The Makeup Show Chicago 2014 Haul Videos and Swatch Photos Part 1

Earlier this month I attended The Makeup Show here in Chicago. It took place at the Bridgeport Art Center on June 7th and 8th. I also went to the the blogger preview which was on June 6th. And I finally got around to filming and uploading haul videos. I filmed two videos just like last year. In the first video I show what I got in the blogger preview swag bag. And the second video is everything I bought.
Also, I took photos of the products and swatches. I decided to photo the swatches because sometimes the lighting in the video is a bit off. So I figured the pictures might help you all get a better idea of the true colors.
Lastly, was going to make this one huge post but I'm going to make this two parts too. So click HERE for the second half of my haul from The Makeup Show 2014.

Check out the videos and please rate, comment, and subscribe. Also let  me know if you see any favorites, wishlist items, or if you have any questions.

May 2014 Treatsie Box Unboxing (First Box Free)

Another subscription box. Somebody help me. This time it's the Treatsie box which offers high-quality, artisan sweets from independent confectioners/vendors across the US. I got my first box for free.  I just had to pay the shipping cost which is $4.95. And you can do the same - Just go to to sign up.  Otherwise the box (shipping included) costs $19.95
Also, I have to mention Treatsie's awesome customer service. My first box never quite made it to my house so I contacted Treatsie and they sent me another box right away. Also, there was one item missing from my box. I never contacted them about the item and had no plans to do so.  A day or two later, I received an email from Treatsie apologizing for the missing item and they sent a couple replacements days later. So Kudo's to the Treasie Customer Service team.

Check out the video to see what I go in my very first Treatsie box and let me know what you think.
