It's a MARY KAY Review and Giveaway!

Growing up, I always remember tagging along with my mom or sister to a Mary Kay parties.
I always loved trying on the makeup and feeling grown up.
And once I did grow up, I was invited to my very own Mary Kay parties and loved that I got a chance to try new products and understand how good they worked, especially their creme foundation. It always looked so natural and felt like I was wearing nothing at all.
So, I have be honest here, I was not a huge makeup girl until I cut my hair short.
From that moment on, I have loved to make my eyes and lips pop.
And while I am at it, may I admit that my skin care regimen was not the greatest? EEEEK.
I know. Terrible, right? It's just every time I tried one, it had too many steps and I had no time for it.
Then I untied that pink, satin ribbon and removed the lid of the black box and I saw . . .
1) a two-step regime for beautiful skin was enclosed.
2) A fuchsia lipstick? Do the folks at Mary Kay know me or what?
3) Last but not least, the smallest eye shadow/blush compact I've ever seen.
Perfect for me in every way!
And now what you have all been waiting for, seeing me reviewing it all.

Oh hello there . . . little, pretty package just for me.

Step 1 and 2 of the TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set.

Here I am fresh-faced, sans makeup and feeling great after trying Step 1 and 2.
I loved the way my skin felt after this easy two-step process.
The microdermabrasion beads did not hurt my delicate skin and the replenishing lotion smelled great.
My skin feels so soft!

The eye shadow/blush compact!

I am not as good at eye makeup as some of you, but the colors and brushes made it easy to apply and made me feel pretty. Do you likey?

Hello there. How YOU doin'?

What I loved about this fuchsia color compared to others I have tried was that it was not too bright. It was perfect for day into night. And that is what I need right now.
Now that you read through my review and learned a little bit about Mary Kay, you get the chance to win a $100 Mary Kay gift basket from BlogHer and Mary Kay!

Yes, you read that right!
A $100 Mary Kay gift basket filled with goodies galore.
How can you win this?

I say you . . .
Head over to Mary Kay's website and leave me a comment telling me which product you would like to try.
Easy, right?
Much love and happy makeup'ing!
Summer B.
