Mary Kay Summer 2017 Collection

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.

Mary Kay Summer 2017 CollectionThe 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.

Mary Kay Summer 2017 CollectionFrom 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!

Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection: Glossy Lip Oils

Mary Kay, Review
Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection: Glossy Lip Oils

With the weather going from cold to warm and then back to cold again, I’m always in need of hydration, especially on my lips. I especially like wearing products that have a bit of colour to them so I can tackle both my need for colour and something to treat my dry, chapped lips all at once. The Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection‘s Glossy Lip Oils are a fun hybrid that offer both colourful shine and conditioning moisture.

Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection: Glossy Lip Oils

The Glossy Lip Oil’s are a new and innovative product for Mary Kay because they provide a comfortable application that’s non-sticky and gives your lips luminous shine. They’re infused with grape seed, avocado, and jojoba oils so they will quench your lips to the max with tons of moisture and they come in three shades.

Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection: Glossy Lip Oils

I ♥ Mary Kay!
Top Row from L-R: Brilliant Violet – pale lilac, Sheer Pink – sheer pale pink
Bottom: Magenta Ray – rosy magenta pink

My Thoughts:

My lips feel really soft and conditioned when wearing these lip oils during and even after they’ve come off. They’re very lightweight, not sticky and feel really comfortable, plus they smell really nice. The applicator lets you squeeze out as much colour as you want and the tube will allow you to get to every last drop of it. The colours hold enough pigment without being too bold, so anyone would feel comfortable wearing them and Sheer Pink has just a hint of colour so that will make extreme colour-phobes happy. I love Brilliant Violet and Magenta Ray for their, obviously, beyond pretty colours, but I also enjoy wearing Sheer Pink as a bedtime treatment.So, all in all, I love this kind of lip treatment because of the colour I get with them and how they turn my lizard lips into soft, smooth, and non-flaky pillows.

Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection: Eye Color Palettes Review

What’s one way to get out of a winter slump? Be greeted by a bunch of pretty spring makeup collections! It’s one of those things that always seems to lift my spirits when I get my hands on pretty pastels and vibrant colours that just scream spring time. The new Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection is jam packed with candy coloured hues and today I will be reviewing the Eye Color Palettes that are part of the collection.

Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection: Eye Color Palettes Review

The new limited edition palettes offer unexpected colour combinations featuring 4 glistening shades that can be worn on their own or combined to create a luminous ombre effect. The lightweight eyeshadows are smudge-proof, fade and crease resistant so they’re perfect for anyone that’s constantly on-the-go and wants vibrant colour that lasts.

Top Row from L-R: matte pale lavender, matte pale sky blue

Mary Kay Spring 2017 Light, Reinvented Collection: Eye Color Palettes ReviewSunlight Eye Color Palette
Top Row from L-R: matte light bubblegum pink, matte white
Bottom Row from L-R: shimmery pale beige, shimmery light peachy orange

My Thoughts:

The colour combinations in both palettes is gorgeous and exactly what I would wear anytime, but especially in the spring. The Glistening Horizon palette was a little disappointing because the matte pale lavender and blue shadows were quite sheer and difficult to work with. In order to get them to look vibrant, I have to apply a white base underneath and pat them on top with a stiff, flat brush. Aside from those shadows, everything else performed and showed up without any issues. I like the combination of matte and shimmering shades in both palettes and you can put them in and switch them out of any Mary Kay eyeshadow compact case or magnetic palette, which I like using to bring multiple colours and products with me in one palette. If you like fun, punchy colours that are a mix of mattes and shimmers, then you’ll enjoy these palettes!
