Happy Birthday From Sephora!

Sephora has released their highly anticipated FREE 2016 birthday gifts. This has thrilled some Beauty Insiders, but has disappointed all many VIB Rouge members.

This year, they are offering two different two-piece sets. One gift is from Fresh Beauty and includes mini versions of their Soy Face Cleanser and Rose Face Mask. The other gift is from Marc Jacobs Beauty and includes a mini Le Marc Lip Creme in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and a mini Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer.

But cue the disappointment for VIB Rouge’s everywhere, because there is NO special Rouge birthday gift this year. No extra product. And yes, this has been confirmed by Sephora. I understand that these birthday gifts are FREE, but it’s kind of a giant slap in the face when you spend over $1000 a year to be apart of their elite level. Especially when you consider all of the other cuts they have recently made to the program (don’t even get me started on how every “exclusive gift” is available to VIB’s).

It’s always great having a birthday at the end of the year and getting to pick up the gift first!! So what did I pick?! Duh. Marc Jacobs. I can not pass on lipstick … ever. And I looooooove MJ’s highliners. I already have this color, but a back up is always a bonus!!

Which gift are you hoping to grab on your birthday?!?!

US Obsessions

So I’m Canadian. And all shopaholic Canadians know that shopping in the United States means BIG deals. OK.  Maybe not AS amazing right now, given the current dollar situation. But it’s still pretty damn good even when you take the exchange into consideration. Last summer, however, felt like robbery. Our dollar was good, really, really good, and prices were cheap, really, really cheap.

This summer, I had to take it easy on my spending during all of our roadtrips to Montana. Sometimes, even with exchange, you can save money. But it’s important to pay attention and do the calculations quickly to make sure it isn’t smarter to just buy it at home.

Two things I can’t resist buying?? Lip Balm and Gum. Yep. Gum and Lip Balm. Why?! Because the US gets so many cool foods and drinks and limited edition cosmetics that we just don’t get at home.

Every time I go, I find new and glorious beauties. Last year, I fell in love with the Stride Sour Patch Kids line of chewing gum. The year before, Extra Desserts Gum won my tastebuds. This year I screamed with delight when I found the Sour Patch Watermelon Gum. Omg, talk about a taste-gasm.

image
image

I’m always way over the top and insist on buying multiple packs to last me through the year. Plus they are so fun to give to my friends. I love that they are sugar free, but totally kick sweet cravings. I’m not lying when I say I have a box (a recycled sephora gift box) filled with fun American gum flavors. Is that weird?!

My other favorite, Lip Balm. A true addiction. Why does the US get all the cool limited edition lines?! Canadians can find them but we have to order them online and spend a small fortune. So I stock up. Why not?! They make great “Happy Day” gifts. “Here have a pack of gum and a Chapstick just because you’re so fucking adorable“. Basically.

image
image

My most recent additions:
• Vaseline Creme Brulee
• EOS Lemon Drop SPF 15
• Chapstick MixStix in Strawberry Banana Smoothie & Raspberry Lemon Sorbet*
• Blistex Orange Mango Blast SPF 15
• Chapstick Tropical Paradise Collection in Mango Sunrise
• Chapstick Tropical Paradise Collection in Aloha Coconut
• Chapstick Cupcake Creations Collection in Cake Batter
• Vaseline Rosy Lips

The best things about stocking up on balms is that I’m fully prepared for the dry winter months!! I swear I searched for the Rosy Lips for over a year before I finally tracked it down (and in stock) at Target in Kalispell, MT. Nothing beats Vaseline when your lips are hella chapped. Adding yummy scents like Creme Brulee, or hints of color like Rosy Lips, just makes Vaseline feel like a legit lip treatment. Compared to the days of digging in the entire Vaseline tub, and getting it all over your hands, just for some lip relief.

Chapstick has really stepped up their game. Long gone are the days of Cherry Chapstick. Their new flavors are amazing. I’m loving the LE collections! And they are only $1 USD. ONE DOLLAR?!?!?!? Shut up. The MixStix are so yummy and I love having the option to wear the balms alone or mix them together for a different experience.

Do you have any products that you stock up on when sales are good?! Do you have an obsession?!!

