This post is long overdue. I’ve been constantly working with Mary Kay Cosmetics for about 4 years now, and they’ve been sooo generous with me, they give me a lot of products to try out that I’m having a hard time using everything! Here are my top picks from this brand:
1. Timewise Liquid Foundation
Before, I find their yellow-based foundations still a bit too pink, but they got it right this time with their Timewise line. The shades have just the right amount of yellow in them, making them more Pinay friendly.
The concealers come in small tubes, but they’re uber pigmented and creamy so a little goes a long way.
3. Mineral Blush in Shy Blush and Strawberry Cream
These 2 cheek color shades are a staple in my bridal kit. The Shy Blush is a dead ringer of Nars Orgasm, and Strawberry Cream is just the right shade of pink that will make anyone look blushing. Both have just enough shimmer to have that much coveted glow.
4. Cream Eye Color in Pale Blush and Iced Cocoa
Cream form + powder finish = No creases! Pale Blush and Iced cocoa are perfect for everyday natural look.
5. Creme Lipstick in Hibiscus
For those blah days or when you’re just lazy to put on full makeup, just swipe on this puta pink shade and you’ll instantly feel pretty and made up!
6. Timewise Moisture Renewing Gel Mask
When I tried it out, my face was so touchably soft and smooth after, it really is a moisture miracle in a tube. It instantly hydrates, softens, and smoothens the skin, and is great for all skin types. Mary Kay has great skin care products, and this is definitely one of my favorites so far.
Mary Kay Cosmetics is a direct selling brand, so it’s available thru their Beauty Consultants. Go here for more details or if you are interested in selling them.
I love getting clients from all over the world, and Irene is my first one that’s based in Dublin, Ireland. She’s actually already married to her husband years ago, but they decided to go home and have a bonggang church wedding last year. Looking at the photos, who knew that she already has two kids? Irene certainly looks like a newlywed to me!
