Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox 2012

Influenster is an online community where members share reviews and opinions on products. Active members get various opportunities and rewards. I qualified for the Beauty Bloggers Voxbox. This box was sent to me for free so I could try these products and share my thoughts with you!

Inside My Box

NYC IndividualEyes Custom Compact
Union Square (938) for Brown Eyes
Price: $4.99




A compact that comes with a primer, an illuminator, an applicator, and four shadows that complement and enhance your eye color. The shadows include a highlighter, an all over lid color, and two crease colors. Available on Drugstore.com

My thoughts: I already have a few of these compacts including this one! I did a review on them, which you can find here. I love these compacts. Not only are the shadows velvety smooth, but they also create beautiful eye looks that last throughout the day. I use them often and never have a creasing issue. I like that they're small enough to fit in your bag! They're great for travel. By the way, you don't have to stick to the ones that are intended for your eye color - try them all!


Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit
Price: $5.99


This starter kit comes with 100% human hair eyelashes,  latex-free glue, and an applicator. The glue is said to have a 24-hour hold and is waterproof.

My thoughts:  I really like these kinds of kits. The glue can be used multiple times and the applicator can be used continuously. The lashes in this kit are super thick and dramatic. I don't think they'll look very natural, but they will still be fun to use. The back of the package has instructions for applying and removing the lashes for those who are unsure.


Bath & Body Works Mini Candle
Cider Lane
Price: $3.50




These mini candles come in a tiny glass jar (2" wide & 1 1/2" tall) and are 1.3 oz./36 g. Burn time is about 10-15 hours. They also gave a $10 off coupon for a 3-wick candle.

My thoughts: The mini candles are perfect if you want to try a few scents but don't want to buy the bigger sizes. The scent I received is Cider Lane - "a delicious fall blend of mulled cider, warm caramel, and sweet cinnamon". It's a great fall scent, although I could do without the caramel. I'm not a big caramel fan (taste or smell), but I like the other notes in the candle. I'll burn it down and then use the jar for bobby pins or something small.


EBOOST
$28 - 20 effervescent powders
$39  - 30 effervescent powders
$39 - 12 shots


This daily health booster comes in the form of a powder that you mix with water for a boost of energy and immunity. EBOOST also comes in the form of a shot if that's what you prefer.  There are four flavors to choose from: Orange, Pink Lemonade, Acai Pomegranate, and Super Berry.

My thoughts: I received this powder before in a Birchbox. I never tried it because it wasn't something I was interested in. I set it aside for Mark to try, but he never got around to trying it either. Maybe this time I'll get him to try it since I'm still not interested.


Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin
For dark hair
Price: $7.29



These spin pins help you create 3 simple updos: bun, side bun, or double bun. You twirl your hair up and spin the pins in to secure your style. You can also get them for light hair.

My thoughts: I like the idea of simple hair styles and buying tools to help achieve them. With that said, these are cool, but not necessary. I tried them in my hair and I wasn't blown away. They didn't keep my hair in place very well and I had to use bobby pins to secure loose ends. My hair fell out of the updo pretty quick. I'm not sure if they require practice, but that would defeat the purpose of being easy. I can't see myself using these very much.



Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream
Price: $6 (4.oz)




This cream was designed to enhance natural curl while eliminating frizz. It's infused with natural grape seed and jasmine.  Bloggers who received this Voxbox were given either this curl defining cream or a frizz control cream.

My thoughts:  I have naturally wavy hair, so hopefully this product works for me. I would've liked to try the other cream too. The trial size is pretty generous.  I'll be able to test it for awhile. I can smell the grape seed really well and it isn't too bad.


Vitabath Fragrance Mist
Spa Day - Green Tea & Sage
Price: $9.99


These new mists from Vitabath come in 16 scents! They're infused with vitamins and an antioxidant superfruit blend.

My thoughts: I love the scents that are offered. The one I was given, Green Tea & Sage , is a lightweight, refreshing scent. I would've never picked it, but I actually like it a lot. It's very different than the fragrances I normally choose.There are also a few others that I wouldn't mind trying.


I love that I got to try all of these products and it didn't cost me anything. I would recommend the Influenster community to everyone, however, you can only join by invite. You can request an invite here.
