This box contains a good amount of beauty products which I’m excited to try! I have previously owned the Rimmel eyeliner and found it to be long lasting with dark pigmentation. In a prior voxbox, I received a NYC lipstick from the same line but in a different shade and with a matte finish. This lipstick’s shade is a nice dusty rose with a satin finish. These lipsticks are moisturizing and glide on easily, however, they do transfer quickly. I’m eager to test Rimmel’s eye makeup remover and the Ecotools brush, especially since I’m always wearing eyeliner and blowdrying my hair. My family and I tried the Fruit Vines Bites and thought they were tasty but don’t follow through with their claim of being a “soft chewy candy.” The Bites are rather tough and not as soft as other fruit gummies I’ve tried in the past. I can’t wait to test the rest of the products! If you’re interested in joining Influenster just let me know so that I can send you an invite. Peace to the outt!

Incredible Sport Bra By Victoria’s Secret – Review

I was given the opportunity to test out one of the Victoria’s Secret Sport Bra in their model called Incredible complimentary thanks to Influenster. I did not have to pay a single penny for the items I received nor did I pay for shipping. (If you want more information on Influenster, check out my previous post here.) Also, by testing the product and writing a review I am receiving a contest entry. Nevertheless, this does not in any way affect my thoughts on the product so just keep that in mind. If you would like to skip straight to the review then keep scrolling to the fourth paragraph. For those of you who want to stick around and read about my overall experience then lets continue. When I received the final e-mail saying that I qualified, I was insanely excited, actually that is an understatement, I can promise you I looked exactly like this:

The shipping process always takes about a week or so whenever Influenster sends me something because it seems that their offices are relatively far from where I live. I was going crazy, constantly checking my tracking code online and running to the mailbox whenever the mailman would finish passing by. I eventually learned that the mailman passes anywhere from 11 am to 11:30 am…creepy right?…

Incredible Sport Bra, VSX Water Bottle, Measuring Tape, and a “25% off on a single item” coupon.

Anywho, after a week and a half I received this wonderful box filled with my promised Victoria’s Secret goodies. As you can see there was the Incredible Sport Bra, a VSX water bottle, measuring tape, and a 25% OFF coupon. Unfortunately, the coupon had already expired when I received the box but at least my wallet was happy! Anyway, we weren’t aware of which sport bra we were given until we received the box AND some people received socks instead of the water bottle. I was really pleased with the color I received and thankful I got the water bottle instead of the socks because I have a million socks in my drawer. So far everything had a thumbs up but it was time to put everything to the test. So ladies and gentlemen put your hands together for the moment you all have been waiting for, here comes the review! *drum roll*

Just by looking and touching this sport bra, you can tell that it is of magnificent quality. It is made out of nylon, polyester, and elastane making it extremely soft and stretchy. One of the details that I love about the aesthetics of this sport bra is that it has a cushioned adjustable back closure just like a normal bra. This makes the task of putting on and taking off the sport bra a lot easier because it allows you more space to move around and the elastic band that runs underneath the chest becomes looser. Unlike this bra, I always found myself having to struggle to put on my other sport bras because their elastic bands are extremely tight due to their “compression” fit. Trust me when I say those sport bras are a hassle to remove especially when I want to avoid getting deodorant stains all over. Additionally, I really like the inside padding that the Incredible Sport Bra has because it provides so much extra support that other sport bras lack. Many sport bras come only in the sizes S, M, L, however, this sport bra does not. Victoria’s Secret has outdone themselves and allowed this sport bra to run between 32B – 40DDD providing every woman the chance to find her proper size. Since the size is so precise, this sport bra fit perfectly on my body and reduced the amount of “bounce” during my cardio workout, which included running, jumping jacks, and jump rope. Compared to my other sport bras, I would say that the Victoria’s Secret Incredible does a better job at providing support, comfort, and ease of movement. The only issue that I have with this sport bra is that it is quite expensive ranging from $49.50 – $59.50; prices vary depending on the color scheme you prefer. If you can find a good deal for one of these bras when it goes on sale or clearance, or you don’t mind paying full price, I would definitely recommend picking this sport bra up. It really does go above and beyond to provide you with everything you want and need in a sport bra. In addition to their sport bra, I own their VS Sport Headband in black which I personally purchased. I really like that headband because it is really tight so all my baby hair stays in place and the rest of my hair doesn’t get in my face. So if you’re in need of a good headband definitely give them a glance next time you’re at the store. The water bottle I received has a nice decent size that could be perfect to take to the gym or to the park. It holds 24oz and guess what, it’s dishwater safe! The only downside is that the retail price for the water bottle is $19.50, womp womp womp.  
Hope you all enjoyed this review and will check out this sport bra! If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me. Remember to follow me on Instagram & Twitter 🙂
-Until next time my dear followers, Peace to the Out!

Introduction to Influenster

I just wanted to inform you all about this great program that I joined over a year ago called Influenster. Influenster is a completely free online program that allows you to create your own profile, link all your social media, share your interests, and make reviews on all your favorite products and stores. According to the information you provide, they will match you to their upcoming campaigns and send you that respective “voxbox.” These voxboxes may contain a single item or sometimes multiple items complimentary for reviewing purposes. As you post reviews on Influenster and synchronize your social media you will receive an “Impact Score.” Your impact score depends mostly on how many followers you have on all your social media accounts. The more followers you have, the higher your score will be because you essentially have more power to influence those around you. Below is a sample of what your Influenster profile would look like!

influenster

As you can see, there are different badges you can unlock with respects to what you like or that match your lifestyle. The higher your scores are on these badges, the more likely you are to receive a voxbox. Based on your profile you might be pre-selected for a specific campaign and afterwards they will send you a couple of emails that will require you to complete a survey to confirm whether you are a perfect match. If you qualify, Influenster will ship you a box FREE. In order to make this an interactive program, there will be different activities to complete for each item in your box. Sometimes it might be to post a picture on Instagram with the item or just to tweet about your experience using the product. Basically this program just wants your honest opinion on the products they send and help you influence others to check out the products too. If you’re interested, which I mean who wouldn’t be, just leave your email address down below or send me an email at contact@girlwithglam.com so I can send you an invite!
