My Ore-Ida Totchos recipe

As part of my Jingle VoxBox, I got a coupon to get a packet of Ore-ida tots for free from influenster. As I went through my pinterest looking for recipe ideas, I found one and kind of made my own healthier version of sloppy joes. Check mine out or check out other recipes from them!

KISS True Volume Lashes & Aloe adhesive

I got an awesome VoxBox from Influenster.com full of goodies to try for free, and one of them was KISS True Volume Lashes with lash adhesive. I will admit, I’m not really good with putting lashes on and was SUPER intimidated. But alas, I had an event come up so I decided to try it. I used to work at Ulta so I knew how to apply them.

*Grab some tweezers, a mirror, q-tip, and scissors.
*Place a strip next to your eye and gauge if it fits. If it’s too long, trim them.
*I Use the handy adhesive with aloe, and brush along the lash line of the strip.*Tilt your head back and look down towards the mirror, kind of eyes 1/2 open.
*Place the strip on with your tweezers, working slowly from the outside in. Using a qtip to lightly push down the strip, moving along your lash line.
*Slightly close your eyes and fan them with your hands.
*VOILA! You did it 🙂

What’s nice about these is that it doesn’t dry right away so there’s wiggle room, but does dry quickly so you are out the door. They said still all night and it didn’t hurt when I pulled them off. Used my lancome makeup remover (nice and oily) to hydrate that area.

Both the lashes and adhesive are $3.99 so if you do it once in awhile, it’s a pretty awesome deal. Good luck!FullSizeRender

Marc Jacobs Beauty VoxBox

IMG_0094

 

I am part of a website that get free product to try. All I have to do is give it my honest review so this month I got the Marc Jacobs Beauty Voxbox from Influenster.com. AHHHMAAZZINNGGGG! I got the Velvet Noir Mascara and let me tell you…DAYUM SON! I have been using the fabulous Dior Diorshow for years. It’s the only mascara that does what it says, and of course smells like roses. When I got this to try, I was thinking, “cool another mascara.” I was very pleasantly surprised and how amazing it is.

Pros:

*Color – bold black
*Packaging – expensive and eye catching
*Brush – It spirals so that it catches every lash     *Stay factor- It never flaked on me and held a good curl

Cons:

*Price – $26 It’s not a con to me because I spent that much on Dior but it’s a little higher than most.

Overall I am very happy with this mascara and would definitely consider it over my Dior next time. Thanks so much for reading…what’s your favorite mascara?!
