New York Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: schedule, looks and such with Mary Kay the sponsor of Project Runway

Hello Gorgeous!
Sigh-not going to New York for the shows. Though  I will be following along on the internet.
If you want to, use this link!

Now, what kind of look to wear to the fashion shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week?

Maybe something from Mary Kay? I wore these product samples that were generously shared from the Mary Kay company during the San Diego Tall Ship festival. I can honestly say they colors wore true all day long and I received many compliments on my pink lip gloss!

 Join me as I share a bit more about each product and how they can take you from being aboard the ship to in front of the catwalk!

Mary Kay has a powerful story in her desire to help women.

Mary Kay Ash was an original. As an entrepreneur and a philanthropist, she started her business from a tiny store in Dallas, Texas, with five products and one big dream. That dream was to inspire women to transform their lives, and in doing so, help other women achieve success.  Read the full bio here.

 This is the Mary Kay clear lip liner. It's just what you need on a humid day to hold your lip products in line! $12.00 on the website.
A smooth, creamy, waterproof formula in a retractable pencil that never needs sharpening. Glides on easily with a clean, precise line that perfectly defines lips.
  • Long-lasting formula.
  • Applies smoothly and evenly for a perfect outline every time.
  • Clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy.
  • Dermatologist-tested.
Getting ready for Fall makeup means the need for a great red lipstick.
This Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick in Firecracker is just the right shade for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week shows. $18.00 on the website.

Intensely moisturizing. Exquisitely smoothing. It’s like a color-infused fountain of youth for your lips.
  • Instantly drenches lips in moisture and locks it in for endless comfort.
  • Infused with advanced skin care ingredients, the formula smooths the appearance of fine lines and helps lips look fuller.
  • Just a push of the clear, click-button top releases pure, radiant color from its ultrastylish case.

 This Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick in Pink Cherie is also $18.00 and was the staple color over the Labor Day Weekend in San Diego.It has a smooth satin finish and was perfect for time in the sun.

 I am a die hard lip gloss wearer and the Mary Kay NouriShine Plus lip gloss in Pink Parfait is smooth, non sticky and easy to layer without beading and balling up. $14.00 on the website.

Get brilliant shine and an instant boost of moisture that leaves lips feeling nourished.

  • Custom-bottle fits in Mary Kay® Compact and Compact Pro®.

 The Mary Kay eyeliner, in basic, simple, necessity black is a perfect staple to keep in: your purse, your desk, your backpack, your locker and gym bag. Why? Because it can do eyeliner, smudge into a shadow, fill in brows and jot down a note when you can't find a pen. $12.00 on the website.

Long-wearing, ultra-creamy formula glides on for waterproof, smudge-proof and fade-resistant wear. Shaper included.
  • Rich, stay-true color perfectly defines eyes for more than eight hours.
  • Intense shades help lashes appear thicker.
  • Ophthalmologist-tested.
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

 I am a mascara fanatic and it's definitely the one product that I would take with me to a deserted island!
The Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara in black is worthy of being the one item taken on sabbatical! Just $14.00.
This extremely volumizing, superthickening, all-in-one formula creates the look of big, bold, separated lashes that last all day.

  • Clinically tested for skin irritancy and allergy; suitable for sensitive eyes.
  • Fragrance-free

 The Mary Kay Lash Love lengthening mascara
is $15.00 on the website. It's a nice mascara, but as a person who loves the biggest, longest, fluffiest lashes, this mascara doesn't meet my needs. For all my gals who love a natural and defined lash, this is your mascara!

Long, strong, seriously separated lashes. What’s not to love?
  • Creates bold, instantly intensified length of lashes.

 The Mary Kay Bronzing Powder is light, luminous, gives a dewy finish and is perfect for day to night looks and is something you can wear everyday! $18.00 on the website.

And I used mine to get ready in the morning before sailing and then touched up on the boat during the docking so I would be dinner ready!

Contour for dimension or dust on all over for that just-back-from-the-beach look anytime.
  • Creates a natural-looking, sun-kissed glow.
  • Adds warmth to any skin tone.
  • Luminous pearl finish is buildable.
  • Applies easily and never looks dry on skin.
  • Controls shine and won’t settle into fine lines, wrinkles or pores.
 *Sigh* These are the products I used from Mary Kay to get Labor Day weekend ready, and now they are the items I will use to help get ready for my upcoming events. Thank you Mary Kay for the samples!
