This is what the box looked like when I first opened it! And there are many more pictures coming soon!

So I recently had the opportunity to try out the Mary Kay influenster VoxBox and was pleasantly surprised when I’d gotten the e-mail inviting me to take the prequalifying survey as it had been over a year since I’ve been invited to a beauty influenster voxbox so the few weeks afterwords I found the box on my doorstep and included were 5 Mary Kay items! Items where lovingly packaged sturdy box and inside were mascara, mascara primer, lavender cream eyeshadow, pink lipstick, and a concealer brush.

The pink lipstick came in a silver container that unlike most lipstick where you pull it apart you actually push you down on the lid to pop the inside cylinder out so I couldn’t help myself from clicking it’s been known pushing it out addend putting it back and forth several times as I was little that fun to play with.

The included lipstick in the shade of Pink Cherie is what I call a barbie pink. That formula is very creamy and easy to apply as well as moisturizing. That color payoff isn’t quite as intense as I would prefer but isn’t too sheer either. And the design of the container will certainly make it more difficult for a lipstick to twist up and get smushed inside the lid in my purse which has happened more than once.

The beautiful lavender cream eyeshadow was very easy to apply.This is the first time I had used to create eyeshadow from Mary Kay and I was pleased that it was very silky feeling yet easy to work with. I would love to, in the future, try more of the Mary Kay cream eyeshadows especially in taupes, browns, bronzes, golds as I wear neutrals and natural shades most often.

I also tried using the concealer brush that came in the box to apply the lavender eyeshadow and found it worked quite well. It works best when I used it to apply the eyeshadow as shadow and as was liner by itself as well as on top of a darker purple color to get a satin finish. The brush itself seems to be well-made and I look forward to getting a lot more use out of it.

Also included were a mascara lash primer and a mascara. Unfortunately, I already have several mascaras currently open and so I prefer not to open a new mascara until I’m ready to use it as mascara dries up fairly quickly and once open to the air can start accumulating bacteria. Thanks to Influenster, Starlooks, and the L’Oreal consumer testing panel I’ve received quite a few mascaras recently and so I actually now have accumulated a stockpile of high-end mascaras that I was looking forward to using the coming months.

I love mascara lash primers as I have fairly short and very sparse lashes. I found lash primers to help coat each individual lash so that mascara makes my lashes even thicker and longer then by just applying mascara alone.

Well I had heard of Mary Kay before and even have a good family friend who has been a rep for them for many years, I haven’t personally used Mary Kay cosmetics myself except for him playing with samples a few times many many years ago. So I’m very glad to finally have had the chance to really get a better feel of Mary Kay and the current cosmetics line. I can definitely say I am interested in trying out more of what Mary Kay has to offer.

Thank you very much to Mary Kay and of course Influenster for choosing me to try out these Mary Kay products.
