I’ve been exploring more beauty brands these last few months and recently had a chance to try out the Mary Kay Chromafusion Collection. As a serious makeup junkie I love large palettes with lots of colors but I find buying them can be tricky. There is usually at least one color that I’m not 100% in love with so being able to create and customize my own palette with colors I know I’ll use is like a dream come true. The Mary Kay Chromafusion Collection offers generously sized magnetic compacts with individual makeup pans that you can pick and choose to create your own custom beauty wardrobe.
The Mary Kay team sent over their entire collection of color options for me to try out. There are different finishes that range from mattes to shimmers. I think the formula is very good – they offer natural medium but buildable coverage. Color range is also pretty nice with colors with great everyday neutrals alongside some bolder options for a smokey eye or more trendy look. Cheek products have a nice colors that will work for a wide range of skin tones. Options include:
- Chromafusion Eye Shadows ($8 each)
- Chromafusion Blush ($14 each)
- Chromafusion Highlighters ($14 each)
- Chromafusion Contour ($14 each)
- Pro Palette ($25 each)
Formula for both eye and cheek products are smooth and apply well on the skin. There is enough pigment to show up with one swipe and colors blend easily. Lasting power for both the eye shadows and cheek products were excellent. On my normal skin type I found color stayed put all day long from early morning until late evening without budging or fading.
I put together a few looks while testing these. One of my favorites is worn below. I used my brushes from my own collection alongside other staples for the base, mascara, etc. Chromafusion products worn:
- Highlight – Mary Kay Chromafusion Highlighter in Glazed
- Blush – Mary Kay Chromafusion Blushes Rouge Rose + Wineberry mixed
- Eyeliner – Mary Kay Chromafusion Eyeshadow in Merlot applied damp (matte)
- Eyeshadows – Mary Kay Chromafusion Eyeshadows in Candlelight, Burnished Bronze, Golden Mauve and Frozen Iris blended and layered
Swatches below with a couple other of my favorites from the colors I tested.
Overall some nice powders that have excellent performance, great color payoff for a natural look and impressive lasting power! I really love when you can customize palettes to pick the colors I know I’ll use. Even better that I can switch things out for different occasions or seasons!
