You know what is awesome? Opening the door to check the mail and finding gifts waiting for you. I tell you some days being a blogger extraordinaire is pretty cool. Let me stop . . . while, I am sure being a blogger extraordinaire is a wonderful thing, I am far from one. What I am though is a member of Influenster.
What is Influenster?

Anyhoo . . .
Recently, I received my beauty bloggers voxbox for 2012.
Let me quickly tell you what I received:
NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact: An all-in-one compact with everything needed for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator, and complementing shadows. I was sent the Limited Edition Dark Shadows collection. Will I wear it? Yes, I will. I am an eyeshadow hoarder. I love dressing up my eyes and I cannot wait to try this collection on.
Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit: Eyelashes, latex-free adhesive, and applicator.
Will I wear them: Yes, I will. I just wrote above, I love dressing up my eyes and having long think lashes make me feel glamorous. I am going to save these for a special occasion or event.
Bath & Body Works Mini Candle (plus $10 coupon): I received the fragrance “Black Pepper Bergamot.” At first, I was disappointed that I did not get a fragrance like cherry blossoms however, I like this candle and its smell. It is a mix of spicy pepper, bergamot, and lavender. It is a masculine fragrance and though I am a woman who loves being a woman, I like surrounding myself with masculine colors and items in my home.
EBoost (packet): Natural ingredients to boost your energy with the after crash. Will I drink this? Probably not. I just do not trust energy drinks even ones with natural ingredients. I try to avoid caffeine in my diet. I do not drink coffee and tea only once in a while mostly, when ill.
Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin: These pins allow you to achieve three updo styles. Simply twirl your hair up and spin the two Spin Pins in for a perfect undone bun, side bun, or double bun. Will I wear this? Haha! See Sharon’s page.
Not Your Mother’s Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream: Kinky Moves is infused with natural grape sees and jasmine to encourage natural curls and eliminate frizz and fly-aways. Will I use it? Did you see my page? When my hair is not being chopped off it grows straight. I will however try this product on my daughter’s hair. She wears her hair natural which is thick and curly. Normally, she uses natural hair care products that are natural themselves. This product is not a natural product but, it shouldn’t hurt to try it.
Vitabath Fragrance Mist: A lightweight fragrance mist infused with conditioning vitamins and a unique antioxidant blend. The fragrance mist comes in 16 fabulous scents. I received green tea and sage. Will I wear it? I must say the fragrance of green tea and sage is an interesting one. I don’t particularly care to smell like tea and sage so, maybe, I will use this in the evenings after a shower when I am looking to unwind for the day.
That is it. Are you a blogger who is a member of Influenster?
