Influenster UK Max Factor VoxBox

Influenster concept you have seen springing up across social media sites and blogs lately and having been a US based online community it is now here in the UK. The concept is quite simply those people who have signed up to become members can post reviews of products they’ve tried, as well as being able to try products that they have been sent and you can sign up too.

To take part you simply need to sign up, and fill in some mini questionnaires as well as linking all of your social media profiles which will then give you a ‘social score’ and obviously the more you have, the better your score will be. Once you have completed all of the questionnaires, Influenster UK will then choose those members who qualify for their campaigns and my first campaign is the Influenster UK Max Factor VoxBox.

My first box arrived within a matter of days of singing up and one of the first things you have to do is be willing to share a photo of the products within the box on your social media channels with specific hashtags, fully disclosing that the products were sent free of charge by Influenster to ensure there’s 100% transparency on the origin of the products. All of this is detailed on the Influenster homepage and upon the accompanying leaflet within your box.
Within my first box there are two Max Factor lip products; the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick, the Max Factor Honey Lacquer and some boxes also got the Max Factor Colour Elixir Universal Lip Liner, but this didn't feature in my box.

Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick  – Chilli £7.99
I haven't tried a lipstick from Max factor is quite some time, so it was nice to see a lipstick within my box. I have shade Chilli which is a crimson shade and it has gold flecks within the formula. Max Factor state that the Elixir Formula contains a 60% blend of skin emollients, conditioners and antioxidants including vitamin E, Shea, Avocado and Aloe Butters as well as antioxidant White Tea. The Colour Elixir lipstick works to actively moisturise and smooth the lips.

I didn't think I would like this shade as at a first glance it looks too red for me to wear, however. upon application, it is more of a deep berry red which I can just about get away with wearing and the gold flecks within the formula add lovely light particles to the lips. It glides onto the lips with no fuss and once on the lips, which it coats incredibly well, the pop of colour is really quite something. If Chilli isn't the shade for you, then there are another 16 shades for you to choose from. These lipsticks come packaged within a gold plastic rectangular case which has a clear base so you can see the shade of the lipstick. Priced at £7.99, I think the Colour Elixir formula is really impressive and worth trying if you like your lipstick to be pigment rich, smooth and creamy.

Max Factor Honey Lacquer - Floral Ruby 9.99
I loved the sound of this product before I had tried it. Max Factor claimed it was 3-in-1 Lip Lacquer which has 3 lip benefits in 1 product. The first is the intense colour of a lipstick, followed by the shine of a gloss and then finally the feel of a soft balm.

Within my box I have the shade Floral Ruby, which is not a shade I am comfortable wearing but do appreciate just how stunning it is. Packaged inside an elongated tube with a gold lid and inside the long but narrow doe foot applicator which is perfect. Floral Ruby is the brightest red shade and it is incredibly pigmented, you need no more than a swipe across the lips for a pop of colour. What I like is that the gloss isn't too thick and nor is it sticky or tacky on the lips and the glossy shine is so pretty and perfect for those who are not a fan of the matte trend.

I have loved being able to rediscover Max Factor with these two products and I have since purchased another Lipstick and Honey Lacquer in different shades, so watch this space!

I would love to know if you’ve tried any of these Max Factor lip products?

  10. How weird that a box containing red shades didn't contain the liner?! I got the liner but got nudey pink shades so it'd been better for a red lip xx
