Mary Kay Beauty & Skin Care Prize Package Giveaway

It’s been years since I’ve worn Mary Kay cosmetics.  A friend of mine was a Mary Kay consultant years ago and turned me on to Mary Kay body wash, which was a favorite of mine.  One of my Readers became a Mary Kay consultant this year and urged me to revisit Mary Kay beauty products and I’m so glad I did.  Their products are contemporary, beautiful and work exceptionally well with my skin.  I’m so happy to be able to introduce Mary Kay Beauty and Skin Care to you!

Beauty is Mary Kay

Independent Mary Kay Beauty Consultant Peggy Gorman provided Mary Kay beauty and skin care products for this Review & Giveaway. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

I was Blessed to receive a variety of Mary Kay beauty and skin care products for review

Beauty made simple with TimeWise Miracle Set It’s been quite a while since I used Mary Kay beauty and skin care.  20 years ago I wasn’t fond of their cleanser.  It was pretty harsh on my face and back then my skin wasn’t nearly as bone dry as it is now.  So I was a bit skeptical about trying the Mary Kay TimeWise® Miracle Set® for Normal to Dry Skin.  Mary Kay beauty products seem to have been reformulated over the years and they are nothing like I remember.  The TimeWise® Miracle Set contains 4 full size products that every woman needs for basic skin care.  These award-winning products won the Good Housekeeping seal of approval and are gentle and effective.  I honestly love every single product in this kit!

  • Creamy TimeWise® 3-In-1 Cleanser for normal to dry skin is suitable for sensitive skin like mine.  It’s hypoallergenic, fragrance free and in addition to removing dirt, makeup and grime it gently exfoliates and freshens my skin without making it feel dry.
  • TimeWise® Age-Fighting Moisturizer has a light yet creamy texture and absorbs instantly into my very dry skin.  Although the package says it’s fragrance free I do detect a pleasant light scent.  At the end of the day my skin still felt soft and looked hydrated when I wore antioxidant enriched Age-Fighting Moisturizer.  And it’s the perfect texture for this hot Georgia weather!
  • Since we’re talking about the Georgia weather please use sun protection on your face every single day.  TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35* is such a nice product!  I’ve been using it now for about two weeks.  After washing and moisturizing in the morning I apply a liberal amount to my face, neck and chest.  It’s not heavy or greasy, if it was I wouldn’t use it.  With an SPF of 35 I know my skin is protected from the harsh UVA and UVB rays of the sun!  And that means my skin is going to stay younger looking longer.
  • Some skin care treatment products can be so heavy I don’t want to use them in the summer.  But I know my skin needs a nightly skin care product to keep it looking it’s best. TimeWise® Night Solution is just what I’ve been looking for.  TimeWise® Night Solution contains teeny Nutribead microcapsules that burst on my skin when applied.  These little beads deliver antioxidants, vitamins, botanicals and two specialized peptides to counteract the damage my skin receives during the day.  The serum feels light but wow does it work wonders.  The package doesn’t say to avoid the eye area, but because my eyes are so sensitive I do.  Apply after cleansing and before moisturizing every evening.

Lookin’ Gorgeous with Mary Kay Beauty Products

When your skin looks great you want to highlight it with the perfect cosmetics!  And that’s exactly what Mary Kay Beauty products are!  But I was a little nervous about choosing the correct colors for my skin tone.  Peggy, my personal Mary Kay Beauty Consultant was so helpful.  She directed me to the Mary Kay website and told me to check out tips to choose the correct makeup colors for my skin tone.  Within a few minutes I was able to choose the right colors and formulas for my skin.

Mary Kay Beauty Products are fabulous!

Mary Kay® Mineral Powder Foundation is the perfect foundation for the summer or anytime for that matter.  I chose Ivory 2 and it blends really well with my skin.  Its lightweight and doesn’t sink into my fine lines drawing attention to them.  Mineral Powder Foundation sweeps on with the Mineral Foundation Brush creating a soft, airbrushed, matte finish.  If I’m going out in the evening I dust a tiny bit of foundation over my nose and cheeks to touch up but other than that this foundation looks great all day into the evening.

The fun part of Mary Kay, at least for me are the beauty products.  What woman doesn’t love to play with makeup?  Mary Kay® Mineral Cheek Color in Citrus Bloom is a color I wouldn’t normally choose because it looked too pink to me. But I relied on the website which said that this would be a good color for fair skin and it is!  I love it.  The blush looks striking with the Mineral Eye Colors I chose.  Black Pearl & Iris Mineral Eye Colors are long lasting, crease resistant and they glide on easily. Back in the 80’s I had a skin sensitivity to Mary Kay eye shadows. The green shadow irritated my eyelids.  I’ve used these Eye Colors for two weeks with no problems at all.

The two beauty products I cannot do without are mascara and lipgloss. Since I change my mascara every three months I’m always on the prowl for a great one. Mary Kay® Ultimate Mascara™ is perfect for contact lens wearers since it doesn’t flake and it’s allergy tested. It thickens, adds volume and separates my lashes without making them look clumpy. I apply one coat for daytime and two for a dramatic nighttime look!

The finale, a touch of Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss in Pink Luster on my lips!  This shimmery pink shade is full of shine and treats my lips to conditioning vitamins and minerals.  Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus® Lip Gloss protects and softens my lips like a balm and the color lasts for hours!
