I continue to ‘find’ products in my must-review-someday drawer that I wish I had noticed earlier. The latest, another lip product, comes from Mary Kay, and is a Glossy Lip Stain in the colour, Enchanted Mauve. It’s love, love, love.
I think I initially ignored it because I thought it was just another pink gloss. But hey hey, ho, ho, this is not just an ordinary gloss. Like Lancome’s L’Absolu Velours, this is also one of the hybrid lipgloss/lipstick/lipstain products that we’re seeing more and more of in the market.
This particular one ranks high in my books because a) it looks fabulous b) it feels super moisturizing and c) the colour is the perfect MLBB (my lips but better). And, since it’s from a brand like Mary Kay, it is quite affordable!
The Glossy Lip Stain has the texture of a lipstick but applies like a gloss. The texture is a bit thicker than a gloss but feels very velvety on the lips. Once on the lips, it settles in but doesn’t feel dry. It stays put too, lasting a meal and a coffee during the day for me. My only gripe with it is the brush; it’s like a typical lip gloss brush and I tend to prefer doe foot type applicators for this type of formula.
And the colour? It’s simply beautiful. It adds such warmth to my (usually tired looking) face.
