Tried Tuesday: Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick

tt-marykay-thLast Thursday I was introduced to a new (to me) brand of makeup, skincare and fragrance, that’s big in the States, and worldwide really. Yet, it’s always been a name that hasn’t stuck in my head, that you may see it briefly mentioned in a magazine and move on to the next thing. Yet I’m glad I was introduced to it, as there are some really interesting bits. The brand is Mary Kay, and today I’m trying one of the products that I was given, a True Dimensions Lipstick in the shade Color Me Coral.


The True Dimensions  lipstick comes in a range of 16 different shades, containing all the usual gamut of nudes, reds, berries and so forth. there are two coral shades, this one, which is a pink coral, and an orange coral called coral bliss. Some of the catalog printed swatches like of mystic plum and sassy fuchsia do actually look really gorgeous, but lets see how I get on with this one first.


The tube is really solid, and isn’t your standard half and half opening. To open this one you have to push down on the centre clear section at the top, to expose the bottom, and then pull the tube out. Unfortunately it didn’t come  with instructions to do this, so it did take me a minute to figure it out. One benefit of it though, is that it will not accidentally come apart in your bag, leading to coral coloured blotches everywhere.


The product itself is soft and creamy, so soft and creamy, that when I was running a brush over it before applying it earlier, I broke a small chunk off the back of it. It happens though, so I’ll get over it.


And of course it wouldn’t be a Tried Tuesday without trying the product in it’s natural environment – on the lips, so here it is. This is after two coats, using a No. 7 lip brush. The first one was just a little sheer, but it is easily buildable into what I think is a great colour for summer days or the office.

Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick is £14, and is available from marykay.co.uk or one of their independent beauty consultants.

What do you think of this colour? Have you tried anything else from the Mary Kay Range? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
