My #univoxbox FINALLY came in a few days ago, after waiting for what seemed like forever. I was massively pumped about this box once I looked at the cheat sheet on Influenster [whoops]. I gave myself a few days to use everything before I reviewed them on here, but now that I have... - here we go.
// Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
I find it hilarious that I'm the absolute lightest shade for this makeup and that it's still the tiniest bit too dark for me. Not much, nothing that powder in a lighter shade can't fix, but enough that I have to take extra time blending it so I don't have a line.
It does help your face stay pretty shine free! It doesn't last all day like it says, but it does last around six hours. [and I have an extremely oily face, so for people with less oil, I'm sure it would last longer].
Goes on nicely. It's a mousse, but it feels dry like a powder.
Has pretty good coverage. Like a 7 out of 10.
It doesn't last all day.
Once it starts to get shiny, the makeup gets kind of cake-y.
// Redrose Real Tea Blackcurrant Raspberry
This stuff is delicious. I'm a huge fan of water enhancers because I can't make myself drink as much water as I should normally, and it was awesome to find another brand that I like. I also love raspberry, so that probably helps.
// Playtex Sport
How convenient that I would need these this week. In any case, I normally use Playtex products and I've never had a problem with them. Same case with these.
// NYC Expert Last Lipstick
I love the color. It definitely lasts. However, the consistency of it makes it look kinda cheap. If you put a little bit on and cover it with gloss, it works. If you put it on by itself, it does a weird thing where it gets lighter the closer to the middle of your lip. It made me feel like I needed to keep putting more on. Odd. For how cheap it actually is though, it's not bad.
// Pilot Acroball Pure White Pen
Yes. Yes. So much yes. I'm always looking for good pens since I write so much [can I hear an amen from English majors?], and this pen is great. It writes well, makes my penmanship better, and the ink is consistent. I love it. I would back this company in a heartbeat.
// Broadway Nails imPRESS Manicures
These are super easy to put on and really cute, but purple isn't really my color. If you have an active lifestyle, as with most things, they're more likely to fall off sooner. I normally keep my nails done with black tips, so this was an interesting change. I liked it, but I probably wouldn't buy them.
Have an opinion on one of these? Leave it in the comments!
And thank you TONS to Influenster! :)
