Swatches – Pearl Maron (left) and Honey Nude (right)
Recently Influenster (a US based gifting/review platform) expanded into the UK and started producing UK exclusive VoxBoxes. A VoxBox is a box filled with full-sized products that are sent out to users of the site randomly. Influenster gift these products in exchange for a review. If you aren’t signed up already, you definitely should! I was lucky enough to be chosen to receive their first VoxBox, which focuses on the lips. As you can probably imagine, I was very excited when it arrived on my doorstep. The Max Factor VoxBox* contains three of the brands most coveted lip products, which when used together create the perfect lip. The Universal Lip Liner*, Colour Elixir Lipstick (Pearl Maron)* and Honey Lacquer (Honey Nude)* were all included in the box (so generous)! Check out my review below to see what I thought of all the products.
Universal Lip Liner – £4.99
So I wasn’t sure if I would like this lip liner, but actually I love it. That fact that its transparent means I can use it with literally any shade of lipstick to achieve a perfect-looking and long-lasting lip look. Isn’t that just great? I had never tried a lip liner of this type before, although I really wish I had (it would have saved me buying so many coloured lip pencils in the past)! This is definitely going to become a staple in my routine. My lipstick doesn’t bleed, feather or smudge at all when wearing this. I can re-shape and define my lips very easily and it keeps the colour fresh on my lips all day.
Your lips seem to shimmer when wearing this lipstick, it looks absolutely stunning. I don’t know if every one of these lipsticks has the same effect, but I love this pearly coral colour, it’s so pretty (and a shade that would suit everyone)! The vibrant colour instantly glides onto the lips with one stroke, no layering up is needed. It’s a formula designed with vitamin E which helps lips keep conditioned. It leaves them beautifully smooth and soft, they never feel dry at all. The imprint on the bullet looks lovely. This extra touch just makes the product seem so much more expensive than it actually is.
Honey Lacquer in Honey Nude – £9.99
The Honey Lacquer is very moisturising on the lips (it feels like a balm) and smells incredible. They sent me the perfect shade too, nudes are my favourite to wear for an everyday look. It’s more of a pinkish/brown type nude, which I personally think look more natural than traditional nude shades. The Honey Lacquer is a super shiny gloss, but has the colour of a lipstick. It’s great for me as my lips tend to get a little dry when wearing lipstick, so this is a superb alternative. The packaging of all the products is so pretty, but I especially love the honey-comb inspired gold top of this lacquer!
Pick up this trio on a 3 for 2 deal at Boots while you still can!
