Mary Kay Giveaway Review and swatches!

A big thanks goes out to Allie Early, from Sundresses and Smiles, for holding a Mary Kay makeup giveaway, which I was lucky enough to win. So, here are swatches and my review:
Mary Kay Ultimate mascara in black, firming eye cream, eyeliner in black, eyeshadow in Sweet Cream

L-R: eyeliner, eyeshadow, eye cream, mascara (With Flash)

L-R: eyeliner, eyeshadow, eye cream, mascara (No Flash)

Here are some pics of me wearing the eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara:

My favorite product by far is definitely the mascara. The mascara wand separates lashes well and definitely appears to add volume to the lashes. Definitely a new favorite. My only problem with it is the formula clumps on the wand a little, so if I want the lash separation, I will need to clean the wand more often than usual. 

My second favorite is the eyeshadow. Although it doesn't seem to appear in the pictures, I can see it in the mirror and it is a nice, light color you could use everyday, or as a base or even as a highlighter. I got that color for that purpose and it did what I wanted it to, yay!

I personally do not care for the eyeliner. It is a mechanical pencil liner, and it is supposed to be smudge and budge proof. I am not big on pencil liner, but when I do use pencil liner, I always smudge it, but you cannot do that with this eyeliner, so you must be very precise and careful when putting it on. It won't smudge very easily and is semi-waterproof, or I found it to be. If that is what you like, then I would recommend it to you. I probably won't use this product on my upper lash line, but will use it on the lower lash line.

There isn't too much to say about the firming eye cream, it is a slightly sticky and thick formula. I have not used it consistently since I received it in the mail, so I cannot say whether I can see results or not...

I hope this helps, and thanks again, Allie! <3
