Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Highlighter (C$18 for 2.8 g):
Sold individually as refills (the unfilled Perfect Palette pictured here costs C$21), the limited-edition Precious Gems Highlighter is a pressed powder highlighter embossed with a three-dimensional geometric pattern. "Canary Diamond" is a pale gold shimmer and "Rose Sapphire" is a soft pink shimmer. Both shades are silky and creamy, packed with fine, iridescent shimmers that provide a very sparkly finish.

Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow
Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow (C$18 for 3.4 g):
Available in two shades, the Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow comes in a plastic lipgloss tube paired with a doe-foot applicator. The formulation is lightweight and easily blendable, setting to a mostly smudge-proof finish. "Amethyst" is a pale icy lavender and "Graphite" is a medium silvery gray. Both shades are full of iridescent shimmers that provide a beautiful pop of shine on the lids. These liquid shadows can be used on their own but I think they are best dabbed on top of a base shadow for a more sophisticated look.

Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Sparkle Lipstick in "Sunstone" & "Ruby": Review and Swatches
Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Sparkle Lipstick
Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Sparkle Lipstick (C$21 for 3.8 g):
Housed in a simple black tube which I wish was fancier and flashier to match the Precious Gems theme, the Sparkle Lipsticks are shimmer-packed lipsticks molded with a textured finish. "Sunstone" is a warm, opalescent nude shimmer. The shade doesn't have much of a base color but it's loaded with iridescent shimmers that shift between pale gold and pink. The formulation is nice and smooth with a sweet vanilla scent. The color has a fun, 90's vibe but I can't see myself pulling it off.

Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Sparkle Lipstick in "Sunstone" & "Ruby"
"Ruby" is a plummy berry scattered with iridescent shimmers that shift between pink and lavender. The formulation is slick and hydrating but the semi-sheer coverage is a bit patchy so several swipes are needed to build up and smooth out the color.

Mary Kay Fall 2021 | Nail Polish (C$18 for 9.2 g):
Two gorgeous shimmery nail polish shades are introduced as a part of the Precious Gems Collection. "Emerald" is a beautiful light teal blue consisting of silver and blue shimmers while "Rose Quartz" is an icy lavender pink packed with silver and pink shimmers. Both shades are filled to the brim with shimmer particles so the coverage is opaque and smooth. I used two coats for the swatches below.
