Buttery Lips: Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick Reviews, Photos, Swatches (Part 1)

It feels like it’s been a while since I featured a lipstick. When Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipsticks ($19, online) arrived at my doorstep before Christmas, I literally gasped at their beauty. It took me a while to figure it out, but the click-button top packaging of the lipsticks is pretty cool. And you know what else? The shiny silver packaging repels most fingerprints. It’s like a magical plastic case made of dreams!

Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick is described as “intensely moisturizing and exquisitely smoothing… like a colour-infused fountain of youth for your lips.” These lipsticks feel like the lipstick-balm hybrids we’ve seen in the past year. They have a beautiful sheen and are incredibly creamy. The lipsticks are supposed to boost the production of collagen for the appearance of firm and full lips.

Pink Chérie is bubblegum pink. It is fully opaque. This is my favourite of the group.

Wild about Pink is bright reddish pink. Like Pink Chérie, it is fully opaque.

Natural Beauté is rosy brown. It goes on sheerly.

Sienne Brûlée is a caramel brown. It goes on sheerly. On my lips, the colour was very patchy as well.

Despite the varying degrees of opacity in the lipsticks, they were very creamy and moisturizing as promised. These lipsticks definitely provide the lips a full, juicy appearance, but I found that they didn’t help to fill in my lip lines that much. I think lip butter fans will love this new formula from Mary Kay. Stay tuned for Part 2 to see the rest of the shades!

What is your favourite lipstick-lipbalm hybrid? Are you a fan of this formula? I prefer a fully opaque, matte to low sheen lipstick, but it’s always nice to have options. :)

    Wild about Pink looks gorgeous! Haven’t tried this brand before

      I agree, Wild about Pink is a fun shade! Mary Kay doesn’t get a lot of press on the blogosphere and I’m really surprised that they don’t get more. Their products have really impressed me lately.

    What?! They REPEL fingerprints? omg can all other brands please start working this magic too, I am so tired of having to pull my sleeves down when I’m photography shiny things! I love this type of formula, although like you, I’m definitely more a fan of the ones that lean fully opaque. Wild About Pink is probably my favorite of the bunch, but they all look gorgeous on you.

    YES I loooove a good balmy lipstick–preferably one that is sheer/semi-sheer. These look awesome! I especially love Color Me Coral and Natural Beauté!!

    I think I’ve prob said it before, but I would DIE to have full lips like you. I seriously think you could wear any lip color and it would look phenomenal. These shades are super pretty, can’t decide which I like best on you!! I’ve tried a few MK products lately, and am actually really impressed by how chid and not-your-mothers-makeup they are!!

    I just got “Natural Beaute” in the mail and I love it. I’m very pale and this is the perfect polished yet natural color for me..and the texture is to die for! I’ll definitely repurchase this one and I think I’d like to try the coral color too!!
