Mary Kay Limited Edition Hello, Sunshine Collection

Today have I some more new products from Mary Kay that I've been using for the past few weeks! These products are part of their new limited edition Hello, Sunshine Collection which I believe will be available on February 15th. 

This line features Springy Eye Duos in the shades Summer Sunset and Stonewashed, Creamy Lip Colors in the shades Retro Rose and Carefree Coral, a Lip Gel in the shade Cherry Twist, and two Nail Lacquers in the shades Lemon Parfait and Carefree Coral.

The products that I have here (from left to right) are the Lip Gel in Cherry Twist, the Nail Lacquer in Carefree Coral, the Springy Eye Duo in the shade Summer Sunset, and the Creamy Lip Color in Carefree Coral.


Lip Gel in Cherry Twist: The color of this product is described perfectly by the name. It is a sheer cherry red color, and it has kind of a gel look on the lips because it isn't very dark and opaque. I really like this product for days when I want red on my lips but don't want that bold look. This feels comfortable on the lips also, and lasts about 4 hours on me.

Creamy Lip Color in Carefree Coral: This product is a medium, coral color with a smooth moisturizing texture. The texture and pigmentation reminds me a lot of the Revlon Lip Butters. It feels comfortable to wear, doesn't accentuate lines and dryness on my lips, and last a decent amount of time. I can usually get 5+ hours of wear with this on.

Spring Eye Duo in Summer Sunset: This is the product I was most intrigued by! It has a texture that reminds me of the Maybelline Bouncy Blushes, except these are cream eyeshadows. One shade is a light yellow and the other is a shimmery pink/almost rose-gold shade. I like to wear the pink shade alone, and the yellow shade I like using as a base to make my eyeshadows appear brighter. When I wear a primer with these I don't have any issues with lasting power or creasing.

Here are swatches of the products:

Nail Lacquer in Carefree Coral: This shade is a pretty, light coral color. I usually love the formula of Mary Kay Nail Lacquers, but this one was a little sheerer than the other shades I own. I had to apply three coats to get it to a decent opacity. I like the color, so I'll continue to use it, but the formula isn't my favorite.

Here is a swatch of the Nail Lacquer:

I'm really happy with this collection for the most part! My favorite is the lip gel, and I really wish it wasn't limited edition! I also love the light blue packaging on these products! They're so cute!

What do you think of the Hello, Sunshine Collection? Are there any products that you would try?
