Initially when I checked the website out to find out the price for this product back in March it didn’t appear on the site. I wasn’t very happy about that because I have this thing where I usually dislike them giving us products that we cannot actually purchase. What’s the point of giving us something we like, but can never repurchase, right? And for that matter, other people can’t purchase which I’m sure companies would want when we blog about their products.

Anyway, I just checked it today and it seems that they’re planning to actually add it soon! I think it’s a great product for them to sell because it’s a pretty affordable palette to buy and customize. The patterns they have coming out for the case seem to be real cute too! I think this is a nice size for us to have and bring around because I’m sure for a quick look most of us don’t use past 3 eyeshadows. It also comes with a mirror for convenience.

Yaby // Eyeshadow (Seashell – es192 & Azalea Petal – es133)

[[ Whether you want to make a dramatic statement or just add a veil of color to your eyes, the yaby eyeshadow refills are extremely easy to work with. Can be used wet or dry and the smooth texture allows blending with ease. All shadows are vegan friendly and the pans are reusable for mixing. ]]
Full Size: $3.34/each || Received: $6.68 ($3.34 x 2) *FULL SIZED*

I’m really happy that Glam Bag gives me more neutral controls because that means it’s actually colours I’ll use! Both of these colours look really nice so I’m excited to try them out! I’ve been wearing more eyeshadow lately too.

I’ve been using Avène’s mist for a while now so I’m curious to see what this one will be like. The reviews of it on ipsy look like it either works but smells weird or it just plain smells weird LOL! But a good addition to the bag since warmer weather is approaching.

At first I thought they gave us the same sample two months in a row. Turns out it came in the same packaging as the eyelash serum. I think a lot of people got thrown off by that.

Evolvh // UltraShine Moisture Shampoo & UltraShine Moisture Conditioner

[[ This shampoo has quickly earned the trust of top hairdressers and discerning clients, with many dubbing it the most moisturizing and repairing shampoo in the world. Designed to provide the optimum level of moisture, amino and fatty acids, and pH level for every hair type, the result is hair with greater strength and elasticity. Specialized amino acids rebuild damaged hair, gradually returning hair closer to its ideal composition. When you apply the conditioner it will feel as if it is vanishing. This is because it is being absorbed rather than just sitting on top of the hair. ]]

Glymm June 2012

My guess was wrong about Glymm just using the makeup bags just for May! In our June box we once again receive a makeup bag instead of the box. This month I got blue. I’m wondering what I’m supposed to do with the makeup bags though if they continue to use them. I don’t really have a need for a big amount of them. In an effort to be more green they also stopped providing a card to let us know about the products we receive. Instead, we receive one that’s the size of a business card encouraging us to go onto their website to find out more about the products for the month.

I’m feeling like I got ripped off this month, honestly. I’ll let you all see what I mean.

LA Fresh // Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover

[[ This acetone-free nail polish remover is packed with aloe, glycerin and vitamin E to moisturize and natural Rosemary Horsetail Extract to keep your nails strong. As the smell of natural Tuscan orange fills the air, you’ll be elated to know that this product is free of harmful chemicals and uses the least amount of water possible – also, no need to rinse. ]]
Full Size: 18 pads/$9.99 || Received: 2 pads/$1.11

It claims to be able to remove polish off of all 10 fingers with just one pad so I was interested in trying that out. I had a bit of chipping for my polish but it wasn’t anything too big. I wanted to test it out when there was still a lot of polish still left on my nails.

I was pleasantly surprised. It really was able to take off all the polish from my all my nails and it probably could’ve taken it off another 10 fingers even after! It had a nice orange smell which is great since I hate the smell the nail polish remover. With all the stuff they put into it my nails weren’t dried out like they usually are after I use normal nail polish remover! I think my nails were starting to be in bad condition since I changed colours every week and it began breaking a lot and peeling. Using this though my nails seemed to be fine after!


Clark’s Botanicals // Intense Radiance Mask

[[ This botanically-based formula will deliver an instantly brighter-looking complexion that’s visibly smoother and more luminous. It’s even suitable for problematic, combination and aging skin. ]]

It even works for the most sensitive skin types. ]]
Full Size: 45ml/$68.00 || Received: ?? doesn’t tell us amount. Guessing around 1.5ml or so.

Check out the full review here!

Never heard of any of these brands aside from LA Fresh. Seems kind of weird for including a polish remover when there’s no polish in this box. I feel like because they included so many samples that have such a small amount it really looks like I’m getting ripped off this box. Especially how last box I was saying how they really look like they were improving.
