So I got my first #VoxBox in the mail right before the holidays. So the basic premise is that by joining Influenster, I get the box for free and then share my thoughts on social media and on my blog. I figured it would be a good way to get my name out there a bit more and perhaps pick up some new followers for the blog.
The box included:
Rimmel Gentle Eye Make up Remover ($7.49)
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eye Liner ($4.49)
NY Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum ($1.99)
Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea (sample)
Boots #7 Protect and Perfect Advanced Serum (sample)
Fruit Vines Bites Strawberry ($1.28-$1.79)
Eco Tools Hair Brush ($10.99)
McCormick Gourmet Thyme ($4.79)
First up...the NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum...okay first off - I really love the color. It's this pinky brown that looks very natural. It also is very smooth and moist, I really like how it felt. Given the price range, if all of their lipsticks are this nice, I may be switching.
Next up I tried Rimmel's Scandaleye's Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eye Liner. Holy Cow does that stuff last. I put it on about 6.45am and it was still on when I took it off at 10pm that night. I can see where it would be great for pirating in the summer! The only downside which I think is a factor of the waterproofness is that it doesn't smudge well. So it's definitely more for defined eyelines.
Next up, I made some broiled porkchops with the McCormick Gourmet Thyme. I use Thyme frequently in my cooking and so loved having a fresh bottle. The minute you opened the bottle the warm slightly spicy scent fills your nose. The thyme itself is crisp and has a bit of bite. It adds a great flavor to meat without overpowering.
Next up is the EcoTools Volume Hairbrush. I was a bit unsure about this but it turns out to be really cool. I'm not sure about the whole drys faster thing but I really liked how it dried my hair without getting tangles
Then the Geeklet and I tried the Fruit Vines Strawberry. They were sweet but honestly not as good as Twizzlers!
Anyway, that's all I've managed to review so far.
