What's In My Mailbox? Mascara, Lipgloss, Nail Polish & More!

Hey you! We made it to Friday! This week seemed to drag by for me. Anyway, I thought I would share with you some of my mail that I've received for PR consideration within the past few months. I got this idea from That Laurie Girl, and thought you would enjoy these mini-reviews!

Milani Baked Bronzers--These two limited edition shades are being sold only for a limited time, so your best bet is to order online. These matte bronzers come in two shades. The darker shade (Sunset) showed up great on me for contouring, and the lighter shade (Sienna) was excellent for a little color. If you have light skin, try Sienna. $8.99

 Younique 3-D Fiber Mascara--These are all over my Instagram, but when Daphne (see her blog here) contacted me to try them, I thought I'd give them a shot. I'm so glad I did!  Essentially there are two products: a transplanting gel is used after mascara, then the fibers are applied, and then set with the gel. Here are the wands up close:
The fibers are taken from green tea and are water-resistant, but wash away very easily at the end of the day. While you can apply the product for as many coats as you want, I preferred just one light coat:
This is at the end of the day, after removing from one eye!

I found it really easy to use and received many compliments on my lashes. If you have short lashes or just want lashes that last throughout the day, I highly suggest you give these a try. Get your own for $29 here.

Probelle Touchn'grow--I have very thin, peeling nails. It has been this way my entire life--my toes are the same way. I even stopped painting my nails for a couple of years to help it. Nope. Genetics. So I rely on products to help, and I've been for glad to have found these! Probelle is the restorative base nail polish that uses a two-step system to cure, grow and repair nails to a healthier state. The Touch N' Grow original formula cures and strengthens nails while the Touch N' Grow Plus maintains healthy nails with garlic and lime, which have been proven to prevent nails from discoloration and bacteria growth caused by prolonged nail polish wear. Probelle also acts as a durable base coat. I noticed a difference within a couple of days! $14 each for $26 for both.

Beyond the Zone Beach Head Products: Y'all know I love beachy hair, especially this time of year, so I was excited to receive these! First up is Seaside Smooth, an anti-frizz cream best for those with fine hair. The Coastal Cooler is a cooling shine mist. I loved this because it didn't make my hair greasy, like many shine sprays do. The Surf Shake is a traditional salt spray that is great for texturizing hair. I liked this after I heat styled my hair. They can be found at Sally Beauty stores and sell from $7.29-$8.99.

Amarte Wonder Cream--I've been using this grapefruit-extract packed cream to lighten my freckles and so far, I've seen a difference! I'll update after I finish the bottle.
Amarte Aqua Veil--A deeply hydrating formula that incorporates cucumber to optimize skin's ability to absorb and retain moisture. A visible magic-water veil is formed immediately upon application with resultant coolness and softness. This really saved my skin after being at the beach.

Fake Bake Beyond Bronze--On Monday's post, I had the most comments on what was on my legs in the photos for my tan. It was this! This is from their new line of products and I love it. Just be sure to close the cap tightly!

Whish Body Oil in Pomegranate--If you're looking for delicious-smelling body oils, try these! My skin felt soft and had a beautiful shine, thanks to sesame see oil, olive leaf and tea leaf, and pomegranate scent. $28, 6 scents and yes I will be buying the coconut!

Hum Killer Nails & Here Comes the Sun--An innovative vitamin line that is revolutionizing the supplement industry by creating products specifically for beauty and lifestyle. HUM’s products are gluten free, non-GMO, all natural, and I enjoyed trying them out! I want to try out more of their line! Available at select Sephora stores and Sephora.com

Jane Iredale Golden Shimmer--This face and body lotion comes out pink, but leaves a subtle shimmer where applied. It features apple extract to rejuvenate skin and help with moisture.
Jane Iredale Lip Fixation--I've been obsessed with this lip stain and gloss duo. The color was gorgeous and lasted. Just be sure to keep the gloss lid on tight!

 Claudio Riaz Instant Lash Mascara--This conditioning mascara lengthens lashes by creating tubes on them. I can't figure out how else to describe it, but I really loved the results.
Claudio Riaz Instant Pout--A creamy, natural color that adds shine to lips. Seen here on natural lips. Very pretty and I like wearing it as a "top coat."

Jane Iredale Powder Me SPF--If you've ever gotten the part in your hair burnt, you'll want this. But seriously, if you're looking for a dry version of sunscreen, you'll love this. SPF 30 and water-resistant for 40 minutes. Really loved keeping this in my bag for a lightweight powder sunscreen.

Doll Face Nail Polish in Vanity Bliss--This metallic peridot polish with golden shimmer is strong-smelling as it dries, but it dries very quickly. I enjoyed the quick drying time, color and the bottle design. $4.99
