Mary Kay



BlogHer gave me a great opportunity to review some make-up from Mary Kay. What girl can so no to free make-up?!? Not this girl!

It came in the mail all wrapped up pretty.

The box contained Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara, Tinted Lip Balm, and Mineral Eye Color Bundle

I love the idea of bundling my eyeshadows and blush into one easy compact. I travel quite a bit for work and having everything all together would be so much easier. The colors were great for my green eyes and I was really impressed by the eyeshadow. My experience with Mary Kay eyeshadow in the past hasn't been good. They must have a new formula because the pigment of the eyeshadows was concentrated and it didn't take several applications to see the color. It also lasted throughout the day.

The blush was the best surprise! I usually wear name brand blush and this was just as good as those brands. I loved the color and the very slight shimmer.

I was a little hesitant about the tinted lip balm. It looks pretty bright in the tube, but it was much more subtle on. The best part is it contains SPF 15! That is a great thing for a fair skinned gal like me.

I'm very picky about my mascara and dreaded even putting this formula on my lashes. Boy, I was I wrong about it. The mascara doesn't clump and has a good consistency. The brush on the wand was a good shape and I was able to get a really good coat on my lashes.

You'll have to excuse the deer in headlights look. I did my make-up before work one morning and that flash was bright. :)

I think that Mary Kay has really stepped up their game. They are definitely not the same company I knew growing up and are real contenders in the beauty industry.
