Influenster’s Vow VoxBox.

influenster1vow voxbox

When I was accepted to receive Influenster’s Vow VoxBox I was BEYOND excited. Obviously, I couldn’t wait to see what was included in the box because I’m getting married next year. I impatiently waited for the box to arrive, and when it got here I ripped into it, and it contained some pretty great products!


Very similar to the beauty boxes I review, this box included a content card:20140701_143220


Item Breakdown:

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Barracuda. A light blue color. I absolutely love the Complete Salon Manicure line from Sally Hanson. It has a really unique brush that evenly applies the polish. It has great coverage and long wear-ability.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream. I was pretty surprised to see this in the box since it retails for over $30. I actually saw the commercial for this product a few days before receiving the box and thought it’d seemed neat and that I’d like to try it. Well they read my mind. It moisturizes nicely and leaves skin looking smooth and even. Good product but I don’t know if it’s a miracle product, but it’s not bad.

Riley & Grey. A wedding website company. This card included a discount. I checked out the website it has nice websites and great themes. But this just wasn’t for me, not with plenty of options for free wedding websites. This just wasn’t an expense I could afford splurging on for wedding planning.

Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream in Raspberry Mist. A brand that’s been around forever. An oldie but goodie. This cream smells good, applies nicely, and leaves legs moisturized and smooth.

EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge. I’m not going to lie, I have never seen anything like this before in my life. When dry it feels like styrofoam but when it gets wet it turn soft. It’s supposed to be really good for your skin and exfoliating. I have yet to try it.

Tide to Go Pen. Another oldie but goodie. Just rub the pen over the stain on your outfit and wah-lah it dissolves (most of the time). I always have one in the car, so I put this one in my work bag. Just product to have on-hand because you just never know.

Overall I was impressed with all the products in this box. It was a really great collection. And I hope I have the opportunity to review and try out another one of their boxes.

And finally the products!


Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer in Luna. Rich color that goes on smoothly and leaves a nice lacquer shine. This is more of a spring color though. Rimmel London US @RimmelLondonUS / #ShowOffLipLacquer

NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow in Long Beach Sands. Three very nice, neutral colors. They are pigmented and last with a silky finish. Great for a neutral smoky eye for the holidays. New York Color Cosmetics @NYCNewYorkColor / #HDColorTrio

Ducklings Mini Rolls Duck Tape (blue & white floral design). Pocket sized roll of duct tape. Perfect for crafting, projects, and decorating. Tears easily and holds strong just like the regular sized. And how cute is it that they are called ducklings!? Duck Tape @TheDuckBrand / #MiniDucklings

Puffs Plus Lotion. Winter is here and with it brings runny noses. This is perfect to throw in you purse, bag, car etc. And it has lotion to keep your nose nice and soft, no redness, dryness, or soreness!  Puffs Tissues @Puffs / #PassthePuffs

Skinny Cow Divine Chocolates in Peanut Butter Creme. OK, so I must admit I received a whole box of chocolate but we dug in before I took the picture, whoops! This are so good, Kyle even agreed! And the best part you get three normal sized pieces of chocolate for only 130 calories. Can’t beat that! The Skinny Cow US @TheSkinnyCow / #IndulgeWithSkinny

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.


Studio Gear Holiday Palette Review.

First things first, I want to apologize for being a bag blogger recently. I’ve just been busy and nothing too exciting has been going on. The plan is for blogging to get back to normal this week.

With the holidays coming up, the Studio Gear Holiday Palette is perfect. Especially if you love a smokey eye; and you all know that I love the smokey eye look.

The palette comes in a really cute sleeve.

When you take the palette out and open it up the top is directions on how to ‘get the look’. The palette includes four eye shadows and one blush. Going left to right, up to down on the palette the colors are: platinum, frost, snowy glow, coal, and glimmer. (Click to make the picture bigger.)

I took swatches of all the colors:

From top to bottom the colors are: platinum (harder to see), frost, coal, snowy glow, and glimmer. All the eye shadows are shimmery and have a nice pigment to them. The blush is a really nice rosie-pink color and stays on.

Overall I’d say the palette is a must have for the holiday and throughout the year!

You can purchase the palette right now on the Studio Gear website for $25, regularly $40.
