My First Influenster Voxbox – The Ivy Voxbox


Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share my first voxbox from Influenster with you and tell you a little bit about it. Influenster is a company that will send you free stuff for reviewing purposes. You just sign up at influenster.com. People say that the more reviews you do, the more voxboxes you get. However, I only did 1 review prior to this voxbox. I think it is also based on your impact score. The more social media accounts that you connect, the higher your impact score. It probably also helps that I have this blog where I write reviews constantly! Let's dive into the box! My first box contained: Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers Minis So yummy, easy to chew, not too many calories Gilette Venus Razor Leaves such a smooth shave! No cuts!…

Dior Forever Foundation Review & Super Easy Warm Toned Glam Inspo!

"Beauty, Face, Foundations, Makeup, Uncategorized"

If you're a matte foundation lover like me you will love the Dior Forever Foundation! The formulation is non-oily and it comes in 28 shades. With a price tag of $50, it claims to provide medium-full coverage while also delivering even color correction. It is also supposed to last for 16 hours. Does this foundations really do all that it claims to do? Here's what think: I like: Matte - ness and longevity: This foundation stays matte through a full day I haven't worn it for more than 12 hours so I'm not sure if it lives up to the claim but it definitely passes the "12 hour" test. I think that it's pretty rare anyways for someone to wear foundation for 16 hours. My oils do not even peak through this foundation! If…

Alternative to the Beauty Blender

"Beauty, Brushes, Makeup, Uncategorized"

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a good day so far! [gallery ids="1639,1640" type="rectangular"] So for the past couple of days I've been using the buffing brush from the BH Cosmetics set that I recently posted about, and it is AMAZING for blending out highlight. Just dab the product around as you would with a beauty blender and voila! I've been trying to find the perfect brush to blend out concealer that wouldn't remove product or leave it streaky, and honestly this brush is just dense enough to leave the concealer looking flawlessly. I haven't used this for cream contour but I'm sure it will work just as well! I have oily skin so I don't like that I have to use a wet beauty blender on my face to blend things out. Also, I…

Messy Curly Hair + My First YT Tutorial

"hair, Uncategorized"

I curl my hair a lot on an everyday basis because I love voluminous hair as opposed to flat hair. This doesn't take me long and it's super easy! It's normally so hard for my hair to keep a curl, but using this wand my hair will stay curly for 3 days! Wand: http://www.remingtonproducts.com/womens/haircare/CurlingIrons/CI96W1A-TStudio-SILK-Ceramic-Slim-Styling-Wand.aspx If you scrunch your hair a lot, try adding a few of these curls into your hair. It will look so beautiful! To get this style: Flip the direction of the curl in and out, with the exception of the pieces towards the face (flip those outwards). Here's my tutorial on how to do it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur29Y2Ede1k I don't know why this is the thumbnail when I changed it 50 times. Seriously, get it together Youtube. But anyways, show me some…

BH Cosmetics Brushes Review

"Brushes, Makeup, Uncategorized"

BH Cosmetics is known for their affordable eye shadows. I never knew they even sold brushes. After doing some research on good brushes (I was specifically looking for a lip brush), I came across their sets. They were 50% off at the time so I figured I might as well try it. I purchased the Metal Rose Makeup Brush set. This set comes with 11 brushes. I can honestly say that these brushes surpassed my expectations. I wasn't expecting them to be such great quality for the price point but it honestly is! They're one of my favorite brush brands, second to Real Techniques. I think these brushes even beat Morphe brushes! Face Brushes: Soft and dense, but not too dense. Just perfect! It feels so nice on the skin and blends out makeup…
