Studio Gear Cosmetics! Mascara, primer, eyeshadow

Hey all you Beauty and makeup junkies!!! Rubyblood here to share another product review with you.
I got the chance to work with Studio Gear recently and they sent me some amazing things!

My memories software review and giveaway.

I recently got a chance to try out the My memories scrapbook software. I don't scrapbook but I do a lot of design work for the blog and buttons and things like that. I take pride in being able to do these things for myself and I love to learn new techniques. That being said it usually takes me forever to make anything because I have to come up with a idea and then find each individual item I need like back ground ect. That's where this software comes in! It has tons of pre-loaded options to customize what you are working on.

Merlot Skin Care: Moonlight Radiance Night Cream & Grape Seed Moisturizer

Merlot Skin Care: Moonlight Radiance Night Cream & Grape Seed Moisturizer

As I get closer to 25 I have started to worry about my skin. I have caught myself looking at older people in public and thinking "what can I do to prevent that." So I have finally taken to heart what my friend Connie says "Better to start before the problem (prevention) then to try to undo the problem (repair)." As prevention is easier and more effective then trying to repair after the damage has occurred. I went into using these afraid that they may cause me to break out more then I already do (like the Burt's bee's night cream I tried a few months ago.) but I didn't have any issues with a major break out. There was also no burning or heavy feeling when I used this product. I really like that its made from Grapes (I adore them I really do.)

Butter London Knees Up Review

Butter London Knees Up Review

I recently got the chance to work with the highly loved brand Butter London. While looking at the colors Knees Up caught my eye, such a lovely red with a metallic sheen.

I have been looking for a red to be a staple in my collection and I believe that this is it! My coworkers even joined in on the fun! Out came the remover, cotton balls, clear coat and we had a blast!

Bulu BOX march review.

I received the Bulu BOX this month to try and I shared it with my coworkers since each of us have a different activity level.

What came in the box!

Dream Water
Prolab Quick Fire
Aero Shot energy
At Ease PM

Aero Shot
I tried the Aero Shot while at work one night when I was super tired and having trouble staying awake.
Let me tell you! When I tried this is just read the back which says:
I didn't read anything other then that so I opened the pack and this is whats inside.
I received it in Raspberry (not a flavor I'm fond of) which I am not sure if that is the reason for the reaction I had. I inhaled the AeroShot Expecting something like an inhaler, like a mist but instead I was attacked by powder in the back of my throat. It left me coughing and sputtering for about 5 minuets, and I downed half of the drink I had with me (can't remember if it was Mt. Dew or water). I can tell you I was awake and alert after that but I don't know if it was the Shot itself or the Shock of it. Maybe they should call it Aero Shock! It was very sour tasting like I just inhaled a pixie stick but raspberry (like I said not a flavor I like.)
I saw these in the store and wanted to try them so I am glad it was included in the box and even after my experience I am still considering picking up the green apple and giving it a SHOT since I know what to expect now.

Dream water
Worked just as it said and helped me to sleep a full nights rest and didn't taste as bad as I thought it would.

Prolab Quick Fire
This was in fruit punch flavor and my coworker said it tasted great and wasn't gritty.

I tried this one and ended up throwing it away. I tossed one in my mouth since it said it would dissolve I sat and waited. After a couple of mins I got a horrible taste in my mouth that made me feel like I was going to be sick so I threw away the remaining unused pill and spit out the rest of the other (no one else wanted to try it after seeing the look of horror on my face.) 

At Ease PM
I sent this home with a coworker that has trouble sleeping and he said it put him out very quickly and he slept all night! He liked it so much he's looking at buying it!

All in All

If you're into weight loss supplements and looking for new ones to use this BOX is for you. I on the other hand am going to stick with what the doctor tells me to use and beauty boxes.

Corset Chick review

I, like many other goth girls have dreamed of owning a corset. I recently found this company called Corset Chick. What do they have you ask? Well they have a lot! They have Corset Tops, Corsets, Plus size corsets, and Corset Dresses.

