Sometimes, my makeup just works. And when it does, I…
Mary Kay has released a collection of gorgeous shades inspired by the world’s most precious jewels. The Midnight Jewels Eye Color Palettes are anything but ordinary, from the geometric design to the buttery, gem-toned shadows, these looks are versatile and stunning.
Each palette contains five complementary, buildable shades so you can go from day to night, depending on the colour intensity. The formula applies smoothly and evenly for high-impact colour that lasts.
These palettes are magnetic and meant to fit in the Mary Kay compact, which has two layers (the top one is magnetic too, and the bottom is for storing tools but I just threw the second palette in there for safe keeping).
I started with the light green all over and the darker green in the outer V and crease.
Blended out crease to browbone with the light brown.
A bit of the darker brown as liner.
Centre light bronze shimmer in the centre of my lid for a highlight effect.
I started with the pink in the outer corner and worked towards the centre where I added some of the lighter blue.
Then I applied the darker blue to the outer V and a bit into the crease and blended in the darker grey.
I used the lighter grey to blend out the crease to brow bone (And it was a bit patchy.)
THOUGHTS: The one thing I’ll note about both these palettes is that the shimmers are much like MAC’s Mineralize formula. It goes on intense when using a damp brush (a spray of Fix+ will do it), but you can get a nice light shimmer if you apply dry. And as with all shimmer shadows, wear a primer! EMERALD NOIR is the stand out of the two for sure.
