I'm teaming up with BlogHer to share with you some of Mary Kay's new products, as well as a few of their bestselling items. When I was given the opportunity to try Mary Kay products for this campaign, I was very excited because I have only used two Mary Kay products my whole life. One was a lip gloss my mom used to get me as a "treat" when I was in junior high/high school. The other was the Satin Lips Lip Mask someone gave me as a birthday gift years ago. I loved both items, so I'm not sure why I had not tried any other products until now.
Mary Kay® Compact Mini Beauty in the Palm of Your Hand. Take glam on the go with the MaryKay® Compact Mini. The ingenious refillable magnetic compact provides a discrete way to carry those beauty must-haves and accommodate your busy lifestyle. The Mary Kay® Compact Mini is perfect for all women, whether you like to keep things simple or love to change your beauty scenery frequently! See how easy it is to customize the compact by filling it with the three mineral eye colors and a Mary Kay® Cheek Color. And don’t forget to store those applicators in the hidden tray underneath the magnetic well. This is one of my favorite products, mainly because I love the blush color. I use it as a cheek highlighter on top of my regular blush. In addition, due to its size it can easily be thrown into my little cosmetic case I carry in my extra-large tote bag for long days away from home or when traveling.
TimeWise® Microdermabrasion Set Instant results. Fight fine lines, refine pores and achieve beautifully smooth skin – immediately – with this simple, two-step set. Step 1: Refine is an advanced exfoliator using the key exfoliating ingredients used by dermatologists to immediately energize skin and reveal more radiant, healthy-looking skin. Step 2: Replenish separates the set from the competition. It's a light-weight serum, containing vitamins, antioxidants and anti-irritants. This serum nourishes the soft, smooth skin revealed by Step 1: Refine. Try it! Love it! I've been using this for a few weeks now and I could see a difference in my face after the first use. The morning after I used it for the first time, the girls at the gym commented about how wonderful my skin looked. I've been using it twice a week. In the words of Kiki, if it calls for one, two is always better!
I'm always on the hunt for a great mascara. I've tried most drugstore brands, and the list of department store mascaras I've used over the years is endless. I have to say I was most excited to see all the boxes of mascara when I opened the box from Mary Kay. I've been using the following three combined together on my lashes daily: (1) Lash Primer, (2) Ultimate Mascara in black, and (3) Lash Love Waterproof Mascara in black. I love how easy all three are to apply and how long and shiny they make my lashes!
Mary Kay® Lash Primer The benefits are clear. Get more from your mascara – stronger, more voluminous, longer-looking lashes. This primer also strengthens and helps condition lashes. Plus, it lifts lashes and helps them stay curled longer.
Mary Kay® Ultimate Mascara™ in Black Boldly Voluptuous. When you want to go big, bold and dramatic, MaryKay® Ultimate Mascara™ is our most voluminous formula for longer-looking lashes that last all day.
Mary Kay® Lash Love™ Waterproof Mascara in Black Show your lashes some love with this formula that lasts for ten hours or more. It holds up through sweat, rain, tears, humidity, and pool and salt water. And lashes appear fuller, lifted and multiplied.
Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus™ Lip Gloss in Café Au Lait Kiss your lips with instant moisture, feel-good benefits and serious shine. This Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus™ Lip Gloss is one of fourteen gorgeous colors you can’t live without. Try them all! You’ll love the superlight, long-lasting formula and the good-for-your-lips ingredients, like antioxidants and botanical extracts, that leave lips smoothed, protected and conditioned. I'm very picky about lip coverings in general, especially lip glosses. I don't like them to be sticky or fragranced. The NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss is very nice! I love the Café Au Lait color. I need a second tube because I like to keep it in my main cosmetic case to put on before leaving the bathroom, but I wish I had one for my bag too. And the fact that it works magic on the look of my lips is a huge bonus! I will definitely be ordering more of these lip glosses.
Overall, I was very pleased with my experience trying out the new and bestselling products from Mary Kay. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I really liked the products. I plan to continue to use the products covered in this post and order a few others from their site that I'm anxious to try.