They sale a majority of their corsets (including the Plus size corsets) for under $30. They have a vast collection that it will leave you searching for hours trying to make a choice. On the other side you may find yourself ordering a closet full of corsets and corset dresses.

The picture to the left is the corset I received  It is currently unavailable for sale outside of the set you see pictured. The set is

Gothic Corset + Matching G-string + Gothic skirt. The set is $41.99 Available in sizes Small, Medium, Large, XL, 2XL, 3/4XL, 5/6XL

Ciate Sequined Manicure Kit in harlequin

Ciate Sequined Manicure Kit in Harlequin

This is the 2nd product I received to review from Ciate. I love the idea of this manicure and unlike most of my co workers I adore glitter. They have 2 color variation available for sale at Sephora currently
  • Harlequin
  • Tutu
These retail for $19 but sometimes go on sale for $13. Inside you will find:
  • Pot of glitter
  • Glitter grip
  • brush

More information about the product:

What it is:

A two-step innovative nail art kit that delivers a raw sequin-like texture.

What it does:

The Sequined Manicure™ was created by Ciaté’s Creative Director Charlotte Knight while styling an extravagant nail look to give an embellished dazzling finish, unachievable by regular nail polish. 

Suggested Usage:

-The kit includes a Glitter Grip polish, the perfect base to create a sequin coat onto the nail. 

-Tidy the nail, sweeping away any excess sequins with your Little Black Brush and finish with a slick coat of Glitter Grip over your sequined nails.

-The finished look is a wonderfully heavy sequin coat, creating an exquisite finish.

Rebellious Addiction Two Rhinestone Heart Wrap Cuff Review

Rhinestone Heart Wrap Cuff

So if you haven't been able to tell from my blue hair or lip piercing, I'm into the alternative life style. I love clothes with studs, spikes, and chains. I was searching online one day for new alternative accessories and I found this amazing company called Rebellious Addiction Two. When it comes to accessories to me its like a kid in a candy store, I just want to look at everything. I got the lucky chance to do a review and a Giveaway with this amazing alternative company.

received the Rhinestone Heart Wrap Cuff to review. I have bought many cuffs and collars and things made from leather and I notice they usually don't hold up well. They are usually not made very well which is always my disappointment. I brought a necklace once when I was younger before I had a car from Hot Topic. I excitedly put it on and got on the bus. Not even 5 mins after the bus left the necklace broke, that was just one of many times. When I received this Cuff I was afraid the metal balls around the edges would come off but after wearing it and looking at it I see how well its made. The gems are well attached and I don't have any fear that they will come loose and fall off like spikes on spiked bracelets tend to do that are attached by rivets . Generally I thought about super gluing them shut but I know the leather wont stay together long so I prefer to be able to remove the spikes once the leather has gotten old and broken. The leather on this bracelet is very well made its thicker then any other cuff I have ever owned and I love the texture that has been worked into it.. 

Here is some more info about the bracelet:

This stunning heart cuff will have all eyes on you. Black leather and plenty of rhinestones make this cuff a must have!
Rhinestone heart wrap cuff
1.75″ width
Length approx 9.5″
Snap button closure

 As you can see the gems are actually riveted on which with this type of product is really a smart move but a lot of companies don't do that and to me that's what sets Rebellious Addiction Two apart in my eyes. The heart does have screws on the back but they used 2 not just one and I can't make them budge by hand which I take as a good sign that it won't be falling apart anytime soon.

Bart's Cookies Review.

Bart's Cookies Review.

Who doesn't like cookies? Well one day I was online and discovered this company who makes amazing cookies. I got the chance to review 2 kinds of these cookies and it was hard to choose! In the end I picked the milk chocolate chip and the white chocolate chip cookies. I almost didn't get to take pictures before the Old Man gobbled them up. I have never seen a cookie that looked like this. its like a lump of cookie gold, filled with chocolate chips and yummyness. I got 3 out of 12 cookies and enjoyed every bite. If you want to surprise someone with something good then you should check out Bart's cookies its better then chocolate. I mean he's been making cookies since I was born! He must know what he's doing.
