Review, Swatch & Tutorial: Mary Kay - Spring 2019 Collection*

This Spring, Mary Kay brings to you a whole variety of brand new make-up items to help with complexion and also to highlight the lips with either some nudes or bolder options like the lip tints! I have these items swatched for you below as well as using some items from the Spring 2019 collection to create an effortless and easy glam look for you all to see!

The Lip Tints ($21 each) come in 3 bold colors that apply like a dream with the fine marker tip. They last all day which is great so make sure you use precision when applying it. Even though it fades through the day, it leaves behind a tint (as you can see in the below arm swatch). They feel weightless on the lips, like water when you first apply it. You can always put a balm on first if you want a subtle sheen.

Moving onto complexion, we have the highlighting drops that retail for $25 each and come in a glass container and drop applicator. Make sure you shake the bottle very well before pushing down on the dropper to get the product to ensure that you get product (it does collect on the bottom of the bottle). This product is super pigmented and is blendable to either a sheer finish (as you can see below) or can be builded to give a blinding highlight. You can mix this in with your foundation which is one of my favorite ways or wearing it for the summer, mix it with your body lotion and applied to the shoulders, arms and legs/chest area, use it as an eyeshadow or obviously blotting it on the cheek/brow bones and wherever else you want to add some glow and highlight to. This product is so multipurpose so think outside the box when you use it. Being a liquid product too, you don't have to worry about it looking cakey or too powdery, so it actually works well on mature skin as well.

Next on the complexion product list, we have contour, highlight and colour correcting sticks (each retailing $17). These sticks are very impressive in my opinion as they glide onto the skin like butter, you barely have to put any pressure on it, and it delivers an even distribution of color onto the skin, as you can see in my video. The below arm swatches are also done with only one swipe. I would recommend that you do work fast after applying this onto the skin so that they buff out and not leave behind any harsh lines, it just makes things alot easier for yourself. I prefer using a synthetic brush to do so and I have no problems with it at all. 

Below you will find a tutorial of my effortless glam look using all items from Mary Kay Cosmetics. I have also labelled them within the video and included still images of the look close up! 

Overall, I do have to say that I am thoroughly impressed with this collection from Mary Kay. I have always been a fan about them and have written about them countless times before on the blog. It's hard to put my finger on what exactly is my favorite but I do think that you definitely cannot go wrong picking up one of the lip tints, highlighting drops and a contour stick! The contour stick really honestly impressed me with how effortlessly it blended out to look like second skin on my face.

Until next time, XO - M.
