MK Glam VoxBox

I received this box complimentary from Influenster and MaryKay

Mary Kay catalog

Estimated value= $117.00

Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder $16.00

controls unwanted shine all day

I used this after applying my foundation and I liked the way it looked on my face. I did take the shine away.

Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss=$14.00
Mango Tango

Rich, intense long-wearing shade

It lasted on my lips for a few hours with out having to reapply
It did not feel too thick on my lips or sticky.

Mary Kay Cream Eye Color=$14.00
Apricot Twist

Soft, creamy long wearing formula

Very easy to apply. Next time I will use this as a base color and then apply a golden tone shadow over it.

Mary Kay Bronzing Powder=$18.00

Creates a natural-looking sun-kissed glow

I thought this was going to be to light for me but it was actually perfect. It gave my face a really sun kissed look. I love it. This is definitely going into my daily makeup routine. I also used it as eyeshadow on my upper crease.

Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color=$12.00
Shy Blush

Stay true color defines cheek bones

It gave me a really soft pink shimmer to my cheeks.
Loved it

The bronzer and blush come in removable packaging which is great if you have a Mary Kay Compact

Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara=$15.00
I <3 Black

Mascara that defines, defends and  delivers four times the volume.
I LOVE this mascara. It made my lashes look so long and pretty. It really opened up my eyes! This is also going into my daily makeup routine.

Mary K Gel Eyeliner with Expandable brush applicator=$18.00
Jet Black

Versatile eyeliner with intense color payoff

I love the pigment of this eyeliner. It is so black. It is very easy to apply. It did smudge  a little bit on the outer corners of my eyes but overall a really  good gel liner. 

expandable brush applicator

Mary Kay cream eye color/concealer brush and  Mary Kay Powder brush
$10.00 & $16.00

The perfect brush for applying any cream product

Designed for even, smooth application of loose and pressed powder.

This was truly a  great box. I loved everything in it.

This is the look I created using only the products that were in the MKGlam VoxBox (except foundation and Eyebrows). It gave me a real natural glow great for a everyday look.
 Thanks for stopping by my blog. Let me know if you want an invite to join Influenster.

NEW ARM & HAMMER (TM) Truly Radiant (TM)

I am a member of Smiley360. I received these products to test and review. Click the link above for a coupon on your next purchase of  Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant

I received a full size of Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste and a Truly Radiant Deep Clean Spin Brush

Claims:Removes even more hard-to-reach plaque
Elongated bristles for greater Access

directions on how to remove brush head and battery base

Truly Radiant Fluoride Anti-cavity toothpaste
Fluoride cavity protection
Unsurpassed enamel strengthening
Smooths surface imperfections & restores luster
Outstanding whitening
Deep Cleaning

Brush head is replaceable

Color-wear bristles remind you to change brush head every 3 month

Slide switch UP to turn on brush

package include 2 AA alkaline batteries.

Fluoride Anti-Cavity Toothpaste-Fresh Mint Flavor

Has a great taste compared to using straight baking soda
Leaves your breath smelling fresh even after a few minutes
I have noticed a slight change in color. I am a coffee and tea drinker so I try to brush my teeth after I drink dark drinks. 
My teeth look glossier after I brush

Toothbrush reaches all the way to the back without any discomfort
The bristles really do scrub and clean your teeth
I had a hard time trying to open the battery replacement section. After a few tries I stopped when I was not able to open it. The batteries did not need to be replaced but I just wanted to look at it.
The spin-brush is really loud. Its louder than other spin-brush I have used. I feel like it might wake my son up when I brush at night.
I have a hard time turning it on when my hands are wet. My hands have to be completely dry to turn on the switch. It would have been easier if there was just a soft button to push instead of switching the button "UP".

Final thoughts:
I would replace my other brand toothpaste with the Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant toothpaste because I do notice a change of color and it doesn't leave my gums sensitive.. I would not replace my spin-brush with the Truly Radiant Spin-brush because of the loudness and switch on button.

I probably say this every month but this one is my favorite Ipsy bag so far. I have been wanting to try the UD glide on liner for the longest time. I have been very curious about the Coastal Scentsbrushes as well. I can always use a nude lip liner. The bag is really cute too.Thanks for stopping by
