Vox Box and my First Review + a glimpse into my daily routine

Monday, August 3, 2015

Please note this post contains a review of products that were sent to me complimentary for me to review. This review is 100% my opinion.

I finally decided to sign up for Influenster, all I have to say is why on earth did it take me this long. If you aren’t familiar with it let me give you the break down. Influenster is a site where you use your
social influence to review and test products. From time to time influenster will have surveys for you to do based off your profile and similar interests to products they have for testing. If after the survey you qualify they send you free product to test and review known as a Vox Box. It is absolutely 100% free!

I signed up about 2 weeks ago and within a week I had my first survey and a few days later my first ever vox box was en-route to my house. Let me write a little disclaimer here; after scowering the interwebs on how to get a vox box I came to realize that it normally doesn’t happen all that quick. The key is to have a high influence on your social media and to participate and keep your badges active. If your profile shows this and the products they have match your profile you are more likely to be given a survey, then based on your answers a vox box.

My first box arrived and I cannot contain my excitement since it was the Yves Saint Laurent box!!! The box was beautiful black and white and inside was a full sized Touche Eclat Blur Perfector (retail value $55.00), the second product I received was the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer this was more of a deluxe sample but the full size retails for $52.00. So not too bad for my first Vox Box!

My first impression is that the blur perfector is gorgeous, and the package is on point totally chic and feminine. The primer to me looks like a magical elixir, it has beautiful gold flecks and a great aroma, not that I would expect anything less from YSL. It has been about 6 days since I received my samples and I have been using them for the past 5 days! The primer works really well, as an oily skinned person I am very picky about my primer. I was worried the gold flakes would make me look shiny, but they hardly show up. I immediately apply my foundation and a setting powder for a stay all day look. Even being out on sales calls in this heat the makeup stayed put. I applied the blur perfector to my T-zone and used it as a touch up throughout the day when I noticed any shine. It’s basically the bomb, easy to apply and perfect to carry with you in your bag. 

Y'all This NYX setting spray is my current obsession!

I would rate both of these products an 8 out of ten. I am a little disappointed in the price of the primer, 52.00 for 1 oz!! I currently love and use Becca ever matte poreless prime and it costs 36.00 for over an oz, I feel like they both do the same job and the Becca lasts a little longer throughout the day and is a lot more cost effective, so I will likely stick with it, but the YSL is a total #2 contender for me and will be perfect for traveling. The blur perfector is the same 55.00 for this small compact, yes it does a great job at hiding imperfections and giving me great skin but it’s pricey. That being said I would still splurg on it. I love having a product that can touch up oiliness in a snap, and I have always been a huge fan of YSL so I am excited to have two new products to add into my makeup routine!

I hope you enjoyed my review! I am sure they have some great boxes planned for the future!
