A few of you may have remembered that I received my very first VoxBox from Influenster some time ago. And in that MapleVoxBox I got one NYC New York Color Big Bold Curl Mascara in 855 Extreme Black and one NYC New York Color Big Bold Pumping Lip Gloss in 468 Big City Blush. These products were sent to me for review from Influenster.
How I achieved my Big Bold NYC Look:
For the eyes:
1) I first curled my ever straight/fine/short lashes with an eyelash curler (Shu Uemura). I curled them a good few times.
2) I applied two coats of Big Bold Curl Mascara from the roots to the tip.
3) I would give my lashes one last curl with the eyelash curler.
For the lips:
1) I applied one coat of Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss.
Background on the products (from the packaging/website):
Big Bold Curl Mascara:
-This is a curling mascara that has an oversized curved brush that is meant to `build wonder curves and big bold volume of the sexiest full body lash effect ever.`
-It contains a unique fiber brush that `delivers up to 99% more curl and up to 12X more volume.`
-The `Lash Expand technology` in this brush delivers `quick dry volume and keeps lashes flexible, comfortable never dry or brittle.`
-It is flake-proof and smudge-proof.
-People who have sensitive eyes can use this.
-People who wear contacts can also use this.
Big Bold Plumping Lip Gloss:
-This gives you an `up to four hours shine` and also can give `up to 50% more volume` to your lips.
-The huge applicator gives a `precise and comfortable application.`
Big Bold Curl Mascara:
-During application of the mascara, I didn`t notice any volume increase in my lashes at all. All I noticed was a slight increase in my lash length.
-I find the mascara to be quite clumpy during application and did not give it a smooth and easy feeling when applying.
-I noticed that there was no such hold for my lash curls.
-It flaked during application.
-It was fairly easy to remove.
-The mascara was `heavy` in my opinion, which may be the reason why it weighed down my curls.
-The mascara brush was too big and was difficult to navigate when using it; felt awkward to use.
-I dislike how the brush or mascara tube is unable to stand up properly due to the `unique` shape of the tube.
-Overall, I don`t recommend this mascara to anyone with fine/short/straight lashes like myself.
-I will not be purchasing this product again.
Big Bold Pluming Lip Gloss:
-The was a faint scent; smelt floral like roses? to me.
-The colour is a nice, light rose pink with micro shimmer.
-There was a faint tingle/minty feel when applying.
-Faint plumping was seen.
-Very high gloss shine.
-I disliked how big the applicator/brush was. It contained too much lip gloss when removing it from the tube, which made it difficult to apply in even strokes since there was too much product!
-Texture of the lip gloss is fairly smooth but it is a bit tacky.
-Overall, this is an alright plumping lip gloss that you would get at a drugstore.
The price for both are quite affordable; priced at $4.99 CAD each. You can find these at most drugstores near you.
