"Lash Like a Boss" Maybelline VoxBox

I received the Maybelline Lash Like a Boss VoxBox complementary from Influenster!  I was so excited.  I have gotten lots of boxes from them at this point, but very few are ever makeup and that is one of my favorite things!  


This box contained two items, the Master Precise Curvy Liquid Eyeliner, and the Colossal Big Shot Mascara.

My liquid eyeliner had just dried out, so I can't tell you how excited I was about this!  I wear winged lined quite a bit, but had never been truly good at getting a good line and wing.  Apparently I just didn't have the right eyeliner because now it's the easiest thing ever!  It is a fat tool that fits well in your hand, so it is very comfortable to hold.  The tip is flat and comes to a point, it looks almost like a spade in a deck of cards.  So if you want a fat line you can turn the tip one direction, or flip it the other way for one that is skinny and precise.  Overall, this honestly couldn't be any better, I love it!

The mascara I liked, but I honestly wasn't as in love with it as much as the eyeliner.  It has a good brush and coats the lashes nicely.  As for the effect it has, I really didn't see much of one.  It darkened my lashes up and may have made them look a little longer, but nothing compared to the full or lengthy look you can get from other Maybelline mascaras.  Over top of another mascara it looks better and works to separate and smooth out clumps, but alone it just wasn't that impressive.  It wasn't bad by any means, I would just reccomend others from their line over it.

And here is a little glimpse of my completed eye makeup using both products!

I received all products mention complementary from Influenster for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.


***Update: So I pulled my mascara out one day and discovered that at some point it had broken... The little piece that scrapes off the excess mascara had broken off, so the wand was all messy and it was completely unusable. You all know I am always honest about my feelings on the products I am sent, sponsored or not, and I was super sad this one ended up badly! I searched around the internet for other reviews and saw no mention of this, so maybe I just got a dud. But here is the bright side, I tweeted a picture of it saying I was sad it broke and tagged Influenster and Maybelline, and Maybelline tweeted me back! They gave me a number to call, and after a short phone call they promised to compensate me for the product. I made sure they knew it had been sent to me for free, but they wanted to anyway! 
So today in the mail I received a coupon for $8 off of any product. Though the mascara didn't totally work out, there is something to be said for a company that so wholeheartedly stands behind their product! I was impressed! Go Maybelline!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
