Mary Kay Make-up: Beautiful Lashes

It's been a few days since I wrote on this blog. I actually missed it, but unfortunately my schedule in Afghanistan isn't always my own. I was planning on writing about more skin products, but I thought it might be time to write about the thing that Mary Kay is known for---MAKE-UP!

Today I plan to focus on mascara. Mary Kay has quite a few different kinds. So, I plan to write a little about each one so that you know which is the right one for you.

Mary Kay Waterproof Mascara ($10, plus tax). This mascara was tested in a triathlon--swimming, biking and running. Sounds like a mascara that will stay in place. This mascara is also humidity proof If you live in a humid area, this might be the mascara for you. Available in black and black/brown.


Black Brown

Mary Kay Lash Lengthening Mascara ($10, plus tax). This is a lightweight formula that lengthens lashes. It comes in two shades, black and black/brown.


Black Brown

Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara ($15, plus tax). This is the volumizing, thickening mascara, sure to create bold lashes. Also comes in black and black/brown.


Black Brown

Lash Love Mascara ($15, plus tax). If you like mascara that gives your lashes definition, this is the one for you. This mascara will also condition lashes to prevent breakage. This formula comes in black and brown.



Waterproof Lash Love Mascara ($15, plus tax). This one is just exactly what the name says. The same great benefits of Lash Love Mascara, just waterproof as well!



If you'd like a natural look with no mascara, I suggest the Lash Primer ($15, plus tax). This product was discussed in my post about primers. But you can check this one out here.

And in case you need a boost to your lashes and brows, so they grow in fuller and thicker, why not try Mary Kay Lash & Brow Building Serum ($38, plus tax). This is much cheaper than Latisse. :)

And just to make sure we can take all of that mascara off, I recommend Mary Kay Oil-free Eye Make-up Remover ($15, plus tax). This product will take off all of your eye make-up, including the waterproof formulas, but keep the lashes where they belong--on your lids.

As a side note, Mary Kay Mascaras do not contain sand or crushed glass in their formulas like some other mascaras do. Do you really want sand or crushed glass that close to your eye?

Also, I recommend the black/brown or brown shades for my fair completed customers--those with blond or auburn hair. Even some of those with brown hair can use these shades. This will create a softer look to your lashes as opposed to the stark contrast with black mascara. Those with dark hair or dark complexions should use the black mascara. The brown and black/brown shades might make your lashes seem to disappear. Of course, I recommend black for all complexions for red carpet and night on the town events. You definitely want contrast then.

I hope this information is helpful today. I had fun writing it. As always, I welcome comment, questions, product reviews and feedback.

Take care!
