Vampy Halloween Voxbox From Influenster!

Vampy Halloween Voxbox From Influenster!

Hey everyone!

I luckily got chosen to receive the Halloween voxbox for free from Influenster containing Rita Ora’s ‘Shades of Black’ Rimmel products and seeing as Halloween is creeping up on us I thought I’d do a review of the products I received in the box and try and create some vampy looks with them as I haven’t put a lot of makeup on the blog recently!

For anyone that doesn’t know, Influenster is a community site where you can make an account and review products to help other people decide whether to buy them or not, it covers everything from food to beauty to stationery and depending on what kind of products and how much you review will determine your likelihood of receiving a box and what sorts of products will be in it. Of course there are Ts&Cs that come with receiving products but they’re easy to understand and follow. You can find out more by heading over to their website or downloading the app!

Anyway, onto my thoughts about the products!

Oh My Gloss Lip Gloss in shades Moonlight, Rita’s Black & Desire // £4.00 each
On first look, I was so excited about these as the colours are so gorgeous and right up my street as I love dark lips, especially at this time of year but I’ve got to say I’m really not sold on the formula or finish of “Rita’s Black”. It applies really smoothly due to it being gloss but as soon as you purse your lips together, it tends to rub off in the middle so I can’t imagine it being long wearing at all and it’s quite a patchy coverage. I’m quite a fan of “Desire”, the colour is rich and really quite long lasting for a gloss, I’ve worn it a few times and have quite enjoyed it as something different to try. As for “Moonlight”, it edges more towards Desire pigment and formula-wise but the colour doesn’t seem to suit me that well unfortunately!

The glossy finish is definitely good for halloween looks as it’s a bit different and gives more of a shiny and sticky look but for day to day wear, the finish is not something I would personally wear ALL the time.

Wonderfully Real Mascara in Extra Black // £7.99

I really like the wand on this mascara although it isn’t that similar to my trusty old Lash Sensational, I would rather it was a little curved though just so it’d get into the corners of the lashes a bit easier to make it quicker to use. I also love the fact you don’t have to use a lot of product or many layers to get quite an effective look meaning I think it’ll last quite a long time!

It doesn’t flake or smudge but also wipes off easily with a makeup wipe. I’m really impressed with this mascara personally and would buy it myself.

Nail Varnish in shades Darkest Desires, Matte Black & Midnight Ting // £3.00 each
I’ll be the first to admit I’m beyond awful at nail painting, I just don’t have the patience or a steady hand for it so I just don’t tend to wear it unless someone else does them for me and even then I bite and pick my nails so it all comes off super quickly anyway! These would be the kinds of colours I’d wear day to day though.

L to R: Matte black, Darkest Desires, Midnight Ting.

They all give a really nice finish and are pretty long wearing, I’ve had ones where they chip within a few hours before and these seem to last pretty well for at least a few days, the matte black is the least long-wearing out of the three though. I was also pleasantly surprised because they dry really quickly creating minimal smudging which is great for clumsy me. The only thing I would say is that the application brush is a bit wide for my liking, it’d be no good for people with thin nails and you can’t get down into the corners without getting it onto your skin which just causes a bit of a faff of cleaning them up after.

Have you received a voxbox before? What are your must have products for halloween looks?

    I wouldn’t use the glosses because I hate lipglosses anyway, they really suit you so it’s a shame the formula isn’t quite as good as it could be! I love the nail varnishes colours, Rimmel nail varnishes are amazing x

      I don’t think I’ve actually tried anything Rimmel before receiving this box so it was a nice surprise! I’ll deffo wear the red gloss more often as I hated glosses before! X

    I really like the shade desire, but lipgloss is defo not for me. Also I’ve never had a voxbox, fingers crossed one day I do. Also fingers crossed the next one is ace for you x

    I’ve filled out my address twice on Influenster but not received anything yet, and I’m not going to lie, it’s a little heartbreaking! ???‍♀️ That mascara is crazy though, your lashes look incredibly long! I don’t tend to wear mascara often because it really hurts my eyes if I sleep with even the tiniest amount on, but if this comes off easy, it might be the one for me.. ?

    I love the sound of those lip glosses, just a shame the formula wasn’t 100%. I’m signed up to Influenster and been shortlisted for my first box, got my fingers crossed! Great look at what you get in the Halloween one ??

    I loved the looks. Dark glossy are quite chic but for night look. I would use them more than once to go out. I love the nail colors!!! Simply so Fall time ???

    Ah what a fab box to receive for Halloween!? This would have fitted perfectly for me as I’m going to a Halloween party this weekend and I would have used the black lipstick and nail varnish! Love the looks you’ve created xx

    I’m liking my gloss recently but I normally go for softer colours just in case it bleeds or smudges. The nail polishes look amazing though. X

      I’ve never been into them but I definitely think I’ll wear the red more often! X

    This sounds amazing not a massive fan of gloss but you look stunning in them! And you pull off a black lip so we’ll! X

      Thank you! I wasn’t either but I actually really like the red 🙂 X

    I haven’t worn anything glossy on my lips in ages! I’m not too sure about the blue shade, I don’t think I could pull off the black one either. You looked great though! Too bad the black one isn’t too good. I love the nail varnishes as well! These are some great products for Halloween.

    Woow! These products are amazing! I didn’t even know Rita Ora came out with a new range. I loved her range of nail polishes! They were soo pretty colours. Some lovely summer shades, these are some lovely autumn as well as Halloween colours! Perfect for your Halloween costumes.

      No I didn’t too until I received this box! I was really glad to have received it though as dark colours are more my thing! X

  13. 26th October 2017 / 7:51 pm

    Wowza those glosses look really cool!! I can see them being cool for a makeup look, but similarly I doubt I’d wear it on the regular. That mascara looks out of this world tho!!

    The shade Desire looks amazing on you! I think it’s my favourite out of the three. Rimmel nail polishes are amazing, they’re the only ones I used at one point but now I’m mainly using Essence since they’re only 2€ each :)x
