Influenster: Violet VoxBox

So, I received my SECOND voxbox, the Violet voxbox. Huzzah for free stuff!!!!
I even did a pintrest board specifically for this box.


  1. Goody headband (black/purple) ($6 retail)
  2. Goody Quickstyle hairbrush ($13 retail)
  3. Soyjoy bar (cranberry) ($1 retail)
  4. Sally Hansen new triple shine nail color (reef-rat) ($5 retail)



Goody headband

(black/purple) ($6 retail)

Features: Ouchless headwrap, reversible for 2 different looks, moisture-wicking fabric to keep you dry, holds back flyaways,
I haven't even touched it yet. I'm not a terribly sporty girl right now!

Goody Quickstyle Hairbrush

($12.99 retail)

Features: microfiber bristles are protected by antimicrobial properties to inhibit the growth of mold or mildew from forming on the brush, dries hair 30% faster, for all hair tyes
Yes, I tried this one. I have wanted to try one for a long time, but I was a little disappointed. I didn't notice a significant change in dry time. Not sure why. I could have to do with the fact that I have hair over 20 inches long. Who knows?!
On a lighter note, it was a really good brush to use. The bristles were firm but yielding, the plastic balls on the bristles didn't break off easily, and it had a lot of coverage.


($0.99 retail)

Features: all natural soy, lots of vitamins, etc.
Soyjoy ... what to say, what to say ...
Well, I will come right out with it. If you are a health nut and enjoy foods that taste bad, this is for you. No, the bar didn't taste terrible, but it was borderline diet food. All you ladies out there know what I'm talking about!
The bars really are very good for you, having a TON of potassium, fiber, and iron, but the texture, for me, was very hard to get over. It says on the package "moist" ... but its borderline "not" dry.
Its chewy, which wasn't so bad. The smell was just fine, and the retail price is minimal. But. Eh.
... Yeah, just eh.

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish

($4.99 retail)

This was my absolute favorite item! I love getting nail polish!
Reasons I love Sally Hansen's new polish:
  1. It dries quickly.
  2. It lasts.
  3. The brush is WIDE. It covers my entire nail in a single stroke!
  4. When I need to take it off, it reacts well with the polish remover.
  5. The color (reef-rat) goes well with my collection.
I wouldn't buy it at $5 a pop, BUT I will be waiting for it to come on sale!!!
If you want to see more colors and examples of this polish (like I did), I compiled a pintrest board with a TON of examples on it.

Review of 8 Aziza Palettes

Aziza ... Dollar Tree ...
When I first bought these palettes, I thought is as getting something special. There were tons of shades that I loved and lots of potential. Thus, I bought all 8 that were available for $1 each. After doing some research, I found that these are really more of 2-3 star item instead of the 3-4 star that I thought they were. I tried out every color on every palette!!! Here is my final decision/opinion.

Overview of all these Aziza palettes

Here are some important things to know before buying the palettes, things that hold true for all 8 of these palettes.

1) The light colors barely show, even with primer and a white cream base color.
2) These are not very pigmented at all.
3) The colors really do go well together. If you are looking to buy individual colors somewhere else, you can use these palettes as a reference for what shades to put together.
4) You will need to use a primer and maybe a white cream base color, also, to get the colors to show at all.
5) The product lasts pretty long with E.L.F. Primer. (No creasing, also.)
6) Aziza is a dollar store product that is dollar store quality.

(The information will be ABOVE the picture.)

Dallas was the one palette everyone raved about.  They loved the natural color palette and how each shade blended well with the others. I liked all the colors on here except for the three lightest ones. My favorite was the darkest brown, a sort of dusty, muddy chocolate.

Paris was the first palette I did swatches of. I had to go over the colors 4-5 times to get them to show very well on my hand. This was a tie for my least favorite palette. The colors are too childish, in my opinion.

Nashville was the other tie for my least favorite, mostly because I REALLY don't like blue eyeshadow. The dark blue on this would be better if it were more pigmented. As it stands, I used a base and primer, as well as packed on the powder, and I still ended up with a barely-there color. 
On another note, I really liked the grey-ish and the lighter red (a.k.a. The colors with hearts on them in the picture below.)

Phoenix was actually a favorite. I was disappointed with the mint; I was hoping it would be more pigmented. As you can see in the picture, the mint comes out as more of a light day-look than a bold look. I actually like it just a such tis way, so no hard feelings, Aziza!
The greys surprised me. They made for a great smokey look. Since there is. Bright and a dark grey, a smokey look is possible for both a day a night look with this palette. 
The white made for the best brow highlighter out of all the palettes.
The red is a fantastic brick color that is rather tame. The pigment leans towards a brown rather than an orange, so the red isn't harsh in any sense of the word. 

