I was recently sent a Covergirl Voxbox on behalf of Influenster and Covergirl. I was sent two complimentary full-size products. I posted a quick unboxing video the day it arrived you can view it here. I’d like to thank @influenster and @covergirl for the free products and the reviewing opportunity.
Let me share a bit about Influenster for anyone who isn’t familiar with the website. It’s basically a community you can join for free.
You can review products and learn about new products. You can even ask questions about products you may be interested in but aren’t sure if they would be worthwhile for you to use. When you sign up you create a profile. Once you get that all out of the way you can earn badges through different activities. You can also be selected to test out a vox box. The boxes vary so are physical boxes with full or travel size items. This also depends on the product. Or you can be enlisted to complete a digital vox box. You also conduct short surveys at times to see if you qualify for vox boxes as well. Influenster also has an app as well.
Here’s an example of what your profile may look like. I took a screenshot of my own.
Now that I have that long-winded explanation out of the way lets get back to the topic at hand.
What the box included
The box included two of Covergirl’s latest products.
I will admit that the lipstick color wouldn’t have been a color I would have picked for myself. Then again I shouldn’t complain you can’t beat free right?
The mascara tube is very colorful as you can see the color I was sent was sent the Extreme Black mascara.
It’s easy to open and I liked the wand. The applicator end is a nice size and it seems to be a flexible plastic.
It’s a little hard to tell from the picture but the applicator has a bit of a twisting design to it for easier application.
I applied it to one of my eyes and This was the result
The Peacockflare mascara dried quickly and didn’t seem to clump. I think it held up well to the flare claim. it did give my lashes a nice swooping flare.
The color is noticeable but not too overwhelming. You may have to apply more then one or two coats if you are going for more of a dramatic look.
I found that the mascara wiped off with some cleansing oil. it didn’t leave my lashes sticky or tacky after I removed it.
As I mentioned earlier this wouldn’t have been a color I would have picked. This happened to be #100 Gelebrity. There are a total of 12 shades sold for this product. It’s a basic liquid lipstick. You apply it by gently squeezing the tub until the lipstick feeds into the tip.
For this photo, i was trying to show you how the applicator end was a foam type material and that the lipstick feeds into it via small holes.
This shows you the color a bit better. To me, it’s a mix of a brown and a berry color I think. I usually like berry colored lipsticks but this one was a bit dark for me.
The lipstick applies well and didn’t leave my lips tacky or sticky. I also didn’t think it left them dry either.
Here’s a photo showing you a combination of the Peacockflare mascara and the Melting pout lip color
Here’s a picture I took today(12/6/17) just wearing the lip color For this picture, you can see the lip color looks a little more on the brownish side as opposed to the above picture where it looked a more berry in color. I will admit this may also have to do with the lighting as well.
I found the lipstick wiped off well and it didn’t stain my lips.It also didn’t seem to dry out my lips for the short time I wore it either.
All in all, I think the products worked well. The Peacockflare mascara would be good for daily use or for a special occasion. The Melting Pout lipstick would be great to keep in your makeup bag or purse to use when you’re on the go. The color selection for the lipstick is a bit unique so you will need to find a color that fits you. Thanks to @influenster and @covergirl once again for the free samples and this product review opportunity.
