April Birchbox!

I received my april birchbox today! As soon as I woke up I went right to the mailbox. I had to make sure no cars were coming because I didn't feel like giving anyone a heart attack (I just rolled out of bed). One quick thing about it if you don't know what it is, it's a 10 dollar subscription for 4 to 5 deluxe beauty samples. Ok what I got in this months birchbox was:

First one in the top row left side:
-Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel
It has natural fruit acids that dissolve the most tenacious dead cells for an immediately brighter, smoother complexion.
-Paper wild flower planter
You put the piece of paper in the ground and it grows wild flowers.
-Welda Wild Rose Soothing Facial Lotion
A silky lotion that that adds major hydration without feeling heavy. Softens and protects skin.
-Liv Grn eau de parfum
Made from biodegradable and sustainable ingredients, this lush scent is laced with jasmine and sandalwood.  Plus ten percent  of sales go directly to Global Green.
-Zoya nail polish "Dove"
A chic gray nail polish color.
-Zoya nail polish booklet
-Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment

I have to say being 100% honest, I wasn't too thrilled about this box. I'm kinda getting sick of all the skin care stuff they have been throwing in. I signed up for samples of makeup, not aging skin products lol. If the next box is like this I'm going to cancel my subscription. 10 dollars can go to this 4 dollar gas.
Anyways, hoped you liked this! :)

OH YEAH! Totally owning the Nars "Orgasm" blush

So my mall recently just opened up a Sephora in JC Pennys and OH MY FISH STICKS. As soon as I saw the sign, I DASHED to the store as fast as I could and my poor boyfriend lagged behind :/ lol. I've always wanted to go to a Sephora (I only have an Ulta) so I was super excited. They had SO much. I seriously was in heaven. I came there though for one reason. To get the famous nars orgasm blush that people love so much. 27 dollars for a little compact of blush -_- Oh well, it's gorgeous and I know I will use it everyday so I'm happy :) I also saw the Nars lip gloss in Turkish Delight. I'm deff coming back to get that. I havent tried it on yet BUT as soon as I will I'll let you know if I'm head over heels in love with it and if it's worth the splurge! :)

Holy grail of all pink nail polishs? I think so.

MAC just came out with there newest collection "Quite Cute." I thought this collection had some lovely pastel colors. There wasn't a lot to choose from but I did pick up the Mac nail polish in "Ice Cream Cake." I wanted a blush but I heard they were powdery and the colors didn't look right on me. So I only got the nail polish. I am SO happy with my purchase. I have been searching forever trying to find the perfect barbie pink nail polish and now...I HAVE FOUND IT. This color is SO gorgeous. I have a feeling I'll be wearing this for a long time. I thought it applied on smoothly and had great color on the first swipe. I used 3 coats because I wanted that extra pop. Anyways, if your looking for a perfect barbie pink color, I would highly recommend Ice Cream Cake :)

My latest obessesion

For my birthday (April 7) my boyfriend and I went to Ulta (Well it was more of a trap for him haha) and he got me the Urban Decay naked palette. Oh my peanut butter and jam. This is the BEST thing EVER! The colors are absolutely beautiful! It's like the perfect brown/light shades for a perfect look. The colors are also so pigmented which I absolutely love. I got this last week and I have sued it everyday. When I first got it I couldn't even put it down. It's 48 dollars but I got it on sale for 40 dollars which is such a steal. I highly highly HIGHLY recommend this. Even if you don't like spending 50 dollars on eyeshadows, believe me, this is worth it. Once I experiment with it some I will definitely do some tutorials!
