          Fresh Sugar Kisses Balm Duo Review

          I have been itching to get my hands on these balms for soo long! I missed picking them up around my birthday but luckily I was still able to snatch them up. I love lipsticks and glosses but balms will always hold a special place in my heart! Whenever a lippie is too drying or just isn’t moisturizing enough a nice balm will always save the day. I’ve seen a lot of ladies complaining about this balm duo but I like it! Check it out!

          My Viggle Rewards Sephora Haul!

          Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

          Back in July, I found out about a pretty cool app for Android and iOS devices called Viggle. I must say it’s easy to use and pretty darn cool! You just check into what you’re watching on tv using the app for points. You get one point for every minute you’re checked in and up to 200 bonus points for checking into certain prime time shows. You even get points for watching short videos and participating in quizzes. In return for those points, you can redeem gift cards! And boy does Viggle has some nice options! The most popular include:

          • $25 for Amazon and Best Buy
          • $15 for Chili’s
          • $10 for Footlocker and Sephora
          • $5 for CVS, Starbucks and Barnes & Noble

          But the only thing I was interested in was the Sephora gift cards of course! At first, I kept forgetting to check in whenever I watched tv but after I started remembering to use the app I started racking up points immediately! For 20,000 you can score $10 at Sephora. Since I’ve been using Viggle, I’ve racked up enough points for $40 to go wild at my favorite makeup retailer. I noticed when I’m consistent with the app I’m able to score these much quicker. I earned two of them in less than a month in October! And I’m well on my way to grabbing another very soon!

          Those gift cards totally came in handy too! I did a pretty great haul with them! I finally ordered that Tarte 5 piece Lip Surgence set I’ve been eyeing. I’ve never tried any of Tarte’s products but I really wanted to give them a try and thought this would be a great way to do so. For just $34 this set was definitely a steal! I believe these chubby beauties are all full sized too! I also picked up the Too Faced Beauty Editor Darlings set. It’s quite the sampler and only costs $19! It comes with a deluxe sample of their Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer, Lashgasm mascara, Glamour Gloss in Sexpot, Lip Insurance lip primer and a Primed & Poreless face primer. I’ve been itching to try their mascara, lip primer and eyeshadow primer. I can’t wait to give them a go!

          Along with my Viggle rewards, I scored a code for a deluxe mini of Michael Kors perfume from the spin to win game. Which was perfect because my mom loves this fragrance and she’s been dying to get her hands on some more! I also scored a Gucci Premiere perfume sample and a Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb cologne perfume for my sweetheart. And I FINALLY was able to score my free Fresh balm duo for this year’s birthday gift.

          If you haven’t checked out Viggle yet I totally don’t know what you’re waiting for! It’s so easy to earn rewards and you rack up tons of points in NO time! Just remember to check in!
