RocksBox Review!

IMG_4038

I have something a teensy bit different today for my blog! I was contacted by Rocksbox and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their subscription service for a few months. I happily agreed after realizing this is the same jewelry service Thataylaaa raved about awhile back. I know I’ve said this before, but she’s one of the few big vloggers I trust, and after browsing through their site for a bit, I was stoked to get my first box! Yes, I did receive this for free, but my thoughts and opinions are my own, as usual.

Shipping was very quick. I had my box two days after my tracking code was sent.

Rocksbox is a monthly jewelry subscription that costs $19 a month, but you get close to or over $200 worth in loaner jewelry. You can also send back the set you have for a new set at any time! Shipping is free both ways for the subscriber, and there is no committment. You can cancel at any point. In the box you get a shipping label, and the envelope it comes in is also the one you send everything back in! I thought that was pretty neat. Little things entertain me.

Each month that you are subscribed, you receive $10 in “shine spend” which allows you to potentially buy a favorite piece of yours and keep it forever! You go through a quiz, much like with Ipsy, in order to figure out which styles you love and don’t love so they can cater your jewelry to you.

So, how did my “stylist” do with mine? Awesome! It’s no secret that I love bold makeup and necklaces. When I opened up my box and saw that necklace, I legitimately gasped.

What was in my box?

Urban Gem Aubrey Necklace– This necklace retails at $80, and isn’t it so stunning? It’s everything I want in a statement necklace. Bold, yet dark and it’s very lightweight. I love this piece and may end up buying it for myself eventually.

Kendra Scott Earrings- These earrings are also some that I can see myself wearing often. I can’t wear super large and heavy earrings because that’s a disaster waiting to happen with two toddlers. I do love pretty earrings that aren’t studs from time to time. These retail at $65.

Jill Michael Delicate double chain bracelet- This is the one thing I’m kind of “meh” about. I’m not really into delicate jewelry. Have I mentioned before that I’m an all or nothing type of person? I’m either tacky or completely bland, there’s rarely an in between with me. This is a really pretty bracelet for anyone that does like more delicate styles though, and retails at $45.

Of course, if you sign up and you’re an insider, the prices to buy most pieces are dropped pretty significantly.

I think this would be a cute “treat yoself” type of subscription since it’s not makeup related, but is still relatively affordable. It would also be a cute gift to someone else!

All in all, I’m really happy with this so far. I’m excited to send a few pieces back and see what’s in store for me next!

If you’re interested in getting your first month with Rocksbox free, I do have a coupon code. Just enter lunafayebeautyxoxo to try this out for free, and you can cancel if it ends up not being for you!

What are your thoughts on subscriptions like this? I would love to hear about them!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days.

November Ipsy Bag

november ipsy glam bag

Hey beauties,

It’s obviously beauty subscription unbagging week. Also known as one of my favorite weeks of the month. I unbagged everything from my November Lip Monthly bag a few days ago, so today we’re going to take a peak into my November Ipsy bag.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy, they’re a beauty subscription that arrives monthly and costs $10 a month. They typically send out 4-5 deluxe sample sized items or full sized items. I’ve been subscribed to them for a little over 2 years now.

If you follow my blog, you probably already know that the past few months have been weird for me regarding Ipsy bags. Two months ago my bag was stolen out of my mailbox, and last month an item was missing. I’m happy to say that this month the curse is broken and everything arrived safe and sound. Good thing, because this month looks really promising!

First off, I’m dying over the bag. It’s my personal favorite bag so far, design wise. I love galaxy printed anything and everything. I’m a bit of a space junkie, which is something I don’t think I’ve mentioned often on here or anywhere.

Anyway, I received five items in my bag and this is what they were:

1. Benefit Gimme Brow (Sample Size) I was pretty happy to see this in my glam room. I’ve always been curious about it, but I don’t enjoy spending a ton of money on brow products because my brows just don’t respond well to many products. So, having a sample size will be nice! Gimme Brow is a cult favorite as it’s supposed to have little fibers in it that cling to your brow hairs, making them look more voluminous. Not gonna lie, that’s something I need. I do not have full brows, and I never have.

2. Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara (Deluxe Sample) It’s rare that I get two high end samples in Ipsy bags, so that in itself is pretty exciting. I have never personally tried this mascara, but with many mascaras I see a lot of either love or absolute loathe regarding it. I do love trying out new mascaras though! I will admit I have a lot of these little mini samples stashed away at the moment that I need to try out, so if you all want me to start reviewing these as I start running out of mascara (because I hate having a million tubes open, personally) then just let me know!

3. Inspr Beauty Angled Brush Honestly, I love getting brushes in my Ipsy bags. It means one less brush for me to but, and I have received some pretty awesome brushes from Ipsy! My elf brow angled brush has seen better days, and I was just thinking about how I needed a fresh one. Well, now I have one. I can’t wait to see if this is as great as my elf angled brush!

4. LeAnni Ecco Go Away Gloomy Day Serum I have neither received anything from this brand, nor have I even heard of them before this month’s bag. However, I love facial serums. I have a really dry skin type, and this time of the year I go through so many moisturizers and serums. I mean, if this serum will cheer me up I will totally try it out. This was a pretty gracious sample size for a serum, and will probably last awhile.

5. Beaute Basics Sahara Gold Chubby Eye Pencil This product is reminiscent of my favorite Nyx jumbo pencils. I love chubby eye pencils because they work great alone, as a primer, or in the water line. This gold shade is really pretty, and perfect for this time of the year with the holiday season approaching.

Overall thoughts: I am pleasantly surprised with this bag. I feel that Ipsy has upped their game, and I’m sure their new survey and quiz system has something to do with that. I feel like I get less things that go completely unused to more things that I will at least try. I felt there was a good mix this month with high end samples, seasonal trending shades, and a tool that I will actually use regularly.

If there is anything in this bag that you would want to see a separate review on, please let me know! Also, tell me about what you got in your bag if you want!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you all enjoyed this short and sweet little unbagging!

My First OOTD Post

IMG_1206(1)

Okay, so today’s post is going to be a bit different from my usual posts. I have been wanting to do fashion and outfit posts for so long. However, I struggle so much with my own body image. I can feel cute all day long, but seeing myself on camera or putting my body out there for others to see makes me…nervous, to say the least. I do follow so many beautiful and body positive bloggers, and they have inspired me a lot over time to try and be more positive about myself.

So, here I am, posting my first official outfit of the day. I tried to film it, but hated it, so baby steps I guess are needed. If this is something that you want to see more of on my blog, please let me know.

IMG_1204

This outfit was really simple, yet very cute, in my opinion. The Guns n Roses tank is from Kohl’s, and the fluffy tulle skirt is actually from Rue 21. The hat is also from Rue 21. The belt came from Target, and is a few seasons old.

Ah, but how do I nurse in an outfit like this? Simple! I have a thin cami on underneath, and when Piper needs to nurse, I just lift up the top tank and lift down my cami. The two shirt method has been my go to way to wear cute outfits while breastfeeding for over 3 years now, since Harmony was born.

IMG_1207(1)

Makeup details are relatively simple as well. On my eyes is the Too Faced Natural Matte palette. Blush is “essex” by Kat Von D, and my highlight is “Spoon” by Colourpop. Lipstick is “Unicorn Blood” by Jeffree Star Cosmetics.

Photos were taken in my backyard πŸ™‚ Pretty nifty, huh?

I hope you all enjoyed this really quick post! As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re all having lovely days!

July Favorites!

Hey lovelies,

It’s the beginning of a new month, which means that I get to talk about all the things I’ve been loving on and around my face for the past month! Most of what I talked about was makeup, of course, but I did add a random favorite in there.

