We just had a big snow storm but I don’t care because I feel like Spring is here when I look at the new Mary Kay Into the Garden Collection*. Okay, that’s not true, I’d like actual Spring as well, but I’ll do my best to cope with this soft, floral collection created by Mary Kay in partnership with fashion designer Patricia Bonaldi. The Mary Kay Into the Garden Collection features a mix of makeup, nails and skincare with the gorgeous floral design. Seriously, I really love these flowers!
The Mary Kay Into The Garden Soap Set contains a trio of scented soaps in a really lovely floral box. The soaps have a soft floral scent and would make a gorgeous gift!
If you’re going to have to blot oil–which is never very pleasant–then at least you can do it with tissues in a lovely package like these Mary Kay Into the Garden Beauty Blotters Oil-Absorbing Tissues.
The powder products are always one of the standouts of any Mary Kay collection and this one is no exception. Unlike previous collections where the eyeshadows usually come in pan form–see the Mary Kay Fall 2015 City Modern Eye Color Palettes as an example–this one actually contains a palette. The Mary Kay Into the Garden Lip & Eye Color Compact comes in cardboard packaging with a floral design and includes a large mirror as well as 4 eyeshadows, 3 lip glosses, and a dual ended applicator.
The eyeshadows in the Mary Kay Into the Garden Lip & Eye Color Compact include the shades natural taupe, pink, violet and plum brown, which all have a lovely, soft, pigmented texture. There is a bit of fall out when applying, but they blend gorgeously and I really love the colours. The lip glosses include nude, pink and coral. All the shades are fairly sheer and I found that the pink shade got really soft in the pan. However, they are comfortable and pretty to wear. Personally, as cute as the packaging is, I actually wish these eyeshadows came separately because I tend not to use glosses in pan form, and I’m worried getting eyeshadow in them.
For my Mary Kay Into the Garden look I applied the pink eyeshadow to the inner corner which really brightens up the eye. I used the shimmery taupe all over the lid, and darkened up the crease with the violet shade. The palette could have benefited from a matte shade but at the same time, I’m really happy with how the look turned out. I used the coral gloss from the my Mary Kay Into the Garden Lip & Eye Color Compact on my lips.
I don’t use nail stickers very often but the Mary Kay Into the Garden Nail Appliques are a really cute mix with a lace and floral design. The package contains 16 decals, so you can definitely trim them to fit your nails.
Of course, there are also traditional polishes in the collection and they are really pretty for Spring! Mary Kay Into the Garden Nail Lacquer includes the shades Coral Blossom, Pink Magnolia and Sweet Lilac.
The Mary Kay Into the Garden Nail Lacquer in Coral Blossom is a really pretty bright coral pink creme. It’s nearly opaque in 2 coats, but the tiniest bit uneven. This shade makes me look super tan.
The Mary Kay Into the Garden Nail Lacquer in Pink Magnolia is a soft pale pink nude creme. I was really impressed by this shade because polishes with a white base are often uneven, but this was flawless and opaque in 2 coats.
The Mary Kay Into the Garden Nail Lacquer in Sweet Lilac is a dusty grey creme with a lilac undertone to it. It was a bit streaky and uneven with 3 coats, but the shade itself is really lovely.
As a bonus, if you spend $60 or more on the Mary Kay into The Garden Collection, you Mary Kay Into the Garden Bag for free. The bag is white with a floral print lining and actually really nice.
In addition to the products shared here, there is a Mary Kay Into the Garden Pedicure Set that I’m planning to feature in an upcoming post, but it’s also really nice.
Overall, I think there are some lovely products in the Mary Kay Into the Garden Collection and it’s definitely very Spring-inspired. Is there anything on your wishlist now?
