October 2014 GLOSSYBOX Review and Pictures

Wow, October's GLOSSYBOX is stellar! It's just the perfect mix of samples- hair care, nails, skin care, makeup, fragrance- this month's box has got it all! Here's what's inside:
Sesha Skin Therapy Botanical Hydro Mask
Vince Camuto Amore Eau de Parfum
Proganix Volume Root Boost Finish + Body Builder
Nails Inc. Matte Topcoat 
Tarte LipSurgence Power Pigment 

The Tarte LipSurgence pencil, Nails Inc. Topcoat, and Proganix spray are all full size, the Vince Camuto fragrance is an adorable deluxe mini, and there is one Sesha Skin mask. A very generous box! I can't wait to try out the mask and I've already tried out the Tarte lip product.. It's lovely! 
Here's a closer look at the color:
And how sweet is the little Amore perfume? 
What do you think of the October GLOSSYBOX?

EOS & Rachel Roy Limited Edition Lip Balm Sphere Collection

Now that the weather is turning cooler, I'm missing Summer already! Thankfully, a little sliver of Summer is back with these awesome new EOS Lip Balm Spheres. EOS has teamed up with acclaimed fashion designer Rachel Roy (known for dressing Michelle Obama, Jennifer Garner, Tyra Banks, Penelope Cruz, and more..) to bring us these tropical and sunny colors and flavors. Rachel curated the new Spheres, which all come embossed with her iconic "wing" design. They are available in a set of three that includes Indian Summer (Orange Blossom), St. Barth's Sunrise (Pink Grapefruit) and Aloha Hawaii (Strawberry Kiwi), plus stand alone flavor Barbados Heat (Wildberry) that is sold individually. I love EOS spheres, does anyone else have a huge collection of them or is it just me? :) They're so cheerful and cute, and plus they work so wonderfully. Very moisturizing and never sticky. They're all great but I think my favorite flavor out of this set is the St. Barth's Sunrise. I love the refreshing Pink Grapefruit scent and flavor.  The price point is great, too. The three pack retails for 9.99 while the Barbados Heat Sphere sells individually for 3.49. All four new flavors are pictured together above. You can find these at Target or but act fast because these limited edition goodies will be gone as quick as Summer was!! :)

Zoya Savita Matte Velvet Nail Polish Swatch and Review

Hi Everyone! I'm back after a bit of a hiatus and I have a stunning polish to show you today. Zoya recently re-released their popular and coveted Matte Velvet collection- a gorgeous range of deep jewel tones complemented by a rich and dimensional grey and black. I think what sets the Matte Velvets apart from other matte polishes is their beautiful depth. So much rich sparkle.. And that gorgeous velvet finish! I put on Savita, a lush purple, to show you today:
The color is stunning! The application is a dream.. Opaque in two coats and very fast drying. They wear quite well, too. I'm on day three with no chips or wear. I can't wait to put on the rest, but I don't have the heart to take this beauty off! The Matte Velvet collection is so perfect for the Fall and Winter! What do you think?
