Bella VoxBox

The good, the bad and the tasty. This is what came inside my Bella VoxBox and my thoughts…

 

EcoTools Complexion Collection Mattifying Finish Brush

DOVE Fruit:

I got the blueberries and loved them so much that I purchased the cherry and pomegranate. I was lucky enough to have a cartwheel for them at Target and received 10% off my tasty treats! While all 3 were good, I preferred the cherry and blueberry the most. They are great added to just about everything. Try them with your yogurt and cereal for a healthy and chocolaty addition.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara created by Kate Moss:

After opening I was a bit intimidated by the curved wand but found it wasn’t to difficult to use after a moment of complete concentration. The black was very bold which I liked. You didn’t have to use much in order to have dark lashed! So I was pleased with the mascara after application but… several hours later I noticed that the mascara had already smeared under my eyes leaving my looking very tired. It wiped off pretty easily with a tissue but I was paranoid the rest of the evening that I had dark circles from the mascara. I might give it another try in the fall when the humidity isn’t so high but it will not be in my summer bag. **NOT Waterproof**

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate:

Very creamy and smooth with great color. BUT it comes off on everything that your lips touch. The only time I would even attempt to wear this would be a party where no food or drink was being offered.

Not Your Mother’s Deja Vu Do Style Extender:

Honestly I wasn’t sure that this would do much for my hair. But OMG is it a god send. With my new hair style it actually has to be done. Like who knew?! I most definitely do not have the time or patience to do my hair every single day… After every wash I use the Deja Vo Do style extender before brushing and letting my hair dry. With that alone it keeps the crazy waves/curls from poofing out my hair. Once dry you run a straight iron over it and you’re good to go for that day AND the next! This is actually a product that I will continue to purchase and would like to try the other items from that line.

Club W:

I have not actually used the code for the FREE bottle of wine with purchase of two additional bottles. As soon as I have some extra cash I will get those 3 bottles. There is a real good selection of wine on the website and it has a cool taste preference test to help you find wines that will fit with you pallet.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs:

This was the wrong color for my skin tone… about 2-3 shades darker. So I did not try this product.

 

I do love getting to try new things from Influenster, sometimes there are just not the right fit. But that is okay, you won’t know until you try something new! So head on over to Influenster and start getting your free trials now! All you have to do is provide and honest review.

Rimmel London Proctuct Review

Okay so today I am reviewing 2 Rimmel London products that I received complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover & Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner. I really enjoyed testing both of these products. The only difficult part was deciding when to try them out because I don’t usually wear makeup. I always feel like it looks funny on me… but the first attempt was on Christmas Eve and it went well but I needed another go at it and here are the results.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner

20150126_141718 20150126_141937 20150126_142217                                               No Makeup.       Eyeliner.             Eyeliner & Mascara.

I was super happy that the liner went on smooth and even. I think this definitely helps apply a straighter line and helps with the confidence of putting it on. I would still be careful because it does NOT want to come off for any mistakes! Like at all. It does smudge a bit when you first put it on.. remember this for the smokey eye. The color is bright and bold. I’m glad it came to me in black because I’m not sure I would have been brave enough to wear another color but now I’m very interested in how bright and beautify the other colors will look after application. (10 colors available) If the color is a bit too much you can tone it down with some neutral eye shadow. That’s what I did for Christmas Eve and it turned out lovely. Check it out here!

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

20150126_142457 20150126_142647 20150126_142830                                            Remover with 3 pads. Result.     After my remover & face wash.

Alright, now to the other half of this equation. With eye makeup you must have a good and trusted makeup remover to use before bed, especially if you’re like me and have sensitive eyes and/or wear contacts. I do love that this remover is made for people with sensitive eyes and contact wears. It was made for me! How can I not be excited?? I used three pads for one eye, that seems like it would do the trick completely. While it did take off the mascara and most of the eyeliner it just did not have the results I wanted. Even if I am going to bed I don’t want to look like a raccoon! So I went to my trusted eye make up remover that never fails me and I was still in shock because I was still a raccoon… On to washing my entire face, sometimes that does the trick but no. I am impressed with the makeup remover because it worked and didn’t irritate my eyes at all. I don’t blame the remover for leaving me a raccoon, I blame the eyeliner. It was not meant to come off and holds too it!

Celestial Seasonings Review

Product Review for Celestial Seasoning Candy Cane Lane Tea

ad47d30bb5e72dfb59c521b5756a903a

First Impressions: Color is good. Smell is amazing!

Taste Test: The tea was bland but had a small mint finish.

Bonus: Decaffeinated. This is a huge plus because I do not drink caffeine!

Over all I was disappointed. I was hoping to have found a new tea because I love mint but the tea did not taste like a candy cane. To be fair I am not a fan of green tea. Someone who loves green tea will absolutely love Candy Cane Lane. And I will still purchase Celestial Seasons teas, I love the Chamomile! I’m excited to buy the Honey Vanilla Chamomile next time I’m at the store.
