Haul: Mary Kay




I recently hosted a Mary Kay party with my big sister in my sorority as the consultant (I wrote a post about the party here). It was a blast to hang out and talk about makeup! I made a few purchases and after just a week they were delivered! I thought about filming a video, but then decided just to write a post about them on here instead.


I'm a huge fan of Benefit's "That Gal" Face Primer (Review of it here) so it definitely means something that I purchased Mary Kay's Foundation Primer. I really liked the consistency of the product (thick but not too thick and applies really nicely) and that it's considerably cheaper than Benefit's Face Primer. I haven't really bothered to look into other primers, but I thought it was time to give "That Gal" some competition. I'm excited to see which one wins out. I'll be giving full reviews of all the products after I've used them more.


 We had the chance to apply this foundation during the party and after I got over the shock of being the absolute lightest shade (I am SO pale!) I really liked this foundation. I don't usually wear foundation to begin with because my skin really doesn't need it and I don't want heavy coverage. Powder foundations have always intrigued me as a good alternative to liquid foundation, but I've never had the chance to play around with one. I'm definitely looking forward to using this product.


I've been on the hunt for a new blush for quite some time now and my party seemed like the perfect time to pick one up. I knew I was already buying things so I thought "what the hell!" I tried to stay away from my go-to coral choice and pick this baby pink color. It has a lot of micro gold shimmer in it which I think will look really good in the summer to give me more of a summer glow. 


The next two products we also got to try out during the party and I fell in love. I've just recently gotten more into skin care and religiously cleaning my makeup off at the end of the day. This cleanser is incredibly gentle on the skin and is just an overall strong cleanser from my first experience. I'm not entirely sure what three things it does in one, but the package talks about clearing away impurities, erasing visible signs of aging, and restoring the look of younger skin. I'm guessing those are the three things...and I'm a fan of already starting to reduce the effects of aging. It'll be interesting to see how it fends after repeat use.


I bought this product in a set with the 3-in-1 Cleanser and love this product just as much. I'm glad to have a cleanser and moisturizer in the same brand. I'm not sure why that seems to make a difference to me but I just envision them working together with magic fairy dust or something. I've only used a drugstore brand moisturizer in the past so I'm eager to try something new!


I'm watching my parents' dogs for the week while they're in California and Jacobi kept me company while I did my product shots. Such a beautiful dog!
