Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick ($19, online) 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 very creamy. The lipsticks are supposed to boost the production of collagen for the appearance of firm and full lips.

Firecracker is bright orange-tinged red. It goes on fully pigmented and very slippery, so it’s the kind of lipstick that needs a lip liner for a perfect lip look.

Sizzling Red is blue-based red. It is fully pigmented and also too creamy/slippery like Firecracker to be worn without lip liner.

Rosette is sheer rose mauve. It applies semi-sheerly and evenly in one pass and gives a very natural lip look.

Mystic Plum is plum. It applies semi-sheerly. It’s one of the better performing lipsticks in the batch.

Spice ‘n’ Nice is brick red. This one caused me the most issues. It is a dark colour that applies sheerly and unevenly. I tried hard to apply it evenly but failed.

Unfortunately, I found most of the lipsticks in this batch too creamy and slippery. This becomes especially problematic for the bold, opaque shades. The best performing one in this round is Rosette. Overall, I’d recommend that you look at the ones I previously swatched and pass on these.
