Mary Kay City Modern Collection


Mary Kay’s Limited Edition City Modern Collection aims to express an elegant and sophisticated mood at affordable price points. The collection includes Lipsticks, Eye Shadow Palettes and Nail Lacquer. I received two of the three lipstick shades and three of the four nail lacquer colours. I’ll start with the lipsticks; they are moisturising lip creams with a satin finish and glide over the lips very smoothly. They are not the most pigment packed lipsticks ever, but can be worn as a wash of colour or built up for full colour impact. I have the shades Naturally Chic, a gorgeous muted nude shade with brown/mauve undertones, and Berry Stylish, a gorgeous deep plum shade that actually packs a bit more punch in the pigment department. These lipsticks last well on your lips, but will transfer during eating and drinking, I love both these shades, because I love a good nude, but when I want to switch it up, deep berry shades are usually what I opt for.

Next up are the nail polishes; these are gorgeous satin finish nail colours that apply smoothly and opaquely, even with one very generous coat. They lasted the usual three to four days before I started getting tip wear, this is typically for me with nail polish, but I am particularly heavy on my hands. I love all three shades that I have; Gallery Gray is a gorgeous muted grey beige shade that is still very wearable on darker skin tones. Berry Stylish is a matching deep plum shade with the aforementioned lipstick with the same shade name, and Garden Terrace is a beautiful emerald green with specks of gold running through it.

Mary Kay City Modern Collection Lipsticks are priced at £12.00 each and the Nail Polishes are £9.00 each.
