@MaryKay Outstanding new mascaras just in time for the holidays!

You know the name Mary Kay is synonymous with quality makeup products. Now there are some great new mascara products from Mary Kay, just in time to make you dazzle for the holidays!

I received some samples of the new mascara products to try, and right away I had a few faves.

The Lash Primer may be my favorite product of the new bunch. Why? Because it has so many benefits. Not only does it condition your eyelashes with Mary Kay Panthenol-Pro Complex, but it also strengthens lashes too. It's a clear formula that goes on easily, lifting lashes to help them stay curlier longer, and intensifying lash volume to create longer-looking lashes.

I remember trying a clear mascara several years ago, and while I wasn't exactly disappointed in the results, it didn't wow me either. So I never tried it again. But you can wear the Mary Kay Lash Primer alone or as a base coat for your mascara. I love that!! Some days I don't really want that dramatic black-lashed look, you know? I just want some separation and length, and know that I'm doing something good for my lashes. That's Lash Primer. When I used it as a base coat for mascara, I loved it even more. Sometimes you have to apply several coats of mascara to get the coverage and separation and length you want, but the primer sets the stage for that and ONE COAT of mascara was all it took to achieve the look I wanted. Perfect!

And the new mascara I loved? LASH LOVE, of course!

It does an outstanding job of defining, separating, and lengthening lashes, especially when used in conjunction with the Lash Primer. I've tried so many mascaras over the years, and my biggest complaint is that I have to apply so many coats to achieve my desired results. Not so with Lash Love. It has such a smooth application, dries fast, and does not clump. At. All. Yay! And not flaky. No clumps, no flakes. Looks natural too. If I could get permanent color on my eyelashes, I'd want them to look like this!

The applicator brush separates lashes so effortlessly, it feels almost automatic. This mascara is lightweight, too. You don't get that heavy gunky feeling on your lashes. You can hardly even tell you're wearing mascara at all! There's no heavy chemical smell, either. And it comes in a beautiful case, perfectly portable. Toss one in your handbag, gym bag, etc. to always be prepared.

Mary Kay Lash Love is as good as it gets. And at $15.00 per tube, easily affordable. There are certainly cheaper brands, but the quality is just not the same. I've been using Mary Kay lipstick for years. It's the only lipstick I'll buy and actually use. Once I find a particular makeup brand or product I really like, I stick with it. I think I'm going to be adding Lash Primer and Lash Love to my list of "must haves". Mary Kay continues to impress!
