The new Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipsticks are what your kiss has been missing. I have to admit, as much as I love the look of a completely matte lip, sometimes I just need a little moisture (especially since the long, cold, dry winter months are upon us). These new lippies utilize gel microsphere technology to not only provide true colour that lasts for hours, it also helps to keep lips looking and feeling hydrated. These gel, semi-matte lipsticks are formulated with sunflower oil and jojoba extract to help condition the lips while providing full-coverage with a totally opaque finish.
Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick features an incredibly lightweight gel-like texture that glides across the lips with ease, never pulling or tugging on the skin. It’s soft and smooth consistency contains silica microsphere to help retain colour for maximum coverage. It gives a soft-focus effect to the lips that help to blur imperfections for the appearance of smoother, younger skin. Not only does it leave lips moisturized, it keeps them soft, healthy and supple all day.
Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick provides medium coverage in a few swipes. It’s buildable, without feeling heavy and you can easily achieve true opaque colour (on most of the shades) with a few more swipes across the lips. It’s true-colour technology means you get the same great colour on your lips that you see in the tube. It has a velvety, satin finish without looking too shiny. Added bonus, it feels matte on the lips, none of that greasy or tacky feeling found in other lipsticks, yet is still comfortable to wear. It lasts for a solid 6+ hours before slowly fading, yet doesn’t bleed into the lips or feather outside the lines. It keeps lips feeling moisturized without the need of a lip balm.
Although the new Mary Kay Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick comes in a sleek, sexy and shiny black tube with silver detail, it features a clear lid that allows you to see the shade within (I love this). If you’re looking for a weightless, extremely moisturizing, incredibly soft and smooth lipstick, these are the ones for you. It’s easy to apply, feeling completely weightless and provides a slight sheen to the lips. Although a few of the shades are less pigmented than others, you can easily build up the intensity for stronger colour payoff. If you’re tired of those dry, matte lips that accentuate fine lines and looking for something softer and more comfortable to wear, take a closer look at these.
