NYC New York Color Show Time Glitter Eyeliner

This is a new product from NYC! It is the Show Time Glitter Eyeliner. This NYC Eyeliner has glitter in it but it is not too noticeable if you use it on your waterline. This was a concern to me because you don't want to go to class with make up that seems to be for a night out luckily for me that was not the case. The eyeliner did last the whole day and I did not have the usual smearing of the eyeliner like I would have with other products.  You can use it to go out and I read people melt it to get more intensity. You can try layering it with regular eyeliner and you will see the sparkles! If you want to learn more about this or other NYC products visit their site NYC they have great tips on how to wear this and other makeup. There are more colors to choose from:  Showtime Black, Starry Blue Sky, Glitterazzi Brown and Paparazzi Purple. It is $2.49 but prices vary at drugstores and mass merchandisers.Disclaimer; This was provided by the Influenster for review purposes.

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure Review

This was the first time using The Impress Press On Manicure. I received it through the Influenster College Vox Box. It was in a hot pink zebra pattern which I have to say is too wild for my liking but I tried it anyways. They are really simple to apply, you don't need glue etc. I have been eyeing these because I remember Nicole Scherzinger's commercials when they were first introduced. I would definitely buy these again because they are easier to apply than the Sally Hansen Salon effects don't get me wrong I like them but these are easier and cheaper. These are great because I am always in a hurry and I cannot always do my nails like I would like to. They wont last forever but it will buy you some time.You can get a $1 off coupon here! I also saw them at Walmart for $4.49 You can also purchase them through Beauty Online Supply for 50%Off and Free Shipping with Code VoxBox50

Influenster.Com

I recently joined a website called Influenster and it is a place where if you are socially involved (not necessarily a blogger) you can voice your opinion on products. They have different categories in which you can earn a badge according to your lifestyle. You then earn points by commenting, answering questions,  sharing on social media etc. Hopefully if you qualify you will get a chance to receive a VoxBox and this is a box sent for people to come back and review the products inside. I just joined last month and I was luck enough to qualify for one! Each box is themed for example there was a Bridal Box, Beauty Blogger, and the most recent one the College Box which is the one I received this week. Well the reason for this post is to invite anyone who like I said is socially involved on social media (Youtube, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook etc) and if you would like to become a member. You can join Here! The amount of VoxBox they are sending out are increasing each month so make sure t…

VANS x Hello Kitty

Another great collection piece for the Hello Kitty lovers. Vans launched another line featuring these adorable Hello Kitty designs. I love it when they make these collections because I feel like they make a boring or simple piece something you might enjoy wearing. I am not much of a Vans girls or sneakers but my only 2 pairs happen to be from the previous Vans for Hello Kitty Collection. They have added new shoes and apparel for both women and girls. You can purchase your pair online at Sanrio and at stores plus if you buy them this week you get a free Hello Kitty Canvas  tote.

ANTM Cycle 19 Winner

Did everyone see ANTM College Edition Season Finale. Turns out Laura won! To tell you the truth Leila was my favorite but her walk was horrible. I though Kiara was going to win because she has won the most challenges and has improved the most. It was a surprise to me at least anyways congrats to Laura! She looks gorgeous on her pic with Tyra. You can catch the last episode on CWTV.

Product Review: Glass Straws

Hello Everyone,
Today I am going to share with you a great product that I got the chance to review. It is Glass Straws and these are amazing. I always try to find alternative ways to 1. Save Money and 2. Be Eco Friendly. Before I was given the opportunity to review these glass straws I had never heard of them. Even though straws really don't cost much, they still go to waste. I have been writing a post on ways that you can reduce your house's plastic usage and this is one of them (will be posted soon).
I like investing in things that will last and this is one of the things I never thought about. These are great for cocktail drinks, milkshakes, flavored water you name it. It is also a good conversation piece to have when you have guest over. Everyone will be curious to know about them.
For some reason kids love straws and love to bite them so this is great for them and it would solve the problem.  You don't have to waste money, you can just wash them and use them as many tim…
