Mary Kay's Tropical Fruits Collection Just in time for Spring!

Mary Kay has come out with its limited edition Tropical Fruits Collection just in time for spring!
The collection includes 2 cheek glazes, 3 lip nectar's and a gorgeous dual shade cream highlighter.


The 2 cheek glazes retail for $20 each and come in 2 exotic shades, Mandarin & Pomegranate. They are infused with extracts or mandarin orange, watermelon, peach and vitamin E. They have a very sheer texture that is buildable and can not only be used on the cheeks but also the lips. The glazes have a gel texture that is super lightweight and no greasy which I like.

The Mandarin shade didn't really show up on my skin tone but that didn't stop me from finding a way to use it! I simply apply it as a base and then layer it with a powder blush which makes the color of the blush a lot bolder. This is a great solution if you own any blushes that aren't too pigmented, now you can find a way to make them pop!

The pomegranate shade was really nice. It can be subtle at first which I like for the days I simply want a bit of color but it totally buildable so you can make it as bold as you want. Its great for a work look during the day and when you add a bit more you're ready for a dinner date or party.

As you can see I have already been playing with mine!


The cream highlighter retails for $18 and has 2 neutral shades swirled together that makes it perfect for all skin tones. Again this product is buildable and can go from sheer to a night bright golden color. It is made with a skin conditioning formula that helps it glide on and illuminate the skin.

What I really like about this product is that its universal meaning I can use it to highlight areas of the face but also as an eyeshadow or a highlight to the brow bone. It blends well so really the sky is the limit and its such a stunning color that it would make a great eyeshadow base or an all over lid color.



The lip nectar's retail for $16.50 each come in 3 shades Coconut, Mango & Passionfruit. They are a moisturizing balm with the longevity of a lipstick! These pretty lip nectar's are infused with mango and shea butter, jojoba plus antioxidants such as apricot kernel oil and vitamin E to help hydrate the lips.

I really like the texture and feel of these lip nectar's, they are creamy and feel light yet are so pigmented that if applied with sparingly with your finger it could very well be used as a lip stain. I found the mango color a bit too orange for my skin tone but will totally be using it in my kit. My favorite has got to be the coconut shade as I am a total nude lip fan.

Overall this collection is great and includes a few wonderful basics. They all have a smooth texture and are lightweight which is key for me. I will be having a lot of fun with this collection over the summer that's for sure!

Mary Kay products are available online so if you're interested in trying out this collection hurry because remember they are a limited edition!

Great post! The gel stains are so pretty - yah I like to layer powder blushes over them too to make them pop. Haven't done my review of the lip glazes yet but totally loving! Love all the shades. The cream highlighter is pretty but I have so many like that lol. All in all, Mary Kay is really steppin' it up!
