Mary Kay {Sponsored Review} @MaryKayOnTheGo

This review was written by my daughter for Mary Kay on the Go! Nancy Motz, Independent Mary Kay Beauty Consultant.

I am one of those girls that absolutely will NOT go out of the house without some kind of makeup on. It’s not that I feel unsure of myself; it’s just that it makes me feel more confident. When my mom asked if me if I would like to get some Mary Kay, I was like, OF COURSE! When searching through the catalog I realized that there were a lot of great products to choose from. I was also surprised to find that they offered products not only for women, but for men too!

This is great, because most cosmetic companies don’t. Here are the products that my dad and I chose for review…

Au Natural Nourashine Lip Gloss
Silver Satin Mineral Eye Color
Emerald Mineral Eye Color
Satin Lips Lip Balm
MK Men Cooling After Shave Gel

My dad got the Mary Kay Cooling After-Shave Gel. He said that it was “indeed cooling and did not burn like most other after shaves that contain alcohol do. It went on smooth and did not leave any evidence of razor burn.”

They had many things to choose from. Some of the things included lip gloss, eye shadow, foot care, and many, many more things to choose from. I personally love lip gloss, so I knew that that would be one of the first things I chose. The first lip gloss I chose was in their “Nourishine Plus” line. I have to say that I am really impressed! I usually only wear clear lip gloss but, this one is not. They call it Au Naturel. It is kind of a light pinkish color. It’s really pretty and goes great with the natural color of my lips!

The next lip gloss I picked was clear (of course), but part of their special line called “Satinlips”. When I tried this on, I was amazed! Within seconds my lips were already starting to feel renewed and silky smooth!

After this, I decided to explore their eye shadow. This was a good decision because I found many, many great shades of beautiful colors. The first one that caught my eye was “emerald”. I loved it, and when I tried it on, I loved it even more! My eyes are green, and this eye shadow really makes them standout.

Another one that caught my eye was “Silver Satin”. It’s not unusual that I would pick silver, because I usually wear shades close to silver, on a daily basis. Both shadows are amazing and gorgeous! They both seem like they contain many, tiny sparkles to add a little to it.

Overall, I am really impressed and happy with my decision in picking out these wonderful products. I hope that many of you will read this and go out and buy your own Mary Kay products, and love them just as much as I do!

I am wearing Silver Satin Mineral Eye Color and Nourashine Lip Gloss!

    I have used some Mary Kay hand lotions and loved them!

  6. i used mary kay makeup years ago

  7. Amy Orvin says:

    I have never tried Mary Kay products but want to try. I am not one of those woman who can’t leave the house without make-up but I don’t like to leave without perfume. So, if I win, I’d try some perfume. They all look wonderful!!

  8. debbie jackson says:

  10. kelly goss says:

    Love Mary Kay products, and your daughter is just adorable! She did a great job with the review!

  11. I haven’t come across these products before but then I rarely wear make-up unless I am going out for the evening

    • Vesper,

      The skin care line is amazing. Mary Kay is not all about make-up.

      The Mary Kay Foundation
      a legacy of love
      About Us

      Throughout her life, Mary Kay Ash showed others how to live. And how to give. She gave hope to women who lacked opportunity and self-esteem and financial support to the causes she believed in. Although she died on Thanksgiving Day 2001, her legacy of love continues through the The Mary Kay Foundation, which she began in 1996.

      The mission of the TMKF is two-fold:
      • We are committed to eliminating cancers affecting women by supporting top medical scientists who are searching for a cure for breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian cancers.
      • We are committed to ending the epidemic of domestic violence by providing grants to women’s shelters and supporting community outreach programs.

      Since the Foundation began in 1996, it has granted $25 million dollars to organizations fighting cancer and violence against women.

    I’ve been asking my hubby to try the “For Men” line of Mary Kay, but he says…”NO WAY, Mary Kay is for women!” I truly think Mary Kay would be beneficial for my hub’s. I’m not gonna give up on him. Wish me luck, please!

    • My husband really loved it! He was surprised they had stuff for men, too, but was more than willing to try it out!


      • In all honesty, men probably need more of the skin care products. There are a lot of men that work and/or play in the sun more than women.

        I hope you entered the contest! Good Luck!

  13. Silver Satin looks like a great color thanks for the review!

  14. Heather carter says:

    Aww you look great! I would probably try that same shade in eye shadow. My eyes are my best feature and I would want to make them POP! I <3 mary kay!

    thank your for the review

  25. thanks for the review of the products, I love Mary Kay and have used their eyeshadows and lipglosses, and now that they have some men’s products it is a great company for both women and men.

  26. Sara Logan says:

    I haven’t used too much Mary Kay but would love the opportunity to!

  27. I dont wear alot of makeup. I just dont have the time but I may just try a little harder especially if I win some Mary Kay

  28. sheila musselman askins says:

    i have never bought a mary kay product that i didnt love! love the lip gloss..i must try it next!

  29. thanks for the mens aftershave review, i’ve always heard mary kay has really good stuff, i would like to try some of their mens stuff.

  30. Jeannette Laframboise says:

    I used to use Mary Kay make-up a few years back but the lady I bought from moved away and I never did get another consultant. I have always loved their make-up and have missed having it. I also didn’t realize they now carry men’s products too. Perhaps both my husband and I might find our way back to Mary Kay. Thanks so much for the review and the info!

  31. rebecca day says:

    nice review! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  32. Johnetta Dawson says:

    I like Mary Kay’s moisturizers. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  33. Lanie K. says:

    Thanks for the review. The lip gloss sounds awesome. I would love to try that sometime. Also, the aftershave sounds pretty awesome for men.

  34. DARLA KIDDER says:

    Does the lip gloss give you fuller lips or are they you’re own ?

    • I think my daughter’s lips are just poofy like that, lol! However, Mary Kay may sell a lip plumper or enhancer. I will try to remember to ask Nancy later today for you. 🙂


  35. Mitchie Talavera says:

    I like the lip gloss 🙂

  36. Marlene V says:

    I also think that the emerald colour would be amazing on you!

  37. desiree says:

    wow that great color and then your face good color and show it off great

  38. Debbie Petch says:

    I love Mary Kay’s hand lotions! Thanks.

  39. Alyshia F. says:

    Thanks for the review was considering buying the cooling after shave for my husband but wasn’t sure now I am Thanks!

  40. Thanks for the review, they look really cute on you!

  41. You are so cute with your Mary Kay makeup on! 🙂

  42. Joyce Mlinek says:

    My husband would like the after-shave that does not contain alcohol and I would like the lip gloss.

  43. ur so pretty, so, so pretty!
    loved the review and the fact that u talked about a men s product.

    • I will tell my daughter that you think so. 🙂 Thank you so much! I helped make that. 😉


  44. Nice review
    Just a suggestion…
    To get men to try Mary Kay’s products for men, don’t use the word Mary Kay as men using Mary Kay’s products just sound unmanly, use the term MKmen instead, just like it says on the Cooling After-Shave Gel

  45. Azslyn Cole says:

    i am definitely interested in buying some of their great products thanks for the great review =}
