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!

SPOTTED: $4.99 at chain drugstores nationwide

The different colors:
What did I think?

Well.  I liked the primer and foudation that comes in the pack.  It allows the shadow to set and stay longer. Also removes those yucky bags. The color for me could have been more.  I got the brown eyes one and mostly gave a natural look.

Same picture as one for lashes had eye shadow on too.
I like more dramatic shadowm  I would have went with the one for smokey brown eyes.  Mine are hazel and have some green and gold in them and I like more purples in my shadow.  Personal preference.
I would definately use the product again and liked the looks.  The price can't be beat either!

****I received a compact in exchange for word of mouth advertising.  All opinions expressed are my own and the facts from the product site.   ****

Kiss® Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit

More fun stuff from my Beauty Vox Box
I have to admit when I saw these I laughed.  I waited till halloween to try them and was surprisingly impressed.
Made from highest quality human hair. Use with Kiss adhesive for optimal results. Latex free, odor free, waterproof, flexible formula for 24hr hold, easy applicator.
SPOTTED: $4.99 at Walgreens
Ever tried applying eyelashes but became frustrated when they didn’t position correctly? Only to remove them and start over? Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit provides everything you need for amazing lashes instantly! Each kit includes 1 pair of Eyelashes, 1 3g Adhesive,and 1 PRO Lash Applicator. The new PRO Lash Applicator allows for a flawless application every time! Kiss lashes come in a variety of styles that are perfect for everything from day wear to a formal evening event.

To Use: Simply apply glue to the lash band and let set for 30-60 seconds for adhesive to become slightly clear and tacky. Using the PRO Lash Applicator, apply lashes along the natural lash line. Hold, allowing adhesive to dry completely. Do the same to the second eyelash. Both lashes have a perfect fit!
Look at all the different thicknesses.
And wouldn't these be cool for a party?
I saw these and laughed and laughed.  Who wears fake lashes?
Well it was almost halloween so I thought that would be a good time to look like a fool.
I got dressed in black.  Put on my cat costume and the lashes. 
Putting them on were easier than I thought.  Put a little glue around edge.  Let sit to get  a little tacky then line up with edge of eye.  Now I will not lie this was tricky. One they stuck they stuck.  They did not look lopsided but may have been.  Be carefull puting them on.
I was surpised how good and natural they looked.
These pictures were taken after running around the neighborhood wit hte kiddos begging for candy, my makeup is coming off and the lighing is horid but to get the idea of the lashes I will post.
Both Lashes
One on and one off

These were really easy to peel off and you can use them again and again
Now would I use them again?  I can see me putting them on for going out.
Would I buy more?  Probably not. 
They were fun and they do look good but I am just not that into them.  Depends on the girl ;)
***the Kiss Pro Lash Starter Kits was sent to me as a product sample to try.  All opinions herein are truthfull and my own.  ****

Goody Hair Spirals

I received my Beauty VoxBox From Influenster - Whoo hooo for free samples

Ok, on to my opinion.  I have short hair.  It barley will pull back.  I sometimes will pull it back with a small clip but the hair will still drop out here and there and I hate the tightness.

I pulled my hair back and added these two Goody Sping Pins.  They are very sturdy and made of metal.  Yay!  Plastic I seem to break .. like all my clips.  They twisted into where I wanted and kept my hair in plack, you could hardly see the pins .. no more ugly clips!!!

And it stayed all day with out hurting my head. 

i will definately pick up some more of these.   I did not think they would work as good as they did.  They kept my short hair in place so just think what they could do to long hair! 

No more ugly clips ...  Go out and get your Goody Sin Pins NOW!!  ;)

Have you seen some of the great programs I have been getting into lately?
Let me tell you about this one....
I have belonged to them for a while now but they just launched a new site.
It has been totally be remade and they have new ways of rating their members

What Is Influenster

Influenster is a free-to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products

So wait, is this about getting free stuff?
Nope. If you’re here to mooch, this isn't the place for you. Nobody, no matter how high his or her Influenster Score, is guaranteed rewards. Even if you are offered a reward, you can always opt out. The real benefit of membership is access to exclusive content, product reviews, and discussion within a community of tastemakers. Perks are just the icing on the proverbial cake.

I get all the goodies but there is work involved.  I try EVERY product, tell everyone I know about the products and even share any products I get and if coupons are involved those get shared too.

I shout my opinions from my Facebook wall, tweet abotu them, tell all my friends, coworks, family and even strangers.

Then I come on here and write a blog about my expierences with the products.

I can't lie I LOVE getting free stuff but I LOVE sharing my opinions with other people too.   There are many things that I have tried over the years that I pass on to friends and family. 

Word of Mouth advertising is the BEST way.  That way you know if someone tried something and a person's opinion is much better than a TV advertisment by actors that act like they liek something or because a package says so.

Thanks for reading me ramble and gush about influenster and get ready for some product reviews from my last Vox Box I received!!

Love getting my Surprise Box every time it shows up on my door step!!

**** I belong to influenster and receive products to try and give word of mouth advertising.  This in no way influences ;) my opinions on this page all opinions are truthful and my own!****
