"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!

SprezzaBox: September + Bonus Box!

You all may remember that I ordered a Sprezza box last year around this time of the year as a present for my boy.  If you want to see that box you can find it here!  I was amazed then, and then I ordered these and have been even more impressed!  These boxes are full of really nice quality products for men, and I love that there is a subscription company catering to the men in our lives and trying to make them dress better. When I ordered they were doing a promotion, which was the current box and a past box for $20.  I'm not sure if it is still active, but I used the code "BONUSBOX20" so you all can give it a shot!

The September box theme was "The Perry" with classic patterns, but heavier fabrics and darker colors for fall.

This box included: Bryt Dress Socks - $11.66FRESHeTech Earbuds - $29.95Peter Daniel Leather Bracelet - $10Sprezza Pocket Square - $18English Laundry Oxford Bleu Cologne - They said this small bottle was worth $20, but the full size 1.7 oz is …

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

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…
