Mary Kay Summer 2016: Natural Palette Eyeshadow Bundle + Rose Gold Compact Mini review

I love a good, travel-size neutral eyeshadow palette. And this Mary Kay limited edition Natural Palette set is exactly what I need right now!

In this bundle, you get six of the Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadows and a magnetic small Rose Gold palette compact with a hidden compartment in the bottom for a brush or applicator.

If you’ve never tried Mary Kay’s shadows, you’re missing out. Although they are small, they pack a punch of smooth, buttery pigments. This bundle is a great mix of mattes and shimmers, so you can really just grab this and go if you’re in a rush or travelling light. I plan on bringing it with me on my trip to Chicago next week for an easy natural everyday look.

The only shadow that didn’t show up in swatches was Sweet Cream, an exact dupe for my skintone. This is a perfect base for me. The rest are soft and buildable, not extremely opaque just natural.

I used all six shadows to create this dimensional sculpted eye look, and the darkest shade even works as a soft shadow liner!

I experienced no fallout with these shades and they wore well over primer even through a sweaty workout. I’d call that a win!

I love the design of this compact. The ripples are “a reminder that when you touch someone’s life, you can create a ripple effect that carries far beyond.” You can buy this separately too and it works great for any other Mary Kay products.

In fact, you can buy everything bundled or solo. The pricetag seems a bit high for what it is though. See, the issue with receiving product for review is that I may LOVE the product but would never pay the price in real life. I’d definitely recommend the compact though, it’s super cute and portable.

Compact + shadow bundle – $76 CAD
Shadow bundle – $54 CAD
Compact only – $22 CAD
(Also note that bundling everything up provides no savings at all).

  • You were able to get some great looks from the compact. I wasn’t so lucky unfortunately. 🙁 The two darkest shades were super buttery, but the lighter shades came up in clumps for me. 🙁 One thing I love about the Mary Kay pan products is you can just pop them out and put them in a Z palette!
