Influenster Burberry Vox Box Swatches on Dark Skin

If you haven’t signed up for Influenster yet you’re seriously missing out! It’s a completely free site that allows to review and ask questions about literally any product and sends you boxes of free stuff to review if you’re a blogger or influencer. I’ve been a member of Influenster for years and have received some amazing boxes from brands like Maybelline, Hourglass, Armani, and more. You can read all about it and sign up here!

The latest box of goodies to hit my doorstep was the new Burberry Vox Box filled with luxury liquid lipsticks and more. When I first received the campaign email, I was bouncing off the walls because I’m a die hard fan of liquid lipsticks and just knew that Burberry was going to knock my socks off with their luxurious packaging and superior quality.

Tint Your Eyes with Armani This Fall!

Giorgio Armani 12 Gold Ashes, 24 Nude Smoke, 21 Fur Smoke Eye Tint, Eccentrico Instant High Volume & Definiton Mascara

The eyes are the window to the soul. Whether they’re smokey, natural or winged, your eyes say a lot about you before you even speak. Most days, I like to bust out a quick wing to add a little flair and quick glimpse into my glittering soul. Sometimes, though, I love to go all out with eyeshadow to boost my creativity and express my style. I usually just pick up the eyeshadow palette pick of the day and get to blending but Influenster has given me a new way to play up my eyes–with liquid.

Liquid eyeshadows aren’t new to the makeup world but they haven’t become a huge hit just yet. It seems that this will change very soon as we’re starting to see more liquid eyeshadow formulas from brands like Maybelline and now Giorgio Armani. The Giorgio Armani Eye Tints are a new collection of liquid eyeshadows in neutral shades ranging from beige to green in shimmer and matte finishes. Armani describes the formula as a long lasting tint with the smoothness of a cream that yields intense, vibrant eye looks. The Eye Tints have a very thin, lightweight formula that’s creamy but not too emollient so it doesn’t slide around much at all. Instead, it seems to offer a precise application that’s easy to blend with a pat of a finger or a synthetic brush.

Maybelline Nude Thrill & Rebel Red Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color Review

Maybelline 10 Nude Flush, 35 Rebel Road Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color

There’s nothing like waking up to a box of liquid lipsticks! Recently, Influenster sent over a couple of the new Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colors for me to test out for you guys and I couldn’t be happier to tell you all about them. It was only a matter of time before Maybelline hopped in the liquid lipstick arena after the trend took the makeup world by storm. While it took a little time, Maybelline finally whipped up their own liquid matte lipstick formula with the new Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colors. The Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color line features 10 shades ranging from nude to vampy for just $8 a pop. Do they live up to the matte liquid lipsticks we know and love?

Liquid lipsticks are everywhere now. When liquid lipsticks first began trending you could really only find them online. Today, you can walk into your nearest drugstore and pick up a few liquid lipsticks that are actually pretty decent quality without the usual $15-$20 price tag. Maybelline is one of the best drugstore brands in the building when it comes to lipsticks so it was only a matter of time before they hopped in the liquid lipstick ring with their own line of Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colors. I recently received a couple of them in my Influenster Maybelline Vox Box to test out for you guys and I’m pretty excited because Maybelline’s lipsticks have yet to disappoint me.

Maybelline Makes Fit Happen!

Influenster Maybelline Fit Me Vox Box

Remember when I told you a while back that Maybelline was adding more shades to Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation? Well they’ve finally arrived in stores and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve been a fan of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation for years so I was excited to try the new Matte + Poreless formula when it first launched even though the shade range wasn’t too expansive. Especially when it came to darker complexions. Thankfully, Maybelline heard our cries and relaunched Fit Me Matte + Poreless in 8 new shades to better suit fair and deep complexions. Yay!

Influenster decided to help Maybelline celebrate the relaunch of Fit Me Matte + Poreless by including them in their latest Vox Box. In case you’ve missed my previous posts, Influenster is a completely free program that sends you free products to review in exchanging for writing reviews and posting on social media. I’ve received quite a few Vox Boxes over the years so I wasn’t too surprised when I was selected to receive the new Maybelline Make Fit Happen Vox Box. I actually already own the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation but I don’t mind receiving another bottle or telling you all about it again.

Kerastase Resistance Bain Therapiste Shampoo Review

Kerastase Resistance Bain Therapiste Shampoo

It’s always a good day when you receive a Vox Box of goodies from Influenster! Recently, I received the Kerastase Vox Box which included a shampoo and conditioner from the Kerastase Resistance Collection. I don’t usually get too amped over shampoo and conditioner but I was excited to try some new goodies that I’ve never heard of.

After doing a quick search, I discovered that Kerastase is a French-based luxury haircare line with some pretty impressive products that garner rave reviews from all hair types. I usually stick to my tried and true budget on a beauty hair brands but I’m completely blown away by the quality of Kerastase.

Kerastase Vox Box First Impressions

It’s always a good day when I receive a Vox Box from Influenster! Most times, I receive goodies from brands I’m familiar with (and usually love) but every now and then I get to try something different. Which is the real treat. I’ve ended up trying some really great products that I probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise.

This time around I received some haircare goodies from Kerastase that I’m positive I would have walked right past if I spotted them out while shopping. My hair is pretty thick and curly so I tend to stick to the ethnic section of haircare aisles plus I prefer products that I can actually pronounce LOL. However, the Kerastase Vox Box has turned out to be a pretty good thing!
