I recently joined Influenster, which is a community of “trendsetters, social media hotshots, and educated consumers” (their words, not mine!) who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influensters get to try new products from top brands, which is a pretty exciting part of the program. My friend, Maddie, introduced me, and I was so excited to get my first VoxBox this week – the BellaBox, filled with tons of exciting beauty products (and well, chocolate, so there’s that!). If you want to be a part of Influenster, click here [yup, that’s a referral link – I’d love if you used it!].
I’m reviewing all of the items that were in my VoxBox today! I think that I may be a little adventurous for the next box and do a vlog. Exciting stuff, right?
EcoTools Complexion Collection Mattifying Finish Brush: This makeup brush is designed with specific cuts to help eliminate fine lines, dark circles and oily skins. I had to dust off my Clinique powder to try this brush out, as I typically just use tinted moisturizer and blush/bronzer. I love how it looked (truly very matte), and the brush is incredibly soft. I need a new set of makeup brushes!
Verdict: I would buy another EcoTools Complexion brush, but I personally wouldn’t buy this one, due to the fact I don’t normally wear powder.
DOVE® Fruit: Blueberries: Dove recently introduced a new dark chocolate product which has real fruit (cranberries, cherries or blueberries) inside. I am not going to lie – it was heavenly. I seriously ate a handful, then handed the bag to Sasha because I knew I would just eat the entire thing. Sasha didn’t even believe it was dark chocolate at first. Seriously, seriously smooth taste. Yum.
Verdict: I would totally buy these for a friend as part of a hostess gift, but could not keep them in our house because they would be eaten in five minutes!
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara created by Kate Moss: This mascara wand is in a “broken heart shape” which I’ve never seen before. I was a little perplexed by how to use it at first, and I’m sure I’m not quite applying it correctly. The description claims “No clumps!” which I completely agree with. I normally use Maybelline Volum Express The Falsies, which is definitely more clumpy, but I don’t hate that about it.
Verdict: It’s a great mascara for those wanting quick application, clump free lashes. I didn’t love it enough to toss my Maybelline though!
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss: I love the color of the lipstick I received in my box (#33), which is a pretty bright pink. It’s totally Kate Moss. It claims to be long lasting, and it really did last throughout Saturday morning and well into the afternoon.
Verdict: The pink is a little too bright for everyday wear, but I will absolutely buy this line in another color.
Not Your Mother’s Deja Vu Do Style Extender: This is my jam. My friends all know that I will go as long as possible between hair washes, as I have really dry hair that needs all of the moisture and oil it can get. This style extender is a godsend. Also, another perk is that it smells like berries. Yes, please.
Verdict: Yes, yes, yes. Definitely buying this.
Club W: The online wine club personalizes wine choices to each person’s vino preferences. I browses the website and thought it was simple to navigate, and they even have an iPhone app.
Verdict: I had the opportunity to get a free bottle of wine if I purchased two, and although I was tempted, I really love buying wine at our local Specs and chatting to the sales team there, as they are really knowledgable.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs: This was my second favorite product, behind the Style Extender. It’s basically an instant tanning lotion, but it leaves a really pretty matte finish which truly looks like you’re wearing panty hose (well, not like a grandma, but you get the drift). I probably should have opted for the Light color, but praying that the Medium works as soon as my summer tan(ish) starts to build.
Verdict: 100% buying this item. It’s wonderful.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.
