What is Influenster?

What is Influenster?

 Simple, it is a invitation only free monthly subscription site. It closes the gap between brands and potential consumers. As a consumer you are called a "Trendsetter". A trendsetter is someone who influences others.

Influenster is a social media online community that gathers "Tastemakers" and "Trendsetters" alike. You share your opinions and experiences with products. Active members receive exclusive deals, promotions, and swag,

But, in order to receive all these goodies you have to complete surveys and different tasks with videos, reviews, and other social media.

Remember, it is not guaranteed you will receive a box each month. These are based on scores of how active you are on the site.

You will receive a email when you qualify for a box. Each box is always different.

As a  Influenster member I have learned if you are a home body it will force you to jump out of your comfort zone.

I would like to add before I close this post. They recently have gone through a website overhaul. I like it a lot but I do still have a little trouble getting around on the site. It is very eye appealing though.


Influenster is pretty much a cool survey site with the potentials of testing out a product. And being the voice for consumers. Letting know brands what they like and dislike, what they should change and etc. Because businesses are always looking to improve their product and services.

All in all I totally like this opportunity. I have been looking for websites like this for centuries. And I will say this is the best one, although you don't receive money you receive products in exchange for your opinion.

New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

Dark Shadows await you my lord. W/ Swatches.

Recently, I had received my first VoxBox from Influenster. One of the items was a limited edition eyeshadow from NYC New York Color. The all in one kit named Dark Shadows features 4 shades of slight metallic shimmer of grays, illuminator, and primer. It is a go-to all in one kit to make the perfect smokey eye. The retail cost is $4.99. This cosmetic company always offers you the latest cosmetics on trend at affordable prices that can be purchased at any drugstore and other local shops.

These are quite pigmented. And are pretty much true to color. When you add the primer and a base the colors are sure to pop!  The first bottom shade is not a true white but more of an offwhite with a hint of gray. The second color is a true silver. The third color is a very similar to the crayola gray but a little deeper. And top is a ashy charcoal. The primer is flesh colored and applies sorta whitish on the skin it barely disappears. The illuminator is just a creamier base of the first shade.

Below are swatches .

All in all. I really like this eyeshadow and will gladly spend $5 for it.

P.S. My apologies. This is my first review. They will get better as practice makes perfect! Also, im a beginner in the cosmetic industry.
