* RAN Bonus Box sent to me for possible review.

Oh goodness, y'all. What a week! My phone took a swim and then frizzed out, the kids have colds AGAIN - it's just been insane here. Nothing like the holidays, huh? Thankfully, the lovely, amazing people at Rakuten Affiliates know how to cheer a chick up and sent me this insane Bloomingdale's Bonus Box which is filled with products that I have said, at one point or another, that I need to buy. I kid you not. I'm so blown away and thankful! Let's check it out and see what's inside.

  • Tory Burch Love Relentlessly Perfume ($86) - Did you know this perfume was inspired by Tory Burch's parents? Her father once wrote a note to her mother in a newspaper that read, "If I told you I love you, would you hold it against me? Love, Relentless" D'awwww, how cute is that? I can't handle it. This perfume has a slew of different notes including: Pink Pepper, Pink Grapefruit, Sicilian Lemon, Sparkling Pear, Raspberry, Lychee, Rose Essential, Orris, Jasmine Sambac, Patchouli Heart, Ambertonic, Australian Sandalwood, Vetiver,  Cedarwood Heart and Tonka Bean Absolute. I was surprised, with there being a lot of fruit notes, that this didn't have a fun, fruity scent but rather a more mature, musky scent. I would definitely put this in my "Going Out" perfume collection.
  • Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara ($32) - Swoon, swoon, swoon! My first Lancome product ever. This mascara has a slightly more wet consistency than I usually go for but the cool "swan-neck" wand compensates for it as it helps the application be a little more precise. Can we also talk about how gorgeous the packaging is? Love!
  • Clarins Supra Volume Mascara ($27) - Another mascara? Yes, please! I'd say from the two, this one is my favorite. It has a slightly drier consistency that I like working with. It's infused with cassie flower wax and panthenol to strengthen and protect your lashes.
  • MAC G66 Lashes ($17) - I searched all over for these but couldn't find them. I'm pretty sure these are actually the "7" lashes which offer a more natural look with a little something extra. I've never tried MAC lashes before and found these to be way more comfortable than I thought they'd be. I'm a new fan!
  • MAC Ruby Woo ($17) - Ask any beauty blogger what their favorite red lipstick is and this bound to be in the top three. Ruby Woo is just that classic blue-toned red that looks absolutely stunning on everyone AND makes your teeth white. It's a win/win all around.
  • Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray ($29) - I have wanted to try thickening spray for so, so long! It's basically a setting spray for your hair that also thickens which is fabulous for my super thin hair. You can use it to add volume, lift, control, finish, protect and blow-dry. It's, so far, been the only hairspray that my hair hasn't hated yet.
