Macy's Beauty Box beautyjudy

I bought this. I didn’t know Macy’s had a Beauty Box subscription service until this summer. So I signed up, figuring, for $15, why not? I buy makeup and beauty products from Macy’s and like many of the brands. Above is the first box I received with my subscription – August’s box. Included was: Tarte Maracuja …

KBShimmer Picture Perfect Cuticle Cream

Disclaimer: Some PR samples, see bottom. I used up a lot of products this month! As part of my 40 Before 40 adventure, I also pledged to use more of the samples I’ve been given, because they hang around and I haven’t been traveling as much as I used to, so they don’t get used …

Yves Saint Laurent In Love Again – Fleur de la Passion edition

I still have an almost-empty, well-loved bottle of In Love Again sitting in my bedroom. I can’t bear to throw it out, but I can’t use it anymore, either. It …
