Influenster Freebie Time

Hey guys! Today it's time to share some super fun products with you. I am part of the Influenster world and get to try out some fun products and let you know what I think. I recently received the UniVoxBox since I am a college student.

So here goes nothing. :)

Can I just say receiving a VoxBox is pretty much like Christmas morning. I don't do surprises. Like ask my husband, he knows I just can't handle it. Can NOT. But getting this box seemed to take forever. I forgot about it for a while, and then when it came I was dashing back to my house to rip open the box. I tried to do it all daintily so I could take some nice pictures for you guys, but really it took everything out of me not to just rip the package open.

First think I noticed when I opened my VoxBox was the Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fushia- retail value is $1.99

If you have been reading my blog lately, you know I have become makeup crazed lately, so it's only destiny that I received this awesome new lip color to try out. It is the perfect for spring and summer. I have been trying out some drug store lipsticks lately, and this one is definitely at the top of my list. It is creamy, buttery, and practically impossible to wipe off if you try. And I have the dryest lips, so finding a lipstick that works with my cracky and flakiness is next to impossible. I was really impressed with this lipstick and plan on getting a few more colors. For $2 they can't be beat! If you follow me on instagram you have already seen my selfie time, but here I am rockin the Forever Fushia!

Next product in the lineup was the Pilot Acroball PureWhite- retail value $4.59 for a 3 pack.

Now this little puppy is smooth. I like a nice gliding pen, especially when doing school work. Oh and makings lists. I am definilty a list person. I have an ipad and an iphone so I thought this could replace my pen and paper lists, but sure enough I love making a list and crossing off something when it's done. Ahhhh. Such a happy feeling. Little tangent there. But really a nice pen can't be beat. I always tend to reach for my favorite smooth gliding pens so I am sure this will fit in nicely with my favs.

Next product in the box was Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enhancer- retail value $4.49

This product is just a small bottle you squeeze into your water to make it into tea. Unfortunately I wasn't able to test out this product because for religious reasons I don't drink black tea. You can learn about my faith in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints here. Send me some herbal tea and I will review it all day long!

Another makeup product in the box was the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation- retail $5.49.

Now crazy thing is, I already own this exact foundation but in a darker shade. This shade is a little to fair for me, especially after going on a family camping trip this weekend. But, I am a big fan of this product. I tend to be an oily combination skin girl. I have the stay matte primer, foundation, and power, and I can honestly say they are some of my holy grail products. I am a fan. Big thumbs up to this product. I'm sorry for all the selfies, but here is me actually wearing the product on my face. 

The next product was Broadway Nails ImPRESS Press-On Manicure-retail value $5.99.

I haven't tried these out just yet. I haven't been a big DIY stick on nail girl, but I will definitely let you know what I think after I try them out. The purple color I got is very fun and bright. The packaging is also clever since it looks like a nail polish bottle.

Last but not least I received Playtex Sport Fresh Balance-retail $4.99.

Ok ladies, things are about to get real up in here. Never did I think I would be reviewing tampons on my blog, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. I did have the opportunity (?) to use these. I have to say I was less than impressed. I am a Tampax Pearl Girl. I have strayed a few times, but I always go back. These were no different. Let's just say these have some issues. Serious issues. Giant thumbs down for me. I will never purchase these.

Overall, it was really fun getting some new products to try out. If you want to join Influenster just leave me a comment and I will send you an invite!

*I did receive all the products I am mentioning today complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.

Gold Dipped Planter

I recently have been bombarding our apartment with greenery. I'm not sure if it's the spring season that just hit me with the desire for more plants, but I love them! I had this pot above in plain black, but I am loving all things white and gold. It was easy to spruce up this pot and give it new life. I'm sure you have something around the house you can put a few new coats of paint on and adore the finished result. 

I used some left over white and gold paint and some foam brushes I already had laying around the house. I didn't tape off the edge because I liked the messy "dipped" in gold look. Being perfect is overrated in decor (and in life sometimes). The pot had a cool design that still shows that I am in love with. I am ready to gold up everything now! 

I just bought two new succulent plants I'm going to pot soon so stay tuned for what I do with these two cuties.
