Things I Love--Mary Kay Make-Up

Don't worry--I'm not trying to sell you anything and you are not being invited to a party.

I just have to say that I have not always had the best skin.  And to cover up for my imperfections I've tried various brands of make-up and facial cleansers--Neutrogena, Oil of Olay, Swiss Ivy, Sephora, Clinique ... the list goes on and on.  I figure that if I could have back all the money I've spent on dermatologists and products in the name of getting vibrant healthy skin, I'd probably be able to afford to take Matt on a little romantic getaway to Cozumel (any excuse to dive and see his pecs!).  

A few years ago a friend suggested I try Mary Kay.  I'd always thought it was a gimmick but decided to at least try it when she offered me product at wholesale pricing.  I started with the Miracle Set plus some acne treatment gel. All I can say is HALLELUJAH!  My skin tone is even, my skin looks bright, and I rarely get adult zits (fewer than 3 a year--down from 3 a month!).  Don't even get me started on the fact that I'm not even in the early stages of crow's feet!

Now my vanity drawer looks like a Mary Kay saleswoman vomited pink and black product everywhere.  I use the foundation, the eyeshadow, the lipgloss, the microdermabrasion ... and I love it all.  

If you have skin product you love then you can relate to how great I feel when I put on my Mary Kay.  

My routine:
  • Wash with the 3-in-1 face wash.
  • Put 1/4 inch of acne treatment gel on my pointer finger.  Rub together and slather all over my face (I only do this once a day.  If you have bad acne or super oily skin you can do it morning and night).
  • Put on Day or Night Serum.
  • Mix dab of face lotion with dab of liquid foundation (morning only) and rub into skin.


  1. Hi Reagan! I've been meaning to come by, say hello and thank you for stopping by my blog. Much appreciated! I use to use Mary Kay a while back and even tried my hand at being a consultant. I loved their products but it's been a while since I used them. I should try it again one of these days!

  2. Alely,

    Thank YOU for stopping by. And I'd definitely suggest giving it a try again if you are in the market. Everyone has different skin types and MK totally works for me. I don't want to sell it but I always recommend it :)

    Grace and peace to you,
