Influenster Uni VoxBox 2014: First Impressions
As part of the Influenster community, I occasionally get sent some free products to test out and possibly review. A handful of the last few products I received weren't very interesting so I didn't bother to blog about them. But the latest Uni VoxBox definitely has a few products that I was excited to receive and try out!
Of course, being a makeup junkie, the two cosmetics products were most intriguing. One of the products is Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation which I got in shade 103 True Ivory. The shade is a little dark for me at the moment but that's perfect since I'll be able to test it out more towards the summer when I'm a bit tanner and oilier. I'm not a big fan of NYC makeup because I'd like to think I'm past the $1.99 lipstick stage (call me a makeup snob if you want, but I'm just being honest) but the shockingly bold pink color is nothing like anything else in my collection. The NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia is a blue toned hot pink that will be super fun to play with when it finally warms up in New York.
I'll be testing out the Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enhancer with my boyfriend this weekend since he likes iced teas. I'm generally not one to drink flavored water because I actually really enjoy drinking plain water as it's refreshing already. I'm not a fan of press on nails so the Broadway Nails imPRESS Manicure will get passed onto a younger cousin. The Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons will come in handy sooner or later and let me point out that I am impressed with such a generous full sized box. Lastly, there was a Pilot Acroball PureWhite Pen included in the box as well but it slipped out of the group picture. It's not the most exciting product but definitely something I can use everyday.
After falling out of love with Influenster for a few months, my interest has piqued again. While you're bound to get a lot of drugstore products and mass marketed brands, it's a free box and still worth signing up for. I often give products I won't use to friends so they can possibly enjoy something I don't (like a big pack of Sour Patch candies in the last box). Do you have an Influenster account? What product would you want to try from the Uni VoxBox?
