Quick Rainbow Honey Summer Mixtape Sneak Peak & 20% off!!

This is just going to be a quick and dirty sneak peak!! I came home the other day to a surprise package from indie favorite, Rainbow Honey!! At first, I was very confuzzled. I thought to myself “Self, did you break your no-buy on polish and get the kickass Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag??” Alas, I did not and had forgotten that many moons ago, I added myself to her blogger list in hopes of snagging sneak peaks like this that I get to share with you all!!

Memebox Nakedbox #15 + Latest Boxes + Coupons!!

Ahh, the world of Memebox! You can read a brief breakdown of Memeboxes and how they work over at my other post here. You can skip to the bottom of this post to find a HUGE list of boxes that you will get $3 off for using my affiliate link (good until June 30) as well as a few other coupons I know of!

I initially ordered this box and accidentally received Luckybox #5 in the mail. Memebox corrected their mistake and sent me this one (arrived at lightening speed I may add) and I am so happy with it. Nakedboxes are different than regular Memeboxes as their contents are fully exposed and there are no surprises! While some may not like that, I was excited because I wanted to try the products included badly 🙂 This box was $23, though after points and coupons, I paid $14.99

While this particular box is no longer available, Nakedbox 17, 19, 20, and 23 are (with the last 2 giving you an extra 5 meme points with your purchase!)

Here’s my precious right after I tore it open. Descriptions of the products is taken from Memebox

1) NUGANIC Customize Pore Control Essence (Full size 30 ml) -Pore control essence reduces the appearance of dilated pores. Use after a toner.  I am excited to use this! Now I need Meme to send me a toner and I’ll have a full Korean skin regime 🙂 

2) TONYMOLY BCDATION SPF 30 PA ++ – Pink Beige (7ml)- CC foundation that is carefully made with only the absolute components of BB and CC creams. This shade was a pretty good match for me. TONYMOLY is also such a well known Korean brand & I was super excited to try this CC. Not so sure about the ‘full coverage’ claim that Meme has on its website, but a big fan of SPF 30!

3) PERIPERA Peri Tint Mini Mandarin Juice (2.5ml) – Vivid, lightweight tint gives an orange-red bite that doubles as a lip and cheek stain. Use applicator to dab color to bare lips or cheeks. Apply more heavily for higher saturation of color, less for natural look. WOAH this baby is orange. Also, the packaging is so freaking cute. It does really stain too. The swatch on my hand, stayed all day! I shall conquer the Korean Lip eventually. 

4) Unnie-cream 75g Full-size – A light, unnie-cream moisturizer is infused with 9 essential oils. This powerful moisturizer promotes long-lasting hydration with hyaluronic acid by elastically trapping moisture. YAY, another moisturizer. I love this one too. It smells lovely & quickly absorbs into my skin. It’s also massive and little goes a long way. I’ve been using it on my body more than my face but assume during winter, this baby will be magic. 

5) CAOLION Mool Pool Deep Cleansing 75ml – Innovative cleansing formula dissolves dirt and makeup on your face at one step. Wet your face and gently massage until cleanser gets thick. Then wash off with warm water. I cannot wait to try this! I have been loving the Soap Berry cleanser from my last box so much that I keep forgetting to use this one, but I think tonight, I shall bust it out. It looks so awesome. 

Overall, I am really pleased with this box. I think Nakedboxes are a great way to introduce yourself to the world of Meme, especially if you’re nervous about taking the plunge blind :P. Now, let’s move onto new releases, hot deals, and some coupons for the month!!

Studio Gear Holiday Smokey Eye Palette

The lovely folks over at Studio Gear sent over their new Holiday Smokey Eye Palette for my to review! The palette retails for $40, but is currently on sale for only $25!! Keep reading to receive an additional discount just for you, my lovely readers 🙂


Adorable packaging & smokey eye guide for makeup newbies to follow along.

In Studio Gear’s own words “Be radiant for any occasion with this sultry, shimmery palette of dramatic shades – perfect for creating a classic smokey eye look with a hint of unexpected golden glimmer…With pure color, pigment rich formulations, you’ll be sure to smolder all night.” The palette itself is small, .42 oz and definitely travel friendly! It has 4 shadows and 1 blush, all which compliment each other well. I like the inclusion of a shimmery gold, it’s nice and will definitely be used with other looks.

I’ve always been interested in Studio Gear makeup. I see them at Ulta, but never know where to start. This palette is a good jumping off point for me. The four shades + blush are as follows *first swatch done without primer, second swatch with Urban Decay Shadow Primer Potion*

Frost – white shimmer with a well, frost, finish. Good for a highlighter. A bit chalky.
Platinum– a lovely soft silver. I think it looks better with primer, but also pretty nice on its own.

Glimmer – a nice gold that really wows with the help of a primer.
Coal – Primer wasn’t totally necessary to get this color true to pan, but it definitely helped even it out.

Snowy glow – a nice shimmery pink/coral blush. Use a light hand! Blends beautifully though. It’s picking up more red on my phone, but rest assured, it’s not so clown like in real life :P.
Swatches indoor, no flash.
Swatches outside, no flash, a bit overcast (weird Phoenix winter!)

I think the palette itself is nice. It’s not something that screams unique, but I think it’d make a nice gift for someone building up their collections. The colors themselves can work for a variety of skin tones, I’d love to see how the blush looks on someone with a darker complexion. The shades also need to build up a little, which is actually nice as you can go for a lighter smoky eye if full on seems a bit intimidating. Keep in mind, these colors are shimmery, not matte! I’m excited to play around with this a bit for holiday parties coming up.

Now where you can you buy it?? You can get it direct from Studio Gear or at Ulta. Visit http://studiogearcosmetics.com/shop/eye-make-up/holiday-smokey-eye-palette/ to buy it from them! I checked and Studio Gear is having some great Black Friday deals as well, I’m looking at a few of the sets or maybe a blush or two. They’re also doing Cyber Monday with 30% off complexion products! And because Studio Gear is awesome, they are offering y’all a 10% discount off your entire order!

Reader Discount Code: SGHOLIDAY. This code does not expire and is good towards 10% off your whole Studio Gear purchase!
