I must admit, I had totally preconceived notions about Mary Kay. In my mind, they were a bit outdated. Um, well, I am here to admit how wrong I am. I had a little Mary Kay party at my house a few nights ago with a few close friends and I really liked everything I got to try! We got to hang out, play around with some makeup, and it ended up being a lot of fun! I absolutely fell in love with their mascara. I have been on the lookout for a new mascara for a while. None of the mascaras I have received in my Ipsy bags over the last few months have wowed me. Everytime I use up whatever I am currently using I buy something new in hopes that this will be “the one”. Well I finally found it!
The Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara is my new favorite! Other than foundation, I’m not really one to stick to any certain makeup product. I like switching it up. But listen y’all, I’m through wasting my money on terrible mascara.
What I Like
A little goes a long way! I can do both eyes without going back for more product. It seperates and lengthens my lashes really well without clumping. The applicator has a bit of a curve to it which helps it go on more easily and helps to prevent accidentally bumping it into my eyelid – anyone else do that? Might just be me! I rub my eyes quite a bit because I’m one of those people who wears their contact lenses a little past their expiration date and this mascara stays PUT regardless. No little pieces of mascara all over my face. Hallelujah.
What I Don’t Like
I can’t think of anything I don’t like – honestly! Maybe the fact that I can’t pick it up in the same store where I buy all my groceries? I’m a bit used to that! But I’m pretty sure my Mary Kay consultant will be happy to mail me a new tube when I’m running low! I can’t even complain about the price, honestly. I typically pay around $7 for my drugstore mascara. This mascara is $15 but it WORKS and I don’t have to use nearly as much product. I think it’s going to even out!
I am putting together a little makeup routine vlog that should hit my YouTube channel next week. I’ll be sharing my current more natural/quick go-to look that I’ve been loving for summer! This mascara has definitely inspired it! It feels so much easier to go with a more natural look when I feel like my lashes are looking more defined.
