Happy Christmas and Solstice and any other holiday you celebrate this time of year! I'd like to first take a moment to provide an update to where I have been, and why there have been no updates on the blog since August.
At the very beginning of August, my fiance unfortunately was laid off. We've since been doing everything we can to keep all the bills in order, but that has meant I don't have the time I used to for blogging, or reviews in general, as my fiance was the primary provider for income. We're hoping to have that sorted soon, but as of now that just means I will only be able to review things every so often. I haven't forgotten about you guys!
To kick things off...
To kick the new year off early, I'll be reviewing not one, but TWO Influenster boxes! Today's box is the Covergirl Vox Box, which contains the brand new Plumpify Mascara by blastPRO as well as the Colorlicious Oh Sugar! lip blam.
I had Christmas photos to take today, so this came in at the perfect time. Before photo has no makeup, and the after photo has just these two products and a plain eye shadow.
Covergirl Plumpify Mascara
Covergirl Colorlicious Oh Sugar!
This one was new for me, it's a lip balm that's also scented and tinted. Somehow, Influenster got the shade so spot on, that this Caramel 3 colour is exactly my natural lip shade! When I put it on, not only did it immediately moisturize my chapped lips, it evened the tone of them. [Cold-sore battles as a kid left me with darkened patches in my lip area, but this completely hid those!]
The best part of this one for me, was it wasn't at all heavy like most balms are. After a while with other balms I end up feeling like my lips are warm, and heavy. Not so with this one! So light you could almost forget it was even there.
Here's the Christmas photo we took, with these products applied [to me, of course ;D]
With this blog, you can expect to see reviews, impressions, tips, inspirations, deals, and more. If there is something specific you would like to see, don't hesitate to let me know!
