My Review of the Crown Brush HD Set - #crownbrush

I was sent these brushes from iFabbo to review and I was thrilled because I needed a new brush set. Crown is new to me and after some research I found out they have been around for over 30 years.

As you can see the brush set comes in three different colors, I received the six piece set in orange. It contains 6 different size brushes a mirror, tweezers all in a cute zipper case. The brushes are 100% vegan and are very sturdy high quality.

The brush set includes:
Detail Liner, Chisel Shadow, Crease Blender, Deluxe Contour, Tapered Blush, and Pro Powder and tweezers.

I think my fave of the set is the tapered blush the size is perfect which makes for easy application. My second favorite would the tweezers, these are nice tweezers. Overall, I liked the brush set I did not experience any shedding and they are very soft. 

Overall, these is a great brush set for a beginner like me!

Aw, the dreaded holiday shopping time of year. For some finding the perfect gifts can be a challenge. For me, my challenge is getting you a gift without getting one for myself too! We all have our issues. Anywho, when gifting you just gonna think outside the box and its easy.

I love drinking, especially drinking out of fancy sancy glasses. I am the chick who drinks water from wine glasses only and must have a saucer with my tea cup. 

Today, dedicated to the fancy drinkers in your life.

Perlier Imperial Honey Review

I was sent this Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter to review and, talk about perfect timing! Whew, my skin is starting to crave extra moisture since the temperature has dropped. Now, this body butter retails for $40, however it uses honey (which is costly) from African Black Bees, which does amaze balls things to your skin 
Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter

Although, it is pricey the tub is large it is 6.7 fl oz and a little goes a long way. It is a thick and very moisturizing BUT not greasy or oily at all.  My skin felt GREAT, I mean Tony the Tiger GREAT. Ok, Now let me tell you about the scent.... oh child it is strong and it stays with you. At first I did not like this at all; I mean I love honey in my tea but I don't want to smell like my cup of tea. The smell actually grew on me and I kinda like it now. I guess this will come down to personal preference.

Elizabeth and Clarke Fall - Review

Elizabeth and Clarke is a shirts subscription box service that delivers designer quality shirts to you each season. 

When you sign up you sign up for the next season’s collection, which you can preview on their website. So, I signed up in Summer for the Fall collection. You can select either 1 shirt for $30, 2 for $50, or 3 for $60. I was able to score a deal and get the 3 shirts for $30 instead of $60 via When you preview the seasons collection you will see five shirts to choose from of which you select your picks. I liked that is was only five shirts because sometimes too many options can be a pain. However, all their designs are done in house so, I didnt except a million choices. Quality over quantity right?

A few months later I got my box. 

The information card shows all fives shirts that were offered.

The back of the card is kinda cool. It talks about the design process.
I have to throw in a disclaimer for my horrible photos. It was so hard to get good pictures!

First up is the Liz Lemon! This is the perfect white tee shirt. Super-soft luxury lightweight cotton, with just a hint of stretch. Long enough to wear with leggings. A relaxed fit in the waist and hip, slightly curves in at the waist to neatly tuck in to jeans. Adorable cap sleeve.
color: white
fabric: 35% cotton, 65% microfiber poly
care: machine-washable, dryer-safe

The Lyon! All these tops are so soft and comfy. This is a long sleeve top with an asymmetrical point. This is long enough to wear with leggings and fitted. It is thin so you can layer this for Fall. 

Lastly, is The Taylor! The Taylor is there most popular blouse. It is long sleeved blousy shirt with button on each. It feels like silk but is actually a wrinkle stain resistant fabric.

I adore all my tops. The fabric and design is perfect. The size are on the larger size but, that is perfect for me. They offer returns/exchanges if needed. 

Currently they have their winter collection on their site and they are perfect for but the office and office parties.  At $20 a shirt, Elizabeth and Clarke is a win win.

Julep's October Box - Review

Julep is super on time with their boxes. I feel like I just got the September box and, now on September 30th I receive the October box. 

I get the Modern Beauty box according to my profile.  Which is perfect for me because it is an all-product box and; I really don't need any more nail polishes. I was glad when I noticed one of the two products was a mask!

Here is the box!! With Candy Corn! I actually do not like candy corn because it is way too sweet however, I love seeing it because it reminds me of fall.

Here is the pencil.

Two intensely pigmented colors—carbon black and brown shimmer—that glide on smoothly and blend like a dream.
Features & Benefits of Kajal Eye Glider:
  • Two colors
  • Ideal for inner rims, tightlining, and smoky eyes
  • Blends like a dream—won’t drag or pull on delicate skin
  • Opthamologist-tested
  • Kajal-friendly, round-tipped, high-quality sharpener included

  • One side is a shimmery brown

    And the other side is black. The glides on so easy.

    The Kajal Eye Glider and Sharpener (sorry, not shown) is a really nice liner. I have a million eyeliners from all my subscription boxes and unfortunately, I do not wear liner. Nonetheless, I still think this one was a great product.

    A peel-off mask of gentle kaolin clay and black volcanic ash.
    Features and Benefits of Mask Noir:
  • Black volcanic ash boasts anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial peptides.
  • Kaolin Clay is as gentle as it is deep-cleaning.
  • Incredibly clean, visibly brightened skin upon removal
  • Enriched with Julep’s proprietary Power Cell Complex™, a trio of skin-boosting superstars:
    1. Rosehip seed oil – a nourishing oil (and natural source of vitamins A and C) that helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and post-acne marks. Contains natural fatty acids that bond moisture to skin
    2. Malvaceae Lipid Extract™ – a lipid complex that provides immediate and long-lasting hydration and works to rebuild skin structure from the inside out
    3. Green coffee bean oil – a natural anti-inflammatory that promotes cell turnover

    I really liked this mask it took to about 15 minutes to fully dry and peels off pretty easy. This mask is nice. The regular cost is $32 which I think is kinda costly.

    Eat Green Tea - Review

    I am an avid green tea drinker. I mean I down at least five cups a day so, when I was offered the opportunity to review EatGreenTea I was super excited! I make a green smoothie every morning with kale, bananas, and a mixed of other fruits that I switch up from time to time. I decided to just throw this in with my smoothie and I did not notice it taste wise at all. However, I did notice an increase in energy and mental clarity. I have only been using this for about a week now but, I think this may be a winner. This product can be sprinkled on top of your food or used in baked goods as well. I can't wait to add this to baked goods!

    I really love that EatGreenTea uses pure green leaves chance.  

    Check out the below excerpt from EatGreenTea:

    We collected samples from organic green tea farms around the world. We submitted those samples to a lab here in America to be tested for the presence of heavy metals. Organic certification doesn't account for this. Heavy metals (even in very small concentrations) can wreak havoc on your body. And once in your system they are extremely hard to purge. We examined the results and chose the farm that had the purest green tea powder that we could find anywhere. 

    Benefits of Using EatGreenTea on a Daily Basis
    - Increased Energy
    - Weight Loss Aide
    - Cancer Fighting Properties
    - Anti-microbial
    - Anti-inflammatory
    - Cholesterol-lowering Aide
    - Helps Regulate Blood Sugar
    - Improves heart health, lowers blood pressure, and increases circulation
    - Improves liver function
    - Combats Skin Damage 

    The lovely people at EatGreenTea has a great website that has a really cool recipe section to give you cool ways to use your EatGreenTea. 

    I really enjoyed the samples I received and plan to incorporating this in my daily routine. 

    I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
