Influenster Vox Box!

Hi my beautiful people,

For the second time in my life, I was able to do a review on the influenster VoxBox!! Yayyy!!! For those of you who have never heard of a voxbox, it is a company that gets you to test out products from other companies and let them know whether it was a "yay" or "nay". So, they sent me a box full of goodies this month to try out.

Overall, I was not too satisfied with the box. It was called the "varsity voxbox". Meaning, it is geared for college students and what they think college students need. This is my third year of college and I just did not feel that certain things in the box were really a necessity of a college student. It honestly seemed a lot more high school in my opinion. Here's what they sent me:

1. Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash
Daily Clear® Refreshing Superfruit Wash
They sent 3 samples and 3 coupons for this product. I believe this was one of the two best products for the box. This is an actual necessity for a college student because you're constantly outside and sometimes sweating and you just need that boost of refreshment for your face! This product get a YAY!

2. Airheads Xtremes Bites

I am going to be a bit biased on this one because I just do not like sour/chewy I honestly did not try it. I gave it to my roommate and she absolutely loved it. As a college student, I try to eat on the healthier side because I'm constantly running so I did not see it's purpose in the box. For anyone who loves airheads, I assume that you will love this part of the box! This product gets a Nay!

3. Kiss Nail Dress

These are cute, but very middle/high school to me. I know that I have only been out of high school for 2.5 years, but I feel like it's a little to young for me. This product gets a Nay!

Hmmm...I feel that lip gloss is universal for all ages, so I can see why they put it in here. The gloss itself is a bit sticky...but a gloss is a I can't say to much about it. :-). The pink color was just a big high school to me as well. This product gets a YAY!

Oh My Jesus! I love me some Tide Pods!!! This has to be the most brilliant idea in the world! All you do is pop it in the washer before you start your clothes and then you have a big smile on your face because you don't have to pick up that big huge box or jug of tide liquid detergent. Get's a YAY with no questions asked!

I feel that with this box, they were trying to make it young. But, I feel as though they went a little to young for it to reach out to college students. The two best things in there for college students were the face wash and the pods. So if you're a college student, stop reading this and hurry to Walgreens and get it!

I hope you all enjoyed this review and leave any comments or questions below.


Disclaimer: The products were sent to me from Influenster and I did NOT purchase any of it with my own money or pay for the shipping.

For the second time, I have participated in the Carabox. For anyone who does not know what the Carabox is, it is where you get paired with other people. One of them will send something to you and you will send to the other one. The good thing about it is that you will have the opportunity to meet two new ladies every time that you sign up. This month, I was assigned to Tiffany and Cassi. 

I had to send to Tiffany this time. Tiffany was such a sweetheart and I really enjoyed my time of getting to know her. As soon as Tiffany puts up a link for what I sent her, I will attach it to this post.

Cassi had to send to me. She was so sweet. She was really young, and I could not believe she was as young as she is because I could not tell...AT ALL! Well, until she told me...and I still can't believe it. Getting to know her was so much fun and she sent me some goodies...

She sent me the Halloween Oreo's. Me and my friend's will definitely be enjoying these on Halloween while we're watching scary movies! She sent me 2 pairs of Disney's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" socks. It's funny because I have a secret obsession with socks...shhhhh! She sent me a cute glittery orange nail polish. Tons of Reese's...That is my favorite candy in this entire world!!! And she made me a picture with a "B" on it...for Britt...of course! She attached a note to the package as well, but for privacy reasons, that will not be attached. One thing that I do love about the fall is that MY FAVORITE COLOR IS ORANGE and everything is orange!

If you guys would like to sign up for the next Carabox click here. It's definitely an amazing experience and I suggest it to everyone.

Talk to you soon loves,

I'M BACK!!!!

Hey loves, 

I am back! And better than ever. I know it has been a while since I have been posting stuff. I have had so much going on and needed to take some time off from blogging. During my time away, one of the things I was thinking about is how I can rebrand myself to come back better than ever. One of the best ways for me to do this is for me to get you all to provide me with feedback and let me know what you like me to post and what you do not like me to post a lot of. My vision for the blog is to continue to focus heavily on beauty and some fashion. I will be incorporating some things about college life and a healthy lifestyle as well. I am so excited about coming back and I cannot wait to put smiles back on all of your beautiful faces!!!

May Favorites!!!

Hi loves!!!!!!!!!

OMG! This year is going by so fast...we're already in June! This is so crazy! Welp, I am about to share with you guys some of the products that I absolutely adored for the month of May. There were so many products that I loved this month, but I picked the products that I reached for the most to put into the post.

1. Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette

This palette is absolutely amazing. I can create anything from a night time deep smokey eye to a calm day time neutral eye. This palette is really good for traveling and last minute makeup decisions when you don't have a lot of time to sit and decide on what you want to put on your eyes. This palette retails for $36 at Ulta.

2. Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow in Not Just Nudes

These shadows have been sitting in my collection for a long time. I prefer powder shadows over cream any day. But, when I was watching a video from one of my favorite youtubers (can't remember which one) I learned that they used these shadows as a base. It is weird because I just happened to run out of lid primer the same day I saw the video. Since using these as a base, I have not even purchased another primer because I feel they make my shadows look better and stay on longer! Retails for $5.99 at Ulta and most drugstores.

3. MAC Studio Fix Fluid

I am in the shade NC45. A long time ago, when I wore MAC Cosmetics foundations, it would break my skin out, so I never wore it since then. But, one day I went to the MAC counter in Belk to see if it would break me out, hoping it wouldn't break me out...and IT DIDN'T! When I tried it on, I fell in love and I had to buy it! I don't wear it everyday because it is a heavy foundation...but I do wear it a few times a week. Retails for $27 at MAC.

4. MAC PlushGlass in Nice Buzz

I bought this one because my boyfriend and I went on a date and I let the guy at the MAC counter do my makeup and this was the gloss he used on my lips, so I kind of had to buy it to keep the complete look that he created. I love this gloss and I wear it like everyday! It retails for $20 at MAC.

5. Lorac TanTalizer Highlighter and Bronzer Matte Duo

This is an everyday must have essential item! Enough said! This comes in two sizes...the smaller size is $12 and the big (huge) size is $32. I have the smaller size and have had it for about a month and a half...use it everyday and am nowhere near close to hitting pan.

6. Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara

As you all should know from my previous blog posts, once I get set on a certain mascara, I stick to it for a long time and don't use anymore. However, I am not doing that anymore! I tried a lot of different ones this month and this just happened to be my favorite. This was actually one of the many products sent to me from L'Oreal (I love them so much). I check on how much this mascara retails for and its $21. I will be posting a dupes post for this for those of you who do not want to pay $21 for a mascara.

7. NYX Blush in Terra Cotta

The color in the picture is not the true is a lot deeper than that! Its like a very deep pink color. I wear this everyday! Almost :) I believe I got this from Ulta for $5.99.

8. NYX Photo-Loving Primer

This foundation is very comparable to the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I love this and it only costs $12.99.

9. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Porcelain Pink

The color of this lipstick is absolutely gorgeous! This retails for $9.99 at CVS and I got on sale for $2.49 with their 75% off sale.

10. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Get Nutty

The color is showing up as a red in the picture but it comes off as a light pink on the lips.

11. Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick in 111: Kiss of Life

Everyone who loves lipsticks already knows about the Kate Moss Collection! Enough Said! I think I had this lipstick on one of my previous favorites post and I just love this lipstick. It is $4.99 at CVS.

As always, I hope that you all enjoy this post and give it a +1. Don't forget to subscribe to my blog and keep a look out for upcoming giveaways!

My Foundation Shades + A Mini Review of Each!

Hi loves,

I know it has been a while since I have done an actual blog post. I have been so busy and trying to get a bit of rest since I have been out of school. This post is to help someone who may be trying to find out what their foundation shade is and to help someone who may want to know a little bit about a particular foundation.

In the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation, I am in the shade Intensity 4.0. This is a really good foundation because it is non-transferable and it does last all day. I would not recommend this foundation to a person with really sensitive skin, because I do not have really sensitive skin and it leaves a few tiny red bumps on my face after I take it off. $36

True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup Golden Beige - N6.5 - Face - L'Oreal Paris

In the L'Oreal True Match Foundation, I am in the shade Golden Beige (N6.5). I love this foundation because it is so light weight. I have always been a fan of the True Match foundations because their is such a large color range for people. I do get a bit oily in my t-zone with this foundation, but once I blot and dash some powder it is good to go! $9-$13.99


In the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation, I am the shade California Tan (HDF 08). I like this foundation because it gives a very light coverage for those days that I don't want to wear a lot of makeup. It is also a really a really affordable HD Foundation. $15

In the foundation Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h I am in the shade 430 bisque c. This is my all time favorite foundation ever. I love it because it does not oxidize heavily into the skin causing me to look darker throughout the day. It is a more matte finish foundation which helps to control my oily skin...I love it. It is a pretty expensive foundation. $45.

ColorStay Makeup With Softflex for Combination/Oily Skin
In the Revlon ColorStay Foundation, I am in the shade Rich Ginger. This foundation is the best drugstore foundation to control combination/oily skin. $10.99-13.99.

 Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15

In the MAC Studio Fix Fluid, I am in the Shade NC45. This is probably the most popular higher end foundation that everyone raves about...and it definitely lives up to the hype. They have a wide range of colors for all skin tones and I love it. This is one of the more affordable high end foundations. $27.

Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup
In the Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup, I am in the shade Fresh Golden. I love this brand just because it is really good and healthy for the skin. My skin feels so clean when I wear this foundation, wear as most other foundations does not make me feel that way.

I have so many more foundations that I have and wear but these are the ones that I pull for the most (except the Estee). If you guys would like to know about the rest of the foundations that I have, because I have several, just leave a comment below and let me know. I hope that all enjoy this post.
