#juneglambag first impressions

image

The #juneglambag from ipsy is here. I’m excited for the smash box primer, I like it and I’m getting low on what I already have. Score.

The bag feels cheap though, I’m having a flashback to a book bag I had in 1992 made of the same material. And the eye pencil doesn’t have a cap …. ?

The lotion smells great. You can never have too much vanilla lotion. 🙂 it has a beachy smell to it too. Mmmm.

And of course the kittens wanted to check out the goodies

Sorry, that is not for you!

#bellavoxbox reviews. Yay, or nay?

The time has come … I received a bunch of great products from Influenster for product testing and review. Here is my BellaVoxBox reviews, and overall products yay or nay.

111

Look at all those goodies. So we have: Sally Hansen Airbush Legs, Eco Tools complexion collection mattifying finish brush, Club W free sample, Not Your Mother’s Deja Vu Do style extender, Rimmell London Scandaleyes and Rimmell by Kate lipstick, and Dove with Real fruit.

Yay!: pretty much everything.

I love the Eco Tools Brush–it’s really soft and pretty  , and the Rimmell London Mascara and Lipstick, while bold were a nice bold move for me. I never thought I could pull off RED lipstick like that. The Dove with Real Fruit is super yummy, and is a fair price for what it is. The Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, works very well and would be great for any glow-in-the-dark girl like myself.

Nay:

I’m still on the fence about Club W, it’s a nice idea, but I haven’t received a wine that I have been wowwed by so maybe the taste profile quiz doesn’t work the best, and $13/bottle adds up fast. And the NYM deja vu do style extender–works great, but I don’t like the smell, so I will pass on any future purchases of that unless there are other scents.

I received the not your mother’s deja vu do style extender free for testing from influenster. Thanks influenster and NYM brands.

Ah, springtime and early summer in Michigan. The humidity is an all time high, and the frizzy hair wants to come out and play. I’ve been wrestling with my hair for the last few months trying to find a product routine that will tame the dreaded frizz and wacky things my hair will do if left to its own devices. I was excited to get the NYM deja vu do style extender because it’s a good brand, and my frizz was going nuts.

As seen in the picture above, there is yours truly. I clarified and conditioned my hair this morning, and ran a fair amount of the NYM deja vu do through my hair and let it dry naturally. I have the day off, so there’s no need to bust out the blow dryer or curling iron. After some brushing, and letting it dry all the way, this was the end result.

Pros: it works, you can find it at stores like Target, can’t be too expensive.

Cons: I don’t like the smell, it smells very floral like roses.

#spring4wine with Club W

I recevied a free bottle of wine from Club W and Influenster for testing purposes. I am an adult, of legal age, and work with the general public … needless to say the bottle of wine was very much appreciated. Thank you.

Okay, why should you #spring4wine with Club W?

  • For one:  they deliver the wine to your door, and the shipping is really fast. I got an email notification that my box-o-wine had shipped, and got it that afternoon. If only every web-delivery service was that fast …
  • For two: they have a wide assortment available on their website, and you can use the taste profile questionnaire to find a good match for you.
  • For three: there’s a promo code you can use right now to get a free bottle:  REFERME …
  • For four: There’s some hidden gems you won’t find at the market or liquor store.
  • For five: Oh yeah, they send you recipe ideas, so you can enjoy a wine pairing with food … Or you can just skip the food and go for the wine.

I haven’t found a wine that I like yet through Club W, I like dessert wines and really sweet reds and whites … and while I can enjoy some dryness to my wine, my husband is pickier than I am, and won’t partake. I also wasn’t aware that when I purchased the two other bottles in addition to my free bottle, that I was signing up for a monthly subscription. The prices on the wine aren’t too bad, and I’ve adjusted my taste profile, so here’s hoping I get a new favorite soon from Club W.

Enjoy some free wine–the promo code should work!

Finally got around to trying the #perfectairbruchlegs from #sallyhansen. Thanks to influenster for the free sample! This obviously works, see the top image for with and without . And it’s really easy to use, just put it on like lotion.
