Influenster UniVoxBox Review.

     I am a member of a sample service review website called Influenster, which allows members to take surveys to review popular products. Members (who are called Influensters) are then rewarded by receiving VoxBoxes in the mail, which are fun boxes filled with all sorts of awesome samples, and you get them completely for free! I was a recent recipient of Influenster's UniVoxBox, which was sent out to college aged Influensters. I absolutely loved the items that I was sent, and I wanted to share them with y'all!

I kept trying and trying and for some reason this picture wouldn't upload in the right direction!! Ugh.

  • NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick in Forever Fuschia: I was really excited about receiving this item since y'all know that I love trying new make-up!! I hadn't previously tried much from the NYC line, so I was interested to see what their new lip products were like. I was very impressed with the staying power of this lipstick!! For a lip product that only cost a couple dollars, it felt surprisingly comfortable on my lips and lasted several hours. Influenster sent me the shade Forever Fuschia, and goodness is this shade bright! It reminds me a lot of MAC's popular Candy Yum Yum shade. I think this color was a bit too bright for me for everyday where, but it would be perfect for an OOTD post or a fun night out! I'm also excited to try other colors from this NYC lipstick line.
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation in Light Ivory: I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation! It has a very thick consistency, and a little goes a long way! It provides what I'd call full coverage, and I think this is something I would repurchase! The only thing that I didn't like was the shade. I was sent a shade called Light Ivory, and I think it might be slighty too pink for my skintone. But other I like the foundation itself a lot, and I would call this a good drugstore buy!
  • Pilot Acroball Pure White Pen: Pens are something that I am always losing. No matter how many new ones I buy, I always seem to lose them (where is it that they disappear to?!). So I was happy to see a brand new pen in this voxbox, along with a coupon to buy more pens! As far as this pen itself, I though that it was okay. I used it on a few homework assignments, and I found that the ink sometimes stopped and I had to make a few scribbles before it started working again. I was surprised it was doing that since it's a brand new pen! I probably wouldn't go out and purchase these specific pens unless they were on sale, but I will definitely still use this one since as I said, I'm always in need of pens! ;-)
  • Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enhancers in Black Currant Raspberry: Red Rose is just the lastest brand to release water enhancer drops. These tea drops come in a little bottle, and you're supposed to squeeze a drop or two into a cold or hot glass of water, depending on if you want hot or iced tea. I'll start by saying that I'm a huge tea fan. I love tea and drink it all the time, so this water enhancer that claimed to be tea had high expectations to beat! I was pleasantly surprised though at how tasty at was. I really liked the black currant raspberry flavor. I used this as a hot tea, but I would also like to experiment with how it would taste iced. 
  • Playtext Sport Fresh Balance Tampons: Uh, so I was sent tampons. And I tried them out during my time of the month. I really don't feel like this part of the review needs to be any more in depth for fear of being a TMI haha! I will say though that previously I have been very loyal to my U by Kotex tampons, and haven't liked any others that I've tried. But I did like these and would think about repurchasing them! I thought they were comfortable. (Is this TMI? I should move on to the nails now.)
  • Broadway Nails imPRESS Manicures: This was my favorite item in the voxbox!! I wore these nails to my sorority formal last weekend and got so many compliments on them! One of the main things that I loved about them is that they are fake nails, but they don't come with the expense of having them done at a salon, or the nastiness of the glue that comes in most DIY acrylic kits. These come with a thin adhesive already built into each nail, so you just press and go- it's really that easy! Mine stayed on for two days before falling off, and that was honestly longer then I expected. And when they fell off they didn't destroy my real nails underneath or leave any residue, they just came right off! LOVED this product and I will be repurchasing them for another formal event that I'm going to at the end of the month!

      Are any of you Influenster members? Did you receive the UniVoxBox or another recent box?
