Uni VoxBox

NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia, $1.99

A great lipstick for $2? Yes, please. I have been looking for a flattering bright pink lip stick for a while and this is definitely it. The lipstick itself smells like candy (specifically Sweetarts) and the color lasts for about 12 hours. Though the candy smell isn't strong, I'm not a fan of it. However, the great lasting color > candy smell.

Rimmel Foundation & NYC Expert Last Lip Color

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation$4.99 - $5.49

If you happen to be looking for matte foundation that feels soft on your skin and is a great budget-buy, you should probably try the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. It's smooth, has medium coverage and blends really easily into your skin.

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure, $5.99 for colors / $7.99 for patterns

These fake nails are cute but unfortunately, they're too big for my own nails so I couldn't try them on. Feel free to tell me if you tried these and what you thought about the nails.

Pilot Acroball PureWhite$4.59 per 3-pack, $6.25 per 4-pack

I love great pens and this is - without a doubt - a beautiful pen. The Pilot Acroball PureWhite is a hybrid of a gel pen and ballpoint ink meaning that it has the vibrant color of a gel with the quick drying benefits of ballpoint ink. It writes incredibly smooth and is definitely a nice pen you should have in your bag.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance$3.99 - $4.99

I'm not sure what exactly to say about these but they're priced well!

Red Rose REAL TEA Premium Water Enhancer$4.49

I'm not usually a fan of water enhancers. They're too sweet and taste funny. However, the Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enhancer actually makes my water taste like slightly sweetened black tea. If you like iced tea and are looking for a water enhancer that has no dye or coloring, try this.

Influenster’s Jolly VoxBox Review

The Jolly VoxBox is holiday cheer in a box thanks to Influenster. I was  lucky enough to receive the jolly box and am excited to share with you what was inside in addition to my thoughts on the products!

And let the un-boxing begin!

Influenster Jolly VoxBox

Puffs Ultra Soft & Strong To Go Tissue Pack 

You never know when you will need a tissue. That's where Puffs' to-go tissue pack comes in. This cute package filled with super soft and strong tissues is a great on-the-go companion when you need it. Pick up a single pack to throw in your purse, car, or elsewhere, for $0.49.

NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eyeshadow in Long Beach Sands:

NYC Eyeshadow

This is a great choice for eyeshadow if you're looking for one on a budget! Each shade complements the other nicely and makes for a nice combination on your eyelids.

Find it on drugstore.com for $2.70.

Rimmel London NEW Show Off Lip Lacquer in Luna:

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer

Rimmel describes this product as "neither a lipstick nor a gloss... It's BIGGER than both!" I'm not really sure what that is supposed to mean, but basically, this product has the color of lipstick with the smooth shine of lip gloss. While the lip stick/gloss went on smoothly and wasn't sticky, the color I received (Luna) was not pretty. It was a shade of orange and did not look good on me. However, the lip lacquer felt smooth on my lips. I can't tell you how long it lasted because I wiped it right off (orange is just not my color!).

Find it for $5.49 - 5.99 at drugstores.

Skinny Cow Candy:

Skinny Cow Chocolates

I can never get enough of good chocolate so receiving a box of Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates in Peanut Butter Creme from Influenster was the best surprise. I had low expectations for this chocolate but I was happily surprised with how delicious the Skinny Cow chocolates actually are!

They're not too sweet and the peanut butter filling is deliciously creamy and a great complement to the chocolate. Want to know what's even better? Each pouch is only 130 calories!

If you are looking for low-calorie, delicious chocolate, I suggest you grab a box (or a few!) of Skinny Cow Candies! A box of the Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates include six pouches and each pouch includes 3 chocolates. You can find them for $3.99/box or $1.99/single bar or pouch.

Ducklings Mini Rolls:

I'm already obsessed with these Mini Ducklings rolls of duct tape. The one I received was blue and patterned with white hibiscus flowers. These Ducklings are too cute and are a great product to use when taping or decorating. You can get a Mini Duckling for yourself for $2-$3.

Beauty Review: Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish

Maybelline launched their Color Show Nail Polish line a few months ago and the colors look amazing. With 40 vibrant colors, you'll easily be able to find one that you love. I recently picked up two great colors for fall: Navy Narcissist and Blue Freeze.

 

I have yet to try the Blue Freeze, but I absolutely love the color of the metallic Navy Narcissist. Because one of the hottest nail trends for fall is metallics and because rich blues were all over the Fall runways, no doubt it's the perfect color.
