So again I lag on posting. Please forgive.
As some of you know who follow me on Instagram, I received a VoxBox from Influenster. If you don't know what Inflenster is, check it out here. In short, Influenster invites its most active members to participate in exclusive VoxBox programs where you can receive complimentary products to test and review. Pretty awesome. You should sign up!
Ok. So you guys know me. I was like Mary Kay, not so sure. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the items in the box. I got quite a few goodies for free. See below. I'll review each for you so you can take it or leave it.
Mary Kay® Bronzing Powder - $18 I liked this powder a lot. I am pretty fair so it worked nicely. For someone with a littler more color though it might be a bit on the sheer side. The color was soft and didn't turn orange during the day. It made for a night soft contour also.
Mary Kay® Translucent Loose Powder - Also really liked this translucent powder. i usually use the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder, but this was nice too. It set my makeup and helped keep it fresh throughout the day. For the price of $16 I would say it's worth it.
Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color - Color: Shy Blush $12 - I'm a blush gal. This did not have enough pigment for me. If you really dug into it it was a pretty coral pink. Didn't really last that great on me either. My face eats blush though.
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist- $14 The product is a pretty soft shimmery gold that applied nicely. The product was long wearing and held its color all-day without creasing. I tried wearing it alone and also as a shadow base and liked it both ways.
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush $10 - This brush applied the product nicely and was firm enough to apply cream shadow. It was a bit pokey for a brush that is supposed to be used around the eye area though for $10 I would say go for it.
Mary Kay® Lash Love® Mascara - $15 - Ok. No joke I LOVE THIS MASCARA. I'll post a photo. It has a plastic/rubber brush but it really is nice. It separates the lashes really well but also gives a good amount of volume -for sure a new favorite and highly recommend!!
Mary Kay® Gel Eyeliner with Expandable Brush Applicator in Jet Black - $18 - I was sad about this gel liner. It applies sooo black which is always something I am looking for. It is also super smooth and easy to work with, not to mention you get a TON of product in the jar, BUT it moved around on my eyelid. Not a good look for anyone. I am still holding out and am going to give it another shot (maybe I had an extra oily eye day??)
Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss in Mango Tango - $10 The texture of this gloss is lovely and it wore really nicely. It is not a color I would normally go for and looks a lot more red in the tube - it's really more of a coral. Super pretty! Definitely recommend for those of you who like brighter lips.
Overall, I would say I have misjudged Mary Kay. Definitely will consider restocking my makeup kit with some of these goodies.
If you end up trying any of these, please let me know what you think!
