mary kay starlet on-the-go

You may have noticed a little circular button that I have in my sidebar that states that I'm a Influenster member. Influenster is a great {free!} program that you can sign up for online, answer a few surveys, and a earn badges to be eligible for some exclusive discounts and products. You're not always guaranteed an Influenster box for every program, but it's so fun and exciting when you get the email saying that you are!

The latest one I received is the Mary Kay Influenster Starlet On-The-Go Kit. As a makeup junkie, you can imagine how excited I was to get some full size products from a brand that I hadn't tried yet.

Sprinkles and Style || Mary Kay Influenster Starlet On-the-Go Kit

Sprinkles and Style || Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara and Lash Primer
Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in I Black, $15 || This picture doesn't really show the shape of the brush, but if you're familiar with Covergirl's Clump Crusher mascara then you know what it looks like. I've actually tried the Covergirl formula and didn't like it. And sadly, the same goes for this one. I got similar results with both - they turned my just curled lashes completely straight.

Lash Primer, $15 || I've never used a lash primer before so I don't have anything to compare this too. It worked just fine with my other mascaras, which are all waterproof. I liked it well enough that I'll continue to use it until it runs out.

Sprinkles and Style || Mary Kay True Dimensions Lip Stick
True Dimensions Lip Stick in Pink Cherie, $18 || This lipstick has some great packaging, and I am sucker for packaging. To open it, you just had to press down on the clear top and the tube came out of the bottom. This lipstick is moisturizing and really comfortable to wear on your lips. I never felt like I needed to apply lip balm. It lasted for maybe 3 - 4 hours on me {including eating lunch and drinking multiple glasses of water}. The color, I felt, didn't really suit my skin tone and seemed to turn to more of a pale pink as time wore on.

Sprinkles and Style || Mary Kay Cream Eye Color
Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm, $22 || I saved the best for last! This is a great cream eye shadow and came in a color that complimented my brown eyes. It was wearable with a light sweep all over the eyelid during the daytime and could be smoked out with another shadow or darkened for night. It is something I would consider repurchasing!

Also included in the box was a cream eye color/concealer brush. I haven't used it so I can't give a review on it, but it did seem to be a good brush!

Have you tried any Mary Kay products that you would recommend trying?
