I signed up for influenster a while ago but was most recently contacted that I had been chosen to receive samples (complimentary) from Mary Kay® and in exchange write my review on the products. I have never tried this makeup before but I have heard good things from others that I know who have tried the products. I received the following items:
- Mary Kay® Lash Love Lengthening mascara in I ❤ Black ($15)
- Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush ($10)
- Mary Kay® Lash Primer ($15)
- Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm ($22)
- Mary Kay® True Dimensions Lip Stick in Pink Cherie ($18)
I have been buying a lot of makeup lately since I’m still only 11 weeks postpartum and buying makeup is a lot more fun than clothes these days. I’m working on getting my pre-baby body back but until that day its fun to feel pretty and feminine with new makeup. Please note that all of the opinions below are my own.
Mary Kay® Lash Love Lengthening mascara in I ❤ Black
This is a great mascara with very fine bristles to create little to no clumping. I love the long wand and the color is great too for day or night.
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush
This is a great brush with nice bristles that seem to hold well. I only used it with the cream eye shadow and I liked the way the product went on. I still need to try it as a concealer brush, however I already have a concealer brush I like so I’m not very likely to use it for that purpose.
Mary Kay® Lash Primer
I had never used a primer for my lashes before trying this one. I like it but I didn’t love it, not sure I would pay an extra $15 plus the added time to add this into my beauty routine. However, that being said, it didn’t make a slight difference in the appearance of the mascara.
Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm
This was my first experience with cream eye color. I love purple so right from the beginning I was excited to try this product. I like the way it went on my eyes but I’m not sure I would go for this over traditional powder eye colors. I think I’d need a little more experience with this type of makeup. Overall I thought it was a good product.
Mary Kay® True Dimensions Lip Stick in Pink Cherie
Overall this was my favorite item I received from Mary Kay®; I loved this color and would have never expected to love it so much. It’s fun for summer and very trendy right now. I include a picture below of me wearing it along with very simple ‘summertime’ makeup.
