Mary Kay Spring 2016 Into the Garden Collection: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For Spring 2016, Mary Kay has partnered up with renowned fashion designer Patricia Bonaldi to create a beautiful garden-inspired collection. Today I have some swatches of the Into the Garden Lip & Eye Color Compact ($45 CAD) and the Into the Garden Nail Lacquers ($10 CAD each). To read on, click.......
Mary Kay Into the Garden Lip & Eye Color Compact
Into the Garden Lip & Eye Color Compact ($45 CAD):
I've honestly never seen a fun palette like this from Mary Kay so I was very excited to try this out! Housed in a cardboard compact covered in beautiful flowers, this palette holds four eyeshadows, three glosses, and a dual-ended sponge/brush applicator.

The shadows here have the classic Mary Kay formulation that's super soft, silky, and pigmented. The texture is bit fall-out prone; however, the shadows have an amazing color payoff and the formulation feels almost cream-like to the touch.

The three lip glosses included are all very sheer. You get a clear gloss with shimmers, a pretty pink with subtle golden shimmers, and a fresh coral with some barely noticeable shimmers. I am not a fan of gloss and shadow combinations so even though the glosses are light and non-sticky, I wish the palette had more shadows instead.

Mary Kay Into the Garden Nail Lacquer & Nail Applique
Into the Garden Nail Lacquers & Nail Appliques ($10 CAD each):
In addition to a pretty palette, this spring collection includes three beautiful polishes and a set of soft plastic nail stickers.

Coral Blossom: Beautiful fresh coral pink; great pigmentation, rich and easy to apply.
Pink Magnolia: Pale nude with a hint of pink; the pigmentation is decent, I used two coats on some nails and three on the others.
Sheet Lilac: Light lilac gray; this one is also decently pigmented, two to three coats for an even coverage.
Coral Blossom, two coats with no top coat.
Pink Magnolia, two to three coats with no top coat.
Sheet Lilac, two coats with no top coat.
Into the Garden Soap Set ($20 CAD) & Beauty Blotters Oil-Absorbing Tissues ($8.50 CAD):
Also included in this collection is a three-piece soap set and a 75-sheet blotting paper pack. Both are packaged in beautiful floral patterns; the soap has a lovely and fresh floral scent and the blotting sheets are generously sized.
