Hi Loves! Remember my awesome BellaVoxBox
that I received in the mail the other day? I loved going through the makeup products – courtesy of Influenster
and Rimmel by Kate
– this morning and am excited to share with y’all! So pull up a chair, grab a cuppa and let’s gab!
For those who don’t know of Influenster – it is a FREE community of “trendsetters” who can qualify for these amazing VoxBoxes that come filled with complimentary products to test out and review. I signed up this month (14 April 2015) and already received my first VoxBox (The BellaVoxBox) on the 28th of April. Pretty amazing time turn-around! Obviously each time it is different and they make no promises that you will receive a VoxBox each time but how can you not enjoy getting a packet in the mail with such delights?
In the BellaVoxBox, I received 2 Rimmel by Kate
products including this mascara (ScandalEyes
) that I think will do wonders for women with longer and fuller eyelashes than myself, hehe.
The mascara comes with this heavy duty wand and is good for volume and that dramatic “clumpage”. I don’t typically wear mascara because of my Asian non-existent eyelashes but was impressed that after a minimal application you could definitely see the result although the “clumpage” on my eyes resulted in immediate smearing, lol. But if you have longer eyelashes I think this would definitely be worth a try.
Secondly, I received this Rimmel by Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick
. I have previously reviewed the Rimmel by Kate Matte Wine colour here
and tend to go for the brighter colors but as I sit here typing this particular shade is starting to grow on me… The color hue is similar to what I’d describe as nude and champagne. As far as the lipstick itself, I love the fact that it is not too drying but my lips still feel moist. Also, according to the promotional material, it can last up to 8 hours and thus far has lasted me through breakfast (photos were taken AFTER breakfast).
What do you guys think? Is it a keeper for me?
Big thanks to Influenster and Rimmel by Kate for the lovely products and the chance to review them on The Joyous Living! I hope you have enjoyed this read and do let me know if you give the mascara and lipstick a try. xx
