When I get emails from Influenster telling me that I have a VoxBox coming my way, I get way more excited than a person should. I get even more excited when I read on to see that it’s going to be makeup. Wahoo! What girl wouldn’t love getting some new facepaint in the mail?
I was sent two products, both from New York Color Cosmetics: NYC Big Bold Angel Lash Mascara and NYC Big Bold & Precise Felt Tip Liner. I’m not mad that these items were sent my way. Not at all.
Admittedly, I was a little nervous about the liner. I haven’t worn eyeliner since college and back then I used to be a little more raccoon-like than I should have been. But hey, we’ve all gone there with eyeliner, right? Right?
I used to also wear a lot of glitter on my eyes back in high school too. So there have been some makeup mishaps that I will never return to. God help us all.
Things that I really liked about these two products:
— the liner has a solid, felt tip. It wasn’t impossible to put on like I remember so many of my old ones being. I didn’t smudge the crap out of my eyes. And the tip was beveled so I could make it as heavy or light as I wanted. I stuck with light.
— the mascara is great. It wasn’t super chunky. It was light. It stayed on all day without flaking. And it was a good, bold black that helped make my eyes pop a little more.
As you can see, I stayed raccoon free. Woot! I actually have been wearing eyeliner (THIS eyeliner too!) since the day it came in the mail. I’m back on the eyeliner train, people! I like the subtle definition it gives my eyes. Especially since I’m really a makeup minimalist and don’t wear much beyond shadow, mascara and a bright red lip from time to time.
So yeah, NYC. You’ve got me. Hook, line, and sinker. Well played.
Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
While I do love free stuff, but that doesn’t stop me from giving an honest review. All opinions are my own. Pinkie swear.
I totally wanted the makeup VoxBox because um hello, that all looks amazing! I was going to try the Benefit liner with the beveled tip, but it's so expensive. When I run out of black liquid liner, I must try that one. I have oily skin like woah, so anything that doesn't contribute to my inevitable racoon eyes is a must.
I was super excited just to get anything. i never know how they fully select people for these boxes. But I was especially excited for it to be makeup because i tend to not branch out too much.
I have no idea either. I was just selected for a hair box and that is the category of "beauty stuff" that I pay the least amount of attention to!
