My poor fifty. She's been parked in the garage for weeks with a flat tire, and hubby finally had time to get her tire repaired last saturday. I pulled her out bc its Friday and she's my weekend car and made it to my daughters school before she went flat again. Sucks. I miss her, she's so fun to drive. Back into the garage. #tireprobs

I was sent an amazing box of Mary Kay Goodies by Influenster towards the end of April. Actually it arrived the very date of my birthday and was a very welcome surprise. Inside was a bunch of makeup that has quickly become the basis of many of my makeup looks since then.
In all honesty, I have not touched Mary Kay anything since high school. I was not impressed with the brand back then and have had zero interest since. UNTIL NOW!! Mary Kay has really stepped up their game. The products that I have been testing out are AMAZING. Yes, AHHH-MAZING!!
While I have been playing around with these products day by day, I have to share the cream eye color with you first. I was sent the shade Apricot Twist.
This is a gorgeous pale gold shadow that can be used as a cream color base or shadow. Worn sheer it is a pretty wash of gold on the lid, and can easily be built up to a more opaque appearance. I love to layer it with other shadows so that it is only remotely apparent, but obvious that there is something special on my lids.
Here it is in the package as well as swatched on my hand. That is one finger tip swatch, not built up at all.
In the pictures below I have used it as more of a shadow base, topping it with several shadow from my Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette. On my face is:
Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation - Ecru: http://popsu.gr/swVL
MAC Prolongwear Concealor NW15: http://popsu.gr/swWd
MAC Lingering Brow Pencil & Cork Eye Shadow
Then I applied the Mark Kay Apricot Twist Shadow to my lid and blended out the edges, followed by a layer of "Silk Teddy" and "Sexpresso, " from the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette on the outer corner. I used Mary Kay's Gel Liner on my lids and applied false lashes.
I finished up my face with Mary Kay Blush in the shade Shy and Mary Kay Bronzer in Light/Medium. Followed by MAC's Creme Cup Lipstick: http://popsu.gr/swWh
You can see how the Apricot Twist really shines through on the lid, underneath the shadow.
Here is another look that I wore, more of a smokey eye constructed with the Apricot Twist eye shadow as the eye shadow base to anchor the darker shades onto my lid. It really warms up the brown tone of the shadow that I put on top. Ignore my hair, this was on a very humid rainy day.

I will share more of the products as well as individual reviews in the future. For now though, I wanted to share how much I have been enjoying this particular shadow. It is so versatile and just a great shade for everything!
Not sure if I'm missing a vitamin, but my nails are peeling from the tips very badly. They feel weak. I've never had thin or weak nails, ever, in fact they've been strong like bull all my life. #sallyhansen, #sallypleasehelpme, #nailprobs, #ivegotissues, #aintnobodygottimeforthis
Operation what the heck does Cracker Jack bark at every night is over. Culprit 2 will not be apprehended due to the fact that it carries an atomic bomb in it's ass. We let it mosey on off. Culprit 1 was a ghost, 3was an alarm clock on a wrist watch. #skunk, #ohshit, #stanky, #dog, #barking, #midnightstalker
Abel's birthday cake. The ladies/sisters of La Victoria Bakery continue to amaze. They've made so many birthday cakes for us over the years and each one is better and more memorable than the last. This was chocolate and white chocolate raspberry ganache. Excellent! #lavictoriabakery, @lavictoriabakery,
