To be honest, the only Mary Kay beauty product I had in my collection when I received the pretty package above was an eyeshadow compact that was my mom's from the early 80's. I know, weird, but I think she used to sell Mary Kay products so they were always lying around the house when I was a kid. I suppose I still have them for sentimental reasons? But maybe I'm a hoarder? But for some reason, Mary Kay never really registered as a product I'd use... now.
And then I pulled the pretty satin ribbon off of the matte black box and found a perfect little eyeshadow and blush compact made specifically for blue eyes. I was happy to see that it was pretty similar to the color palette I already use ...browns, coppers, golds, peaches; complementary shades to blue are always in the orange spectrum of the color wheel.
Inside the box was a little 1-2-3 step-how-to apply the specified colors to your lids depending on the shape of your eyes. Easy and simple and perfectly flattering. Love that.
Honestly, I liked them so much, I've been wearing the Mary Kay eye shadows on a regular basis since I first tried them a week ago. I also use a little of the peachy blush on my lids to brighten it all up a bit for a nice Summery look.
The kit also included a mascara and a tinted lip balm. And since my straight/short/blonde eyelashes are a nightmare to work with, I was pretty happy with the lush mascara. But the bright pink tinted lip balm was a little more my speed. 1. I hate lipstick and mostly wear gloss 2. Super brights are on trend for Summer. I love that I can just grab it and apply without a mirror.
...and the sweet flavor makes for perfectly kissable lips!
