Getting My Pretty On With Mary Kay

I've never been one to spend hours fixing my hair or doing my make-up. However, with life as busy as it is, these days I feel lucky to slap on some eye liner and mascara before calling it good enough. I used to buy fancy cosmetics and spend hours getting my hair foiled, but these days??? Not so much. The spirit was willing, but the pocketbook and available time were weak! Needless to say, I was more than a little excited when Mary Kay offered to send BlogHer members sample products to try.

This is the Compact Mini, which holds three eye shadows (Mineral Eye Color Bundle) and blush. The shadows and blush are in little magnetic trays that pop into the compact, and then the upper part of the compact can be lifted to reveal a compartment for the applicators. I love this little compact! It is cute (requirement number one), refillable (requirement number two) and not too big that I can't toss it in my purse for touch-ups.

As for the make-up, I have only this to say: I'd forgotten that I have cheekbones. I haven't used blush in so long, it's ridiculous. Shame on me! I have depriving the world of the opportunity to view my cheekbones in stunning color. :-) Seriously, people... there's a reason blush exists. And the eye colors have been fun, too. Mary Kay has created Eye Color Bundles to make it easy to find the right color combinations, so I don't have to stare at the catalog and figure out what colors will look best. (I always wimp out and choose shades of brown anyway, so it's nice to have someone else tell me I need to add a pop of color.)

Mary Kay is hanging out on Facebook these days, so be sure to check out what's new and nifty. Orders can be placed through the website or with individual reps (I bet you know someone who sells Mary Kay). You, too, can have cheekbones again!
