Hello my lovely Obsessionista's. Well fall is upon us now. I am located where it is supposed to be a frost or freeze this weekend. What are your plans for this weekend. Maybe heading to haunted houses or pumpkin patches. I have been trying out Too faced Born This Way foundation, and a drug store Maybelline foundation. I will be posting a review and pictures with me wearing this soon. If you are following me on instagram you have seen some sneak peaks already. I planned to have this post up 3 weeks ago. They had come in broken. I was trying to be nice and wait back from the company what they were going to do. I am going to tell you dates and time frame of when I contacted Zahra company and they replied back. I can say at this point I am very disappointed in this company.
This photo was taken with the damage in the back of the spinner. Below you will see a up close picture of the damage.
I got super lucky when I was on facebook and heard about a huge sale. I have been watching ZahraBeautyStore for if they would run another discount and sales on some of their product. The did run a small sale a couple months ago but I missed it by one day. So the next time they ran a sale I planned to pick up one of the spinners to try out. I had hoped to get the bigger spinner. I was happy with this one until I saw them come in broken. After hearing about the sale I went to their instagram page and saw 30% off everything in the store. Which is really rare for them to do.
I picked up two of the smaller spinners and thought I could put my high end lipsticks or chubby sticks in one. Then the other one could be used for my lesser of high end lipsticks, chubby sticks, lip-liners in the other. I wanted to get the lip gloss condominium angel or jet black with tray. Unfortunately they were all sold out. I didn't want to miss out on these. So I got the spinner tower in rose instead of the condominium. The spinner tower holds 81 lipsticks or chubby sticks. You can use the top to put some of your bigger tubes that do no fit in the sides. Now some you will learn are just a little bit to short for the hole. What I did was take either a piece of bubble wrapped rolled, or you could use a piece of pop corn peanut. I personally like the bubble wrap better to fix those openings that are too small.
I contacted the company about them being broken. I was given two options and chose to have it replaced. I am still waiting on the replacement. I am now going on a month since I got it. Below is a time line of my communications or lack of with the company.
I sent them an email and on their site for contact us. I contacted them for the first time on September 15th. Then got a reply within 24 hours on September 16th. I had a few things come up but I emailed them back on the 21st after the weekend. Then the next contact came back from them on within another 24 hours on 22nd. So then they gave me a couple of options. I choose to have them replaced. I contacted them back on the 23rd with my choice. Then again on the 29th with no responses back. I still had not heard anything from then and contacted them again October 5th. At this time I am getting frustrated with the lack of communications. The same day I told them I am going to go live with blog post I got a message finally from Executive Account Manager. This is the last contact I have had with them. They told me in that last email the email system went down. I then remembered a hurricane was down near there. I am not sure if the hurricane hit them. I once again replied back to the email on October 6th. I didn't hear anything again and now I have also emailed them again on October 14th. I have waited long enough. As you can see there is a big lack of communication on their part.
I will put up an full update what happens with this company. Whether it is positive or negative response. I am hoping this is just one glitch that has happened.
Right now all I can say it is a lack of communication from Zahra company is frustrating. I can understand Internet problems. I just feel they should of gotten back in contact with me by now. Once again the last communication I have had was now almost 11 days ago. I do hope they are sending out my replacements or contacting me asap. I really like a lot of things in there store but I am not sure at this time if I will purchased from them again. I guess a lot will be determined how they handle my situation.
I will also let you know I am not sure if it is every order over $50. I did have to sign for the package. It was a surprise as in my tracking they sent out didn't state this. I am glad for the security but would of been nice had they sent an email with saying you must be home to get your package. As we require a signature. Not all of use are home all the time.
I am not sure if the damage to the spinners was before packing or after it was shipped.
Now I have put in pictures to show you the ZahraBeautyStore company really did a great job wrapping it. I just feel sometimes the us postal lately is not taking great care of packages. Below are a couple of pictures to show how well it was packed inside a bigger box. This is not the first thing to come through the postal town down there that came in broken and damaged.
Two boxes put into a bigger box on top of large bubble plastic. Then they wrap that on top of the two individuals boxes. I am not sure if it was broke when it was made or shipped.
Below is more pictures to show how well it was wrapped after pulling it out of the white box inside of the bigger box. You will see three layers were used to wrap the spinner.
The cost of the one I got in rose is $99.00 and well worth it. I will warn you that you could incur shipping fees. I would suggest if you are wanting one of these and would like to get it at a discount to keep an eye out. I am not affiliated with this at all. I paid for this out of my own money. Any discount I got was a discount available to the public. If I am a lucky one and get a discount code I will be sure to share that with all my #obsessionistas. #storage #lipstickholder #eyestickholder #lipglosses #lipstains
If you would like to purchase your own spinner in rose or any other color they have with bling or without bling. Here is the website to their store.
Have a nice weekend and see you next week for a review on higher end foundation and drugstore foundation and primers. See which one one or if you could get by with a drugstore primer with a high end foundation or high end primer with drugstore foundation.
