I buy way too much stuff. If you follow me on Instagram it’s obvious. So to curb that I jumped on the subscription box train and sprung for the Play by Sephora one. It’s $10 a month and products are curated based on my PLAY! PROFILE. This month’s box is my first one and so far I like it. I’m excited to see what next month’s box has to offer and to try some things without spending too much(Keep me lifted in prayer on that one).
So now that I’ve tried this subscription box I want to know which one YOU think is the best and why? Tweet me @shantafabulous and use the #burymemondays tag to tell me what’s the best subscription box.
I have grand plans. Plans that involve lipstick and photos and me wearing those lipsticks in said photos. I’m not sure how it’s all going to shake out. Some say the hardest part of doing something is taking the first step. That makes sense. Many talk themselves out of doing something before the first move is made. Now I just have to keep going.
You’ve begged. You’ve pleaded. You’ve dealt with everyone rolling their eyes, but you finally got it, a Sephora gift card. I know you heard the harps play and angels sing, but now the anxiety is setting in. You want to make this purchase count so what should you get? There are endless possibilities and perhaps some not-so endless funds so here are some suggestions in case you can’t ball out of control in Sephora after the holiday or anytime a gift card comes your way.

I’m a woman who likes options or at least that’s what I tell myself when I pick up something that may or may not look similar to something I already own. So today I have a few swatches of some vampy lip options for you. One is on the high side while the others are budget friendly so hopefully you won’t feel left out if vampy lips are your lane and you haven’t tried these yet.
Fall is upon us. You may be dragging your hoodies (or someone else’s *winks*) from your closets so that means it’s time to transition your makeup to deeper tones. Deeper lippies are a staple, but what about blushes?
Nars Cosmetics Dolce Vita has been in my makeup drawer forever. It’s described as a dusty rose and a great blush for fall. It’s matte so if you’re trying to stay away from sparkly or glitterly blushes then this could be for you. Unfortunately, Nars blushes are not cheap. Prices have slowly crept up on us Narsissists in the last few years, but I still think they’re great. There’s something out there for most skintones so even if Dolce Vita doesn’t tickle your fancy there’s another one out there waiting for you. And if you already have a fave Nars blush let me know in the comments.
You’ve heard it. You’ve snickered at it. You probably tried it and learned from experience how wrong it was. So what’s the worst beauty advice you’ve heard?
The one that gets me is “reviving” your dried out mascara with eye drops. With mascara prices running less than $5 there’s no reason to revive anything. If for some reason your mascara is drying out before it’s time to replace it, return it, and may it never make its way into your shopping cart again. Ok? OK.
So let me know, what’s the worst beauty advice you’ve heard? Comments are always welcome and don’t forget to use the #burymemondays if you answer on social media.
The Beauty Blender. Is it an egg-shaped beacon of light or just another makeup sponge? I happen to love mine to the point that I stopped using brushes for a long time. Others don’t see the big deal or are happy with cheaper options from other companies. Where do you fall on this spectrum? Is the Beauty Blender everything you’ve ever wanted in makeup application or a hyped up, overpriced, colored sponge?
