I’ll be honest, I have never used Mary Kay. I tend to shy away from brands that are only sold through consultants or online as I prefer to shop & swatch and buy without pressure and I have to physically SEE what I am buying before I buy it, especially when it comes to makeup, foundations and textures of products
I was sent a few products to try out which I was really excited about as I have been intrigued about this brand for so long. I want to share with you the star of the show and something that I am really loving : The Moroccan Dunes eyeshadow palette.
The texture of these eye shadows are ultra smooth, buttery and easy to apply. The shades, quality and the way they apply 100% honestly, NO BS, remind me of the Chanel quads. I’ve tried them wet & dry and they are really beautiful eyeshadows. This particular quad is embossed with sea shells which is a nice touch but I only am caring about the shadows, and I think they are really great.
The colours are wearable and these tones will literally work on everyone and any eye colour ; there is a champagne shimmer, a pink golden, a soft mauve and a cool charcoal. If you want to see it on me, then I have it on in my latest You Tube video which you can see >> here.
The only small negative for me…..is the packaging. It’s not ultra offensive by any means, but it simply does not reflect the superior quality of the product that lies within. I was expecting the product to be not as good as it is solely based on the packaging as it’s just quite simple & lightweight, and a touch 90’s. I would maybe expect it from something L’Oreal or Maxfactor but not for a brand that is pitching towards that higher clientele who are spending £28 for this quad.
Aside from that one niggle about the packaging, this is a beautiful palette and I love the shades, the wear and how the shadows apply. This is a limited edition palette btw so if you want to find out more then check here on the website before it goes.
