Every spring and every fall I like to add new colors to my makeup bag of tricks. A new blush or perhaps a killer color for the lips, yes please! So when BlogHer asked if I would like to review a handful of Mary Kay products I was like, "Send them my way ladies!"
Want to find out what came in the box of goodies?
Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara
Mary Kay Compact Mini with mineral eye and cheek color
Mary Kay TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set
Mary Kay Creme Lipstick
I was a little concerned about the bright shade of lipstick and the purple and silver eye color. I tend to shy away from color and stick to my boring neutrals. I feel like I can pull off a colored gloss, but lipstick always feels foreign on me. As a gal who likes to try new things, I knew this would be fun. The brushes came out and the makeup went on.
I will say that I always use drugstore mascara. I have never found one worthy of a pricey purchase. But Mary Kay pulled out the big guns and surprised me with the Lash Love Mascara. Awesome flexible wand. No clumps. Glides on smoothly, and I actually think my lashes looked longer. I am a convert now. The mineral eye colors were a big hit too. Depending on the mood, you can add just a touch or really go all out and saturate your lid. And I think I have found my new favorite cheek color. It looks pretty stellar on my skin tone. Oh and the lipstick --- so fun! My boys always comment when I wear color on my lips. They gave me two thumbs up. I was a little apprehensive it might go on too bright, but the pink was just the perfect shade of fun.
Mary Kay TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set was the perfect way to prep my skin before applying the fun colors. Pretty awesome! My skin looked brighter and healthy.
I am a big believer in getting ready each day. I almost always add a touch of makeup whether I am relaxing with the boys at home or running around town. I feel better when I look better. And I am excited to have found a few new favorites to help me achieve a fantastic fall look.
