Mary Kay Limited Edition Runway Bold Collection | Eye Color Palette
Mary Kay Limited Edition Runway Bold Collection Eye Color Palette ($26 CAD):
Housed in a simple plastic compact with a clear lid, the Runway Bold Collection Eye Color Palette includes five shimmering shadows. I am not a fan of the long and thin rectangular shape of the shades but the formulation is great!

Included is a soft gold shimmer, a medium brown shimmer with gold sparkles, a metallic silver, a shimmery blue, and a satin black with subtle blue shimmers. The shadows are slightly soft and fallout-prone but the pigmentation is fantastic. All the shades are super buttery and rich and I'm quite happy with the pricing of the palette. Mary Kay palettes tend to be a bit expensive but the $26 price point of this one is very reasonable.

Mary Kay Limited Edition Runway Bold Collection | Gel Liner Duo
Mary Kay Limited Edition Runway Bold Collection Gel Liner Duo ($20 CAD):
This is a gorgeous gel liner duo equipped with a hidden eyeliner brush in the cap. Included are a metallic brown and a metallic gold. Both shades are incredibly pigmented and they set to a completely transfer and smudge proof finish.

The included brush is nice in quality as well. To use, simply pull it out of the cap. You can also push the opposite end of the brush into the cap to get an easier-to-grip brush handle.
As you can see from the swatches below, the gel liner is packed to the brim with metallic particles. The wear is excellent as well; the liner does get slightly crusty if you layer on too much but there the colors are very waterproof.

Mary Kay Limited Edition Runway Bold Collection | Nail Lacquers
Mary Kay Limited Edition Runway Bold Collection Nail Lacquers ($10 CAD each):
A gorgeous inky navy cream, Blue Debut is a lovely fall color with a super pigmented formulation. I used two coats for the swatches below with no top coat.

Gold is Bold is a cool-tone gold shimmer. The polish is slightly sheer with one coat but after two coats the color is mostly opaque. I used two coats for the swatches below (with no top coat).

A rose gold shimmer, Rosy Encore is also nice and easy to work with. The polish has a good amount of shimmers; I used two coats with no top coat for the swatches below.
