Mary Kay® products are sold in more than 35 markets worldwide, and the company’s global independent sales force is approximately 3 million strong.
I recently started trying some Mary Kay products and figured I would review some stuff that I have bought. I have tried all kinds of different brands and products over the years trying to find the best products for decent prices so have of course had my fair share of stuff that just didn’t make the cut and things that were ok but not great. I came to realize that as with most things if you want quality you will have to spend a bit more. Of course there are products out there that are of great quality for a steal of a price but in the overall picture you generally get what you pay for.
Mary Kay Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss: I am not generally a huge lip gloss person and normally when I do get any its a very faint pink color or just a clear gloss. I decided to give this one a try off of a recommendation and am so glad I did. It is literally my new go to when I do my makeup now. It gives a tint of color to my lips without being too much and I love to keep it simple as far as makeup goes unless its a special occasion so this is perfect for that. This lip gloss costs $15 and you can find it here if you want to check it out! It may seem like a bit too much but I assure you that you are getting a whole different level of quality when you spend a bit more on this. It is completely worth the price in my opinion.
Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trio: I got this one in Neapolitan and now I plan to buy all of the others as well. This has basically been my favorite thing ever since I got it and I use it any time I wear eye shadow. You can do so much with it from layering with other colors to creating a unique smokey eye that stands out. They have several different color combos to choose from too so the possibilities with this are endless. The colors are subtle yet still give you that pop of color with just the right amount of shimmer. This gem costs $13 and can be found here.
Overall I am just in love with these products. At first I was a little hesitant because I didn’t want to spend big bucks on makeup, but I am so glad that I chose to give it a shot and try something new.
