#doyourmakeup review: Discount code & Mary Kay Dash out the Door Set
Posted Oct 22 2013 7:03am
So, makeup reviews really get me excited, because obviously? I LOVE MAKEUP! And I have loved Mary Kay longtime, so I was really happy when local Mary Kay Independent Sales Director Bobbi Hosmon asked me to review Mary Kay’s “Dash Out the Door” set. I was all “heck yes!!” (in the most professional way, of course.) This set includes everything you need to get ready in a flash: cream blush, Lash Love™ mascara, cream eye shadow, and NouriShine Plus™ lip gloss! (Okay, I myself also really, really, REALLY need concealer, but that’s beside the point, right?) Here’s the look I got using this set: cream blush in Sheer Bliss, cream eye shadow in Metallic Taupe, Lash Love™ mascara in Brown, and NouriShine™ lip gloss in Pink Sateen. Stay tuned because at the end of this post, I’ll have a 40% off discount code for you so you can shop Bobbi’s Mary Kay site at a discount!
Now, like the true cosmeticophile (made it up! totally!) that I am, I’ll review each item for ya. First up: cream blush in Sheer Bliss .
I will confess, I was pretty sure I was not going to like the cream blush. I wear powder foundation, and my past experiences with cream blush & powder foundation have been not so swell. But this one totally surprised me in a good way! It goes on like a cream but instantly changes to a powder-like finish, so it doesn’t pull my foundation off as it goes on. And it goes on fast and stays on really well, giving all-day color! This Sheer Bliss shade in particular is sooo pretty & a great neutral to wear any time.
I already loooove cream eye shadow in general, and Mary Kay’s specifically! I owned two other colors, but they finally have lots more color options – yay! I tried this metallic taupe because I am a sucker for a good neutral. It is great worn as a base for other colors or as the main color on your eye. I love it because it goes on so fast, is easy to blend with your finger, and stays on really well – no primer required! Plus, I’ve never had it crease on me either. It’s great!
For more eye candy, I went with Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in I <3 Brown. I had tried the regular Lash Love before and thought it was great, but this Lengthening version? WOW! It is amazing!
See that curved brush and those short bristles? It really lengthens and separates lashes no you don’t get any clumps and you get a LOT of length. To compare this with the mascaras in my famous drugstore mascara compara-thon, I would’ve given it an A++! It really is that good. And it stays on ALL day. My only regret is that I didn’t choose the I <3 Black color – the brown was a little pale for me. So, now I am definitely going to have to get the black! Love it!
Last, but certainly not least, I tried this Mary Kay NouriShine Plus lip gloss in Pink Sateen.
I will tell you a little secret: this lip gloss is the absolute BEST! In all my drugstore endeavors I have yet to find one that comes close. I have about 4,000 (approximately) and I can never have enough! They are nice and thick without being sticky, super-shiny, and stay on longer than most glosses. This color I hadn’t tried yet and it is a gorgeous beige-y pink that will look good on just about anyone. It really is perfect for when you need to dash out the door.
