Mary Kay's fall collection is here! It features two limited edition matte lipsticks and two limited edition quad palettes. I have been playing around with for a little while so I thought I'd share with you what I think of them.
Mary Kay has launched two limited edition palettes for fall. They both feature new and permanent shades from their new Chromafusion line of shadows. They come in their four shadow pan palette, that is magnetic and let's change up were and even what you keep in them.
Mary Kay Chromafusion Radiant Confidence Petite Palette Bundle ($53)
With two mattes and two shimmers, this palette has a good mix of shades for only having four in it. With light shades, a mild peach gold and a popping blue and warm brown it can create a fun look that I think a lot of people will like for fall.
Radiant Confidence
Toffee – A light terracotta matte - I love this shade lid or under my brows. It darker than most shades I would choose for under my brows, but it works out really well and would suit so many skin tones since it is a bit darker.
Golden Peach – A medium golden peach shimmer - This is a nice peachy shimmer with gold in it that goes on lighter than in the pan but can be built up to look darker or used wet for a more bold look.
Radiant Blue – A bright blue shimmer - This blue is bold and bright and oh so shimmery. It comes off bluer when applied. Since I have blue eyes I don't reach for blues often but love this as a liner
Mahogany (permanent shade) – A warm brown matte - This is a great medium darkness warm brown, it works really well for a lot of things, crease, liner and even my brows.

Mary Kay Chromafusion Feel Fierce Petite Palette Bundle ($53)
This one is is a more traditional fall palette that once again has two mattes and two shimmers. I am in love with the super pretty pomegranate and popping Hummingbird as a liner. This one really speaks to me because it is exactly the type of palette I would pick up for fall.
Feel Fierce
Rose Gold  (permanent shade)– A light, rose gold shimmer - this is a light rose gold shade with
Pomegranate – A deep red/pink matte - there isn't much more to say, but it really looks like the shade of the outside of a pomegranate.
Hummingbird – A rich green with purple shimmer - It is hard to describe this one, but it is blue brown shimmer that pops when applied wet. I really enjoy using it as a liner wet.
Onyx  (permanent shade)– A true black matte - This one is a basic matte black, it has a slight blue undertone when swatched but reads black on the eyes. It is quite pigmented and blends out easily. It is by far one of the better matte blacks I've dealt with recently.
Mary Kay's fall collection features two matte lipsticks. I mean would it really be fall without matte lipsticks?  Mary Kay did add some great nude matte lipsticks this past spring to their collection, and I did fall in love with them, so I will these are also pretty awesome and stand up with the same quality.
Matte Lipstick in Tenacious Taupe $20.00
Tenacious Taupe is a great taupe shade that a nice nude taupe shade. Despite me not loving lots of taupe nudes, I really like this one, it is matte but smooth and looks really nice without any patchiness.

Matte Lipstick in Spice Of Life $20.00
Spice of Life is the perfect name for this shade, it is a spicy brick red that leans more blue-toned. It reminds me of the shades I used to wear in the mid-90s but more modern and definitely fall. It goes nicely with the Pomegranate eyeshadow, it is a similar type of shade.

The formula for both is smooth and creamy and almost gel-like, I love how it feels on my lips. When I compare it to other matte formulas I found it much more actual matte while still feeling smooth on the lips.

I created a look using the Feel Fierce palette and Spice of life lipstick.
I used Rose Gold lightly under my brow and in the inner corner of my eyes. I blended that into Pomegranate in the middle of my lids and then my outer third of the lid I used Hummingbird. I then used Onyx as a liner. My lower lid I lined and smoked out Hummingbird. This has been my favourite look to make with it. I also love to just ut Rose Gold on my lid and Hummingbird as a liner for a quick look.
Overall I love this little fall collection. It isn't overwhelming, it is just right. I love the matte lipstick formula, it is soft and non-drying, while the palettes have great mixtures of shades and are soft and blend out extremely nicely.
