Mary Kay Smoke & Shimmer Eye Wands

Fall is just around the corner, which is a bummer for those of us who love summer, but it can’t be all that bad with brands coming out with their Fall makeup products. Mary Kay has just released their Fall collections as well and I can definitely say I’m warming up to Fall with the help of their gorgeous products.
The first item that I am going to be reviewing is the Mary Kay Smoke & Shimmer Eye Wands which came out in the Fairytales and Fantasies collection. There are three wands in total- Enchanted Mauve, Golden Illusion, and Amethyst Smoke- and each colour is perfect Fall. These cream eyeshadows are packed with gorgeous glitters to make your eyes sparkle and shine all day, or night long.
They have a very creamy formula and glide on effortlessly on the lid so there is no tugging at your eyes. I find that these work perfect as bases to powder eyeshadows, but if you have normal eyelids you could definitely wear these just on their own. These products do set if you let them sit for a bit so you won’t have to worry about any smudging or budging while wearing them. If you have oily eyelids such as myself I always suggest using an eye primer before applying any type of cream products. If you apply them and blend them with a finger or a brush you can really smoke them out which is perfect for the Fall time.
- Amethyst Smoke is a gorgeous plum colour. I find that this isn’t as pigmented as the other two shades so you will have to build it up to get the intensity you want.
- Golden Illusion is a nice, medium gold and looks great with those with blue eyes.
- Enchanted Mauve to me is more of a copper colour which is very indicative of Fall. It reminds me of all of the leaves changing colour- beautiful!

I recently used Enchanted Mauve as a base for a gorgeous deep red, copper colour in a sultry eye look I did for Fall and I will include a photo of that below. The Mary Kay Smoke & Shimmer wands retail for $14, have 1.38g of product and can be purchased through a MK representative or online at MaryKay.ca! These wands are definitely worth trying out if you are trying to ease your way into Fall with different coloured eye looks. They are limited edition so they are only available for a limited time.
