Get ready for some major selfie overload.
The lovely people at Influenster were kind enough to send me items from Mary Kay's newest spring line! I love playing with makeup, and had so much fun testing out the latest products from Mary Kay. The items that were included in the #MKGlam "Vox Box" include:
Mary Kay® Bronzing Powder in Light-Medium
Mary Kay® Translucent Loose Powder
Mary Kay® Powder Brush
Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush
Mary Kay® Lash Love® Mascara
Mary Kay® Gel Eyeliner with Expandable Brush Applicator in Jet Black
Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss in Mango Tango
Before I began, I put on my normal "base" makeup, including primer, foundation, and concealer.
Here I am, ready to begin!
My next step was putting on the Bronzing Powder in Light-Medium, followed by the Cheek Color in Shy Blush.
The Bronzing Powder was a little darker than I would have chosen for my skin tone, even though it's called "Light-Medium". However, it did blend well into my skin. The Cheek Color comes on a little heavy, so make sure to be very light handed with it!
Next, I put on the Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist, using the Cream Eye Color Brush that was included in the Vox Box.
I typically use powder eye colors, so I was surprised at how creamy this formula was! I was certain that it would crease after a few hours, but as I sit here typing this, it's been 6 hours and my lids are still smooth!
As far as the color goes, it is very well pigmented. I don't understand why it's called "Apricot Twist"?? It is a shimmery gold shade. Perhaps a little more yellow than I would have preferred, but it's a pretty color nonetheless.
The Cream Eye Color Brush is pretty stiff. I prefer a softer brush that is easier to blend with.
The Gel Eye Liner's formula is extremely creamy. Too creamy for my liking. I felt like I got it all over my hands while applying it (with my tiny brush), and came on thicker than I would typically apply it. It smudged very quickly.
Next step was applying the Lash Love Mascara.
The applicator brush had a slight bend it it, which made it very easy to apply!
Overall, I was very pleased with this Mascara. It definitely thickened and lengthened my lashes!
Can you tell which eye I put Lash Love Mascara on? ;)
I ended up putting a double coat on my lashes. Wha-la!
The Translucent Loose Powder came on next! I rarely use Loose Powder, but I put it on using the Powder Brush that came in the box.
I completed the look with NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss in Mango Tango!
My favorite products from Mary Kay were the mascara and the lip gloss. I was impressed by the longevity of the cream eye color, but I think the pigment is a little too yellow for me. I am not a fan of the gel eyeliner or the eyeliner brush.
The finished look! Ready to go to lunch with my husband and hit up some sales at the mall. ;)
Thank you so much for reading!! What are YOUR favorite Mary Kay products? :)
