Lipcote Rating: 4/5

Mary Kay is one of the forerunners in beauty sales in the US.  Her company is now well established but was initially popularised and maintained through similar channels of promotion as Avon Cosmetics.

All True Dimensions lipsticks attest to Mary Kay’s fame in the industry, and come in a high shine, silver-chrome casing which is instantly eye catching due to its slinky mirror effect. This makes Mary Kay lipsticks hard to lose in your handbag.  The design is so slick that you would expect the price point to be far higher than it actually is.

Sizzling Red has a rich, blue undertone. If you want your pearly whites to look like those of a hollywood starlet, choose Sizzling Red. Blue tones make teeth look brighter and whiter.

The complete range of all eleven True Dimensions lipsticks have a sheer finish, with an impressive pigment pay off even from one single swipe.  An aroma of roses reminds you that softening rose water has been added to this formula to soothe chapped and sensitive lips, not to mention the rose scent which takes your mind back to a summer’s day in the flower garden.  This range defies the stereotype that sheer lipsticks won’t last.  Their formula’s longevity, teamed with Lipcote’s sealant varnish to top it off, will certainly not be challenged by a mere coffee mug or wine glass!