This New York palette reminds me of chocolate bars.
Nothing special about this palette. Every shade is a variation or copy of the other shades. I did have three favorite colors, though.

I apologize for the blurry photos! I didn't realize until it was too late!!!
I really liked the plum on this one. I loved the reddish tendencies it had, pulling away from the blues found in a lot of purples. It makes it easier to use a purple without having a black eye look!

Denver ... was just fine. I liked the chocolates in this one a lot. The shade of blue also seemed brighter that with Paris. On the right, you can see where I paired the darkest brown with the blue and came up with a fun day or night look.

Say hello to my other favorite!!!
(Hello, "other favorite"!)
Thank you :)

This is probably the best palette they have, if you prefer green eyeshadow over blue. It very much reminds me of a forest palette. If you want a subtle, earthy look, this is the one to buy. The green is such a shade that it doesn't overpower you with color. The browns are such that you can easily creat a smokey look without being too dark.
I would not say that this is a palette for a night look, though, as these h no turn out to be very pigmented.

That's all, folks!

New favorite foundation: Rimmel Match Perfection!!!

I am very excited to introduce to you the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation!!!

I used it for the first time today ... And I switched to it from my Mary Kay. I just like how it feels! Plus, it cost me about $5 in comparison to the MK price. I wore it all day. My only complaint is that it came off rather easily. Now, I'm not sure if that is because I have oily skin or if its because of the brand. Who knows!

I am classic ivory. The color is fabulous and the coverage is just as great. Just don't blow your nose, or you may have to reapply!

Color tattoo initial review: white and taupe

I went to Walmart and did a huge haul. I it were two of the color tattoo shades from Maybelline: infinite white and tough as taupe. This post is just my initial thoughts on them after having used them in a rush this morning.

This is the infinite white. I bought it because I couldn't find a single white eyeliner pencil at Walmart!!! Anyways, a little goes a long way. I'm looking forward to experimenting with this as a base to the rest of my shadow later on. It stayed on all day without a problem, and I had no problems with application. It's very creamy!!

This is the tough as taupe color. Honestly ... It looks like mud. It's a brown, but it is sort of grey, sort of purple .... I ended up buying a scarf to match it. Hehe. It went on the same shade as it looked (a.k.a. It was very true to the color), which wasn't what I was expecting. Again, a little goes a long way!!!

I will do a follow up review with images of it on my eyes (hopefully) after I have had more time to experiment with them.

August Favorites

Here are some if my favorite things that I got in August ... Well, at least the cosmetics/health care items.

Alba face and body wash
I'm obsessed with them and the success that I've had using this brand. My oily face is now under control thanks to the body and face scrub!!! Note: it smells like citrus.

Suave lavender body lotion
I love this. A lot. The smell is light and fresh, plus the smell carries with you throuout the day. I like to use it on my stretch marks. Honestly ... It is very soothing. It is a must for every at-home spa day.

Pure Ice nail polish
Specifically, glittery one. It makes me feel like a ricks tar every time I look at my fingers. I like to wear it with a silver polish. Totally worth the $2 I spent to get it. Twice. That's how awesome it is.

Alba acne dote review!!!

I have been using this for almost a week now. Initial thoughts: way better than the Mary Kay facial cleanser I was using! Plus, it's less expensive ... So that's a plus.

The first two days I used it twice a day and I didn't have problems. By the third day,I had to cut down to once a day, otherwise my skin became dry. But, it made things easier!

It's very difficult to wash off my face, since its made of crushed walnut shell. I have found that using it in the shower is the easiest and most effective way to use this product.

You don't want to press extremely hard to exfoliate, like you might want to on other products to make them more effective. Alba works by gently rubbing the skin, no scrubbing necessary.

Honestly, I was impressed from the first time I tried using it. My face was beyond clean. It took off the dirt and oil, plus it exfoliated. What it did not do is that it didn't make my face shiny like Mary Kay does.

I have changed brands officially!

Elmer's Glue will keep your fingers clean?!

Yes, that IS correct. Normally, people say to use tape. It makes sense: tape peels off easily and can keep your finger-flesh free of nail polish. But. What it cannot do is get in the crevasses ... tape cannot be applied with a brush (it sticks to your fingers!) ... And tape is more expensive considering how far a container of glue will go!

This is perfect for nail marbling, by the way ...

Starting out with reviewing ...

I'm super excited to begin reviewing make up products! After all, I use them ... So why not let people know about MY experience with them?!.!

I plan on doing reviews, some tutorials, and some DIY's. hope to see you again!
