influenster holiday voxbox '12

i'm sure some of you have heard of influenster, whether you have checked out the site yourself or have seen a few bloggers post about it. influenster is (from their about page):

"a free-to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products... Basically, Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly -- they just want to know what's up)."

it sounded pretty cool, so a couple months ago i signed up. i filled out the profile, and over the next couple weeks, i had some what forgotten about it. unfortunate but true :/ so i was pretty dang excited to see the holiday voxbox show up at my door right before the holidays!

here is a more detailed look at what i received:

1. goody quikstyle paddle brush - i was really excited to see this in my voxbox! i really like the idea of the microfibers in between the bristles soaking up water from my hair post shower. however, i don't think it really followed through at much as i had hoped. i didn't notice much of a difference when using it straight out of the shower. the microfibers did feel a little moist to the touch, so i'm sure it soaked up some water, but not enough to make a huge difference. i will still continue to use this brush though because i like detangling with a big paddle brush.

2. NYC new york liquid color lipshine in "nude york city" - i usually always lean towards bold lip colors, but this is a really pretty nude shade. i was afraid that it would be really sticky, since most of these kinds of lip glosses are, but it wasn't at all! it's perfect for work or pairing with a smokey eye.

3. kiss nail dress - i actually haven't tried these yet b/c i'm not a big fan of the pattern i received. i tend to keep my nail color pretty basic.

4. montagne jeunesse face mask in "crushed raspberry" - i just used this mask last night and i did like how my skin felt after rinsing it off. it wasn't overly drying, which is a concern for me during the winter. i would probably purchase this mask if it came in different packaging - these little packs are a bit of a pain, lol.

5. quaker real medleys cherry pistachio oatmeal + - these instant oatmeals are perfect to make at work in the morning, and i like that with this version i don't have to dirty a dish to make it. haha. the flavor was just ok... not bad but not outstanding. i do plan on trying the other flavors quaker offers :)

6. eboost in pink lemonade - i tried an eboost that i received in my first birchbox, so i knew i would like this one. the pink lemonade flavor is great.

* sole society coupon - i also received a coupon off my first pair of sole society shoes. not sure if i will actually use it, but i guess a girl can never have too many shoes ;)

pretty sweet, right? if this seems like something that you'd like to participate in, be sure to visit influenster and check them out! it's a pretty good deal.

hope you're all having a good week! it's my first full work week since before the holidays, yikes! but so far so good ;)

  1. That looks like fun! The lipgloss looks divine -- although I'm with ya on the bold color thing, I like my lipgloss light coral red! :)
