Thinning brows and lashes are a common occurrence during midlife let me tell you.  Given the opportunity to test and review these Mary Kay products, I thought, “Oh yeah, this product is definitely for me!” I once had fabulous lashes, and often received compliments on their length and fullness. The thinning lashes don’t bother me nearly as much as the sparse eyebrows do. You see, thin eyebrows were fashionable when I was young, and boy do I regret that now. The outermost ends of my brows are nearly bare and I loathe “drawn on” eyebrows. Mary Kay may have saved me from total eyebrow despair!

The lustrous Mary Kay Black Box arrived with five products inside engulfed in pink shimmering paper and a big pink bow, very pretty. The contents included two Lash Love black mascaras with one being waterproof, a Lash Primer, an Ultimate Mascara, and a tube of Lash and Brow Serum.

All of the products are ophthalmologist tested, suitable for sensitive eyes and contact wearers. Being a fair and sensitive skin person, I had no adverse reaction to Mary Kay products and certainly DO appreciated that feature.

Mary Kay® Lash Love® Mascara

Mary Kay mascara is available in black and black/brown, and are also lash building. Each of Mary Kay’s formulas works to accomplish a specific lash goal. All the mascara varieties are flake, clump, and smudge resistant. They really do keep you covered and coated for everything from a glamorous night on the town to an intense workout. The suggested retail price is $15.00.

The unique, flexible, sculpted brush separates and coats even hard-to-reach lashes, and the Mary Kay® Panthenol-Pro Complex™ and vitamin E help moisturize, strengthen and condition lashes and help defend against breakage.”

Mary Kay®Lash & Brow Building Serum™

My biggest interest (and need) is obviously the Mary Kay Lash and Brow building Serum. It helps reduce that midlife appearance by building full, thicker lashes and brows. For the past seven days, I’ve applied the serum to my brows per the instructions. The serum goes on wet and smooth. In a few minutes, it seems the serum has soaked in, leaving the brow area feeling engulfed in smoothness.

“All it takes is just seconds a night – and in just 30 days you’ll see the results that women everywhere are already talking about. This gentle, fast-drying serum is powered by our Lash Response™ Complex, an essential nutrient boost of amino acids, a peptide and red clover extract that is shown to provide support to the dermal matrix* and nourishment to the hair follicle that “anchors” each hair in place. The appearance of thin, sparse lashes and brows is improved and lashes seem stronger.”

While I have not passed the 30-day result claim yet, I can honestly say the serum gives my brow a fluffier, fuller appearance. The retail price is $38.00.  Provided my brow improvement does continue to increase over the 30 day testing, I’ll DEFINITELY be purchasing this product.
