Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick Review11:30:00 AM
Here's another lipstick that will surely pique your interest. Last August 2014, Mary Kay Philippines launched new shades to its True Dimensions Lipstick range. The four new gorgeous shades are: Citrus Flirt, Coral Bliss, Exotic Mango, and Sassy Fuchsia.
I was lucky enough to try the shades Citrus Flirt and Sassy Fuchsia when the Mary Kay team sent them to me.
The Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipsticks are infused with advance age-defying skin care ingredients that helps lips look plumper, feel firmer and smooths fine lines while drenching them in moisture. It comes in 11 rich stay-true lip colors, including the 4 new shades I mentioned above.
In addition, True Dimensions Lipstick contains Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Jojoba, Mango Butter which are known for their moisturizing benefits.
It has been over a month since I started using these lipsticks. So far, these lippies have been good to my lips. It's very moisturizing and hydrates my lips well for a good number of hours. It is has some kind of floral scent to it which can be overwhelming for some, but fragrance does dissipate a couple of minutes after application.
It is not streaky but rather applies really smoothly on my lips while delivering excellent color payoff. These lipsticks feels very light on my lips similar to lip balms with thinner texture. It leaves a slightly glossy finish but if you don't like that, no need to worry since it gets absorbed on my lips after a few minutes of wearing. Then I noticed that my lips do get a little plump and look healthier since the fine lines on my lips tend to look smoother.
Though these aren't matte and opaque, it has a decent wear time at 4 - 5 hours on me. The shade Sassy Fuchsia stays on my lips for about 4 hours before it starts to fade while leaving a nice stain on my lips. The shade Citrus Flirt stays on my lips for about 3 - 4 hours only and does not leave a stain like the latter did.
Another thing that I really love about this line is it's very creative yet functional packaging. The twists all the way in, so I won't have to worry about nicking the top off my lipstick when I'm about to close it.
Also, this isn't your typical tube of lipstick. The top of the part of cap is made of transparent, thick plastic that allows me to see the color inside, then I have to push down the top cap of the lipstick for the tube to come out at the bottom.
With its stylish packaging, this innovative product has garnered Mary Kay the prestigious Art of Packaging Award from the renowned Pratt Institute in New York for excellence in packaging creativity, aesthetics, sustainability and functionality.
What I like about it...
* leaves my lips well hydrated

* stays a good 4 hours on my lips
* I noticed that my lips appear voluptuous

What I don't like...

My rating: 4 / 5
So the question is, would I recommend this? Yes, definitely especially to those who have dry and cracked lips. If you prefer matte and opaque lipsticks, then this is not for you.
Until next time.
