L'Oréal Voluminous VoxBox

L'Oréal Voluminous VoxBox

Yet again, Influenster has hooked me up with more great products to test out! This time, I received SIX  L'Oréal eye products to help create the perfect eye look.

  1. L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Primer/Base
  2. L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara
  3.  L'Oréal Paris Infallible Never Fail Mechanical Eyeliner
  4. L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro Kit
  5. L'Oréal Paris Eye Shadow - Paris Beach
  6. L'Oréal Paris Eye Shadow - Pain Au Chocolat

This was my first time using a primer for my eyelashes and I have been very impressed with it. I found the brush to be effective, and enjoyed the softness to it. The primer is white when you apply it to your lashes and I can instantly see the primer give my eyelashes a boost. The white color helped me to see if I was coating my lashes evenly, which I thought was a bit of an added bonus. After applying the primer to my lashes, I then added a coat of the L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara on top of it.

After applying the L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Primer/Base to my lashes, I then applied the L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Volume Building Mascara. The mascara was not even the slightest bit clumpy and I watched my eyelashes magically extend as I applied it. It also gave my lashes the perfect curl. I am a huge mascara snob, and I was so impressed with how good this mascara worked. I can wear it for the entire day, and my lashes are still holding strong at the end of the day. This is a great option for those who want an effective and affordable mascara. 

I was already impressed by the mascara, but I gotta say, the eye liner is also pretty top notch! The black is very bold and it glides on so nice and smooth. It's also a mechanical eyeliner, which is my favorite! You don't have to worry about sharpening it. The eyeliner claims to last 16 hours and I would say that it definitely lasts 16 hours, but the humidity in Florida did make it smear just a little. But in the eyeliner's defense... the humidity has been so bad this summer!

Out of all the products I tried, this was by far my least favorite... and I really hate to say this, but I didn't like this kit at all! The kit itself was very cute, with the mini tweezers, the angled brush, and the spoolie brush.. but the product did absolutely nothing for me. The soft wax barely even applied to the brush and I couldn't see that the product was doing anything. I really wanted to like this product, but unfortunately, it did nothing for my eye brows.

The eye shadows looked very promising, but it was also lacking just a bit, in my opinion. I would consider both of the shades to be in the nude palette and they both looked really pretty, but unfortunately they didn't seem to have much pigment to them once I applied them to my eyes. You can still work with it, and the Pain Au Chocolat shade does have a nice shimmer to it. I would definitely recommend using a primer before applying this eye shadow, to get the best pigment that you can.

My Experience

My experience testing out these products from L'Oreal was overall positive. Mascara is my favorite makeup product, so I can be somewhat of a snob when it comes to testing them.. but I truly loved both the primer and the mascara as a duo! I used all of the products in my VoxBox to complete a simple eye look and I was happy with how it turned out. My favorite product was definitely the primer and the mascara. Using the two products together really made my lashes instantly pop. My least favorite product, and really the only product I didn't like, was the eye brow kit. Unfortunately, it didn't do much for my eye brows, which you will be able to see in my picture.

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are 100% my own. #LorealMakeup
