Thank Goodness It’s Friday!
I hope you guys are having a great day today. As for me, I am still recovering from a not-so-nice cold.
This post is about my Influenster Rimmel London voxbox. As usual here is my disclaimer: these products were sent to me by Influenster for the sole purpose of trying them and sharing my opinion.
I received the new Rimmel London Shake It Fresh Mascara and the Matte Lipstick
The Shake It Fresh mascara, according to the rimmel london website, is clump-free, smudge-free and volumizing. The packaging is nice and feels heavy. It comes with a bristle wand which makes it easy to apply.
My verdict – I like this mascara because it is easy to apply and non-clumping and non-smudging. The only con for me is that it is not waterproof. I prefer waterproof mascaras because they work better for me based on the fact that my eyes tear up whenever I apply mascaras and they last longer.
The second product is a matte lipstick
Application: Apply smoothly. It looks a bit ashy on me, but it looks good when paired with a dark brown lip liner. In my case, I pair it with Simma brown from Wet N Wild.
Pigmentation: very pigmented
Quality: Matte finish, smooth and very comfortable to wear. Not sure it is long lasting because I didn’t wear it for a long period of time. It does transfer a bit.
Overall, I love both the mascara and the lipstick. The question is, are they must-haves in anyone’s make up collection? No, but they are good products to try, that is why I do recommend them. Usually mascaras and lipsticks are personal, meaning what works for me may not work for others and vice versa. I’m not sure how much they cost, but I am sure that they don’t cost that much.
That is all for this post guys. Once again, thanks for reading; until next time!
