Product Review: Makeup Box

The big trend now seems to be these “box of the month” clubs where you can get makeup, accessories, food, etc. While they are great, a lot of times you just get whatever they are sending that month which means you might get makeup colors you’d never consider using or other items that you are just not interested in at all.  That is unless you sign up at  When you sign up you take a “style quiz” and rate items based on if you like it, love it, or dislike it.  You’ll get a mixture of items that you like and love but not items that you’ve ranked as dislike.  Each box comes with full-sized premium makeup. (Or accessories or intimate products depending on which you choose – but I reviewed the makeup box.)

The style quiz is quick and easy based on makeup types (eye liner, nailpolish, blush, etc) colors (neutral, bright, etc) or types (matte, powder, etc) and you’ll get your personalized box delivered to your door.  I was super excited to get this box and really pleased with the results.  Everything in the box is something that I will surely enjoy using.

I received the following in my box, the packing slip gives you all the details on what you’ve received in case you want to buy more once you’re done with the ones in your box. It also lists the retail prices as well (mine varied from $10-$24)

29 Cosmetics Dew Lip Gloss French Oak
Rainbow Honey Nail Lacquer Wistful
Girlactik Beauty Eye Glaze Glamour
Whipe Hand Cosmetics Cheek Flash Beachhouse
Skiin Skiin Instant Skin Tightener & Line Filler Sample

I am very impressed with the box and love that it is customized to items that I like and will definitely be using!  Boxes retail for $40 for a one-time purchase or $36 for a monthly subscriptions.  Subscribers will received monthly personalized boxes and can cancel or skip at any time.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Book Review: My Little Pony: Pony Tales Vol 1

ponyPony Tales Volume 1 contains six different graphic stories about the My Little Ponies.  I’m really not sure why I continue try and read these – for 2 reasons.  A) Graphic Novels always come up too tiny to read the text on my nook. B) I can not get over how the re-vamp of the ponies has completely RUINED them from the ponies that were around when I was a kid.  Those were adorable. These are weird looking and have huge eyes.

Despite the fact that I hate how the ponies look, the stories are always fun (even if I do need to magnify each page and it takes me a bit longer to read than it should) There is always a lesson taught in the stories and they are usually full of action, drama and adventure and are a great way to get girls into the graphic novel genre that they otherwise might not be interested in checking out.
