I was a Mary Kay consultant for about a year. I know a lot about this product line. There are many things that I like and some that I don't. I really love the facial cleansers and the hand lotions. I also love the lipglosses and lipsticks. The items that I don't recommend are mostly eye products. I am someone who loves eyeshadows. I love shadows that have big color payoff and come in all the colors of the rainbow. I find that many of Mary Kay's shadows are muted colors most suited for a work environment. The shadows do not have much color payoff. When you apply them, the color looks much lighter than the way that it looks in the palette. In addition, you have to do a lot of layering in order to even get the shadows to make an impression. I also do not recommend using Mary Kay's line of brushes. There are much cheaper brushes that apply better. These brushes shed a lot! My best advice with the Mary Kay line is to pick and choose what products you like. The good thing about Mary Kay is that you actually get to see how the products look on you before you buy them.
