This New Beauty Product Is The Upgrade Your Makeup Routine Needs

By Deanna Pai

Every so often, a beauty innovation comes along that totally shakes up your routine: primer, lip tints that adjust to your pH for a uniquely customized shade, and color correctors all come to mind. But few can generate the level of enthusiasm that palettes consistently drum up. The magic of palettes is that they offer everything you need for a complete look in one neat, organized case. And the more recent versions even house eyeshadows, blushes, and highlighters all in beautiful tones, playful finishes, and high-performance formulas.

That's the case with the new Chromafusion Collection from iconic makeup brand Mary Kay, who we've teamed up with for this story. The Chromafusion Eye Shadow, Highlighter, Contour, and Blush formulas all feature Matrix Technology, which gives them intense color payoff and extra wear — meaning they'll stay vibrant through a workout, happy hour, holiday party, or whatever else the day throws at you. Plus, the innovative powders are designed to fit into the new, fully customizable Pro Palette for a makeup-artist-worthy upgrade. So all together, you can think of it as makeup by you, for you. Here, even more reasons why these products are changing the game.

The Mary Kay Chromafusion Collection is magnetic, so you won't have to break a nail trying to dig out old pans to create your perfect arrangement. Instead, you just pop the shades you want into the Pro Palette, pop them out when they're empty, and move them around however you like with ease.

When it comes to formula, the crease-free, fade-proof Mary Kay Chromafusion Eye Shadow is creamy, richly pigmented, and proven to stay put for 12 hours. It comes in both neutral and jewel-tone shades that work on a range of skin tones. Plus, you can choose from matte (perfect for the office) or shimmer (ideal for a night out) finishes.

But before you get too busy filling up your palette with eyeshadow, save some room for the Mary Kay Chromafusion Highlighter and Contour, which both come in two different shades for easy, blendable contouring. And don't forget a pop of color: The Mary Kay Chromafusion Blush comes in 10 shades, each of which pairs light-reflecting ingredients with rich pigments for a radiant, natural-looking glow.

With so many options in one palette, you'll be able to easily create a unique holiday look for every party on your schedule. The only hard part will be deciding which makeup combination to try next.
