I'm Baaaaack! (Plus VoxBox review, part 3)

Hi blogging friends!!  I am back from my short hiatus.  The end of the school year was so busy, but I am officially on summer vacation, and back to blogging in full force.

I've finished trying the rest of the products from my Spring Fever VoxBox from Influenster, and I can't wait to share them with you!  I have three more products to share with you (including today's post), so be on the lookout!


Just to review, here are the products I received (with links to the ones I've already reviewed).
 
NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm
OSIS Rough Rubber
Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes- Peanut Butter

Today, I'm reviewing NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm.  (Please excuse my lousy iPhone photos....)


 
The packaging is cute.  You can't tell from this photo, but it gets even cuter....
 
 
Isn't that adorable??
 
 
There's a better shot without the lid.  I think the little apple in the lip balm is totally adorable!
 
So clearly, I liked the packaging.  The apple scent of this lip balm is also really delicious!  It's not an overwhelming scent, but it's definitely there.  I also really liked that it does have some color to it.  It saves me the trouble of applying lip balm, then lipstick, and then lip gloss.
 
Here are my before and after shots:
 
  
Before
After
               
The first time I wore this was to sing in a local Memorial Day parade.  The only mistake I made was giving my purse to my mom and not keeping it with me.  While the color didn't fade, my lips did start to dry out a bit.  I really needed to reapply.  I have since tried this again by putting on other lip balm first.  That seems to help my lips stay moist for longer. 
 
I will definitely keep using this!
 
 
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
These are my opinions only. I am not compensated by Influenster or NYC New York Color for my thoughts on this product.
 
Also, I'm wondering what time I should set my blogs to go live, and I could use YOUR input.  If you are a regular reader, do you get my posts no matter what time I post them?  I currently schedule my posts to go up at 8 AM EST.  Share your thoughts in the comments!!  Thanks! :)

Since I use Google's Blogger Dashboard, and I subscribe to your posts, they always come up for me on my "news feed" as soon as they go live. : )

"Lip balm, lipstick, then lip gloss" made me giggle a little bit. I'm lucky if I throw on some Burt's Bees chapstick... my lips are usually naked and I don't think they've ever had three layers of stuff on them. : ) But this looks cute on you!

The end of school year is always so crazy! I agree! That lip stuff looks good!
