For years MaryKay has been offering a line of quality cosmetics and other beauty products to women that enjoy taking pride in their beauty routine.  Jaclyn, a sweet friend of mine from high school is embracing that as well and is now a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant.   Her Facebook page is here and the Mary Kay FB Group is here.  She always has such gorgeous makeup in her modeling photos so it’s no wonder she has chosen such a quality cosmetic company to work for.   

My thing when it comes to makeup is eye shadow.  I can’t stand if it comes off to easily, but I also can’t stand if the colors don’t look right on me, but I was extremely pleased when Jaclyn let me sample the new Mary Kay @Play Baked Eye Trios.   I received On The Horizon (purpley one) and Earthbound green one COLOR AND COLOR and I can not believe how great and vibrant the Earthbound color was when I apply them! 

I love shading, so the fact that you get three vibrant shades to coordinate together is perfect!  If I want to do contrasting colors or shading, this is perfect.    It’s so much more convenient to have it all together then to go out and get multiple eye shadows in all different colors from the stores.  

These left a great luminous glow on my eyes and they were very lightweight. They helped my eyes pop and they were super easy to apply.   It’s crease resistant too and that was a big dealbreaker for me because I always get creases after a few hours when I wear eyeshadow but not anymore! 

I love that you can change the intensity of your eyeshadow colors and if you just want to wear one of the shades, it still looks fine!

Please please check out Jaclyn’s Mary Kay website and consider building your beauty stock up through her!
