The One Where I Try Mary Kay Makeup For the First Time. Bonus: You Can Win a $100 Mary Kay Gift Basket!
Look at the pretty package I received from Mary Kay! I was asked to try a few of their products and then tell you all about my experience with them.
I received the following products:
* Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color bundle, which was customized for my eye color (brown.)
* Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color-- fade resistant color that contains vitamins A, C and
E to help protect your skin from wrinkle-causing radicals!
* Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara
* Mary Kay Tinted Lip Balm Sunscreen SPF 15- tint color that provides moisture with
ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter.
I also received the Mary Kay Compact Mini and I have tell you that I absolutely LOVE it! It is a magnetic, refillable compact that makes it easy to carry your favorite selection of Mary Kay products. It also has a compartment at the bottom to hold the brushes, but is compact enough to fit in a small handbag with ease. I look forward to switching out different colors in the future.
Now looks like this:
Now, onto the makeup!
I was a bit surprised to see blue shadow in my eye palette. I have never worn blue eyeshadow because I'm scared of blue eyeshadow. However, I was willing to trust Mary Kay and give it a try.
I have to say, I was grateful for the instructions provided. As much I love makeup, I am not very good at applying makeup. It was super helpful to have a "how to" guide to follow, especially since I was going to be using a color that I was not 100% comfortable using.
I'm happy to say that I was pleased with the results. The blue was deep, yet subtle and made my boring brown eyes "pop!"
Can we talk about the mascara for a minute? Because this mascara was fabulous. It went on smoothly, made my lashes look long and thick without any clumping. I have been pretty set on the same mascara for a while now, but I will absolutely continue to use this mascara.
Bonus: my daughter enjoying the heck out of the Tinted Lip Balm
