This summer, 90s influenced makeup is still going strong with lots of browns and earthy tones showing up in tons of collections. But, there’s still tons of shimmer to go around! Mary Kay took the summer’s best on trend shades and brought them together for their Summer 2017 collection.
The Limited Edition Summertime Jewel Look is comprised of soft, warm and sultry shades featuring three mineral eye colours in Sweet Cream, Hazelnut and Emerald, a mineral cheek colour in Sunny Spice, an eyeliner in MK Black, and a Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick in Mauve Moment. The set retails for $89 and has a $97 value.
From R-L: Sweet Cream – pale cream beige, Hazelnut – medium chocolate brown, Emerald – light-medium pear green, Sunny Spice – beige pink
Limited Edition Summertime Jewel Look‘s ($23) come in two shades – Giving Heart, a rosy pink, and Kind Heart, a pale peach that can be used as a highlighter. The purchase of each Baked Cheek Powder benefits the Mary Kay Foundation and its support of women’s shelters and survivors of domestic abuse.
My Glittery Thoughts:
The stand outs for me in this collection are the Beauty That Counts Baked Cheek Powders. They are gorgeous and make my skin glow which is exactly what I want in a summer look. The compact is a cute little set that’s good for travelling and the shades can be popped out and switched with other eyeshadows or blushes. I would’ve liked to see the Emerald shade be a bit brighter and more pigmented since it is pretty light. However, if you’re a fan of neutrals, you will like the addition of the green because it acts like a neutral. The lipstick is a pretty shade of mauvy pink that has a creamy feel that isn’t matte but is very comfortable to wear. If you’re looking for a set of everything you would need to create an modern 90’s look, the Summertime Jewel Look set is a great option. But if you love your shimmers and anything that glows, I would highly recommend the baked cheek powders!
