Beautylish Haul

Hey Belleza’s

Have you guys heard of Beautylish yet? If not, it’s basically your go to place for all your beauty needs. Not only do they sell makeup, but they have amazing tips and videos as well as an awesome beauty community.

I’ve been wanting to order from Beautylish for quite a while, but for some reason I kept forgetting. That is until they started selling the infamous Bioderma that so many international beauty bloggers have been raving about.

As soon as I received the email that they are now carrying it for the United States, I just knew I had to place an order along with some other items I’ve been wanting to try.

So today, I just want to share my haul with you and if you see something you want a review on just let me know. :)

PenGems Crystal Pens – Add A Little Sparkle To Your Day

Sent for Review

You can read my full disclosure policy here.

Hey Belleza’s,

Being a mommy and a blogger among many other things can be quite hectic. I’ve recently learned that staying organized with all my daily task is extremely important. Now, I like to consider my self a tech savvy person and try to keep up with most things on my computer or phone. However, there are some things that I just have to do with pen and paper. For instance, writing up my blog posts or writing down notes and ideas.

For some reason, I just feel more productive when I put the pen to the paper. That being said I have this huge infatuation with pens. I’ve been pen crazy since I was in high school. The prettier the pen and the more unique looking the better. So when I was given the chance to review some gorgeous pens from PenGems, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

I can honestly say that PenGems are by far the most prettiest, sparkliest pens I’ve ever seen.

SAMSUNG CSC

Aren’t those crystals gorgeous!?

What makes PenGems so unique? All PenGems are each filled with over 120 sparkly gorgeous crystals! Not only do they come with crystals inside of them, they also include a matching rhinestone on the end of the pen. If a rhinestone isn’t your thing, then you can select a Stylus pen which has a silicone tip that can be used on any touch screen device.

SAMSUNG CSC

These babies are super easy to use, just simply twist the top and it will expose the top of the pen. The quality of these pens do not fall short. I find that they are very sturdy, and not too heavy. They write smooth, flawlessly and I don’t have any problems with the ink skipping or coming out in blobs.

With over 30 colors to choose from you’re bound to find a PenGem just right for you. If you can’t decide on one color then you can opt for the Rainbow PenGems option. Or if pens aren’t your thing, there are Pencil PenGems!

Here are the colors I received from her Limited Edition line:

Signature PenGems

Bronze:

Cream:

Aubergine:

Stylus PenGems

Marsala:

Amethyst:

My daughter has claimed Amethyst and she loves the fact that it has a Stylus tip! She finds that it comes in handy when kicking my butt in Draw Something. LOL

Another great thing about these pens are that they are refillable! There are so many refill colors to choose from black, blue, pink, turquoise, bordeaux, etc. Not only do they come in a variety of shades, but they come in a variety of sizes. Refill sizes range from 0.4mm – 1.4mm and come in either ballpoint ink or gel ink. So you can truly make your PenGem your own.

SAMSUNG CSC

Refilling the colors are super easy! Just twist off the top,

SAMSUNG CSC

and then twist off the bottom white cap and VOILA!

SAMSUNG CSC

I ordered several different sizes and colors of refills so I will be updating the post this week with the writing samples of them.

Looking at these pens you would think they would cost a pretty penny, but at $9 each they are super affordable, plus if you use promo code: BELLEZA you’ll save an additional 10% off your total!

(Yes I know I don’t have the best handwriting.)

Gerard Cosmetics – Kimchi Doll & Rodeo Drive

Hey Belleza’s

Not too long ago I did a review on the Gerard Cosmetics Lipsticks which you can find here. With the exception of one, I really did like them. I liked them enough to go and buy more.

All month Gerard Cosmetics has been having some AMAZING sales and they’re throwing free shipping in as well for the remaining month of March!

So I took advantage of the 2 lipsticks for $20 ( select this bundle and use code GC2lips) and chose Kimchi Doll and Rodeo Drive.

SAMSUNG CSC

Kimchi Doll is a baby doll pink and peach nude with a matte finish that was created by YouTuber Sophia Chang.

I had no idea that this would be signed! Apparently, since it had just launched when I purchased it, they were sending everyone signed lipsticks tubes. I love the personal touch!

While Kimchi Doll is gorgeous in the packaging, this shade was just a bit too light for my skin tone and looked super chalky on my lips. When I was trying it on, my daughter walked in my room and was horrified asking me what in the world I did to my lips… LOL! I honestly don’t feel like going through the hassle of returning it, so I ended up just using some darker lip liners and was able to make the color work for me.

SAMSUNG CSC

Rodeo Drive is a gorgeous medium rosy pink shade that has a beautiful creamy finish to it.

SAMSUNG CSC

Both shades are very pretty; however, I think that Kimchi Doll will work best on lighter skin tones, where Rodeo Drive looks like it will work with both lighter and darker skin tones.

I have ordered another 2 lipsticks and 2 lip-glosses from Gerard Cosmetics. Hey what can I say? I just can’t pass up a great sale, especially when they are offering free shipping!

So stay tuned for swatches of Cherry Cordial, Grape Soda and since I’ve never tried their lip glosses, I’ll be doing a review on Cocoa Bean and Butter Cream.

Also, if you want to get in on these great deals, here are some codes that you can use. Just click on the link and enter the promo code next to it.

2 Lipstick Bundle -$20 ( GC2lips )

Just 4 You – $39 ( GC4You )

Lip Gloss Duo – $19 ( irishkiss )

Lipstick 3 Pack – $30 ( LizzyLippies )

Lipstick 5 Pack – $49 ( GCdeal49 )

35 % off  total purchase – ( 35off )

Color Your Smile Essentials includes: Whitening Pen, lipstick, lipgloss – $25 (SuperDeal)

I did check before posting that all the above codes are still valid; however, I’m not sure how long these codes will be valid for. So if you can, take advantage of these sales as soon as possible. Also, free shipping is automatically included for the remainder of the month regardless of your total spent.

If you purchase anything let me know :-) I would love to hear what products/colors you end up choosing.
