Again Makeup by One Direction has released a great new product for young fans.
Brightly colored mascara, fingernail polish, and lip gloss!
The electroglam mascara includes three tubes in ‘does he know? (hot pink), ‘why don’t we go there’ (blue), and ‘story of my life’ (yellow). The mascara can be used on lashes and in hair.
The rock me nail varnish includes 3 polishes and 3 tubs of glitter. The colors are ‘happily’ (blue), ‘moments’ (pink), ‘Diana” (silver holographic). The glitter colors include: ‘star’ (holographic), ‘kicks’ (blue), and ‘not afraid’ (pink).
The liquilights glow gloss are UV reactive lip glosses. The colors included are ‘through the dark’ (red), ‘kiss you’ (orange), and ‘taken’ (pink). Each gloss changes color under UV light but I’ll leave the surprise color for you to find out…
I was a little disappointed with this box. It claims on the Memebox site that the box is “packed with beauty products made from organic herbs such as lavender, tea tree, chamomile, or peppermint”. The box didn’t end up including much of those. Instead it was much more floral, which really isn’t my thing. But overall it was still a nice box of goodies.
This box included:
1. Calmia Rooibos Aqua Spinkler Gel. An all-in-one skin booster, toner, and emulsion with a thicker texture. Once applied thins out and is absorbed by skin.
2. Calmia Herb Cleansing Oil Gel. Created with argan oil, lavender, rosemary, chamomile, basil leaf, and green tea extracts. This cleanser goes on like a gel cleaner but then lathers up when water is applied to cleanse deep.
3. Skinfood Bath Salt Honey Jasmine. Meant to alleviate and replenish your tired body and soul. I wasn’t really a fan of the scent, it’s pretty strong.
4. Nasarang Herb BB SPF50+. I’m just not that into BB & CC creams. But this one was right on par with all the other ones I’ve tried. A little on the pricey side though – $46.
5. Rose Mine Azulene Calming Gel. Formulated with chamomile extracts to alleviate redness, smooth out roughened skin texture, and even reduce red blemishes. Notes that it great for using with a sunburn or after long sun/heat exposure.
6. Kskin Rose Sense 100% Essence Oil. For use a perfume, bath oil, or massage oil. Strong rose scent, so not my favorite.
This month Memebox is offering my readers $5 off any purchase! Just use code: D6BHT2 at checkout.

Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray is truly a miracle product. The formula is oil, silicone, and paraben free. Just a few squirts on your clean face and your makeup will last all day. It makes the perfect clean palette to apply your makeup. I usually apply it in a ‘X’ pattern or and ‘*’ pattern. It takes a few seconds to dry then you don’t even know it’s there the rest of the day. Right away I noticed that my eye shadow doesn’t crease and blemishes stay covered longer. And you can’t get any more convenient – I mean all you do is spray it on and you’re good to go! To be honest I’d never been a fan of makeup primers, mainly because it was an extra, messy step, but this doesn’t take any extra time and isn’t messy at all. You can even spray it directly onto the application brush (for eye shadow, blush, etc.) and it will prevent creasing and apply evenly and smooth.
Via the Skindinavia website here are some Flawless Facts:
-83% of users agree: this is the best makeup primer they have ever used.
-93% of users agree: The Makeup Primer Spray makes skin feel noticeably smoother.
-Silicone-free formula creates a light, breathable barrier between skin and makeup.
-Helps to prevent redness, uneven skin tone and large pores.
-Proven to reduce the need for touch-ups or blotting.
-Formulated to be worn with or without makeup.
-All Skindinavia products are paraben-free and hypoallergenic.
A 4oz bottle retails for $35 and a 8oz bottle retails for $49. The bottles will last 90 and 180 days respectively. Skindinavia also has Oil-Control Primer Spray,Finishing Spray, Oil-free Finishing Spray, and Bridal Finishing Spray. The website offers some great kits, where you can get a primer and a finishing spray for a discounted price. From what I’ve seen there is usually a special running as well including a %-off discount and/or a free travel size. I also received a travel sized primer spray and it’s is perfect for your purse makeup bag and travel (obviously).
I’m definitely going to have to get my hands on the Bridal Finishing Spray since I’m getting married in less than a year. As a side note, I use the Mary Kay skincare line and when I was flipping through their catalog I noticed they offer a primer spray. After looking closer at the product I noticed that it was made by Skindinavia. I think this just goes to further prove how this is a great product.
Overall I think this product is great and a must have. The perfect addition to any beauty bloggers makeup bag, as well as the perfect product for a beginners pack.

