Yves Saint Laurent Vox Box Review

Recently, I was chosen to receive a Yves Saint Laurent Voxbox from Influenster. I was very excited to receive this box as I love their make up line. I bought their foundation while I was pregnant because it had a light feel to it, better for sensitive skin (skin that was raging with hormones), filtered several times, a glow to it and smelt nice (which is a biggie when pregnant). I also bought their concealer to cover the dark circles from not sleeping much, and I still use it today.

In the Voxbox was two items. The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer and Perfector.

I have used both of these items several times over the last week and I am in love with them. Reviews of the primer said they didn't like the gold specs in it and how it makes your face glittery. I would have to disagree with this.

The primer (for my sample) came in a bottle with a paddle handle. You simply dab primer on your face in several places and rub it in gently. I washed my hands after this, so it gave the primer time to set and so I could open up my other make up items I was to use next. The primer goes on so smooth, has an amazing smell to it, leave a slight shimmer on your face, evens out the pours, makes your skin feel so smooth, brightens up the face and it isn't greasy at all. I tend to have oily skin and this doesn't make your skin oily at all. I love how light it feels on your skin, how fast it dries (literally 10 seconds is enough time) and how it "primed" my face.

After the primer, I used my Touche Eclat (which I already owned) as my concealer and brightener. And finally put on my Le Teint Touche Eclat (foundation which I also already owned). I love the combination of all the products together and even using them separately.

Throughout the day my make up gets its wear and this is where the perfector comes in handy. I just swipe on the perfector with the applicator and it freshens my make up. The perfector can be used in three ways: as an overall base (either alone or under make up), to set your make up or touch up your make up. I have used this product all three ways. I love how it is a balm that turns into a powder when you rub it in. Again, it smells amazing, goes on light and turns to a powder quickly, goes on evenly and smoothly and isn't heavy.

    1. It is. I really love it. The price is a bit higher, in the $50 range, but so far I am loving it.

  2. This looks like a fabulous box! I've heard nothing but amazing things about that primer :)

    1. You should try it. Even a sample of it. I am happy I tried it because I love it so much, but also sad because now I am hooked! Once I find a product I love, I will spend all the money on it, hahaha.
