Custom Dress from eShakti Review

    That time of year has rolled around again where you scramble to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. If you happen to have a fashion lover to buy for this may be your lucky day!
    Some women will admit, buying any dress off the rack can be disappointing at best. Just because it looks good on the hanger, doesn't always mean it will look good on your body. This leaves us with that uncomfortable feeling we get when we wear ill fitting, unflattering clothes. The designers had good intentions, but somethings never work out how you want.
   This is my life on a daily basis; especially when I am looking for dresses or tops. I have to go for larger sizes to accommodate my chest and this leaves me looking as if I am wearing a tent. Being plus sized has major disadvantages like that.
    That is when I found eShakti (pronounced e-SHACK-tee). Shakti means power in Sanskrit. eShakti therefore means the power of the net. I scrolled through their website and was completely floored by how beautiful the dresses were!
     Not only does eShakti have an amazing selection of beautiful tops, 50's inspired dresses, skirts, jackets and bridesmaid options; but they also carry sizes from 0-36! It gets better though! No more off the rack feeling when you shop for dresses at eShakti, not only do they allow you to custom fit the dress to your measurements, but they also allow you to customize the dress how you want! Don't like the hemline? Prefer a different sleeve? Maybe the neckline isn't flattering for you and you would like something a little different? eShakti allows you to make all these changes and they make sure it fits to your height and measurements.
     I have never had a tailored piece in my wardrobe before in my life. I perused the site and ended up choosing a charcoal dress with red contrast trim on the collar. The dress is a polyester/rayon woven suiting, with no stretch, and a mid-weight. I loved the deep V-neck and wide band under the bust as well as the box pleats. It has the right amount of structure but still a lot of sass from the flowy skirt. I loved everything about the dress but I opted to switch the sleeves from a cap sleeve to a puffy sleeve.
     I was constantly questioning whether it would fit, or look good the entire time I was waiting for it to show up. I pulled it out of the packaging when I received it and thought there was no way it would fit me because of how small it looked around the midsection. I undid the side zip and pulled it on over my head and literally squealed at how perfect it was! I twirled until I was so dizzy I fell over and I didn't want to take it off. It wasn't until the second time that I put the dress on that I even remembered that it had pockets!
     I can see myself getting a lot of usage out of this dress because it is easily something I would be okay with wearing on a daily basis, or dressing up for a fancier setting. They have an amazing section on their website where you can view photos of their dresses worn by their customers. They promote real fashion for real people and this gives you the opportunity to see what they look like on people who are not professional models. With a delivery schedule of 14 days (18 calendar days) from the time you order, and no hassle returns, this literally is a dream come true. If there is more that you want to learn please check out their about section!
        If you think this all sounds magical, as it should, please check out eShakti for you or someone special this holiday season! They offer gift cards as well as discounts and free custom styling for first time buyers! They will officially be my go-to site when I need a dress for the rest of my life if I can help it.
    Be sure to check out their website to see their massive selection of amazing items! Also follow them on Facebook, or Pinterest to stay up to date!

Starlooks October Starbox Review

     There is no such thing as having too much makeup. I Would get all the beauty boxes if I could. Starlooks is another one of those top favorite boxes that I absolutely LOVE! For just $15 they send you 3-4 full sized products from their line. They also have all the items listed on their website for purchase in every shade you could need.
    The October box came with 3 amazing products. First of which being a beautiful light pink sheer gloss lip colour. The shade, Puzzy, goes on sheer and glossy with a lot of shimmer. It is a very pale pink shade and looks nice by itself or over a lip liner.
      The second item I pulled out of the box was a liner, but it's not just any liner. If you read my previous review you would remember how much I raved about the green liner in Fancy. Though it is now called a Gem Eye pencil it is still just as amazing as the one I had previously. The new liner, in Mirage, is a gorgeous metallic silver and glides on the skin so smoothly. With a micro-glitter finish it catches the light in the most amazing way! I hope to own all 8 shades! And with a list price of $14 each this one pencil almost makes up the entire price of the box itself!
       Last but most certainly not least was the most amazing blush palette! I was not expecting something this amazing to be in this box but I was very excited to see it! The packaging on this palette is absolutely perfect. There is a full, nice sized mirror that is actually useful in the top and three of the most beautiful shades you could ask for in a palette. Retailing on their website for $46, you can clearly see that this blush is worth it. The pigmentation is perfect, it comes in a multitude of shade combinations and they look great together or used separately for a day to night transition. The palette I received is the perfect one for my skintone. The darkest rosy shade still isn't too dark but would be fantastic to use when I want to warm up my skin. The lightest blush is great for when I want something more natural, and the mid-range shade is perfect for that flushed glow. If there is one thing I love more than liners, it has to be blushes, and this one looks like it will be my new favorite for a while!
     Also included in this box was a coupon for Rivet and Sway, where you can pick up some great frames, which is right up my alley! And included in this box as in all boxes is the crystal for your brush jar!
      If this looks like something you would be interested in getting in on subscribe to Starbox before November 10th to receive the amazing November Starbox, and before December 10th to receive the incredible December Starbox, containing the Starlooks' $99 VALUE, 15 Shade Eye Shadow Palette. Subscriptions are only $15/mo + shipping! 
      What part of that doesn't sound awesome? That $99 eye shadow palette would be the perfect gift for any makeup lover in your life, and at only $15 for the Starbox it truly is a steal! If there is something you happen to like out of the box they have everything available for purchase on their website
You can also check them out on their Facebook and their Youtube channel!

