This is the second color of lipstick from my complimentary VoxBox by Becca Cosmetics! It’s called Cherry and it’s THE PERFECT RED! It has a blue base so it makes your teeth look really white! It also contains hyaluronic acid so it leaves your lips super moisturized! Thank you @influenster ♥️♥️♥️

I’m getting my first vox box #voxbox and I’ve been on here for a week www.influenster.com/r/5631253 so excited!!!!! #photooftheday
BRAID OUT DETAILS💁🏽♀️
(Check out my story for the before)
So all my friends know I’m the worst natural when it comes to styling. My routine legit consists of a wash and go every 2 days. I’m a disgrace yall🤦🏽♀️ but thanks to @influenster and @garnierusa I found the PERFECT products in my #complimentary#curltreats#voxbox for an easy, well defined braid out.
After washing & conditioning I parted my hair down the center and applied the Garnier curl treats hydrating butter and Garnier curl treats jelly before braiding my hair up into 2 French braids. I wore the braid style all day yesterday and slept in it before taking them out this morning with just a little coconut oil serum to unravel and tada✨ no frizz, no crunch just defined well moisturized curls with VOLUME!! These products are amazing and def 2 of my new staples. #contest
I just got notified that my first Influenster VoxBox is on its way! Nothing too fancy, but happy to start somewhere. Always willing to try new and **free** things. #influenster#influenstervoxbox#voxbox
You guys!!!!! I am living for this latest #VOXBOX that I received from @influenster and @lancomeofficial@sephora !
The skincare has already made such a difference in my pore size, texture and brightness! And the translucent powder is so silky! I’m even impressed with the setting spray (which says a lot as I’m still a UD All Nighter Setting Spray fiend! Haha)
Who else has tried these products? What do you think of them?

▪Mom Truth : tried & tested▪
I am so the type to find things that I like and then stay loyal and true for years upon years, just because it's the safe thing to do when it comes to make up for me. Typically, I consider myself adventurous, but this is an area I implement a 'proceed with caution' attitude. ▪▪▪▪▪
That all being said, I was fortunate to receive a #longwearfoundation and primer by #lauramercier complimentarily thanks to @influenster and my skin and I are pretty dang pleased. The shade is a great match to the product I was using and as I wind down the day, roughly 10 hours post application, my skin stills feels glowy yet also powder fresh. For this busy #boymom to three, I'm all about most anything that saves me time and still keeps me feeling girly. This #voxbox did not disappoint! What's your one beauty product you can't live without? Perhaps this an adventure to be continued...

Silly bathroom selfies to celebrate my first ever @influenster#VoxBox!! I received a complimentary bottle of Clairol Root Touch-Up to test out.
I haven’t used at home color in 7+ years, and I haven’t had salon color in almost 3. Over that time span I’ve grown my fair share of grays, but I just try to embrace it.
All that said - I wouldn’t buy this product on my own, but it serves its purpose for those who do like to color their hair/cover grays. I let it sit on my hair for just a few minutes so that the color wouldn’t be super saturated and I think it worked well (where I actually made sure the color was on my grays 🤦🏼♀️) Easy-peasy to use and no mess at all. #ColorConfidently#contest#complimentary@ClairolColor@Influenster

