I actually received this a few days ago but I’m just getting to it now. A few weeks ago I was asked to complete a quiz to receive a Voxbox from Influenster and I was selected to receive this box for review. I received 5 items which included: (Retail Price)

-Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in I Black ($15.00)
-Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush ($10.00)
-Mary Kay Lash Primer ($15.00)
-Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm ($22.00)
-Mary Kay True Dimensions Lip Stick in Pink Cherie ($18.00)

So let me start off by explaining the brand. I don’t have a Mary Kay lady on speed dial or anything, a few years ago I did know this customer from working at the dealership who often dropped off catalogs and the like, I maybe have been to one Mary Kay party a long time ago. Like 10 years ago, when I really didn’t care too much about makeup, well I can’t say I didn’t care but it seemed to be geared towards older ladies. I think that’s the image a lot of people get. It was like going to a Tupperware party but for makeup that was way too expensive. Quite frankly the prices of these products are a good surprise for me, but maybe it’s because I am older and willing to pay more for my makeup now than I was when I was in my teens. Overall I like these products, even if the lip stick wasn’t exactly a complimentary shade to me.

Elf 50% Off Best Sellers!

So I’m back! I’m not even going to mention all that’s happened or why I’ve been gone for so long but let’s just say I could achieve a proper work/home life balance.

Onto the fun stuff. Last week I was cleaning out my purse and realized my favorite “go to” eyeliner had lost its cap and completely dried out. There’s a story here though, because of the current weather situation in Northern California (burning hot!), I have been going very low key on my makeup routine. Since I figure I’ll sweat it off or it will melt off I have been basically using a powder foundation and if I do wear any eye makeup I’ve been using minimal eye makeup and liner. One of my favorite re-discovered items has been the elf waterproof eyeliner in Teal. It’s a super bright color that gives a pop of color without smearing or making me look too colorful at work. It’s the perfect spring/summer color! It’s also the one that lost its cap and dried out. I got lucky this time and elf was having a 50% off sale on its Best Selling items. This of course was on its list. So I went ahead and made a big purchase and my items finally arrived today!
