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 ❤

The Versatile Blogger Nominee! Thank you so much! :)

Hello lovies! I am so excited to say I was nominated for The Versatile Blogger award by BeccaBear & The Beauty Bachelorette!  I am so excited and grateful that I was thought of for this award! 🙂

vba

  • The rules are that you must post the award, and who nominated you for it on the post! 🙂
  • You have to give 15 awards to 15 other bloggers that really deserve to receive it!
  • Leave them a comment on their page to let them know that they have been nominated for this award! :0
  • Then post 7 Amazing things about yourself, what makes you and your blog special! :p

So I am going to entertain you with 7 things about myself? Well this will be hard…My life, as a 20 year old, hasn’t had any mind blowing, interesting, things happen in it! :p

1) I am 20, and was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis when I was 18. Haha, most interesting things in my life are a bummer! haha whatever…I was on birth control for a year and it gave me this condition. The Depo Provera shot gave me Arthritis for life, fun stuff :0 So…I pretty much feel like I am a 90 old lady all the time.

2) Apart from being an avid beauty and makeup obsessor, I am a full time student and work 2 jobs! Let’s just say I am a busy girl! I go to school full time for Graphic Design. My dream is to be a graphic designer for the cosmetic industry one day. This means I want to become the person who designs all the makeup packaging design and creates the advertisements…I would kill to work for Benefit or Urban Decay. Life Dream for real. My other two jobs…I am a waitress for an Italian restaurant, and a pharmaceutical technician….random right?!

3) I have a tabby cat named Meatball. Of course, to me, she is the best cat in the world. When she was a kitten, and I first got her, her name was Bella for beautiful. Then she rounded out and became an almost 30 pound cat, then meatball just suited her lol

4) I am a TV show junkie. Although I love movies just as much as anyone, I get addicted to series! Feel free to chime in if any of these are your favorites! I am obsessed and watching/finished Spartacus, Game of Thrones, Dexter, Homeland, Bourgeois, Dr. Who, Catfish, Teen Mom, Bar Rescue…such a random line up, and there are many more! :0 haha I may have a problem…

5) Music…I am obsessed with the oldies…or older considered music. May favorites include Bob Dylan (got to even see him in concert),  Janis Joplin, Elvis, and Johnny Cash. Something about the quality of music, and the lyrics just really intrigues and interests me. I even have the lyrics to the Johnny Cash song I Walk The Line lyrics tattooed on my ribcage. Which brings me to tattoos and piercings…I have only 2 tattoos, wanting more, and 12 piercings.

6) I am obsessed with Hayao Miyazaki directed movies. I saw the first on Totoro when I was little, and have been in love with them ever since. As an artist, the illustration and storyline really caught my eye. The movies are really well thought out and high quality. As well they are really sweet and incredible, I love the characters and settings  in each movie ❤ Some of my favorites are Kiki’s Delivery Service and Howl’s Moving Castle!

7) I am a little bit of a boy at heart…Trust me, most of the time I am painting my nails and putting makeup on for hours. But a large part of my life and growing up was as if I was a boy :p Haha, I had brothers growing up and we spent most of our time instead of dressing up, playing Lincoln logs and legos. We learned and love to fish, hunt, and play video games. I do all of these to this day, I am obsessed with Skyrim, love to fish and hunt/eat animals, and have started long boarding with my boyfriend. I guess I am just a dolled up tom boy :p

Sorry for my super random list of interesting things…this is just what my life is made up of I guess 🙂

Here are the amazing bloggers that I have chosen to nominate, you all are wonderful bloggers and deserve it! 🙂 CHECK THESE GUYS OUT!

Thank you guys so much for nominating me, I feel so lucky, and really appreciate it! 🙂 ❤

Love Pearlsnheels
