I was sent this sample pack from a very nice person to try out. I have never heard of Perfectly Posh, but what I have been able to dig up it's a program where people can buy a kit and then have parties to sell the products. Kind of like Jamberry or Avon but sassier!
First up, I have a cleanser and moisturizer duo. The They are both from the "Look Natural" line. Best Face Forever is an exfoliating face wash that has sugar based microbeads (not the illegal ones), grapefruit and peppermint. You can pick up a 4oz bottle for $21. Next is Night & Day moisturizer which is made with lavender and olive oil as well as aloe vera. This is also $21 for a 4oz bottle.
These were such small sample packs so I can't really judge how they work, but I can give some first impressions. I don't do any cleanser or treatments unless I can use it for at least 30 days. They both had a pleasant smell. I really liked the cleanser and the scruffy texture. The moisturizer was thick and creamy. I'm not sure if I would spend $21 on either because, like I said, I haven't had a chance to see how they really worked.
Next up is Cackle Spackle, a face mask. I actually hated this! I showed myself applying and wearing this on Snapchat and it literally burned my face about 10 seconds after applying it. My other followers said that they have tried it and loved it. It just wasn't for me. This mask is made of charcoal powder, volcanic ash, kaolin clay, and spearmint. I don't know if it was the spearmint that made my face burn or what. I have used the volcanic ash before and it does sting a little but maybe the combination of both did it? You can pick up a 2oz tube for $18.
Last is The "It" Girl hand cream. It smells fantastic! Like, I am in love with this! It is made of grapefruit, apricot and lily. While this features coconut oil, vitamin e and aloe vera, it does not leave a greasy feeling afterwards. It is thick and creamy and literally the best smell ever! This is $9 for a 3oz tube.

This is my first time using any products from GA-DE Cosmetics, so I was excited to see what they can do. When using a product for the first time, I always like to learn a little bit about the company and then get a really good feel for their products. I was sent a full set of products to create a full face look. GA-DE Cosmetics says to wear their brand is to, "feel beauty of every day life, to feel powerfully feminine and to live for the richest experience life has to offer". Yes! It goes along perfectly with my Make Me Pretty philosophy of using products that make YOU feel good about yourself.
First up, two lipsticks. One in a sultry red color and the other a nude. The Idylic Soft Satin lipstick comes in 12 different colors ranging from the nude above to a deep plum color. Each satiny lipstick is infused with lip care ingredients that include hyaluronic filling spheres to help smooth out those kissers.
When I first tried them on my wrist as a swatch, I loved …

Once again, I have teamed up with some brilliantly talented ladies and we are sooooo excited to bring you some end of the summer goodies!
I am only going to talk a little bit about my prize, but it's a surprise...prize! I have used soooo many fun products this summer and I thought that right before Fall, I give you one last hoorah at my summertime favorites! First up, something that will give you a summer glow all year round! This product is a must have for me! I am also throwing in some shades for your eyes, color for your nails and goodies for your face. Today I've joined up with 16 other beauty bloggers to do a fun blog hop GIVEAWAY! If you are unfamiliar what a blog hop is, it's pretty simple. Each lady in the hop is giving away something (beauty-related) on their own blog and you can click through from one blog to another, entering the giveaways as you go, until you end up back where you started -- right here at my blog. Once you do that…
Today, I am bringing back some oldies and some newbies from Pacifica. I really love this brand. In fact, one of my favorite highlighters is a Pacifica product. You can check it out here. I have had some really great products from Pacifica and I am glad to show you a couple more.
First, I have this awesome palette, Power of Love, from Pacifica. There are 10 different colors in this little flip top beauty. There is matte, satin and pearl finishes which makes it really nice to create a sweet multi-dimensional look. Each of the colors are silky smooth and stay that way throughout application. The colors are packed with pigment.
The shadows are infused with coconut to create a smooth and crease-less application. All of these are made without animal testing, animal ingredients, phthalates, talc, parabens, or petroleum. Another awesome thing is that Pacifica will donate a portion of their sales to support clean water! All packaging is recyclable and the printing is done…
