Stylemint Grand Finale Mystery Box

My Stylemint Grand Finale Mystery Box finally arrived – a special promotion box I ordered that promised 4 to 10 items for $29.99.  I have to admit that I can’t get enough of mystery bags…



I’ve never ordered anything from Stylemint before, but other reviews mentioned that their sizes run large.  I’m a fairly petite person, so I stuck with their smallest size (size 1).  


In my box were the following items:

1. White Flag Tee Shirt that says “LOVE” on the pocket (I can’t find the name of it) 

Of the four pieces I received, the LOVE tee shirt is my favorite.  I’m not a huge fan of graphic tees, but it’s so soft and cute.  

2. Pink Longsleeve Henley (Mercer Tee) (value = $29.99, currently on sale for $15)

The quality of this shirt that reminds me of one that I would purchase from Splendid.  I like the bright watermelon color, but this shirt doesn’t quite fit me.  I can use it for layering or as a pajama shirt 🙂

3. Black Larkin Top (value $29.99) 

If I wear this, I will tuck this into a bodycon skirt. You might not be able to tell in the picture, but t’s a really heavy velour shirt.  The back of the shirt scoops fairly low and has a ribbon that ties it together. 

4. Cappuccino Maggie Dress (value $29.99, similar here
This dress has a henley-style front to it and comes with a (flimsy) tassel belt/rope.  This was my least favorite item in the box because it’s made out of scratchy tee shirt material and the dress doesn’t flatter.  It might suffice as a beach cover-up or pajamas.  

Earlier in the year, I ordered a Mystery Box from Jewelmint and was disappointed.  Although I might not order another mystery box from any of the Mint websites, it was fun to receive a surprise in the mail!

Ipsy (My Glam Bag) January 2013 Review

Hello! Now that we’re nearly half way through January, I’ve decided to take on a few of my New Year’s Resolutions.  One of those resolutions includes blogging, so I figured I would start by sharing something fun that came in the mail today… my Ipsy (My Glam) Bag!

I had high expectations because last month’s bag (and my first-ever Ipsy bag) was great!  For those of you who are unfamiliar with Ipsy, this is a $10 monthly subscription service where you receive 4 to 5 makeup products in a makeup bag.  It’s a great option for those of us who want to try new products.  Unlike a lot of other subscription services, this one seems to send quite a few deluxe samples and even full-size products.  **I am not a paid sponsor of Ipsy

Here’s what was in my bag this month:

2.5 oz Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Mini Body Butter = $7 

.5 oz Nailtini Nail Polish (full size) in the color Frappe (light pink/nude)= $6  

Soho Professional Eyeliner Brush = $7.99

.17 fl oz Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil = $4.80 (full size 1.7 oz = $48)

1.5 oz Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play Volumizing Hairspray = $2.48 (full size 10.6 oz= $17.50)

Total  Value= $28.27
All of these products came with a small, navy blue makeup bag.  The bag wasn’t attractive, but the interior was adorable because it was covered in white stars.


I am, once again, happy with this bag and will continue to subscribe!
