Last month I received my very first Scentbird perfume. I heard about the website through a YouTube video and thought I would give it a shot. I’ve always been on the fence about perfumes because of my allergies. It was hard to find ones that I enjoyed, that wouldn’t cause me to look like I’d been crying all day, and that were in my price range. I’ve been wanting to try lots of new ones and start building a decent little collection so finding Scentbird has been perfect.
If you’ve never heard of Scentbird before its a subscription based site that sends you a small 30 day supply of perfume every month. Your first month you’ll also get a case to put the vials in. This way you can try before you commit to an entire bottle of something for a really low price. When I got my first one in last month I was actually really surprised at how much you get in the vial for less than $15 a month! The other really great thing about the company is that their site is designed to help you find the kind of scent that you like, or in my case the kind that I’m not going to have an allergy attack with by just opening the packaging. You can use their smart search to combine occasions, scent type, seasons and more to create a list of perfumes that fit your needs. Then add them all to your queue for a hassle free subscription.
The carrying case is pretty amazing too. Not only is it designed to make applying perfume easy but it actually allows you to take it with you without fear of a bottle breaking or spilling in your bag. It’s perfect when you’re going to be out and on the go all day and need to refresh it!
There’s also a perfume of the month feature and just in case you forget to add to your queue, they’ll send you that so you don’t miss out. It gets even better because they have a colognes available too so there’s something for everyone! Does this sound good to you? Subscribe to Scentbird today and get a free perfume!
Anyone that’s known me for a while is aware that I have a love affair when it comes to MAC Cosmetics. I’ve been almost exclusively using the brand for makeup for about 1o years and fell in love with it back when I was a junior in high school. I go through phases with makeup so it never really paid off for me to experiment with other brands. Currently I’m getting out of a bare minimum look phase and starting to get back into wearing more eye and lip colors.
In my new adventures with makeup I thought it would be awesome to try out some new brands and new types of products. The first step, of course, was hitting up the Sephora site. We have one here in Charleston now but it’s much safer for me to shop online instead of wanting to buy everything in the store. I did a little research into what I wanted to try first but had been putting off the order until I got and email about free perfume. Of course I had to take advantage of that!
The first big change I made was trying out the Make Up For Ever Pro Finish powder. So far I haven’t noticed a huge difference between in and the MAC powder that I’d been using other than I feel like I color matched better with Make Up For Ever.
The Marc Jacobs birthday gift was a great add on, however I’m not fully impressed with the eye liner. While it goes on smoothly it smudges very easily for me with just wear. The lipstick however feels great and I love it!
As for the Ralph Lauren perfume, I’m in love! I’m going to be doing a full post on perfumes soon so I’ll save it for then!
I’m currently running a special now through the end of the month. Anyone that spends $25 (before tax and shipping) and selects my January Sales event will get $5 to spend next month on new products! There are lots of great flash sales going on throughout the month and don’t forget about the Valentine’s Day products also available. Those are only available in limited quantities and won’t last long.
I’m putting together sample packages to go out next week for anyone interested in trying Perfectly Posh. If you’re interested please fill out this form. What you will receive is 5-6 sample sized products. Each package will include a Chunk sample of your choice.
