Petit Vour Boxes September – December

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a stress free holiday season and are enjoying the new year. Here is a list of products from the past few months of Petit Vour boxes. I am slowly getting better at writing reviews of the products within the time that I get them. Sometime it is difficult because I do not immediately find a use for a product. Other times I just find myself so busy with work and school that I forget what time is all together.

Lush Veganese Conditioner

There are some items that I do not mind spending a little more money on. We should allow ourselves a “splurge” item here and there if we can. “Treat yo self” but in moderation is an idea that I like to live by. I want to start posting a monthly item that I decided was worth paying more for.

September e.l.f. Haul

I know I have been writing a lot about beauty products recently but cosmetics is something I spend a lot of money on. Living on a budget means most of my makeup comes from e.l.f. or makeup sales from my favorite (more expensive) brands. This recent e.l.f. order has been one of my favorite so far, as I have enjoyed every single product that I ordered. Great colors, quality, and wearability from all of them!

Petit Vour Boxes March – August 2015

Hello everyone! I wanted to do more Petit Vour beauty box videos but long story short, I do not currently have access to editing software or have room on my computer. One of my summer projects is to clean up the files on my computer so hopefully I get to that sooner than later… In the meantime, I am going to post a written review of everything.

Colourpop Cosmetics

Hi everyone! This summer has been super hectic for me. I learned how to balance a full-time job with summer classes and the classes ended up taking up almost all my time when I was not working. My last day was Wednesday, so I finally have some free time (and energy) to blog!

Kiss My Face 2-1 Moisturizing Spray

Nothing says “summer” like the smell of freshly applied sunscreen. I went to Walgreens a couple weeks back to buy what I thought was a spay sunscreen from Kiss My Face. As it turns out, I bought their spray moisturizer instead of their spay sunscreen. I figured I might as well try it out since I am always keen to try new moisturizers.

Petit Vour beauty box video

I did it! I got through my first video with little to no mess-ups. I am actually very excited to keep making videos and get less nervous as the time comes. I apologize in advance to the companies if/when I mispronounced their brand names or products. I said “L.A. Fresh” instead “La Fresh” because my poor eyesight made me believe that there were dots between the “L” and “A.” I also butchered RawSkinCeuticals. I tend to stammer a lot when I am nervous. There are a couple other things I want to mention besides my mistakes in pronouncing names.

e.l.f. Haul

Hi everyone! I want to apologize for being absent for so long. I took a week off from my classes due to medication making me feel terrible and so I have been catching up with readings, assignments, and checking in with my professors and TAs. A couple of weeks ago, I thought I lost my expensive Lime Crime eyeliner so I ordered a bunch of stuff from e.l.f., including their Precision Liquid Eyeliner to replace it. Though I still have a lot of Lime Crime products and use them, you can read here about why I will no longer be buying from the company. I see no need to throw away products if my viewpoint on a company changes because it is wasteful. I have always hated wasting things and strive to minimize waste as much as possible.

L V X “Lolli” Review

I thought I would do some reviews of the products that I got in the Petit Vour September beauty box even though they are considered luxury items. However, I will say vegan friendly nail polish is something that you might want to splurge on. Quality goes down with cheaper nail polish but sometimes buying the less expensive item is necessary. It all depends on your college budget, how often you paint your nails, and how much use you want to get out of a home manicure.
