Influenster's New Design!

Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a good day so far! My night class got cancelled today so I can catch up on Ringer on Netflix! It's one of my favorite shows! Too bad there's only one season :(

Anywho, this post is mainly about a site I recently discovered called Influenster. I came across it after I saw many girls on YouTube getting these boxes filled with amazing stuff called Voxbox. I became intrigued and signed up in May of this year. You basically did surveys and answer questions on badges you wanted and they will email you if you qualified for a Voxbox. Sounds cool right?!

In September of this year, they recently revamped their entire site. I love the new things they added. For one, you can see where everything is and have no problems looking up badges. I also like how you now have to work harder to get a Voxbox. Before the revamp, it was fairly easily to get a Voxbox but I like how I have to work harder to get what I want. I've met lots of new people who share the same interests as me, which makes participating online is really fun!

Overall, I like the new site. I'm very active on it now and I hope to get a Voxbox in the near future! I encourage everyone to sign up! It's a lot of fun!

Mini Drugstore Haul!

Hey beauties! So I recently picked up some products at Rite-Aid and thought I'd show you a few things. Surprisingly, I only got one makeup item but Sephora's VIB 20% off sale is super tempting! Let's get on with the haul!

I believe this product is new since I found it in its own display. It's the Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser. I've been having a lot of breakouts lately on my chin and neck area and I have tried EVERYTHING! Nothing seems to work so I'm soooo glad I found this. I really hope this works out!

I believe this brand is fairly new too. It's the Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer. Wow, that's a mouthful! Anyway, I'm currently using the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture moisturizer and that thing sucks! It's the opposite of oil-free! I just wanted to try out a new moisturizer.

Next up is the Formula 10.0.6 Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask. I've never tried a mask before before and I was intrigued by it. Well, their packaging also intrigued me. I'm a sucker for packaging.

A hair product I got was the Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Binding Curl Defining Crème Gel. I just had to buy products with the longest names ever! Anyway, I've always wanted to try Nexxus products but they're so expensive. Good thing I found this for 75% off! I can't wait to use it!

I also got an Essie nail polish in the color Bahama Mama. This is ny first Essie nail polish and I hear soooo many people talking about this specific color! It's a darkened plum/maroon color that is perfect for fall! I CANNOT wait until I put this on my nails

Last but certainly not least, the only makeup product I bought was the Luscious Lips Glossy Lip Balm Collection. I love wearing lip balm and I have way too many but I was drawn towards this set. They look too cute to even use!

I can't wait to use all of these things, especially the nail polish and lip balms! Hope you're all having a great Saturday!

October Favorites 2012!

Hey all! So glad October is finally over! I had so many midterms and essays to do during that month. I did however found some standout products for this month! Let's get to it!

First, I would love to talk about Wet n Wild eyeshadows. If you have not tried these little suckers, you are not living in the beauty world! WnW eyeshadows are extremely pigmented and wear for a long time. Best part is, they are cheap! I'm talking $5 and under. I don't have a specific favorite trio or palette, I love them all! I definitely recommend them to everyone!

Next is a Wet n Wild blush in Heather Silk. This blush is perfect for fall! I love how it gives my cheeks a flushed look. It looks like the blush has a bit of sparkle in it by I swear it comes out matte on the cheeks. It's very pigmented and very affordable! Another great WnW item!

When it comes to eyebrows, I don't do much to them. But after recently watching MakeupByTiffanyD's eyebrow video, I became obsessed with filling in my eyebrows. I never noticed how it gives a significant new look on my face. She used the Revlon Brow Fantasy pencil and I love it! It comes with a pencil and a gel. My eyebrows look amazing just by using this product! It lasts for a long time and it does not smudge all over my face. A definite two thumbs up!

Another favorite this month would have to be my Wet n Wild Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner. It's the best liquid liner I've ever tried! I have used the L'Oreal Linear Intense and the Maybelline Line Stiletto ones and it just made cracks all over my lash line. Not a cute look. The WnW one lasts all day and doesn't smudge on me. Love it!

Since it's now fall, I love wearing dark red and berry lipsticks. My favorite one this month was Revlon Lip Bitter in Red Velvet. I love just how smooth they glide on your lips and how they are incredibly pigmented. Red Velvet is a dark reddish/burgundy color that is perfect for fall! I love it!

Last but certainly not least is the Rite-Aid Renewal brand makeup brushes, specifically the Kabuki brush. I love using this for applying powder on my face. It's really soft and picks up the product really good. I need to try out more brushes in the future.

What were your favorites for the month of October. Leave me a comment down below or tweet me! Until next time!
