What is influenster?
"Influenster is a free-to-join community of trendsetters, social media masterminds, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences.
The Influenster site is a hub where members meet to learn about new products from our favorite brands as well as review the products they already use in their day-to-day lives!
Influenster invites its most active members to participate in exclusive VoxBox programs where members receive complimentary products to test and review. In exchange, we ask our members to do what they already love to do: share their opinions with their friends & followers on social media!
But that's not all. We have a lot going on including digital challenges, twitter parties, & contests!"Which basically means that they send you free products try and to review & share with you friends. I honestly thought it was a cool thing to do when I was bored, you start off by unlocking expert badges and then unlocking other badges, you also write reviews on items you've purchased and liked, its really fun and great for when you're bored, I personally didn't expect to get a voxbox so soon because I had heard that it is hard to get on because they have limited supplies and so many users but I do believe its based on how active you are on the site, the more active you are, the better your chance of getting one.
Now I will tell you about the Vox Box I got which is called the #JollyVoxBox. It is their holiday Vox Box and inside it was the following;
I was super excited to get this and to start trying the products inside! So now I will tell you about the products I received, complimentary of influenster.com. The first item was the Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer I got it in the shade Aurora which is a pretty shade of red, at first glance I thought that I wouldn't like it, I've always admired girls that could pull of the red lips look but I personally was not one of them but I did try the lip lacquer on and I actually liked the outcome, Rimmel did a great job with this product, it went on smooth and it wasn't sticky. I love the way it looked on me and now I feel confident enough to wear red lipstick out. Plus the texture and wand makes it super easy to apply an even coat. I will include a photo of me wearing this product here
You can purchase this lip lacquer at any local CVS, Walgreens, Wal*Mart, K-Mart, etc. I can't remember the price but it was under $7 so it is also inexpensive which is a plus.
The next item was the NYC, New York City Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow, I absolutely loved the colors I got, Oh Soho Sweet, it was neutral shades of brown/creamy pink. I love these shades for an everyday look and I like that they have a sparkle to them. Also they are super affordable, they're only $2.99! Perfect for ladies on a budget! You can get them at your local CVS, Walgreens, Wal*Mart, K-Mart, & Rite-Aid.
Next on the list is the Ducklings Mini Rolls, I got the plaint splatter one, which is super cute. I looked on their facebook page and noticed that they have a lot of other cute designs, my favorite is the blue/purple leopard print, which I will be purchasing for future crafts. I love that they have a variety of designs and you can use them for lots of different things, I used mine to make a headband (I will add a picture below) and to tape packages to ship out. This duct tape really comes in handy, I saw other girls using it for duct tape wallets, bracelets, etc. I'm not sure the cost of this but you can purchase it at Wal*Mart and I noticed they have it at a nearby Family Dollar Store.
I also got a Pass the Puffs to Go Pack of Tissues which definitely came in handy since I was sick when I received my #JollyVoxBox. I carried these around with me in my bag when I went out on errands and I carried them around the house as I done house cleaning. They were really convenient to have in the bed with me instead of having a large tissue box beside me.
Finally the last thing I got was some Skinny Cow Candy, which I personally wasn't too into because I got peanut butter flavored candy, which I don't like. I did hand them out to my family to see how well they liked them and everyone loved them. My mother took most of them to carry to work with her because she always gets a sweet tooth at work and she says they are perfect, a nice flavor and not as many calories.
Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them? Do you have an influenster account? How well do you like the site?