The question of the day is, what do you all like to see in favorites videos? I try to keep it down to my absolute favorites to avoid talking for 30 mins, but I am always up for hearing feedback regarding my channel and content. Even though I film and post what I like, I do keep in mind that others watch me and I would hate to sound repetitive or put everyone to sleep.

Do you all like favorites videos with strictly makeup, or some skincare and hair stuff mixed with a few random things? Let me know!

I hope you all enjoyed July’s video! If you’re new to my blog, please subscribe to my channel! I typically post videos to my blog after they’ve been on my channel for a few days.

All products mentioned are in the description box πŸ™‚ I did forget to mention that my awesome hat is from Rue 21.

Have a good day, lovelies.

Affordable Vampy Colors

IMG_8194

So, I’ve went over some affordable shades of red and my favorite “my lips but better” shades, but I haven’t touched on some of my absolute favorite shades to wear…vampy shades. I know that some people will see this and gasp and shout, “BUT IT ISN’T FALL!” and honestly, who cares? Screw rules. You wanna walk outside in 98 degree weather and rock a dark purple lip, do it. Own that shit.Β  I wear dark colors all year. There’s just something about a simple eye and bold lip that boosts my confidence. Okay, bold lips in general do that for me.

Beautiful and high quality darker colors do not have to cost you an arm and a leg though. However, if you’re nervous about wearing a vampy color and want to drop $20 on that Anastasia liquid lippie, buying a $5 tube of a similar color could boost your confidence and allow you to see if you like the color beforehand. Skip the usual $5 latte one day and go hit up your nearest Ulta or drugstore, because that’s where many of the shades I’m about to talk about came from!

Nyx Simply Vamp “She Devil” Okay, the name of this lipstick is badass for one, but I am a huge fan of the Simply everything formula by Nyx. I am not a fan of the packaging though. If you can get past that, these are amazing, and will only cost you $6.50 I believe. She Devil is a gorgeous blackened purple color, and it reminds me of Mac’s “Cyber” lipstick that everyone was ga-ga over last year. I don’t have that one to compare, but the formula of the Nyx one is creamier and a bit glossier. It dries down to a more semi-matte finish.

Nyx Simply Vamp “Enamored” Honestly, I recommend checking out all 6 shades in the Simply Vamp line because I own them all, but I tried to choose my absolute favorites, and this is one. Every time I wear this shade I get compliments. It’s a gorgeous burgundy shade with an almost rust look to it. Very 90’s shade, in my opinion. I was a kid in the 90’s so I wouldn’t personally know, so I’m just basing that off of old pictures from The Craft.

Colourpop’s “Pitch” This shade is the essence of the 90’s. It’s a straight up chocolate brown. It’s supposed to be matte, but the Colourpop formula isn’t as matte as a liquid lipstick. This shade is most comparable to Lime Crime’s “Salem,” though it’s not a spot on dupe. I really like to wear this shade on top of the “creature” pencil to give it a more reddish tone. These are also $5 each.

Colourpop “Creature” If I’m being honest, I reach for this shade so often. I love it. It’s a deep burgundy red with a hint of brown in it. This is also matte, and looks a bit more matte on the lips than Pitch does, in my opinion. I don’t always buy the matching pencils with these lippie sticks, but creature is one that I have used so often since I’ve had it.

Colourpop’s “Feminist” The color of this lippie is BOLD. It’s a super dark blackened purple, and it reminds me of Anastasia Bevelry Hills’ “Potion” but of course the Colourpop one isn’t a liquid. So, if you’re not into the liquid lipstick trend, but want a blackened purple, look into this one! The lippie sticks are only 1 gram in product, so if you don’t end up liking it or using it often, it’s not a huge waste of product.

IMG_8196

Milani “Matte Fearless” I know I have mentioned this lipstick so many times already, but it is so perfect. It’s a dark purplish burgundy, and you can’t beat the price for a shade this gorgeous!

