Endless Summer Influenster VoxBox Review

I received these products for free from Influenster for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.

Hey y'all! Okay so if you don't know me (or you haven't picked up on social media), I LOVE fall. Like it's my favorite season hands down. I live for cool weather and honestly am hating how many jobs there are in the south when compared to the north. I don't do heat! But summer still brings some great things with it. First, there's no school! Or if you're a grad student there's no undergrads on campus which means parking is a breeze (insert praise hands). There's so much freedom that comes with summer. Maybe it's all the vacations people take, but summer is the time to get out and explore. And as much as I love my neutrals and fall tones, there's something about rocking a hot pink dress on a hot summer day.

This VoxBox was all about endless summer. While I can't wait for the temperature to drop below 70, the feeling of summer is something I love year-round. Keep reading to see what all I got in my box!

 Woo-hoo! Love getting VoxBoxes from Influenster!

I had never heard of this brand until getting my box. It's sold at Target and is really affordable. Now I wasn't a huge fan of the mascara. It'd be great for a more natural look, but I just didn't get the volume or length I was expecting. But the eyeliner. Y'all! This may be my new favorite liquid liner. It goes on so smooth, has great pigmentation, and stays put all day with no smudging, smearing, or running. I did the ultimate test of running 7 miles with it on and it looked as good as when I put it on that morning!

I've tried other NYM products before and I've always had a great experience with them. This leave-in conditioner made my hair so soft but worked so well at de-tangling my hair. Bonus: it smells so great! This would be great to keep in your beach bag to get rid of the salt water tangles!

I'm usually a fan of protein shakes because they're great for post-run recovery. But I was NOT a fan of this stuff. At least not until I let it sit in the fridge for a while. When they say mix with cold water, they mean COLD water. Not just cold water from the tap. Once it was chilled, it was pretty good! I'm not sure I would use it all the time, but this sample was good!

I've been a HUGE fan of Seche's top coat. It's thick but dries quickly and stays on like a gel. I put it over other brands of polish and it still prevent chips for at least 5 days (that's a long time for a chemist to have chip-free nails!). The color is very vibrant, but I needed two coats for sure. I've had it on all weekend and even with working in the lab, I'm currently chip-free!

I specifically got to try the jasmine green, pu-reh, and tumeric teas. The jasmine green is yummy! It's just got a hint of jasmine which is refreshing. The pu-reh was VERY strong! I needed some sugar because it was so bitter. But it caffeinated me as well as a cup of coffee! The tumeric tea was...interesting. Not bad just interesting. I've never had much exposure to tumeric (#midwestlife) so that may be why I'm just not sure about it. I honestly don't know what it tastes like because I can't place the taste...other than tumeric!

I love getting VoxBoxes because it's so fun to try new things! Have you ever tried any of these products? Are there any you want to try now?