* I have since found the Chapstick MixStix balms in Canada at Shopper’s Drug Mart. I picked up the Carmel Apple one to complete my collection! ♡

Epic Rewards

Sephora and their ability to get inside my pockets!!! They are once again offering some AH-MAZE-ING rewards!! And perfectly timed to be released right after their Beauty Insider Appreciation Week. Some more temptation. At 4x the points for Rouge members, a mere $250 CAD spent, can mean a free 1000 point Epic Reward!!

That being said, these are online only. Meaning you need to make a purchase to redeem them. And may have to pay for shipping if you aren’t a Rouge or don’t spend over the amount to qualify for free shipping.

Hopefully, the release will not be nearly as insane as their Extrodinary Rewards that were released a few months ago. The release date has been announced (August 10th), so it isn’t a guessing game like last time. The “sneak peek” states that these are in extremely limited quantities, however, there are more options than last time. They have also specifically stated which rewards are available to US Residents, Canadian Residents, or both.* Some of these are available to US Residents as well, the only one that is exclusive to Canadians is the 10 000 point reward from Too Faced. Also note that some rewards are available for VIB Rouge’s only!!

I feel like things might be a bit more organized this time around. Anybody interested in redeeming will be up for many hours, furiously refreshing their screens every few seconds. But they won’t have their hearts set on trying to get a reward that ends up not even being available to them based on shipping or import requirements. It is disappointing to see all of the amazing additional rewards that are available to American customers (like a trip to Paris with Lancome!!! A Tory Birch bag, wallet, and perfume!! Etc.), but I would prefer to know right away, what isn’t available to me.

Here are some simplified pictures with the rewards and details:

I better get my hands on one of these!! I’ll seriously be devastated if I miss out by mere seconds. I have my eye on the Smashbox and Becca. Although the Anastasia Beverly Hills reward looks so great, the colors are not for me!! Maybe if I do some serious damage this month for the sale, a 2000 reward might be within reach …
What do you have your eye on? Will you wait it out to get your hands on something?! ♡

Topbox is STILL Top Box

Topbox. The most amazing beauty subscription service. The best. My favorite. Phenomenal. Their customer service is always A+. Their products are high end. And they have wonderful little bonuses that you can take part in (like a “wishlist” for a Prive Topbox; a special brand exclusive box!!).

So who or what is Topbox? It’s a Canadian beauty subscription service that sends 4 personalized items to your mailbox. And it’s only $12 CAD!! That’s it! No shipping. No handling. No hidden fees (you just pay the GST/PST applicable in your province). You can chose to get your subscription sent in a printed tube that is adorable and totally reusable. Or an eco friendly organza bag. Every month I continue to be amazed by the high end samples I receive: Deborah Lippmann, Buxom, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Benefit, The Balm, Eyeko, Elizabeth Arden, … I could keep going, but you get my point.

For the last three months, Topbox has been pushing all of my happy buttons. It’s like my subscription keeps getting better! Here’s my summer Topbox breakdown!!

May Topbox

For May’s box, all subscribers had the option to add on a $10 Beauty Surprise. I opted in. You never know what you are going to get, it could be a product worth $15 CAD or one worth well over $100 CAD. My surprise this month came from Bobbi Brown. I found this so ironic because I had just had my first Bobbi Brown experience EVER, in April, at Nordstrom’s Beauty Trend Event. And it wasn’t a great first impression. I feel like I was gifted a do over!!

image
image
image

The Bobbi Brown box came complete with my choice of makeover at Bobbi Brown in Holt Renfrew, a coupon for a free mini Instant Long Wear Makeup Remover, and five mini BB products.

image

I’m very excited to have an opportunity for another makeover from Bobbi Brown. I would love the second chance to fall in love with a different, new to me, makeup brand. I also got a nice range of samples and minis. This will allow me to play my way and get a better feel for the products.

image

The products I received:

• Soothing Cleansing Oil
• Smokey Eye Mascara
• Hydrating Eye Cream
• High Shimmer Lip Gloss
• Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Sample Card (includes Black Ink and Steel Ink)

This box is currently being sold in the Topbox Shop for $27 CAD. So at $10 CAD for a beauty add on, I would say it was a great surprise!!

