I received the Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox and I was ecstatic when I opened it up. I intended to make a video but sadly I was too excited. lol There were some amazing goodies in here and one flop that I wish they would stop sending me... You know who you are... ¬_¬ *coughcoughEBOOSTcoughcough*
Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin-This thing is amazing. I have such a large amount of hair and sometimes its hard to find ways of keeping it up and out of my face without using a tie that can be damaging.
No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Balm and Night Cream for Dry/Very Dry skin- This was a bonus item and I had high hopes but it left a heavy film over my skin and felt greasy. After using an exfoliater to remove the dry patches I thought this would provide a nice clean feeling but made me feel like I needed to wash my face again after using.
NYC IndividualEyes Dark Eyes palette- I have always been a fan of NYC. It brings back fond memories of my first makeup experiences as a teenager. This brand has grown up big time but still lacks a little. They included a Primer and cream highlighter. The cream base is too wet/greasy to adequately provide a base for staying power for eye shadows and I found it creased really easily. The shadows themselves work really well together to complete a subtle smoky eye. They don't immediately pack a punch in pigmentation but are build-able for a deeper look.
Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream- First off let me say YUM! This stuff smells good enough to eat. I have a natural curl to my hair that disappears the longer my hair gets. I was unable to get this to hold anything more than a slight undefined wave in my hair but I did not give this a fair shot and I hear great things. I will definitely need to try this again to be 100% sure it won't work for me. (photo also shows use of spin pin holding up top half of hair.)
