End of Summer Beauty Blog Sale!


Welcome to my first beauty blog sale! I’ve been inspired by some of my friends in the beauty community to declutter my makeup collection and put for sale some of my lightly used makeup. All the makeup in the blog sale are items I purchased myself, and everything will be cleaned and sanitized on my end before sending out. Please read instructions below, everything should be in those details if you have questions!

I will only be shipping to the US at this time. There will be a flat rate of $5 per order, with a minimum order of $15.

All sales are final. I will list in the description the shade, if it’s been worn or only swatched, and approximately how many uses it has gone through to help give you full details of what you are purchasing.

All sales will be through PayPal only. I will send an invoice via PayPal, and invoice must be paid within 24 hours or else I will move on to the next buyer.

Once payment and shipping information is received, the order will be shipped within 3 business days.

I will ship via USPS and email buyer with the tracking number. Everything will be packaged and wrapped securely, but I will not be responsible for lost/damaged items. If you would like to add extra insurance to your package, that will be at buyer’s cost.

Please email me at Samantha@chicklitplus.com with the items you would like to purchase, and also your shipping information and PayPal email address. Once an item has been requested and invoiced, I will mark the item as Pending on the blog, and once payment is received it will be marked as Sold and remove from the blog after it has been shipped. If an item doesn’t say pending or sold, it is still available to purchase.

I have recently done a lipstick, brush and general makeup declutter. Please be aware that items such as liquid lipsticks cannot be sanitized, as the wand is going back into the tube/product. I’ve spoken with several people on this topic and many would still like to see lipsticks included in the sale, but I want to point out that these cannot be sanitized. It is your decision if you would like to purchase those products.

Orders over $50 will ship free. Orders over $75 will include one free gift and orders over $100 will include two free gifts. Typically these gifts will be PR items that are lightly used/swatched but will not be available to purchase. Occasionally products will be brand new and that I have bought myself.

I have a new lipstick declutter and general makeup declutter coming soon, and will add to this page as those videos go live on my Youtube channel. Follow me on Snapchat (Samantha.March) or Twitter (BySamanthaMarch) for updates.

Beauty Review: #Olay28Day Challenge


For the past 28 days, I have been taking on a skincare challenge with one of my favorite – and OG!- brands, Olay. In today’s post, I’ll be reviewing each of the two products that I’ve been testing and sharing my experience with using them. Thank you to @Olay for sponsoring this blog post, and allowing me to work with them on the #Olay28Day Challenge!

20171011_111607The first product I’ve been testing is the Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF. I am big fan of moisturizer, and this is a skincare step I never skip. This is a great moisturizer to use in the morning, as it does contain sunscreen and protecting skin is definitely key. I enjoyed that while this does contain sunscreen, it doesn’t smell, feel or apply like a sunscreen. Some moisturizers I’ve tried in the past that contain SPF are hard to blend on the face, feel too thick, and also have a heavy fragrance. I liked the easy to use pump, plus the instant hydration after using without a greasy look or feeling. This anti-aging moisturizer has been a fabulous addition to my skincare routine, and I will continually use each morning and would recommend.

20171011_111645The second product I have been testing became an instant favorite of mine. Another item I don’t skip in my skincare routine is some sort of eye cream. When I was researching the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel, I was immediately drawn to the words hyaluronic acid. This is an ingredient that I’m always trying to work into my skincare, so I instantly got excited to see that. I love the cooling effect of the eye gel and it’s packed with ingredients such as peptides and cucumber extract to instantly revive the under eye area and provide hydration. I use this both morning and evening, and a little goes a long way, making this a great value. I love instant gratification, and I get that with this product, in both a lift in the under eye area and how it makes the skin feel.

Overall, I have been extremely happy with both of these products, and will continue my daily use even after my 28 Day challenge has come to an end. They are both easy to use and have a travel convenience factor, which is important to me. A good skincare routine is crucial, and I love that Olay can simplify my routine but keep is so effective.  I encourage you to take the 28 Day challenge so you can see the results for yourself! To make it easy, you can visit the Olay Skin Advisor to help find out what regimen and products are right for you. The best part is that Olay is easily accessible, can be found at local drugstores, and has an affordable price point.  You can find more information here: http://spr.ly/336429Advisor
