Benefit's They're Real Party

Lash Bash
by Benefit & Ipsy

           A few months ago I was chosen to host a Benefit party. I was so excited and honored.  Let me start this party review by saying I am deeply sorry to Benefit and Ipsy for taking so long to post about my amazing party.  I had a death in the family that week and it really affected my schedule.  But all that aside the party was amazing.

          With all the freebies and I just had to go out and buy all sorts of cute stuff for the party!

          I was not willing to take pictures while the party was happening just to respect everyones privacy.  But I did take plenty of pictures of the products and the decorations before the party.

          I invited friends and family; Cheerse, Katlyn, Jessica, Grace, Beatriz, Emily, Rosa, Tif and my mom.  We played the games, I gave away the two brow gels as prizes.  I also informed them on allot of the products shown and answered any questions they had.  We had loads of fun talking about make up and learning new things.  The ladies favorite part where the free samples they got to take home. They couldn't believe all the stuff and a few of them even knew the brand and couldn't believe that we where all get samples! We all love Benefit and we will all be buying more all due to this party!
        A special Thanks to Benefit and Ipsy!

KRE-O Cityville Invasion from BZZAgent

I received a BIG box the other day from BzzAgent and my son went crazy!

And you can see why, we received the Kre-o CityVille Invasion Marina Madness Construction set with 206 pieces and 5 of the  Dr. Mayhem's jewel heist with 36 pieces 

plus 5 of the $5 off coupons to pass out to friends.

 My son ran out and gave two of the Dr. Mayhem's sets (along with coupons) to his best friends across the street, so the picture is missing two.  He just couldn't wait lol!

He spent all day Saturday playing with this one toy!  It took him about 30-45 mins to put it all together by himself (he's only 5) and he loved every min of it! 

(While the dog watched TV lol!)

The amazing part about Kre-o is its not just building block it incorporates sound and motion.   The pier dock has ocean and sea gull sound effects and the shark and scuba diver have motion pads that vibrate and moves them across the board.  (Video of the motion and sound coming soon.)  

It is awesome! So innovated, I don't know why anyone would ever want boring old Lego's ever again! If you haven't seen them you have to check them out!  My son has already added other Kre-o box's to his Christmas list to Santa.

Scuba Guy

This is Dr. Mayhem's jewel heist all together.

 A special thanks to BzzAgent and Kre-o for making my little man so happy!

Some info on the Kre-o Set available:
The city may be growing, but something is rotten in the KRE-O Cityville metropolis — the evil Dr. Mayhem has gathered a troop of villains to aid him in his quest for world domination. Each KRE-O Cityville Invasion Building Set tells a part of the story. The invasion has begun, and the city’s fate is in its builders’ hands!
Combine any of the KRE-O Cityville Invasion Building Sets to see Cityville come to life. They’re all compatible with each other, as well as with other major building set brands. The line is available at all major retailers and here, and ranges in price from $2.49 – $39.99.


Ages 7+ / Suggested Retail Price: $39.99 / Includes 431 KRE-O Pieces
A rampaging gorilla has escaped the KRE-O Cityville zoo and is wreaking havoc downtown. Will the Cityville citizens be able to stop him?


Ages 7+ / Suggested Retail Price: $24.99 / Includes 270 KRE-O Pieces 
Three zombies storm the KRE-O Cityville police station as the KREON cops try to contain the outbreak.


Ages 7+ / Suggested Retail Price: $24.99 / Includes 317 KRE-O Pieces 
Ghosts and vampires abound in the Haunted Hideaway!


Ages 6+ / Suggested Retail Price: $19.99 / Includes 206 KRE-O Pieces 
A shark is on the loose in the marina. Use the shark capture claw to save the day, and catch him before he catches you!


Ages 6+ / Suggested Retail Price: $16.99 / Includes 177 KRE-O Pieces 
The mercury is rising fast as a fearsome dragon is burning things up at the KRE-O Cityville firehouse! *

A KREON bank bandit has drilled through the breakaway vault door and stolen a safe full of valuables.* Will the KREON police be able to stop him?

Gas may cost $3.07 per gallon at the KRE-O Cityville station, but brains are free, and a zombie KREON has come to fill up his tank. *
The KRE-O Cityville Invasion line also includes a variety of accessory packs — everything from the Sonic Motion Themed Assortment to the Vehicle Booster Pack Assortment to the Population Pack Assortment. Everything your child needs to build for days.

*Sonic Motion bricks not included. Sold separately in the KRE-O Sonic Motion brick technology sets.

August 2013 IPSY

August 2013
"Glamour Academy"

Gentle exfoliating facial scrub for all skin types. I have not tried this sample yet but I am very excited about it.
Coupon code: AUGIPSY for 30% off

I did not like this BB cream, I don't even know how they call it a BB cream its just a  moisturizer with very very little tint with sparkles.  It left my skin very oil (I have combo/ oily skin) I will not purchase this one. If your looking for a good drug store BB cream go with L'oreal's.
Coupon code: IPSY20 for 20% off

Eyeshadow in the color "Bronze"
I have not had the chance to try this yet... SORRY!
Coupon Code: IPSY25 for 25% off

In the color blackest black
This is a small sample tube not a full size.  I'll still happy with the size even thought its a sample. It was hard to get out of the tube, the plastic piece kept coming out.  It gives good length but it leaves your lashes very thin.  I like my lashes long & full, this actually looked funny to me.  I do not recommend this but it was still a nice sample to try.
Coupon code: PIXI+IPSY for 20% off

In the color "Anarchy"
This is an AWESOME sample I love Urban Decay and I don't get to try enough of there products.  The color is way out there for me but I will defiantly try it out.  I also love that this is one of there new releases and we get to try it first (Ipsters). Comes in 22 shades so anyone can find there perfect color.
Coupon code: IPSY for free shipping on lipstick.

My glam bag total is hard to figure this month but its around $38.34

August 2013 Birchbox

August 2013 Birchbox
"Finishing School"

Dreams Nail Lacquer 2 in 1 Base and Top Coat $9.50
This is a very cute little bottle but it doesn't seem to be anything special.  I will stick to my OPI topcoat.

Jasmine Seven Fresh Feet Wipes $25.95
I do not get this.  How is this beauty related? And when would anyone need to clean just your feet? ... Moving on...

Juice Beauty Oil-free Moisturizer $28
This sample is a nice size but I have already told Birchbox a couple of time that I can not stand the smell of Juice Beauty products, but yet I keep getting them... oh well.

Stilla Stay all day liquid lipstick $22 in the color "beso"
I was very excited to get this brand, even if its in a very intimidating shade.  I like the quality of the color, its very rich and vibrant.  It also stains and last all day, so I would love this product if it was in a different shade.  Defiantly recommend it for a long lasting lip stain.  (lip gloss is need with this product)

ShowStoppers Designer Fashion Tape $9.99
I will probably never use this and the one time I'll need it I will defiantly forget that I have it! Lol.  Seems to me that they could have added another sample or a few extras of this tape (@ .83¢) or the foot cleaner (@ .66¢) even thought I don't like ether one. This box just seem a little small. 

This month was also my anniversary box so I also received this leather key chain (separability).  I have heard that this is for lipsticks but I tried all of mine and none of them fit.  So if you have found something that fits please let me know.  Because I love it I just don't know what to do with it.

Box total $20.68
