Unboxing the Jolly VoxBox

I love those little packages that come in the mail that are filled with fun new things to try. Two of my favorites are the boxes I get from BirchBox (monthly) and Influenster (periodically). They always include stuff I've been meaning to try, but for one reason or another haven't purchased yet. On that note, let's take a peak inside this month's Jolly VoxBox.

Unboxing the Jolly VoxBox
First off, these Skinny Cow Peanut Butter Creme chocolates lasted about ten minutes. I was at least  able to snag one of them. They were indeed divine. Huge thumbs up from all of us at the Nest.

Next, I tried the NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow. This set of shades is very similar to my everyday eye-shadow palette, so I was excited to give them a shot. The shadows blend well with a brush (the one thing I did not like was the applicator; it was impossible to handle, which really wasn't a huge deal because I tend to use a brush anyway).

While I was on the makeup kick, I tried the Rimmel London NEW Show Off Lip Lacquer. The product does provide both the color of lipstick and the sheen of a lacquer.

I did find that it feathered some as it wore, and the shade is indeed a show-offy one, a lot brighter than what I would normally wear (it does come in 14 different shades, so I think I'll check out some of the others). Overall, however, it did make me feel very Marilyn Monroeish (it also wasn't drying, and it lasted a good while, even after some coffee and water). Here's my finished, glammish face;).

I'm also wearing the Pond's Luminous Finish BB+ Creme that I received in an earlier VoxBox. I just love the stuff!
I also received a cute little pack of Puffs Plus tissues (which I always seem to need and never have in my purse - now I will!) and a Ducklings Mini Roll, which they say is "excellent for repair, crafting, and imaginative projects." I have no idea what I might use it for just yet, but I will figure something out!

If you are interested in becoming an Influenster yourself (testing out and sharing new products), check out their website ( Tomorrow is going to be an epic crafting/DIY day in our house! I can't wait to share the projects with you later this week:)!! Also, stop by tomorrow for our favorite posts of 2013. Much love, A/J

*** I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.
