April 2012 Luxe Box from Loose Button

April’s Luxe Box actually arrived in May. Which is a little disappointing but my friend had warned me that Loose Button is usually late with the shipment of their boxes. I assume only people in the East actually got their boxes in April. I think it was a little later this time because of the confusion with their First in Line Program.

March 2012 Luxe Box from Loose Button

My March Luxe Box from Loose Button came on Friday and I was happy to see it. It’s a small surprise every month. I participated in their “first in line” program and I thought that I had confirmed my reservation for the Cargo glittery top coat but I didn’t get it in my box. I was pretty disappointed that it didn’t come but c’est la vie!

My box this month came with 4 items. Without further ado, here are my items:

February 2012 Luxe Box from Loose Button

I have been anticipating receiving the February Luxe Box since January when I signed up. At the time I was hearing people talk about a few different beauty sample boxes. Topbox, Glymm, Luxe Box, and Glossy Box were among the ones being mentioned that were shipping to Canada. Topbox was sold out so I decided to try the Luxe Box. If you haven’t heard of these, they are beauty sample subscriptions and usually send 4-5 deluxe samples every month. They vary from $10-$15. The Luxe Box is $12 per month with free shipping.

Here’s what I got in the mail today:

Get back on the horse…

I took a long break from blogging… and by long break, I mean two months shy of a year! To say that I’ve missed it is an understatement. It’s constantly been at the back of my mind. A little guilty reminder nagging me telling me to blog again. Well, I’m back and I can’t promise to blog often but I do promise to myself that I will blog.

To hold myself responsible, I will tell you what my next post will be:

A review of Deborah Lippmann nail lacquer in Naked. This might not happen until next weekend because of a pending move and upcoming due date for an assignment and study time for an upcoming midterm.

I am studious aren’t I? Actually, that is me taking a break to blog and be a cam whore. My eyes have been so tired, I’ve resorted to wearing glasses again. It reminds me of my days in university. It feels good to blog again! 🙂

MAC Venomous Villians

My friend asked me last week to accompany her to the MAC Venomous Villains launch. Not knowing what I was getting myself into, I agreed. I have to admit, I’m not really into beauty products other than nail polish. Always willing to try, but I really don’t know what’s good from what’s not. Nevertheless, I went purely for the experience.
