Winter may be coming to an end but it is still cold and dreary outside. After the icy winter winds have done their worst, it may be time to break out the conditioning moisturizers for total body rejuvenation. Mary Kay’s bath and body collection with African Shea, White Tea and Citrus, is ultra-nourishing, healing and soothing. There is also a new collection of makeup brushes and radiant eye shadows for all skin tones.
The Satin Body Collection includes everything you need to pamper your skin with indulgent spa-like formulas that smell amazing! Start with a revitalizing shower to unwind after a long, hectic day. The Shea Scrub ($22.00) gently buffs away dead cells to leave skin soft, smooth and renewed. The polishing granules work wonders on elbows, knees and feet, exfoliating roughness and dry patches.
As the warm water and steam loosens tired muscles, lather-up with the Shea Wash ($22.00). This refreshing cleanser foams away impurities, oil and environmental debris while enveloping you in an intoxicating scent.
Towel-off and treat your body to a blast of hydration with the Whipped Shea Crème ($26.00). The smooth, buttery texture is rich and ultra-nourishing to instantly alleviate parched, sensitive skin. If you love body butters like I do then you will definitely appreciate how supple, plump and fortified your skin feels after using this lush formula. I like to apply it right after shaving so my legs feel irresistibly silky.
I use the Whipped Crème at night before slipping into my pajamas and plunking down in front of the TV but during the day I prefer something lighter. The Shea Lotion ($22.00) melts in instantly for immediate dryness relief and a soft, velvety finish. The formula is non-greasy, fragrant and long-lasting so you can embrace the last few days of winter with total confidence and protection.
I travel frequently so the Essentials Brush Collection ($75.00) is ideal for creating a range of stylish looks on-the-go and it comes with a chic portable clutch. As you run your hand over the luxurious bristles you will notice that the high-grade, synthetic material is durable and flexible for seamless application. The handcrafted fibers are compatible with liquid, cream and powder formulas plus they feel soft against the skin. The kit includes: a fluffy Powder brush, Eye Smudger Brush to create detailed accents and smokiness, All-Over Shadow Brush, Crease Brush, Cheek Brush, and a Lip Brush.
No matter what your skin tone, Mary Kay’s new Mineral Eye Color Quads ($21.00 ea) are sure to add a little pizzazz to your day. The shades are expertly coordinated, easy to blend and very wearable for quick everyday looks or a romantic evening out.
The Shades of Jade Palette features cool, iridescent hues and a pop of deep navy for a little drama. The shadows are nicely pigmented with buildable coverage and although the colors are simple, they create soft, elegant looks.
Berry Haute is my favorite of the two palettes. It contains a pretty bronze, silvery-pink, glistening garnet and light pink-mauve that blend together to create a stunning effect. The shadows are silky, non-creasing and long-lasting plus the magnetic backing allows you to transfer them to a variety of portable palettes.
