Mary Kay VoxBox from Influenster

 Ermahgerd, guys! I'm stoked to share my second VoxBox today. I got the Mary Kay box and it was full of beauty goodies! There was a lipstick in Rose Cherie, a mascara primer, mascara, and a cream eyeshadow in Violet Storm. I love purple so this was my fave.

When I first tried the lipstick, my initial reaction was, it's... pink. I didn't think it went with my skin tone, but after a blot on a tissue it wasn't bad at all! It was sheer enough to neutralize and I was glad I didn't give up on it. It's full of moisture and I think the more I use it, the more it grows on me. For those with neutral or cool skin tones, it should be fine. It's a pretty rose pink that's not too bright.

Sorry for the red eyes in the first "without primer" pic. My contacts were irritating me that day. The mascara, however wasn't. It's labeled as approved for contact wearers. Funny, because I never would have thought about it. So, that's a plus already! I have rather full lashes naturally (i didn't use anything on my bottom lashes), so I can't say how it does on that end, but boy does it lengthen! I'm more of an au naturel type, so even when glamming it up, false lashes aren't my thing. The primer also says it can be used alone for a natural look.

I'm also using the cream eyeshadow in these pics. I paired it with a gold color I already had. It wears great, lasts all day, and doesn't crease. I will be using this all. the. time. Haha.

Lastly, here are 3 looks using the Mary Kay products. The first is the shadow and mascara only. Second is the all the products I received. Notice the pink lips. This is before blotting to show the true color. Last is just the primer and lipstick, blotted, for a more natural look.

So my overall thoughts are that I love all of these products. I hope you all will give them a try. If you do, let me know how you like them. Thanks for stopping by!

 I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
