Mary Kay Event

I went to a Mary Kay Event* a few weeks ago and had tons of fun! I got to try new products and a new look. Here's a detailed look at my experience! (Keep reading to learn how to save 10% off of your first purchase and a free facial/color!)

The first thing we did was take "before" pics. These were of our faces 100% makeup free!

Me before...such a bad pic lol

The point was to be able to visualize the transformation. After taking pictures the fun part started. First we used the Timewise 3 in 1 Cleanser ($18) to give our faces a good cleansing. The cleanser comes in different skin types (oily, dry, and combination). I have dry skin so my cleanser had little beads in it. Jo has combination skin so hers was smooth. I felt that the cleanser did a good job of removing all of the dead dry skin and prepping my face for the makeup.

The next step was the Timewise Age Fighting Moisturizer ($22). I really enjoyed the moisturizer. With having dry skin it sometimes takes a lot of product to get moisture back into it especially during the winter. After using it my skin felt revitalized and rehydrated.

Then we moved on to prime our skin with the foundation primer ($16). I always use primers before applying my makeup because it helps it go on really smooth. This primer did exactly that. I can't say that I love it more than my current primer because to be honest I can't really tell a difference between them.

After priming our skin we went ahead and applied our foundation with the Timewise Luminous Wear Foundation ($20). Let me tell you, a little of this foundation goes a longgggg way! This foundation worked just as well as my current foundation, but I found that it matched my skin tone better. Also, I think I might have to give this one a try because it'll probably last longer than my current one.

Once our foundation was done we moved on to our color cards. The cards had 3 different mineral eyeshadow colors, one mineral blush color, and creme one lipstick. My color card was called Berries. The eyeshadow colors were: moonstone, steel, and sweet plum. I had never really experimented with those colors before but I loved the result. I did have to apply primer to my eyelids previous to application of the shadows, but I have to do that with all shadows so it was no biggie. A cool thing about the card was that it told you exactly where to apply all three colors. That really helped me out a lot!

My blush color was called bold berry and it was bold! I actually had to do a lot of blending to tame it down a bit. But once I did that it looked great. Finally, I got to apply the lipstick! I've been dying to try new colors and this was the perfect opportunity. My lipstick color was whipped berries. It was like a deep pinkish purple color. Oh, I totally forgo to mention that we also used the Lash Love Mascara in Blakc ($15). I wasn't really impressed with it and will be sticking with my current mascara instead.

Overall, it was a great experience. It was a way for me to get out of my comfort zone and try some new colors. Now I'm not afraid to incorporate those colors into my looks!

After pics!! 

Yes, we stole this from Instagram :)

Me and my friend Jo at the event

My favorite products:

Mary Kay Oil-Free Makeup Remover
Price: $15
Why I like it: It's a bit expensive for my taste, however, it works wonders. I came to the event with thick eye makeup on and needed to remove all of it. It didn't take a lot of the product to remove makeup and it did not irritate my eyes at all. My skin felt soft afterwards. I love it.

Satin Lips Set (Satin Lips Mask & Satin Lips Lip Balm)
Price: $18 or $9.50 each
Why I like it: The lip mask did a wonderful job of removing all of the dead skin from my lips. After using it my lips no longer felt cracked or dry. Using the lip balm after the mask made my lips feel incredibly smooth and hydrated. What's nice about it is that it is fragrance free and does not have a taste to it. It's perfect to apply before your lipstick or lipgloss as a base.

Peach Satin Hands Pampering Set (Hand softener, Hand scrub, Hand cream)
Price: $34
Why I like it: First of all, I love the smell. It has a light peachy smell which is awesome! This 3 piece set would be a wonderful addition to any hand care routine. The hand softener does just what the name says. It softens your hands and hydrates them before the second step. The hand scrub is the second step and it does it great job scrubbing all of the dead skin away. The only thing I didn't like was that it took a while for me to get it all off of my hands, but I may have just used too much. The last step is the hand cream. It was so light and creamy! It made my hands feel so soft and smooth!
