Mother's Day Gifts From Mary Kay! #Giveaway




Anybody still looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift? I can't believe how fast this year has gone; seems like we were just celebrating the new year, and now it's already almost Mother's Day! However, there's no need to frantically search for the perfect gift for your mom, because Mary Kay has got you covered!



I received a sampling of products from Mary Kay for review, and I thoroughly enjoyed trying them all. My box of goodies contained TimeWise Matte Foundation, Mineral Highlighting Powder, Brush Cleaner, Brush Collection, Makeup Finishing Spray, and the new Zen in Bloom collection! I have to admit, I'm not a huge makeup fan. Most times it just looks fake, and it's very obvious that you're wearing makeup. If I choose to wear anything, I want it to look natural, and not the first thing people notice about me! I really enjoy all of these new products though, and love how it looks natural.


The TimeWise Matte Wear Foundation is simply amazing. It blends right into my skin, and provides a great cover. It quickly transforms your skin from dull and lifeless to beautiful, and lasts all day. The Mineral Highlighting Powder comes in 2 shade sets, and I received the Pink Stardust. This is a duo, with Pink Stardust Shimmer, and Shimmer, which is a shimmery white. This can be used for eyeliner, or as an all-over highlight. I prefer using it for a facial "glow", and love that you decide how bright or obvious it is. Especially with having 2 shades to work with, you can create a custom shade to fit your needs.
The Makeup Spray is really the perfect finishing touch, as it keeps your makeup looking fresh for hours on end. You might think this would make removal harder, but it really doesn't! It dries quickly, and is so lightweight you don't even know it's there-except for the fact that your makeup still looks freshly applied hours later! Here are before-and-after shots, just using the TimeWise Foundation, Mineral Highlighting Powder, and Finishing Spray.

Before
After

The Zen in Bloom Collection comes in a cute little clutch, and includes the Garden Sky Eye Color, Blue Lotus and Pink Bamboo Nail Lacquer, and Pink Pagoda Lip Lacquer. I usually don't use anything around the eyes, but I did apply some just to try it out. I like that I can add some shimmer and highlights without a bright, bold, "look-at-me" kind of look. It's very pretty and feminine, and is perfect for spring colors! 


The nail lacquers both make me think of spring too. I wasn't sure how I would like blue fingernails, as I usually opt for a pale pink, but to my surprise, I think they look nice! And, to complete the look, add a touch of spring shine to your lips with the Pink Pagoda Lip Lacquer. This is a lighter shade that can be deepened by adding more layers. It really adds shine and depth to your lips!
