Mary Kay Eyeshadow Swatch

Standard

The response to my first eyeshadow swatches blew me away! Thank you to my Mary Kay friends in Russia for linking to my photos. It was fun reading your responses in the forum–thank heaven for Google Translate!

My next inventory order came in last week, and I’ve been dying to post more swatches! As promised, the swatches for our Mineral Eye Color in Espresso and Denim Frost are below. The first photo is in full sunlight and the second is indoors with flash.

Espresso is a matte dark brown, the darkest brown in the MK palate. It layers nicely and is a wonderful liner. It may be because I was born in the 80’s, but I am in love with Denim Frost! It is a greyed-out cobalt blue shimmer with some iridescence–and I think I see the tiniest bit of black pigment in the second photo. It’s so nuanced it drives me wild!

Look at that shimmer!

Overall I am impressed with the Mineral Eye Color collection. The shades are highly pigmented and blend beautifully. Please comment if there are any particular color combinations you’d like to see!

As always, let me know if you’d like to place an order or if you have any questions.

Mary Kay Eyeshadow Swatches

Mary Kay Eyeshadow Swatches

I recently got my Mary Kay eyeshadow palate set up and I am thrilled with the colors. So, I did the only logical thing: swatch them all! My neighbors were surely wondering who was sticking their arm out of the second story window and photographing it. Well, too bad! Because it was fun!

Here is my arm in all of its swatchy glory…
