Okay, so... I'm like SUPER late on this, but whatever...

I signed up for Influenster about 2 months ago and the Jolly VoxBox was the first 'campaign' I participated in.

In the Jolly VoxBox, I recieved
​~Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer
~NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow
~Ducklings Mini Rolls Duck Tape
~Puffs Tissues
~Skinny Cow Candy

Here's my CRAPTASTIC unboxing video.

Filmed with a Samsung Galaxy Centura camera -- Not too shabby of footage quality

So, No vocals... I'm not comfortable with my voice on camera to narrate. Trust me, I sound like I have a cold and I went on one HECK of a bender.

Anyway, here's what was in the Jolly VoxBox.


RIMMEL LONDON SHOWOFF LIP LACQUER

I'm not a huge fan of the Rimmel brand. Maybe it's the price that frightens me, but I don't see what the big deal about the fancy brands of cosmetics. Give me a Wet-n-Wild cosmetic and I'm just as happy.
That being said, I'm not entirely sold on Rimmel... The lip color had good coverage, but I didn't care for the color I received. Beige/tan colors don't blend with my skin color that well, at least when it comes to my lips. Maybe if I had received a pinkish/rosy shade, I'd be sold more.

NYC NEW YORK COLOR HD COLOR TRIO EYE SHADOW

Again, The 'Big Brand Name' cosmetics don't impress me. I have YET to actually try this item, so I can't actually give my opinion on it. However, The colors look nice and I'm SURE they'll enhance the brown in my eyes when I do use it!

DUCKLINGS MINI ROLLS DUCT TAPE

I was actually HAPPY to get this! Being handicapped/disabled, I use mobility aids to get around, and on my walker, I use a tray to carry my plates and cups from the table to the coffee pot and/or sink. The one side of the tray started to crack and the Seal-All I used to try repairing it didn't hold for very long. I used the Ducklings Tape to tape the crack back in place. It hasn't moved since.
The adhesive on the tape, even for being a mini roll is AWESOME and it holds well.

PUFFS TISSUES

Again, with the CP I have, I don't always have the best control of my saliva. And in the winter weather elements, this equals to a chapped and/or chafed chin. I'm ALWAYS looking for something to wipe my chin with. These are handy enough to throw into a purse or bag, or even a coat pocket.
The thing I like about these tissues in particular is that they have lotion on them, so even if my chin or lips DO become chafed or chapped, the lotion will soothe them.

SKINNY COW CANDY

You know, I am NOT a health nut by any means. I try to eat healthy, but I do love my sweets. So, I was REALLY excited to get these.
And I have to say I'm impressed. These did NOT taste like a 'diet' treat at all. These were VERY creamy and smooth. If I was on a diet, I wouldn't feel guilty about indulging my sweet tooth.

FINAL VERDICT
I'm very happy with the items received in the Jolly VoxBox, and am impressed with Influenster and the variety of items in their shipments.
