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.
