Mary Kay At Play New Spring Colors: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Products featured were provided for review.
Hey guys, today I have some reviews of the new Mary Kay At Play products to share with you! The Mary Kay At Play collection features bold and trendy color makeups and this new line-up is perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer season. To check out some swatches and reviews, click.......

Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trio ($12 each):
My favorite of the entire collection, these two gorgeous baked eyeshadows trios are richly pigmented and apply beautifully. Both trios contain a lot of shimmer so there is minor fall-out and grittiness but the colors are so fresh and fun, perfect for spring and summer. With one highlighting color and two brighter color each, these trios have all the colors that you need to create a fun and flirty eye look.

Mary Kay At Play Eye Crayon ($12 each):
The At Play Eye Crayons are two metallic eyeshadow pencils that promises true color payoff and lasting wear. Over the Taupe applied nicely and had a decent wear but I wish it was richer in color. Teal Me More, however, definitely lacked pigmentation, it also applied quite patchily. Within a couple of hours Teal Me More also creased quite a bit so it's definitely not to be worn on its own.

Mary Kay At Play Lip Crayon ($12 each):
The At Play Lip Crayons are two sheer buildable lip crayons with a subtle shimmer. Both of these had a bit of that old school lipstick scent. Purple Punch is a bright orchid, very on trend for 2014 and Coral Me Crazy is an orangey coral. Both crayons applied nicely but I personally don't like the semi-frost finish because it tends to make my lips look wrinklier than they already are.
In addition, I really wish that these two lip crayons were twistable because even though I have a large barrel pencil sharpener intended for chubbier pencil makeups, it just would be so much more convenient if I didn't have to manually sharpen them.

Mary Kay At Play Jelly Lip Gloss ($12 each):
The jelly lip gloss are two very adorable, shimmer-free, lightly pigmented lip glosses. These are scent free as far as I can tell. When worn on the lips, Poppy Love is a light orange and Violet Vixen is a subtle pink. The formula for these felt a bit sticky but they are very shiny. I think these are good if you are looking for a couple of simple lip glosses that adds a light pop of color!

Overall, the stars of the collection are definitely the two Baked Eye Trios; they are definite worth picking up if you enjoy bright summery eyeshadow colors. The Eye Crayons were a bit of a miss and the lip products were decent but not amazing (the Hello, Sunshine! collection has some really good lip products though). Hopefully my review was helpful! Thanks for reading!
