I recently tried Mary Kay products again after many years of buying other prestige cosmetics. I can say that I was pleasantly surprised. The line has been updated, the quality is great, and the prices weren't bad overall, especially compared to some of the other brands I was using.
I haven't tried everything from MK yet but this is a great highlighter. I use the highlighting pen first and then sweep this over my cheeks after all of my other makeup is done. It adds a nice glow. I will buy this again.
This is the perfect highlighter for fair skintones if you are a NW/NC10 to 20 this will look amazing. Also usually all mineral products break me out like crazy but this doesnt so I doubt the mineral claims but doesnt worry me in the slightest. Mine broke but i emptied it into a jar and shake it up to get a good combo of the pink and white. Super highlighter without looking sparkly or glittery.
I really can't comment on the price for this - my mom is a MK rep and gave it to me. But I do love the way it looks. I am a NC/NW 15 in MAC and this is a great highlighter for me. I swirl my angled powder brush on the powder and then brush on and buff. It gives my skin a great color without making me look like a clown. It also isn't super sparkley/glittery which I dislike for daytime looks. I will repurchase when the pan runs out.
I use this highlighter primarily as an eyeshadow. It is my favorite shade of pink shadow, and it makes me feel really pretty and feminine. I put the pink on the entire lid, and use the white as a soft highlight on my brow bone. This is a versatile product that can be worn casually (Just with mascara, lip stick and blush for work) or dressed up (this pink looks gorgeous on the lid in a glamorous look for evening with heavier makeup). For going out, I often pair it with a darker MAC eyeshadow in the crease, and it looks great! Application is quick, which is great so I can know I look good for work without spending 30 min. in front of the mirror.I keep it in the small MK compact with the sandstone matte bronzer for my cheeks + a lip stick or gloss. It gives me a glowing look which I love! A Mary Kay favorite. Will repurchase!
This highighter has 2 colors, one side is a mauve pink and the other is a shimmery white. I tend to only use the white side and it gives a super pigmented highlight on my cheekbones. For me the con is that it has this other color on half the pan which makes it hard to pick up only the white without using a skinny angle brush or one of the mary kay mini brush's that you can buy for your compact. The other con is you have to purchase the compact seperately. Unsure if I will purchase again.