This was just my add on! I also got my regular monthly Topbox. I didn’t “wish” for any of the offered Prive boxes this month. I chose the regular Topbox with surprise contents.
image
The products I received:

The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Foam Aloe – The Face Shop has recently been brought to my attention. I have seen their products popping up and then I found a retail location in passing. So I’m beyond thrilled to have some products to try. The Face Shop is a South Korean based beauty company. They have a wide range of skin care (and makeup?) products available. I plan to visit the store soon to get a closer look!! About this product, from The Face Shop, “This cleanser will leave your skin supple and soft to the touch. Its formula is enriched with aloe and its soft foaming texture soothes irritated skin and provides the epidermis with intense hydration.”
The Face Shop Seaweeds Moisturizing Pack – The perfect follow up for the Aloe Cleanser! “This sleeping pack contains seaweed extract, providing vitality and moisture to tired and dry skin.” These products compliment each other so well. I’m thrilled to have them both. You get a much better feel for a brand and their products when you can try a few things from their line. #teamwork
Medusa’s Makeup Eyeshadow – This shadow is a mineral shadow. It is highly pigmented and glittery. Perfect for an intense eye on a big night out. I’m loving the smoky grey shade. It seems ipsy always sends me the champagne shades and Topbox sends me the smoky grey shades (see April’s Topbox). I’m starting to crave a little variety though!! I’m excited to have an eyeshadow to try from Medusa’s Makeup. I was extremely surprised (I’m a great way) with the Lipgloss I received in a past Topbox.
D:fi Reshapable Spray – This is a styling spray. Much like a flexible hairspray. You can use it on dry or wet hair to reshape or maintain style. It’s very versatile. Perfect for travel or the office … or your purse. Basically, anywhere that you are on the go and could need (or want) a style change.
image

All together now. So many great products to sample and try for May!! It’s hard to believe that June got even better

June Topbox

As if May’s Topbox wasn’t amazing enough, June came with a HUGE surprise bonus! I was 1 of 500 (very lucky) women who were chosen to try 3 FULL SIZE Vichy products for FREE. It appears to me that our Topbox personalized quiz answers might have been taken into consideration, as different women got different product lines. The product line I received, Idealia, fits my skin concerns exactly!! The products were sent out in collaboration with Topbox, Vichy, and Lou Lou Magazine. Click Here to read my in depth review and personal skin story on the Vichy Idealia line.
image
image

In addition to the (ah-MAZE-ing) BONUS, I still received my monthly Topbox. Again, I opted out of any Prive Topbox options.
image

The products I received:

Deborah Lippmann Luxurious Nail Color – This is the second Deborah Lippmann nail color that I have received (see April’s Topbox). The shade is different so I’m assuming that means it isn’t considered a repeat item. Not that I would complain anyways, I mean it’s a FULL size DL polish. I also received a coupon for a complimentary Smooth Operator Nail File from Holt Renfrew. Yes!!!
Paula’s Choice Clinical KP Treatment Cloths – I suffer from KP. And I hate it. Being fair, I feel the redness and bumps are always super obvious. If I get cold they can turn purple hued. This is a product that I didn’t know existed and am thrilled to have found (been sent). Unfortunately, I need to actually use these clothes long term to tell you if they work, but I can tell you that I felt a reduction in redness after only one use. Side note, if you also have KP, coconut oil works amazing at helping to clear it up. I’m starting a routine with these cloths, followed by slathering on some coconut oil.
Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation – I love Buxom. It’s one of my top five favorite brands. I’m thrilled to have this sample of foundation shades to try and find my perfect match. My only negative is that I received this sample for free from Sephora. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed in the sample size given that I pay for this subscription service.
Fruits & Passion Aloe Face Mask – How interesting that I received a Fruits & Passion Aloe Face Mask a month after I received The Face Shop products (The Face Shop locations replaced the Fruits & Passion locations). I also received a coupon for a face treatment FREE from Fruits & Passion. Except there are no longer Fruits & Passion locations in my province. I could order online, but it seems pointless to pay for shipping on such a small item. I don’t see myself using the coupon unless I surprise myself with a trip across eastern Canada. The Aloe mask is made to hydrate and refresh skin. It is a single use sheet mask. I haven’t used this mask yet as I intend to use it in Mexico, in August, on my sun drenched skin. What could be a better, travel friendly, soothing, DIY, face treatment?!!?

