Favorite Mary Kay Products

Mary Kay is such an under-rated cosmetic
line!  They have fabulous products that
wear high end.  They have so many different
products for everyone's taste!  Here are my favorites:

Satin Lips:  This set comes with one gritty walnut paste that gently exfoliates your lips.  You lightly apply and let it set for about 10 minutes.  Gently wipe off with a wet washcloth.  The second tube is most excellent balm that soaks into your freshly exfoliated lips.  Talk about hours of hydration!  This set has been my favorite for as long as I can remember!

TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser:  This creamy cleanser exfoliates, cleanses, and refreshens in 1 step!  My skin is smooth, clean, and glows after using this gem of a cleanser  (not to mention it fights signs of aging!!).  My skin can be kind of sensitive with anti-aging cleansers but my skin LOVED this one!!

Creme Lipstick:  Mary Kay has truly outdone themselves with these lipsticks! They have an excellent color selection, a great selection of "finishes" (matte, satin, frost, and shimmer), and great packaging.  These have great longevity, look beautiful on, and really hydrate.  I don't like when lipsticks 'settle' into the lines on my lips and these don't do that!  Now, with that being said these lipsticks don't have the best "taste" in the world. It has improved over the years, but still isn't great.  Mary Kay, Inc., if your listening, vanilla flavor would be great!

Creme To Powder Foundation:  This foundation is nothing short of spectacular in my opinion!  It covers my flaws, makes my face look flawless, gives medium to full coverage, comes in a variety of colors, doesn't oxidize on my face, and really gives a natural matte finish.  This foundation is extremely affordable, too!  The foundation comes in a square, magnetized slate and you must purchase a mini-compact to place the foundation in.  If you decide not to repurchase the foundation, then you can put Mary Kay eye shadows or blushes in it!  Very handy little container!

Mineral Eye Color Bundles:  These bundles take the guess work out of "what colors look good with my eye color?"!  The colors are bundled together by eye color.  The bundles to choose from are:  Beautiful Brown, Brilliant Blue, Gorgeous Green, and Hypnotic Hazel.  I love Mary Kay mineral eye shadows because they have a beautiful color selection, are long wearing, and blend like a dream!

Drugstore Treasures

These are just some of my favorite drugstore gems that make you look fantastic without breaking your purse!

* Almay Truly Lasting Foundation (TLC):  this foundation gives 16 hours of medium to full coverage.  The coverage leaves your face flawless, and stays put all day..even in the humid climate! $7.99-$13.99
* Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks:  these are my favorite lipsticks EVER!  They are moisturizing, have a wonderful finish, are super affordable, and come in a great variety of colors! $5.97-$8.47

*Cover Girl Cheekers or Classic Blush:  these blushes are fantastic!  I adore the finish these blushes give.  Lots of colors at a great price!  The finishes are slightly shimmery which gives the face a great "pick me up"!  $3.00-$5.00

*Almay One Coat Mascara:  this mascara is perfect to plump and separate the lashes!  This mascara gives my lashes the life they need to look awesome!  This mascara didn't flake, or burn my eyes.  It comes in black, and brown/black.  $5.97-$6.97

*Milani Retractable Eyeliner:  this eyeliner goes on smooth and lasts all day!  Love Milani's color selection in these because there is plenty to choose from.  Not every store carries Milani products, but they can be found at Walgreens and CVS.  $3.97-$6.97

AVON Dramatic Firming Cream

Have you ever used a product for a while, and all of a sudden you actually "see" the difference?
This is what AVON's Dramatic Firming Cream
did for me!  I used it for about 2 weeks religiously
and not expecting much I might add.....
I woke up one morning and felt my skin, it was
tighter and felt taut. There was no way
this could be my skin!!  I looked in the mirror and
it even looked tighter. Super giddy!!
This is, by far, one of the BEST creams I have ever used
on my skin!  It really does do what it says it's
going to do....firm your skin!

AVON Satin Satisfaction Lip Color

My favorite lipsticks are those that really hydrate
and don't crease on your lips.  One such lip color
is AVON's new Satin Satisfaction Lip Color.

This lip color goes on like silk, and hydrates your
lips like a lip balm.  They come in a range of colors that almost any skin tone can wear.  These last for a
long time, don't dry my lips out, and makes them feel, satin!
