FAUX PRODUCT REVIEW 30: ENDLESS SUMMER VOXBOX


I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes (so don’t come for me unless I send for you).

My second VoxBox was a pleasant surprise. I was like, OMG today totally sucked but my mailbox was like “girl no it doesn’t, you got a bunch of free stuff!” This campaign is entitled “Endless Summer VoxBox” and includes:

Max Factor’s Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner and Masterpiece Max Mascara 

The unique paddle-shaped tip draws both a dramatic thick line and an elegant thin line create the look you want. A high-impact volumizing mascara creates bold, smooth, sleek lashes with up to four times your bare-lash volume.

I was most excited about these two, who doesn’t need more eyeliner and mascara? I really liked the eyeliner. The design allowed for a better grip, the application was really easy, the tip looks like that of a marker but the formula is great. I went for the “elegant thin line” opposed to the “dramatic thick line.” My eyes are too small for dramatics.

The mascara was very blah. I liked the bristles and it was a clean application but I didn’t see any visible difference. One may see a difference if they prime their eyelashes then use the mascara but that would defeat the purpose.

Numi Organic Tea in Jasmine Green, Golden Tonic and Chocolate Puerh        

Numi Organic Tea is rooted in the principle of creating a healthful, premium product that  nurtures people and honors that planet. The purest, best-tasting organic tea with no GMOs or “natural” flavorings created in a lab.

My picky eater alert went off with these; as a result, I enlisted the help of our residential tea expert (my Little Brother). Per Little Brother, “it’s OK.”

Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Leave-In Conditioner          

Way to Grow leave-in conditioner is infused with Procapil, a breakthrough combination of ingredients that’s been clinically proven to help you grow stronger and longer faster. Way to Grow will moisturize, detangle and smooth hair while building the strength you need for beautiful, healthy hair always.

Another product I’m not going to try, I have Sisterlocks and don’t need any moisture to help me “detangle and smooth my hair.” That would effect the locking process…

Seche Viti Mini and Seche Premeir Colour in Cunning  

The award-winning Seche Vite dry fast coat is specifically formulated to penetrate through the nail lacquer of the base coat-forming a strong, durable finish. Leaves nails silky, strong and resistant to chipping and peeling-delivering an ultra gloss shine. This revolutionary lacquer formula provides lasting colour, exceptional shine, and exceptional quality you would expect from the creators. Available exclusively at Sally Beauty in 24 luxurious shades.

You guys already know I like Seche (Read: Faux Product Review 20: Seche Clear Crystal Base Coat and Faux Product Review 12: Seche Dry Fast Top Coat). In contrast, I’m not to fond of the color they gave me. I’m not really into salmon-colored nail polish. I’ll pray on it…

Iron-Tek Essential Protein 

Iron-Trek Essential Protein’s specialized blend of whey proteins come from American grass-fed cows (no growth hormones). Instantized so that it can be easily mixed without a blender and into your favorite beverage. Crafted for everyday and anytime, an essential part of any sports supplement regimen.

Last and definitely least, this stuff was disgusting. I’m not sure if I used too much or if I shouldn’t have used it at all but I I added it to my morning smoothie and threw the whole thing away. Another product I should’ve passed along to our residential protein expert (my Little Brother).

Just a brief recap, I like the Masterpiece High Precision Liquid Eyeliner and the Seche Vite Dry Fast Coat. I’m donating everything else to the Salvation Army…
