Mary Kay True Dimensional Lipsticks Review & Swatches

There’s more new lipsticks in LipstickRules town. Imagine that. This time they are from Mary Kay, and they are called True Dimensional*.

These lipsticks fall into the lipstick hybrid category that I wrote about the other day when I reviewed Maybelline Color Whispers. I honestly love the direction the makeup industry is going with this type of formulation. Love, love, love.

The True Dimensional lipsticks ($19 each) are packaged in sleek silver tubes with cool click-tops. They are supposed to boost collagen production, helping to make lips look firm and full. The line has a wide range of colours, from sheer pink to dark plum.

On the lips, they are creamy and smooth. I’m not sure whether they make my lips look fuller but I can say I like the way my lips look when I wear some of these colours.  The lighter shades such as Color Me Coral and Pink Chere are lovely and perfect for everyday wear. I found the darker colours like Sizzling Red and Firecracker really pretty and highly pigmented. The darker colours somehow feel a bit more slippery than the lighter, so I would recommend wearing liner with those.

Swatches are below.

My favourites from the collection are Wild about Pink, Firecracker and Mystic Plum.

Have you tried anything from Mary Kay recently?

    These look great! As soon as I saw your post, I was thinking that Pink Chere and Wild About Pink were speaking to me 😉 I guess this is another brand I’m going to have to try!

    Hi, i dont know whether firecracker or sizzling red match my skin tone. I have a fair skin complexion but a bit pale. However i dont prefer natural look as i want to look outstanding. I learnt that you have a few samples and would like to know whether i can try these two colours.just to make sure i wouldnt look like a clown wearing the wrong colour or feel uncomfortable with it
