"INCREDIBLE" Victoria's Secret Sports bra #VSSportBra

***DISCLOSURE: This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria's Secret products to test and review as part of a contest.***
**I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.**
It's been a long time coming. I've been meaning to start working out again to stay healthy and fit. In hopes of toning out some areas. I just haven't had the drive up until the arrival of the INCREDIBLE Victoria's Secret Sport bra. I already began collecting some of the "Sport Bra Lineup" including: Angel, Seamless, and now the Incredible. They all have different functions and supports but the one I will be focusing on for this review will be:
Pants: Knockout Crop pants by Victoria's Secret Sport
Sports bra: INCREDIBLE
Available in sizes: 32-36B-DDD, 38C-DD
Provides Maximum Support for high impact workouts. 

-Concealed wire for cushioned support
-Padded straps & bonded, seamless technology that eliminates irritation
-Super-soft elastic band for comfort & movement
-Cushioned, adjustable back closure

How did the bra hold up during a workout? 
During my recent yoga and arm workout it certainly held up really well. These are not high impact workouts but I felt so comfortable in this sports bra that I forgot that I was even wearing one. With other bras I feel that at times I find myself adjusting straps once I begin to get sweaty or the bra will shift doing certain yoga poses. The INCREDIBLE stayed put. The added padding on the shoulders made this bra feel so comfortable. One thing I must add is that I loved how these workout clothes looked! Not only was I comfortable but I was also confident because of the fit and cuteness of the entire outfit! 
You can be the judge. Here are some photos of me doing some basic yoga poses and my arm session as well. 

Are you going through a #SportBraBreakup with your old bra? 
In regards to price, well i'll buy these when I have coupons =) and I won't regret it. 
As far as comfort goes, i'm completely sold. I want them in all sorts of colors & designs! #VSSportBra  

In a recent visit to the Victoria's Secret store to pick up another Victoria's Secret's Sport Item I decided to pick up another Seamless Sport Bra. The price was $39.50 and I had a 25% off coupon and some Angel Rewards so it came out fairly cheap. 
Available: Small-Large
Medium Support- Mid impact
-Adjustable racerback straps
-Seamless comfort & zoning for support
-Removable padding for support & shape
-Anti-microbial nylon microfiber & spandex fabric for ultimate stretch

Like I said, coupons are your bestfriend at Victoria's Secret and each time you purchase you earn points. I try to shop as fast as I can in Victoria's Secret because I ALWAYS end up with more than I originally came into the store for.

Mary Kay Sun-Kissed #MKGLAM

Back in the days I remember my mom using Mary Kay products and seeing those cute pale pink looking cars driving around town. When I found out that i'd be testing out some products from Mary Kay, I was a little reserved as my memories were of "older" people using those products. I figured if they loved, maybe I would too =). I'm always up for trying new things. Here is a look I posted on instagram @rosemarie627 a few days ago using the products I received in my Mary Kay Sun-Kissed Voxbox:

All products by Mary Kay:

Cream Eye Color- Apricot twist $14 
I normally do not like cream based eyeshadows or blush but this, I like.  It was the normal cream consistency but what I LOVE about this is that it dries quickly making it easy to apply over this cream even better. I have been grabbing this daily since I received it because I am ALWAYS in a rush. This helps to give me some color and glow and it's effortless. The color is more like a peach with bronze. Can be applied using the Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush I mention below.

Lash Love Mascara- I heart Black $15
I personally wear waterproof mascara on a daily basis but I always make an exception for fast drying mascaras. This mascara was fast drying and it applied evenly onto my lashes. It took me 2 coats to get the results I needed. I like plastic wands over brush wands. They always seem to help with the effect I go for which is length, volume, and that lift. This does just all that. 

Gel Eyeliner with expandable brush applicator-  Jet black $18
I really do love gel liners but I always feel like I never have the time to apply it. 
I love that this gel eyeliner came with a brush applicator. It's cute and perfect sized to be placed into a makeup bag. This eyeliner has intense color payoff. My lids always tend to make my eyeliner transfer and it's so annoying! Unfortunately, this did transfer onto my lower lashline especially in the inner corner of my eye.

Mineral Cheek Color- Shy Blush $12
This blush reminds me of NARS Orgasm. It has a peachy pink color with golden shimmer and sheen. There is quite a lot of fall out but it stays on for a good 6 hour day. It has good color payoff and is also quite buildable.

Translucent Loose Powder- $16
I am not the biggest fan of translucent loose powders as they always make my face lighter so I normally opt for tinted powders. If you like translucent powders then this would be for you. It did the job of controlling shine throughout my 8 hour day. I have combination normal to oily skin. I also like the option to close the holes in the packaging. It helps with traveling and transporting makeup. 

Bronzing Powder- Light/Medium $18
Unfortunately, this shade was way too light for me to use as a bronzer. It has alot of shimmer and as a bronzer to give you an added glow. Being that I have oily skin, adding more shimmer on my face is not something that I like to do. 

NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss- Mango Tango $14
It has a nice sweet scent that reminds me of syrup. This lipgloss is not too sticky and the color is beautiful. It is blendable and you really don't need much. 

Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush $10
Used to apply Cream Eye Color- Apricot twist. 

Powder Brush $16
Love the look of this brush. It looks very high-end quality. It has a matte looking brush handle. It's a bit rough on the skin.

My first Influenster Voxbox!

I was pretty excited to find out that I qualified for the JollyVoxbox. Who wouldn't be? About a year and a half ago I signed up for Influenster only to find out that they didn't ship to Hawaii. Since then, they've opened it up to Hawaii residents and I was one of the lucky ones to receive the JollyVoxbox. Being that I was traveling for the holidays it took me a while to upload pictures and review everything. Here it is:
The JollyVoxBox included 5 different items.
Rimmel London Showoff lip lacquer in "Luna"
Color was more of a matte coral. The consistency was not too sticky but just perfect and opaque. You really don't need much. There was a subtle sweet smell to it but nothing obnoxious. I don't own any Rimmel London products so I really didn't know what to expect. Overall, I wouldn't go out and purchase this. 
NYC HD Color Trio eyeshadow in "Long Beach Sands"
I appreciate the fact that this palette is a neutral palette and that I can use this to highlight. It definitely could use a matte color or a black. The colors are shimmery which are perfect for a highlight. There is a taupe, champagne, and cream color. All of the colors have pretty good pigmentation and would go well when paired with an eye base and NYX jumbo pencil. Overall, i'll make use of this for my 8 year old daughter when she has tahitian performance and I want to give her a bit of a glow.
 Skinny Cow divine filled chocolates in Peanut & Butter creme
YUM! These were a complete hit and my kids loved them too. I felt good about eating them too since they have 130 calories. They are creamy and taste like normal chocolate and it holds me over. I've had the wafer chocolates from this brand before and those I am in love with.  Overall, a great item to have as a snack.
 Puffs PLUS lotion tissue pack
I am alread y a HUGE fan of VICK's Puffs tissue so receiving these were pretty exciting. I absolutely hate when I purchase a box of tissues and the tissue it murders my nose. I always have allergies so having a tissue in hand is a must.  These are great because  I wont have to worry about getting sores on my nose.  Overall, impressive and good idea. @Puffs, please come out with VICKS tissue pack.
Mini duckling Zebra pattern
I thought these were so adorable. I was going to use this for my any projects that needed a cute touch to it. Having mini's around will be useful.
