Today I want to share with you some new beauty bits that I've collected over the last couple weeks and giveaway a July Birchbox to one reader! Stay tuned until the end of the post for the giveaway.


I took advantage of some good sales and deals and have come up with a whole mess of new items that I've been really excited about. I love trying new products, but a limited budget makes that hard sometimes. But, if you shop sales wisely you can find some good stuff!


First off, I've recently discovered a love for false eyelashes. I used to hate them because every time  I tried to apply them I would just poke myself in the eye and they'd fall off. But I recently wore a pair for a wedding I went to and it just made such a difference. I am currently loving Eylure lashes and this volume pack caught my eye at Target. 


Also at Target, this little Sonia Kashuk palette was sitting in the clearance bin waiting for me! I completely fell in love with this collection when I first saw it - I'm a huge boxing fan. I bought a couple other pieces, but wasn't sure about the palette so I passed on it initially. But, the price was too good to resist! The colors are really pigmented and the little "You are a knockout" message makes me so happy. Gotta love an inspirational eyeshadow palette!


I picked up a couple things from the Body Shop, one of them being this bronzer. I've heard so much about this particular bronzer - specifically that it's amazing for pale skin. I bought the lightest shade they had, shade 01. This is the first bronzer I've ever used that I don't have to be careful with, it's really light but also build-able. It's perfect for redheads with pale skin!


The second thing I got was this perfume spray in the British Rose scent. I can't even explain how much I ADORE this scent - it's not rose like in the traditional sense. It has citrus notes that mingle well with the floral scent and create a light and sophisticated scent. I own the shower gel too...worried that it won't be long before I own the whole collection! Someone stop me...


First of all, could this blush from Too Faced be any more adorable??? It looks like a little Polly Pocket, and the inside is pressed with a rabbit design. I was sold instantly. I got the shade How Deep Is Your Love? which does bring up awkward Calvin Harris refs, but let's ignore that. It's a lovely pastel pink flush on the cheeks 


I got this little set of Laura Mercier creme body washes at Nordstrom Rack (the beauty section sometimes has some real treasures). I've always wanted to try a Laura Mercier bath product, but they are so pricey. This way, I get to try out 4 scents and see which one might be worth investing in. They all smell amazing so far, looking forward to trying them.


NOW CLOSED - thanks to all who entered!

  1. Oooo I've heard really good things about that Body Shop Bronzer but have been skeptical if it actually would be pale enough for me! I'll have to try it out!
    I feel the same about false lashes too! They always end up falling off ha. I'm going to wedding at the end of August so maybe I should practise.
    I've been stuck in a bit of a makeup recently! But I've been really enjoying cream products while the weathers actually been nice in the UK!

    1. I've been using the bronzer for a week or so now and I have to say I really like it! It's not too heavy so you can choose to have it be light or to build it up. And makeup ruts are no fun! I think I'm just coming out of one haha. :)
