Mary Kay Makeup Review and Giveaway!



I think my daughter is a future makeup artist. She LOVES makeup. She loves to pretend to put makeup on, she loves to watch me put makeup on, and she absolutely loves it whenever I let her put a dab of lip gloss on for fun at home! So...you can imagine how excited Izzy and I were when our package full of Mary Kay makeup arrived one day! The Mary Kay company very generously sent me many different products to review, including sugar scrubs (review and giveaway to come during Christmas), shower gels, moisturizer, and more! She wanted to help open every box and try every lip balm! She was so excited!

One of the products I was extremely excited about receiving was the new refillable Mary Kay Compact! It is amazing! Because of its design it is eco-friendly because instead of throwing your compact away when it's empty like you normally would have to do, you get to keep refilling it with more makeup! The compact is the perfect size because it fits easily into small purses, and it also fits nicely in the palm of your hand if you are using it on the go (it has a very handy mirror inside)! Another aspect of the compact that is great is the revolutionary magnetic closure, which means you never have to worry again about your compact accidentally opening and spilling! The aspect I most love about this compact is that I can change out the colors and products whenever I want to. This was very handy for me when I went on vacation and wanted to take some dressier makeup shades for going out at night. It was so nice to have my bronzer, my eye shadows, and my lip gloss in one handy spot!

One thing that's super exciting is that my personal Mary Kay consultant Sheila is going to be offering first time customers through my blog a 20% discount during the giveaway time frame! Click here to access her website. When you make a purchase just make a note in the comment section at checkout about the review and giveaway. Also, if you make a purchase from her after the giveaway is over you will still get a 15% discount for mentioning The Mommy Homemaker. There is also a Gift with Purchase for all orders totalling over $40.00 (while supplies last). Another perk is that shipping is complimentary to anyone who orders from out of town!

And now guess what... one of you lucky ladies is going to be winning a compact full of mineral makeup! All you have to do is enter!

  2. Visited Mary Kay. My favorite is probably the Extra Emollient Night Cream. I use it when my hands and lips are really dry. Good stuff!

  26. Hi! I visited the Mary Kay website and I would have to say honestly my favorite item would be the refillable Mary Kay compact! It's small and fits in your purse, great for a Mommy on the go. I like that's it's refillable too, better for the environment and you can change the colors to try them all! Thanks!
