Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox

I was super excited to receive another Influenster VoxBox yesterday! This one is for beauty bloggers and was full of fun beauty products to try.

If you haven't heard of Influenster, it is a program that provides free VoxBoxes of products in return for reviews and word of mouth sharing! It's a lot of fun, and I still have three invitations, so if you're interested, please leave me a comment or send me an email!

This is what I got in the Beauty Bloggers VoxBox.

The shipping was super fast on this one! For once, I was one of the first to receive it, and it arrived here the day after my tracking email came.

It was full of lots of fun things to try...I was surprised by how many items there actually were. And happily, they were all new items to me (besides the candle...but that is at least a new scent for me!)


This is a NYC New York Colors IndividualEyes Custom Compact. The shades I got were Dark Shadows, and as you can see, it's a black, gray, and white palette. I love that it comes with the primer and illuminator in the palette...this will be handy for keeping in my bag. I've never tried this brand, but the prices are super reasonable so I'm excited to see if I like it!

This is a Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit. These are super dramatic and thick! I love that they come with the glue and an application tool. I haven't mastered applying lashes yet so I am happy to get these to try. These will be great for a fun Halloween look.

This is a White Barn mini candle from Bath & Body Works! I absolutely love these candles, I think they are the best ones out there for the price. This scent is Nutmeg and Spice and it smells ridiculously good and cozy. Also included is a coupon code for $10 full sized three wick candles, which is about half price. Awesome. I can share this code with you, as well. If you enter the coupon code F126566 while making an online purchase between now and 10/28, you can get up to 5 candles at the discount price.

This is EBOOST drink mix. It's full of natural ingredients and promises to boost your mood, energy, and immunity. Sounds good, I will try it today!

These are Goody Simple Styles spin pins. They are meant to make a simple updo easy. They also come with directions for three different styles to try. I LOVE THESE. I wore them yesterday and they are awesome and held my bun in place. Once you get the hang of using them, they're truly awesome. I had never even heard of these before but I'll be buying them.

This is Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl Defining Cream. This is full of grape seed and jasmine and promises to encourage natural curls and waves while getting rid of frizz and flyaways. My hair is more wavy than curly but I am excited to see what this does for me. 

This is an either/or product...some boxes got Frizz Control cream by the same brand.

And finally, I was lucky enough to get a couple of bonus products. In some boxes, Influenster includes products that are offered only to some recipients, based on score or demographics. This month, there were two such possibilities, and I was lucky enough to get one of them (it's actually a set of two products.)

This is the Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion and Night Cream by Boots No. 7. The cleansing lotion is a waterless cleanser that dissolves makeup and leaves the skin clean without needing rinsing or a toner. The night cream is a hydrating moisturizer. I'm always on the lookout for a new cleanser and moisturizer, so these are a very welcome addition to my box!

Some other ladies got a Vitabath Fragrance mist instead of this bonus.


All in all, I am pretty blown away by this VoxBox. I will use and enjoy every single item in it! 

Have you joined Influenster yet?

Nice stuff! I am glad you reviewed those hair twists, I have always wanted to try them. I haven't been on influenster in awhile, but I did review my last box and all the products on the site itself. Maybe I will go back and poke around to see if I can get one of the next boxes :)

yousoldtheworld said...

Do you mean like, to add a product and review it? If so, they are still working on that feature, we can currently only review the items they have added, but they said within a week or so we should be able to submit items.


The best way right now to get your points is to unlock as many badges as you can and work on the goals each badge gets you, then review items related to each badge. :)

yousoldtheworld said...

They seem to have a lot of boxes now and coming up, I'd give it a shot!


Really liking the hair twists!

yousoldtheworld said...

I love it! Let me know if you get all the same items! :)

Krystal Caracol said...

OMG! So Jelly! :) I have been trying to get my hands on those NYC palettes, but my NYC displays are always out. This looks like such a fun and exciting box!!

yousoldtheworld said...

It seems really nice, especially for the price! I haven't tried it on my eyes yet, but I swatched it and it seems nicely pigmented. I might have to check out the other available shades!

Krystal Caracol said...

I've been playing with their eye shadow duos and those are pretty nice for the price too ;)

I love those hairpins. I use the shorter ones and the hold my hair in place and stay hidden. Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves is a hilarious name for a product! It makes me wish I had curly hair, so that I would have a reason to try it. Great Box!

Ashley said...

Influenster is awesome. It really seems like this relaunch was a very good thing they got even better. I really want to try the spin pins but I just cut off a bunch of my hair I don't know if I have enough left to pull those off.

yousoldtheworld said...

I was really impressed with them. I normally have no luck with updos because my hair tends to be heavy and slippery, and these held it really well!


And I agree about the Not Your Mother's product, I lol'd! My hair is wavy rather than curly, but I tried it anyway and it left it nice and soft and frizz free. :)

yousoldtheworld said...

I agree! The site is much better now and more interactive.


I love the spin pins...my hair is difficult when it comes to updos so I will be buying more of these!

Great review for the box, those lashes are perfect haha...so bummed I wasn't able to get it (but I loved the Naturals box).

Great review! I'm jelly of your boots - I got the vitabath. I have 2 sets of those goody pins - my hair is too thick if you want to trade :)

yousoldtheworld said...

Thanks! I personally was bummed that I missed out on the Naturals box, but I'm super glad that I got this one! :)


Entered and followed!

yousoldtheworld said...

Love it! Updated. :)

yousoldtheworld said...

I really like the Boots products! I kind of wish I had gotten the Vitabath even though I have a million fragrance mists, but the Boots is probably a more useful sample for me, lol :)




My trade list is currently empty, I will totally keep that in mind as soon as I get it filled back up! May be trading some things from Glossybox this month if I get repeat products...assuming my box ever comes. Sigh.
