind of subscriptions because I get to try out different makeup brands without splurging on the full sized products which saves me a lot of money. Check out more info on their service HERE. This is what I received for this month
Pixi - Flawless and Poreless Primer
Pop Beauty Mascara
Mica Beauty Gel Liner
Coastal Scents Eyeshadow Quad
Lash Cards used for a cleaner mascara application
That is what I got in my Ipsy bag this month! Overall, I get a lot of good use from all of these products. Who doesn't love face primers, eyeshadows, eye liners and mascaras right? I have never tried any of these brands so I am definitely excited for that! I always hear beauty gurus rave about a lot of these make up brands that I received. Pixi is a brand that I've always wanted to try but i always seem to pass it up at Target due to the price (pretty expensive) so I am glad I received something from their line! Overall, I am content with my bag and I look forward to more Ipsy bags! Thank you for reading!

February Wittlebee Kid Clothing Club Review

Hi guys! I wanted to share with you all my review on Wittlebee. This is a great subscription for infants and kids. I love the idea because as a full-time working mother, it is not as easy to go out and find clothing for your little one at stores. Although I do that, I do not have to worry as much because of online subscriptions like this. I just love shopping online, it is easier for me and I get to spend more time bonding with my baby than hassling to find things at stores. Anyway, you can find their website HERE where it explains a lot more of their company. This costs $39.99 monthly and they send you six pieces of clothing each month based on the profile you fill out on their website. they ask you the size your little one wears, the colors you prefer, and what specific types of clothing you usually dress them in. I picked dresses, skirts and leggings / pants an this is what I received.
Unlike the other subscription boxes, this box does not have prices that each of these items retail for, but I did look up some brands that I revived and their clothing retails forom $20-$40 each item. Some brands that I received are Tea and RabbitMoon. I wish I received more dresses and less shirts but regardless I still think this box is worth it. Since the box is $40, I am paying $6.66 for each piece of clothing. Not too shabby! I hope you found this post helpful in some way! Thank you for reading!! Xxo, Dalia

Flower Beauty Haul / Mini Review

Hi guys! I am back with a haul / review on the new Drew Barrymore make up line called Flower Beauty! You can only find this line at select Walmart stores. If you go to Flower Beauty you can find their full collection along with what select Walmart stores near you carry the collection! I only picked up a couple of things, here is what I got...
Ready, Set, Glow blush / bronzer duo in shimmering goddess. The name is deceiving, it is not shimmery at all. Both colors are super matte and super pigmented.  You don't need very much, therefore you need to be careful when applying this product. Other than that, these colors are really nice. I use the bronze color to contour my face and I put a dab of the blush on the apples of my cheeks. Retails for $9.98
Kiss Stick High-Shine Lip Color in LS11 - Morning Glory This is a great lipstick applied lightly. I find that when I apply a lot, it sinks into my lines and does not look appealing, but when I just dab it on it looks good. I own better lipsticks so I probably would not repurchase.
Kiss Stick Velvet Lip Color in LS1 - Set Me Freesia I do like this lip product, I like the velvet feel it leaves on my lips. Its more of a matte finish and I do not have a problem with this formula setting into my lip lines. Would repurchase.
Lip Service Lip Butter in LB9 I do not have a problem with this product, it is a lip butter so it has a great feel on the lips. Hydrates them well and adds a great pigmentation of color. These are very comparable to the Revlon Lip Butters as far as color pay off, but it lacks the rich and creamyness feel that Revlon's lip butter gives me. I'd rather spend my money on Revlon. This is not a horrible product, again, it is just not as good as what I've tried. All Lip Products retail for $6.98 Swatches are (from left to right) Morning Glory, Set Me Freesia and LB9 lip butter.
Skinognito Stick Foundation I love this foundation! Not as much as my True Match Lumi from Lo'real, but it is still a great foundation. It lasts all day and doesn't make me oily. Does not feel too cakey and surprisingly I got a color that matched me perfectly. Usually, when it comes to drugstore foundations I never pick the right shade the first time. I do find that I need to wear a foundation primer before so I won't have a problem with it wearing off. Love the packaging too, I just apply it directly to my face and blend! Retails for $9.98
Hope you guys enjoyed this post! Overall, the products I tried were worth the money for me. I love the packaging and the formula is pretty good for being drugstore. I will probably go back and try some of the rest of the products in their line. I'm really eying the loose powder! Thanks for reading!! Xxo, Dalia
