I shared the nail polishes from the latest Mary Kay collection already, but are you ready for the rest of the items? Today I have all the makeup, except the lipstick. Those are getting their own post later, since there’s so many of them.

Mary Kay fall 2016 collection products

Hidden in these fun and stylish boxes are the products from the Mary Kay Runway Bold collection. The collection features the nail polishes, a duel pot of gel eyeliner called Dramatic Gold, and an eye color palette called Rock the Runway. Also shown are two Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks, which are not part of the collection, but arrived at the same time, and fit in nicely.

The theme for this collection is definitely bold, with metallic golds and blue sharing the spotlight.

Let’s start with the boldest item: the eye color palette in Rock the Runway. This is housed in a square black plastic container with a clear lid. It has 5 shadows (gold, bronze, silver, blue, blacked blue glitter), all of which are bold. The pigmentation on these shadows is really good, they barely need primer. All of these shadows are intense, so this isn’t a stand alone palette, but can be used to make some very bold looks.

The gel eyeliner in Dramatic Gold is a duel pot containing both a gold and a bronze liner. These are really soft. They are well pigmented, but don’t seem to dry down very much, so are prone to smearing.

The Glowing Finish Illuminating Sticks fit in well with the current highlighting trends. These are almost metallic looking when first applied. They do blend out really easily though, almost too much. When I tried them, I had to keep adding more as they seemed to blend right away with barely a touch. My skin doesn’t work well with cream products though, so that might have had something to do with it.
