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


  1. love seeing what you have been getting in the mail

  2. Thanks so much of your review of my Younique 3D Fiber Lashes!
    These other products look great, thanks for sharing :)

  3. So many awesome products! Those baked bronzers look gorgeous-- I'm going to have to see if I can find them anywhere before they're gone! The Younique lashes/mascara definitely seems to be all the rage lately! Love how it looks on your lashes!

  4. WOW that eyelash stuff sounds amazing! I feel like I'd mess it up somehow... I'm pretty good at that! Love that last nail polish too, so pretty! Happy Friday!

  5. I started using a fiber brush on my lashes recently too (cant think of the brand right now). But I love it. Perfect for date nights and special occasions.

  6. So many goodies! I may just have to try the lash products - thank you for the reviews, even your mini ones are fab xo

  7. I have the 3D fiber lash and I think it's amazing for nights out! I have to try out that salt spray. I loved the one that John Frieda made and after they discontinued it, I haven't been able to find a good replacement.

  8. Ok, wow. I love the idea of a powder sunscreen! That fiber mascara makes an amazing difference! And thanks for sharing the probelle products. I've been having the same issues with my nails so now I know what to try!

  9. I ordered the Milani Baked Blush in Sienna a while ago and really like the color for my fair skin. I want to try that fiber mascara now because your lashes look killer.


  10. An amazing range of products, love the natural effect of the mascara and the baked bronzer looks like a must have! Have a great start to the weekend hun!

  11. This is such a great idea for a post! its nice to see some lesser known products!

  12. Thanks for sharing. That mascara is seriously amazing!

  13. Oh my gosh so many wonderful products!! I've been wanting to try the HUM product line!!

  14. looks like some really great stuff chica !

  15. I really need some Milani in my life.....argh! Why can't I get them locally?!?!

  16. Seriously, TGIF :D The pink blush on u is beautiful!

  17. I definitely need to try that eyelash extender stuff...so cool!

  18. Absolutely love Whish products...that oil looks divine. PTR makes a powdered sunscreen in a brush form so the product is self-contained (and doesn't get everywhere) and is very portable - I throw it in my bag to dust on my face throughout the day and it doesn't interfere with makeup or anything but this jane irdele one looks like a nice more natural option if not as convenient.

  19. Love this post!

  22. Tons of products! I haven't seen either of those Milani bronzers at my local drugstores otherwise I would have picked one up. Those Younique Mascaras are pretty cool too! My cousin just got one and im tempted...

  23. I like the darker shade bronzer! The golden shimmer looks like it's worth a try! Thanks for sharing at these products!

  24. Great review! I've got to try the mascara!

  27. Oh wow that mascara sounds SO interesting! And the grapefruit fading cream. I keep putting on 30 spf to walk around and I keep getting color! My freckles are going to come out!

  28. I haven't tried the Milani bronzers I should soon though since I love their baked blushes a lot. The Younique mascara was a complete fail for my eyes. The fibers really made my eyes red and I find applying lashes is much less time consuming.
    Loved your mini reviews

  29. Wow looks like they're all amazing stuff! I think the mascara and the body oil are must-tries....thanks for the mini review!


  30. The Younique 3-D Fiber Mascara looks amazing!

  31. I'm gonna have to check out that beach line next time I pop into Sally's!

  32. Wow--lots of fab stuff here! I am looking forward to hearing your final conclusions about the Amarte cream. I'll bet it might be good for dark spots, too. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogpspot.com

  33. I have really thin nails too so that sounds great!

  34. The fiber lashes look awesome!!!


  35. I have the Younique fiber lash product and LOVE it! I normally only wear it for special occasions because I don't want it to run out, haha!

  36. You got some great things! I have to say, your pic of the Younique mascara is the first I've seen that makes me want to try the mascara. All other pics I've seen (yup, all over IG) makes the lashes look super spidery but yours looks natural and so long and fluttery. Thanks for sharing!

    What can I say? I have short, sparse and straight Asian lashes. LOL!

  38. I love this Jane Iredale powder! I actually could give that to my husband too! He keeps his hair very short and could use something non greasy for protection on his scalp! Great picks! susan

  39. I'm real interested in trying the vitamins now. Plus the powdered sunscreen looks like something I'd want to try as well! xo

  40. Body oil seems very unique. I must read more about it. Thank for posting this :-)

  41. Some interesting products especially the mascara!
