Miss Blanco Joyful Box - November 2016

Miss Blanco Joyful Box is one of the newer subscription boxes. You can see my review on my first box from last month here. October was the very first month that they had launched, so this is my second box.

Unfortunately, there is no customizing this box. So everyone pretty much gets the same thing, with a few variations here and there. This box retails for $38 Canadian, not including shipping or taxes. Novembers box was $49.89 for me in Ontario. A little more on the pricey side of subscription boxes. There is a promotion for Black Friday where you can get a 50% off discount on your first box, when using the promo code BFRIDAY50 at the checkout. Promo code is valid until November 28, 2016.

So let's get right in to November's box.

Topbox - November 2016

Ah, I'm a little upset. I wrote a pretty big post about Topbox for November, and somehow my post was deleted and replaced with another review. Even going in and trying to edit it, or post it and see if it somehow would switch back, didn't work. So here I am, re-writing this post.

Enough of the rant. Let's look at the Prive choices for November. Prive boxes are sets you can "wish" for, and either you will receive that specific kit, or a normal Topbox.

I would provide you all with some information about her company, and FIVE of you guys will get the chance to win a $40 (electronic) gift card, to shop on ... how exciting is that!? So stick around a little longer, find out some information about Cherish and the company, and then enter to win! It will be so easy!

Sephora - VIB Sale Haul!

If you are a frequent Sephora shopper, then you might just be a VIB, or VIB Rouge member. What this means is that you have spent at least $350 in a year (to be VIB) or over $999 in a year (to be a VIB rouge member). Sometimes Sephora has exclusive offers to these members which can be early product releases, first access to products, and twice a year included in their 20% off sales. They usually have them in the Spring and the Fall, which gives you the perfect reason to stock up on your favourite products, or purchase early Christmas gifts. I prefer the Fall sale just because there are many Holiday gift sets that are also released around the same time, which gives you the opportunity to try new products, or purchase something for someone on your list.

Here's a look at what I picked up during the recent VIB Sale!

Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick SPF 21

The Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick (with SPF 21) is 24-hour wear, highly pigmented, foundation stick that provides high coverage in a super-gliding, weightless texture for a matte finish.

I received this from ChickAdvisor about 6 weeks ago, so I have been wearing it pretty much every time I apply makeup. A blog post is not a part of their requirements, but I felt like sharing my experience with this foundation with my readers.

Ipsy - November 2016

My Ipsy glam bag came today, and I have to say, I'm very happy with it. Which is surprising because Ipsy is usually one of those subscription bags/boxes where I'm happy with some products, but never all of them.

The theme for the month of November is Rockstarlet, so lets take a look at everything I got!

Colourpop x Hello Kitty

If you're a fan of Colourpop and follow them online, then you would have seen that they recently announced a Hello Kitty collaboration, that was being released on November 1st!

TheFaceShop Haul!

If you've never heard of TheFaceShop, well... you're missing out! They are a company that sells Korean beauty products. Lots of skincare, and I mean LOTS, and they also have some makeup as well. When I was in the store I noticed some of the packaging said Fruits and Passion. From my research (from Google) I can see that they are owned by the company LG Household & Healthcare, who bought out Fruits and Passion and replaced many of the stores with TheFaceShop. There is seriously something there for everyone, of every age.

Sephora Favorites - Trending: Beauty's Most Coveted

As soon as I saw sneak peeks of this Sephora Favourites box, I KNEW I had to have it.

When it launched, I immediately made my purchase, and it came the next day. I love Sephora's shipping. And I love living close to their warehouse facility!

I received this Eden's Semilla Jojoba Oil about 2 months ago, and I really wanted to give it a good try before I posted my review.

October 2016 - Empties!

October went by so quickly! I feel like I say this every month! If you've been with me since the beginning, then you know that I love my empties posts! I like looking back at what I've used for the month, and I love reading other peoples reviews on items that they have completely finished! Enough rambling, let's get into the empties!
