Product Spotlight :: Mary Kay

I am a self-proclaimed beauty junkie. I love makeup and find any reason to buy new cosmetics. Whether it’s for an upcoming wedding I’m attending or because there’s a new eye shadow palette that’s cute and “travel friendly”, I can come up with any excuse to head to Sephora and load up with new products. Although I have tried a lot of items out there, there are still some brands that I have never tried before. One of those being Mary Kay.

My first thought when I think of Mary Kay is a pink Cadillac..and then I think of cute little older women. I think I’ve never tried this brand before because it’s never been readily available to me. I’m a big fan of heading to the store to swatch out things because ordering online can give me BIG TIME anxiety. There’s that whole waiting a week for it to arrive, and what if I don’t like it? But, I do like coming home to packages on my front door step! Whatever the case may be, I’ve just never tried anything from their makeup line.

I recently got my Influenster Box* in the mail and it was filled with full size Mary Kay products! We’re talking brushes, bronzer, a powder, blush, mascara and more! I have been loving digging into these items and so far I LOVE the bronzer and there’s a cream eyeshadow too that is starting to make it’s way into my daily makeup routine.

I decided to check out what Mary Kay had to offer and here are my top 5 items on my radar currently:

  • CC Cream $20 :: Lately I’ve been obsessed with trying out BB creams and CC creams. This one claims to have 8-in-1 benefits including having SPF 15 which is perfect for the upcoming summer months.
  • Baked Eye Shadow $10 :: I love this little eyeshadow! It has 3 different colors so this would be easy to pack when you’re traveling and they’re great colors for summer!
  • Mary Kay At Play Eye Crayon $10 :: I’m a huge fan of neutral eye colors and the color Over the Taupe looks like it’s right up my alley. This product would be great for an everyday wash of color on the lids.
  • Mary Kay Compact $18 :: This little compact is great because it’s a palette you can create! You can purchase any variety of eye shadows or blushes and they connect in with a magnet. Think of all the possibilities you can make with this palette! It’s also small enough to carry in your purse for everyday touchups.
  • True Dimensions Lipstick inFirecracker $16 :: I am a lip product junkie and this color looks like the perfect red for your lips for the hot summer.

The other great thing I realized about Mary Kay as well is how affordable all of these items are! They’re price just a bit higher than drugstore brands but I think these items are more along the lines of higher end makeup brands.

Given how great these initial items are, I may need to be making a makeup purchase soon!
