2012 Influenster "Mom Box" rundown

What do you mean, clean off the table next time?

Here is a quick rundown of the items I received in Influenster's 2012 MomVoxBox. Through their program, I was able to get a whole box of goodies to try and review. Yay!

ImPRESS press on manicure

One of the items I received as a freebie to try and review from Influenster in their MomVox was the Impress Press-On Manicure.

The advertisements promise:
  • NO DRY TIME!  (It's an adhesive backed plastic fingernail, so why is this an issue?)
  • SUPERIOR LASTING SHINE (They are quite glossy and pretty)
  • EASY REMOVAL (As long as you're done wearing them. I couldn't get them off without messing up the nail to reposition them)
  • LASTS UP TO A WEEK (I've never had press on nails last more than a day - after an hour, the first one fell off.)

June 2012 Birchbox

In June, the theme for the Birchboxes was a travel/summer fun theme.  This is a quick rundown of the box I received.

BIC Soleil Savvy Razors (Bzz Campaign report)

A few months ago, I signed up for a promo company called BzzAgent.  If you are accepted into a campaign, companies send you products to try out, and if you honestly like the products, recommend to people you know.  For my first campaign, I was invited to try out BIC's new Soleil Savvy Razors.

In a nutshell, they're standard triple-bladed cartridge razors.  However, they're made with the idea that replaceable cartridges are friggin' expensive and most people don't buy them. 

June 2012 Glambag (part 1)

♪ Eyeliner and lipstick and bags covered in glitter.... ♪
This month was my first ever Glambag, and I was quite excited to get it in.  Included this month were:  Marbella felt eyeliner, NYX round lipstick, Philosophy Take a Deep Breath moisturizer, and Living Proof frizz nourishing styling cream.

MAC x Beth Ditto Pro Longwear Creme in Dear Diary

My glorious stick, in a totally original pose.
I do not understand my obsession with bright pink lipsticks.  Currently I own around 7, and I currently wear 0 with any regularity.  Every time I see one, I'm like a magpie.  I have to stop and stare at the shiny.  MUST POSSESS.  It never fails.  The kicker is that they really don't flatter me at all.  I'm way too pale to pull off a shade like this.  Fortunately (maybe?  I'm not sure on this one) that's never stopped me from wearing what I want.  I think this obsession started around the time that MAC launched their super-hard to get Dress Camp collection featuring the drool-worthy (in my not-so-humble opinion) Too Fab.
