Eye Love Wednesday - Mary Kay and Elizabeth Arden eye shadows

Mary Kay Mineral Eye Colour - $7.50 - in 6 new shades: Golden Vanilla, Polished Stone, Gold Coast, Truffle, Lime and Sterling - that offer one-swipe coverage and colour that is long-lasting, fade resistant that won't crease or settle into fine lines. With an antioxidant formula containing Vitamins A, C & E that offer protection against wrinkle causing free radicals and oil-absorbing properties.

I go through periods where my eyes are super sensitive, are red and water a lot - allergies maybe? Anyhow, during these times I have to use something super sensitive on my eyes or nothing at all and these are one of the few shadows my eyes can tolerate during those times - the lime colour is also excellent at balancing out the red!

(Psssst! There is also a new Mineral Cheek Color - Dark Cherry for $12)

Available through your Mary Kay Beauty Consultant - if you don't have one, get yourself one through 1-866-455-5454 or online at www.marykay.ca

They offer smooth texture, outstanding pigment and crease-proof wear but what makes them really interesting is the skincare benefits that they contain - both helping to improve the appearance of signs of aging in the eye area while protecting skin from future environmental skin stressors with: Retinyl Linoleate - a Vitamin A derivative that helps minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles as well as supports skin's own natural collagen production; Vitamin C & E - to neutralize free radicals; and Advanced Pigment Technology - pigments begin with a dry texture but this unique technology coats each particle with a blend of silky silicone, Retinyl Linoleate and antioxidants to give them a luxurious, smooth feel. Then the particles are put through a process that makes them smaller and spread out, so they become surrounded by even more silicone and vitamins. As the particles spread out, they create a fine layer that floats on top of the eye lid instead of settling into fine lines.
