New for summer 2014, Mary Kay has added 10 new shades to their True Dimensions Lipsticks line, ranging from flattering nudes to bold reds and everything in between. These lipsticks are formulated with a nourishing blend of ingredients such as sunflower seed oil, jojoba and mango butter to provide moisture and comfort while the antioxidant vitamin E help protect lips from free radicals and environmental damage.
Intensely moisturizing. Exquisitely smoothing. It’s like a color-infused fountain of youth for your lips.
- Instantly drenches lips in moisture and locks it in for endless comfort.
- Infused with advanced skin care ingredients, the formula smooths the appearance of fine lines and helps lips look fuller.
- Just a push of the clear, click-button top releases pure, radiant color from its ultrastylish case.
Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick comes packaged in a sleek metalized, smoky platinum-colored case featuring a push-button design. Although I like the shiny silver packaging, I have to say the fancy opening mechanism was a bit confusing for me to figure out at first. To open the lipstick, you need to push the clear button on the top, which releases the lipstick from its sleeve.
Now let’s get to the lipsticks itself. It was love at first swipe! Creamy, buttery, and oh so pigmented with a beautiful sheen. The formula is actually quite similar to one of my all-time favorite lip butters. It has a rich, creamy-smooth texture with a semi-gloss finish that looks and feels great on lips. My lips feel moisturized the entire time I’m wearing it, without the need for a separate lip balm or gloss. As for the longevity, it holds up really well and I can easily get 3-4 hours of wear time (with minimal drinking/eating) before a touch-up is needed.
The shades I tried are –
First Blush: A light, warm coral pink
Tuscan Rose: A medium-toned dusty pink
Coral Bliss : An easy-to-wear, soft coral with a hint of pink……just perfect for summer! This is my favorite of the three. It leaves a nice pinkish stain to the lips as it wears off.
Here are the swatches :
