Lip and Eye from Mary Kay

Mary Kay have some exciting new colour products out – I’ve been lucky enough to road test them! Here’s what I thought…

 

Cream Eye Colors

I am a huge fan of Maybelline’s Color Tattoo range so I was excited to see that Mary Kay have released some too. There are 4 colours out:

Meadow Grass – grassy green

Coastal Blue – deep aqua

Glacier Gray – pink-tinged medium grey

Violet Storm – greyish purple

All 4 shades contain fine shimmer and go on the skin with a solid shimmery effect. They glide on very smoothly, unlike the sticky Maybelline Color Tattoos, and they dry very quickly and don’t crease as much. On the flip side, this means that they’re not quite as good as an eyeshadow base. I prefer wearing these alone, and the Color Tattoos as a base. The Mary Kay shadows are very wearable colours that can be layered to give a bolder colour, but with just one layer they’re a really subtle way of adding colour to your eyes. My favourites for work wear are Glacier Grey and Meadow Grass, but the other two aren’t far behind!

 

True Dimensions Lipstick

There are 4 new shades of True Dimensions lipsticks out. These are very moisturising lipsticks with sheer but buildable glossy colour, in the same style as Revlon’s Lip Butters, but with better lasting power. The 4 new shades are:
