Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Product Review

Last week, I received an exclusive e-mail coupon from Ulta for a free deluxe sample size of the Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara! I was thrilled to try this product out ever since I had heard about it. I love the Benefit They’re Real mascara so I figured that the Roller Lash had to be just as good. I was wrong… It’s even better!!!

This mascara is amazing! It is pretty similar to the They’re Real mascara when it comes to length and volume. However, the formula is much lighter! The They’re Real is pretty heavy and works really well for a strong eye make-up look (like a smokey eye). Most of the time I go for a more natural look, and this mascara is great for that. It just makes my natural lashes stand out more. Another thing I LOVE about the Roller Lash is that it removes SO EASILY!!! I was shocked! They’re Real takes ages to work off my eyes, but the Roller Lash comes off just as easily as my eyeshadow does! I am thoroughly impressed with this product! Here is a photo of my eyeball! All I’m wearing in this photo is the Roller Lash mascara (so please ignore my disgusting dark under eyes).

I’m definitely in love with this mascara!

This product releases on February 27th! The full size will be $24, and I’m assuming the travel size will be about $10. I would definitely recommend that you all try this product!

Julep – February 2015 – The Afterglow Collection

Julep’s monthly boxes are always my favorite time of the month. I love getting all the goodies from them!

Julep is a beauty subscription box. For $24.99 a month (or $19.99 for a three-month pre-paid subscription), you’ll receive three full sized products, catered to your beauty profile.

Also, you can click here to receive your first box for 50% off with the code WOW!

The February collection was titled the Afterglow Collection, featuring 10 new polishes, a “special gift” polish from Jane Park, a new eye brightener, glow highlighting powder, a fan brush, and two new lipgloss shades.

Here’s what I got:

My total for this month was $56. The retail of everything I received is $270!!! The Maven pricing would have been $216. I think that makes $56 an absolute steal!

I love my box yet again. Julep just seems to take all my money these days!

Julep – January Maven 2015 – The Chrysalis Collection

Julep’s monthly boxes are always my favorite time of the month. I love getting all the goodies from them!

Julep is a beauty subscription box. For $24.99 a month (or $19.99 for a three-month pre-paid subscription), you’ll receive three full sized products, catered to your beauty profile.

Also, you can click here to receive your first box for 50% off with the code WOW!

The January collection was titled The Chrysalis Collection, featuring 9 new polishes, new Luxe Lip Treatments, two new eye glider shades, and two new Orbital eye shadows.

Here’s what I got:

I once again switched from my normal Boho Glam style profile to the January It Girl Profile which included:

  • Janae ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Margit ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Shelly ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)

As add-ons I received:

  • Casey ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Luna ($14/ $11.20 Maven Price)
  • Holographic Chevron Nail Decals ($3.99)
  • Metamorphic Top Coat in Tyra (freebie for all Mavens who took their box! – currently unavailable for purchase)
  • Glycolic Hand Scrub (freebie for taking three add-ons! – $23/ $18.40 Maven Price)
  • Baby box of Junior Mints!

Here are the polishes:

My total for this month was $41. The retail of everything I received would have been at east $100 (not 100% sure on the full retail value because there isn’t a listing for the Metamorphic topcoats yet!). Even the 20% Maven pricing would have made the box at least $80. That’s at least a 50% savings!

If you want a colorful box that you’ll be excited to get every month I would highly suggest checking Julep out!

Like Twice Freebie!

I recently found an awesome website called liketwice.com. This is a site where people can sell old, lightly used high end clothing products and accessories, and then customers can purchase them at up to 90% off! The great part about this site is that all you have to do is ship them your items! They handle the listing and picture taking. They list whatever they can sell and whatever can’t be listed is donated to charity.

When I signed up, I used a friend’s referral link to receive a $10 credit (which you will receive as well if you sign up under my referral link provided above and below). I also received a $20 credit for downloading the Twice app for iPhones! Then I was ready to do some shopping.

I was looking into getting myself a new handbag. I had been using the same one since about March, and definitely needed a change. I found this Armani Exchange black satchel and fell in love!

Twice1

The estimated  retail of this purse (according to Twice) was $68. Twice had listed the purse for $27.95. Shipping was $4.95. I was able to get my hands on a 50% off code which took $13.97 off of the purse. I used my credit from joining and downloading the app to make my final purchase!

I saved at least $68 and got this purse absolutely FREE… YES FREE!!!

When I received it in the mail I was ecstatic. The bag is exactly as shown and described in the listing. I’m very happy with my purchase and love my handbag!
