For as little makeup as I wear, it’s probably a little odd that I LOVE to buy it. Or, really, it’s that I love to TRY it. You know me, the obsessive review-reader and product junkie. I’m always looking for the best. So, I was pleased as punch to get a box full of Mary Kay’s latest and greatest. Allow me to tell you about some of the goodies I tried out…
Mary Kay® sent me three different mascaras: their Ultimate Mascara™ and also two from the Lash Love™ line (regular and waterproof). I’m not into super thick and bold eyelashes, so my first pick was definitely one of the Lash Love mascaras. The wand has short and firm but flexible bristles that are close together to separate those lashes, giving you a long lash and a natural look. Just what I’d hoped for! The waterproof version did exactly as it claims, holding up for 10-plus hours, and perfect for boating and those random, unexplainable bouts of pregnancy tears.
I’m a bit of a chicken when it comes to wearing eyeshadow, so I was excited to see that they had so many color options for me to try out. Of course, I started out with the neutral colors. Loved them. They go on so smoothly! Then I got brave and layered on some of the fun colors. I love playing with makeup!
My favorite items in the whole set were the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus™ Lip Gloss (it doesn’t dry out your lips!) and the TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set. Remember Satin Hands? That timeless classic from Mary Kay makes your hands smooth as satin, really. I remember back in high school saving up my hard-earned money to keep a steady supply of Satin Hands in my drawer. Anyway, the TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set is what you need for smooth skin!
Oooh, one last thing that I LOVE from Mary Kay (and have suggested in my ‘Gift Ideas for Women’ posts) is their Travel Roll-Up Bag. I can hang it up high to keep my makeup away from my little girls, and when traveling, all I have to do is roll it up and it’s ready to go. No need to sift through a bag to find what I need.
Well, my lady friends, want to win some makeup? How about a Mary Kay gift basket?
