“You make me blush “
Mary kay’s new collections recently came my way and there are some really great products that I put to the test.
When I first opened the boxes I was instantly drawn to the blushes! Not only is the packaging super cute (I love anything heart shaped) but the colours looked amazing. I am going to split the review into 3 for the products as they are all very different.
I started playing with these blushes over the past few weeks and in all honesty I find my self reaching for them almost daily. The blushes came in 2 shades and both are so versatile and highly pigmented (go in with a light hand)
Baked Cheek Powder in “ Giving Heart”
This blush is the darker of the two. In the cute heart shaped compact is a beautiful Rosy pink that has a slight metallic shimmer. The giving heart colour is also the most pigmented so be careful with the amount on your brush. I found this blush to be beyond gorgeous but I will say it’s almost too dark for my fair skin ( I have to be very light handed) but this would be beyond gorgeous on my medium to dark skinned beauties.I tones it down slightly by mixing the two together.
Baked cheek powder in “ Kind Heart”
This beautiful blush is my favourite of the two it’s a stunning peachy pink colour with a bit of a gold metallic sheen to it. I found this blush to work beautifully both day and night. The pigmentation is not as full on as the giving heart one but the gold shimmer is everything. This blush goes gorgeously with light to medium skin colours but I think if you wanted to build it up you could totally wear this on darker skin. Now you know I am obsessed with all things rose gold and that’s what this remind me of in a blush a coral rose gold.
Over all I really enjoyed these blushes, my favourite colour is actually when I combine the two.I use giving heart first and then layer kind heart over top.
They have a bit of kickback and fall out but nothing to serious. I really think everything from the black packaging to the heart shaped pans is really cute. The compacts do not have a mirror but I don’t really take blush on the go anyways so this is not a downside for me.
Each blush contains .23oz or 6.5g of product and They will retail at $23 CDN each. These blushes are part of Mary Kay’s beauty that counts project . They are limited edition and $2 of the purchase price of this product will go towards organizations dedicated to helping woman live with cancer and helping put an end to domestic violence among woman. I think its great to see beauty companies giving back and trying to make the world a more inclusive place.
These blushes can be purchased at Mary Kay Canada’s website. Both blushes will be launching very soon !
I hope you enjoyed this review! What are your favourite blushes?