Wantable Beauty Box Review

     If you have been around a while you may remember a while ago I reviewed a Wantable box before and absolutely loved it! This one is right up there with how amazing everything is inside of it!
    If you are new to Wantable, they are a monthly subscription service that allows you to customize what you will receive every month according to your style quiz. You always get things picked out that are according to what you like and no two boxes may ever be the same.
          The last time I reviewed a Wantable box they only had a makeup and a jewelry box to choose from and now they have expanded to accessories, intimates and holiday/special edition boxes!
       I instantly fell in love all over again when I opened my box, The first thing my eyes latched on to was the travel sized Japonesque Angled Foundation brush. I literally made an inhuman squeal that scared Dexter. This brush alone is worth $25 and is the first Japonesque brush I have had the pleasure of owning. I am a sucker for makeup brushes and I know I will love to use this one!
       The next item I pulled out was the blush by Brazen. It is an Organic Mineral Blush in the shade Amorous. I love the rosy, slightly shimmery shade of this blue and the packaging is just absolutely adorable. I love that the top of the container is stamped with a "B" as if it was done with wax. It's very rare you see anything like that done to packaging and I appreciated the detail.
      The nail polish from Rainbow Honey Cosmetics is absolutely striking. I LOVE the look of a chunky glitter polish when it's done just right. No photo could ever be taken of this polish to really accentuate all the glitter in the right way though. It's gorgeous in person! It is sure to be my new favorite!
      When I pulled out the Cailyn mascara I thought it was just another boring black. Sometimes it's hard to tell a difference between mascaras nowadays because they are all getting to be really good. I opened the box and fell in love with the tube though! I like the way it has black on black, matte on shiny and the silver printed label. What I wasn't expecting when I pulled out the wand was to see it was BLUE! I am beyond thrilled! I haven't had a good blue mascara in years and it has been increasingly harder to find. I love that it is more of a subtle navy blue but when the light hits it you can definitely tell it's blue. I'm all about the blue mascara and is easily my favorite item in the entire box.
      The last full sized item in the box was a gorgeous lipstick from MANNA Kadar. It is a beautiful Fuchsia blue-pink with tons of gloss and shine. It goes on with a lot of pigment but can still be sheered out for the ones who are afraid of colour. I like the way it looks and I can't quite pin it, but I like the way it smells too.
        The last item was a sample size of Lise Watier. A lot of this was in french but it is a long lasting anti-aging eyeshadow. It appears to have a mousse like texture and comes in a little glass jar similar to MAC paint pots or the Maybelline colour tattoos. It had two samples of Sunrise Peach and Vert Enchant√©. Sunrise Peach is a gorgeous red coral and Vert Enchant√© is a beautiful shimmery gray-brown. I definitely would love to own a full size of any one of the shades listed on the sample card though, they all look pretty!
         This box is full of fun things anyone would love to have. This is definitely still in my top favorites. If you have someone in your life that you think would love this as a gift, don't forget that the holidays are right around the corner! And if makeup isn't her thing don't forget there is also the Accessories and the Intimates boxes as well!
        Don't forget to check out Wantable on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest to learn more and keep up to date on all things Wantable!
