Influenster Frosty VoxBox

it snowed again today! we got about two inches... hopefully the roads won't ice over tonight so i can head over to the barn tomorrow. i really need to get another ride in this week :)

today i have the Influenster Frosty VoxBox to share with you all! i'm always super excited when i get picked to receive a VoxBox... who wouldn't be excited to receive a box of goodies for free?! plus, the chance to try out things i may not have even heard of is totally awesome.

this box is called the Frosty VoxBox, but it doesn't have super wintery vibe to me. here's a look at what came inside!




let's jump in with the makeup... always my favorite part! first up is a NYC Expert Last Lip Color lipstick in 418 Sugar Plum. it's a shimmery rose mauve that is right on trend for 2015. it's pretty smooth and pigmented, but it does have a strong fruity smell that i don't really care for. 

in its tube...




on my lips...




and finally, swatched next to the next product!




the next product is Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 001 Black. it's very pigmented and black and goes on really smoothly. sadly, on me it transferred :( i was super bummed because this is a beautiful liner!

here's the packaging...




in keeping with the makeup, next up is Rimmel Gentle Eye Make Up Remover! it's a liquid makeup remover that does its job quite well. i didn't try it on waterproof mascara as i don't use that, but it definitely takes off regular mascara. i poured it on a cotton round and held it to my eye to break up the product, then it wiped away pretty easily. my only complaint with this is that it seemed to react with some products and make a funky smell... i'm pretty sensitive to smells!

here it is!




i received a sample size of the No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum, but i didn't try this out because i'm on prescription skincare. cute packaging, though!




next up, the EcoTools Full Volume Styler round brush. i liked that this brush has both synthetic boar bristles and traditional plastic bristles. it's a very strong brush, so if you have a sensitive scalp, you might not like it. i have pretty raggedy ends at the moment, and it really helps smooth them out, which i love!




on to the food! first up is McCormick Gourmet All Natural Thyme. the shaker it comes in is adorable and handy... but i don't cook with thyme (or cook much at all, really!), so i can't say how it tastes. smells good, though :)




then there's Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea (Decaffeinated). it's one of their Holiday Teas! i didn't care for this, i'm not really into flavored teas (or hot teas at all)... however, Mr. Pawlish loved it!




lastly, the Red Vines Fruit Vines Bites. i LOVED these! so, so yummy :) i got them in strawberry, and they are definitely something i would purchase.




hope you enjoyed this overview/review of the Frosty VoxBox products! big thank you to Influenster for sending this out to me :) if you're interested in being an Influenster, just email me and let me know, i have some invites available!

Happy Wednesday... you're halfway to the weekend! Ria :)
