I recently was given a "Glam VoxBox" of some pretty awesome Mary Kay products to use. I was given a fresh, pretty pink "True Dimensions Lip Stick in Pink Cherie" lipstick, a "Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm", a "Cream Eye Color Application Brush", a "Lash Primer" clear mascara, and a "Lash Love Lengthening" mascara.
My initial thoughts on the lipstick and the eye color were that they were not the usual colors I would choose. I was actually pretty hesitant to use them because I felt they were on the bright side. However, I LOVE them! (And I'm not just saying that...promise!) The pink, while definitely a true pink, is not as bright as I was expecting. It feels so nice on! It's very smooth and moisturizing, and the color lasted for quite a few hours. I'm not really used to wearing a cream eye shadow, and I didn't really think I would like it. Especially because it looked so purple. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to apply it with the application brush (which I LOVE) and on it isn't as purple as in the jar.
The Not As Good
I was really hoping to love the Lash Primer and the mascara, especially since I'm almost out of mine. I was really disappointed to find I didn't really care for either of them. The Lash Primer can be worn alone "for the natural look" or under the mascara for volume, but I didn't find that the Lash Primer made a difference either way for me. I could hardly tell that the Primer was on my lashes, and it was just an added step in my make up routine for under my mascara. As a busy mom I hardly even have 5 minutes for a shower let alone applying an extra step to my mascara. I need it to be quick! (Maybe I didn't apply it correctly?) I did however discover that the Lash Primer makes a really good "brow gel" to hold the fly away eyebrows in place! The mascara seems like it would be a great mascara, but to be honest I hated the skinny, tiny brush. I prefer my mascara brushes to be a little more full...I guess I prefer an overall "volume/lengthening" mascara.
Will I buy It?
Yes to the lipstick, the eye color, and the application brush. No to the mascara, and a maybe to the primer (but would be used as a brow gel). If the mascara had a better brush, I would consider buying it.
