HITS: bronzing powder, loose powder, cheek color, gel eyeliner, powder brush, cream eye color, cream brush
The bronzing powder and cheek color were amazing! Felt like butter and applied beautifully. Blends like a dream and is very builds nicely. The translucent loose powder was a nice touch to set everything into place. Seemed to help minimize my pores as well. All the brushes were dense yet soft at the same time and applied everything nicely. The cream eye color (I applied with my finger) was also very creamy and blended nicely. Over all these products changed my mind in a positive way towards Mary Kay products & I will be wearing all these products more often -- will take better pictures to post.
MISSES: lip gloss and mascara
The lip gloss and mascara were duds for me. The lip gloss, although a pretty color, was too sticky. It also lost its pigmentation easily. When swatched on my arm it showed up, however on my lips not so much. As you can see in the photo, it does not look like an orange-red but now the same color as my lips. Does not have staying power either. It faded away within 30 mins to just a film over my lips. Not a fan! The mascara is a dud mainly because of the brush. It's my personal preference that I like the bigger, fluffier types of brushes instead of the hard spikey ones. The formula was very black, however it was clumping on my bottom lashes and I had to do a lot of clean up.
Overall these products totally changed my view on Mary Kay products and I most definitely will be buying products from them! Yes there were 2 misses for me, but as a whole I find this brand to be awesome! I never knew how much I'd love the bronzer and blush!
Disclosure: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.
