Mary Kay Vox Box Review #MKGLAM - Behind the Camera and Dreaming

Mary Kay Vox Box Review #MKGLAM

Thursday, May 01, 2014

I was so excited to receive this Mary Kay Glam box from Influenster this weekend and really couldn't wait to try all the products! I have used Mary Kay Cosmetics in the past but it has been a really long while, so I was honestly looking forward to this box. 

They sent just about everything I need for a full face of makeup. I wasn't sure about using just the Translucent Powder alone, so I wore my own mineral based concealer and powder foundation and finished my face with everything Mary Kay. 


This was kind of a weekend/everyday look (and good gracious I need a tan). I could definitely step it up a little for an out to dinner look or just for fun! 


I really like the finished look the Translucent Powder gives my skin and it's super light and soft, but still provides coverage. The blush is a great shade for me and really goes on nicely. I have trouble finding blush that will last, so I usually resort to cream based, but this really has a nice pigment without having to do touch ups throughout the day (which I never do anyway). The bronzer I used to do some light contouring and dusted lightly on my chest, but will definitely use it more when I get a little summer color. Believe it or not, I do tan a little. I'd also love to try out some sunless tanners (pregnancy safe of course) if anyone has suggestions?


My favorite part of this box was the eyes! I love a good mascara and this has made my list! It separates and lengthens and you get a nice thick lash look. I only used one coat, but with multiple applications and add a little more eyeliner and you could really do a great cat eye or smokey eye look. I was going for more of a light springy casual look which is where the cream eye shadow comes in. It was light and a pretty color. A little too dark for highlighting for me, so I added just a little of a lighter tone under my brows. You can't see the shadow that well in the photo above, but I have worn it every day since!


I have to admit, I'm not really a lip color person. I wish I was, but I just don't like it when I look at myself in the mirror. Especially, a bold color and this was pretty bold. I'd love to try this gloss in a lighter more neutral color. I am wearing it above, but I toned it down a little before shooting the photo. Just a little out of my comfort zone! It did have staying power though, which is really important to me when I test out a new product. 

This was so much fun to get to pamper myself a little with all these great products. I look forward to using them and honestly with the prices, I will consider buying more Mary Kay. It's less expensive than you may think!

  1. Ahhh! So glad you liked the product! Their skin care line is even more amazing! Let me know if you do decide-I would love to help you! :)

  2. I really, really like that lip color on you! It looks great and makes your eyes pop. I'm with you on dark/bright shades not being my typical choice, that color is so pretty though. I'll have to try the mascara. I LOVE me a good mascara and have NO eyelashes, so I need a good mascara.


I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
