Mary Kay Lipstick* | Review

Mary Kay LipstickRosewood Mary Kay LipstickI got this very kindly sent to me in October and I have been wearing it ever since. This is a Mary Kay lipstick in the shade Rosewood, which is a gorgeous, everyday nude.

I quite like the packaging. It’s slightly more bulky than your usual lipstick bullet, making it easy to feel around in your bag. The outside is sleek and black with a little silver detail slightly bulged out. The lid stays on extremely well so you won’t need to worry about it coming off in your bag.

The consistency of the lipstick itself is extremely lovely. It applies smoothly and evenly even if your lips are a little dry and the pigmentation is consistent and not patchy. It feels comfortable on the lips and gives off a semi-gloss finish once it dries down a little. But it still remains super comfortable on the lips and feel quite hydrating.

It isn’t transfer proof, which I expect as it is a glossy finish lipstick, but it does tint your lips a little so even after drinking or having some food the colour is still somewhat there, which personally I really enjoy! It also doesn’t make my teeth seem yellow, something I do get frustrated by so I’m glad this one doesn’t!  I didn’t find that it moved around or outside of the lines at all, so overall I am extremely happy with the lipstick. And the shade is definitely ideal for every day and seems to go with pretty much all of my makeup looks.

Have you tried anything from the Mary Kay range before? What did you think?



*Sometimes I get sent products to try out for free by companies. I’m extremely grateful for this however it does not alter my opinion of the product. All opinions are still 100% honest and my own.

    OMG I’m absolutely obsessed with this shade on you! It really compliments your skintone! I, too, really enjoy when a lipstick slightly tints the lips afterwards; even when it’s come off you can still rock a little bit of that colour! xx
