Mary Kay Summer 2015 New Products: NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss & Mineral Cheek Duos Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Happy Sunday everyone and happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! Today I want to share with you some new releases from Mary Kay for the summer. To see swatches and reviews of the new products, click.......

Mary Kay Beauty That Counts NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss ($18 CAD):
These two new shades of the Mary Kay NouriShine Lip Glosses are created for the Beauty That Counts campaign ($1 from each gloss sold will be donated to support women living with cancer). Each made with a swirl of two best-selling shades from the NouriShine Plus line, the glosses are very creamy and non-sticky. They come in a simple clear tube with a plain doe-foot applicator.

Create Change: swirl of Pink Sateen (medium rose with iridescent sparkles) and Berry Tart (sheer berry shimmer)
In Harmony: swirl of Café Au Lait (brown pink cream) and Cream & Sugar (sheer pale gold sparkles)

The two shades in each tube come in a lovely swirl pattern. However, the colors will eventually blend together inside the tube after a few uses.

Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Duos ($20 CAD, compact sold separately):
If you enjoy a travel-friendly cheek compact, then these Mineral Cheek Duos are the perfect option. Each duo comes with a highlight and a blush. The formulation for all three is slightly powdery but very still very smooth and pigmented.

Spiced Poppy: Super pigmented burnt orange with a satin finish paired with a warm golden champagne highlight. Because this one is so intense, a little goes a long, long way.
Juicy Guava: Bright coral with super subtle sparkles paired with a highlight similar to the one from Spiced Poppy.
Ripe Watermelon: Cool tone bright pink satin matte with a pale pink highlight.

Mineral Cheek Duos
I am no fan of lip glosses in general, but the NouriShine Plus Lip Glosses are really creamy and lightweight, making the lips feel very hydrated and comfortable. The Mineral Cheek Duos are pigmented and smooth. They kind of remind me of the Nars Duo Intensity Blushes, but the formulation of these are much better.

The new Mary Kay products are available May 16th through your local Mary Kay Consultant.
