Spring Fever VoxBox from Influenster

I just received my first ever VoxBox from Influenster. I was so stoked that I qualified for this box! Influenster is a free-to-join online community where you can participate in “tasks” and give opinions of products and experiences. More info here. The best part of it all is that I got all of these products FREE to try and review.

So, what’s in the box?

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure:

I can’t wait to try these! I’ve been curious about how well they work. I’ll probably wait (13 days) until school is out for Summer because I don’t think these would last very long while I’m teaching Kindergarten! I will definitely do a post about these soon!

Such a cute print!

NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm:

This smells pretty good but I didn’t really care for the color that it left on my lips. It is a little too red for me. I might like it better in another color.

I love lip products!

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Dust It Mattifying Powder:

I am super excited to try this. I have only tried one other hair powder and it actually gave my hair some volume. I will probably do a post about this in the near future.

Excited to try this!

Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant:

I’ve used this deodorant before and it works pretty well but I am not really a fan of gel deodorants.

I love the fresh scent!

Mani Monday: Julep Annie and Jane

I used a 50% off coupon to order these from the Julep website a few weeks ago. Annie is from the Trina Turk Fall ’12 collection and it is described as an electric blue topaz crème. This polish has the best formula of all of the Julep polishes that I have used so far. It was easy to apply and I probably could have gotten away with just one coat but I ended up using two. Jane is a full-coverage rose gold multi-dimensional glitter. It was a little chunky but in my experience most glitters are. My boyfriend doesn’t like the combination of these two colors but I think it is fun and I really wanted to try both of them.

Special K Nail Mail

What’s better than nail mail? Free nail mail!!!

A couple of weeks ago I was at Target and I noticed that the Special K that I was buying said that you could get a free Nicole by OPI nail polish by using codes from specially marked boxes. For 3 codes you can get the red polish that I got and for 8 codes you can get all three of the special colors (red, pink, and blue).

This color is called Challenge Red-Y,  it is a very pretty classic red.
