Hello you lovelies! I’ve recently been introduced to a company called Influenster, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it as I know a good few of you will get involved yourselves and jump aboard the free makeup train. (And hey, it’s a pretty one! 😉 ) Basically, Influenster is a review site, and in exchange for your reviews and being an active member, the company sends out what they call VoxBoxes monthly – sometimes even more often. You also connect your social media accounts so Influenster can see how far your reach is, so a decent reach combined with being an active member gives you a good shot at getting a VoxBox.
Let me talk to you about my very first VoxBox! I had been signed up to the company for a few weeks or so and connected my social medias and answered a good few surveys in order to highten my chances. My box was filled with dark, Halloween themed Rimmel goodies; three nail varnishes, three lip glosses and a mascara!
I am openly a nail varnish hoarder – I just love it! With this being said I tend to steer more towards nude shades and light pastel hues, so I’m really pleased to be branching out with three darker shades. I have a very deep red, a deep purple and matte black shade. (I can’t wait to have these non-stop on my nails throughout October!) The application brushes are really thick so it takes no time to paint your nails, and they dry fairly quickly also. They don’t last quite as long as others I’ve tried but I do use my hands a lot so it’s not a big issue for me.
The mascara I received is just beautiful – actually one of the best I’ve tried in a long time! My only downside is it does come out fairly thick, but it’s so lengthening and I know I’ll be buying it again. The three glosses I received were slightly daunting for me as the darker the lip colour, the more matte the formulation I prefer. I don’t want black to slip all around my face haha! They’re slightly tacky but wear fairly nicely, but I’d definitely keep these to play around with or to wear somewhere you can easily tidy up whenever you need. I’m so glad to own them though as I’ve never tried anything like them before!
Have you tried any of these products? Will you be signing up to Influenster?
