Hello there everyone, guys, and gals, I hope everyone is doing well, and having a great summer thus far! As I am writing this I am watching a sweet little baby sleep in his swing, so precious, babies are my heart, and soul I tell ya, I can’t get enough, and am so incredibly lucky that I get to do what I do, and also have hobbies, like blogging as well. I am privileged to be a blogger for influenster, and was lucky enough to receive the loreal paris vox box for review! Loreal has always been my favorite drug store brand, so this was perfect for me! Although, I do know that there are some other high end brand vox boxes floating around, and really wish that I was able to get one of those, but that’s okay, I do love loreal, and will definitely use them as well! Loreal products never disappoint, and are always up to standard of high end products. Yes, I am aware what brands loreal as a company owns, I think that is high they are always of high quality, but at drug store prices, either way it’s amazing that’s for sure, everything I have ever tried, I have loved, and it makes me want to try other products from the brand.
Okay, a quick disclaimer>>>> Influenster sent these products to review, free to me for my opinion, to try out, and test on behalf of loreal paris. I will be providing my honest opinion on each product, and how I thought they performed, etc. My opinions are my own.
What I received in my Loreal paris vox box:
Color rich eye shadow in *200 Paris Beach*
This color was unfortunately not the best. It looks okay in the pan, but it is very matte white, with no shimmer, it swatches, and applies very chalky, and not smooth at all. I used this as an eyeshadow base color before applying other shadows on top, and it worked fine for this, but my eyeshadows didn’t last all day as I expected. I don’t think this would work as an brow bone highlight either, because it is so matte, I like shimmer personally. I do appreciate the pan size of the shadow.
Color rich eye shadow in *207 Pain Au Chocolat*
This shadow was a dream! I have no idea how they can vary so much, yet be the same formula, this color is absolutely beautiful both swatched, and on the lids. Simply stunning, the pigmentation, and texture of the eyeshadow is completely different from the above color, so interesting. It is so buttery, and soft, and blends like butter! The color is a pretty rose gold, with a lot of shimmer, which I love! Definitely a must have color, so glad I got it, and this stayed on my eyelids all day without creasing!
Voluminous Original Mascara in *310 Blackest Black*
I have heard amazing things about this mascara, and have always wanted to try it, so I was very glad to receive it, and the lash primer inside the vox box! This mascara really is well known for a reason, it adds so much volume, and definition to your lashes, without clumping! The formula is perfect with just one coat, and separates the lashes without much effort. I definitely needed a mascara like this to add definition, and volume, because my eye lashes are so thin, and short. This mascara makes a huge difference, especially when used with the eye lash primer. Truly gives you the va va voom beautiful lashes affect without looking clumpy.
Voluminous Lash Primer in *300 White Primer*
Everyone needs this eye lash primer!! This stuff is a miracle, seriously it is a game changer in the way that I apply my mascara now! I can’t believe I waited so long to give it a try. You add the primer to your lashes prior to added mascara, and it helps build volume, and thicken each individual lash adding tons of volume, and separates each eye lash with ease, so it’s easier to apply your mascara over it. It is a great addition to your lash routine, and worth the extra step!
Infallible Original Never Fail Eyeliner in *511 Black Noir*
Okay, I will admit I am picky with eyeliners, they have to be very pigmented, and glide on my eyelids with ease. This one did to my surprise!! The liner is very smooth, and silky, kind of a no tug, or pulling eyeliner in my opinion. It didn’t hurt or make my eyes water, which is always a bonus for me. It is also very black, and richly pigmented. The liner applied nice, and stayed all day as well. I love anything from the infallible line I tell ya, I want it all!
Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro Kit in *386 Light To Medium*
I have never been huge on brow products, I think it’s not as important as everyone makes it out to be, I am more of a natural brow gal, and when I do my brows, I like them to be light with just a thin coat of color to define them, and make them more recognizable, because they are so thin. This kit was a great all in one, the brow stylist did everything I was looking for, the colors matched well, and they made my eyebrows stay in place all day, and look great, I love the ease of having it as an all in one product!
This was a great vox box from influenster. Loreal will remain one of my favorite brands from the drug store, heck even out of the drugstore! I am so lucky to have received these great products from Loreal to try out, I really feel that I wouldn’t have given them a try, but am so glad that I got the opportunity to, because now I have more favorite products, that are not only affordable, but work as well as high end in my opinion as well. Thank you influenster!
