Mary Kay Made My Day


With the summer behind us I can finally let go of my face panic. For those of you gals lucky enough to not pour sweat all the way through the hot months let me explain what face panic is. Face panic is when you want to/ need to put on makeup (for whatever reason) and you realize you CAN NOT because the minute you step outside of your air conditioned wonderland all the makeup will melt off your face.

When the temperature rises above 80 I go into face panic and it does a number on my self esteem. This isn’t to say that I hang all of my dreams onto a madeup face, but good grief does it make a day better when someone tells you that you look nice. And I always look better when I have a bit of makeup on.

When BlogHer asked me if I wanted to try out some new Mary Kay goodies I said YES because I knew we were finally entering into the season of mascara. I have tried out Mary Kay items before and presented you guys with a pretty straightforward review. This time I wanted to bring you more into the experience. It’s one thing for someone to say, “It made my eyes go BLAM!” but another thing altogether for you to see the BLAM happen.

he first video is to show you how simple the Mary Kay TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set is. It has seriously been great to slough off dead skin (yuk).

This next video illustrates how, with just a few steps, I went from meh to MEOW!
The products I use in the video are:
• Mineral Eye Color in vanilla and Lavender Fog
• Lash Primer (this stuff is a game changer)
• Ultimate Mascara in black
• Mineral cheek color in Shy Blush
• Nourishine lip gloss in Mango Tango

It takes me less than 3 minutes (bonus: this is also how long W will sit and eat a bowl of cereal at breakfast) and I feel a million times more capable of facing the world.

So here is the cool moment: I’m not just sharing my thoughts on these products with you. BlogHer wants you to be able to try out these products too. How about a sweepstakes?