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream “Transylvania” This is a cult favorite, and for awhile I didn’t fully understand the hype because the formula is a bit patchy on this shade. However, paired with a deep liner this shade is fantastic. I only added it in here because it is a cult favorite, and someone might be looking for a helpful tip to actually make this shade work. I love the color, but it really does look patchy alone.

City Color Be Matte “Marissa” This is the most matte formula in this post. I have said that before, but I’m saying it again so that everyone knows that this formula is much like the Melt Cosmetics formula. Super matte, and super drying. I did see a post on Dupethat stating that this shade is an exact dupe for Melt Cosmetics “Dark Room” and from what I could tell in the photo, it was a spot on dupe, finish and all. This lipstick costs $5 on the city color website, for can be found for cheaper ($2 for me) at your local Five Below.

Milani “Matte Love” This shade is a deeper cranberry shade. Perfect for those that want to try darker shades but don’t want to go from pink to goth in 2.5 seconds. I feel that this shade would be flattering on several different skin tones, and like I have said before the moisture matte collection by Milani is currently my favorite drugstore matte line.

That’s it for my post today! I hope you all enjoyed it, or at least found it entertaining in some sense. Do you wear vampy shades all year, or only in the Fall and Winter? Are you going to pick up any that I mentioned in this post? Comment and tell me about it!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having lovely days!

Face of the Day: Purple + Graphic liner

IMG_8171

Hey loves,

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another weekly Face of the Day post! However, this week I actually filmed this look. I was feeling inspired and had a bit of free time (aka the babies were sleeping) so I sat down and played with makeup. I was feeling inspired by several things, the color purple and one of my favorite youtubers, ReeRee Phillips. If you’re not subscribed to her, she does very goth looks, but they are somehow artsy and wearable…or atΒ  least wearable to me. There’s something enchanting about her makeup tutorials, so if you’re not subscribed to her, check her out. I also love that she uses classical music as the background for her videos…I can only handle that whistling song so many times. I’m just being honest.

Some of My Favorite Accessories

IMG_8062

Hey lovelies,

It’s been awhile since I have done anything fashion related. Honestly, I’ve never thought my sense of fashion was appealing to others. I kind of just dress however I’m feeling the day I wake up. I like a wide range of things that start at vintage everything to anything dark and creepy. That’s why I don’t particularly classify myself as “goth” or “punk” or whatever else, because people take that stuff way too seriously, and how dare I say I’m something if I’m not living and breathing it 24/7. In a nutshell: I do what I want. Just think of me as your friendly everyday slightly grungy mom with pretty necklaces.

However, it’s pretty apparent that I do have a love for weird and odd accessories. I do get asked often where I buy my rings and earrings. I have a love for accessories that can be worn with plain shirts and completely change an outfit. That’s what I’m rockin’ a lot of days. Skinny jeans, a tee, and some odd accessory. Typical disclaimer: everything in this post was purchased by me, and none of these companies know that I am doing this post! Everything is my honest, raw opinion.

IMG_8065

I tend to buy from individuals rather than large companies. Not all the time, but most of the time, especially lately. I love the idea of my favorite necklaces and hair accessories being handmade. I know that the people I buy from the most put a lot of time and effort into their work, and it shows in the quality of their pieces. So, for today, I want to share some of my favorite pieces that are seen most often in my videos and pictures, and I will include links and mini reviews of each person/company.

Worship 13 Jewelry: This is where the two large pendant necklaces and the large Chuck Hodi ring are from. I buy from Worship 13 very often, and I have always had a very positive experience! I most recently purchased a bat and black lipstick phone case from her, and shipping is always pretty quick in terms of independent businesses. She has a huge selection of gorgeous pieces, and is always adding new things.

Bella Morta Jewelry: This is where my Deftones and full moon earrings came from. The Deftones earrings were actually a custom order, and I adore them. Any other Deftones fans that follow my blog? She sells some lovely handmade pieces and is always very quick to ship everything. I recently snagged a triple moon coin purse from her off instagram, and a Frankenstein necklace that was featured in my Face of the Day post last week.