When I was contacted by Memebox about reviewing one of there beauty boxes, it was something I couldn’t turn down! I was sent the Memebox Colorbox #1 Red.
Memebox is a beauty box from Korea, featuring popular beauty products from that area. They have SO many different types of boxes – so many that I want to try. They have colorbox, scentbox, boxes for the office or travel, you name it they have it!
You have probably figured out that since I received the Red Colorbox, that all the items are red in theme. The box included 5 full-sized items plus content card. This specific box retailed for $15.
Included beauty products:
Dearberry Flirt Lipstick 08 Red Parade ($12)
Dearberry Today Nail Laquer #21 Pink Sprinkling ($3)
L’OCEAN Eye Shadow L-35 Red ($10)
Tosowoong Gel Pencil Liner 04 Burgundy ($10)
Cheek Room Two Color Lip Gloss #6 Red ($12)
That’s a $47 value, so this box is totally worth the $15. The lip gloss is neat that it’s two colors and you can apply the pink or red to create the look you want. The nail polish is a nice color and has nice coverage and wear-ability. I have not used the eye shadow or lipstick. I just don’t wear red lipstick or shadow. This was a really nice box my only dislike is that it is all red, but I’m not a red person. But I definitely plan to check out other boxes because like I said they offer such a wide variety.
I had a lot of fun trying out this box and can’t wait to try more of their boxes in the future.

BA STAR is a makeup company that specializes in cheerleader/dancer make-up. But obviously anyone can use and wear it. Today I’m going to do a review on the ‘Midnight Smokey Eye Palette”. It’s a high pigment, long lasting shadow. The shadow is really shimmery. It comes with a shimmer base, I definitely suggest using the base when you use this shadow otherwise it stays a loose glitter. The base makes it stay longer and go on a bit creamier. You don’t even know it’s on after you put it on, and it seems to stay in place quite well.

Cowgirl Dirt is a cosmetic company offering a variety of products. “Cowgirl Dirt products are made with the purest natural and organic ingredients. Our collection of mineral-based products not only enhances your natural beauty, but also contains vitamins, nutrients and anti-oxidants that nourish your skin.” Once I saw their brand and how well it fit with my blog I knew I had to work with them!
1. Hi Ho Silver (eye shadow) – Shimmery silver, with a tiny tint of blue.
2. Oklahoma Storm (eye shadow) – Smokey matte black.
3. Cowgirl Up (eye shadow) – Love this color, kind of hard to explain. It’s kind of peachy looking in the image and in the container but when you put it on it’s very shimmery and iridescent (like those hand stamps from Chuck E. Cheese’s if you know what I mean).
4. Raspberry Wine (eye shadow) – Smokey plum with slight shimmer, great for accenting a smokey eye.
5. Rodeo Queen (eye shadow) – Matte blueish-silver (similar to Hi Ho silver, but more blue).
6. Let’s Ride (eye shadow) – Pink shimmer.
7. Rawhide (blush) – Coral-y pink matte.
I also received a sample of their Silk Veil powder foundation in Buckskin (a nice light coverage one), finishing powder (creates smooth appearance), and concealer in neutral light (covers very nicely). The eye shadows were really great. They are all very pigmented and have long wearability. They have a great shade selection as well as finishes (matte, shimmer, etc.). I definitely recommend them to all. It’s also great to see a makeup brand geared towards us farm girls! Because farmers do wear makeup!
As you know I have teamed up with Cowgirl Dirt to bring you the first giveaway held on this blog! You can win a lip gloss or eye shadow of your choice! Enter here: giveaway.
