Mary Kay came out with cute makeup? Say what! Mary Kay has kind of been known to be quite "old lady"-ish. Recently they came out with a "At Play" line which is full of pretty packaging, bright colors and more youthful models. Obviously I was sold so I had to try a couple of items from the line! Not only do I love these new products by Mary Kay, I am actually looking forward to further releases from this line!
I'm not going to go full force into a review but I just wanted to mention a couple of key points. The Eye Crayon in Taupe is gorgeous. I knew as soon as I saw this item in the catalogue I had to pick it up. It was a little more expensive than I would like an ten dollars, but that is still pretty good compared to some higher end brands. The lasting power of this pencil is impressive as well, I love it as a base for neutral eye looks! I would be interested in checking out the color selection that they release in the future, and might even be tempted to purchase a few more!As for the eyeshadows I am just as impressed. I'm all about baked eyeshadows, because you can use them wet or dry. They are super pigmented, and blend super easily. I would have to say though that the color selection is a little childish. Purple, white and orange… The other option this season is a purple white and blue. I do think they could have added more of a variety, maybe a fun colorful palette and a neutral fresh looking palette or even a light pastel palette! I don't think I will be using all of these shadows together anytime… EVER. But I think for a pop of color these shadows are a nice go-to selection!
"Lightweight, ultracreamy texture glides on smoothly for intense, true-color payoff that doesn’t fade. Use as an eye shadow and as an eyeliner! Glides on smoothly and blends easily. Smearproof. Versatile and buildable – you choose the level of color intensity." - marykay.com
