GlamST : Looks + new eye features LAUNCH

I am very excited to share a little about an amazing website I came across through BrandBacker.  The site is GlamST and it is described as a positive community of women that feel comfortable with their choices and who they are.  Try virtual looks, try products you would never dare to try, find your real beauty, help others find the best looks, have fun and give advice!

What I Love

What I love most about this site is that you get to upload a photo and try on real makeup products virtually.  You can change the shades and products to create a flawless look and you are left with the names and shades of products needed to create the look at home!  Here is a picture of a look that I created on myself.

Creating Looks

You can create, save, and share looks.  Click on +info and see all the similar looks of the community. Give a gogirl! and let know that you love that look for her.  There are also new eyeshadow and eyreliner features available.  You can always change shades and delete the products that you do not want in order to find your perfect look!




GlamST's Message

We need you to pursue this vision together,love what we do and help us to be better at this, so we can create the perfect platform that every one of us wants.

About the Brand
GlamST is co-foundered by two remarkable woman, telematics engineers from Uruguay, South America. As women engineers in a male-dominated world, they decided to bring innovation to a problem women face everyday: choosing make that's best for you and spotting the latest trends.

They began their start-up 2.5 years ago, when we were finishing our engineering degrees from university. They started it as a project and then transformed it into our business and passion for the last couple of years.

At first, they coded the first version of the software, which L'Oreal uses in our country; it was a point of sale version of the virtual tester, which automatically captures a picture of the user. The product has now evolved to GlamST: an online platform, which aims to create a new way of selecting and buying products.

They believe that they can create a new process of selection of makeup online and that our platform will allow women to share, discuss, help, entertain and identify the best beauty products for each women.

BA STAR Review

Hello, Lovelies!  I just had the privilege of trying an eyeshadow palette by BA Star, thanks to Brand Backer.  I was sent the Smoky Palette and Eyeshadow Base to test and review for My Beauty Boxes.  Although the materials were provided to me, the opinions in this post are my own.

The Products

About the Products

The BA STAR Eye Shadow Palette has high pigment colors that are long lasting.  
The palette also comes in Natural shade combinations and they retail for only $8.75 each.  The included primer (also $8.75) makes the colors shimmer and shine even more than when worn alone (see photo below).  The BA STAR line is designed for performances.  If you are a singer, dancer, cheerleader, etc., these colors all have a shimmer and are perfect for the stage!  

Smoky Palette Swatches

Here are the shades both with and without the primer.  As you can tell, the primer gives a bit of a deeper hue and seem to have a more creamy consistency.  

Where to Buy

You can purchase this and other amazing BA STAR products HERE.

Free samples are available if you are a coach, trainer, cheerleader, blogger, etc.  

Other BA STAR Products Available

BA STAR also features makeup cases, stickers, headbands, makeup, etc. at unbeatable prices!  If you are ever on stage or enjoy daring makeup, I highly recommend looking into this site.

I came across an amazing brand of jewelry thanks to Little Black Bag.  I was introduced to earrings by Cate & Chloe and I
have to tell you, I absolutely fell in LOVE!  I decided to contact the company to inquire about a subscription service that they offer and they were kind enough to send me a sample box to review for you lovely readers.

I usually start out telling you a little more about the company and services offered, but I was so blown away by the quality of jewelry that I received that I first have to show you a quick picture so you can see just why I'm so enamoured.

Okay, so now that you have a peek at these beauties, let me tell you a little more about the subscription service. ;)

Cate & Chloe also has an amazing referral program.  If you can get just one friend to sign up, you can get 10% off of your monthly fees.  If you can get 5 friends to sign up, you will get 50% off of your monthly fees for as long as they are enrolled.  How amazing is that?? :)  Your friends wil even get 10% off of their first month.

How Do They Decide What to Send?

You will take a style quiz upon signing up. This will include questions such as what type of jewelry do you wear, who is your style icon, etc.

What Will My Package Look Like?

This is the part that blew me away.  I was so impressed with the personalization of the package I was sent.  Everything was in a beautiful pillow envelope wrapped in gorgeous ribbon.  Inside the box was adorable polka dot paper, a handwritten envelope with information inside, and a sturdy jewelry box that incased the most gorgeous pair of earrings that I now own.  These earrings are valued at $125.

Check Out My Goodies ;)

Why I Love These Earrings

Not only are these earrings stunning, the outer circle of diamonds are removeable so that you can wear the single stud alone.  These earrings immediately catch the light and make them almost impossible to get a great shot of.  Trust me, I was NOT disappointed. :)

NYC Expert Last Lipcolor Review

I received a GORGEOUS NYC Expert Last Lipcolor to use and review in my Influenster univoxbox.  I fell in love with the pretty fuschia shade first, but there was so much more to love!

How much did I love it, exactly?  Enough to go buy two more tubes! :)

Why I love NYC Expert Last Lipcolor
The first thing I noticed about this lip product upon application was how smooth and creamy it felt.  It was not heavy, but instead made my lips feel moisturized.  I also love that the color really is long lasting.  For the incredible price, this is a great buy!  I also love the varitety of shades offered.  I picked my extra products up at CVS for only $1.99.  

*I received this product for free for reviewing purposes, but the opinions are all my own.

Clarity Vitamin C Serum for Face Review and Coupon Code

I received a bottle of the Clarity Vitamin C Serum for Face to review and share with my readers.  This serum helps smooth the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

About the Product
Clarity Vitamin C Serum antioxidant blend features Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid, and Herbal Extracts, shown to smooth the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and treat dark spots. Stimulate collagen production for radiant and youthful looking skin.

My Review
I really love the way this serum smells and feels.  It has a fresh, citrus scent that I expected.  The serum was a bit thinner than I thought it might be, but that is a definite plus in my book.  I don't care much for putting anything heavy on my face.  The serum was very easy to smooth on and really seemed to seep into my skin.  The first time I used it, my skin felt smooth, moisturized, and glowing.  I was pleasantly surprised that it did not leave my skin feeling oily.  I love the natural ingredients as well.

The morning after my first use, my skin was extremely soft.  Over the next few days, I noticed more even skin tone and a healthy glow.  I have high expectations for this product with extended use.

A Coupon Code For You
The company was so excited to share their product with you that they are extending a 15% coupon code just for you!  Just enter EUN15OFF at checkout.

Where to Buy
You can purchase this amazing product HERE.
