Lipstick of the Week

Hello Passionistas!!!

This week I have been rocking my Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick, in the color Veronica and Mac lip pencils, in the color Plum.

The Plum lip pencil is a go to make up essential for me. Since I love nude colors, plum goes good with just about every lip color I wear. Mac lip pencil lasts a long time. It’s well worth $18.

I don’t normally purchase Anastasia Beverly Hills products. But ULTA was running a sale back in July on the brand- buy one get on free. I thought it was a great deal on a $22 Lipstick, so I purchased the Veronica liquid lipstick along with another matte lipstick that I will feature another week. The formula spreads nicely, making it easy to apply and it lasts a long time. I often reapply after drinking anything. Best of all it’s easy to wipe off.

What other lipstick colors from Anastasia Beverly Hills do you recommend? Comment below.

My 1st Hello Fresh Box

Hello Passionista!

I am excited to share my first Hello Fresh Box with you.

So, a friend on my mine recently started using Hello Fresh and shared her coupon code with me- for $40 off my 1st box. I downloaded the app and registered for my first box on a Friday and my box arrived on Monday.

There are different plans you can choose from, there are also feature that allow you to  select foods you wish not to receive. I selected the Classic Meal Plan, which includes 3 meals for 2 people. The app shows you the meals that you will be getting immediately. Here are my 3 (egg + nut free) meals :

  • Chicken Sausage Flatbread Pizza with Broiled Zucchini and Fresh Oregano
  • Beef Chiles Rellenos with Poblano Peppers and Chipotle Sauce
  • Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Cucumber Tomato Salad

The box comes complete with recipe cards for each meal and the app also stores all recipes in the “my cookbook” feature.

The ingredients for each meal comes in separate recyclable paper bags. Here’s the ingredients for my 3 classic meals:

Everything you need is included, expect the pots, pans and stove of course.

I’ve already cooked my first meal and it was delicious. I mean, I can cook but I’m bad at finding good recipes. So having the ingredients sent to me and a detailed recipe card helps a lot.

ULTA Beauty is my Favorite

Hello Passionistas!!!

I recently stopped by ULTA to pick up a few goodies. I wanted to try some new facial cleansers and I’ve really been interested in trying a peel mask. So, Here’s what I found in ULTA:

Formula 10.0.5 Be Berry Awake Energizing Peel Mask, Yumberry + Pomegranate

This is the first peel mask I have ever tried. It is a gel. So the gel and perry effect makes the formula very thick. All it takes is one thin coat. Once applied it dries pretty quick. The peel process is easy, painless, and no hassle. After the product was all peeled off, my skin instantly felt different.

Formula 10.0.6 Keep Your Cool Skin-Calming Gel Mask, Coconut +Cucumber

This mask feels so good. The gel is thick but not hard to spread across your face. Its meant to reduce the appearance of harsh breakouts. Now, I don’t experience a lot of breakouts on my face- but heat has a way of making my skin feel and look stressed. The cucumber in the product is meant to help calm your skin to feel cool, calm and under control.

ULTA is my favorite because overtime I go in this store, they have some type of ULTA beauty sale that excites me. This time it was “spend $16.50 or more on any ULTA beauty products and get a FREE gift”. I love FREE gifts, so these types of sales are targeted for people like me. I like to try lower- end makeup brands and products before buying the more high-end brand, just to see how I like the product and how it looks on me.  Here’s my bonus goodies:

ULTA Beauty Matte Lip Crayon, in the color Soiree

ULTA Beauty Matte Lipstick, in the color Mulberry

The FREE gift was this makeup wallet filled with Eyeliner, Eyebrow Pencil, Shadow sticks , oil blotting Sheets, and Pink Satin Hair Tie.


Side Bar: So, a lot has been going on and I have gotten off schedule with blogging. I recently started a YouTube channel, It’s something I’ve been wanting to introduce to PassionLocked.com. Be sure to check them out and subscribe on YouTube. I’m trying to find the best compromises in my weekly schedule to set specific days for blogs and blogs. You all can look forward to blogs on Sunday’s and Vlogs on Wednesday.
