I love the way these brushes are made! The handles and ferrels are amazing quality. I have a split opinion on them though. While the powder brush is rather scratchy and has some shedding, that concealer/eyeshadow brush is amazing! Soft, just enough density to get a nice wash of color. I've been really picking it up to apply eyeshadow, creams, and concealer. That brush is a must for me, skip the powder brush though.
Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara in I <3 Black $15
Mary Kay describes this as a defining and "defending" (confused on that word being used) mascara that gives 4x volume. Can I just say I LOVE THIS MASCARA! It takes a bit of patience to get the perfect application, but it is WELL worth it for me! I didn't see massive amounts of volume, but I felt like it looked amazing. Nice, plush, defined lashes. This might be one of my stand out favorites of all these items.
Mary Kay Cream Eye color in Apricot Twist $14
I love all cream eyeshadows, seriously, I'm obsessed with them. I really did enjoy this color, it is a nice golden with a touch of pink. The formula of this is REALLY creamy, I was very afraid it would mean crease city, but it was not the case. This cream holds up really well alone, or paired with a powder shadow as well. My one negative about it is that the color can sort of blend away when you are trying to apply, it takes a careful touch to get maximum color payoff. I am really interested in the other colors in the range. It comes in 9 shades!!!
Mary Kay Cream Eyeliner in Jet Black $18
Stellar Cream liner, I'm not usually one that wears black liner. I think it looks way to stark for my personal taste, but I've worn this everyday since I got it in the mail! It glides on easily and stays put. It comes with an expandable brush, but that is the one thing I didn't like about the product. The brush didn't apply it evenly and the brush tip didn't keep it's shape. I don't know if I would repurchase this product because I don't wear lots of black liner, but If I did I would really repurchase it. I hope they start making it in other shades!!!!
Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush $12
This is the formula I wish Nars Orgasm was. This blush is stunning in person, such a beautiful radiant coral with a beautiful golden sheen. This goes on amazing and gives just enough radiance to make you look alive. The shimmer is very subdued, so it's not a disco ball on the cheeks. This blush comes in the shown refill pan, and you have a few options as far as customization goes. As for me, its going right into a Z-Palette, which I really like because my blush drawer is getting pretty full (a make-up hoarders daily struggle). Comes in 10 shades, and I am really wanting to try some others out! Blush OBSESSSSEDDDDDD!!!
Mary Kay Bronzing Powder in Light/Medium $18
This bronzer is much like the previously mentioned blush, comes in a standard refill pan form. Can we also mention that this is a good size bronzer for the $18 price tag. This is a bronzer I see myself grabbing for when the weather gets warmer and I start getting some sun. It has a nice sheen too it, again not too much glitter or shine. Just enough! I am usually a matte bronzer fan, but this is a great color to give the skin a nice sunkissed glow. Available in Light/Medium, or Medium/Dark.
Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder $16
Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Gloss in Mango Tango $14
This gloss is a cool hybrid gloss. It's a nourishing product, paired with long wearing, vivid color. Then bam, HIGH GLOSS FINISH! It's a really great one product to apply and go. It has a slight tacky finish, not MAC or Nars sticky, but more sticky than Buxom. This color is insane! I was so scared of it at first, but mixed with my natural lip color it takes on this pretty vibrant coral. IN LOVE! This is a nice Vanilla sccent and its a cute little tube. It is actually more product than a Buxom gloss at .15 oz. This comes in 14 shades
To finish this post off I want to show you my simple look I did the first day I wore the products!
