Influenster #MapleVoxBox Review

I am happy to share my newest venture as a Influenster.  What is Influenster you ask, well it is an online community of social media gurus, trendsetters, and educated/influential consumers.  The site is designed for members to learn about new products/brands and share some of their favourites with other members.  A perk of belonging to Influenster is what they call their VoxBox programs.  These programs offer members complimentary products for them to test and review, which is what we do best.  I was lucky enough to be selected to participate in the #MapleVoxBox which was filled with "Canadian" beauty products and snacks, my two favourites!

I was quite surprised with the products I received and now am finding myself use them on a daily bases!  Some of my favourites were:  1) NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara in Black.  This is by far the best drug store mascara I have ever used… yes better than L'Oreal Voluminous and Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket!  I am even finding it amazing without my usual mascara primer, which is a first.  I absolutely recommend this mascara to anyone looking for long, curled, and overall bold lashes.  2) Skinny Cow Dreamy Clusters and Heavenly Crisp are quick on the go delicious snacks that are both under 120 calories, which is quite shocking when you actually eat them.  I can promise you these do not taste like diet bars, think Turtles and a wafer chocolate bar.  3) NYC Big Bold Gloss in Big City Blush is the perfect mixture of gloss and lip colour.  This none sticky formula left my lips feeling soft, while providing enough pigment for an effortless daytime look or a glammed up evening look.  I am looking forward to trying the other 11 colours.  4) The Montage Jeunesse Clay Spa Face Mask was not my favourite and it wasn't the actual mask I didn't like.  I found the sheet mask part cut way to big and unproportional, which then made it challenging to apply to my face properly.  I found because of this I wasn't able to get the full benefits of the mask.  If this mask is available in cream form I would definitely love to get my hands on it.  

I wasn't too excited about the Ice Breakers because I am already familiar with this product.  Also the imPress Nails Press on Manicure because the pattern was a little too bold for me and unfortunately because of that I probably won't use them (the idea is great, I just really wish it was a solid colour).
