This week I tried two products to highlight my cheeks which premiered in Summer but will transfer flawlessly into Fall.
First up was a traditional powder blush: Mary Kay’s Mineral Cheek Color with new shades for 2010. Recently, I’ve moved away from powder blushes myself, but if you are lover of mineral wear, Mary Kay’s Mineral Cheek Color does last as long as it promises and brushes on well.
I tried the Citrus Bloom shade, which was beautiful in the compact, a really warm bright pink. If you’ve been following my reviews, then you might have picked up on the fact that I prefer natural-looking make-up, which this ain’t. The pink was just as bright on my cheeks as it was in the compact. So if you’re the kind of girl who likes to make a statement, then this is the cheek color for you. I, on the other hand, will be using my new favorite product…
Mary Kay’s Cooling Bronzing Stick. This is a limited edition product designed to help women look tan without harmful summer rays. The stick allows for easy, blendable application wherever you wish the sun had left tan traces. I use it as a traditional bronzer, but it follows through on its promise to soothe the skin with moisture and a cooling touch. I’m not sure how Mary Kay does it, but my skin feels cool even while it looks sun-kissed. The color blends beautiful with all skin tones, providing a subtle, realistic glow without feeling greasy or wearing off. Basically, in short, I love love love it, and will be sad when it finally runs out. Fortunately, it looks like that will be a long time from now.
You can get either product if you consult with your local Mary Kay representative, who you can find at www.marykay.com. The Mineral Cheek Color retails for $10 a shade and the Bronzing Stick retails for $20 (and worth it!).
