Swatches: Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadows


 Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadows retail for Php 330 each (refill).
You can buy empty Mary Kay palettes just like the one pictured below and customize it whatever you want.

During the Mary Kay Press event,we were given an empty palette for us to customize.
 I opted to fill the pallete with 1 pressed powder, 6 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, mascara, eyeliner, brow liner and lipstick.
 I love that the pans are magnetic, you can easily remove and transfer them to smaller palette if you like. 

  I chose the following shades:
Crystalline | Silky caramel | Amber blaze 
Lemongrass | Golden olive | Espresso

Crystalline | Silky caramel | Amber blaze 

Lemongrass | Golden olive | Espresso 


MATTE shades
Espresso | Crystalline | Silky caramel
Among the 3 shades, my favorite is espresso. It is a versatile shade that you can use as brow color, eyeliner (applied wet) and a contour shade for the outer-v.
Amber Blaze | Lemongrass | Golden Olive
 IMO, the texture of the shimmery eyeshadows are similar to Urban Decay. 
The shimmers are not over the top and doesn't feel gritty. 
Amber blaze is close to Half-baked eyeshadow from Urban Decay.

I am very picky with my eye makeup. I easily get swollen eyelids if I'm allergic to a product, but I am happy to say that I am hiyang with Mary Kay.
Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadows are easy to apply, blends like a dream and long-lasting even without eye primer. I'm in love with the shimmery shades! I noticed that is has minimal fall-outs compared to my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.

Here's a diagram on where to apply eyeshadow.
