I created this new blog just to get my thoughts out there into the world. This is just a mere vice for me to write away what I am thinking, feeling, reviewing and doing. I may not write here daily but will write in here when I feel like i just want to post to the world.

I was lucky enough to be chosen by Influenster to receive a Moda VoxBox. This box included quite a few items so here we go!
This lip liner is actually the first lip liner I’ve ever owned. It definitely makes a difference though. This product promises to define lips, moisturize lips, and prevent the lipstick you’re wearing from feathering. It definitely does all three. My lips always feel dry after wearing lipstick and after using this it definitely helps with that issue. Retail value: $5.99-6.49
Moisture Renew Lipstick - Red Alert (505)
Until recently I was not a lipstick person. I thought I was too pale to wear lipstick, let alone a red lipstick. This lipstick is red…like RED red. Its a great color, very radiant. Just like the lip liner this product promises to moisturize. It really works. I haven’t worn it for an extended period, so I can’t speak for how long it lasts but I’ll update when I do. Retail Value: $6.99-7.49
Scandaleyes Rockin’ Curves Mascara - Extreme Black (003)
Last of the 3 Rimmel products. I am OBSESSED with mascara. I swear I have at least 6 tubes of it at any one time. I’ve been meaning to get this mascara so imagine my surprise when I got some in the mail. I love this mascara. The weird, as they call it, “Broken heart shaped” applicator helps get into all the edges of your lashes. It adds tons of volume and doesn’t clump. Retail Value: $5.49-5.99
Honestly, there’s not much to say about this product. It’s Puffs! I love the brand. They’ve made it better by making the packaging a little more forgiving. Now you don’t have to worry about crushed boxes. They can be thrown around and beaten and they won’t look like they belong in the trash. Retail Value: 1pk $1.99-2.49 / 3pk 4.99-5.99
Hair Food Moisture Hair Mask
THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. I have really oily hair so I hardly ever use conditioner, which I know it needs since I use a hair dryer and straightener fairly often on my hair. So, when I got a hair mask I was a bit tentative. I thought it would make my hair greasier than normal. I used it today and I LOVE it. My hair is so soft. I even went out of my way to use my straightener today to test it out. My hair isn’t frizzy at all and it is so shiny and smooth. Retail Value: $14.99
Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa
This stuff is great. It only has 5 ingredients in it, which is something I can really get behind. I received one packet to try. I wish I would’ve gotten more.This product requires the use of milk to make it rather than water. I’ve been trying to eat healthier so I tried to make it with my almond milk…big mistake, it doesn’t heat up well. Luckily, they also sent along a 40 cent off coupon for a new box of it, so I will be using that! Retail Value: $2.29
Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer
I’m a firm believer in Jergens. I’ve always loved their products. This one is no different. Between daily showers, living somewhere where the wind is harsh and cold, and working in retail where I am constantly using hand sanitizer and handling money my hands are extremely dry. I definitely know the rest of my body needs the moisture to and it’s working for me. Retail Value: $5.99-6.99
Resource Spring Water
Let me tell you about this water. It is naturally sourced and the water is fantastic. The bottle is 50% recycled plastic and 100% recyclable. It tastes great and has electrolytes in it, which is an added bonus. Retail Value: $1.49
Everything I have received was complimentary. I received it for the sol purposed of reviewing.
