Hello Lovelies! 
I thought I would do something different than usual and do a post about me <3 
So here it goes! 

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally straight, but not straight enough that I don't need a hair straightener.

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I am bad and dye it myself! I have huge trust issues when it comes to going to the salon after so many horror stories of my hair getting absolutely ruined! Maybe I will do a post later on of some of my salon horror stories for you ;)

3. Do you wear your hair the same style everyday, or do you change it?
It depends honestly, if I'm just staying in I will ponytail it! If I am going out I will straighten it, and on some occasions I will break out the curling iron!

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do my own for sure, I don't like gel nails and so I don't see the point of having someone else paint my nails with regular polish when I can do that myself.

5. How often do you change your nail polish?
I change mine about every other day! I like to change it up a lot :)

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
I am usually a summer toe nail painter.

7. How long does it take for you to put on makeup?
It depends on the look I'm going for, but usually it takes around 15-20 minutes.
8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I do half my face first, then my eyes, and then the rest of my face.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I am definitely a collector. I buy so much but still always tend to go for certain products. I need to stop collecting haha

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I despise falsies, mostly because I suck at putting them on and I always get glue in my eyes lol

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
No, I try to let me face breathe especially if I'm not going anywhere. 

12. Do you wear makeup when you're home alone or with family?
When I'm alone I don't usually wear makeup unless I'm trying out some products. Depending on the family members I won't wear make up.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
The only time I don't wear makeup outside of the house is when I literally have no time to put it on, but then I usually slab something on my face in the car.

14. How many high-end products do you have?
It depends on what you count as high end, MAC/Urban Decay/Smashbox, then I have a ton.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
I mostly decide as I am getting ready.

16. How often do you change your handbag?
I change my handbags all the time. I am guilty of having WAY too many. I could go 3/4 weeks of changing my handbag every day without re-using one of them. I honestly need to get rid of some.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I wake up usually between 8-10 and go to bed anywhere between 9pm-2am

18. How often or when do you workout?
I have been a workout slacker lately and really need to get my butt back into shape.

19. Left handed or right handed?

20. How tall are you?

21. Do you speak any foreign languages?
I can speak bits and pieces of a couple different languages but can't full on speak another language besides English.

22. How many pets do you have?
I don't have any pets, I travel back and forth between one end of the country to the other side too much. I wouldn't want to put an animal through that much traveling.

23. How often are you on Blogger?
I know I don't post often but I do go on it almost everyday to read other people's blog posts!

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
I do, I don't know why but I like to see what other people have to say :)

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
I do! I usually add it to my Sephora cart or if it isn't on the Sephora site I will add it to a list in a little notebook I always keep with me!

26. How did you come up with your blog name?
I came up with Beauty Junky, because I am one!

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
 I honestly suck when it comes to photos (As you can tell when looking through my posts) I either use an older digital camera I have or my galaxy S3 cell phone.
28. How often do you clean your house?
I clean it almost every day, my 4 year old goes through our house like a tornado and can make a mess in a second!

29. What's your favorite color?

30. Do you swear?
Now that my son picks up on saying things everyone else does, I try not to.

31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
It is 11:40pm so I should be going to bed but I will probably put on some Netflix (I have been addicted to watching Charmed lately).


Hello Lovelies!

I (finally) got my Birchbox in the mail! I know it is only the 19th, but I swear everyone else that I know gets one of these so fast and I'm the last to get one haha. Patience is not my virtue when it comes to beauty subscriptions! If you don't know what Birchbox is, it is a monthly beauty subscription that costs $10 per month and you get 4-5 beauty items! Want to join Birchbox, CLICK HERE.

Everyone always asks me, which beauty sub is your favorite? Birchbox is hands down my favorite! No, they don't send out a ton of Make-up like Ipsy and no they don't send out full sized products very much, but I like the items that I get! Birchbox is one of the only subscription services that I find items I fall in love with and purchase a full size of later!

