Influenster Beauty Bloggers voxbox 2012

Yay! I received my Beauty Bloggers voxbox from Influenster a few weeks ago! I was so excited because I knew this box was going to have some awesome stuff in it! It arrived in the mail in a plastic bag with it labeled that it was received damaged. The box sounded like there were a million pieced of shattered glass in it and I though uh oh! I carefully opened it to find a mini candle in a million pieces! :(


I love Bath and Body works candles so I was a bit sad but it ok because these things happen! It was a bit tricky to clean up cause some of the pieces were so tiny and managed to get all over my counter somehow! But I cleaned and wiped the wax off of everything and then I was ready to get started trying out my products!

RIP candle :(

 This box came with some awesome goodies! As I am writing this post I am still trying out some of the items so there will be more individual posts coming up!

 The first item is from the haircare brand Goody. They are these amazing spiral metal pieces that replace bobby pins! I have them already and love them! My hair color is dark brown and these are for light brown so I am going to keep them to gig to a friend or put them in a giveaway! They really are awesome. You just twist your hair in a bun and then twist them into the bun on opposite sides. Your bun stays perfectly in tact! They are quick and easy and great to have on you if you want to throw your hair in a nice bun quickly.

 The next item are these Kiss eyelashes which I have not tried yet. It is actually a whole starter kit that comes with the glue. I am going to try a look using them and another product I received in the box. I will do a separate post on that.

 The next product is by Not Your Mothers. and it is a curl defining hair cream. I am excited to try this because I have straight/wavy hair. I recently got it cut and it is layered so it tends to be more wavy now. I will do a separate post on this product to let you know how it works for me!

 This eyeshadow set is by NYC and I plan to play around with it and do a look using this palette and the lashes! I can't wait to try it out! I comes with a primer and illuminator! I will do a separate post and review on my look I come up with!

 These two items are by No7. I have never tried this brand but I have always wanted too. The left one is a cleansing lotion which I have never tried one before. On the right is a night cream. I have been trying them out the past couple of days and I have to say I am very happy with them. I absolutely LOVE the night cream! Its smells amazing and feels great on my skin. I don't like my night creams to be very heavy and I find that this one is perfect for me. It is not too heavy but not too light. Once I run out of the night cream I am using I think I might have to pick this one up! The cleansing lotion is a new concept for me. The directions say to put it on and then wipe it off. I have tried it a few times and it does feel really nice on my skin. It is almost like a gel lotion that doesn't absorb. you wipe it off and it just cleans and refreshes your skin. I think it would be great to keep in your purse or for travel. you don't need water with it which is pretty cool.

 This little product id called E Boost and it is supposed to be one of those powders you just add to water. It give you energy and immunity. I have not tried it yet but I will add my review to another post once I get the chance to try it out!

Lastly would have been my candle but obviously it broke :( I did get a great coupon thought! I love love love bath and body works candles! The fall scents are my favorite!! Leaves is a must, Autumn, Autumn day, farm stand apple, and marshmallow fireside are staple fall scents for me!! Go check them out!

Thanks for reading and if you have any questions feel free to comment below!!!

Here is what it looks like online and in the store. It comes with the products in the bag and a sleeve  over the bag with the picture.


 The bag it comes in is very pretty! It can be used as a makeup bag or even an evening clutch! It is not too small but not too big and it is a good quality bag.


 In the bag it comes with a Nars Body Glow, A sephora by OPI nail polish in looks like rain dear, A bare minerals eye color in good fortune, Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara in Black, Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre Gold, Laura Mercier Baked Eye Color - Wet/Dry in Black Karat, Bare Escentuals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Trail Blazer, Stila Duo Shimmer Powder in Kitten, and a Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Starfish
