Have you heard of Influenster yet? It’s a website where you earn badges by filling out short surveys about your interests, habits and lifestyle. These badges qualify you for different VoxBoxes. Voxboxes contain a variety of products (often full size!) from top brands. When you qualify you receive the box at no cost to you in exchange for offering reviews on the products received.
I qualified for the Holiday VoxBox. This was my first time receiving one and I was so excited! Waiting for it to arrive seemed like an eternity! The postal service in my area isn’t so great and since the Christmas season started they haven’t even been ringing our buzzer, instead they are just tossing a “Sorry we missed you…” tag in the mailbox and taking off with our packages. We did all of our Christmas shopping online this year so it seems like new packages are arriving every day. There have been days that we cancelled plans in order to wait around for packages only to find one of these “Sorry we missed you…” tags in the mailbox. We then have to hike down to the post office and pick up our packages ourselves. End rant! This happened when the VoxBox was delivered so I had to wait until the following day to actually pick it up. But it is finally here and I have had a chance to try a couple of the items I received.
Here’s what was in the Holiday VoxBox:
The first product I want to tell you about is the NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City. I was excited to try this gloss because I haven’t really tried any products from this brand before. NYC isn’t sold in San Francisco so it isn’t super convenient for me to get a hold of.
This is the description of NYC Liquid Lipshine according to Influenster:
Straight from the city that never sleeps, NYC New York Color offers products with uptown style at down-to-earth prices, from $.99 – $4.99. The energy, style and color of New York City shines through the wide range of shades, textures and innovative products. NYC always delivers the most on-trend products & shades hot off the runway!
A beauty-editor favorite is Liquid Lipshine ($2.49). It has pure pigments that created a 3-D gloss effect. Vitamin E provides shine and a moisturizing feel. The formula is non-sticky, super shiny & soft. Available in 10 on-trend shades from neutral nudes, to berries & fuchsias. Start shopping for NYC at these stores nearest you: Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Family Dollar, Duane Reade, Kmart, HEB, and others. Visit newyorkcolor.com to check out all shades and fun products from New York Color!
I really enjoyed the NYC Liquid Lipshine. The smell/taste is nice. The color (Nude York City) is not one I would have chosen for myself but I was surprised by how nice the color looked on me. It looks great by itself as a sort of peachy nude shimmer but also looks great layered over lipsticks. High shine and not super sticky. For $2.49 you can’t go wrong.
I will review the other products in future posts so please stay tuned!
