Mary Kay The Art of Nature Collection for Spring 2012

Nothing takes me to my happy place like a spring collection with beautiful packaging and Mary Kay is the winner so far this season! I'm just adoring the bright green containers and beautiful artwork which was actually designed by a Mary Kay employee: Jean-Paul Khabbaz who is their Senior Art Director as well as a part time painter.

Dual Lip Glaze - $18 - in 2 shades: Glistening Sand and Warm Coral - inspired by the calming gleam of the ocean, it instantly moisturizes lips with a high-shine finish while soothing botanicals such as aloe, shea butter and safflower oil glide on smoothly to soften and protect lips. What's neat about it of course is the double tube design - the outer tube contains a clear gloss while the inner tube contains the colour - once you squeeze it both come out and mix together to give you colour and shine.

It must be somewhat interesting because my husband picked it up off the counter and started playing with it and he is usually blind to my makeup! My only caution is you have to be careful to squeeze it in the center of the tube or they won't squeeze out evenly and you'll end up with either too much colour or gloss.
Fluid Eye Color - $18 - in 3 shades: Rainforest, Spring Leaf and Pearl - an easy to apply and velvety soft eyeshadow that contains aloe, shea butter and avocado butter to also make it good for you. Use it by itself or as a base for your powder eyeshadow.

I like the click tube and Pearl is a great colour if you are looking for something easy to perk up your eye look with a minimum of fuss!
Natural Cheek Tint - $20 - in 2 shades: Pink Pearl and Sheer Copper - offers a lightweight and easy to apply formula that glides on smoothly and looks beautiful.
Nail Lacquer - $10 - in 3 shades: Lava, Crushed Pearl and Grass Green as well as a Top/Base Coat which is a particular favourite of mine! Check out swatches here.
Compact Mini Skin - complete your Art of Nature look with this limited edition mini skin - free with the purchase of a Mary Kay Compact Mini or sold separately for $5
And if you need any more incentive to buy, with the purchase of $55 from the Mary Kay The Art of Nature Collection, you will receive this adorable Zip Clutch free!

Available exclusively through your Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant. If you don't have one you can find one at or call 1-866-455-5454.
