In the interest of reaching my July/August goals, I have been looking for ways to reach out to companies, brands, and products. I found a great site through a fellow blogger called Influenster.
From their website, Influenster is a product discovery platform that guides our members to products that suit their interests and needs, as well as how to use them. We provide crowdsourced opinions on products through our reviews and take it one step further with full-sized product sampling in our exclusive VoxBox campaigns.
You don’t even need to have a blog to sign up! You just must be willing to give your honest reviews on products (which you’ll receive for FREE!) and share them with your Social Media Followers. Super easy…and a lot of fun.
For my first VoxBox, I was really excited to receive a Yves Saint Laurent box with YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer and Perfector. As I mentioned earlier, I received these products free of charge. Hooray!
Even though I haven’t reviewed any beauty products on my blog yet, I know all my readers, including you parents out there, like to look beautiful too. I thought I would show you how the products work, rather than just write a review. This also gives me a chance to work on my “Vlogging” skills (a video blog.)
To be honest, I don’t wear much make-up most days. Between getting up super early with the kids, changing diapers, running errands, and breaking up fights, there’s not much time to have a great beauty routine. However, if I’m going out at night with the ladies or if I have a fundraising event, I want to look my best. These YSL products are perfect for that!
So, here we go…hope you like my Vlog.
And an up close and personal look:

LOVE this!!! I’ve never tried any YSL products because like you, I don’t wear too much makeup day to day and its so expensive however I will have to check this out!!!
I actually didn’t realize how expensive the products were, but they are really, really nice.
Wow! This is a very informative post. Plus I never really thought that influester was like that. Thanks and I am going to join. Great post!
Awesome! Thank you!
You’re a NATURAL!!!! Great job!!!! Loved it and want both for myself. Actually. I think vlogging this was the best idea to showcase it! xo
Thank you so much!
Heather Serra says
Oh my goodness!! I loved your vlog! I thought it was great and I hope you do more of them. I’ve heard really great things about YSL and I love how easy it seemed to go on your skin. Their product usually smells pretty good too. 🙂
Thank you so much! These actually didn’t have any scent, which is good since I have sensitive skin.
You did a great job vloggin. Although the products are expensive they look like they be worth it. Maybe worth the investment if you are not using all the time.
Wow a YSL Influenster, didn’t know such high end products were avaliable. AWESOME! xx
I was pretty excited. Thanks!
Great vlog! I also like Influenster – last one I did they sent me coupons to get free ice cream so I was happy with that!
Nice. Free ice cream is awesome!

Jessica @ Moxie and Mischief says
Awesome idea. I’ll have to check this out!
Liz Jo says
How cool is that, so you just sign up and they send you products that you review on social media?

Yep! I signed up in mid-July and got my first Voxbox a couple weeks later. 🙂
Russ R. says
Love your vlog! 🙂
This is the first time I’ve heard about Influenster and I am checking their website right now. I also signed up and I hope to find it fun, just like you did. I will keep you posted.
Awesome! Thank you!
oooo it’s always nice to get free stuff! I’ve never tried YSL maybe I should treat myself..
Yes, it’s worth the splurge.
GREAT JOB! You’re so brave to do this. I am such a scardie cat!
Ha! Well, thank you. I think you would do great!
I don’t think vlogging is for me. You did a great job! I would have love to receive this Voxbox.
I grew up in strict Catholic girls schools where wearing make up was forbidden. As an adult, I guess I never found a need for it. I guess it is never too late to try! I would also be giving Influenster a look. Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

You’re welcome, and thank you.
Great job on your first vlog! You are a natural!
Awe. Thank you!
Debbie Denny says
I have heard good things on these companies. Looks like they have great products for you to try.
Yes, I was really happy!
How fun! I think I signed up months ago and never followed up. I should check on that…And, way to do a vlog! You did great!
It was so good to hear your voice Shann and you’re so pretty :). I love YSL products – you definitely scored some goodies!! And your vlog was on mark!
Great review hun! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Awe. Thank you so much Cori. I really appreciate it. Hope you’re having a great weekend too!
Sheila @ BrainPowerBoy says
Neat program. I like that they seem to send some high quality products. Thanks for the info! I might have to take a look and see if they offer anything in my niche.
Yes, it seems like a pretty cool site. You can fill in your interests, and I think they will tailor the programs to you.
Lauren Ivy Chiong says
Love it that you ventured into vlogging…I really enjoyed the review and have heard good things about Influenster.
Elizabeth O. says
I love the blur protector! I’ve heard of this site but I haven’t tried joining, I may consider it this time.
Sinziana Romanescu says
Very well written post! I only had a parfume from YSL and was great. They have awesome products but a bit expensive…but if you have the money is worthing.
Influenster is great to work with.
So great! You look so pretty! (well you always do :)) And I need to check out that program as well.
Awe. Thank you! 🙂
I love getting things from Influenster. I even won one of their badge prizes once. It was great.
You got an awesome first VoxBox! Influenster is a really fun site you did an awesome vlog 🙂
Thank you so much!
I’ve never tried any YSL products before. Your vlog was great! I’ve wanted to do a vlog but god I hate how I look on camera. Thank You for sharing!
I wasn’t so sure I would like it either. I almost made my husband retake it, but then I just kept it.
Inspiration Indulgence says
Exciting! I’m totally not a person who splurges on makeup but this is a great idea.
