#DLVoxBox // First Impressions


I made the Dean's List from Influenster and I have a received a free voxbox full of goodies to review. This is only my second time but I think the program is really neat. Especially since they launched their new site that gives a much more accurate account of what you social media reach is. The higher your reach, the better chance you have of getting a box. Yet, the downside is you only have so many days to post your review in. Since I have family coming I wanted to get this up as soon as possible. I have decided to split this into two posts, first impressions and an update. Today you are getting the first impression, included with a video!



1. Softlips Cub: $3.49
I loved the shape! So cute and different. I also love that the top is clear so you can see exactly how much you have left. The flavor I have is blueberry-pomegranate, perfect for me. The only so far "bad" is that smell is a tiny strong so I was coughing a little more when wearing. I think this is so worth the prices and the coughing. I will be using this alot.

2. Airhead Bites: $0.87-$1.29
"Any candy is a welcome sign to a college student" Which is very true. I loved getting these little bites of sweet. They have just the perfect flavors for sharing so that everyone will have one they like. My favorite is the Lemon and least favorite is the Blue Raspberry (never a fan of this). Now I know what to buy if I need a serious sugar rush.

3. KISS Looks so Natural Lashes: $3.99
If you didn't watch the video, then you will know that I don't think I'll wear these. My lashes are just as long so it would only add volume to mine. Plus, I am a girl who believes in being natural. I think that these will be giveaway as a Random Act of Kindness (keep an eye out-no pun intended).

4. Playtex Sport Fresh Balance: $3.99
Another product I will not be able to use. I think that it's neat but the smell is what concerns me. They are scent, kinda alot,as in had-to-be-removed-from-room-alot.  These will also be giveaway as a RAK. Sorry, I just can't do scent or things down in my womanhood.

5. Pilot FriXion Clicker: $5.75 for a 2-pack
Pilot is my favorite maker of pens, period. I love how tiny I can write with them. Great for bibles. Yet, these are even better because they are erasable and gel penned! I already have been loving using them. They don't erase that well but how I use them, it works. I'll will have a more detailed post about these guys to come.

6. CoverGirl Ready, Set Gorgeous Liquid Foundation: $6.99+
As I stated above, I am a more natural girl. Yet, I do have days where I wish I could hide my face. I usually turn to a BB cream for help (these are usually days when I need to do a video/post and my face doesn't like me. We all have those right?) This is a product I will be using to truly see how I like it. I was surprised how well the color matched me based off an online survey. I put it on that day and was surprised to see how light it felt on me. Only set back, my face isn't to sure about it. I broke out a little more then usual the day after. Expect a full and more detailed review of this to come.


7. SinfulColors No Text Red: $1.99
I loved this color right out the box. At first I thought the "No text red" meant no red in your papers cause your smokin' at college. Pretty cute, right? However, it's much more meaningful then that.  SinfulColors is advocating No Texting And Driving with this polish. The idea is that you paint your thumb red to remind yourself not to text and drive. How awesome! (not that anyone should need a reminder). I thought it was pretty cool so I did happen to do my nails. First impressions: went on smooth, no second needed but took a little longer to dry then my other polish. Over all I am thrilled to have this nail polish in my collection. Expect a full and more detailed review to come.

-------------
There is my first impressions to all the wonderful products that Influenster sent to me for review. As stated many times, I will be posting an updated version of this post/product in November. Also make sure to check out my Instagram to see how I am using these items everyday. 
**I have received this book for free in exchange for my review/opinions, which are solely mine and not swayed in anyway**

Cool little box! I can't stand perfume-y hygiene products myself, and I'm not a fan of make-up or anything, so it might not be a box for me, but I know of a lot of people who would love getting this!

Influenster is so fun. I cannot believe that I was picked as a tester for the Kuerig 2.0 coffee machine a month ago. I'm still rather excited!

It's hard to find a good red in nail polish! So, I am looking forward to hearing what you thought. And, you might be surprised on using the lashes. They can be great for a party, you still look natural, but more flirty at the same time!
