Influenster UniVoxBox

TGIF Ladies!!

Yesterday I received my UniVoxBox in the mail from Influenster. Influenster is a super neat site that lets you review products that you use daily and then periodically they email out a survey link to the users and if you meet the criteria that the next box is aiming for, they mail you a box of complimentary products to test and review! 

I did receive all items at no cost, but the opinions are all my own, no sugar coating here:)

This box included:

Broadway Nails imPress Press on Manicure
I was very, very skeptical about these. The first thing I thought about was the press on nails I had when I was little that popped off and could take out an eye. But I sat down, sized out my nails, prepped the nail with the cleanse pad, then peeled and stuck 'em down. That was Wednesday night. They survived an eight hour work shift, which I deal with my hands all day, lifting weights at the gym, doing dishes, laundry and other household duties a long with everyday wear and tear. Not a single one has even came close to popping off. I'm very impressed with them actually and I know I will buy them. It gave me a fast, pretty and lasting manicure in under 10 minutes. They come in array of colors and patterns. Ideally I would say these would be great for events, dates, or any time you  need fancy nails in under 10 minutes for under 10 dollars.

Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia
I'm not a lipstick gal, never have been, it just always looks out of place on this face of mine. But I strongly believe in good reviews and the reviews are only good if the product gets tested, so I put lipstick on the pig. It went on very smoothly, where I did get it on my skin, it removed easily but not so easily from the lips - in the good way. It didn't smear all over my cup badly, a little residue but nothing intense. The color was vibrant and fun. It lasted through out the evening with no issues and when I kissed my husband it didn't leave terrible stamp marks on him. If you are on a budget and are a lipstick lover, then you are going to hit the jackpot with this one.

Pilot Acroball PureWhite
The picture says it all. I write all day and I absolutely hate the pens that gunk up, indent the paper instead of writing and come out rough. The Acroball is a fine point that writes smoothly with a dark color that doesn't alter throughout your words.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

I like a nice light foundation when it comes to my skin, I typically use BB creams, but I wore this one three days, three different ways. First day with primer, second with no primer and the third mixed with my BB cream. With the Matte Mousse, a little goes a long way. It covers blemishes and imperfections perfectly but it is a heavier foundation. Not so heavy that it felt caked on but heavy that I felt like I had more on and my husband asked why I had extra foundation on also. My BB creams don't really cover blemishes but they give me the light airy finish I like. So when I mixed half BB Cream and half Matte Mousse. I really like the outcome. Days 1 & 2 I wasn't a big fan of how it wore, because it seemed to rub off a little too easily. But on Day 3 when I mixed them I loved the finish. It was heavy enough to cover blemishes but doesn't weigh down my skin or make me feel overdone. My husband felt I looked "back to normal" and it didn't rub off in streaks so easily either.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance

Okay ladies, let's be real. When it's that time of the month, the last thing you want is any odor. I've always used Playtex brand. The Sport ones I really like when I'm running or at the gym or even at work because they seem to move with your body more. I've never had leaks when using Playtex. You can only say so many things about tampons, but if you haven't tried Playtex Sport and you are active all month long- I recommend you do try them and I'm sure you'll be pleased.

Red Rose REAL TEA Premium Water Enhancer

It's no secret that I love tea. This to me is like the heavens opening up and dropping it into my hands. Tea any time, any where- I'm all for it. The downside for me, was I got a "lightly sweetened" one. I do not do sweet teas. I like my tea like I like opinions- no sugar. I didn't realize this, made a glass and took a big swig. The actual taste of the tea itself was good, but I couldn't do the sweet part. If they had the unsweetened version in a water enhancer squeeze then I'd be stockpiling my house with it!

Again these are all my opinions, but I received the items complimentary.

Do you use influenster?


We are going out for dinner and coming home for a movie, what are your plans this weekend?



  1. That looks awesome! What's greater than free stuff???

  2. I got a Rimmel Influenster box at the beginning of the month, but it only had a god aweful shade of lipstick. I'll try it, but won't wear it. My little sister even thought it was terrible. :-/ not as impressed with Influenster as of yet, but I'm new. Have a great weekend!
