Another product that I am loving from my Influenster Holiday Vox Box is this new lipgloss from NYC New York Color. The color I got was Nude York City…this fabulously shiny nude color that works perfectly with my skin tone! The gloss itself is a little sticky for my liking (even though the bottle clearly states ‘not sticky’) but the super shine of it trumps the stickiness in my opinion. (My husband will likely say otherwise, though!) The wand is a fuzzy spatula type thing that I am not in love with as I think it makes it a little hard to apply but overall, I am loving this lipshine!

{i tried it} Kiss Nail Dress – nail decals

Another product I was excited to receive in my Holiday Vox Box from Influenster was the Kiss Nail Dress nail decals. I have tried the Sally Hanson nail decals in the past and really liked the concept of them but they were a little difficult to put on by myself…so I was curious to see how these worked.

I got the fun sparkly leopard print version in my Holiday Vox Box and couldn’t wait to try them. They were super easy to put on…way easier than the Sally Hanson ones! There were no backings to peel off, no way for them to rip, no cutting necessary. The decals themselves are on a clear plastic sheet so you can hold them above your nail to see which one will fit making it almost impossible to screw it up. You simply select the size, peel it off, stick it to you nail, smooth it down, and then file off the extra off the tip. Easy peasy!

Mine lasted for about a week before I needed to remove them. They did being chipping a bit before that but being that the base color on them was nude, it wasn’t easy to tell. I could see how they may not last as long if you were to have a bright or dark solid color, though. Removal is super easy. You simply peel them off. That’s it. NOTHING ELSE!!

I loved them so much that I went out and bought 2 new packs this past weekend.

{i tried it} Goody QuikStyle Brush

 

I recently joined Influenster and was thrilled when I qualified to receive the Holiday Vox Box full of all kinds of goodies to try out and review! When I saw that the Goody QuikStyle Brush was included as one of the items, I was thrilled!! The brush sparked my interest when I saw it in my Lucky Magazine a couple weeks ago but wasn’t sure if it would be worth the money.

I have medium length, naturally wavy, THICK hair. Straightening it takes a lot of time so the idea of a brush with tiny little microfiber towels in between the bristles was intriguing. I was excited to use my new brush so I rushed off to wash my hair (which if you know me…you will know isn’t something I do often!) and give myself a blow out. The brush itself had a bit of a chemical smell to it which was a little strange and seemed to get more intense as the heat from the blow dryer warmed it up. (The smell was weird but did seem to go away after the second use.)

My hair did seem to dry a little faster and was relatively frizz free which is hard to come by for me. The thickness of the brush made it a little hard to get the brush under to the roots but other than that, I loved it!! Who doesn’t want to save a bit of time while blow drying their hair?!?
