Influenster Mom Vox Box 2012

Today in the mail my Mom Vox Box 2012 finally arrived! If you're interested in seeing what was in it then keep on reading ^_^

This is just the detailed card of what was in this box. 

A list of the wonderful free samples came in the Vox Box, along with pictures, a short description and their retail prices:

DenTek Comfort Clean & Fun Flossers: $1.99 to $2.99 for full packs. I absolutely love these things. You get the regular pack and a fun pack for kids. This is perfect because I am slowly starting to teach my son to floss his teeth and these look like they'll be fun for him. They help your floss easier without the hassle of dealing with regular floss. 

imPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails: $5.99 to $7.99 I had seen the ads for this on TV and really wanted to try them. I finally have the chance to try them out, and I love the color that I got. These babies really do stick on and last through things. They're great for on the go moms, because they stick on great. Like it says on the box, "fast & easy" that is no joke right there lol.

Ivory Bar Soap: $4.27 for a 10 pack bath size bars. I absolutely LOVE Ivory soap and after reading the description about them I love it even more. There are many multiple ways to use this one bar of soap, plus it is 99.44% pure! It's great for getting that clean feeling in the shower, laundry soap! (didn't know that you chip flakes off into the washer!), and great for hand washing those delicate clothes. 

Stash Tea Superfruits Tea Sampler: $3.50 Now I am usually not a big tea person unless it's black tea but with all the wonderful flavors this has I am definitely willing to try it! There's Mangosteen, Goji Berry and Pomegranate Raspberry, Acai Berry, Yumberry Blackcurrent and Bluberry! They also included Necktar Naturals Honey Crystals to use as a natural sweetner!

Last but certainly not least, Quaker Soft Baked Cookie: $2.69 for box of 6. Now I haven't tried this yet, but I am definitely looking forward to it. I absolutely love Quaker, it's been one of my favorite oatmeal brands growing up. 

Now if you're wondering what Influenster is, it's this website where you can sign up to get free vox boxes if you qualify. You earn badges on their website. This box was sent to me for free. There are tons of other different kinds of boxes they send out. You should definitely check out their website and sign up! You might get lucky like a lot of others and qualify for some free boxes! Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed.

June Glambag "Out All Night"

Ok, so I just pic stitched everything together to save time lol. 

First off the bag itself is horrible. They say you can use it as a clutch but I highly doubt any girl wants gold glitter every where that this little bag can rub up against. It's not amazingly made to last up as a clutch for most women, at least in my opinion. And yet again the bag smelled horrible, I don't know what they do but for some reason almost everyone's bags have this horrible odor to it. 

Next up we have a NYX Round Lipstick in Georgia. I don't care for this color. I feel like I look ridiculous even trying it on. Don't get me wrong it is a gorgeous color and I bet there are people out there who can pull this color off but I sure as heck can't. 

Next the Marbella PERMANENT Eyeliner. I am not one for liquid liners, let alone a "semi-permanent" eyeliner. I swatched it on my hand and let me tell you this thing doesn't want to come off. That alone scares me enough to NEVER put this on my eyes. I checked out the Marbella website and supposedly it's suppose to last like 7 days.... Uh no thank you! Now the next 2 products aren't horrible and I actually like them. 

First we have Living Proof frizz Nourishing Style Cream. This is supposed to basically give your hair a barrier against humidity and frizz. I have massively horrible hair during the summer, and humidity is not my friend so I look forward to trying this out.

Lastly we have Philosophy Take a Deep Breath oil-free energizing oxygen gel cream moisturizer. Philosophy is an amazing brand and I have tried out a good bit of their products. This is supposed to moisturize, detoxify, and protect your skin to help give you a healthy looking glow. 

Overall this bag was a bit of a miss for me. I know a lot of girls who got there's love it. I like my bag, just not a love for me. My favorite bag was April's glambag. But we shall see what next month brings. Till next time, take care!

Mail Call!

I am super excited that this came in the mail the other day! I am in love with Sugarpill Cosmetics! If you're interested in seeing what I got then keep on reading.....

First off, I was able to snag the new Heart Breaker Palette! The colors are amazing and just like any other Sugarpill eyeshadow they are SUPER pigmented and blend so nicely. I cannot wait to try out new looks with this. I have the Burning Heart Palette and I swapped the Sweetheart Palette which I am regretting, and when I tried to buy a new one they were sold out =( boo! The packaging is just like the other 2 palettes except the front is blue. This little palette costs $34, I think or at least somewhere around that price range. 

Pigmentation: 5/5
Packaging: 5/5
Price: $$
I would definitely repurchase this if I ever hit pan!

Next I finally snagged Bulletproof single shadow! Every time I went to the site to buy it, they were always sold out. Again, I love the pigmentation and how lovely it blends. By far Sugarpill is my HG for wonderfully bright fun colors. I am going to start working on getting all their pigments next =D That is how much I love them lol. 
Pigmentation: 5/5
Packaging: 5/5
Price: $
Will definitely buy again!

I also got a sample of the Chromalust in Magpie! It's this gorgeous shimmery dark blue color, love it!

Here are all the swatches in natural daylight.

Project Use Up for April and May

So I have been attempting to use up a good chunk of my face products. For the past 2 months I have been able to use up a good chunk of it. Left to right I have used up, 

Sonia Kashuk Brush Cleaner I don't care for this product at all. The smell is a bit too overbearing for me when I use my brushes. It is also hard to get out the soapy residue sometimes. I won't be buying this again.

Sephora Daily Brush Cleaner I freaking love this product! I love the way it smells. It makes my brushes feel nice after they're cleaned with this on a daily basis. I got the small one just to try it out and now I am going to purchase the bigger sized bottle as soon as I can get to a Sephora store. 

The rest are a bunch of mark. face products. I didn't care for them at all but I wanted to use them up and not waste money. They didn't do much for my face. So I won't be purchasing them again. 

Thanks for reading, until next time take care!

Massive Collective Nail Polish Haul

Lately I have been highly into upping my nail polish collection, so over the past couple of weeks I have just been going nail polish crazy! If you're interested in seeing what I got and where I got it from then just keep on reading :)

First up we have a good chunk of the nail polish brand China Glaze. I have been obsessed with this brand ever since I bought "For Audrey" from Sally's Beauty Supply. I have been getting a wide range of colors lately. I bought all of them besides 3 from Head2Toe Beauty Store. I just did a random web search and found them. Their polishes are at a great price and range from different brands. I bought the China Glaze for only $3 each. 

Here's the rest of the China Glaze and all of my Sinful Colors polishes. I got the Sinful Colors from Target, I know you can them at other places I just can't remember where right now lol. They were only $2 each at Target. 

I decided to try out a magnetic nail polish and while I was at Sally's I found a couple but I chose the Finger Paints Polish which was around $4-$6 each. Also from Head2Toe Beauty I got 2 Color Club polishes for $3! I have been collecting Essie polishes for a while now. I just bought 2 from the new collection. I got these at Target, now these are pricey for nail polish, it's around $7-$9 depending on where you buy them at. 

Last but certainly not least my Sally Hansen and the new Maybelline Polishes. The Sally Hansen ones range from $3-$6 at Walmart. The Maybelline ones were $3 also at Walmart. 

Now all of these polishes are great quality and very pigmented. Almost all of them only require 2 coats at the most for the best results. So far my favorite brand would have to be China Glaze. There's a huge color variety at a great price! If you're interested in seeing swatches of any of these polishes just leave me a comment and I'll be sure to get that up as soon as I can.
