Depot Urban Decay's book of Shadow IV palette to Trish Mcevory Deluxe Double Compact

This palette is really nice, but it's too big to travel with me. So I decided to depot all the eyeshadows into the Trish McEvoy Deluxe Double compact that I bought few weeks ago.

I used X-acto knife to cut the thin front layer that surround the eyeshadow pans and saved the named of eyeshadows, therefore I didn't have to write them down. 

I used un-sharp knife to put it between eyeshadow pan and the cardboard, then I pulled the pan out. Finally, took me an hr and half to depot this bulky packaging

I used the nail polish remover to remove the glue of the back of eyeshadow pans. Then I taped the named on the back the eyeshadow pans

Enough to fit 16 eyeshadows from Urban Decay's book of Shadow IV palette

December Birchbox 2012

Love the box's color and design  =}

But inside the box isn't really surprised me

The box contains: Juice Beauty - Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream
ModelCo - Shine Ultra lip gloss
 Thymes - Naia Body lotion
 Kerastase - Nutritive Nectar Thermique - Protect
Birchbox beauty extra: Thymes - Lotus Santal Body Lotion

Juice Beauty - Steam Cellular Repair CC Cream: 12 in 1 multi-tasker. Light weight and the scent is weird. However, it's interesting to try this out. =)

ModelCo - Shine Ultra Lip gloss: it's really nice, but it's not pigmentation
This lipgloss built in mirror =}

Thymes - Naia Body lotion: really light weight moisturizer. The scent is nice and good packaging for travel. 

Kerastase - Nutritive Nectar thermique - Protect: it's not bad, but I don't like the packaging.

Thymes - Lotus Santal Body lotion: this really tiny sample to use for one time and it's not enough for my both arms.  

$50 off dress rental of $125 and up. I actually don't use it. =[

Overall: This month Birchbox is not bad as last month. At least there are few products that I could use. I wish they have more makeup products in the box than hair products or other stuff.

Influenster: Como Voxbox 2012

 Influenster is website where you sign-up for free and unlock all the badges that fit in your lifestyle. They have badges for who are Beauty Queens, Fashionistas  Jetsetters, Dog Lovers, etc. The idea is spread the word to your friends and family and to share the lastest, products, and places, and reviews with each other. After you complete survey and unlock few badges, you will be notified that you qualify or not to get free products.  They will send you an email to let you know that you qualify and which VoxBox you will get to try out. So I'm lucky enough to receive the Cosmo VoxBox 2012 and try out the products in this box. 

This box contains: Venus, Ghirardelli Chocolate, Forever Red Eau de Parfume, and Frixion by Pilot pen.

I got Gillette Venus & Olay blade refill and Venus Embrace Razor handle. Also, including $2 off coupon. Love it. I was about to get it since I ran out the razor for while. These razor is really to use.

This is my favorite of this box. I really love Ghirardelli chocolate and special it's milk cholocate with Sea Seat and Roasted Almonds. It's good to eat and drink with coffee or tea while I'm eating this. =}

Forever Red Eau De Parfume Exclusively @Bath & Body Works. This perfume scents sweet pomegranate and red osmanthus. I like it because it is natural floral with pomegranate scent and not very too strong perfume. 

FriXion by Pilot Pen-is really nice packaging. When I use it, the Gel in colors is alright and not that soft . A pink gel ink pen sometimes it's come out, but sometimes it's not. I'm not big fan of this gel ink pens.

I recieved these products from Influenster to try and review, but I am not being compensated or sponsored. All my opinions are true.

Trish McEvoy: Deluxe Refillable Double-Decker Compact and free gift

I haven't tried out or bought any Trish McEvoy before. Last week, I checked my e-mail as usual and I saw the promotion that you will get 20% off and 3 free gifts plus Free shipping with any order. I was surprised it's really good deal.

It's arrived yesterday and I could not wait to open it =}

Deluxe Refillable Double-Decker Compact and 3 free gifts (with purchased)

I love the packaging

This palette can hold 16 eyeshadows of "Urban Decay's book of Shadow IV"

3 free gifts: A full size of SPF 15 Sheer Lip Color in Baby pink 
A full size Essential Pencil
A deluxe travel size Precious Pink Jasmine

SPF 15 Sheer Lip Color in Baby Pink

The Texture is really smooth and it's good to have SPF 15 =}. I really don't like the scent of this lipstick that much, but I can wear with my favorite clear lipgloss on the top.

Essential Pencil in Baby Pink. You can use the Essential Pencil as all over lip or lip base, and also it can be used on cheeks, too. Creamy and easy to apply.

I took these pictures in different light and angle, but same swatches. The top swatch is SPF Sheer Lip color in Baby Pink. The bottom is Essential Pencil in Baby Pink (in the pictures is seem more dark brown), but in person, the color is metallic medium pink frost finish. The color is really interesting and different color when you look in different angle and light. =p

Love the scent of this deluxe travel size perfume in Precious Pink Jasmin
