Brand Focus: Mary Kay


Hey everyone,

I recently attended an event for a brand I knew little to nothing about- Mary Kay. That's definitely one of the perks of blogging, as I love discovering new brands! Believe it or not, Mary Kay have been around for over 50 years. The company was founded by Mary Kay Ash in 1963, and they're a direct sales company, meaning the products are sold by a consultant from door to door. They also sell their products online.

At the event I was lucky enough to try out some products, so I thought I'd write 3 mini reviews rather than writing them separately!

True Dimensions Lipstick*
First of all I just want to mention the packaging: I love how expensive everything looks, although the products do feel a bit plastic-y in your hands. I like how this lipstick pops out unlike most lipsticks! I received the shade 'wild about pink' and although it's not a shade I'd normally wear, I really like! It's quite sheer but that's why I like it, as it's quite natural, and very buildable. It's extremely creamy and moisturising too. The only thing I dislike about this lipstick is the wear time- it doesn't last long at all! At €18, it's a bit steep seeing as it came straight off my lips.

Ultimate Mascara*
I love this mascara! It really does give a lot of extra volume, without looking clumpy. The brush is nice and small so perfect for bottom lashes, and it doesn't smudge either. Score! €18

Sheer Dimensions Powder*
In all honesty, I find the term 'powder' in the title to be a tad misleading, as it's definitely a blush in my eyes. Names aside, this beautiful blush in the shade 'lace' is the perfect coral shade for Summer. It's not too bright, but gives a lovely natural glow on the face. I also love the 3D design, as it reminds of the Clinique blushers! Again, I find the price a bit high as the packaging is quite flimsy but it's still a gorgeous product. €26
