My Beauty Play Date with Mary Kay

Last week I had a makeup play date with my new favorite Mary Kay Consultant, Curtrice. I can’t believe how much fun I had testing, trying and playing with the new colors and the Mary Kay at Play line. It’s funny because I was not a huge Mary Kay fan because the brand did not appeal to me. I tried it years ago and it was just…blah and it never occurred to me to try it again until I met a consultant by the name of Curtrice.

During our makeup play date, she showed me the new colors, trends and the at play line. The colors are vibrant, fresh and exciting. The application was smooth, the eye shadows did not crease and the staying power was long lasting!!! I enjoyed the products so much that I purchased a few 🙂

My favorite product so far has to be the Lash Love Mascara in Plum. It offers a different option to the normal black or brown colors. It helps my brown eyes sparkle just a little bit more and it extends the length just a little bit more.

I also have a fondness for the Mary Kay at Play Eye Crayon in Purple Smoke.  It’s a multifunctional product and we all know how much I love products that have 2 or more functions…LOL. You can use this as a liner or smudge it into a shadow. The color is very soft purple with a hint of silver/gray smoke. It glides on very easy and has great staying power.  I liked it so much that I purchased 2 of them.

I must say that I am pleasantly surprised with my Mary Kay products. I also purchased some skincare but I have not had a chance to try it out. But, when I do…a review will be following!!! LOL. This just goes to show that even if a brand does not appeal to you or if you don’t like a few products…it doesn’t mean the whole brand is not worth a try. If it were not for Curtrice, I don’t think that I would have tried the products again. Thank you Curtrice for all of your help and excellent customer service!!!

Report Card Review for Nourishine Lip Gloss Plus by Mary Kay

I received this lip-gloss in a swag bag for an event that I attended a few months ago and I just used it a few weeks ago.
I realize that Mary Kay has a loyal following that has been around for years but I have never been one of them. I tried Mary Kay years ago and let’s just say…it did not work for me. So, I have been hesitant to try anything since then.
The gloss sat in my give away pile until one day I was all packed ready to leave for the airport and I could not find a lip-gloss insight except for the NouriShine and I thought what the hell…I might as well.
I was skeptical because my first thought was it would be sticky and have some type of perfumery smell. To my surprise it was moisturizing, it was not sticky, it gave shine and it felt good!!!
The two things I did not like is the color. The Café au Lait was a bit sheer for me seeing as though red is my signature color. I also wish it would have lasted a little longer.
Lesson learned here is…just because a few products don’t work for you a few years ago, doesn’t mean that the entire line is the same!!! I give the Mary Kay NouriShine Lip Gloss 4 out of 5 smooches…MUAH. You can purchase this gloss for $14 on Marykay.com or find a local rep.
