Disney Ariel Collection for Sephora HAUL.

I wouldn't be a Disney lover is I didn't stalk Sephora's website for the Ariel collection. This collection is not set to be in stores until August was released online last week. When I saw the tweet from Sephora early last Tuesday I immediately retweeted and got on the site to order the two things I wanted the most. I ordered the Storylook Eyeshadow Palette Vol 3 and the compact mirror.  In probably the fastest shipping I've had with Sephora, Thursday afternoon my package was there.
Can I just say, I have both the palette and mirror from the Cinderella and Jasmine collections, and this one, in my opinion, is the most beautiful of the three. There is this sheen of green and blue that reflects off the packaging that really can't be captured, at least not on my little camera.
The mirror from these collections is always a must for me. The quality is amazing on them. They have a nice heavy feel, they have a great piece to have. They always cost around $20, and I feel these are definitely worth the price.
This is the detail that I love the most. Its that small touch each mirror from the collections have that makes me need to get the mirror every time.

A closer look at the front of the palette. The picture doesn't do it justice.
I love that with these collections, they put so much detail into the packaging. This is the names of the cover of the outside box the palette was in.
I would highly recommend both the palette and the mirror form this collection. If you can get your hands on them, don't let them go. For me these are collectors items, which is why its go hard for me to actually get use out of them. They are just so pretty I don't use them very often. It might be a while before I even let myself swatch these. I will just enjoy their beauty for now. If they are anything like the past palettes I know they will be great. They seem to keep improving the quality and pigmentation of these shadows with ever collection. I can't wait to see which princess the next collection will focus on. Hopefully Bell!
Along with the 3 samples you get from ordering from Sephora.com I had a promo code to receive this chevron bag filled with 14 other skin care samples.

Ipsy GlamBag - July 2013

Seriously a really pretty, juicy watermelon color I think is great for the summer. To me, defiantly too much pink to be called coral.  

Annoyingly couldn't rotate this picture. I've tried sea salt sprays before and they seem to always dry out my hair. Hopefully since this one claims to be good for your hair because it has soy in it, I'll give it a go.  
This is good stuff. I tried it out without water. It was a bit harsh but I like that. I like feeling like all the dead skin is being taken off my face.
  Once again, Ipsy for the win. All great products for the summer. Even the bag is a nice waterproof, perfect for the beach or pool clear pink bag. Can't wait to try out the Coola tinted sunscreen, hopefully the color works well on me. I have a non tinted sample that I received from Birchbox that works really nicely.  
Out of all the beauty subscriptions I've tried I would 100% recommend IPSY. If you would like to check them out or subscribe you can CLICK HERE to use my referral link, or go to ipsy.com

This is my second BOXYCHARM box, and I must say, it only OK. All good products, but I have a few of these already. All the products in this months box are useful, good quality and obviously full sized, a great box, but I have similar products in my collection to all of these. 
Not sure what color eyes this is designed for. Hopefully brown.

This brush seems real interesting.

This is one thing I don't have and I can't wait to try it out. My hair can always use a little help in the anti-frizz department.
  As you can tell I didn't really swatch these. Like I said I have a lot of these already in my collection so I plan on using some of these for giveaways, swaps or just giving them to my cousin. The lip gloss is for sure going to her. Since she is darker than me, I see it working well with her skin tone. I have the gloss in another shade and love it. I know she will too.

    Le Blush Creme De Chanel - Chanel Cream Blush

    Now that it's officially summer, I wanted to try out some cream blushes. In my collection I only have 2 cream blushes. One from MAC and a cheek stain stick from Tarte.
    When I saw images or the Chanel cream blushes going around instagram, I went on the hunt. I called Macy's, Nordstrom and Saks. Macy's was the first to get them. So on my lunch break I went over to Macy's and picked up #66 Fantastic and #62 Presage. Then the following weekend at Saks The BF was getting me the Chanel Ombres Fleuries Delicatesse quad and I convinced him to get me #61 Destiny.
    These blushes are so beautiful. They are bendable and look so nice on the skin. I really don't even want any other brand of cream blushes anymore.
    #62 Presage
    #66 Fantastic
    #61 Destiny
    Right now my favorite way to apply these blushes is with the ELF small stipple brush. It gives you a nice natural application so you don't look like a clown.
    There are 6 blushes total in the collection. The one I'm on the hunt for that seems to be out of stock at every store is #65 Affinite.
     I absolutely love these blushes. Hopefully I can get my hands on #65 to complete my collection.
