Influenster Mary Kay VoxBox!

I got some goodies from Mary Kay to test and review! Here is my honest opinion of everything I received. It has been a really long time since I have used a Mary Kay makeup product. I do however LOVE their sunscreen for the face, it doesn't clog your pores or leave you feeling greasy. And having oily skin to begin with its hard to find a sunscreen that doesn't play that up!
The package included the Lash Love lengthening mascara in black, cream eye color/concealer brush, lash primer, cream eye color in violet storm, and True Dimensions lip stick in pink cherie. 

I tried out the lash primer by itself to see if it made a difference, and I honestly didn't notice any huge change in my lashes. The next day I tried out everything in the box for a spring time look (will post those pictures soon) I did not use the lash primer under the Lash Love mascara, just so I could see how it ranked on its own. And let me tell you ladies I give that mascara a B+, I'm a mascara snob so not too many mascaras will be rewarded with an A. The cream eye color was fantastic, it didn't crease and stayed put all day. The brush that they included was nothing amazing but it did do the job. The True Dimensions lip stick in Pink Cherie was such a pretty color and really complimented my skin tone. I love the packaging that it comes in, because you have to push the top down in order to remove the lid. This really eliminates the chances of the lid coming off and getting all over the inside of your makeup case inside your purse. The lipstick on the other hand was nothing great. I felt like I was reapplying every few minutes, although the color was really amazing but nothing impossible to match.

So overall I would say that I give this VoxBox a C+ and here are my reasons. The lash primer didn't make any difference with the way my lashes looked on its own or with mascara applied. The lipstick had no lasting power and needing to reapply can get irritating. The brush that it came with is OK, I just feel for $10 you can buy something a little nicer. The Lash Love mascara was really nice and I would really consider repurchasing that product. And lastly the eye shadow, I really do love everything about this eye shadow. The texture, the color, the way it doesn't wear off or crease! The only downside is the price... $22! Yes that is right $22 for a jar of cream eye shadow. I really feel that you can purchase other cream eye shadows with the same characteristics for a fraction of the cost.