Have a good weekend and next week I will post about the Zahra spinner I got. Find out if they replaced my broke one?
I normally don't put this up. This is such a huge deal. When walmart you can go buy a bag of 80 pieces for almost $10 a bag. This deal is 10 bags and a 100 pieces per bag. It is not knock off candy either. I don't know how long this deal is going to be good for. I would jump over there now. It comes out to $2.90 a bag. If you have prime it is free shipping. For those of us with kids and wondering where is or who is giving candy out to our children coming from. I am a safe one and just buy a bag of candy for them to eat not all at one sitting. I let them go trick or treat but I am cautious on it to. If you don't trick or treat what a deal to hide them for snacks or treats for ourselves. Ps I make no money by you getting them or going to the site. I just wanted to share for all my #obsessionistas #candy #sweet #awesomedeal
If you are already not getting colourpop you are missing out. They are the drugstore prices online. They just released out a code good for $5 off anything over $30 on any collection set. I am going to screen shot the email information for my #obsessionistas. I have some I just got from the last sale. Then of course right after the sale they launched new fall sets and those I just wanted. So I picked them up tonight. It really is a great product. Remember with Colourpop there is not returns. So if you don't like a color you are out of luck. If there is something you don't like you can always donate it. Just remember it is not like you are out $25 or $50 for a single product. Prices ranges on eye pigments from $5 to cheeks and highlighters $8 and lippies $5 or $6. So if you are wanting to try something out get a collection and pick up an extra lippie or eye and bam you have $30 and over it is free shipping.
I do have soon a review on some of the products I have got in the mail. I will tell you how I use them and what brushes.
Code is collectioncrushes
Now it doesn't say how long the sale it good for. I just got the email at 9 p.m. on September 29th 2015.
I am not affiliated with Colourpop at all. I am going to put link to there website. I won't make any money by clicking on it. If you have bought colourpop before what have you gotten. Anything that you highly suggest.
Colourpop This is for any of the collection sets they have. The email is from mine but picture is all colourpop.
Hello my lovely Obsessionista's. I have been getting the Walmart quarterly box now for a year. This started a year ago. I have stuck with this box. I can tell you the first box was decent. After that the second was crappy just little samples. The third was better with an actual lipstick. Fourth not impressed. I am going to Show you pictures of each of the quarterly boxes. Let me know if you would like to see more of these. I will admit there are different boxes for each age group. I am in the above 35 years old. Most of the ones I have seen under 35 years old are not bad. If you are above 35 years old I can't say this is worth the money. Now I know we only pay the shipping for these boxes. While I am grateful for that, I am also disappointed in the products.
I know with new programs and subscription boxes there is always a learning curve. It is my hope that Walmart is reading this post. May they take this as a suggestion of what myself and many of the older than 35 year old's would like in a box. I can tell you in my opinion what I am seeing in the under 35 year old's is a nicer boxes than my age group. Just because someone is in the thirty's does not mean we want to always get anti aging products. I do like to try new things but when the young ones are getting a full lipsticks and we get anti-aging or foil packets. Most of the foil packets to me felt like it was lets throw in our leftovers. I am a blogger and always get foil packets in the mail so in my opinion I felt like in a couple of the boxes I didn't mean as much as let's say someone under 35 did. I am being honest and saying I was jealous of the boxes most of them got. All I am saying is just think a little more on the products that go in there. Maybe do a anti-aging product every few boxes not every single one. Another way Walmart could handle this is for over 35 send out a survey for us to send back. From what I have seen there is at least 3 boxes for the over 35. I would suggest a box for those who want anti-aging, another for who would like makeup and another for maybe newbies who just signed up or who don't care what they get. You could do a survey on under 35 to. I am glad to see that Walmart is doing a very affordable beauty box. It is my hope that they can take suggestions I am sure they have heard and fix it in time for winter box.
Let's start off with picture of the first one and work our way to the newest one I just got.
As you can see I got mostly anti-aging and some foil packets. I don't mind some anti-aging products but just because someone is over 35 doesn't mean that is all we want it. I love and as you can see with my blog makeup! I honestly think if Walmart does a survey of the clients who are getting this box it would help with confusion.
I am not one to bash a company on the first boxes. I have now given this a full year of samples.
I am going to talk a little about the last box. I can tell you I will use the razor. The razor is a great option to have for when I am going out of town for a few days. The lotion Curel is nice size to get. The Dove is great for short getaways. There is an additional coupon for the Dove deodorant. The Roc I have never used so we will see. It is a good size product that I will be trying out. In this box you can see only one foil packet instead of like most of the boxes being foil packets.
If was to grade the subscription service so far then I would give this a C. One I don't need many foil samples. I get those with Macy's, Nordstorms, Ulta, Sephora. What I would like to see is a for the company of Walmart to say if these are going to be foil boxes, deluxe samples or could be a combination of samples. I hope more companies will work with them. It is always nice to get something I have never tried or sometimes heard of.
I want to know from my readers one are you getting the box.
Are you happy with it?
Over 35 or Under 35 years old.
