Influenster Blossom VoxBox 2015

“Long time no see Influenster!” is what I literally said to myself (again!) when I got this in the mail. I was very surprised when I got an email that I qualified for it because it’s been so long! The Influenster Blossom VoxBox 2015 contains various items that is not targeted in any specific department such as beauty or wellness. It’s a mix of things and I’m very excited to cover them all in future posts. Here are the contents of the box:

Influenster Blossom VoxBox 2015

The Nasoya item is happily sitting in the fridge right now and I passed one of the Bear Naked goodies to my husband to snack on. The Clairol Hair Food Root Cleansing Shampoo has been in use for the past few days now. I can tell you as early as now that I’m quite impressed with that one. More details to come in the next few days!

NEW! Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Shades Summer 2015

DIVE INTO SUMMER WITH 7 LIMITED-EDITION SHADES OF SALLY HANSEN MIRACLE GEL™


Swim season is coming, and with it comes Poolside Paradise: seven new shades of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel™. These fresh colors capture the bright hues of summer in the breakthrough Miracle Gel™ formula that has had everyone buzzing since its launch last year!

A revolutionary development in nail color, Miracle Gel™ is the only true two-step, at-home gel manicure with no light needed. Simply apply the Miracle Gel™ color of your choice, then follow with Miracle Gel™ Top Coat. The polish is cured by natural light, so there’s no need for a UV or LED lamp. Enjoy up to 14 days of color and shine, and then remove with regular nail-polish remover. (No soak—no joke!)

Available for a limited time only, the Poolside Paradise collection comprises seven vivid, sunny-day shades:

Sally Hansen Pink-A-Colada

Sweet! This cotton-candy color is as girlie as it gets.

Sally Hansen Life’s A Peach

Not quite neon but far beyond basic, this creamy red-orange is a fashion-girl fave.

Sally Hansen Morning, Sunshine!

This energetic yellow hue is for the woman who wants to be noticed (wallflowers need not apply).

Sally Hansen Dive Bar

Let your manicure make a splash by donning this true cerulean blue.

Sally Hansen Lip Palm

It’s a jungle out there. Be ready for anything with this leafy green tone.

Sally Hansen Rum Punch

Our #1 pedicure pick: a super-saturated, on-trend deep pink.

Sally Hansen Swimsica

The truest teal, this show-stopping shade is practically made for sun-soaked days.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY: The limited-edition Poolside Paradise collection, SRP $9.99, will be available beginning May 2015 at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide.

I’m most excited about Dive Bar and Rum Punch. This is the first time I ever got excited about gel shades. I just never got into them really. What do you think about them?


Sally Hansen Red White & Hue

Hey guys! Today’s post is on a shade released last year from Sally Hansen. It’s one of eight shades from their Color Frenzy line. I actually thought about featuring this today being that it’s President’s Day. The color combo is on the patriotic side and I thought it’s quite fitting. Here’s Sally Hansen Red White & Hue.

Sally Hansen Red White & Hue

Red White & Hue is a glitter shade made up of red, white and blue hex glitter of 2 different sizes suspended in a clear base. The glitter is the non-shiny type or not what one would associate with glitter typically. Formula is beautiful for a glitter shade and it dried pretty fast. The glitter pieces applied pretty evenly, which is a pleasant surprise since glitter shades like this can apply sparse where you may have to end up fishing for some pieces out from the bottle. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

This is definitely a nice one to have from a drugstore brand!

This should be available generally wherever Sally Hansen is retailed.

Sally Hansen Drama Sheen

Hey guys! Today’s post is on a newer shade from Sally Hansen. This actually reminds me of another shade from the same line called Blow Bubbles but a purple version of it. I like this shade better though because the duochrome property is a bit stronger. Here’s Sally Hansen Drama Sheen.

Sally Hansen Drama Sheen

Drama Sheen is a light purple with pinkish lavender shimmer. It looks like a duochrome to me with the pretty flash. As expected, the pretty flash is best observed under direct sunlight. This shade is pretty sheer but buildable. Formula was leaning on the watery side ever so slightly but it dried pretty fast. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Sally Hansen Hypnautical

Hey guys! Today’s the day I have my biometrics appointment in the city. It’s for legal paperwork and stuff. I hope it’s fast since the appointment they gave me is at noon. Lunch time! My husband will be driving me there (cause it’s in the city and I’m a scaredy cat with city driving) and we’ll probably grab some lunch while we’re there. It’s been a while since I featured a Sally Hansen shade so here’s Sally Hansen Hypnautical.

Sally Hansen Hypnautical

Hypnautical is one of their newer shades that I was most excited about. It’s a flakie glitter and I love those! This shade is made up of regular and flakie iridescent glitter in a tinted green base. While it is quite stunning in the bottle, not so much alone on the nails. I thought the green tint would come through more, but sadly no. This is definitely best used other shades, especially darker ones such as black or blue. Formula was pleasant to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

I’ll have to revisit this one again over other dark opaque shades, but at least this shows y’all what it looks like on its own.
