"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!

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…

Date Box: October

So you may or may not remember, about two Christmases ago I ordered a Date Box!  It had hot chocolate and mugs, with a gingerbread house kit (you can find the full review here).  My boyfriend as I had the most fun with it, and the mugs were gorgeous, so on a whim this October I decided to give it another try!
As stated in the last post, it is about $40 a month, which is a bit steep in my opinion, but if you really need some new date night ideas, then this would be a fun and creative way to get them.  If you search, you can find a discount code bringing the price of your first box down to $5.  I'm not going to post the code because it isn't mine to give out, but they are easy to come by!  They also offer a digital option now, which is $8 a month.  If you scroll down to the bottom of their about page there is a bar where you enter your email and they send you your first digital date for free, which seems to be a cooking class for two!
The experience is significantly more person…

Three Ways to Christmas Shop on the Cheap

Christmas shopping is something a lot of us tend to put off until the last second, and then are scrambling the week before Christmas to buy things just because you feel like you have to.  You end up buying something, at exorbitant obnoxious prices, that you know the person you are buying for won’t even like!

I came up with a few ways you can get awesome presents, not have to kill yourself trying to get them at the last minute, and not break the bank...
My first suggestion, is to shop in advance! I know, this seems super simple, but you wouldn't believe the difference it makes to start a couple months in advance, and just buy things you know the person would like as you see them.  This year, I stopped in an antique shop on my way to work one day, just to look around.  I ended up leaving with this gorgeous bowl, mug, and tea set with I am planning to give to family members, and because the place was about to close down, I got them for half off the original price!That leads me right in…
