I was thrilled to hear I was going to receive the Beauty Blogger VoxBox. However, I had no idea of the wow factor contained within. Scope this:
Is that not a thing of Beauty, indeed?
First off, the Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin. I am not kidding...these have been on my Christmas list for a long time. I have extremely long, extremely fine hair, and two young children who are firmly convinced that its primary purpose is baby bungee cord. I like to keep it pulled back and up to prevent this. I will go into more detail in a later post.
Next to it is proof that prayers are answered. I have been addicted to Bath and Body Works since my teen years, and now they make mini candles. I got Pumpkin Cupcake scented, and let me tell you, it is heavenly. I even got a coupon to get more, so it's all over but the screams of joy. It did burn quickly, though bigger ones can be had.
Next, something I hadn't heard of: Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream. I'll tell you, anything that can take my daughter's rat nest mop that looks like this:
Might just find its way into my normal rotation. Very impressive, in my opinion. It smells nice, too.
Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit: Proof I lack a key element of femininity. I seriously could not get them onto my own eyes. However, putting them on another person's was easy as pie. They include this little applicator thingy that makes is very simple to keep them lined up. So any fault lies in my lack of skill, not the lashes.
NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact: This made me squeal like a tween. As you can see, it is a full palette, and includes a primer that really keeps the color in place. It didn't bug my skin at all, either. I felt all classy and what not, and the instructions showed me where everything goes. This is very good, for as I said before, I lack certain feminine genes. And before you fuss: It costs 4.99. Damned good, I think.
Finally, something I've mentioned before: EBOOST energy powder. The orange is pretty tasty, and it does give you a short term feel-good boost. I do admit to curiosity about the other flavors they have, especially Acai Pomegranate.
I was not cool enough to rate the Vitabath Fragrance Mist or the Boots No.7 Beautiful Skin Skincare system, sniffle. But all of this fun stuff was given to me compliments of Influenster for testing purposes, just to hear what I think, so I can't exactly wail in abject despair too long.
Okay, I'm already over it. THANK YOU, INFLUENSTER!!! So many pretties.
