“I Do” VoxBox | UNBOXING

Not long ago, someone suggested that I create an account on Influenster.com  – and oh my gosh, I am SO glad that I did!

What is Influenster? “Influenster is a community for social media ‘hotshots’ to share news, products, and reviews”

Aside from the fun I find in reviewing products and earning “badges” on the site – I’ve been given a ton of opportunities to be sent free items for review! I’ve passed on quite a few, because I want to be sure that the types of items I agree to review are products I may actually use. Just last week, I qualified for one of their fun campaigns and I received my first VoxBox!

Nude, but not so naked lips

I’ve had an obsession with brown/nude lips lately and have been picking up a ton of different products to achieve the look I’m craving! I’m really happy with what I found and wanted to share 4 of my favorites with you:

1) NYC City Proof “Gold With Me” 460:

I picked this up at CVS for $2-$3. It goes on very light…as in white light, not sheer light, and has a ton of shimmer

2) NARS Female Trouble:

My friend Nikki worked at Sephora, and recently moved out of the country. Before she left she gave me a huge (seriously, HUGE) bag of products and this gloss was in it! It goes on as a deep brown shade that appears with a hint of pink/red. I love it!

3) NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain Never Ending Nude 492

This I snagged at CVS for $4-$6. I love lip stains! This shade goes great under all of the glosses/sticks 🙂

4) Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick/Rosseto

Another CVS find for about $7? Great lipstick! A true nude shade

Swatches:

L to R: NYC Gold With Me, NARS, NYC Never Ending Nude, Rimmel London

I’ve been using these products religiously for the last couple of weeks. I recently Instagram-ed this pictures of the NARS gloss:

This lip is actually the NYC Stain with the NARS on top! I loved the combo!
This lip is the NYC stain, with the Rimmel lipstick on top, and a light coat of the NYC gloss

I really like all of these products! I’d have to say that my absolute favorites are the Rimmel Lipstick and the NARS gloss. The NYC gloss is probably my least favorite…there’s a little too much shimmer for me. The good news is that most of them are definitely affordable and can be found in nearly any drug or beauty store.

Let me know if you have a favorite nude lip product!
