Mary Kay Cream Eye Shadows*

mk1

I'm a pretty big fan of Mary Kay products, so I had high hopes for the new Mary Kay Cream Eye Shadows when they arrived on my doorstep. Like all other Mary Kay products, these products were dressed to impress with their chic packaging.

Violet Storm, Meadow Grass, Coastal Blue, Glacier Gray
I received four of the new colours that have been released in Australia. I was delighted to see some very unique shades, so I couldn't wait to try them out. At first glance, I fell in love with Glacier Gray, as it seemed the most wearable shade for every day use.

Violet Storm, Meadow Grass, Coastal Blue, Glacier Gray

The above swatches are without primer and in natural light As you can see, they are fairly pigmented and have a beautiful metallic finish. Although Glacier Gray is a gorgeous colour, it is the least pigmented, but is definitely improved with the use of an eyeshadow primer. I loved the three other colours, they came out looking so bright and pretty. 


In terms of longevity, I found they lasted all day long with very minimal creasing. As I said above, their performance is obviously improved with an eyeshadow primer, but it wasn't necessary.

Overall I was really impressed with the Mary Kay Cream Eye Shadows. The colours were stunning and the quality was excellent. You can purchase these shades from the Mary Kay website for only $24 each.

Have you tried the Mary Kay Cream Eye Shadows yet? If so, what are your thoughts? Which colour is your favourite?

  4. How stunning is violet storm?!!! I need it!

    These sound great, I love a good cream shadow, they work brilliantly as a quick swipe when you're in a rush, and are great bases for intense looks too!
