Influenster: Mary Kay Vox Box

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Mary Kay and Influenster.

     A few weeks ago I received my first Influenster Voxbox featuring products from Mary Kay.  I knew I'd be getting free stuff to sample but actually receiving it made me so happy.  Especially because I don't wear a lot of makeup so it's not usually something I want to spend money on.

What was included:

Lash Love Lengthening Mascara ($15.00): I like it, but don't love it.  It definitely doesn't clump which is awesome but it also feels like my lashes don't look significantly different after use.  Besides, if I'm going to use a mascara that isn't waterproof, it's going to be really hard to get me away from my favorite: Benefit's They're Real Mascara.

Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush ($10.00): The brush is meant for use with the cream eye color provided.  It's great-- very soft-- but using it in a cream color just screams to me that it's going to need a lot of washes or it will get goopy.  That's not really part of my 5 minute makeup routine.

Mary Kay Lash Primer ($15.00): Something I could work into my routine.  I didn't notice a huge difference, but sometimes after I remove the previous day's mascara, my lashes can feel a little clumped together (hmm...maybe I should just routinely start taking my makeup off before bed!).  This primer separates and defines them before putting on your mascara.  Although isn't good mascara supposed to do that on it's own?

Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm ($22.00):
This is probably my favorite product in the box.  I have trouble with eye shadow looking too costume-y on me but this one goes on super sheer and can either be applied with your finger or with the brush.  I would consider purchasing, but the price is a little steep for me though for such a little amount of it.

True Dimensions Lip Stick in Pink Cherie ($18.00): I love the texture of this especially since I'm trying to switch from glosses to lipsticks as part of my everyday look, but this color is not meant for someone of my skin tone.  I would purchase this product but definitely in a different color.

Happy Friday everyone!  Kevin and I are going to take on a hike tomorrow and a pool party Sunday.  Can't wait to share the details next week!
