Mary Kay's 2013 Fall Collection: At Play


I feel that this is probably the most anticipated collection in the history of Mary Kay! They're not only launching 1 but 2 Fall Collections this year, "At Play" & "Fairytales & Fantasies"  (click here to read "Fairytales & Fantasies" reveiw). 

This particular collection is geared toward "Gen Y-ers", a first for Mary Kay! What is or who is Generation Y???

Wikipedia defines Generation Y:
"Generation Y, also known as the Millennial Generation,[1] is the demographic cohort following Generation X. There are no precise dates for when Generation Y starts and ends. Commentators use beginning birth dates from the early 1980s to the early 2000s."


Don't let this deter you if you don't fall in this generation... I don't! This is youthful, flirty, fun and chic! The colours are vibrant, sexy and yet demure. There is honestly something, if not all of it, for everyone! 

Plus, Everything is only $12 each

available August 16th 

Let's dive right in to the good stuff! Warning this is a huge collection and this review is very picture heavy, but I love pictures! I have also put together some looks for you as well with the Baked Eye Trio's! Enjoy! 

Packaging
Love the packaging! So simple, clean and creative. Loving the "@" logo on it! 

Lip Crayons
$12 CND

Loving these Lip Crayons. We are all familiar with this  form component for both lips and eyes. It glides across your lips and leaves them feeling moisturized. I find that these crayons are cross between lip stick and a lip gloss, just lovely! Very long lasting without drying out on the lips. 

Little trick... Use the tip of the crayon to act as a lip liner then use the side of the product to fill in your lips for a perfect application!

Swatches
Left ~ Right: Toasted, Perfect Pink, Candied Apple & Violet Love


Toasted


Perfect Pink

Eye Crayon

$12 CND

Just like the Lip Crayons there are Eye Crayons! I'm completely in love with these shades!!! These colours say Fall, Elegance and Style! I personally don't use the crayons alone on my lids. I prefer to use these as a colour base for my shadows. These glide on, blended beautifully and like I said create an amazing base for eye shadows.

Little tip... Also use some kind of a eye primer before the eye crayons to prevent creasing and helps with the longevity and intensity of the product. 

Swatches
Left ~ Right: Gold Mine, Green Tea, Purple Smoke & 
In the Navy



Jelly Lip Gloss
$12  CND .32 fl.oz

"Jelly, Juicy & Pulp", these lip gloss glosses will make your lips speak without saying a word! Your lips are left looking fuller and kiss-ably ready!

I love the sheer pigment it leaves on my lips... just perfect! The only down fall is that they are a little tacky but not sticky, which I can't stand sticky glosses. B/c they're on the tacky side the durability of them are outstanding! 

Swatches

Left ~ Right: Teddy Bear,Berry Me, Hot Tamale &
Crushed Plum





Baked Eye Trio

$12 CND net wt. 2g

Baked eye shadow vs. Standard eye shadow???





Baked eye shadows tend to be bolder and brighter than your standard eye shadow. I find that the shimmer is very intense and powerful. Baked shadows are great to use wet or dry. Some standard eye shadows need more layering & can caked up when use wet. Baked shadows can give off more of a multidimensional look then regular shadows.

I am most excited about these Baked Trio's!!! These are very vivid and have an excellent colour payoff. They blend easily. 

Little tip... Again use a eye primer to get the most out of your shadow, longevity and prevent creasing. Add other matte shadows with these palettes... have a high shine eye look can leave you looking like a disco ball!
