Influenster Vox Box The MaryKay Look: Eyes

A few weeks back I joined this awesome website called Influenster .  It's a great way for people to connect & review different products.  From time to time the website will send you items to review, which is so fun!  About 2 or 3 weeks after I joined I got a Vox Box from the company, a Vox Box is a box full of goodies that you need to test out & share your thoughts on.  I was really excited when I got the box because it was filled with Mary Kay products.  My mom has used MaryKay on & off for years, & has always been really happy with their products.  In the Vox Box was a wide variety of things from eye shadow to lipstick.  Today I wore a look using the eye products to work.
(These pictures are from the stock room at work!)
I used the MaryKay Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm ($22.00), the MaryKay Lash Primer ($15.00) & Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush ($10.00), among other products that I use everyday. (I also received mascara, but have yet to try it, as I had just opened a new tube of mascara right before I got the box, so when I am done with that tube I am going to try the MaryKay one & blog about it!)

I applied the eyeshadow to my eyelids (& a little above) after layering on a few pale brown/gold shadows from brow to lash line.  The color went on really well, it was definitely made to layer, so a little gives a sheer wash of color, while a lot gives a darker pigmented color.  Overall I was very happy with the application & color, I didn't apply a ton because I was heading to work so I was going for a more natural look, but I would like to try it for a smokey eye when I am going out too.  The shadow blended really well with the other shadows I had put on, I was a little apprehensive because I don't typically use cream shadows, but I was pleasantly surprised!  I would highly recommend this shadow to anyone, & am interested in purchasing it in other colors, which there are a lot of.

I had used the lash primer before today & am totally obsessed with it!  I have a problem with mascara coming off my bottom lashes & causing a 'raccoon eye' look under my eyes, but when I use this that does not happen.  I am SO excited about this, it has been a problem for years & after trying countless solutions I am very happy to have found one that works (finally!).  I feel like the lash primer allows the mascara to better adhere to lashes, I apply mine & wait a few minutes, usually doing other makeup things, & then apply my mascara.  I have full intentions of purchasing this when I use it up, & would suggest it to anyone & everyone!! (Seriously go out & buy this!)

I used this to apply concealer under my eyes and was happy with the application.  It gave me all the coverage I wanted, & allowed the concealer to go on evenly.  I am going to clean the brush & try it with the cream eye shadow to see how it works with that.  This brush is great & did its job well!

Here are the rest of the Vox Box goodies:

I can't wait to try the lipstick & mascara, & will report to all of you on that.  Have you ever tried MaryKay products?  Which are your favorite?

* I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
