I got my newest Influenster VoxBox in the mail and it was filled with some fun goodies from Estée Edit. Here’s what I got:
- Inside Track Eye Kajal in Twisted Teal/Tarnished Gold
- Late Night Eraser Brightening Eye Balm with Pink Peony
- Metallishadow Crème + Powder in Black Star
- Radiance Activator Treat + Prep + Glow
To start from the top — the Eye Kajal. Here’s a swatch on my wrist:
This stuff is smooth and creamy, and goes on like buttah. It’s made to give a smudgy, “slept-in” look, and this stuff smudges like nobody’s business. On top of that, it’s super waterproof. I went to wash this off with soap and water and it took over a day to wear off. So…going for that “slept-in” look should be easy to attain, considering you actually can sleep in it. I really like both shades on this and am looking forward to using it more!
Next up, the Late Night Eraser. I like this stuff pretty well and it’s very light, which is nice. Although, as it stands, I’m still partial to my Arbonne Corrective Eye Creme, and it’d be pretty tough to get me to leave it.
The Mettalishadow Creme and Powder are not really my style, and feel way too dark for anything I’d use normally. Even going out, I’m not one to use eyeshadow much at all, so this is a little too much for me. To be honest, I’m completely intimidated by the shade.
Silver shiny stuff I can do. The black…not so much. I don’t really know what to do with this quite yet. Maybe I’ll get wild and save it for my bachelorette party.
And finally, the Radiance Activator is not what I expected. First off, it’s tan/beige in color. I expected it to be white. Secondly, it has, like…glitter in it. I put it on the back of my hand to test (my skin is ultra sensitive and will break out at the slightest inkling of a chemical it doesn’t like, so I always test there first). The smell is nice, kind of gentle and flowery. But it’s…sparkly. It’s not overkill, but I’m not sure I find it fair to say that a product makes you “glow” when in reality it’s putting tiny shinies all over you. Not really my speed.
Overall, the product I’m most thrilled with is the Eye Kajal (eyeliner, if ya nasty). It’s a definite keeper, and I would recommend it! My last bit of feedback on these is: the caps are mirror-y and show fingerprints like a mother. Not ideal for my OCD.
