MARY KAY PLAY COLLECTION: OVERVIEW AND REVIEW

 
My heart nearly skipped a beat when I opened up my latest Mary Kay PR Sample to find the most gorgeous collection I have seen in a long time. The beautiful hot pink and fluorescent green packaging paired with the holographic glitter string made me feel like I was at a carnival. Keep on reading to find out more about this stunning collection and the amazing products included in it.
 
"On The Horizon" Baked Eye Shadow Trio
This trio consists of a deep brown which is comparable to MAC sketch, a golden shimmery sand colour and a deep cranberry shade. This would look gorgeous with the gold on the cranberry on the lid, brown in the crease and gold on the brow.

"Tuxedo" Baked Eye Shadow Trio
The perfect three colours to create a smokey eye? Could this be the perfect little compact form to create the perfect glittery going out eye. You have your inner corner and brow bone highlight, then your outer lid colour then your deep crease colour. The perfect silver and black smokey eye in a compact form to get ready quickly for a night out.

"Ocean View" Baked Eye Shadow Trio
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with colour and blue looks especially amazing around this season, the name Ocean View does say it all. The first shade is a beautiful royal blue, the middle shade is the most gorgeous shimmery turquoise I have ever seen and then the neutral silver is thrown in there to make the look more wearable.

"Earth Bound" Baked Eye Shadow Trio
It feels like we're going back to Christmas time with this trio which consists of a gorgeous forest green, hazelnut and deep shimmery gold shade. Although this does remind me of the holiday season, these are colours that can be worn year round and would look exceptionally beautiful with a black or emerald coloured gown.

Verdict:
The colour selection of these trios is absolutely stunning, there is such variety in the colour groups and shades used. The consistency is smooth and blendable while the formulation ensures it's long lasting colour. I have had no issues with these Eyeshadows creasing or fading and at such an affordable price, these are a bargain for the amazing quality they are.

"Berry Me" Jelly Lipgloss
Who can go past a good glossy red lip, perfect for those days when you just don't have time for a high maintenance lip product. It's wearability and moisturising properties make it a handbag essential, for lazy days at uni or busy days running errands.

"Teddy Bare" Jelly Lipgloss
This next product is a similar story to "Berry Me" but the colour just isn't something I would wear. If you don't usually like wearing reds but instead something more natural then this is a great alternative to the other gloss while still providing moisture and colour.

Overall I would highly recommend this range as they are fantastic quality, have a great colour selection with lots of variety, a beautiful formulation and pigmentation as well as being an affordable product.

Thank you for reading.