Another killer month. I’m starting to wonder what miracles Topbox has hidden up their tiny $12 sleeves …

July Topbox

For July, Topbox was offering (again) their $10 Beauty Surprise Add On. This time (for the first time ever) I chose not to partake. This was a budget based decision, not a preference. I have yet to see a bad beauty surprise. I’m not sure what the “surprises” were for July but I saw a few Instagram shots of a 4 pack of Marsk Mineral Eyeshadows and a Yaby Palette, I’m sooo jealous!!

I (once again) chose the Regular Topbox. I have yet to not like a single box. And I love the surprise!!

image

The products I received:

OFRA Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil – Yes!! Another OFRA product. And brows are definitely having their moment in the spotlight. Being a natural blonde, I was worried about how “universal” this product would actually be. However, how heavy you apply the pencil, determines the shade. Even applied with a very light hand, the color is still a bit darker than I’m used to. Not over the top darker, just a few shades darker. I’m excited to have a shade to make my brows big and bold when the mood strikes. Also, it’s full size!!
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat – Another full size item. Another GREAT item. Another reason to continue my love affair with Topbox. I don’t own this but I always see it at my nail salon. I love that it is fast dry. Perfect for my busy lifestyle. The formula adheres, through the color, to the base coat for a flawless durable finish.
St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Medium/Dark – St. Tropez is everybody’s favorite self tanning brand. I have already owed and tried this exact product. I loved it. And I love that I now have more. A perfect item for these summer months! This is a daily (gradual) self tanner. It not only gives you a bronzed look, but it also has super nourishing skin benefits.
Bare Minerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara – This mascara is “10-in-1”. It is volumizing, lengthening, thickening, separating, and long-wearing. It has an exclusive “ProTwist180 Wand” that is spiraled 180 degree. It curves around each lash to coat from ALL angles. The formula contains nourishing minerals and quinoa protein complex. I’m very excited to try this mascara as I love many other Bare Minerals products.

July’s Topbox might be my favorite one EVER. Each item was a 10/10 on the “fuck yes”, “impress me” scale. But honestly, it’s a tough call. It’s like they know me. Every box thrills me. Every item has been awesome.

If you are interested in subscribing to Topbox, comment and I’ll send you my referral link via invitation email!! Unfortunately for some of you, they only offer their subscribtion to Canadians at this time. But if you are a Non Canadian, you can just continue drooling over my reviews! ♡♡♡

Summer Steeper

David’s Tea is killing 2015. They just keep pumping out great deal, after great deal. And of course, I get suckered right into making a purchase.

image

The first of three amazing deals, the Summer Steeper Club. To join, you need to be a member of David’s Tea loyalty program, Frequent Steeper. It’s totally free to sign up, if you haven’t yet you can do so in store or online. Next, you need to purchase a pitcher, Steeper, or Steeper kit. That’s it! You’re now automatically enrolled in the Summer Steeper Club and will get 15% off all loose leaf tea until August 25th! How awesome is that? Plus, they will also send you exclusive iced tea recipes and insider updates.

image

The second AMAZING deal that David’s Tea is offering, is your choice of a 3-tea sampler FREE with all in store purchases of $35 CAD or more!! And this offer can be combined with the previous offer! I spent my $35 CAD on “The Perfect Pitcher” and some loose leaf tea (that I got at 15% off since I was now apart of the club). The 3-tea samplers retail for $19 CAD and are only free with purchase until May 30th. I chose the “Iced Green Teas” for that caffeine pick-me-up. So awesome to get such a great FREE item with my purchase.

image

Not near a David’s Tea location? That’s okay!! Their third deal is for online purchases!! Until June 3rd, spend $75 CAD and get a free 100g bag of Yogi Berry tea. Again, this offer can be combined with the first offer. So buy yourself a cute Steeper to help hit that $75 CAD minimum. Don’t forget to enter code “FREEYOGI” at checkout!!

I’m loving these deals! I will definitely be taking advantage of the Summer Steeper Program!! It’s picture, pitcher perfect.
