BEAUTY | Lancôme Monsieur Big VoxBox Review

By Ana Christie - July 12, 2017


*Disclaimer: I received the following items from Influenster and LancomeUS for review:

1. Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara 
2. Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base (Bonus)
3. Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover (Bonus)


So my first #VoxBox came and it contained all the items mentioned above!
I was so excited but also anxious at the same time since it's the first time that I'm given freebies solely intended for my honest review.
So, I took my camera and started taking flat lay photos of the items, then sat down and thought of how and where would I do a photoshoot showing the products in review. (mainly focusing on the mascara).   

First of all, the items are all beauty/make-up products so they need to be used on my face. lol!
Second, make-up/beauty products shine more (showing their unfiltered glow) with natural light, so outdoors is the perfect photoshoot location.  
Third, I need to make sure that I know how to use the products properly (which are very self explanatory) so I can honestly say if they work as their product descriptions say. B

Let's do this!

1.) Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara
-The key word is "big". This mascara is made to deliver big volumized lashes that should last up to 24 hours without flaking, smudging or any touch ups!

**I am not a mascara fan, so I am not really good at using it! Mainly because I don't like how it feels on my lashes and eyes (some irritation experience in the past happened) and I don't feel my lashes really need it. In other words, I am a mascara-dummy, I don't know how to fully incorporate it with my regular make up routine and just not so interested in learning how to. haha!

But I gave this a try! And the first thing I noticed is that the brush is a lot bigger than the regular ones I've seen/tried before. It's ultra-creamy and easily glided on the lashes during application. I tried to be minimal, just because I wasn't aiming for a full blown mascara-filled lashes, but at the same time wanting to give my lashes a just-enough boost. And it worked!
I felt like my lashes looked so much longer, thicker and had more volume! It didn't irritate my eyes. There was no itchy feeling. And it did last long! I wore it all day, for 10 hours, on a very hot weather, but didn't see it smudging or flaking at all.

So, yes it proved its description to be true!
I would recommend this to mascara fanatics. It will not disappoint.


 2.) Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base (Bonus) 
-This is a lash-conditioning mascara primer intended to maximize the results of a mascara - make it pop more and last longer!
It's white in color and has a creamy texture.
I applied this prior to Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara and was a bit unsure if I did it right because it left white streaks on my lashes and made them a little sticky. But I still remained positive and then added the mascara which glided smoothly and after a few strokes, those white streaks were covered by the mascara and my lashes felt less sticky than how they were at first.
I did feel that it prep'd my lashes by making it more smooth and a little shiny prior to the mascara application. 
And like the Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara, it didn't cause any irritation on my eyes.

Is it necessary to use this prior to a mascara?
-I would think so... Like a foundation primer, it does its job by setting a good base for any mascara to set nicely and to last even longer.

3.) Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover
-It's a bi-phase formula eye-make up remover. The lipid phase lifts off eye make up and the water phase refreshes and conditions the skin without a greasy residue. 
This I have used in the past and actually loved; infact I still do. It smells good, it's non-greasy and it removes any type of make up, even the tough ones.





I have sensitive/combination skin type but this didn't irritate my skin although I used it not just on the eyes only but also on the whole face for make up removal.
It's very easy to use (with a cotton ball/wipe) and a small amount goes a long way.
It leaves a a cool and refreshed feeling after use.

This is a must try product.





Here are some clips from the mini photoshoot of me with the products:
