Influenster Voxbox Unboxing & Mini MAC/Sephora Haul

 

It’s Sunday, a day of relaxation and, perhaps, a little healthy indulgence around these parts (usually, anyway). And what’s more indulgent than a bit of a haul? I received an Influenster VoxBox in the mail and thought I’d share a little sneak peak, along with some small bits I’picked up at Sephora and MAC.

 

Influenster Voxbox Unboxing and Mini Sephora MAC Haul

Let’s start off with my Influenster #IDoVoxBox. If you don’t know what *Influenster is, it’s basically a platform through which its members can review and potentially receive free products to try. VoxBox campaigns are when members receive complimentary full-size products to test and review. Whether you get a box is supposedly determined by surveys you are invited to take as well as your social media impact score (how many followers you have across various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook etc). Anyone can sign up, making it very accessible. I never expected to receive a Vox Box to be quite honest and while I was quite surprised, I was also thrilled at the opportunity to try these products.

The #IDoVoxBox is a wedding themed box, as the name would suggest. According to Influenster, the products included are aimed at having “our brides, bridesmaids and guests looking and feeling beautiful for the big day!”. They included snacks, which I thought was brilliant. I’ve been in several weddings, i.e. as part of the bridal party, and trust me, eating becomes secondary to all of the other things you have to do – so easy to carry, energy packed munchies are a must!

What was in my box:

  • Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bar – Lemon Swirl
  • Indeed Nanoblur Primer
  • Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation
  • Covergirl Outlast Lipstick
  • Sahale Snacks Glazed Nuts Almonds with Cranberries Honey
  • Urgentrx Ache and Pain Relief to go Powder (Packet)

 

All in all, it’s a fantastic box. In particular, I was really happy to receive the Covergirl Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation which I’d actually been wanting to try and the Nanoblur Primer seems really promising.  More details to come soon.

At MAC, I couldn’t help but grab two of the Limited Edition Le Disko Dazzleshadows in Boom Boom Room and She Sparkles while my Sephora purchase was a little more practical. Having recently finished yet another Benefit Gimme Brow (I love that stuff), instead of repurchasing another, I decided to try something new: the Lash Food BrowFood Tinted Brow Enhancing Gelfix. I also scored a deluxe sample size promo of Too Faced’s new Born This Way Foundation.

    ooh lovely haul, especially those mac eyeshadows you picked up (i’m going to have to google swatches now, they looks so pretty and sparkley!)

      Thanks, Natasha. There should be tons of swatches out by now. Though I do have my own going up tomorrow. 🙂

    Hey Kimmy, yay little haul! I was eyeing the MAC eyeshadows as well, but ultimately I think it’s most probably going to produce fallout and I am most of the time too lazy to deal with it. Definitely intrigued by the Brow Food! Sometimes I wonder if I should use a growth serum on my brows so that they’d stop being so damn sparse!

    1. Kimmy

      Hehe. Thanks, Sunny. I’d heard about the fallout with these shadows prior to purchasing so I was prepared and there was some, but I still like ’em. I’ve been using the Brow Food for a few days now. Post will go up when I’ve completely formulated my thoughts – and yes, you know I feel you on the sparse brows.

      Post on the MAC shadows will be up tomorrow (Thursday) – I’m loving Boom Boom Room, though there is some fallout. 🙂

    That’s a lovely little box and haul, indeed! I’ve once again bought a lip pencil and lipstick combo in MAC (One day, I’ll be able to just walk past a MAC store!). I would have purchased more if the staff were abit more helpful but ohwell, atleast my bank account isn’t as damaged, right?

    1. Kimmy

      Hmm, I don’t know if I can say the same for myself (about being able to walk past a MAC store haha!). Yay for the bank account but bummer that they weren’t more helpful, what gives? That’s not nice! 🙂 xo

      I’m starting to test it out now so I should have the post up in a week or so. 🙂

      Thanks, sweetie. I’m looking forward to it too! I’ve only tried it twice so I’m going to give it a little while longer before I post a complete review. 🙂

    I think I need some of those Le Disko eyeshadows, they look stunning 🙂 x

      They are very pretty indeed. Unfortunately many of them out online but you may be able to find in store? xo
