Beautyfix Fall 2011 - First Impressions & Review

Beautyfix is a seasonal service that sends 8 deluxe or full-size samples for $49.99 per shipment. Shipments come every 3 months. The best part is that you get to choose the products you want sent to you! I never signed up for other similar services (i.e. Birchbox, Glossybox) because the products they include never appealed to me. I don't like testing hair products and I'm not too interested in perfume. Beautyfix seemed like the perfect solution for that! Watch my video for more information and links :)

Products I chose for my Fall 2011 Beautyfix package:
Beautyfix Large Cosmetics Bag
Murad Active Radiance Serum 0.5oz.
Exuviance Rejuvenating Treatment Masque 2.5oz.
Skindinavia Makeup Finishing Spray 4oz.
Cures by Avancé Age Defyer Eye 0.5oz.
Decleor Instant Radiance Moisturizer 0.5oz.
Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel - Travel Size 1.7oz.
Jane Iredale PureGloss - Soft Peach 0.17fl oz.
Pop Beauty Glitz Blitz Eye Liner - Wine Wink

I finally took it upon myself to start a Project 10 Pan. If you are unfamiliar with Project 10 Pan... it was started by the beautiful Laura (lollipop26). In this challenge you choose 10 products to finish in its entirety before you purchase any more beauty products. Many of us hoard makeup without taking the time to use up the great products in our collections. Join me! :)

My Project 10 Pan Products:
1 - Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner
2 - Prestige BrowPerfection Ideal Match Marbleized Brow Pencil
3 - Smith's Rosebud Salve
4 - Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
