In the midst of January’s gloomy and cool weather, Mary Kay offered a short respite from the grey with their launch party for their Spring collection, Into the Garden.
The event took the form of a spring bridal shower, with fresh blooms all around and delicious afternoon snacks and drinks to get the vibe just right. The new collection is definitely bridal-friendly, so the setting was more than appropriate!
After learning more about the launches, this season of MK products is as far removed from what most people’s perception of Mary Kay is as far as I can tell. They’re really upping their game in an increasingly competitive and fierce industry, so I’ve got to hand it to them for this season. There’s a strong rose quartz & serenity vibe in the colour palette, along with other complementary pastels, pops of coral and smoky greys (timeless spring shades).
The collection was inspired by fashion designer Patricia Bonaldi, who simply oozes femininity with intricate floral designs and beautiful silhouettes. Providing their expertise to the collection was Mary Kay Global Makeup Artist Sebastian Correa, ultimately bringing the complete collection to fruition.
So, what’s included? Read on…
Into the Garden Lip & Eye Color Compact
This palette offers a quad of shadows and trio of lip shades, providing lots of versatility. Keep it simple & neutral or add a pop of violet to your eye look, and pair with a nude, pink or coral lip. $45 CAD.
Into the Garden Beauty Blotters
A classic product in the Mary Kay family (and must-have for your handbag, especially as it starts to warm up) repackaged with a fresh, floral look. $8.50 CAD.
Into the Garden Soap Set
Pictured at the start of this post, this trio of scented bar soaps in the floral packaging would make a great gift at a bridal or baby shower, or complement a powder/guest room in any home. They’re actually a first for Mary Kay and at $20 CAD, a great price point.
Into The Garden Nail Lacquer
If you were looking for some Pantone inspired nail shades for Spring, look no further! This trio of polishes comes in Coral Blossom, Pink Magnolia, and Sweet Lilac. Any of these would make a perfect accent nail on a bride’s wedding day! $10 CAD each.

Take your floral nail game to the next level with these appliqués – they’re easy to apply, a fun way to add a simple touch to your regular mani and only $10 CAD per package!
There is also a pedicure set (which I’ll save for another day), but all of these products are available now through your Mary Kay consultant, or head over to www.marykay.ca to figure out how to get your hands on some of these babies!
