Influenster Victoria Secret Sport Bra Voxbox Review


Incredible by Victoria Secret is one of the many sports bra from the Victoria Secret Sport Bra Lineup. It ranges in sizes such as 32-36 B-DDD and 38C-DD and it also comes in assorted colors. I received this product from Influenster in my regular bra size but I found that the straps could be a bit tighter but it can work since it doesn't slip off my shoulders. Even though this sports bra keeps my boobs in place while working out and it doesn't give my boobs that uni-boob portray, it has a very unique design in the back which will make any girl look sexy. There is also a concealed wire under the boob area for cushioned support which is meant to hold up your boobs while not stifling underneath and keeping it in place while you are active, so no need to be worrying about pushing up your boobs while jumping up and down or doing what ever you do at the gym.

The Incredible Sports Bra gives maximum support and it has a keyhole and racer back design and also a back clasp with three sets of hooks which makes the sports bra adjustable. There are padded straps, padded bands and bonded seamless technology for low irritation. It's made of moisture wick fabric to help keep you cool and dry while you work out and it is much better than the standard cotton sports bra.




Disclosure: I received this product complimentary of Influenster for testing purposes and my post will earn me a contest entry. #VSSportBra #VSSportTester

Influenster Victoria Secret Sport Voxbox

I have been a member of Influenster since December 2013 and this Victoria Secret Sport Voxbox is my third complimentary voxbox from Influenster. I have also been qualified for two virtual voxbox and I am also a brand badge winner.

From the sports bra lineup I received the Incredible by Victoria Secret which retails for $49.50. The sizes of this specific sport bra ranges from 32-36 B-DD and 38 C-DD and it is available in different colors.

I also received a 25% off any single Victoria's Secret Sport item coupon that can be redeemed in store only, but unfortunately it expired on the 9th of June just before I received the voxbox. With the semi-annual sale on the 10th of June there are still many good deals available.

The overall value of this box is $69.00 shipping and taxes not included. I am pleased with the items within my voxbox and I'm happy I got the water bottle instead of the socks.

Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches



ThCoastalScents Revealed 2 Eye Shadow Palette is housed in a slim rectangular shaped cardboard compact. It retails for $19.95 but luckily I snagged it during a 48 hour sale when it was just released for $9.95 without shipping.


The palette features a mixture of 20 neutral eye shadows that varies from mattes and shimmers with sparkly finishes. This palette has a range of pinks, rose gold, cranberries and taupe shades comparing to the first revealed palette that contained gold and bronze.



The eye shadows vary in formula but they both contain fairly warm shades of shadows. The matte shadows are soft, smooth, silky and easy to apply and blend while the shimmers tend to apply more metallic with a bit of a frosty finish. 

Without a primer the matte shade tend to fade and crease but the shimmer didn't fade or crease at all. The pigmentation is excellent and all the shades has a smooth, velvety texture. The eye shadow quality is amazing and the shade range is good for a soft eye or dramatic look.

This sunscreen is formulated by Coola, it is waterproof (80 minutes) and non greasy, it is also lightweight and has a great texture, it has a natural scent more like pina colada. This one ounce sample is for a single body use or it can be used on a designated small area like the face to get more usage.

2. Olive Lips Moisturizing lip Balm
This lip balm is for dry, chapped or cracked lips. It can be used daily or as much as needed. It has a minty rosemary scent with a bit of olive oil scent with it.

3. Pacifica eyeshadow duo
This mineral base eyeshadow goes on silky and smooth, it does not crease, it is lightweight and has a stunning shimmer stubble. The Pacifica eyeshadow duo includes two shades from the Pacifica Mystical Supernatural eye shadow pallete. The lighter shade 'Opal' is an opalescent pinkish whiteperfect for highlighting and creating a natural look. It can also be used on the brow bones, inner eye and as a liner.

4. Pur~lisse pur~moist hydra-balance moisturizer
This is an anti-aging moisturizer. It might not be my favorite moisturizer but i can never say no to a moisturizer, afterall I need it before applying foundation to my face and to help combat dry skin. This moisturizer did not leave me sweaty.

Pur~lisse Moisturizer

5. Coastal Scents Classic Blender Crease Natural
This is a soft tapered natural hair bristle brush that can be used all over the eye area. It allows you to blend eye shadow using a back and forth motion on the eyelid and the crease. the handle of the brush is very sturdy and thick but I find that it sheds alot and having an eye brush that sheds so much is a big no no. This brush can only be identified using the number written on it or by the design of the bristles, it does not have the name identified on it, for e.g. crease brush.

Coastal Scents Classic Blender Crease Natural BR-C-N08
