Masks -Mary Kay -Clear Proof® Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask

on 7/18/2018 3:12:00 AM

This mask works wonderfully on oily skin. It mattifies your skin and sucks all the oil out but does not dry out your skin. I use it before I go to bed. It is a little expensive but worth it.

Cleansers -Mary Kay -Clear Proof Acne System

This is just a review of the Clear Proof® Deep-Cleansing Charcoal Mask which my 13 year old uses and loves.
We also like Origins Charcoal mask. Very good for spot treating "zits" and drying out excess oil. Do not use all over unless you really need to be dried out.

Very helpful for a teen with acne.

$24 for a 4 oz. tube.

Eye Shadow -Mary Kay -Mineral Shadow Iris

on 7/11/2018 8:14:00 AM

Got a free sample of "Iris" eye shadow from a Mary Kay Lady in a local clothing store who was patrolling the store for new clients.
The shadow itself would cost $8 (not bad) but, as with all MK, you have to buy the compact separately (blech.).

Not worth buying but for free? It was fine. A mid-toned purple.


Mascara -Mary Kay -Lash Love Mascara

This is actually a much better mascara than I was expecting. I received it in a beauty box, as this isn’t a brand that interests me (I’m more into super high end) but decided to give it a try. It lengthened and separated my lashes well, helped them hold a curl and thickened slightly after a few coats. I found it very buildable, and great for a daytime or more casual evening look. I am always into trying new mascaras, so wouldn’t rebuy, but I was pleasantly surprised by this, and think it’s worth a try.


Liquid -Mary Kay -Medium Coverage Foundation

Okay.... so I was first introduced to this foundation from a fellow oily skinned co-worker. Plus she was older than me...in her 50s. and her skin looked great!!
I used it for some time AND THEN decided to look else where ---- idk why????... but with me and foundations--the grass is always greener on the other side.
Fast forward 10+ yrs and many more foundations later (MANY from Sephora!) AND I tried it once again because I had a tube I hadn't used in my makeup drawer.
I was blown away!!!! Why did I stop using THIS?!? why?
Just a bit of background on my skin-- I am a Native American chick with super oily skin. Many foundations that are made especially for oily skin do not help me at all. My skin ends up breaking down the foundation in a few hours and leaving me looking an oily, shiny mess with zero coverage!! It looks awful!!!!!! And these are expensive foundations supposedly made for oily skin too!!!
My other issue is that my skin is a hard match. Sometimes a formula works "okay" but the maker does not have a good match for my skin tone. So that leaves me always looking for a better match and a better foundation.
HOWEVER, with THIS foundation-- it matches my skin as closely as I'm going to get as far as foundation goes. It oxidizes very well for me and leaves my skin looking matte and just normal-- like skin!!! and THAT is all I've always wanted!!! Just my acne scarring somewhat covered and my oily skin kept somewhat matte.
THIS does that. AND at the end of the day, when my skin has broken down some of the foundation...l still look decent!?! that always amazes me when I look in the mirror after a full day walking around in the summer heat-- i still look alright.... there's still some coverage left and my skin still looks like my skin with some of my imperfections covered.
THAT always amazes me.
I do not know why I was still looking for my "H.G." foundation--- tbh, only 2 foundations have ever worked well only life for my acne scarring and hyperpigmentation as well as my oily skin and skin tone/color. THOSE 2 are Revlon ColorStay foundation for Combination/Oily skin AND this one: Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation. That's it...those are the only ones that have decent coverage, match my skin shade/color, last a long period of time thru summer heat and my oily skin (isn't broken down by heat & oil in 2 hours or so) AND leave me somewhat mattified and not "dewy" and greasy looking.
In addition to all of this--- it doesn't break me out!!
SO I think I am always going to have a tube of this on hand. I am tired of the searching and swatching, the returns and the break outs from some foundations. I think this IS now my HG foundation for now. Makeup addict that I am, I'm sure that one day I'll be lured into trying something new in the hopes of a new product that matches my skin flawlessly and keeps oil under control-- BUT i think I will also remind myself that I have something that does match all my criteria and meets my needs already.
to my Oily skinned sisters out there-- Give this a try. I did.. I was amazed that it actually worked for me?! I still kind of am?! The "new" version-- the MK Timewise Matte foundation didn't work whatsoever and it made me look horrible as well!! BUT THIS, THIS works fantastically and I would advise all oily skinned gals to give this a try!! I'm sure glad I did all those years back!!!!!!!
I'm lifelong customer now!!!!!
