Ah yes, my first Barry M from my European birthday haul. Thankyou Amber love :D. Meet Barry M Dusky Mauve, a dusky grey brown with slight lean towards purple and a purple chromey shimmer. Formula fabulous and lasted days longer than my recent manis.

Want to know who won my Because I Love You Giveaway?
So I counted up ALL the entries *whew*. 496 entries. I only threw out one person for cheating. There were 496 entries with a total of 189 entrants. That's a lot! I'm really happy with all the comments I got from you ladies in the form and glad that so many entrants seemed happy to read my blog and enter my fun giveaway.
Random.org ---> 1-496, and the number it picked was 80! One of the earlier entries, hrmmm :D. So I went back and looked and it's someone from my super awesome facebook group. My lovely friend, and online polish girlfriend :D....
Yay Michelle :D! So glad it's someone I know and love that won, I always enjoy that. How funny too because when I went to announce it on the FB group she said I hope it's me haha! Well it is!! Hope you ladies have fun and better luck next time! :D

I've been trying some more of the products from my Birchbox and wanted to give you an update.
Twirl by Kate Spade: I used the perfume a couple times now and even Jeremy likes it! I like how the sample bottle had a sprayer like normal instead of the usual dabby wand. It's pretty nice and not too expensive. You can get a 0.25oz rollerball at Ulta and Sephora for $18. If it were expensive I wouldn't buy it again, but I really might buy this one!
Blinc water resistant Mascara: This is awesome! It says water-resistant, not waterproof, but I was playing in the pool with Isabela at work and she splashed me in the face multiple times and it didn't run! I'm really happy with this! It coats and separates the lashes nicely. It isn't super bold, so it's more of a natural look with a bit more emphasis. I did realize the size I got doesn't look like a full size, but it's definitely bigger than a usual sample mascara. You can get this on Birchbox.com and Drugstore.com for $24. Not sure I'd really buy it again at this price, but it is nice!
From last month's Birchbox, I've been working on some more products :D.
Philosophy Purity One-step Facial Cleanser: I really like this stuff. I'm not sure about the effects as far as reducing acne, it's always hard to tell. This is my go to face wash when my face is feeling sensitive, or when I know I'll be out in the sun and don't want to put the acne products on my face that increase sun sensitivity. It is so silky smooth and creamy, and smells like honey. A little really goes a long way and a pea size does my whole face. You can buy this for $10 for 3oz and $20 for 8oz at Ulta, Sephora, and Philosophy.com.
Kind Almond and Apricot Granola Bar: This was freaking amazingly fantastic. It had coconut in it and that made it for me. It was absolutely delicious and nutritious. I love that they focus on natural ingredients and stay away from unnecessary chemicals. I think they're $1.50-$1.99 in stores, which is a bit pricey, but they're tasty. I wish they were lower in calories for people like me who are trying to lose weight. I really would like to try these as my go to granola bar for a while though because I keep some in my purse to help control my blood sugar.
Have you tried anything from your recent Birchboxes and loved it?
