Egglands Best Brinner party and giveaway

I was contacted by the lovely folks of Egglands Best to host a brinner part which is brunch dinner! They provided me with a visa gift card and coupons and lovely goodies to hand out to my guests. 
These are the lovely goods my guests got to take home, how cute is this little egg fellow!
Now onto the foodporn lol . I decided to make a broccoli cheese quiche ,roasted chicken , and for dessert vanilla cupcakes with chocolate peanut butter frosting and topped with pretzels . I used Egglands best for all the items I made .
I have to say you can actually taste the difference with these eggs and they seem bigger then the usual ones I buy .

Here are some pictures from the party, I wish i would have gotten better pictures but it was late when everyone got off work so pretty dark out .
(prepping the quiche with my new whisk they sent me )

Vox Box review

So awhile ago i signed up for influenster and I've already gotten to try two boxes! If you want to sign up leave your email and i will send you an invite . Okay back to the box!

So i took a survey and i got matched for the vow box , even though I'm not engaged or getting married its still items i can use so i was super excited to get all this stuff!


The only thing i didn't review was the olay because i have super sensative skin . I did however pass it onto my mom and will update when she tries it .

Tide to go stick: These have been around awhile but i can't remember the last time i had used one . Conveniently i managed to get something on my white shirt which usually happens when i wear white lol .
I used it on a small spot and within minutes the stain had gone , if its a touch stain you can also toss it in the wash after using the tide. Its something that will come in handy to have around .

Sally Hansen complete salon manicure: I got the shade barracuda which is a really pretty sky blue color which is great for summer . I really loved the shade the downfalls were it took 3 coats to get that color and chipped about 2 days later even with my good top coat .

Pure Silk shave cream (raspberry mist): I really like the smell on this its not to strong and doesn't leave a strong scent after which i hate . As shaving cream goes it held up and did a good job . It wasn't exceptional but i have never really used any that were so overall i liked it .

Lastly was my favorite item in the box!

EcoTools pure complexion facial sponge : I have a few ecotools brushes that i know are great so i was excited to try this because I had not seen it before .When i first got it out of the box it felt like a light weight rock but when i followed the instructions and wet it it turned into a soft sponge . I added my regular face wash and scrubbed and washed my face . I have to say it was very soft , i was even thinking it could be a little more rough to really clean your face but i really loved it . My face felt really clean after. The best part was its so much better then using your hands to wash your face.

Urban Decay electric palette coming soon!


I got wind of this palette last month and since its finally confirmed and coming out next week I wanted to post about it . I currently have and love the Urban Decay naked 1 palette , I use it as part of my daily routine when I'm in a hurry or don't feel like going bold that day .
I also recently got Naked 2 but I don't love it at all , Its to muddy on my skin tone but looks great on others and in the pan . So my gift card for that return will be going toward this when sephora releases it .

It's set to release on March 18th on Urban Decay .com , not sure when its coming out from sephora but I'll be on the look out and update with swatches and looks when i get this .

Anybody else excited for this release ? Any other palettes or new spring item your looking foward to?

Tarte foundation brush vs Beauty Blender

Let's talk foundation today , For the past year I have been hearing about this beauty blender sponge that it's some sort of magic device to make your foundation perfect . I have used regular makeup sponges in the past but they waste so much makeup sucking it into the sponge. I figured since this beauty blender is super popular that it didn't do the same . I got lucky and ordered a glossy box and got a beauty blender inside .


I got the white beauty blender  in my glossy box and got to try it out the other day .
I was highly unimpressed , you have to use so much more foundation again the sponge sucks it up and although it blends easily it just doesn't get you far . The coverage isn't as great as a foundation brush will get you . I ended up having to finish the job with my tarte brush as i was getting frustrated. Also its very drying i heard you can wet the sponge but it gives your makeup a more light cover while doing so which i wasn't really into . Here is a picture of me when i used the beauty blender .




Next up is the Tarte airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush .

I found this on the sephora beauty forums and I am so glad I did ! This folks is the holy grail of foundation brushes . Let me first say i have used  high end brand regular foundation brushes before and they did work great but I really hated the feeling of literally painting my face on . Most of those brushes look just like a paint brush lol . I used this brush right away and instantly fell in love . It's great for one because it's easy , I imagine if you have never before used a makeup brush you could just pick this up and go to work. Its fluffy and soft and makes your makeup go a long way . Using less foundation but still getting the covered look . It blends right into your skin so no lines and having to use your fingers to blend out after . I also imagine you can use this for powder when cleaned . It's $32 which may seem steep to some of you but this one is a great investment in your face lol 
Here's a photo of me using this brush, there may not seem like a huge difference but in person i could definitely tell . You can buy both these items at sephora if you want to rack up your points!

If you have any questions I can help with leave me a comment . Thanks for reading!
