MKGLAM VOXBOX!

I received my MKGLAM VOXBOX! I have always wanted to try out Mary Kay Cosmetics, but was never lucky enough to get the chance to test any products from them out. When I received this box I was elated to try out all this wonderful makeup! Mary Kay makeup always intrigues me, I thought it was honestly for more adult women, but when I tried out all these pieces, boy was I wrong!

First things first, the packaging of the makeup sent to me was so adorable! Besides the cute chocolate brown and candy pink box clearly labeled Mary Kay, inside was a slew of baby pink tissue with a happy Hello! greeting inside the lid of the box. It is so lovely to see a company that puts a lot of pride into even the handling of their products. As well, came a card explaining all the goodies I got in my VoxBox.

Below are pictures and captions showing you all the great products as well as my honest first impressions!

This is the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango. I love this color! It is great for a nice pop of color but doesn't go on too opaque. I like that it is a lighter lip gloss tint and I don't have to worry about it being to intense. This lipgloss has a nice applicator and finishes nice and glossy without any stickiness.

Here is the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/ Concealer Brush, Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder, and the Mary Kay Powder Brush. To be honest, the brushes have some fallout, but it is minimal. The concealer brush is great for under eye circles and blemishes. As well the loose powder has been amazing for summer when I want to set my foundation and doesn't leave a cakey look. I love to use this with the powder brush included, it gives my skin a nice porcelain soft texture.

This is the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush and the Mary Kay Bronzing Powder. These two products go hand in hand with one another. These by far are my favorite products from the box. Together they remind me of Nars Laguna Bronzer and blush set. They are very pigmented and are perfect for a pretty flush pink and sun-kissed contour.

Here is the Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara in I love Black. Just a coat of this mascara really does lift and separate your lashes without causing them to be clumpy or weighed down. I would definetly compare the quality of this to a higher end mascara and would recommend it for people who want a lengthening mascara!

I can honestly say that receiving this box really has opened my eyes and heart to Mary Kay Cosmetics. I have used and really enjoyed every product I was sent. I have definitely added some of these items such as the blush and translucent powder to my everyday makeup routine items. If you have not checked out their makeup before, I would definitely recommend giving them a try. Their company cares a lot about their customers and show that clearly through their care with packaging, service, and products.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below! Or if you received this box as well let me know which products you liked or have been using the most! As always, Love Pearlsnheels ❀

What’s in my September 2013 Ipsy bag?!

Hey there! Sorry this is very belated, for some reason my bag took forever to come in the mail! I was excited to see what this bag would be like because the sneak peaks were so tempting!

First things first-The card in the inside! These are always fun to look at first because they show you what the theme for the bag is, and for this September month it is classy! And of course the back shows a bunch of coupons, and products that you get in the bag.

wpid-20130918_223959.jpgThen something new! In this month’s bag you get a foldout diagram of Michelle Phan‘s new makeup palette design with different shades and colors, and get a sneak peek into the collection. AND not even counted as a product in the bag, you get a bunch of little sample eyeshadow and blush in the bottom of this fold out! SWEET! I am actually very excited to create a look with this, and post about it! It is an example of her LIFE PALETTE.

wpid-20130918_224046.jpg

Below you can see an exaple of this giant pallete she came up with!

wpid-20130918_224130.jpg

Here is the little diagram below that comes with the fold out! It shows you exactly how to re create her makeup look and what shades to use where. Above you will Β the little sample at the bottom right, these are the colors you get! There is a couple eyeshadow shades and a cheek color to try out a natural makeup look with.

Next, is the bag! BUM BUM BUM! I get so excited each month to see the bags because they are great to have lying around my room to through jewelry or makeup in on the go! This week you get a classy royal blue bag with lace on the outside which is simple adorable!

wpid-20130918_225801.jpg

Below is a picture of the bag and all the goodies that I received! πŸ˜€

The first product I received is the London Butter Nail polish in La Moss. I was so flippin’ excited to get nail polish in this bag, especially this brand because I have never owned a polish from them before and they are pretty pricey! The color I got was a deep blood red color and is so gorgeous for fall I was so happy to get this color that I immediately painted my nails with it in the picture below O.o

Next is this gorgeous Cailyn Lip Tint in BIG APPLE, gosh I remember in a past Ipsy bag I received a purple eyeliner in this brand and I was so excited when I got this lip color as well! I love that they all come with little brushes in the top as well :p

The next product is the Star Looks Black Eyeliner pencil in Obsidian k01. I have already used this and can say I love it. It doesn’t smudge down your eyes throughout the day, and is actually very black pigmented and high quality.

wpid-20130918_225005.jpg

Next is the Nyx Eyeshadow in Morocco. This shadow is OKAY…I will have to give it another chance and try it out on my eyes, but when I swatched it, it took me rubbing my finger 4 times in the shadow to even have color show up…which is strange because their blush is pretty well pigmented and this eyeshadow looks dark so you would think it would show up dark not just light gray shadow. If you guys have any thoughts on this shadow let me know if it worked out better for you?

Next is this Elizabeth Mott, Mascara Sample which I have used and it is actually a really nice mascara! I like the length and thinness of the wand and it did not make my lashes clumpy at all! πŸ™‚

wpid-20130918_225220.jpg

That’s it for the products I got in this month’s Ipsy bag. I was really satisfied with what I got this month, I think it was one of the best bags by far! I am excited to use Michelle’s new makeup and try out the Cailyn lip tint. If you guys love this bag or got different products than I did, let me know how you like them! I love to hear from you guys. Thank you so much for reading and Love Always Pearlsnheels ❀

A Random Mini Haul: Odds and Ends

imageToday I made a little run down over to Target, and Walgreens and just picked up a couple things.

  • My phone case (on the far right) I got off of ebay, but I felt like I needed to include it, it’s just so adorable! :p If you would like to know where I got it let me know πŸ™‚
  • In the middle, Is Simple brand Eye Makeup Remover Liquid from Target. It has a sale sticker on it, it was $8 but I got it for $4.88! I got introduced to this product byΒ triedandtestedblogger, who wrote an amazing review on it, and I thought I would give it a go since I love Simple products. Check back for a a review πŸ™‚
  • To the far left, is Loreal Paris 440 Black Quarts Double Extend Eye Illuminator. I saw this, even though it is meant to enhance brown eyes, thought the gold shimmer mascara end would look amazing. I am really excited to try this mascara, and think it is pretty cool it has a regular mascara on one end and a colored shimmer mascara on the other. I got this for $6 from Walgreens
  • On the top left, I bought the Loreal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow in 337 Endless Sea. I thought this color was gorgeous and would be very pretty for the summer! I have not tried these eye shadows before, but was very excited that they claim to be 24 hour wear! πŸ™‚
  • Lastly, on the top right is the Lip Medex by Blistex. This was just a re-purchase for me, and is the 6th jar of this lip balm I have boughten. I absolutely love the way it feels on my lips! It has a minty tingle and feels so smooth, I definitely recommend this is your lips are feeling a bit sad lately πŸ˜› Β I got this from Walgreens for $3

Sorry that these items are a bit random, but I figured I would share them with you πŸ™‚ If you guys have any questions feel free to leave them, or want me to write reviews on any of these items and I will get back to you!Β Thanks so much for reading and love always Pearlsnheels ❀

Let me know if you guys use white inΒ  your waterline to enhance your eyes, and what makeup products you use! Thanks for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels
