Make-up time! I haven't done a make-up post in a while now, so I was quite excited about this one. A few months ago Mary Kay sent me their At Play collection, and since them I've been having a good play around and getting used to them.
I think the best way to sum this collection up is FUN! When I first saw this collection it did remind me of some of the make-up collections I'd get in my free Go Girl magazine back in the 90s. There definitely is an element of nostalgia here. But then it dawned on me that there's no reason why adult make-up shouldn't be fun. The colours featured here are bright, but Mary Kay have carefully created shades that stand out whilst complementing an adult look.
All of these eyeliners look amazing with eyeshadows in complementing hues, but I thought I'd show you what they're like in their purest form.
Gold Metal: This shade really brightens up the eye and goes with absolutely everything. Perfect for
Christmas. I've tried it with a few pinky eye shadows too and it works so well.
The Real Teal: I'm not entirely sure if this shade of green suits my skin tone, as it is quite cool. However
this would look amazing on anyone with a paler complexion. It's a subtle burst of metallic colour.
Blue My Mind: This is the only matte shade out of the four, and I love it. It's so striking and dramatic. Make
this your statement piece of make-up, and make the rest of your face as bare as possible.
Hello Violet: This one is my ultimate favourite. With Halloween coming up I could see a lot of creative
potential, but at the same time, I thought it made such a nice change to the normal black eyeliner.
Feminine with a grunge twist.
These are perfect for those times when you just want a hint of colour on your lips. They're incredibly moisturising and smell amazing. I can see these making lovely
