When I received the MaryKay voxbox I didn't even know it shipped yet, so it was a surprise! I was kind of disappointing that the box was crushed a bit, but that's the postal service not MaryKay or Influenster. I immediately opened the box. At first glance I have to say I am impressed by the presentation. There were 5 full size products inside. Each were in individual boxes and the brush came in a case. Very cute and classy. There was also a product card, a giveaway opportunity and a MaryKay catalog.
What was inside:
- MaryKay Lash Love Lengthening (I <3 Black) $15.00
* LASHilious! Long. Strong. Seriously separated lashes.
- MaryKay Cream Eyecolor/Concealer Brush $10.00
* The perfect brush for applying any cream product.
- MaryKay Lash Primer $ 15.00
* Dramatic Definition.Fuller looking lashes.
- MaryKay Cream Eyecolor (Violet Storm) $22.00
* Soft, creamy, long wearing formula
- MaryKay True Dimensions Lip Stick (Pink Cherie) $18.00
* Intensely moisturizing. Exquisitely smoothing
Now I have used MaryKay products in the past and they never disappoint. When I was younger it never appealed to me because I always had the impression that its old ladyish. I do believe if they offered a selection of brighter colors they might appeal to a younger crowd. That aside I was impressed by how much I like the products. It would of been nice if they put a few samples such as perfume because I didn't even know that they offered perfume. I have to say I really like the packaging , very clean , classy and sleek. The prices are a bit on the pricey side for me, along the same pricing as MAC. I tend not to by pricey makeup for 1 I can't afford it and 2 because I have so much makeup that buying high priced makeup isn't really a smart idea , but for someone that needs a set of makeup for their everyday I would defiantly suggest making the MaryKay investment. You will get a good quality makeup that will last.
The Wrap Up:
I am in love with the Lash Lengthening and the Lash primer. They work incredibly well and look great. As far as everything else. The brush is nice, very sturdy and easy to use, and the price is good! The Cream eyecolor is a fantastic color but I really don't like cream shadows personally. It would never be something that I would buy myself. but as far as they actual product, it's easy to use and dries pretty quickly. Now for the lipstick. Love the color,don't like the fact its lipstick. I don't wear lipstick, it never looks right on me. This lipstick is very creamy and a good formula but I never wore it out of my place.
Would I buy MaryKay products?
I am still kind of on the fence. I don't see many products that I would like but I probably would give it a try and meet up with a consultant to try some stuff out. MK is a quality product for a decent price.