If you are not getting it do you think based on my boxes you would stay with the program. I know with every program it has a learning curve. It is my hope that Walmart would of did a 1 year anniversary box.

A. Keep it
B. Cancel it
Hello my lovely Obsessionista's. I hope you are having a wonderful week. I know some people are having some concerns about indie makers. I am here today to show a indie company I have featured on the blog before. This is a indie maker who I have used and am currently using. I feel comfortable sharing a new collection that was just launched.
The new collection is called Sailor Moon Crystal collection with five new polishes by #MarblesForPolish. This a collection that contains crelly's and jelly's. They are located in United States. Currently Marbles For Polish ships to United States and Canada. All of the polishes are 5 free. While you are in the shop look at all the different products. Today's polishes is a PR samples. That were sent to me to review and give my honest thoughts on.
The new collection is called Sailor Moon Crystal with five new polishes. There is three crelly''s and two jelly's. I have one that stood out to me but all are just as gorgeous. I am going to have pictures to show you how they would look like indoors in a light-box with flash and outdoors. Some of the outside pictures were pushing the lighting of the day. I took them throughout the day and into the late of day at almost dark during sunset.
Fire Soul (Mars)
Fire Soul is a purple jelly with small gold and medium red holo. Also red crystal and rainbow iridescent glitters throughout the bottle.
Polish being held is a mini from the #sailormooncrystalcollection in outside light.

Aqua Mirage (Mercury)
The teal one is called Aqua Mirage is crelly with silver holo, medium matte neon blue, small glass blue and rainbow iridescent glitters.

Flower Hurricane (Jupiter)
This is a lavender pink crelly with silver and medium green holo, glass green and rainbow iridescent glitters.

This is a denim blue color. Love and Beauty (Venus) is a egyptian blue jelly with gold holo, medium dandelion matte, red crystal and rainbow iridescent glitters. The dandelion is a golden orange shade.
Polish being held is a mini from this collection in the early day sun outside. I have a little shade on the right side. I was making sure the full sun got the polish.
Up close swatch picture. Moon Crystal (Moon)
This is a strawberry pink crelly. Moon Crystal (Moon) is a strawberry pink crelly with gold holo, medium blue and small yellow matte, and rainbow iridescent. This is the only one taken in light-box with no flash. That is all natural light.
Polish being held is a mini from this collection in the after sunset outside. This is taken with a flash. I have to say this is one of my favorites for the color and they way this picture turned out.
Up close swatch picture.
You can tell with the jelly's they are thinner. What you can do with jelly's is take a creme nail polish and layer it. With the crelly's applies a little thicker.
I have used on all of this collection #marblesforpolish colors three coats and top coat of the #ellageetopcoat. When using the top coat of #Ellagee I could use one coat and almost completely smooth feeling. With two coats there was no grit to worry about. The wear time when paired with a base and top coat for me was at right at a week. I was a little rougher by cleaning and using chemicals. Even with that they stayed on well. Just a little wear on the tips of the nails.
Hello and good evening my lovely Obsessionista's. Today's post is going to be a a natural mist. There is a couple of ways you can use this product. I have used this a few different ways. I am going to tell you how I have using this. Then I will tell you the other ways you could use the Pure Mist diffuser.
I have been using the diffuser with water as a humidifier. Another way I am using the diffuser is with essential oils. The oils I am using give a calming smell to the room and in return relaxes myself before bedtime. I have put a few drops of the of the essential oil in the diffuser. The size room I have been using this 17x20. I haven't had any problems with just using the one diffuser. It puts enough of a scent and mist into the air. I can tell a big difference in how I am breathing now that I am using this. Before it would be harder to breathe. I suffer from allergies and it is hard to find anything to help with that. I feel comfortable suggesting this if you have someone who needs the extra help. If you have any questions check with a doctor first if you are going to use this to help with breathing problems.
I have been personally been using this in child(s) room for someone who is currently using a nebulizer treatments. Now I am not a doctor and this has worked for myself. Since I have done this my child (s) is not having to have their nebulizer treatments as much.
Last way I have used this is just to be a nightlight. If you are that stage where the child wants to have a light but it is bedtime. Then you could use this as a night light for them with the fine misting going on at the same time. This Pure Mist diffuser has the color of lights in blue, red, green lights and give the feel of a relaxing environment. I am going to show below pictures of what it would look like in the dark. What comes in the package. Then you will get to see what it looks like taken apart. It is easy to put together.
Some of the other ways you can benefit from using this product. If you have a not so great smelling room. Should you have someone who smokes it helps with that odor. Should you and your partner just want a soft and casual mood enhancer that is great for that.
What do you get when you buy the Pure Mist diffuser.
A container to use to pour water into the device. I would suggest filtered water. I have found with filtered water doesn't have build up as easily. With non filtered water could put extra minerals in it.
It comes with a ac plug. So you can put it on the shelf and plug into the wall. I wish it also had an option of batteries to. It would make it easier to put on a high shelf and not worry about it falling over and spilling out the water or oil.
