July 2017 Favorites!


Another summer month has past, and I managed to not melt in the process. This month's favorite's have a bunch of warm weather staples, and some warm weather colors.

Beautibi Haul & First Impressions

After seeing many Beautbi packages come across Fifty Shades of Snails' Instagram feed, I finally succumbed to temptation and placed an order myself! Beautibi's About page describes the shop as "A boutique Asian skincare + lifestyle destination, created with the intention of introducing innovative products and brands from Taiwan and South Korea." I've been intrigued by the shop after Fiddy's posts (she is very, very good at influencing!) and following the shop itself on Instagram, so I was excited to pick out some masks!

Sephora Play! - The Iconic Edition


In mid-June, Sephora released a VIB Rouge exclusive Play! box. The description of the box promised a set of all luxury brand minis for the price of $20. In general, I like my Sephora boxes, so I decided to go for it - $20 for some high end goodies sounded like a good deal to me! Of course, the package arrived while I was on vacation, so I had to wait to rip into it. However, I'm super pleased with my purchase!

Empties - Bath, Body, & Hair


Some of the most beat up looking empties...bath and hair stuff! I guess because they live in the shower, they get wrecked looking. These are from January-April of this year. I think I'm missing a few, as the bathroom garbage can is just right there.

June 2017 Favorites!

Summer has started, and therefore my makeup has changed to be lighter to try and keep up with the humidity. My favorites from the last month have all been about getting the most out of the smallest amount of product, so I don't have as much makeup melting off of my face! (I don't do well in heat.)

Glossier Haul & First Impressions

Glossier is a brand that has been making more and more waves in the beauty community lately - new releases all lining up with the barely-there makeup "cool girl" aesthetic caught my eye. I'm not one to skimp on makeup, but since my dedication to skincare has really paid off, I can see the appeal of a hint of coverage and color. After seeing friends pick up some products, and getting a recommendation for their skin tint to help bring some life into a bb cream formula I really like, I decided to place an order. I was super excited to play with these items and write about my first impressions.

June Sephora Play! Box

It's been a while since I discussed the monthly Sephora Play! box, so I decided to jump back in with June's box. The theme for this month was Summer Starters - all products to help keep your face and hair in check as the weather heats up (and where I am, gets bogged down with humidity.) Let's take a look at what I got this month!
