Mary Kay Semi-Matte Lipstick in Pink Moonstone

The Mary Kay Semi-Matte Lipsticks are another part of their Limited Edition Midnight Jewels Collection. Check out my previous reviews on the Eye Color Palettes and Nail Lacquers!

Mary Kay Semi-Matte Lipstick in Pink Moonstone
Price: $16.00
Available through Mary Kay Beauty Consultants and at marykay.com


The sleek packaging on this product is reminiscent of the past ltd Mary Kay Creamy Lip Colors and Lip Suedes. The tube is thinner than the average lipstick tube, and the product twists up.


Pink Moonstone is a pinky-nude color, and I think it would work really well on various skin tones. I like to dot this on my lips then blend out with my finger for a sheer nude look when I'm rockin' dramatic eyes!

Here's a swatch:


The wear time on this is pretty average for a lipstick. It wears about 4+ hours depending on how much I eat and drink. I also don't have any issues with this feathering outside my lip line, or accentuating the lines in my lips.

This lipstick applies very creamy on the lips, but there's no shine. I love that this is matte without being very drying, but I have to note that this isn't moisturizing to me either. I like to apply a lip balm before applying to ensure my lips are hydrated.

Overall, I really like this shade and formulation! I kind of wish it was part of their permanent line because it's a really great nude color for me. I've struggled in the past with finding that perfect nude shade for me, but this is perfect!
