There are some new really lovely neutral Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color($8) shades that were released for summer 2014 that I kind of forgot about. Not sure why, but I guess because they’re neutrals. I’m more of a colour girl when it comes to eyeshadows, in case you haven’t noticed haha. 😀
But these new neutral Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color shades are pretty darn nice! Mary Kay’s mineral-based formula is famous for its oil-absorbing properties actually. These are probably some of the longest lasting eyeshadows on my dastardly oily lids that I’ve ever tried. Most of the time when I wear eyeshadows I have to double prime, but not with these babies!
Three mattes and 2 shimmer shades as you can see. The mattes are nice, but need a bit of care to ensure they don’t blend away too much. A stickier primer like a cream eyeshadow base would work best if you want to wear them packed on the lids. But oh, they work so well in the crease! Especially Driftwood-that shade is just gorgeous and a perfect crease/transition shade. Ballerina Pink is really pretty as a brow highlight! Really warms up the neutral browns. And Rosegold is just gorgeous. I have a real soft spot for rose gold ANYTHING, and if you’re like me you’d love the shade as well! And the Stone is a really pretty grey that stays grey and doesn’t turn blue. I do think it’s better as a crease shade, or an outer V shade rather than a lid shade though. But dang, I like a pink and grey eye look I have to say! It’s not a colour combo I wear that often, but I will from now on.
These new Neutral Mary Kay Mineral Color shades come in individual cases just like all the other Mary Kay mineral eyeshadows do when you order them, and you can buy a compact that holds 6 shadows if you wish. I just put them in a little Z pallete since they already have a magnet on the back of them and that works just as well.
You can order these New Neutral Mary Kay Mineral Color shades from your local Mary Kay Rep or online at www.marykay.ca.
Neutrals are great to have around! Especially in the summer when it’s so much fun to wear a bright lipstick. Who makes your favourite neutral eyeshadows?
*products sent by the lovely PR for review, thoughts are mine as always! 😀 As is my rekindled love for grey eyeshadow. There’s just something about grey that’s really appealing to me. It’s dark, mysterious, rainy, dreary…yet sophisticated and looks good on everybody I think.
