Charm Vox Box from Influenster

I am so devoted to Influenster for so many reasons.
Mainly because it's the first company that believed in me. I love reviewing the products they send me every month from L'Oreal Paris. But, I also love surprises and I was so excited to receive this Spring inspired goodie box.
I was one of several influensters who received the Charm Vox Box. This box is for mom's only, as it is filled with surprises for my little ones as well.
Included in the Charm Vox Box is:

  • Clean it up Shampoo by Eva NYC
  • Therapy Session Hair Mask by Eva NYC
  • Peeps Delights(coconut&dark chocolate)
  • McCormick Organic Taco Seasoning
  • Mott's Applesauce
  • 1 step Wonder Gel nail polish by Wet n Wild in the color Peri-wink-le of an eye
  • 2 samples of Vera Wang Embrace perfumes, Periwinkle & Iris and Green Tea & Pear Blossom
I honestly had to giggle upon going through these products because wow, what a random assortment?
I had to ask myself, how am I going to review taco Seasoning and nail polish? After all, I am a beauty influencer not a food critic. So here are my thoughts on the products, beauty first(of course).

Clean it up Shampoo and Therapy Session Hair Mask by Eva NYC:
I had heard of this brand through last years Beauty Con but had never tried them. I was a little disappointed that Influenster only sent sample sized products of these. I have super thick and long hair so I used both of them the first time.
As for the shampoo, it smells great and did it's job as a shampoo. It's supposed to nourish and revitalize hair plus strengthen it with it's Keravis Protein complex. I really didn't notice any change. Maybe if they had of sent more product for more uses I could've been able to tell a difference.
The hair mask promised the same as the shampoo. It had a very lovely smell as well. But since they sent so little product I still remain neutral because I didn't notice any difference in my hair.
I would have to give the Shampoo and Hair Mask a 3 out of 5 star rating.

Peeps Delights in Coconut and Dark Chocolate:
I really really dislike peeps. I'm not sure if it's the texture or what, but I've never liked these cute little marshmallows. I also hate coconut, but I do love dark chocolate so I thought I would give it a go.
The overwhelming coconut flavor with sugary marshmallow is not a good combination. So I gave one each to my sons to try and they spit them out.
To the Peeps makers, this was just a bad idea.
I would give this product 1 out of 5 stars.

McCormick Organic Taco Seasoning:
Taco Tuesday, anyone? Actually I made taco soup with this and as usual, it was delish.
Let me know if you want the recipe!
I would have to give this 5 out of 5 stars.

Mott's Applesauce:
I actually buy these applesauce to go packets for the kids all the time just in another brand. But my youngest eat it in about 30 seconds.
So Jameson gives this 5 out of 5 stars.

Vera Wang Embrace Perfumes:
Periwinkle&Iris: Very fresh, clean and appropriate for March. A great mix of floral and sweets. I spritzed it on and loved it. I would actually recommend this for a great mother's day gift.
I would give this 5 out of 5 stars.
Green Tea& Pear Blossom: Another mix of floral with an earthy vibe. This honestly smelled like a candle wax warmer that I have so I couldn't bring myself to wear it as a perfume.
So I would have to give this 2 out of 5 stars.

1step Wonder Gel nailpolish by Wet n Wild:
Never in a million years would I choose this color of blue for my nails. I am a neutral girl all the way when it comes to nails. Blacks, greys, whites, nudes and a few pinks, is what my nail collection consists of. I was curious of the product so I thought i'd try something new and give it a try.
It did stay longer than regular nail polish, I noticed it started chipping off after 4 days of wear. It stays super glossy/shiny throughout so I was very impressed by that itself. I would love to try this product again, just in a shade that's more me.
I would have to give this polish 5 out of 5 stars.

So this is my take on this months box from Influenster. I love working with influenster and being a beauty influencer! They have been so good to me. If you are interested in becoming a product tester and reviewer, sign up through me on and be entered in a contest to win next month's voxbox!

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
