XO VoxBox

Hey guys! Long time, no see…With college and work I have had a ton on my plate but figured I would check in with a new box I received from Influenster. I wanted to share what I got, and see what kind of boxes you guys get! If you have not checked the site out, Infuenster is actually one of the better sites for writing makeup reviews and receiving products to test out and share the good, bad, and ugly about them. The nice thing about Influenster is that not only can you write reviews about products you already have at home, you can also answer questions others have about products, or ask questions you have about products before you go out and buy them. Not only do they have makeup and fashion products, but they also have areas about cooking, video games, pet supplies and more.

This month I received the XO VoxBox! I was super excited to get this one, and could not wait to test out some of the goodies inside of it! If you have already used Influenster before, and have gotten their boxes before let me know what has been the best box you have ever got! I would love to see what others have received before 🙂

Here’s a look at what I was sent:

What’s inside: Tide Pods with FebrezeSkinfix Hand Repair CreamColgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-in Whitening PenColgate Optic White Express White 3 oz. Toothpaste, John Frieda Beach Blonde Collection: Shampoo, Conditioner, Sea Salt Spray, and John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment.

Thoughts- I have already played with some products and am loving what I have tried! The Febreze Pods, are really cool! I have never used something like this to do my laundry before. These little pods contain all your laundry liquid in one capsule, and they smell simply amazing. I also have very sensitive skin, and was happy to say after using one on my clothes the scent did not irritate my skin at all. Because my deep love for coffee and what not, my teeth this season have acquired some staining…I was so happy to see that I was getting the Colgate whitening toothbrush and paste. Even after some of uses I can already see a huge improvement in the overall appearance of my smile. I think I am still stuck in winter mode, because when I saw the beach collection from John Frieda I was kinda off put for where I am we still have A LOT of snow. However, I am rally excited to bring on the warm whether with some new hair styling products to try. Overall the whole box was great and honestly has aloud me to try out some products I have not before. On that note, the packaging for the VoxBox was also super cute and very fun to open. Inside they also gave me some coupon codes for the products I received, so I can buy them after I use up the samples which is very nice of them.

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!

This is the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist. This is a beautiful shimmery gold cream eyeshadow. It warms up your lids and gives them a beautiful grecian goddess look.

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 ❤