Dulce Calveritas: I discovered this shop through Kat Von D’s instagram page (another angel for promoting smaller shops) and when I saw the raven skull ring my heart skipped a beat and I practically threw my credit card at my computer screen. It’s not a real raven skull, but this ring is very well made. I absolutely love the attention to detail, and almost every time I wear it someone asks me where I got it from. This shop also sells nifty bat bows and coffee bean earrings!

Clip a Bow Boutique: Remember when I said I wear whatever I want? Okay, so bows are one of my guilt little pleasures. I think they’re so cute and look great on everyone, no matter the age. I own quite a few, but one of my favorites (okay it’s my favorite) is my LOTR bow. It’s big, it’s nerdy, it’s perfect. I am a huge LOTR fan, and this bow is a dream come true.

IMG_8063

Minky Monky Jewelry: this isn’t a small shop, I don’t believe. However, I’ve been getting a few questions about my septum rings and I thought I would mention it. I have been getting most of my septum and nostril pieces from either Minky Monky or Baublenation lately. They sell really lovely pieces at affordable prices. I know someone is gonna read that and judge me for wearing cheaper jewelry, but whatever. Momma is on a budget, and the thought of spending $200 on a septum clicker makes me gag. I don’t wear these 24/7, and I typically change it for my barbell at the end of the day.

IMG_8064(1)

Dead Spider Hands: if you follow me on Snapchat, you’ve seen this coloring book already. I’m head over heels in love with it. Adult coloring books are very trendy right now, and now I have one that’s perfect for me. It’s small, it’s cute, and it’s filled with hand drawn monster girls. Coloring is something that calms me down at the end of the night, especially on days where I’m feeling particularly anxious. This entire shop is gold though, and I have a few prints as well. I love buying pieces from independent artists.

So, that’s about it for today’s accessory post. These are just a few things that I love! I own a lot of really cool pieces, so if you are interested in seeing more posts like these, let me know! I love sharing new shops that I come across.

I hope you’re all having lovely days, and if you want, link me to some of your favorite places to buy accessories and other cute things!

Swatch Video: J.Cat Beauty Liptitude 24/7 Lip StainsWIld

jcat lipstick

Hey loves,

I uploaded a video to my Youtube channel last night! I think Friday may become my upload day? I dunno, still working on it. Anyway, I did a review + lip swatches of 5 out of 14 of the new J.Cat Beauty hydrating lip stains.

A few quick things:

These are highly pigmented.

They are semi matte.

The red ones do stain.

I love the heck out of this formula and the colors I swatched.

I bought all of these myself, except for the two that I got off Ipsy, but I also pay for that subscription every month.

The more I try from J.Cat Beauty, the more impressed I am. This formula is awesome, and until the August 1st you can get 25% off on these on their site.

Please watch my video and let me know what you think and if you like lip swatch videos!

Coming next week: Swatches of the Wet n Wild “High Flying Colors” palette

Face of the Day: My “go to” Date Night Look

IMG_8097

Hey lovelies,

How is everyone? I’m sitting down and typing this out on a Tuesday, and it’s been a weird day. A mostly happy day with some weird things. I started my day off by getting pooped on and I broke my favorite jewelry holder on my foot and I bled everywhere. However, once my kids laid down for a nap I was able to sit down and plan out my look for this week. I also had a great selfie day. There’s just something about looking through pictures and thinking, “Damn, I look nice,” that can perk a lady right up. And yes, you’re allowed to think you look damn good sometimes…or everyday. Because you all look nice everyday.

Anyway, today’s look is going to be my “go to” date night look lately. I tried to put my Kat Von D palette down for once and use all single shadows and some new products that I want to talk about a bit more. My go-to style of makeup in general is usually a pretty crease, a light lid, cat eye and fun lipstick. I know this differs for everyone, but I’m a bit “all or nothing” when it comes to my makeup. So, on date nights I like to go all out and feel happy and confident. For me, that includes red lipstick and cat eyes.

IMG_8095

I also put on an outfit that I would probably wear on a night out (a dress) and curled my hair. Without further adieu, let’s get into the details.

IMG_8096

My base today is actually a wee bit different than normal. I haven’t used my Hard Candy primer in awhile, so I pulled it out for this look. I actually like this primer, and do find it helps my makeup to truly stick, even in the Summer. My foundation is Nyx’s Invincible foundation in “Fair” mixed with a bit of my City Color tinted moisturizer in “fair” to thin it out a bit. That’s my number one tip for full coverage foundations on dry skin…a tinted moisturizer or a bit of beauty oil will thin out a matte foundation a bit making it lay better on the skin. I find this doesn’t take away too much coverage, but my skin has also been relatively clear lately.

My concealer is my usual…La Girl’s pro concealer in “porcelain.” However, today I set my under eyes with the City Color HD setting powder that I got in my July Ipsy bag. My first impression is that I enjoy this powder. Loose powder annoys me a bit in the sense that it’s pretty messy, but I did find this powder to be finely milled and very silky feeling.

IMG_8093

For my contour I used the dark shade in the Elf contour kit. Blush is “Birthday Suit” by Colourpop, and highlight is “Smokin Whistles” also by Colourpop.

My brows are my usual as of late, which is the Milani brow pomade in “Dark Brown” and set with Nyx’s brow mascara in “Black”

IMG_8099 IMG_8091

Okay, so for my eyes I primed with my Too Faced Shadow insurance. My transition shade is actually from a sample I received from Shiro Cosmetics called “Mourning.” It’s a lovely medium toned orangey-beige shade that is perfect for warmer toned looks because it’s not too orange. Don’t worry, I’ve ordered the full size. Then as a second transition shade I took “Dirty” by My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics (not pretty zombie cosmetics, it confused me at first too). Because I like to look like a big eyed doll at times, I did a rounded shape and took this pretty far in close to the bridge of my nose.

On my lid is actually a Colourpop shadow called “Acorn.” This came from their Spring collection, and I love it. It’s a pearlized cream color, so it gives dimension to this look without being shimmery. I applied this with my finger, which is how you get the most pigmentation with Colourpop shadows. However, concealer brushes work as well! The outer color is “A regular Bears Meeting” by Shiro Cosmetics.

Normally, I would use black liner for my wing. However, I’m still on the colored liner kick and I created a liner using Shiro Cosmetics’ “A War of Five Armies” shadow (see my method here) and I feel this really made the green in my eyes stand out. It’s a lovely dark burgundy shade. Lashes are the same ones that I talked about in my last video that you can watch here if interested. They’re just ebay lashes, but I love how wispy and romantic they look.

In my water liner I have Nyx’s jumbo eye pencil in “Milk.” Then I have “Mourning” blended out and “Dirty” closer to the lash line and slightly blended out. Mascara is Maybelline’s The Falsies. My inner corner highlight is super dramatic. You don’t have to be as dramatic as me. I used “Swan” from Colourpop. I love this as an inner corner highlight.

For my lips, it’s just Kat Von D’s “Vampira.” I haven’t worn this liquid lipstick in a bit, and I forgot how much I truly adore this shade and formula. It applies evenly and lasts all day. It feels comfortable and applies like a dream. I definitely want to get my hands on quite a few of the new shades when my local Sephora has all of them. I set my entire face with Urban Decays All Nighter spray.

Funny story about my hair: if you follow me on twitter, you would have seen me mention that I did a wet set using foam rollers and said I looked like “a punk poodle.” I did. It was bad. I put my hair in a bun and the next day (today) my hair looked better, and I went over the weird parts with a curling iron. This was the result. From punk poodle to glorious curls.

My necklace is from Bella Morta Jewelry, and my dress was actually a clearance find from Marshall’s.

I hope you all enjoyed this look! Tell me about your go to looks, for dates or whenever else. What makes you feel sexy and sassy?

Have a good day, lovelies.
