Marc Jacobs Beauty Vox Box #Velvet Noir Mascara

     First off, I want to say Thank You to Influenster and Marc Jacobs Beauty for the opportunity to try their new VelvetNoir Mascara. It is absolutely stunning! The packaging is sleek and beautiful and the product itself is just incredible. **Insert photo of box**
   This Mascara promises to give 1800% more volume and out shine falsies altogether.  "The lash-maximizing curvy brush places the most volume at the hard-to-reach center lash line." It promises smudge free length and volume in 3 strokes or less! This mascara is just to beautiful.

   I tested this mascara on my dainty lashes to see just how much volume I could obtain. My lashes aren't what they used to be, after chemo they grew back in super thin. I thrive on finding a mascara to make them look full again, and Marc Jacobs Beauty did just that! I am in love with this product. <3
   I'm convinced this is my new go to mascara, my holy grail. Here are some examples of what this product can do below.
Before with nothing on:
1 layer of mascara
2 Layers of mascara

   Overall, I think this mascara will be the new IT mascara of 2016. You can pick one up at Sephora!

JingleVoxBox via Influenster

   Yay! I got in for the JingleVoxBox, compliments of Influenster. This was a nice surprise to say the least. I've been a member of Influenster for a few years now, and have received numerous boxes in the past. Let's see what's in the box!

  The first product in this box was the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. It retails for $8.99-$15.99 depending on the size. The one I received was 1 oz or 28 grams. A decent amount I think.
  This moisturizer is said to be very rich and creamy. It's absorbs super fast and doesn't leave a greasy feeling on your fingers. It's good for slightly dry skin, all the way to severely dry skin. It works by attracting water to the skin and assists in moisture loss. It really does feel amazing on the skin!

   Biscoff Cookies also happened to make an appearance. There were 3 packs of these delicious cookies in my box. For 250 grams it costs around $2.99. Pretty affordable I think. These almost reminded me of a cross between McDonald's cookies (the lemony ones) and shortbread cookies. They're delicious either way and go good with a coffee in the morning or any time of day really.

  Ore-Ida Tater Tots   are just great. Who doesn't love a good tot. They're chock full of protein and other goodness the whole family loves. We ended up making Totchos with ours. (Basically Nachos/Tacos but with tots instead of shells or chips.) They retail for $3.00 a bag at your local grocer. They're definitely a good addition to any meal.

Hallmark Itty Bittys Hallmark came out with these little guys (and gals) during the holidays. Their are so many to choose from. I received the cutest little Olaf! He's very soft, super cute, and well made. Definitely my favorite of the box. They retail for around $6.95 at the Hallmark Gold Crown Store.

NYC City Proof 24HR WaterProof Eyeliner retails for $3.99 at most drug stores. It really is waterproof! I've tried liners in the past and they were easily wiped off, but this one sticks. I tried it the day I got it and messed up a winged liner (the bane of my existence!) I tried to correct it with a Q-tip and it would not budge! This is definitely my new go to summer liner!

KISS True Volume Lashes. For around $3.99 a pair, these lashes are a steal! They are easy to apply and come in a wide range, from barely noticeable to BAM In your face! They're good quality for the price, and super soft.

I also received the KISS Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe, which also retails for around $3.99. The aloe leaves your lids feeling nourished instead of abused like most lash glues. Definitely one of those need to have beauty tools!

The last thing in the box was the Pure Ice Nail Polish. I received the color Shore Bet. It's a beautiful nude sandy color and definitely reminds me of being off at a beach somewhere instead of in the dead of winter! It's long lasting formula and array of colors allows for a range of nail art capabilities. These polishes retail for $1.97 at WalMart.

Overall I was impressed with this box! A good variety of contents to appease any Influenster. If you aren't signed up, click This link to go sign up and become an Influenster today! xoxo
