Where is Pore? | A Clothes Look

You may recognize this mask from my Glossybox earlier this month well I decided to try out this mask duo by the brand Caolion.


The first mask you use is the Blackhead 02 Bubble Pore Pack. The mask was activated by oxygen.


This mask was very refreshing and felt so cool on my skin! I felt the bubbles growing and also dissipating it almost felt like it was sliding off my face but it didn’t.

The second mask Pore Original was like any other mud mask so no fun photos with that one but it was a mixture of a cold/hot mask. It felt like I had rubbed menthol over my face.  It was an interesting sensation.

The end result was wonderful.  I felt like all my pores were clean and my face looked tight and plump. I would definitely purchase this mask duo on my own.  I loved it!

c Booth Charcoal Foaming Dry Body Polish & Cleanser | A Clothes Look

I was in Ulta the other day looking for a portable body scrub to take it with me on vacation.  I decided to pick this up because I was intrigued since it was a dry scrub and also because it has charcoal in it.  This retails for $8.99 at Ulta and there was a $2.00 off coupon on the container so I bought it for $6.99.


This scrub has a sweet scent to it, if you’re sensitive to scents I wouldn’t suggest this polish.


Massage a bit of this on wet skin, it does foam up a little bit but it’s not an over sudsy body polish/cleanser.

It does have charcoal in it which can be drying to the skin. This is not a scrub where you cannot moisturize after, you have to take the extra step when you’re out of the shower.

Total review 3 out of 5 stars



Benefit Ka Brow | A Clothes Look

I was lucky enough to get a sample of the Benefit Ka Brow from Ulta.   The Benefit Ka Brow is similar to the Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow pomade.


I have to say I did like this product.



It came with a slanted brush on the top of the container which is nice because that means it is easy to travel with.

My brows before:


My brows after:


They looked good, and it lasted all day through work.  The product was a bit hard to use, but I feel like it was hard to use because it is a sample size the cavity wasn’t that large to put the brush in.

I feel like you could really build up this up for some dramatic brows.  I would love to try the full size to see if it is easier to use.  This product is in shade 3 and they offer 6 shades.

This product costs $24 and is sold at Sephora, Ulta and anywhere Benefit is sold.

Alice Through The Looking Glass | A Clothes Look

I know I may be a bit late on this, but I ended up caving and getting the Alice Through The Looking Glass palette. At first I was like “oh yes”, then “nah, I don’t need it”, then “I must have it”, then “nope”, then I just bought it.


This palette is sold anywhere Urban Decay is sold and costs $60.
If you order online don’t forget to use EBates to get some cash back!

DSC_9128Packaging is personally a 0 out of 10 for it. It is the old packaging Urban Decay used to do. The big, bulky, box packaging with a fun house mirror attached. However, look at these colors….


It is really pretty.

The first row of swatches:


Looking Glass, Hatter, Lily, Heads Will Roll, Time

Hatter was watched twice here to build up pigment on this color.

Second Row:


Reflection, Gone Mad, Duchess, Bandersnatch, Dream On

Gone Mad was swatched twice to build up pigmentation, this color is a bit dry.
Duchess was only swatched once but could be layered for more glitter and color.
Dream On reminds me of the chunky glitters Urban Decay used to do.

Third Row (my favorite):


Dormouse, Paradox, Kingdom, Salazen Grum, Chronosphere

This whole row is soft and buttery and all colors were only swatched once.

Last Row:


Metamorphosis, Cake, Chessboard, Royal Flush, Mirror

All colors were only swatched once however you can layer Metamorphosis and Cake to get a more rich color.

This palette is beautiful and you can come up with a lot of creative looks and also a good bit of neutral looks.

Did you get this palette?


June Glossybox Extra Box | A Clothes Look

When I mentioned my June Glossybox I had said I used a coupon code and received a free box. This is what was in it!


It is nice that they packaged it just as nicely as they packaged my not free box.




BioRepublic Skincare Sheet Mask


I really enjoy sheet masks, so I am excited to try this fiber mask out. This is a full size items and retails for $5

Golden Skin Roll-On Caviar Eye Gel


This eye gel by the brand Etre Belle Cosmetics has a nice cooling effect when used because of the roller ball.  The deluxe sample in this box is .34 ounces.

The full size retails for $45.00 for .5 ounces.

The POREfessional Face Primer by Benefit


This is a cult favorite by many, this is a very tiny sample (0.1 ounce) but it is enough to try out the product if you’ve never used it before.

The full size retails for $31.00 for 0.75 ounce of product.

Teeez Cosmetics
Oasis Gem Lipstick in Heat Wave Ruby


This is a very pretty shade of lipstick and I feel like would look wonderful in fall and winter but can also be pulled off in the summer time.

This is a full size item and retails for $22

ThirstyCleanse Daily Hydrating Cleanser


Glamglow anything has been a cult favorite since the original mask hit Sephora.  I am super excited to try this product. In this box I received a 1 ounce sample. The full size is 5 ounces.

This product retails for $39.00


Honestly, I think the ‘extra’ box was worth it more than the original box I received  I cannot wait to try some of these products. I am most excited about the face mask and the Thirsty Cleanse.

