To Try: Influenster's NYC New York Color VoxBox!

I was selected by Influenster to try out the new NYC New York Color Big Bold line of mascara (Angel Lash) and liquid eyeliner (Big Bold & Precise felt tip liner). I got these products for free to try from Influenster and anyone can sign up for a free account! Let's take a look at these products!
The products fresh in the package! I really like the pictures on the sides to display how each should look when being used.
And here's the card that came in the package explaining what each task will be for the Influenster portion of the trial. Apparently Demi Lovato sponsors this product? Well, she has questionable taste. Each product has a specific promise: the mascara will be bold and light, 7 times more volume with 16 hours of wear and no weight, and the felt liner will have a 2-in-1 felt tip with 10 hour long lasting wear formula. Bold promises, amirite?
The mascara package up close and the back information.
Eyeliner packaging and back information.
Both products out of their packaging. I am a sucker for purple, so I wouldn't hate carrying around this mascara, only the tube is HUGE. I don't think the photo does it justice. The eyeliner is your typical type of container for such a product, nothing special.
Out of 5, I give this mascara a 3.5. It does add a lot of volume in one layer, but once I upped it to 2-3 layers, it got SO clumpy! I had to remove this at least twice with 2-3 layers and once with one layer. I don't get why mascara can be so clumping. I really liked the feel of this on my lashes and it didn't feel heavy, but the clumpiness knocks it down a couple pegs.
Out of 5, I have to give this eyeliner a 1. This stuff sucks! Not only was it streaky when applied to a fresh face, but it was clumpy and clumsy to apply because of this HUMONGOUS tip! Here's the swatch of it on my wrist:
LOOK at that thing! It's so weird! It was like a sharpie on my eyes. On top of this, it had a very weird and chemically smell, something I've never smelled before from any of the other eyeliners I have tried. Yikes! This stuff was a disaster of epic proportions. Needless to say, I am glad this was free to try from Influenster because I would not buy this.

Thanks to Influenster for letting me be part of this trial, even though I didn't care for the eyeliner! And again, I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Check out the hashtag #NYCBigBold on Twitter and Instagram for more reviews and thoughts!


  1. Yikes!!!!! That eyeliner applicator looks insane! Why on Earth would they do that??? You and I have been having some clumpy mascara trials lately. Cool of them to send it to you to try though!

    1. Clumpy mascara is no good. :( It's a shame we've been having bad luck!

  2. Glad you got to try some fun products, but that eyeliner? No. And I love eyeliner! It seems like it would be nearly impossible to apply that using the thin tip of that applicator. Ugh!
    I am waiting for mascara from Influenster, too -- but I got picked to try out Yves St Laurent! I am so excited. :)

    1. You get to try the YSL!? YAY!!! I can't believe I know someone who gets to try it. Congrats. Let me know how you like it, ok?

      I agree, that eyeliner is a hot mess. How on earth could you apply something like that!?
