It’s been awhile since I’ve received a VoxBox from Influenster. Normally I’ll receive 2 or 3 a year but I’m hoping 2015 brings me many, many, many more! Anyway, I wanted to go through its contents and let you see what came inside the December Frosty VoxBox. If you aren’t familiar with Influenster it is a website you can join for free (Here’s the link) and you can receive different products from all sorts of brands. These boxes are free for testing and review purposes. (Plus it’s a cool way to introduce a new brand or product into your life. Just be patient though, at first it will seem like you never qualify but you will, I promise.
The first product I pulled out of the box is the EcoTools Sleek & Shine Finisher Brush. This is a brush I’ll have to do some googling on this brush and find out how I am supposed to use it. The bristles are different than I’m used to but I do love a good brush once I can figure out what it can do for me. See the bristles? I’m used to the ones that are stronger and have a little waxy ball at the end of it. I’ll try and see what I can do with this one.
The next product I grabbed from the box is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Black Eyeliner. SCORE!!!! This is one of the best waterproof eyeliners. I’ve received this eyeliner in a previous Ipsy bag and TOTALLY love it so this product made me so excited! Check out the swatch on my hand. It’s a deep smooth black…
There was also Rimmel’s Gentle Eye-Makeup Remover inside. Someone answered my makeup vibes I was putting out into the universe because I just ran out of my usual remover. I’ll definitely be ripping this package open tonight. There have been good reviews about this one. I hear its great for waterproof mascara & eyeliner. I hope so!!!
NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum. I’ve watched a few unboxings on YouTube and heart such mixed reviews on this lipstick. Most said “it didn’t last long”, “it’s pigment isn’t the best” but I have to disagree. I found that the color did last longer than other lipsticks in this price range. I’m a coffee drinker and normally re-apply lipstick like crazy but I didn’t have to with this one. The tone is gorgeous. It’s an earthy brown, pink, plum color (mix them all together) and that’s the color you get on your lips. It is beautiful to me and we even ran to Target to grab a few more for my mom and sister. ($1.98)
Ohhh! This next product took me by surprise. McCormick Thyme. Now, I’ll never be disappointed in receiving a seasoning for free and I actually used this on my steaks for dinner and dannnnnng, it was so good! This item alone made me excited! (g33k, I know).
Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Tea. Hmm, I’m not a tea drinker….and it’s decaffeinated…. ehhhh, I’ll give it a whirl. People seem to love it. Maybe on a rainy day? We’ll see. I’m definitely not disappointed because it was free, and I’m down to try anything once. It can’t be that bad. They also through in a .55 cent coupon for more so I’ll save it just in case they make a lover out of me.
Fruit Vine Bites (Cherry). Again, mixed reviews on these. Most of the reviews I saw said they were disappointed because they weren’t the ‘gummies’. For one, I have no idea what would make anyone think they were gummy when they say “Vine”. Doesn’t that make you think of a licorice? It did to me. They are a licorice, like a twizzler but in little bite sized pieces. They smell like the Lucerne cough drops and taste like them too, but chewy. I liked them. Although, I don’t buy gummies or licorice, I still ate them. So, thank you for those! I was hungry.
What else, what else…. Oh yes. No7 Protected & Perfect Advanced Serum by Bootz. I believe you can buy this line at Target. It came in a little paper packet and I haven’t tried it yet but I’m happy to try ANY age defying product. Once I run out of my current serum, i’ll definitely give this a whirl. Funny note to add: they packed it inside of a ziplock back. This struck me funny but now that I think about it, I appreciate that they protected my other products in the box in case it split open.
That’s it, ladies. I had fun playing with all of my goodies and look forward to my next Influenster VoxBox. If you want to join me on influenster, its free, girlfriend!!! Just click this link: https://www.influenster.com/r/196015
