Blossom VoxBox Review

I was selected to receive the Blossom VoxBox from Influensterย for complimentary testing purposes! It was filled with goodies for me to tryout and review. Here are the products I received and my honest opinions on them.

Bear Naked Granola. I loved the granola that Bear Naked gave me 2 packets – one was coconut curry and the other was caramel apple. I really liked both flavors! It is a bit messy to eat, though. I like granola on the run, so that’d be my only dislike.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. I hadn’t tried the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs for quite some time. It was just more hassle than what I was used to. It was easier than Iย remembered and looked a lot more natural than what I was expecting. I’d definitely use this again for special occasions.

Hair Food Root Cleansing Shampoo. I really loved the smell of the Hair Food shampoo! For a cleansing shampoo, though, it didn’t seem to get all the build up off my hair as ones I’ve tried in the past. I love it as a normal shampoo, but if it’sย super deep cleaning, I’d use something else.

Nasoya Zero Calorie Noodles. I was looking forward to trying these – only 15 calories! First off, the noodles are in a sealed bag with liquid, so they aren’t hard like I was expecting. That said, they were easy to handle and cook. I mixed pesto and Parmesan cheese with mine and they were super good. The one packet was plenty of noodles, too! I had it as leftovers twice after the original meal.

Beanitos Chips. These were really good. I had them with some peach salsa that I had at my house. They’re very scrumptious. No complaints!

Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Okay, I have to admit I was pretty dismissive at first. Like, “yay, sunscreen….” End sarcasm. But then I opened the bottle. It smells wonderful! And it’s not greasy like other sunscreens! It soaks right in and my skin felt amazing and didn’t look all shiny. I love this product!

NYC New York Color City Proof 24HR Eye Shadow. I actually did a whole blog post on how disappointed I was about this product. View it here.


That’s the Blossom VoxBox! I hope I get selected for another VoxBox soon!


New York Color City Proof 24 HR Waterproof Eye Shadow Review

I was sent this product by Influenster in the Blossom Vox Box. I got the color Tribeca Taupe, which is a pretty medium shade of brown. The NYC website says “Want round the clock color that never fades or creases? This chubby, waterproof eye shadow delivers vibrant color for up to 24HR wear! In eleven on trend shades perfect for any look, just twist, glide and go!” This product is only $3, too, which I think is a fair price for an eye shadow stick.

It was the perfect color for my skin color to give me that “not wearing any make up” look. It felt nice going on, too, and was very easy to blend. I liked applying the product a lot.

I was a little skeptical of this product at first, because my eyelids are known to eat eye shadow. It sucks, I have to use a primer or it’s gone. I was expecting this product to start wearing off, but I hoped to be proved wrong. I decided to try it without a primer to see if it truly was long wearing.

Unfortunately, my expectations were met. After about four hours of wearing the shadow, it had started to disappear on my eyelids.

Honestly, I wasn’t surprised but I was crossing my fingers I had found an answer. I tried it out with primer and it still didn’t last as long as my powder eye shadows. I think this is just the way my eyes are shaped and how much of a lid crease I have.

Overall, I’d give it a 4/10. I think it’d work for some people or as under eye shadow just fine.
