Mary Kay eyeshadows have come quite a long way since I first remember wearing a horrendous wash of blue all over my lid as my mother hustled me on stage at a dance recital. I don't know if it was the trauma associated with the shadows or not, but since then I've never really given Mary Kay shadow another opportunity to become a mainstay in my makeup collection. Not until now, that is.
I was recently given the opportunity to try Copper Glow and Coal to recreate the look Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum was wearing at the CMAs and was pleasantly surprised when I ran my finger through each of them to find that they are actually really smooth and pigmented! Copper Glow is a very warm, almost orange copper with matching shimmer and Coal is a basic matte black (very). Copper Glow was easier to work with than Coal - in the swatch below, it took a two swipes to get the pigmentation I did with Coal while Copper Glow was achieved in one. But, I've come to find that's to be expected when talking about matte shades across many brands. So, as far as mattes go, it's not bad. Once on, both shadows last solid 10 hours when worn over a primer.
At $6.50 for .05 oz., they are more expensive than other free standing eye shadows. But, if you find a shade you must have, it's not a bad value and they are magnetized so they will sit neatly in either a Mary Kay compact or a Z palette. You can purchase your from your Mary Kay rep, or their website!
