So, are you ready to face the challenge? You don't need a fairy god mother to achieve your dream now, all you need is a magic wand to take you there. Since the first stage is all about makeover and sending them your most confidence and beautiful look, I tried to do my own makeover using Mary Kay's product to cheer you on! 

Make Over Using Mary Kay's Product
Still need improvements.

First, I've got to say despite my love for makeup I am not that skillful when it comes to doing bold looking makeup so forgive me if my self done makeover is just 'so-so'.I could have done a better job for the eye look. One of the reason is that my shortsightedness limits my ability to do a nice one and that usually puts me off. But these days I've been practicing a lot at home during my free time so it's not as bad as it used to be. I wonder how would I be if I were to do others makeup, its something I've never tried before since I have no sister to experiment on.*so sad*


I used a total of five different products from Mary Kay for this simple smokey eye look which are:

1. Mary Kay CC Cream
2. Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colour Quad in Black Ice/Glace Noire
3. Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Colour Duo in Ripe Watermelon/Pasteque More
4. Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner Pen
5. Mary Kay True Dimension Lipstick in Wild About Pink

Mary Kay CC Cream

This CC Cream from Mary Kay has quite a good coverage despite being a CC cream which are usually known for its little coverage. Most of the CC creams from other brands that I've tried before has minimal coverage which doesn't really do any good to my imperfect skin. The consistency of the cream is just nice; not being to thick nor too watery. It comes in a pump dispenser so its easy to use and also hygienic. The shade that I'm using is light to medium and it's mentioned on the direction that it is best to apply the product 15 minutes before sun exposure.  CC is short of complexion corrector and Mary Kay's CC Cream comes with SPF 15 sunscreen.

Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colour Quad in Black Ice/Glace Noire

The shades from this quad palette are very pigmented with the brown one having the strongest colour payoff. The shades contains glitters and despite that product's fall out are quite minimal although I would recommend the use of eye primer to let it stays on longer. They are also buildable and does not creases on my eyes. The price for one eyeshadow quad is RM49 with four different palette to choose from.

Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Colour Duo in Ripe Watermelon/Pasteque More

I really love the cheek palette that I got. It's very pigmented yet gives off a beautiful and almost sheer-like glow on swatches. Ripe Watermelon is a matte pink blusher while Pasteque More is suitable to use as a highlighter. This product is one of my favourite among the five. I usually prefer a coral coloured blusher because this kind of pink shade doesn't really look as good on me but surprisingly this one does. It is buildable and I like how little product can give the flushed look that's really natural. The highlighter is especially amazing, swatched on my hand for first impression I like how smooth it feels. Probably one of the best powder highlighters I have. This cheek palette is priced at RM60.

Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner Pen

I have a bit of mixed feeling about this one product. For the precision and the strong black colour I've got to say that it's really awesome. The felt tip makes it easy to draw, either a super fine line or a bold cat eye. It stays on long but from my experience its not water proof so I ended up having black panda eye twice due to the hot day heat that made me sweat, maybe I choose the wrong place to wear it.


One of the great thing about this though is that it is tested for irritancy and allergy so this liquid liner is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearer. I don't feel itchy or get red eyes even when the eyeliner got smudged and some of it got into my eyes, so that's actually a good thing. Maybe I should give this one some more time, I rarely use liquid eyeliners compared to a gel one so I might have less experience with it. This eyeliner comes at RM65.

Mary Kay True Dimension Lipstick in Wild About Pink

I am in love with this lipstick! It don't get a strong first impression on the shade but after a few times using it, now this lipstick is one of my current favourite. I fell in love with the shade, and I love how it is not too shiny and does not feels too sticky. It kind of reminds me of one of the lip balm that I used to love. It's quite on the sheer side but still have a strong colour pay off.


I especially love the packaging, it looks high end and to open it I'll have to push the lipstick bullet downward so it's really secure. I hate when my lipstick cover came off in my bag and dusts started to stick on it. The formulation is light and moisturizing. This lipstick comes at RM64 and I might consider getting another one when this runs out. It's my favourite one out of five!

If you're interested in joining the contest, do find your nearest Mary Kay Beauty Consultant and I bet she would've done a better job for the makeover. I wish you good luck!

Till next post, toodles~! ♥ミ
