Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox 2012

As always Influenster has done amazing job at putting together the Beauty Bloggers Vox Box 2012. It seemed like they were reading my mind. Three of the product featured in the VoxBox were products that was on my shopping list to purchase.
As Autumn descends, I always make my way to Bath and Body Works for the seasonal candles. Sometimes,I am a creature of habit, I usually always purchase the Leaves scent. Ifluenster has added a new fragrance to my fall candle to my r'hepertoire. The Nutmeg and Sage candle was intoxicating. That small candle carried a powerful punch. My entire house smelled divine so much so that I used the coupon that was included to purchase five of the three- wicked candles in Nutmeg and Sage. I wasn't totally greedy, I gave three of them as gifts and now my friends are hooked also. The next product that was on my list to purchase was the Goody's Simple Styles Spin Pins. I have a massive head of thick curly hair. Updos have always been a problem for me because it would take an entire package of bobby pins to hold my hair in place. It was never attractive you could see the pins and they started to hurt my scalp after a while. The trusted hair brand Goody's really out did themselves when they created the Simple Styles Spin Pin. It only takes four spin pins to hold my hair in an updo. You can't feel them. They lock in place and you don't have to worry about your hair falling out of your style. This was important to me because this seasons trend is the high bun. Now I am able to sport a beautiful updo. Before I can get to the point to put my hair up, it has to be tamed. I have a full head of thick curly, frizzy hair. Controlling it can be challenging. Thanks to Influenster I have a new holy grail curl defining hair cream. I have always had to use multiple products to control my locks. Now that I have been introduced to Not Your Mother's Kinky Moves Curl defining hair cream, I have one product that does everything that I need, with natural ingredients that nourishes my hair. It reduce the frizz and fly-aways also.
My day would never be complete without eye makeup and false lashes. The Kiss ever pro lashes starter kit is amazing. The Starter kit included a beautiful full set of lashes, an applicator and the eye lash adhesive. Though I consider my self a pro at lash application, I can appreciate the applicator because some many women won't even attempt to try to apply lashes themselves. The lashes lasted me five days of wear , I am always careful when removing them and making sure that the old adhesive is removed from the lash band. The adhesive I wasn't crazy about it because I did experience lifting in the corners of the lashes. That could just be with my eye shape, so the next time I wore the lashes I applied the lashes with the adhesive that I always use. The New York Color Individual Eyes in Dark Shadows though at first glance appeared very dark. After swatching , wasn't super pigmentmented. When applying the eyeshadows I did experience a great deal of fallout. So, if you should purchase this palette, apply your foundation last. I was able to build a fairly decent smokey eye with some work. If you are just starting to build your makeup collection this is a fairly decent product for the price point. It includes four eyeshadows , an eye primer and an illuminator. It is also travel friendly and you can do day and evening looks with this palette. Perfect for someone on the go. I am that person that is always on the go. My job is a night shift position. So I am always in search for something to give me a burst of energy. The eBoost was perfect for the energy that I need to get though my twelve hour shifts. I love that it is all natural ingredients. This products gives you energy without that jittery feeling. Tastes great with only five calories. I want to thank Influenster of allowing me to participate in reviewing these incredible products. And I want to give credit to the blogger who writes Beauty Love for borrowing her picture of the Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox 2012, my camera with my photos are missing in action. Stop by the Influenster at www.influenster.com. They have something to offer everyone.

Sleek Ultra Mattes i-Divine Eyeshadow Palettes in V1 Brights and V2 Darks

Sleek makeup is such an amazing brand. It is a drugstore makeup brand from the United Kingdom. As a big You-Tube junkie, I keep abreast of all of the latest and greatest that is being released from the brand all over the world. The newest release from the brand is the Sleek Ultra Mattes i-Divine eyeshadow palettes in V1 Brights and V2 Darks. As an older Makeup lover , my eyelids aren't as smooth as they were when I was in my twenties. I am in constant search for beautiful matte eyeshadows. Sleek has hit the jackpot with this collection. They are smooth and buttery. The colors are rich and vibrant. There is no fallout. I have never been one to be afraid of bright colors. Last weekend I wore the colors from the V1 Brights to work and I received so many compliments. People would stop me just to look at my eyes. I work in a somewhat conservative field that uniforms are worn. So I express myself through makeup. Yesterday, I wore my V2 Dark palette to do an amazing smokey eye. I was out to dinner with friends and the same thing happened people just stopped and asked me what eyeshadow that I was wearing and how sexy my eyes look. I am not Beyonce by any stretch of the imagination. So Sleek thank you for such amazing products. So if you would like to purchase their products the website is http://www.sleekmakeup.com/. I do know that the V1 Brights palette cannot be shipped to the US because of FDA approval. I found a wonderful Ebay seller myb-by-nk that was gracious enough to supply me with the V1 Bright palette. Sleek if you read this. PLEASE BRING SLEEK MAKEUP TO THE US!!!!!

Truvia® Natural Sweetener Taste Challenge

True to my Southern roots , I have drank sweet tea as a beverage of choice. Now that I am older, the calories from sugar is hazardous to my waistline and my health. So, when Influenster sent me the Love VoxBox, I was curious to take the Truvia Natural Sweetener taste challenge. I had suffered years of the pink, blue and yellow stuff, I want something that was natural and also tasted good.

To help me with my challenge I had my friend brew two cups of tea. One iced tea she made with sugar the other she made with Truvia Natural Sweetener. While she was doing this I worked in another part of the house. The time of truth was upon me, I tasted both beverages. Then I tasted them again, I couldn't tell the difference. The taste was spot on. So, I challenge you to take the Truvia Natural Sweetener Challenge. Send a comment to let me know what you think of Truvia Natural Sweetner!!!!
