Thanks to Influenster, I was sent my first ever, makeup only, voxbox!
Apparently they heard that I’m a lover of all things beauty related.
Let me break it all down for you using a five star rating…five being the best.
First up :
Total Temptation Eyeshadow + Highlight Palette
Rating: 2.75 stars
I like both eyeshadow color stories. The problem is in the color payoff. It was just average in my book. I wanted the darks to be darker. Also, this palette was too shimmery for my taste (and wrinkly eyelids). For a girl in her teen’s, I think this would be great.
Check out the horrible job I did on swatching the warm neutrals. I realized afterwards that you are supposed to use the inside of your arm…
where there are no age spots…
to detract from the colors.
The far right swatch is the highlighter.
Now, the highlighters are what I did like about the palette. They were blinding!
Here is my face done up with all the above colors.
It’s hard to tell anything.
BUT, did you notice my lashes and brows???
Total Temptation Washable Mascara in Blackest Black
MSRP : $9.49
Rating : 3.25 stars
I was impressed that this mascara didn’t leave little black dots under my eyes.
This stuff doesn’t budge…
which means when I go to take it off, it’s a little more difficult…
and consequently, it leaves a mess around my eyes…
that I don’t bother cleaning up until morning.
I’m quite the looker when I hit the bed at night.
Good thing it’s dark.
Now, for my favorite thing out of this whole collection…
that I actually would purchase!
Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil in Soft Brown
MSRP : $7.99
Rating : 5 stars
This product is everything!! In my opinion, it’s a total dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer that retails for $23.00 at Sephora.
The pencil comes in four shades and the color I chose, Soft Brown, was spot on. The pencil is just the right amount of soft, so you don’t have to apply much pressure to get the color payoff that you need. At first I didn’t think I was going to like the tiny teardrop shaped brush, but I do. This has been my go-to eyebrow product since I received it.
Final thoughts :
The majority of the collection is a pass for me.
BUT, I whole heartedly recommend the eyebrow pencil!!
Would love to hear your thoughts, if you have tried any of these products.
