Today let’s review all the products that came in my Max Factor Arabia Influenster’s VoxBox !
But first things first…

A VoxBox is a box of free, often full-size products that Influenster delivers directly to its members for testing purposes. These products come directly from some of the biggest brands in the country.” – Influenster’s Website
I was so excited when Influenster was launched here in the Middle East, I couldn’t wait to be part of the community!
In box I’ve received came a good range of products, and all of them were full size.
Which I got three of the shades: Green (corrects redness)*, Pink (corrects dark spots)* and Yellow (corrects dark circles)*.
I don’t usually use Green Color Correctors, redness isn’t really one of my concerns, but I still decided to give it a go, I applied on my cheeks where I have a little bit of it.
It has a very thick consistence and it doesn’t blend easily, I tried with a beauty sponge, with a brush and I found out that it’s best using the finger tips, which warms up a little bit of the product helping the blending process, but by the end I think it just made the area where I’ve applied to look very “cakey”.
I usually use Pink Color Correctors on my under eye area to help covering my dark circles, so that’s something I’m used to.
I’m surprised how I’m enjoying to use this shade, the consistency, I feel like, isn’t the same as the green one, it blends so much easier, I’m using it especially on days I’m not going for a full glam type a look, because when I do so… I prefer to use my favorite one, the Becca – Under Eye Brightening Corrector, on the other hand, the Max Factor one costs a fraction of the price and does the job.
It brights up the area, it’s very easy to blend and it doesn’t crease much.
I also blended it using my finger tips, as concealer the Maybelline Fit Me! – 10 Light and for setting powder the Maybelline Fit Me! Loose Finishing Powder – 10 Fair Light:
Well, yellow correctors doesn’t really work for my undertone, but the problem isn’t only the shade, as the green, it has a very thick consistence and it doesn’t blend easily, so again, it just made my under eye area look very “cakey” and it creases badly, even though I’ve used the same concealer and powder for both, Pink and Yellow correctors.
I blended it using my finger tips, as mentioned previously, I find it’s the best way to do so.
Available in 14 different shades, it claims to be a 3 in 1 Foundation (Primer, Concealer and Foundation), it has SPF 20, packaging is made of glass and has a pump, which I very much appreciate.
I used this foundation for one week in a row and I really enjoyed it. It’s a medium to full coverage foundation, has a matte finish and it is long lasting, stays put all day long. I don’t use it as concealer and I do prefer to use a primer underneath.
One thing I find very important to add, remember to remove this foundation very well, because it literally sticks onto your skin, and every time I was a little bit lazy to do the all makeup removal routine, I had breakouts on the following day, but besides that, I think it is a good and “affordable” option.
On the picture, I’m wearing the foundation as primer, foundation and concealer, I applied 3 pumps with a round kabuki brush and perfected it with a beauty sponge and set with powder, and it doesn’t look bad, so I’d definitely use as 3 in 1 again if I had to.
Cool Bronze 97
Well, I’d personally describe it as a “Warm Bronze” and I definitely wouldn’t use it as cream contour, the undertone is way to warm, but I do enjoy using it as Cream Bronzer.
It’s very creamy, it blends easily, which I prefer doing with a duo fiber brush, and it looks very natural on the skin.
True Beige 12
The only way I could use this product was to conceal my brows and to prime my eyelids, it has a very thick consistency and, because of it, creases.
I love this blush, such a beautiful color, blends out beautifully, I even had to get one more in a different shade, Seductive Pink 15 ♥️
I absolutely love this product! ♥️
I got in the shade “Deep Brown”, It’s, for sure, the best brow pencil I’ve tried so far, it’s very precise, not to creamy and not to dry, has great pigmentation, the shade is PERFECT for me, I can’t recommend it enough! I already even bought a backup.
I use it by itself if I’m going for a more “natural look or with a brow powder on top if I’m going for something more dramatic.
When I received it two of the four shades were already broken and the ones left, one is way too warm and the other one too light.
I’ve tried it for the first time on a video with the Brow Shaper underneath and it wasn’t bad, but by itself doesn’t really work for me, as I have way too many sparse areas on my brows and there isn’t enough color payoff for my personal needs. You can get the job done by mixing the two shades, but it takes quite a while for me to achieve an “ok” result.
These eyeshadow palettes are beautiful, love the color range, quite similar to the Urban Decay Naked 2 and Naked 3, check this out:
Great pigmentation, the eyeshadows blend seamless, I’m wearing it non-stop, I just noticed a considerable “kickback”, so if you are going to use the deeper shades you better do the eyes makeup first.
What to say about this eyeliner? It’s very easy to do a wing liner with it because of the precise felt tip, but the product itself… I didn’t really like it.
It isn’t as black as I’d like it to, take quite a while to dry, it doesn’t dry matte and I REALLY don’t like the way it sticks onto my lashes. So, for me, is a no go…
When I opened the package I was already like: “This wand is HUGE, I don’t like it!”
It’s difficult to do a great application, because of the shape/size of it, maybe if your lashes are naturally long, it will work for you, for me it was quite a struggle.
I didn’t notice it smudging or flaking, I was able to remove it easily with a oil based makeup remover, it gives length and volume, but even using a curvex my lashes was still very straight. So, as you can guess, not my favorite mascara.
I hope it was somewhat helpful, I had so much fun trying on the products and reviewing it, find bellow the video with my first impressions and application:
See you on my next post, byeee!
