Now you can customize all your favorite Mary Kay cosmetics into one eco-chic refillable compact. It has one large square area that holds 1-6 products, one well for lipstick or gloss, one well for applicators and a mirror for on-the-go application. Retail price is $18.
The new sleek black Mary Kay Compact features 18 million possible color combinations and also gives women the opportunity to go green with their beauty routine.

If you have an old platinum and pink Mary Kay compact for recycling, return it to your Mary Kay consultant. For every compact returned, Mary Kay will plant a tree in the Bitterroot National Forest in Montana and Idaho through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation and under the direction of the U.S. Forest Service with a goal of planting an entire forest.