👉🏾 SWIPE ALERT
My skin has always been problematic and I’m always looking for great skincare products. I don’t wear a lot of makeup because I break out so easily and when I do wear makeup it’s a very simple look of moisturizer, foundation, and powder. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
I received the @bareminerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Spot concealer from @influenster in my free #voxbox to test. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
✨ Full coverage concealer for acne prone skin
✨ Contains ingredients like zinc, salicylic acid, kaolin clay, and licorice root extract to help reduce blemishes, mattify skin, purify pores, and fade acne scars. .
✨Sweat-resistant, and smudge, water, and transfer proof. .
MY THOUGHTS .
✨ The medium dark shade blends into my skin very well. The product is a bit thick and a little cakey so it does transfer and smudge once wet. It goes very well underneath my foundation and setting powder and sometimes I wear it alone with moisturizer. It does have a matte effect but if you are into a really sleek look, you will need something else. This product is perfect for low key makeup looks. I still need foundation for my dark marks. I’m also not sure this can really reduce the appearance of a raised pimple. Overall I like this product and since it’s $22, I’d have to use my @sephora points to get a discount 😝
I am sure you all have heard the phrase “Life is too short for boring hair” ✨ I had my highlights for the longest time but recently decided to go more lighter & give myself a drastic change. ✨ I get asked a lot of questions on my hair, how they are not damaged after applying color to them?
I take care of my hair just how I like to take care of my skin. I have been using @evahairnyc therapy hair mask almost every day now as a conditioner & my hair seems even softer than before. It has become easy to brush my hair now. Before using or purchasing any product, I always make sure to read the reviews & that’s why I decided to try this product.
Also give a try to @evahairnyc Kweeen glitter spray which can be used for either hair or body ✨ It’s lightweight & non greasy. Perfect to add sparkles to your pre-party look.✨ #evahairnyc#influenster#influenstervoxbox
I received a new #VoxBox from my friends at @influenster and @lorealmakeup that included three complimentary shades of their new Rouge Signature Matte Lip Inks. My favorite thing is how versatile these are. The formula really is different than anything else I've used. It's not like a stain but a little thicker and can go on lighter for a natural look or applied in multiple coats to reach a fuller color matte lipstick. They don't really dry down like other matte lippies but still stays on all day only fading to a balm almost. These are really interesting. I really love the shade Rule and it lasted all day out running around. I think my favorite thing is the applicator top. Omg it is amazing. It lays the product down so smooth and caters to the cleanest lip line! I really loved these, and would totally be buying more if they were cruelty free. I really hope L'oreal gets on the jumping bunny train and goes cruelty free. If they do, these will be my first buy!! #RougeSignature#LOrealMakeup#complimentary#contest@Influenster@LOrealMakeup
❄ Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who's the prettiest of them all?
That'd be you, @tatcha's Violet-C Brightening serum. 💜 I've been lucky enough to test this beautiful product for a few weeks now (thanks to @influenster) and I'm finally able to provide you with my thoughts.
On my 1st week, I used this daily during my PM routines. But, I found no improvements.
So, on week 2, I gave my skin a lil' break and used the serum every other night instead and THAT...(!) is when I started to see a difference in my skin! Week✌ is when I woke up, one morning, and realized my skin looked smoother, more radiant, and my scars were less visible. I was literally wow'ed 😮! So, needless to say, I'm a big fan of it now and I can't wait to see the end results.
The product is meant for all skin types. It's a super light-weight, watery, serum that sinks into your skin fairly quick. And, even though, the ingredients are potent, the product itself is mild and is gentle to the skin. It says that in 8 weeks, I should see an improvement in skin texture and the appearance of fine lines, how exciting (ofc, I'll keep you posted when the time comes). Totally pricey at $88 but, I think it's worth the money considering, I only need 1 pump per use, the formula won't oxidize, and it is made up of such beautiful, complex ingredients to help your skin achieve an overall radiance. 👌
These lil vitamin c concentrates from my influenster x lancome box were honestly super disappointing. I suspect either my skin is just too dry right now or these aren't great for my skin type in general, but I've used these lil guys enough to know its not for me. They dried me out sooo badly and never quit seemed to truely sink into my skin. Instead they just sat on top in a sticky film. I'm also curious as to why lancome suggests you use this in the morning when I was under the impression you should always use vitamin C at night due to the way it makes your skin more sensitive to the sun? BUT the true deal breaker here was the smell. It's like a weird soy saucey smell that lingers forever and tbh kind of was making me sick to my stomach. I get that sometimes the best skincare doesn't smell the greatest but this is no joke. Overall, I can't reccomend this to anyone. Not only did I feel like it made my skin drier / flakey and tight, it was unpleasant to use and sooo expensive for these little bottles. Maybe such a strong vitamin C isn't for me? Any skincare people have thoughts? [Also: I still have to disclose that this is an #ad and that I recieved this #complimentary from influenster + lancome, which is somehow hilarious bc if anything, this in an anti-ad 😂😂😂] #lancomelovessephora#voxbox#contest
Honest opinion? My speciality. Thank you, @influenster for asking me to review these products! *I received these products complimentary for review and my opinions are my own* .
As stated in my live, I used the #Redken#Blondage Shampoo, Conditioner, and Extreme CAT spray. Although I’m not platinum blonde right now (in fact, I’m #bronde), my stylist @nictorosianhair would agree I “pull warm”. Brass tones show through in a matter of weeks and regardless of the shade, we always color in an ashy fashion. That’s why I continuously incorporate a #purpleshampoo into my routine. .
The shampoo was as deep purple as the bottle. Caution if you’re new to purple shampoos - this *will* stain. I shampoo’d my roots first, and entire head on my second wash. My hair felt dry and slightly unmanageable. I then towel-dried my hair and applied the CAT. It’s a spray - not a serum or lotion but rather a non-aerosol spray. I sprayed and combed through my hair, leaving in for 5 minutes. Rinsed and followed with Blondage conditioner. The conditioner was a lighter purple, and smelt a bit musty but left my hair slick.
Ultimately, my hair was less brassy but felt dry. I tend to lean toward sulfate-free, paraben-free, and silicone-free products — of which, these are not. For a color toning shampoo, this did the job... but when faced with a choice of a “cleaner” option, I’d implore consumers to do their research ✨
I got another VoxBox! I’m really happy it’s L’Oréal, it’s been the box dye behind over a decade of blue black and more recently, the prettiest butter-blonde I’ve ever achieved.
Now I’ve gotten to try some of their skin products and these beautiful lipsticks for free. The pink and nude are shades I will certainly be using on a daily basis, and the red leaves a beautiful berry stain (I love stain). They are very slow to fade, matte, and they do not cake at all because they’re so light.
I haven’t been able to take a photo with any of the shades on yet because I’m sick and just don’t feel like it.😷 This montage features a doll made with love by @cydlouvegan. 💙
