I FINALLY saw my BFF after not seeing her for over a year. I’m the godmother to both of her beautiful sons, and last weekend was the baby’s baptism. We went out and had some time to spend together, and she gave me a bag full of stuff (including a framed photo that I love- check out her photoblog here). Inside of the goody bag were some samples from Mary Kay, so I put a couple of them to good use!
Basically this look is the type of thing I wear on a daily basis.
Mary Kay Time Wise Matte Foundation in Beige 2
Hourglass powder in Dim Light
Bobbi Brown Sandstone Shimmerbrick
Mary Kay Mineral Blush in Spiced Cider
Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadow in Espresso
Urbay Decay Snakebite eyeshadow (Naked 2)
Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadow in Honey Spice
Physicians Formula 2-in-1 Lash Boosting liner
Rimmel Lash Extension mascara
MAC Boy Bait Cremesheen Glass
I LOVE the mineral blush. I had just enough in the sample for both cheeks, not enough for a swatch unfortunately. It’s really soft and it blends so easily. I am definitely going to buy this color the next time I place a Mary Kay order. Espresso, the eyeshadow I had a sample of, is a beautiful matte coffee brown. It’s quite dark; it seems to look darker on the lid than it did in the sample.
The Mary Kay matte foundation is actually one that I purchased awhile ago. I have been wearing it frequently this fall and really like it. It’s not too heavy, and the price point is good too: $20!
My BFF tells me that the winter lookbook shadows are super cute, so I can’t wait to see what they look like!
Do you have any Mary Kay favorites? I think this brand is underrated! 🙂
