Influenster College VoxBox 2012

My Dear Friends,

I've gotta say, it's a very cool thing - being an Influenster.  You get to write reviews on an incredible variety of products, answer questions consumers (like you) may have, write blog posts and collect a huge variety of badges.  And then there are the perks....like this one.  I got chosen to be a College VoxBox reviewer.

Influenster sent me this box of really cool college-oriented items totally free.  I get to try out each one and give my honest opinions on each item.  I get to share my findings with my readers as well as other Influensters so that they can get an idea of what each product is about.  I think one of my favorite things about Influenster is that the reviews are by actual customers in my age range.  I get to hear what actual people my age think about things!  Super cool, if you ask me.

So, my College VoxBox 2012 consists of these things:  Tropical Necco Wafers, Energy Sheets in Mint Boost, Broadway imPRESS Press On Nails, NYC New York Color Show Time Glitter Eyeliner (Black) & a Pentel Energel-X Pen.

The following is what I thought about each product featured in my VoxBox:

Tropical Necco Wafers - These new treats come in six flavors: banana, lime, mango, passion fruit, coconut & strawberry.  The coconut, lime and banana flavors were pretty good but I truly did not like the passionfruit, mango or strawberry.  I am an avid fan of the original Necco Wafers but I will not be purchasing this new roll. 

Energy Sheets in Mint Boost - The taste was great, akin to a breath freshening strip.  It wasn't too overpowering, it offered a nice, clean taste.  The energy boost was mild but effective.  There were no jitters, no headaches.  I'd definitely buy these. 

Broadway imPRESS Press-On Manicure - As you can tell by the photo below, the pattern I received is pretty loud & wild.  I haven't used these yet as I'm going to save these for a day when the pattern is more appropriate.  However, I have used this brand before and while the nails are slightly flimsy and come off easy...they're supposed to.  They're a temporary manicure!  Those of you expecting long term results need to look elsewhere; those of you who just want a cool style for a temporary amount of time --- these are for you.

NYC New York Color Show Time Glitter Eyeliner (Black) -
Personally, I think NYC needs to tweak their formula just a little as I found the eyeliner to be a bit hard.  I used my curling iron to warm the eyeliner up a bit and it went on without a hitch.  I love the micro-glitter particles; they add a fun sheen to the eyeliner itself.  NYC products are very affordable.  I'd buy this liner to keep in my purse for quick touch-ups.

Pentel of America Energel-X Pen -
I use Pentel pens daily so I was happy to receive another one.  Pentel makes high quality, long lasting products and the Energel-X is no exception.  The gel writes smoothly and does not smear.  My left handed boyfriend liked this pen so much he 'borrowed' it from me (I'm SO not getting it back!).  He loves that he can write with it without having ink all over his hand!
