Amuse Bouche by Bite Beauty

I recently received a trio of Amuse Bouche lipsticks from Bite Beauty courtesy of Influenster. I have gotten a lot of vox boxes since I started my first blog about four years ago, and besides the Victorias Secret Sport box, I think this was one of my favorites.

For starters, these colors are SPECTACULAR.

Just. Look. At. Them. From left to right they are Beetroot, Pepper, and Gazpacho.

The lipsticks themselves smell very citrusy, have a great texture, and are made with food grade ingredients. They are even gluten-free!

Even though it took a little practice to get such a rich color on my pale, pale skin, Beetroot is definitely my favorite (see above). I paired it with some high waisted black jeans from Garage and this sparkly J Crew tee for a tapas date night. This little black bag was a darling addition (even though my phone doesn’t fit in it!).

I love Pepper (above) as well because it is perfect for a casual day of shopping and is also totally office appropriate!

Definitely a 5 out of 5 on this one. Way to go Bite Beauty!

 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Influenster Airbrush Perfect Legs

I recently received the Airbrush Perfect Legs VoxBox from Influenster with a sunless tanner-like product from Sally Hansen.

To be honest, this was the first Vox Box I received since becoming a part of Influenster about three years ago that I did not like.

Although the product was definitely too dark for my skin tone (since I received the medium) it was still just a strange product. It works like makeup for your legs, but it came off a bit too easily for my liking, and was pretty orange. It also does not gradually tan your legs like other similar products, but just wipes clean. So you go from being, in my case at least, pale to orange to pale again in one go.

This product was really just not for me, and I received similar feedback from other bloggers I talked to who also received this box.

Oh well, hopefully the next one will be better, andI honestly can’t complain after receiving probably a dozen or so great boxes from Influenster.

I recently received the Influenster Covergirl Vox Box!

After testing these out I absolutely love them! The Intensify Me eyeliner is like a felt tip pen for your eyes. I have always used a little brush for my liquid liner, but this makes it SO much easier, and allowed me to get a little more daring with my eyes for both my Sorority’s Senior Party, and Muhlenberg’s Senior Ball!

While I did like the Super Sizer Mascara, it does not give as much volume as I am used to. If you are looking for longer lashes, this is the one to pick though!

Delta Zeta Formal

This past weekend, my chapter of Delta Zeta had our fall semester formal! I thought I would share my outfit and a new skincare secret!

Since it is in November, most people opt to wear darker colors for fall formal, and then go all out with patterns and colorful dresses for the spring. Fall also tends to be less formal.

Here I am with my little and little little! I wore a black lace dress from Delia’s. I know what you’re thinking… is she 15? But since I am a very small person, if I don’t want to have to take in a dress, shopping at a “juniors” store gives me more fit options. Also, this dress is very adult looking, the perfect length, and it was about $20.

I chose to accessorize with pops of bright pink, my shoes from Sam Edelman, a skinny Kate Spade bangle, (not shown) my Kate Spade cross body bag, and with my handsome boyfriend!

I curled the bottom three inches or so of my hair with my Jose Eber Clipless Curling Iron. It is actually my favorite hair accessory.

Leading up to formal, I was worried about the effect that the cold dry air was having on my skin. Luckily, I got a special delivery from Influenster: A full size sample of Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion. I already use Vaseline lotion with Cocoa Butter, but this new formula really seems to penetrate deeper into my skin. It has worked absolute wonders, especially my legs, which get so dry from shaving.

I had an amazing time at formal and couldn’t be more excited to continue using Vaseline lotion!

 

Halloweekend and an Influenster Surprise

Once again, I have fallen behind on my blogging. I promise I’m having a super stressful semester (because otherwise it would be totally unacceptable) but now that my Honors Thesis Proposal has been submitted, and everything is kind of winding down, I have a little more time to write (if writing at 2:30 in the morning qualifies as more time).

Just before Halloween, I received a $50 Victoria’s Secret gift card from Influenster for completing their brand badge on my VSX Sports Bra! I finally got to spend it at Pink, and I spent it on new undies and a really cute limited edition Halloween tank!

While I don’t feel the need to post a picture of my underwear on the internet, however cute they may be, I will say that the Date Collection is stunning and really comfortable… especially if you’re, ahem, smaller.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so I thought I would go all out this year and attempt a pinterest worthy costume: a piñata. I spent a week gluing crepe paper to a dress and making it perfect. Then, the night I was supposed to wear the costume, I tried it on… and got stuck in it. Both of my roommates were out and I was just on the floor of my living room, crying while stuck inside a rock hard piñata dress.

Luckily, I pulled myself together and put on my ultimate white girl costume.

No one could figure out what my sister KC and I were, but we were a mouse and a panda. duh.

I had a really great night, and my nose stayed on the whole time I was out. I’d say that was an accomplishment!

VS Sports Bra

This week I received a complimentary Victoria’s Secret Sport VoxBox from Influenster!

unnamed-2

It included The Angel Sports Bra ($44.50), a six pack of Mesh Sport Socks ($29.50), a VS Tape Measure, and a 25% off coupon for VSX Sport!

The Angel

This sports bra comes in sizes 32-36A-DD and offers medium support. The cups have a memory foam that conforms to your shape and underwire for additional support. It also has an adjustable back closure.

Since I am definitely on the smaller ( erm… smallest) end of that size range, this sports bra didn’t fit me quite as well as I had hoped. However, I have this problem with a lot of clothing so I can’t really blame VS. I loved the color I received, and the fabric feels very nice.

I wore a frat tank over this when I went walking/running and it was very comfortable and breathable!

Mesh Sport Socks

unnamed-3

These socks are very soft and breathable. I love that the back of the sock is higher than the front to prevent it from slipping down into you sneakers!

Plus, the bright colors compliment my just as bright Nike’s really well.

The Studio 

I went to VS to use my 25% off coupon and found The Studio Sports Bra. I tried it on in both Hello Lovely and Neon Apricot/Orange Heat and ended up purchasing the latter.

This sports bra has a more classic fit than the Angel. It provides medium support and has removable padding, as well as adjustable straps, something I definitely need. It is super comfortable and fit me perfectly! I wore it while running errands today (it’s gross and rainy out) and I actually forgot that I was wearing it!

 

Thanks so much to Victoria’s Secret and Influenster for giving me the opportunity to be a VSSport Tester!
