Lip Monthly.... A couple of Pros and a lot of Cons!

My Newest Adventure..

So we all know I have a serious issue when it comes to all things beauty, and beauty boxes... well that is a whole new level of addiction for me! So when I saw the Lip Monthly box I was excited!! 4-5 lip products a month!! How can I refuse? So I subscribed, customized the one product they allow each month and waited....  This was my first email that I received on August 10!!

We are very excited that you have subscribed to Lip Monthly. Your first Lip Monthly package will be shipped within the first 10 business days of September.

Ugh a month away.. Ok I can do this, it is only a month away... So I waited... and waited ... and waited.... NO bag at the end of September so I stopped payment on the next months subscription and received a notice my payment was not successful to which I replied that I still had not received the Sept bag I had paid for in August so I was not going to approve another payment at this time. I received a shipment email and my September bag on October 6th!!

 Ok so no one is perfect!! Lets get into this bag and see what my patience is being rewarded with!! 

a gloss from Bang! I like darker colors but that is not one of the customized options for this month and I can live with that, a Kiss and Smink stick that is versatile and can be used on cheeks, lips, contour... etc., a Sorme liner that I will try one day but I don't line them that much so it may take a while... and last and least.... A face mask??? 

Wait the ad says 4-5 customized deluxe LIP products..... Only one product a month is customized and one isn't even a lip product? Hmmm, I am not exactly thrilled with the way we have started out but I am willing to give it another go. 

I renewed my payment and it was processed at that time. I receive the email to customize my product for the month and log in and the first thing I see is a note saying my payment hasn't been made. I will address that with the company after,  second thing I see is the customization, it is an eye shadow?? 

Ok this is a little annoying not only is at least one of the items for October going to be a non lip item but it is the one I can customize? I am really not feeling this whole thing now and starting to have doubts. So I email the company about the payment. I let them know that on top of not getting my first box till a month later and only after I had emailed them that I was disappointed in the fact that they were not all lip products. I received an email addressing not getting my Oct box yet... that wasn't the issue at all, and saying they do a monthly box mix up which is why I received the mask. Ok so your ad states that I will receive 4-5 lip products but I only received four products total and one wasn't lip? I included this is my follow up email and was told I should have read the FAQ's. 

It is now October 21, I still have not received my October bag, and customer service is pretty much not that great I have a feeling I will be cancelling my subscription after this!

Where can you get it?   well I guess this is where you can order it as for getting it haha you might???

How much is it? Your first bag is $5 and it is $12.95 each month after

Is it worth it? The products are good products I just didn't like the fact it wasn't what they advertised, shipping is not dependable, and customer service is horrible!

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!

2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.

3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
