In my short time using Influenster I have been lucky enough to receive two of their infamous (or should I say instafamous?) Vox Boxes. The last one was full of Bourjois Lipstick (post here) and this box contained Rimmel's best holiday picks including some novelty tattoos. I had no idea what I was getting and have been using the past week to play around with everything and let you know what I think. One of my previous posts featured the stunning nail varnish and you can read that here.

Rimmel London Lip Art Topper in 010, 020, 030 (top to bottom swatches)
This glossy trio of metallic top coats are perfect worn over other lip products to give some high intensity shine or extra dimension. I wish they had shade names, hey Rimmel if you are looking to employ someone to exclusively name your products inbox me, but 010 is the clear high shine top coat that would pair well with anything as it has a stunning multi-dimensional iridescence and makes your lips look super juicy. 020 is a true gold with a more darker hue, pairs well with a nude and 030 is a rich champagne gold, like Champagne Pop in lip gloss form. I like wearing them alone, but they look stunning over everything. The applicator is easy to use and allows precision and the formula isn't sticky or uncomfortable.

The Ink Me Eye and Body Liners claim to be transfer-free, smudge resistant liners with a precise wand and long lasting formula. Personally, I am not a fan of these. They look great when first applied and the wand allows great control but there was no lasting power for me, I found them to smudge easily. The black liner possessed slightly more longevity but the gold disappeared in under two hours. They also have a shiny finish and I prefer a matte, but one positive is they are easy to remove.

Holy shit this mascara is good. It gives my lashes mega-oomph, they are so black, so lifted and very noticeable. It can be easily overdone and before you know it you have tarantula lashes so I recommend gradual building but this can give you a false lash effect like no other. Pleasantly surprised, it is a heavier formula than I am used to but holds a curl and lasts really well throughout the day. No smudging or flakiness. I have had some recent skin issues so I love piling on this mascara to distract from the acne world on my chin. Genuinely surprised by this as I have never felt the urge to try a mascara from Rimmel but for party season and clubbing (not that I do either) this is pretty good. You do have to be careful with it though if overdone you can get clumpy lashes quickly as the bristles are so short, I always wipe the excess mascara on the wand onto a tissue before going onto my lashes and that works well for me. It is also slightly wet so will transfer if you apply it too heavy.

I have already talked about this nail polish and I love the colour more than anything. It is so fun and has the perfect amount of glitter to make it festive without being tacky. The formula demands a top coat or a base coat or even both otherwise it flakes and peels off easily. You need to two coats for full red glitter goodness, but overall a great staple for the winter months as it serves as a great pick me up.

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. I would love to know what you think of Influenster, have you signed up? Have you received any Vox Boxes? I hope your first week of 2018 is going well, come back on Saturday for my Christmas Haul. Don't forget to follow. Take care.

  1. I haven't had any vox boxes. It's a shame about the eyeliner because Rimmel normally do good ones, but the mascara sounds great x

  4. The mascara sounds amazing...I've always found Rimmel to make good mascaras. The lip toppers look great but for me its something I wouldn't use on my lips to be honest. Haha! xxx


  5. I had this box from Influenster, I'm still testing the products but it was lovely to hear what you thought!

  6. Congrats on the Vox Box! The liners look pretty, shame that the lasting power isn't as good.

  7. Those lip toppers look nice! I'm not a big fan of those type of liners either. Just give me a pencil and I'm good!
