Review & Tutorial : Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact transform Day to Night Spring Makeup Look

Not sure if you realised two days ago was the first day of spring for 2016. Besides winter, I love to travel during spring because there is something undeniably inspiring about warm sunshine and fresh flowers, beautiful blooms and lush greens.

And I just received this pretty palette from Mary Kay at my doorstep which is just in time for spring! Mary Kay launched their limited edition Into the Garden Collection this spring with assortment of garden-inspired beauty must-haves developed in collaboration with Brazilian born fashion designer Patricia Bonaldi which perfectly captures fashion’s current fascination with florals. 

Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact is the all-in-one mirrored compact features four garden-inspired eye shadows and three ultrasheer lip glosses for endless color possibilities.

A close up look at the colour. So beautiful right?

My first thought when I saw the colour is I love the colour combination of the eye shadow which is easily suits all colour skin tone to create day to night makeup. And the lip colour combination is pretty has three very wearable colours to suits the eye shadow makeup.

Not forgetting the pretty season’s garden print on the casing which was made from hard cardboard material which would be great for travelling because it will be lighter than my usual metal casing.

As mentioned eye colours has a good combination of lighter & darker shade tone for me to blend to create day makeup to night makeup look easily.

Swatch of Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact. 

Colours are really pigmented, smooth and easy to pick up really well with one swipe. And out of the four colours, three of them (namely Natural Taupe, Pink and Violet) has a little bit shimmering effect. 

I know some people are not into shimmering eye colour because they felt it's not easy to blend and looks a little bit too much. I think they key in using shimmer eye colour is the blending and always remember less is more! I actually put on shimmering eye colour daily because I felt it enhance my eyes and gives that extra "oomph" focus on my eyes!

Tutorial how to transform from day makeup to night makeup look using Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact to create my spring makeup look this season! 

Day look : I applied Natural Taupe colour lightly all over my eyelid  to brighten up the eyes. Next I took a little bit of Pink colour and apply from the centre eyelid towards the inner corners of the eyes. After I'm done, I put on Violet colour and blend from outer corner of my eyes to the inner corner of my eyes,  carefully blending in the color to obscure the borders between the shades. Don't forget to take a little bit of Natural Taupe colour and apply at the browbone as a highlighter.

Night look : Using the Day Look I have created, I top up darker shade Plum Brown and apply along the upper lash lines, again applying more color at the outer corners and slowly blend towards the centre of the eyes to create the smokey eyes look.

After putting on eye colour, I line the upper lash lines with black eyeliner before finishing it up with my favourite mascara. 

Honestly I think this eye colours in this palette are great for everyday use because colours are really sweet and easy to play around and would be great benefit to beginners and to bring for travelling (because it's really light!).

And pink and violet are actually my sort of colours combination I wear quite often actually ... but in my case I have to match different palette to get this colour combination before having this palette colour combination in one palette. I personally think Pink and Violet are really a nice colour combination to give the sweet and romantic eyes makeup look, ah perfect to go for a date with this to mesmerize your sweetheart!

Next move to lip colour in Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact ; Nude, Pink & Coral lip gloss.

Swatch of Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact lip gloss colour.

Although the lip colour looks really pigmented on the packaging but when I swatch it it's pretty sheer... after all it does comply with its ultra sheer lip gloss formulation. 

Among the 3 lip gloss colour, I only use Coral most of the time because Nude lip colour doesn't really make much difference on my lips (because of my pinkish natural lip colour) and Pink looks too frosty on me. 

I would really love if there is a red lip colour because that's my favourite shade for lip colour!

But then again colour are really personally preference and I usually prefer darker or brighter lip colour shade because of my natural pinkish shade.

Which shade do you like the most among this 3 colours?

Although this is a lip gloss colour but it has some moisturizing effect to keep the lips hydrated and lips not feeling sticky after application, leaving the lips looking smooth and healthy. However the staying power only last me few hours with light meal in between.

This is my final spring makeup look I have created using Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact. 

Ah...What do you think? Pass or not ? 

I think I'm ready for a spring picnic if I put on my cute floral hairband and dress! 

So if you are the kind who loves all in one colours in one palette, I think you can consider Mary Kay Into the Garden Colour Compact because all the colours are simply wearable!
