Makeup Review: Younique

DISCLOSURE: I was given a free item in exchange for this review. Which then lead me to also win a free lip gloss! All opinions are my very own!

As I've said before, I'm not a beauty blogger, but when one of my besties approached me asking me to blog about her new adventure into selling Younique make-up, I couldn't resist the idea of a few makeovers and a super fun photo shoot with friends!

Make-Up Review: Younique || Becoming Sabra Gilbert

Never heard of Younique? It is a make up company working to not only sell high quality, beautiful makeup, but also support women. Their products are much more than just paste to put over your face in the name of beauty. Younique's products are scientifically formulated to not only make you beautiful, but nourish your skin as well! Another plus? They are NEVER tested on animals!

As an animal lover, that is always a giant plus for me! But not only does Younique work to provide cruelty-free makeup, they have started a foundation to support those who have been sexually abused. Through this foundation, they provide a retreat for those who have been sexually abused to find healing with support from others and learning skills to help them on their own. Younique also provides education for parents to help them protect their children from sexual abuse. 

And just look at the beautiful results!

This makeup is extremely smooth to put on! And I was insanely surprised by how wonderful the makeup felt on my face and how it made my face feel! I was a little worried when Alyssa started pulling out a lot of face makeup, as I'm not that big of a fan of weighing my face down with a ton of makeup, but it actually felt ridiculously light on my face.

My personal favorite product was the 3D fiber lashes+!! My eyelashes are insanely short! And these naturally lengthen your lashes through the help of tiny fibers that can build on and on and on. I also use my lip gloss on a  regular basis!

Jamberry Nail's Reveiw

Sabra GilbertComment

DISCLAIMER: I have received this product in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own and honest.

So a month or so ago, I received an email from Amanda, a Jamberry Consultant, and she had picked out the perfect Jamberry nails for me! I saw the picture of these wonderful horse nails and I had to have them! I had been looking at Jamberry nails for a little while, but I just hadn't taken the leap into buying them yet. 

GUYS!! I LOVE THEM!! It's soo nice to not have to worry about bumping your nails within seconds of finishing your nails and ruining them. I am the queen of impatience and messing up wet nails. As soon as I'm done with painting my nails, I start moving around to the next thing on my to do list. With these nails, I don't have to worry about messing up my nails at all!

While it was originally something that I figured would be a big time suck, it actually saves me time! By the time I get my nails done, I can just walk away and get other things done! When I paint my nails, I have to then just sit around and wait for my nails to dry. Which takes forever.

So not only does it not mess up within seconds, but it's super easy to do! It takes maybe ten minutes to get all of your nails done with a few extra minutes here and there if you are a perfectionist. All you have to do is cut, heat, place, trim, and buff our the edges.

They're easy, They're fast. And they have wonderful designs too! I've shared a few that I love on my Facebook page and Amanda shared a few in her Q&A post a few weeks ago. But make sure to check them out for yourself too!!

Now that I've ranted and raved about everything that I love about these nails, I'm going to be honest with you about the one thing that I hate about them. I am an avid nail picker when I am stressed out or nervous (like when taking an exam). And these things are some of the easiest things to pick off if you are determined enough. But it's about my only complaint and to be honest, if you aren't a nail picker than it really shouldn't be a problem.

Go ahead and get your own! Shop

Review: Campus VoxBox

Sabra GilbertComment
All items were given to me by Influenster in return for a reveiw. All opinions stated here are my own and honest in order to you, my readers, and future customers the best feedback possible.

When I got the campus voxbox, I WAS SOOOOOO EXCITED! It was full of things that I had wnated to try and wasn't just sample sized. I know that sounds wierd, but most of the boxes are only sample size products so you don't get the full out experiance of trying them out. All of these products, except for the hair products, were full sized.

I really don't know which was my favorite product, the Jergans Instant Sun or the Softlips cube.

I'll start with the Softlips cube. I'm a total EOS girl. Love love love that little ball. This cube made me put that ball away and I was all about that Softlips cube. It really keeps the moisture in your lips that doesn't disappear after a few hours. It stays forever and smells good and feels wonderful going on. I truely love the cube over the stick because I have a harder time loosing weird shaped things than a stick. Though I will totally admit to loosing my ball and buying another one to photograph. The fact that I actually went out to replace something (and it was for way more than just photographs!) should tell you that I loved the product!

Now for the Jergans Instant Sun tanning mousse. I have never had so many people compliment me on my tan, even when I had an actual real tan!!!! It was so easy to apply and it dried so fast, it was ridiculous! I loved it so much! And I didn't have to apply it a million times for it to look good! I just had to put it on once and it looked great. I really reccomend it to anyone else that has a horrible time getting an actual tan like I do.

I really liked all of the products that I've been able to try, the St Ives face scrub has done wonders for my face! It makes it so soft and smells wonderful! My only complaint is that it was really hard to wash off and so I could only use it in the shower where it was easy to put my entire face under water and really get at it.

I'm not a fan of sour candy, but my husband loves it! Warheads and Sourpatch Kids are his go to candy choices. He LOVES the straws! he basically ate half the bag in one sitting. I tried one but it seriously only gets extreme reactive faces from the sourness, I can't handle extreme flavors at all.

I haven't had the oppertunity to try the hair straightening shampoo and conditioner yet. But I am excited too!
