Brand Exploration

A friend of mine who I adore recently started selling Mary Kay ... so being the friend I am and because it takes all of about two ounces of pressure for me to buy makeup I bought a compact with some colours and a lipgloss. First of all ... I had a bit of sticker shock ... $68 for three shadows, a highlight powder, the compact and the gloss ... not sure why it surprised me that MK was so much but it did.

Anyways ... I digress. This is the look I can do with the compact. I LOVE the lipgloss colour ... and texture ... and smell ... LOVE LOVE LOVE the lipgloss. I love the shadow texture too ... just wish I had picked out a darker blue ... but that is not he makeup's fault.


All tools are MAC unless otherwise listed. MK = Mary Kay

  1. Ooh pretty!! I used to buy Mary Kay, but I stopped a long time ago because it was too expensive for me.


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
