My Very First Review

I have to say I was a little nervous about giving you my opinions on makeup cuz why would you care about my thoughts on the subject? But I will tell you I am a makeup hoarder. You should see my makeup drawer, it is like a mini makeup store. My love/addiction started at a young age.
When I was 12, I used to babysit for Lady who was a Mary Kay consultant. So instead of paying me in cash, she would pay me in makeup. This was a dream come true for a young Ruthy. I love makeup, always will.
So when I heard about the chance to try some MK makeup out, the 12 year old came out and said, yes please.
Let's just say Mary Kay had me at hello. Look at the pretty box my loot arrived it. Well done on the package change, Mary.
Now I will break everything down for ya.
I was most excited to use the Mary Kay Time wise microdermabrasion refine and replenish. Cuz let's face it, I am no longer 12 and my few freckles are now turning into age spots. This so far has not disappointed. It feels really good on the skin, it's like a fine scrub. So..... perfect for my thick skin. I will let you know if it returns me to my youthful self.
Then I was sent a mini compact filled with 3 eye shadows and a blush. This has been a perfect
throw-in-my-purse-and-do-makeup-on-the-go compact. It has a mirror and mini brushes so you don't have to haul a makeup bag around. Which is nice when you are a carrying a bunch of medical supplies in your purse and you don't have much room.
I was also given creme lipstick, in Fuchsia, which I bravely tried to rock, but then blotted it to a stain, cuz I am not so brave after all. But more power to my fuchsia lovin sistas!
The surprise hit for me was the lash love mascara. I really did love it. My lashes looked nice and full. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
So this has been a fun week playing with my new makeup. I will keep you posted about the refine scrub.
