Mary Kay came out with this beautiful lipstick in gold packaging to celebrate their 50th anniversary. I was excited about this new lipstick for a few reasons. First, it is a berry shade and I am slightly obsessed with any type of berry lip products. And also the lipstick has this cool swirl pattern with two different colors.
Although, this has two shades in the tube, when mixed on the lips a medium berry color is produced. It is very beautiful and I think it would look nice on anyone. This is also a satin finish.
I am a big fan of Mary Kay lipsticks because they feel very comfortable on the lips. They give my lips a little bit of moisture and they are not drying at all. I think the lasting power of this lipstick is pretty average. I wouldn't say it is long wearing or anything. It last me about 3-4 hours, but that really depends on if I am eating, drinking, or talking a lot.
Here are some swatches of this lipstick:
-The Left shade is a swatch of the lipstick just swiped straight across my skin trying to keep the colors separate.
-The next is a swatch of the darker color on the lipstick. I had to angle the lipstick to make sure I was only using this color.
-The next from the top is a swatch of the lighter color. Again I angled the lipstick so that I was only getting this color.
-And the right shade is a swatch of the colors all mixed together. This is pretty much how it appears on the lips, but it's nice to know that you can angle it to get a slightly darker or lighter color.
Overall, I think this is a great lipstick! The color is nice and the formula is very comfortable. If you are interested you should definitely check it out soon because it is limited edition.
