FABFITFUN (FFF) WINTER BOX 2014: SPOILER #2 AND A $10 OFF COUPON CODE!!!

Published November 25, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

Well, today must be THE day for spoilers, and I’m reminded how these subscription box services usually pull out all the bells and whistles for their December boxes.

Here’s your sneak peek #2 into the FabFitFun Winter box:

“We just can’t keep a secret! Here’s spoiler #2: Every FFF VIP will receive a Half United Bullet Necklace in their winter box! We’re joining the fight against hunger by including this totally chic necklace in every box this season. Created from recycled bullet casings, half of the proceeds from Half United go to feed hungry children in the US, Cambodia, Madagascar, and Fiji. So what are you waiting for? Get yours today!”

The first spoiler was this full-sized Juice Beauty product:

As always, here at The Beholding Eye we’ll try to keep you updated as soon as these various box sneak peeks are available. So far the FabFitFun Winter box is shaping up to potentially be as good as the Fall box…And all of our readers know how much we at The Beholding Eye adored that Fall box.

If you’d like to take the plunge and order your FabFitFun Winter Box now, here are a couple of links to get you started on your quest:

BIG OCTOBER BEAUTY GIVEAWAY: SNEAK PEEK #10 – GO BIG OR GO HOME!!!

Published October 25, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

Okay, we’re winding down to the last couple of days of the giveaway and, since it’s Friday and I’m still on cloud 9 over my Wantable Intimates box from this morning, let’s grab another item and toss it into the giveaway. Who ever thought giving things away could be so much fun?

And here it is, Item #10 in the Big October Beauty Giveaway:

20141006_100135

From the world-renowned Bulgari, this is an approximately 3-ounce bottle of their Bulgari Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Conditioner. It smells wonderful (as do the Bulgari fragrances I’ve sampled). Assuming its hefty price tag means it not only smells good but actually works well, this should knock your proverbial socks off.
(RETAIL VALUE: Approx $20; full-size 6.76 oz bottle retails for $45)

And tomorrow will likely bring what is likely the final item in the giveaway. Off the top of my caffeine-deprived head (I’m only halfway through cup #2 this lovely Friday morning), I believe retail value on this giveaway is now up to $350 and contains some truly UH-MAZING products. It’s going to be like the Beauty Fairy came to visit the winner…Be sure to enter now so you don’t miss out on your chance to have a big box of awesomeness show up on your doorstep!

BIG OCTOBER BEAUTY GIVEAWAY – SNEAK PEEK #8 – GO BIG OR GO HOME!!!

Published October 18, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

Away we gooooo……Here’s a sneak peek at item #8 in the Big October Beauty Giveaway.

This product was a huge hit in the FabFitFun summer box and apparently does wonders for hair of all types. I’m sure it’s a fabulous product but my old-school self doesn’t waiver from my tried-and-true hair miracle, John Frieda Frizz Ease, so time to pass this little jewel on to someone who will put it to good use.

Balance Guru Organic Sesame and Lemongrass Balancing Oil (1 ounce)

(RETAIL VALUE: $25 – GIVEAWAY PRODUCT IS FULL SIZE)

BIG OCTOBER BEAUTY GIVEAWAY – SNEAK PEEK ITEM #6 AND #7 – GO BIG OR GO HOME!

Published October 12, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead. HUGE. I even planned my dinner menu tonight around everyone’s work schedule and watching the season premiere off of the DVD. Like other TWD fans, I’ve been anticipating tonight’s premiere episode for endless months and I’m very happy The Big Day is now here.

Just as a little celebration because I’m feeling particularly festive, today I’m revealing not just one but TWO spoilers that are being included in the Big October Beauty Giveaway. I’ll also post pictures of the first 5 items below for new blog subscribers or just to refresh everyone’s memory.

So, don’t “look at the flowers” (insider TWD joke)…Look no further than below to see what else is being added to the drawing:

SNEAK PEEK #6: It seems just about everybody fell head over heels for this Harvey Prince HELLO fragrance when it started appearing in various subscription boxes over the past couple of months. Well, here’s your chance for the fragrance straight from the Boxycharm September box!

