Charlotte Tilbury Marie Antoinette + Essence All I Need
I don’t wear eye shadow very often, but once I saw Jade share this Charlotte Tilbury cream shadow, I had to have it. I am in love with the shade! Since it’s a pretty penny, I want to be sure and use it and get my moneys worth. You could wear it alone, but I always put a powder shadow over a cream. $35 cream with a $2 powder, it’s called balance, friends.

Chanel Rouge Allure 91 Seduisante Lipstick
I went to NYC the last weekend in May for my BFFs wedding. I decided to pick this up at the airport to commemorate my trip. I love the idea of a memory being tied to a certain lipstick. For the past few years, I’ve bought myself a high end/luxury lipstick for my birthday. Each time I reach for that shade, I remember my birthday and different events from that year. Now, every time I reach for this GORGEOUS Chanel shade, I’ll remember my best friend’s wedding.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter
I got a sample of this at Target and fell in love with the scent. I don’t like the feeling of lotion because so many are so greasy and just sit on my skin rather than sink in. Fortunately, this one doesn’t do that. It absorbs quickly, hydrates, doesn’t leave a greasy feeling, and it smells so. dang. good.

Soap & Glory Scrub of Your Life
I got this in my Target Beauty Box in May and even though I haven’t used it up yet, I already bought a back up. There was a gift set on sale that came with the scrub and the body butter and I couldn’t resist.

LOreal Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair & Protect Balm + Neutrogena Clarifying Shampoo
I only wash my hair once a week, usually on Sunday. I don’t use dry shampoo till about Thursday and if I have weekend plans, I will wash it on Friday or Saturday. I always get asked how I only wash my hair once a week. I’m very lucky and my hair just doesn’t get oily easily. The other trick is the aforementioned combo. I use this conditioning mask and leave it on about 20 minutes. I rinse it out and then use the Neutrogena shampoo. The mask/balm hydrates my hair and makes it soft and shiny and the Neutrogena gets any residue left behind from the mask and other hair products. Another bonus, they’re both at the drugstore and super affordable.

This box wasn’t a complete bust and for $7, I can’t really complain. You know what you’re getting when you buy the box and I knew I wouldn’t use some of the products. The St. Ives Cleansing Stick and Soap & Glory Scrub are the stand out products and make the box worth it.

Target releases these boxes on the first Monday of every month and they usually sell out quickly. I haven’t bought one in a while, but if they continue to be this good, I may become a repeat buyer.
