Sephora August Play! Box...Elements of Beauty

Image
**Bought It**
I seriously love my Sephora boxes. They are always filled with awesomeness. very rarely do I get it filled with products that I already own. Maybe 1 out of the 5, but rare! Also, I have gotten 1, YES ONE, eyeliner in the last year. That was something I was getting monthly with my other sub bag. Kat Von D also happened to be the winner this month and I looooove myself some Kat! KAT VON D Lock It Concealer Creme #1 I am a huge fan of the Lock It Foundation! It's a full coverage foundation that I use during the winter months when my skin freaks out. This concealer is just awesome! It holds all the gross at bay for 24 hours. It brightens, color corrects and smooths. I've been using this on my tired eyes and my wild breakouts. This week has been a wild one at world, so my face hates me... to say the least!

**Press Samples**
Bohemian Dreams Collection from Julie G is here with a special edition wooden handle and some oh so awesome shades! There are 6 creme colors that are natural shades. I am absolutely in love with every single color and I can't wait to start rocking these come September 1st. September 1st is my Fall go date and dusty shades is all I'm rocking! Henna This is a beautiful plum brown color that is very close to the red pull in real henna. This color is gorgeous. The dusty, oh so close to brown, is attractive without being too, well brown.  Karma This beautiful sky blue color, has just a tinge of dust to it. I was a little worried about having smurf cuticles after removing this color, but I was happy to find out it didn't stain.  Two coats of each of these provided a nice smooth, full coverage. I really am loving this color combination, too!
Faith This color is a creamy, dusty watermelon pink. It leans perfectly in the middle of that dark dusty rose and fun waterme…

More Gorgeous Goodness from Sally Hansen Color Therapy

**Press Samples**
I have 3 new-to-me colors from the Color Therapy line from Sally Hansen.  I have been loving this Argan Oil infused line since I started using it. It definitely has a learning curve. To use this, you need to use thin coats and then dry completely before applying a thin top coat. Now, on to the pretty colors! Haute Springs Ok, this is the brilliant, true red everyone needs in their stash! A sassy red is always needed for that power nail and just for that extra sass you need in your life sometimes.  I didn't use a top coat with this color just to show that it still as shine, but it's missing that gel plump. Adding that top coat, adds that gel plump that makes your nails look so much better.  
Reflection Pool This color is awesome! It is a blue, purple duochrome with some shimmer thrown in! I loooove this color in the sun. I tried to grab the duo, but it was being a little tricky with my indoor lighting.  I used three thin coats of this color just because it is a…

Lancome Monsieur Big from Influenster

**Brought to you from Influenster**
Monsieur Big is the **newest** goodies from Lancome and I get to show you it here first!! Influenster gave me 3 products to try together. Mascara base, mascara and remover. Take a trip with me to see how it all worked out!  First up, the Cilas Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base. Lash primer isn't something that I use regularly. I'm not sure why since I pretty much prime everything else when I'm going for a night out.
As you can see in the video below, I applied several light coats to get maximum volume and length. I am not a fan of the brush shape, but I do love the formula. It is light and really does lengthen. I have super long lashes to begin with, these just exaggerate and enhance what I already have.  Followed up by the Bi-Facil double action eye makeup remover, all the remnants comes off easily. A little goes a long way with this product, so do not over saturate your cotton ball or you will have an oily mess all over your eye…
