Mary Kay City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes

My mailbox has been flooding with Fall releases lately, it's hard to believe that Summer is coming to an end soon! Today I have the two new City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes* from Mary Kay to share with you. I've been a huge fan of this shadow formula from previous collections, and luckily these two newbies are no exception!

Mary Kay City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes

"The NEW limited-edition Mary Kay Eye Color Palette takes its design cue from the sleek, soaring architectural lines of magnificent modern city skyscrapers. Each palette features this season’s must-have metallic and matte neutrals. Get intense colour payoff in one sweep for a smudge-proof finish that’s effortlessly chic. The eye colour palette is part of the limited-edition† Mary Kay City Modern Collection – fall’s must-have makeup that expresses the elegant and sophisticated mood of the season." - Mary Kay

Mary Kay City Modern Collection Eye Color Palettes

These palettes are $26 CAD each, and they are sold without packaging. This would be perfect to pop into a Z Palette, but Mary Kay also sells empty compacts for $20 each. If you were to buy an empty compact for each palette, it would make them pretty pricey at $46 each.

Mary Kay City Sophisticate Eye Color Palette Swatches

City Sophisticate is my favourite of the two palettes. This palette includes a beautiful shimmery taupe, a cool toned pink, a glittery gold, and a beautiful light berry/plum with a satin finish. These four shadows work wonderfully together, and you can easily use this palette for a day or night look.

Mary Kay Metro Modern Eye Color Palette Swatches

Metro Modern is more of a smokey eye/evening look palette. The dark metallic brown is absolutely a dream to work with - the pigmentation is superb! The shimmering silver shadow is somewhat sheer, but still very creamy. The deep shimmery navy works perfectly to deepen up the crease. And finally we have the matte grey with brown undertones. This shadow applies a bit patchy, and is the only let down from either palette. 

Mary Kay's City Modern Collection is available now online or through your local Mary Kay Consultant. Will you be ordering either of these new palettes?
