Today's review is on another part of the new Mary Kay At Play line called the Baked Eye Trios. In my last post I reviewed the Jelly Lip Glosses and explained more about this new line.
I don't think Mary Kay has ever done baked eye shadows before, so I was interested to try these out. There are 4 different eyeshadow trios: Ocean View, Tuxedo, On the Horizon, and Earth Bound; each cost $10 which I was pretty excited about. This whole line of products is pretty affordable since everything is $10 each!
Here are some swatches (swatched dry over primer) , and eye looks that I created with each of the palettes:
Most of the shades applied nicely dry (see swatches above), except the white shade in the Tuxedo trio was a little patchy. They all apply more vibrant with a lot more color payoff when applied wet though. If you try these out I definitely recommend using most of the shades wet, unless you are going for a more subtle look. In the eye looks above, the in the first two I used the shadows completely dry, and in the last two I used them wet.
Also, I did not have much fall out when using these. I got couple specks on my cheeks from the lightest colors, but this is not a problem if the shadows are used wet. All of these eyeshadows lasted all day on my eyes with a primer, and I did not have any problems with creasing or fading.
The packaging on these are very nice and sturdy. It is similar to Maybelline's baked duos, but these are bigger. I also think the color selection is pretty nice! Although I would have loved to see a purple trio, I enjoy that On the Horizon and Earth Bound are are more neutral and wearable, while Ocean View and Tuxedo are more bold.
Overall I really like these trios, and I'll continue using them. It is pretty convenient to have colors all together in a trio for traveling. I also feel like these colors are unique and aren't repeated in Mary Kay's regular mineral eyeshadows. And keep in mind that they can be used wet or dry, and most of these shadows look their best wet. I still think these are worth the price, and I think out of all these shades there's a trio here for everyone. I still hope in the future that Mary Kay will make a larger color selection of though.
Do you plan on trying any thing from the Mary Kay At Play Line?
