I have been so lucky to be one of the first to receive the UK’s first Vox Box as part of Influenster. This one was with Max Factor and focusing on the lips.
If you haven’t heard about Influenster then I will explain it.
Influenster is a website that offers members (and anyone can join) to offer their opinion on products that they buy regularly.
The more followers you have across your social media the higher your social score.
One of the perks is that you can be selected by their different partners to receive a sample box of their products to try and review, called Vox Box’s.
So, when I received the Max Factor Vox Box I was really excited.
Firstly, I don’t have any of the products in my collection, strangely, and I have also been really excited to try one of the Honey Lacquers.
When I received the box I hurriedly opened it and I saw 3 products, the lipstick, the honey lacquer and the lip liner were all shining up at me ‘Try me, Try me’ they were calling.
Admittedly, all the shades were not ones I would choose but I was pleasantly surprised.
The Colour Elixir Lipstick in the shade Raisin has shimmer to it and although I would never choose a shimmer lipstick (it’s so 90s isn’t it?) but I shouldn’t be so quick to decide on this as I think this actually looks really pretty on the lips.
This looks really natural on me, a lovely pinky purply nude with a shimmer that isn’t glittery. The texture is nice and smooth but it’s not a massively over pigmented colour and can be layered really nice.
The Max Factor Colour Elixir Universal Lipliner was really the biggest let down for me. It’s like a hard silicone based lip primer. I don’t like the texture at all and it really doesn’t work for me. I understand the concept but I don’t feel it works for me.
The final thing, the Max Factor Honey Lacquer in the shade Indulgent Coral. This is, again, not a colour I would have chosen, and yet again, total surprise. I would definitely use this more in the summer months but it has given me the push to buy other colours as I really loved the texture.
Such a lovely smooth and easy lip gloss, not overly sticky but not gloss that doesn’t last either. Definitely a fantastic balance.
The colour is quite opaque but without being messy. It’s almost rosey toned rather than too coral and I quite like it. It turned out to be a lovely shade on my lips. Again, a total surprise.
I really love this formula and I am shocked that not more beauty bloggers aren’t talking about this product!
So what do you think to the three products? What do you think to Influenster?

I hope this is the start of more vox boxes as I have seen some people now receiving boxes full of lipsticks and quite frankly this is my idea of heaven!
Some nice colours, I haven’t used Max Factor personally in a good number in years but I am liking these lip products x
Aw well done for being chosen to review the box. I really love the sound of the lippie and it looks gorgeous on you x
This sounds like a really fun way to try out new products!

Unfortunately I don’t use MaxFactor makeup but that lip shade suits you perfectly!
I’ve not heard of Influenster before, I will take a look! These shades look lovely on you! Especiallyvthe raisin shade
Ooh I love the colour of raisin! I know why you mean – shimmer poppies do shout 90s. But I still feel so drawn in! I love a bit of glitter x
This is a nice review and I’m sure women will love trying this out.
