MKGlam VoxBox

Hi all! I have another post for you today. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to receive the MKGlam VoxBox from Influenster for review, containing some Mary Kay beauty products. This isn't quite polish related, but I'm a makeup junkie too, so I thought you all might be interested.

The box arrived in very cute, eco-friendly packaging. When I took everything out, this is what I found:

  • Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush
  • Bronzing Powder
  • Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist
  • Gel Eyeliner with expandable brush applicator in Jet Black
  • NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango
  • Translucent Loose Powder
  • Lash Love Mascara
  • Powder Brush
  • Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush

See my thoughts on the products and swatches after the jump!

First up, we have the loose powder. I really loved the packaging on this, which lets you twist the top to open and close the dispenser. Other powders I have don't have these, and can get messy in travel. Overall, it was a pretty basic translucent powder.

This is the expandable brush for the gel eyeliner, which I think is pretty handy.

I swatched the two eye products on my arm, with the eyeliner being on the left and the eyeshadow being on the right. The eyeliner was opaque in one pass. The eyeshadow left a sheerer wash of color.

The packaging of the bronzer and blush felt cheaper than the rest of the packaging. The bronzer and blush pans could pop out of their casing a little too easily for my liking.

The bronzer is on the left; the blush on the right. They're a little sheer, but can be built up. I think they're nice choices for my fair skin, but might not work for someone with a darker complexion.

I'm pretty in love with this lip gloss. That's one pass of color! I tend to gravitate to lipglosses that are more on the opaque side, and this one fit the bill perfectly. It wasn't too tacky and had great color payoff.

Overall, I'm really pleased with the products in this VoxBox! I had never tried Mary Kay previously, but now I'd love to try more.

All products were provided to me for review by Influenster.
