As you saw in the video I posted yesterday, I received a complimentary box of items (a "voxbox" from Influenster) to review. If receiving a box of freebies to review sounds like your thing, go head over to Influenster and sign up or click on the badge on my sidebar.
I don't want to write one huge, long, overloaded post reviewing ALL of the items, so I'm going to just review the two Rimmel London cosmetics items in this post. Dividing the products into smaller chunks makes it more manageable.
I received the Oh My Gloss lip color in Poppy, and the ScandalEyes 24-hour Eyeliner in Black.
This isn't something I'd probably ever buy, by the way, mostly because I prefer lipstick over gloss, and also prefer my lip color to have some staying power. But it's not expensive, and it could be nice to layer over a pink or magenta lipstick if you want some extra shine. But overall, it's meh. There is nothing that really makes this stand out from basically every other gloss on the market.
The ScandalEyes 24-hour eyeliner does have some serious staying power. It stayed all day (with the use of Urban Decay's eye primer, which I always use if I wear eye make-up), so it could be that the primer is awesome, or the eyeliner is awesome, or that together they're a takes-no-shit Power Couple. But either way, this is a product I will buy in the future.
My only complaint is that the felt-tip applicator was hard to use. It was hard to control so I ended up with thicker lines than I intended but this will likely be alleviated with practice.
Also, unlike my other long-wearing or waterproof eyeliners, this washes off easily when you wash your face like normal or use eye-makeup-remover. My other eyeliners are basically only coming off with holy water and an exorcism.
Overall, I do like Rimmel London products (here's the link to the Provocalips 16-Hour Lip Color review that I did). You can find them at Target and they're definitely at an affordable price point.
I'll be spacing out the rest of the Influenster Poppy Voxbox reviews so that you're not flooded with them all once. I know I've been doing a lot of product reviews lately, but I'll try to make sure I'm still including outfits of the day and fashion tips! Take care!