Now enough talk, here is what I got in my March Birchbox:

Michael Todd True Organics Citrus Cream Moisturizer 1.3 FL OZ
I love this brand and was so excited to see that it was in my box! I tried this out after my shower and my face is so smooth and smells so nice! I will definitely repurchase this in a full size bottle when I'm finished with the sample. 


 theBalm How 'Bout Them Apples? in Pie. First of all before we get to the product, look at that packaging! It is so cute, and I mean common look at that hotty with his shirt off! The color pay off of this is really nice! I will be using this more as a cream blush than a lip balm.

Omni Potent Duosity Double Whipped Repairing Treatment (each packet is 0.34 FL OZ). I'm never excited to see foil packets but at least I will get two uses out of this! I am also happy about this sample because I love hair treatments due to having damaged hair.

Benefit Bigger Than BB Big Easy in 02 Light. This is a liquid to powder cream that is supposed to work like a BB cream. I'm honestly annoyed with this product because there isn't enough in it to cover half of my face. How am I supposed to know if I like it if I can get a single full use out of it? Tsk Tsk

Air Repair Rescue Balm All-Purpose Skin Salve & Lip Balm. I used this as a lip balm today and I like it minus the smell, it has a medicated lemony scent. I will decide if I like it enough to repurchase it after a few days of use.

 Last but not least, my extra from Birchbox this month is a Ghirardelli Intense Dark Cherry Tango chocolate! I didn't eat this because I'm not a cherry person but I'm sure someone else in the house will love it! 

Overall I am happy with this box minus the Benefit sample. I'm a huge fan of Benefit but that sample is a huge disappointment.


Hello Lovelies!

It is that time of the month, my Ipsy bag is here! If you don't know what Ipsy is, it is a monthly beauty subscription that costs $10 per month and they send you 4-5 beauty items that will either be samples, deluxe samples or even full sized! Want to join Ipsy, CLICK HERE. 

Here are the items I got in my March Ipsy:

 This months bag was created by an artist in California, I think it is great the Ipsy is working with local artists! The bag isn't my cup of tea personally, don't get me wrong I love art, just not this kind..

Nicole by O.P.I. Roughless Sand Polish in On What Grounds? I haven't been very big on the sand polish craze, but I am willing to give this a try because it is a really pretty blue that is perfect for the Spring!

Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer 0.4 FL OZ This primer has a bit of a bronze tint to it so I'm a little hesitant to try it due to the fact that I could be Snow White's long lost sister in the pale department. I do like the Pixi brand from what I have tried though, so I will be trying this on a day when I don't have plans just to make sure it doesn't clash with my skin tone.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready. I actually like this lipstick color! It is one of the only lip colors that Ipsy has sent that I can wear! Yay!!

 Be A Bombshell Eyeshadow quad in Bora Bora. The colors are pretty but unfortunately I'm not a huge fan of this brand or the ingredients in their products. I wish Ipsy wouldn't put their products in their bags every single month...

Hello Lovelies!

Ipsy's second sneak peak of the month was just released! 

 MARCH GLAM BAG SNEAK PEEK #2: A picture-perfect view deserves a picture perfect palette. One of these will be yours!

Eyeshadow palettes!!!

The round one on top is from Be A Bombshell Cosmetics
and the one on the left is from NYX.

Personally I would rather have the palette from Be A Bombshell since I am not a big NYX eyeshadow fan. *Crossing fingers for B.A.B.*

Which palette are you hoping to get?

Hello Lovelies!

It is the first Monday of the month, so you know what that means... IPSY SNEAK PEAK!!!

Today's sneak peak is.....

MARCH GLAM BAG SNEAK PEEK #1: Travel tips and travel lips! Now is the time to start planning a trip to your dream destination with one of these amazing products.

As you can see from the picture, there is a lipgloss and a lipstick in a vibrant dark pink/red color. 

Here is what I think the items are:

Bare Minerals, Double Trouble lip set! Retail $14

Even though it is a set, it is possible that Ipsy will be breaking them up and it will be an either or item. So I'm assuming that you will either get the lipstick or the lipgloss. *I could be wrong and this might not be what is in the sneak peak*

Are you excited for this sneak peak? Let me know!
