Influenster College VoxBox

I recently received the Influenster College VoxBox for review.

Influenster is described as:

An exclusive online community where tastemakers and trendsetters (such as yourself) come to share the latest and greatest news, places, products, and reviews with each other. 2. The hotspot you just bookmarked on your web browser that turns your social influence into sweet rewards.
Basically, Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly -- they just want to know what's up).
So let's get on with the review!

ImPress Press-On Manicure: $5.99 for colors, $7.99 for patterns

I was really excited when I opened my box to find these! I've been wanting to try them out for awhile. They have a wide range of patterns and colors to choose from, this one is called 'Holla!' Instead of using nail glue, they have a sticky tab on the back. all you have to do is peel the plastic off the bask of each nail and press them on.

I've only had them on for about three days but they are holding up better than I expected. I did not file these nails down at all. My nails are still nubs, so I really like the length but those with longer nails, or who prefer longer nails, probably wouldn't. ImPress nails are meant to last a week, so I can do an update on them later, but even if they don't, I don't mind. So far they have lasted longer than any manicure on my real nails.

NYC New York Color Show Time Glitter Eyeliner Pencil: $2.49 per pencil

This eyeliner pencil looks nice. I don't have much to say about it really. It went on smooth, which was nice (I've had glitter eyeliner that has hurt me before because of the roughness of the glitter). I did find that after being on my eyes for awhile it transferred to above my lids. I don't wear any eyelid primer or anything so I don't know if that makes a difference, but my usual eyeliner doesn't do that. It's nice for the holidays though, and I didn't have glitter all over my face by the end of the day, so that's a plus!

Necco Tropical Wafers: $1.25 each, 424.00 per Box, $37.50 per Tub

Again, not much to say. I've never liked Necco wafers. I did try these and I still don't like them. To me, they taste like the tropical fruit Tums Smoothies.

Pentel EnerGel-X Campaign: $1.90 per Pen

I really like this pen! This might sound weird, but as a kid I always ran to the school supplies isle when we went shopping. I was always wanting to try out new pens and pencils. This writes really smoothly and has a nice grip on it.

Energy Sheets: $5.95 per pack of 10 sheets

My boyfriend instantly wanted to try these when he saw them, so I let him. The packaging is so strange; each strip comes in an individual metallic packet. It says it dissolves instantly on your tongue, which did not appear to be the case for Nick. It just kind of sat on his tongue all the while he was complaining about how terrible they tasted. As for energy, I can't really say. He didn't appear to be any more energetic than normal.

I know this is a little different from my usual posts but I hope you enjoyed this.

These products were sent to me for review. All of the above statements are my own honest opinions.
