NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact:

The primer is a peachy color, and has a nice and creamy consistency. The illuminator is a pearly white, and as creamy as the primer.
I love NYC products, and this palette is no exception. I used the primer and the two gray shadows for a work-appropriate look, and while the shadows did stay on all day, I had to deal with a good amount of creasing, which usually isn't a problem for me.
All the shadows are nicely pigmented, but the dark gray is darker and more opaque than the black.

Bath & Body Works Mini Candles:

I received the Mahogany/Teakwood sample, not a scent I would ever buy. While it's not horrible, the candle does smell like an old man's cologne. The scent is fairly overpowering if you're near it, but thankfully it doesn't travel much or linger.
This VoxBox also came with a $10 off coupon for Bath & Body Works' three-wick candles, which slashes their price just about in half. It's a nice addition, since the candle was a dud for me.

Another item that left me wondering why it was included in a beauty bloggers box. Effervescent powders? Really? It dubiously claims to boost your "...mood, focus and immunity..." It's not something I'd ever take, and went straight into the trash. Another dud.

The Spin Pin retails for $7.29, which I think is a bit high for two spiral bobby pins.
I received the version for light hair, and mine is dark brown. I tried to make this work, but so far, no luck. No matter what I try, it won't hold my hair.

The scent is fairly sweet and heavy, almost overpowering. If the Bath & Body Works candle smells like old man cologne, this is the female version. Not something I'd wear, but it has turned out to be a nice room and fabric deodorizer. Yeah, I'm using body spray for something it wasn't intended for, but the scent is a lot better if it has room to waft and slowly dissipate.
~ Nice range and number of products
~ Full size body spray, not a sample and 1.5 oz sample of hair cream
~ The $10 Bath & Body Works candle coupon is great, about a 50% discount
~ A couple of items I wouldn't have picked for a beauty box: effervescent powder and a scented candle. I can kind of understand the candle, but I'm still puzzled about the powder.
~ Hair cream didn't match my hair type, and hair accessory didn't match my color. I wish there were a way we can set up beauty profiles with the most basic info.
All in all, I love the Influenster program. It's a great way to try new products, and maybe get backups of your faves. You'll get a dud every once in a while, but hey, this box is FREE!!
