This month’s theme is “You Are Now Entering Metropolis” ~ We run this town!

(1) The Vintage Cosmetic Company 

High quality rose gold stainless steel slanted tweezers for easy brow shaping.  A must have for every make-up bag!  Sample size is full-sized of course.

(2) Trust Fund Beauty

“Lipgasm” Lip Gloss ~ color is “Method To The Madness”.  While this is glossy and does not dry out my lips there is absolutely NO color to this; hardly even what I would call a lip stain.  Full size 4 ml.

(3) Pretty Woman

Nail Polish ~ color is “I Can’t Deal” AKA gray.  Polish goes on smooth and is not only fast-drying but, long-lasting.  Great canvass color if you are into designs and adding jewels and such.  Full-size at 10ml g.

(4) N’Vive

Creme Naturelle.  Is purported to heal cracked skin and to calm itching and redness.  I have been using this as a hand cream; viscosity is not thick and absorbs well into my skin.  Scent is very medicinal; not overly strong but, notable even a few hours after application.  Travel-size at 35 ml.

(5) Smashbox

Camera ready BB Cream, Broad Spectrum SPF 35 in a light color.  I cannot attest to the SPF due to the weather being very overcast, raining and I have not been getting out much.  Blends in well though to my facial pigmentation and does a good job at cover up.  Sample size 0.25 fl oz.

(6) NudeStix

This was actually extra from me “cashing” in some points.  Remember, you earn points each month from not only the subscription but, reviewing each item and the monthly bag.  The points add up quick.  This is a concealer pencil in a light color; works and blends wonderfully!  I use it for under my eyes to lighten the dark circles.  Full size 2.49 grams.

Conclusion:  3 out of 5 stars

What new nail color are you wanting to try?
