INFLUENSTER NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Palette

I was so excited that my Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox included an eye palette from NYC New York Color to test out! Now, the palette retails for $4.99 and that made me a little wary because I haven't had the best experiences with inexpensive eye shadows in the past. But I did have a great time testing out NYC's lip gloss when Influenster sent me the Latina VoxBox a couple of months back, so I was hopeful that NYC would continue to be a pleasant surprise.

The palette comes with four pressed eyeshadows, a cream primer, and a cream highlighter. There is one double sided sponge-tip applicator included as well.
All in all, for $4.99, this palette would be tough to beat. Definitely a worthwhile purchase, and like NYC's lipglosses, I will be heading to my drugstore to check out the other color varieties they have available.

Final Assessment:

Is the product worth purchasing? YES

More information on the product is available on NYC New York Color's website.

All of the beauty items are perfectly able to travel nicely too, they’re under your size limit!  Woot, Beauty Bloggers Voxbox testing time!

No. 7 Boots ! Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox


The cleanser and night cream are pretty inexpensive and can be found at your local Target or online. The cleanser is rich and creamy and didn’t irritate my dry and sensitive skin. The night cream also didn’t irritate my skin and really soaked into my skin which I need since my face is always so parched! I didn’t notice any breakouts after using either product and the smell was subtle, yet pleasant.


The only con I can think of is that I wish I had received bigger sample sizes!! I am going through it so quickly that I will have to go out and stock up. At these prices ($9 for the cleanser, $14 for the night cream, respectively), I can afford to.

Influenster Beauty Blogger VoxBox - BBW CIDER LANE CANDLE!

Bath & Body Works - Cider Lane Candle!

 I received this lovely Bath Body Works mini candle in the fragrance Cider Lane in my Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox. I'm a big fan of anything Bath and Body Works to begin with so I was super excited to recieve this lovely product! Their candles are actually better than Yankee and i love how every season they come out with different candle scents! I was really happy to get the mini candle and the fragrance is oh so yummy! I could smell it first thing when I opened my box. I love fall fragrances in candles and this is a wonderful fragrance. 

Also included in the box was a coupon for Bath and Body Works 3-wick candles for $10! :) You could purchase 5 with the coupon! I picked them up in different scents and I actually gave them to my friends and family to try :) Oh I love the fragrances in our home!

Bath and Body Works candle was complimentary to test through Influesnter's Beauty Bloggers VoxBox! Thank you!!
