My Spring Fling VoxBox!!!

Okay guys! Here it is! I'm so excited to tell you about the amazing products that I got in the recent Spring Fling VoxBox from Influenster for testing purposes.

First I want to start you off with a video so that you can get an idea of how it came and what was inside.

Now that you have got the idea of the who, what, when, where, why, and how, I just want to give you the full scoop on each product.

Let's start off with the Kiss Everlasting French Manicure. You can find this awesome kit at your local Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, Kmart, Rite-Aid, and Target. They generally cost about $6.49 but I have seen them on sell for under $5!!! Can you imagine a natural looking manicure that costs less that $5? That blew my mind. They look and feel so natural on you that people will be asking you how you grew your nails so beautifully. I had several people comment on mine. They are easy to apply and last for a decent amount of time. The glue doesn't do any damage to your original nail and the artificial nail does not chip. I would seriously recommend these to any girl who doesn't want her nails ruined by going to get a french tip manicure done.

Next we will go into Rimmel London's Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara. You can find this at any big box store or pharmacy as well. It will cost you approximately $5.99 but it is well worth it. The applicator is sloped inward so that it makes perfect application of the mascara. It stays on for quite a while and doesn't seem to run when sweating or crying. The Retro look has come back in and this mascara surely helps to achieve that 60's vibe. Throw on some Rimmel London red lipstick and Austen Powers may be headed your way, yeah, baby, yeah!! I personally use this mascara in my everyday regimen. I think it is my new favorite go to.

While in the process of beautifying yourself, try the NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion. I love this stuff. It isn't highly oily or perfumey while it does hydrate and firm your skin within two weeks. You can also find this product where the other two products are sold at about $2.49/2.5 oz or $10.99/13.5 oz. Nivea lotions have always been a great product to me. As you can tell in the video above. If you would like to try a sample, here is a link for you.

Another product every Spring girl should try is Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons. Just like the other products, you will find this product at a pharmacy or big box store. It will cost you about $3.99-$4.99. These have 360 degree protection that promises leak and odor protection. These are specifically for girls who are very active but I have to admit that the leak protection is great for all women. I actually like the protection. If you want a coupon for the tampons, here is a link for you!

After getting all glammed up with the other products, consider throwing a Labor Day Movie party with your favorite girls. It is now on Blue, DVD &Digital HD for $19.99. I won't spoil the details for those who haven't watched it but I will say that it is a touching love story that has a great meaning behind it... oh and let's not forget the peach pie!!

I seriously hope you all go out and try each of the products and experience them for yourself. They are all amazing products and deserve a try. Thanks, Influenster, for a chance to try each of the products.

Kiss everlasting French Manicure

I got my first VoxBox from Influenster recently. For those of you who do not know about Influenster or about their amazing VoxBox's, let me explain. You go to Influenster.com and answer surveys. These surveys qualify you for VoxBoxes. The VoxBoxes have products inside that you get to try for free and review. I will definitely be doing a review on all the products in the amazing box but first I would like to pick out one in particular.

Inside the box was a set of Kiss Everlasting French Manicure Nails that I can only describe as nothing more than AHHMAZING! I'm not a fan of artificial nails because I have had bad experiences in the past but Kiss Everlasting French Manicures have absolutely changed my mind.

In the past I have had manicures that absolutely have destroyed my original nails or have looked so unnatural that I would take them off after a few hours. My original nails are normally long and I just shape them and clear coat them but Kiss changed that. Kiss Everlasting French Manicure was not only natural looking but it did not damage my original nail. This was pleasantly surprising to me.

The package comes with everything you need to give yourself an amazing manicure. There are 12 different sizes of nails within the pack so that it makes fitting your original nail a piece of cake. The artificial nail comes with a tab on it so that you can also place it yourself with no help from others. They include an emery board in case you need to do and sanding or shaping but I can guarantee that you won't need it as much as  you would think. The tabs break off almost even with the end of the nail. They also add the glue needed to adhere the artificial nail to your original nail. Kiss absolutely thought of everything when they packaged this product. 

I hadn't applied artificial nails for over 10 years. This set made it very easy for those who were out of practice or had never applied artificial nails. You simply add the glue generously to your nail and to the artificial nail. Then you align the artificial nail with your cuticle and press down. You add a slight amount of firm pressure for a second and then the nail is set. All you have to do is break off the tab and sand if needed.

All in all, I think I am in love with this product. I never really thought I would actually find a brand of artificial nails that I like but these proved me wrong. Now I will know what I will be buying for all my fancy occasions. One tip I will give is to make sure you add enough glue. I made the rookie mistake of not putting enough on the first nail I applied and an air bubble shown slightly underneath the nail.

Seriously guys, go try these nails! I can't rant enough on how much you will love these! They have them in other styles and even French pedicures for those who like their little piggies looking fabulous!
