Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
I was so excited when I got the “You’re In!” e-mail from Influenster informing me that I’d be getting the CoverGirl #PeacockFlareStare VoxBox!
Influenster is a website/app that is totally free. After you sign up and complete your profile make sure you connect all of your social media accounts and do some of their short snap surveys and maybe write a few reviews (for any products you’d like). When ever they have one available for you, they’ll send you a pre-survey to fill out then, just keep an eye on your e-mail inbox; a few days later you’ll receive a “You’re In!” e-mail if you qualify.
I had taken one pre-survey and I didn’t qualify for that box for whatever reason (I heard nothing back) but not too long after my first pre-survey I received another pre-survey to fill out, then, a few days after I completed that one…I got the good news!
When I received the box I was to check the box in (let them know I got it) on the app by scanning a bar code that was supposedly on the postcard but I didn’t see it anywhere on there?
Luckily, I was able to check it in manually by sharing a picture of the box on my Facebook and Twitter. I wanted to receive the CoverGirl badge on the app and one of the tasks to get that was to post a before and after picture on my Instagram…so I did it. The second task was to write a review on covergirl.com which I also did…(YES, I GOT THE BADGE!)
I was fortunate to receive two free CoverGirl products in my VoxBox:
CoverGirl Peacock Flare Mascara in Extreme Black
Retail Value: $7.99-$10.49
I really love the bottle that this mascara comes in. The top (handle) has a grip strip so it’s easier to hold onto. The brush is bigger than I prefer and the bristles are very short; I thought I was going to have a tough time but the grip helped me with the precise strokes and the brush separated my lashes well, leaving little to no clumps. I was a bit upset with the under eye smudging after an hour of wearing it and the little flakes that sprinkled on my face while I applied it.
CoverGirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick in Raspberry Gelly #150
Retail Value: $5.99-$8.99
I love love love the color of this lipstick. It was moisturizing not drying and it was easy to apply. It stayed where I put it and didn’t smear or run out of my lip lines. It doesn’t stay on when you drink out of a straw or kiss your boyfriend (or girlfriend) though.
