It has been documented here on my bloggity blog before that my love for Mary Kay® products is deep and true. Deep and true, friends. Which is odd because I’m not much of a makeup person. I wear very little make up on a daily basis, but that just means that what I do wear needs to be quality and affordable, and that is why Mary Kay® works for me.
Recently, Mary Kay sent me a box full of goodies to try. Naturally, when the box arrived, I had to fight Gracie fight-club style to keep it out of her grubby little girly paws. I won that fight and then locked myself in the bathroom for an hour while I played.
Here is what I love about Mary Kay® make-up products: Everything is customizable! They sent me something called the Compact Mini, and it is just about the most brilliant beauty product concept I think I’ve seen. The compact is MAGNETIC.
Just let that sink in for a minute. It’s magnetic. So, you can pop in different colors and products when you want a change. New season? No biggie. Change out those fall colors for some richer winter ones. Not feeling the blush this time of year? No biggie. Pop out the blush and add in two more eye shadow colors instead. Want to try some fancy-pants contouring make up styles that I am not anywhere near qualified enough to try on my own? No biggie. Take out the eye shadows and put in two different shades of blush. The possibilities are endless!
Another product they sent me was something called Gel Eyeliner. It came in this little pot and it looked so INTENSE. Like, I should probably have a degree in cosmetology before playing with something like this. This ain’t yo’ momma’s eye liner, ladies.
It came with this tiny paintbrush thing, and you literally PAINTED on your eyeliner! I felt like an art product! And it was AWESOME! It went on so much smoother than my normal eyeliner (that must be the gel part) and it was super easy to apply.
By the time I put on blush, eyeshadow, and eye liner, I felt like I should go ahead and put on the lipstick and gloss just to finish off the look–even though it was only 5:30 on a Monday night, and I should have been preparing dinner for my family. Why not just swish on some lipstick and call it a day? So, I did.
And that’s when I was like, “Well, HELLO, PLAYFUL PARTY GIRL LOOK!” I used their Creme Lipstick in Berry Kiss and it was berry, berry pwetty. They sent me a tube of their NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss in Pink Wink (how cute is that name?!), too, so I topped it all off with some shiny glass to just make my mouth POP.
Well, by the time my whole face was done up all nice and pretty, who wants to cook a chicken? Thankfully, my hubby agreed that those berry shinny lips should be taken out to dinner, so the chicken waited and we hit the town for a crazy date night. Just kidding. We took the kids to Chili’s. Because that’s how you roll when you’re playing suburban dress-up on a Monday night. Thanks Mary Kay® for introducing me once again to new products that have the same standard of excellence as your tried and true products. I’m glad we’re friends.
