MARY KAY Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick

Celebrating Independence Day with Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick

In the spirit of Merdeka, let's talk about something vivid. Something that channels inner personality, vibrancy, bounce, and even a skip in your step just because, you know that today is going to be a good day. So with that at hand, let's have a play with Mary Kay's latest Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick; one that shows true color, intensity and long lasting plumpness all at one go.

The Packaging

Using an 'Advanced Cushion Matrix Technology' which has ultrafine silica gel microsphere tech, these lipsticks are Mary Kay's first of its kind that has full coverage, which retains color on the lips extremely well. These stunning hues are also extremely gentle on application with its lip-cushioning gel comfort, and together with a blurring effect, it makes the lips look more plumped with a softer shine.

Shades At Hand

A Closer Look

Now as you can see from the above, we have four of the colors in hand but the total of the collection holds a frame of eight tones, which consists of Bashful You, Rich Truffle, Mauve Moment, Powerful Pink. Always Apricot, Poppy Please, Crushed Berry and finally Midnight Red. Each of these also hold moisturizing ingredients that conditions the lips well, so for those who have chapped lips, you might take a strong liking to this particular range too.

4 Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick Swatches
Retail: RM55 each | 8 Shades Total

A soft natural pink

So the first one that we have on swatch is called the Mauve Moment, which is a sweet nude pink that is suitable for daily use. The formulation for this one is very smooth and the consistency glides on the lips seamlessly without going into any cracks or fine lines.

A playful purple red

This next one is called Crushed Berry and it is a good purple-red shade that holds quite a significant amount of pigment. It is suited best to those would like a little playful edge to their look. Application goes on well, but it would be best to put on this shade with a lip brush to get a full and plumped look.

The neutral brown

This following one in Rich Truffle is probably the most neutral of the four and has a nice soft coco brown to it. Suitable for both day and night wear, you can work it with both a smokey eye and a simple bright eyed look.

The classic red

The last one out of the shades we have in hand is called Midnight Red and this is the classic simple red. Application goes on strong and smooth for this one plus if you amp it up well, it creates a beautiful smolder to any look.

Overall Thoughts

Retailing at RM55 each from the 1st of August 2016 onwards, these collection of gel semi-matte lipsticks have certainly exceeded expectations and even on close up, the finish of all of them looks really good. Plus while the consistency of the quality is quite unique, the pigment of the colors are still effortlessly layed on to seal the lips with a slight gloss without leaving them to chap during the day.
