I kindly got sent another Rimmel voxbox from Influenster with a gold, red and glitter theme – perfect for the festive season! You can also read my review on the last box I got sent here which was halloween inspired. Anyway, onto what I thought of the products!
I’m actually a little gutted as I was so damn excited about the gold one and it turned out to be faulty. The applicator is bent half way down meaning it’s almost unusable. I did try my best to fix it and create a look with it but it just looked awful and there was no way I was getting a sharp flick from it either so that’s a huge shame.
As for the black one, I can’t say it was all that great for me as the applicator was a bit too flimsy to get a sharp flick. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I’m more of a user of pen liners and it’s for this reason. This liner would be better for body art or to use as a sort of face paint but personally I wouldn’t repurchase it to use as an eyeliner as it’s just a bit too messy and time consuming to get it to look nice.
I absolutely love receiving nail polishes as I rarely buy them for myself. I’m often disappointed with glitter ones too as I find they don’t layer that well but I found I didn’t even need a coloured base with this one to get a decent coverage which I was thrilled about! I thought the colour was gorgeous for this season too, red and silver compliment each other perfectly.
I received this mascara in my last voxbox too so there’s no point in me writing about it all again but you can check out my thoughts of it in my last post here.
I would use these as just glittery lip toppers to layer on a stronger coloured base. I’d assume the best sort of base to use would be a matte one otherwise it’d all just sort of mix in together so that’s what I decided to use when trying these out. I feel the consistency of the formula is too glossy to use as lip art as it wouldn’t stay in place. If these were more matte and they dried, they’d be more suitable.

These are super cute the design and colours are gorgeous. At first I thought I wouldn’t really use them as i’m not a big fan of fussing around but once I tried one out I must say I think they’re really funky and look awesome on the skin! I do worry that these would rub off and look odd and as I already have tattoos I feel like they’d look a bit weird compared but I actually quite like the contrast. I’d definitely recommend these for a festival or some sort of fancy dress as the metallic reflection on them is gorgeous! They are super cute and perfect for jazzing up an outfit/look with glitter.
Have you received any voxboxes recently or tried any of these products? Which has been your favourite?
