Influenster Review: Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit

Hello everyone! Tonight, I'll be reviewing the final product from my Beauty Blogger Voxbox! Enjoy!

*Kiss Website
*I you received this product complimentary

Products Info:
-Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit provides everything you need for amazing lashes instantly! Each kit includes 1 pair of Eyelashes, 1 3g Adhesive,and 1 PRO Lash Applicator. The new PRO Lash Applicator allows for a flawless application every time!

My thoughts: 
-Great quality for false eyelashes
-Perfect for people who haven't tried eyelashes yet
-I adore the lash applicator. Makes it easier to apply the lashes
-The adhesive works pretty good too.
-The lashes itself look natural and blend into my real lashes!

-Measure the lashes on your eyes first, if they are too big/long then cut a bit from the INSIDE of each lash
-Apply a small amount of glue to the lashes and wait about 30 seconds or until the adhesive gets tacky. This will make it easier for the lashes to adhere.
-Try apply a some liner on the top so that the lash line will be less visible.
-Apply one coat of mascara after you applied the lashes. This will help blend the fake ones into your real ones.
-To remove. slowly pull them off. You can store them for another use or you can toss them out

Influenster Review: NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compact

Hello my lovelies! I have another review for you all from my voxbox! Enjoy!

*NYC New York Color Website 

Product Info:

My thoughts: 
-I love that it comes with a primer and illuminate
-Great for beginners
-The primer does crease a bit after use
-Love the range of colors
-Perfect for creating a smokey eye
-They aren't too pigmented so you have to pack on the shadow a bit
-There was a bit of fall out
-The only thing that I didn't like was that all the shadows are shimmers. I would have liked to see some matte shadows.

Shadows: (Pictured Above)
-Illumminator: White cream highlight with flecks of silver
-Dark Gray: A smokey gray with specks of silver like the illuminator
-Medium Gray: Muted gray w/ shimmer

Influenster Review: Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

Hello my lovely ladies! I have another review for you all from my Beauty Blogger voxbox from Influenster! Enjoy!

*Sign up for Influenster!

*Not Your Mother's Website

After applying:

Product Info: 
-KINKY MOVES™ helps encourage natural curls by giving them that extra oomph they so desperately need. It eliminates frizz and fly-aways to show your true locks. It is also infused with natural grapeseed & jasmine.

My thoughts: 
-Definitely removed any frizziness and fly-aways I had.
-Gave my hair lots of shine without looking greasy
-I love the it enhances my natural waves without making my hair hard or "crunchy"
-The scent is nice and not overwhelming
-Only con about this product is that it has a weird after smell. (Like flowering dogwood trees). It does go away after a bit though.

Overall, I absolutely love this hair cream. I would also recommend the Not Your Mother's: Beach Babe- Texturizing Sea Salt Spray!

Price & Where to Buy: 
-CVS, Walmart, and ULTA among many other retail locations