20140919_110753
(RETAIL VALUE: $29 – Product in giveaway as listed as full size on the HP website).

And, because I think hair is serious business, and because I know there are many fans of cleansing conditioners (such as the coveted but pricey Wen hair care products), I’d like to give everyone a chance to try this little gem, Macadamia Professional Flawless 6-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner. It gets fabulous reviews and was featured in Birchbox last month to great excitement.

20140919_111535
(RETAIL VALUE: Approximately $10 ($33 for full-sized 8-oz bottle at Ulta; this deluxe sample is a generous 3 ounces).

And there you have it, Sneak Peeks #6 and #7. As you can see, the retail value of this giveaway is now in the range of $270 and is chocked full of some absolutely phenomenal products.

And here’s a quick refresher of the previous 5 UH-MAZING items:

BEAUTY BOX 5 OCTOBER 2014 UNBOXING AND GIVEAWAY UPDATE!!!

Published October 11, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

So it begins, the delivery of October beauty boxes. Every reader of this blog who subscribes to any beauty boxes very well knows the excitement that goes with receiving the first box of the month and knowing the influx is starting.

First up, as usual, at Casa Beholding Eye is the October BeautyBox5. BB5 is a nice little subscription service that costs $12/month. Containing a mix of full-sized and sample-sized products, I subscribe to this one for my daughter. She loves this box and it always seems pretty well-suited to her as well. She actually received this yesterday but she was working, so I persuaded her to wait to sample anything until after I had a chance to take pictures for the blog.

So, here we go…The unboxing of the October BB5:

20141011_151234

The BB5 theme this month is Effortless Allure.

20141011_151253
And the reverse side of the card gives us a run down of this month’s products and their retail values:

20141011_151056

Looks pretty good at first glance but let’s investigate further, shall we?

20141011_151223

Oooh, now this is a handy little gadget. The SpattyDaddy is a long-handled miniature spatula that is specially designed to help the consumer get every last drop of that favorite lip gloss, serum, etc. I think we’ve all experienced the utter frustration of knowing there are still several applications’ worth of a product at the bottom of the container, even though it isn’t enough to be caught with an applicator or a pump. The SpattyDaddy has that covered, readers. Even if this hadn’t come in this BB5 box, it was definitely on the 10 Most Wanted List at Casa Beholding Eye. Awesome!!!
(RETAIL VALUE: $5.49)

20141011_151213

Lip balms of any kind are always welcome, especially with the cooler weather and chapped lips on the horizon. This is a full-sized Chapstick Hydration Lock double-ended lip balm. This will definitely be put to good use.
(RETAIL VALUE: $2.99)

20141011_151116

Next goody in the box is a sample size of Lashem Picture Perfect serum for fine lines that also works as a primer. At first I thought I could wrench this from my daughter’s perfectly manicured little fingers, but no such luck…Turns out this baby doubles as a primer for those not yet worried about wrinkles!
(RETAIL VALUE: $3.95 for full sized product)

20141011_151204

Shades of awesomeness…Here’s an absolutely GORGEOUS nail polish by Nanacoco called Surfer’s Dream. And a dream it is. Although I normally associate teal and its various incarnations as a summer color, this hue is especially deep and I actually think might work for early Fall, as well. Outstanding addition to our obscenely large polish collection.
(RETAIL VALUE: $3.95).

20141011_151133

And, oh my my, saving (in my opinion) the best for the last is this little gem from Bella Pierre. It’s their Lip and Cheek Stain in Pink. What a lovely shade, perfect for my daughter (pinks don’t normally play well with my complexion, so I can’t arm wrestle her for this one). It blends beautifully and is a lovely, just-in-from-the-snow flush. She’ll definitely put this to good use. Maybe next month she’ll get a similar product in the peach family and we can play Rock, Paper, Scissors for it.
(RETAIL VALUE: $19.99).

As I said, BB5 is $12/month. This month’s box has 4 out of 5 full-sized products, with an estimated retail value of just over $30 (which doesn’t include the estimated value of the Lashem serum sample). Now, that’s what I call a deal, particularly when every single item in this box will be used and not tossed into the Makeup Graveyard (c’mon now, we all have one, right?).
