I received my VoxBox full of L'Oréal Voluminous goodies. I absolutely love getting to try products that I have an interest in. Since I was a teen, I enjoyed playing in makeup, and now I get makeup freebies! Woohoo!
In this box was L'Oréal Voluminous Primer, L'Oréal Voluminous Mascara, Brow Stylist, Infallible Mechanical Eye Liner and two Eye Shadows.
I didn't have an opportunity to try the Brow Stylist, because the color was too light for my complexion, but I was able to try the other products and they are fantastic.
L'Oréal Voluminous Primer: I never used a primer before because I never had a need for it, or so I thought. My eyelashes are full naturally but they don't look that way unless I wear mascara, because they oddly aim straight instead of curling upward. It gets the usual thickness after using mascara, but when using this primer followed by the L'Oreal mascara, my lashes are not just thicker, but longer. That was nice, because I cannot wear false lashes. This gives me the dramatic lash look I desire occasionally.
In order for the primer to work, you have to do one eye at a time. Meaning, add the primer to your lashes, followed by mascara before the primer dries. So don't use the primer on both eyes, then put on your mascara because it will have already dried, wasting your time.

L'Oréal Voluminous Mascara: The mascara worked very well with the primer. I did not use it alone yet, so I don't know how it compares to my current mascara, but so far, it's a great compliment to the Voluminous Primer.
L'Oreal Eye Shadows (colors 200 & 207): The Eye Shadows are rich in color. Goes on very smoothly and easy to wipe away excess. A tap of the brush gave me enough color to cover half of my eye lid. Color 200 is like a sandy color. Very light and matte, no shimmer and not something I usually select, which made it perfect for me to try. I like the way it looked blended with color 207, which has a bit of a shimmer.
I used 207 for most of my eye lids, but dabbed the color 200 in the middle of my eye lids. I also added it to the corners of my eyes for a more "awake" look.
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Eyeliner: Great! So far I have been receiving fantastic eye liners from Influenster and this one joins the list. I love products that aren't complicated and don't require other things to make it work. With this liner, I do not need a sharpener. It goes on smooth and lasted until I wiped it off with my makeup wipes. It has a smudger tip at the other end, but I haven't used that part yet and don't really plan to. Using the eyeliner part is all I need, and this is a great liner!
