The Sunday Spot #25 – Chicwish and a Mary Kay Review!

If you haven’t noticed, my current obsession is Chicwish. I’ve worn a few of their items here and here, and could not be more impressed. I love how beautiful and unique each piece is and the quality is outstanding. Both pieces I ordered came packaged neatly and 1. looked just like the photos and 2. were made of high quality fabric. What’s even better? The prices are super affordable! I’m hooked. It’s my newest site to check daily as they always have new arrivals! Check out a few of the items I’m currently craving and head over to Chicwish to check out the rest!

A few weeks ago, I received these samples of Mary Kay courtesy of Influenster. I’ve been trying them out since and here are my thoughts…

Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara ($15) : I really love the volume this mascara gives me. It definitely gives more than the average drugstore mascara! I also love that it stays on all day. I had no ‘melting’ issues that occasionally occur with other mascaras I’ve used. Cons? A little clumpy, but after perfecting the technique (slowly applying) I did not have this issue!

Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist ($14) : I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It’s a beautiful color with just the right amount of shimmer. It glides on and STAYS, which is something I must have in an eyeshadow! I would definitely purchase this product again!

Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush ($12) : This is a really beautiful glowy color. I loved the way it looks on, it’s definitely very natural. I like a little bit brighter of blush, but love the formula and how it looks when applied! 

Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder ($16): This product has become my new BFF. I have oily skin and by the end of the day, my face is usually pretty shiny. An application of this product after putting on all of my makeup was like a magic trick. I saw way less shine and it allowed my makeup to stay fresh all day. There were a few times I even applied this during the middle of the day and it allowed me to not have to re-do any of my makeup…I love that! 

Mary Kay Gel Eyeliner with Expandable Brush Applicator in Jet Black ($18): This eyeliner is pretty awesome. It goes on amazingly well, and definitely gives the intense vibe you crave when going with a cat-eyed or smokey look! I’m not a huge eyeliner girl, and usually just stick to lining my upper lid, but this definitely gave me a new perspective! 

Mary Kay Bronzing Powder ($18): This bronzer is also a new favorite of mine. It perfectly settles in to your skin to give you that sun kissed look you crave without looking orange. It’s the perfect natural looking bronzer and I would definitely purchase this again! 

Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Glos in Mango Tango ($14): This product completely changed my idea of lip gloss. I have never been that into lip gloss, since the days of middle school and the uber shiny glosses ruined my view. I don’t like lipgloss that looks like you could see your reflection in it or is super sticky. This product is awesome. I loved the color, loved the perfect amount of shine and LOVED THAT IT ISN’T STICKY. New favorite. 

Mary Kay Brushes: Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush ($10) and Cheek Brush ($14): Both brushes have the one quality I look for…softness. If I am using a brush on my face, it has to be soft! I loved that both of these were incredibly soft and applied the product nicely!

Overall, I am pretty impressed with these products! I always thought Mary Kay was for older women, but this has definitely changed my mind! I would definitely buy quite a few of these products again! I love that they have jumped on the mineral train and adore the cream eye colors and gel eyeliners! Check out these products and more at Mary Kay