ABH Modern Renaissance | A Clothes Look

So by the title you know what this post is about, the beautiful, permanent Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette: Modern Renaissance.


The packaging reminds of the IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette. It’s a mauve-pink felt like feeling. It’s not my favorite but the outside isn’t what counts it is the inside….

Que angels singing….


Okay, I am going to be honest I wasn’t interested in this palette at all. I wasn’t even planning on getting it, then I was browsing in Sephora and came across it and then I swatched a few colors and grabbed the last palette as fast as possible.

A few colors in this palette have been on my “want” list and I figured by the time I bought those individually I would basically be paying for this palette which is gorgeous.  This palette does cost $42 and is sold anywhere ABH is.


The top row: DSC_9150-2

Tempera, Golden Ochre, Vermeer, Buon Fresco, Antique Bronze, Love Letter, Cyprus Umber

I swatched Golden Ochre twice in this photo, not because it is poorly pigmented just so it would show up a little better on my skin tone.

Love Letter is extremely dry to the touch but does have a nice pigment payoff.



Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange, Primavera, Red Ochre, Venetian Red, Warm Taupe, Realgar

This row was honestly perfect, I had no problem with any of the colors swatching and all were smooth.

Overall, I would recommend this palette if you’re looking for a warm summer palette or the perfect fall palette, because honestly I think of fall when I look at these colors.

Are you planning on getting this palette or have you already picked it up?


The Packing List | A Clothes Look


Summer is here, and vacations are in full swing now. So I thought I would put together a packing list and a few tips to help you pack easier.

Packing Tips:
  • Check the weather before you pack
  • Know your packing restrictions if you’re traveling on a plane
  • Pack a color story with your clothes (mix & match)
  • Double check your packing list
  • Pack items inside items (socks inside shoes)
  • Roll your clothes instead of folding
  • If you forget to pack it, you can buy it
  • Don’t stress, have fun

My Favorites | A Clothes Look

I have been loving a few, new things lately and I would love to share them with you.

Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 2.17.00 PM

L’oreal True Match
I know this has been a fan favorite forever but I was too scared to move away from my tried and true Nars Sheer Glow. Well I finally took a plunge with some drug store make up and I do love this foundation.

Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 2.19.11 PM

NYX Micro Brow Pencil
I have went through several of these but I’m not sure if I ever mentioned them, I find this to be a perfect dupe to the more expensive Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 2.25.16 PM

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream
I have never used a face cream that hydrated my skin so well.  I apply this every night and every morning I wake up with smooth, soft and hydrated skin.  I’m in love.


Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 2.29.20 PM

I have been addicted to this game lately, all my free time has been building my city.

Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 2.30.50 PM

This ice cream has been a midnight snack lately, I picked it up at Kroger because it was on sale and this is delicious.


So there are a few things I have been loving, what have you been loving?

June Glossybox | A Clothes Look

I was on Facebook and saw an advertisement for Glossybox, use promo code “extra” and get an extra box for free when you sign up with Glossybox. So I thought, why not I only have one subscription box coming in right now.

Glossy box is $21 a month.


This Glossybox box in packaged in another larger box when it ships to you, which is nice because you can reuse the actual box the products come in.  It is made with really sturdy cardboard.


It is nicely packaged with an information card.


This box mostly comes with deluxe size samples, it is NOT all full sized products like I thought it would be for the price tag.


Sebastian Professional Whipped Creme

“A light, conditioning styling product designed to nourish locals and give your waves a little pep in their step. ”


A sample of their Dark Oil was also included in the box…


The “tip” with this was to mix the Dark Oil with a moisturizing conditioner and let it sit in your hair 5-10 minutes for a hair mask.

A full size of the Whipped Creme is $20.00 for 5.3 ounces.  The one received in the box is 0.9 ounces.

LA Splash Lip Lacquer


This product looks identical to the color of the tube on your lips.  However this item is a bit sketchy to me. On the card it says full size is $18 when I looked on the website to see if this is a full size item or not, I find that this item is only $8.98 on their website, is no longer in stock and before it went out of stock it was on sale for $4.49.

Finally the only review I am finding online about this product is from 2012… a little weird maybe this is a product they’re bringing back.  On the bottom it does say P. May 13, 2016 and Exp. May 13, 2018.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish


This is part of the Kylie Jenner collaborations with Sinful Colors. This color is in Denim & Bling it is a just glitter topcoat.

This is a full size item and it retails for $3.00

Icona Milano: Emotion Allowed Mascara


This is a black mascara, I haven’t tried this yet since I have a few mascaras to get through before trying another. It is a full size mascara.

This retails for $19.00

Tan Towels


In the box, I received two tan towels, a full size is 10 towelettes. One nice thing with this is they over you a $20 off discount code if you go to their website and use the code “glossybox”.

Full size retails for $27

Caolion Premium O2 Bubble & Cool Pore Pack Duo


I’m really excited to use this, I saw this brand in Sephora the other day so I know where to buy this later on if I love it.  This is one sample of each mask.

The full size is $31.00 for 1.8 ounces.


So for my first box it was okay, I don’t think it was worth $21 but I will see what I think of the items in this box and then I can make my final decision. I will let you know with my July box whether I plan to keep it or not.
