Today I'd like to share with you this gorgeous makeup palette from Mary Kay called Into the Garden Colour Compact.

The compact has been made in collaboration with Patricia Bonaldi, who is a Brazilian born fashion designer, who with the palette has tried to capture fashion's current fascination with florals.

Between its signature packaging and day-to-night colour palette, Into the Garden™ approaches beauty from a runway-ready point of view. And the limited-time availability only makes it more attractive. 

The all-in-one compact has the most gorgeous pink floral design on the outside, and inside it reveals absolutely everything you need for a fresh spring and summer makeup look. Including;

  • 4 eye shadows, in violet, taupe, pink and plum
  • Three lip glosses in nude, pink and coral
  • Double ended brush with sponge applicator in one end for the eye shadows, and brush applicator in the other end for the lipglosses

The eye shadows all apply with a subtle, but beautiful sheen, and the shades are all very pigmented so you can really build up the intensity, and even more so if you apply them with a damp applicator. I am personally probably a little to conservative for the violet shade, but that said, if applied very lightly, it is lovely and refreshing. The three remaining shades are all lovely, and shades I'd reach for on a daily basis, and the dark plum shade is also so dark that it borderlines a dark chocolate brown. They also have a good wear, and especially if you use a primer first, they will stay put all day without fading or settling into fine lines.

Then three's the lipglosses, and they are all very lovely, though I personally prefer the pink shade, which is also the brightest shade. The other two shades are very light, but do give a subtle tint on the lips with a lovely sheen, all while being non sticky. Personally I have also successful used the lipglosses as a blush, by dabbing a tiny amount onto the apples of my cheeks.

All in all this is a lovely compact, and the shades are a refreshing change from the nude and brownish shades that I usually select.
