Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick review

Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick review

I am always on the look out for gorgeous everyday lipsticks with moisturizing ingredients, and it seems I’ve finally found some great options! The 10 shades I have here are new additions to the line, a good variety of different hues and finishes.

The buttery-smooth-feeling formula melts onto lips, instantly drenching them in moisture and locking it in. Infused with advanced skin care ingredients, the formula smooths the appearance of fine lines and helps lips look fuller.

PACKAGING:
The tube has a click-button top release, and I’m not sure how I feel about it. You push down on the top then pull the lipstick out of the bottom, as shown above. I would love to know if there is any added value to the package design. Does it keep the lipstick airtight? Who knows.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Berries a la Mode lip
Berries a la Mode is a beautiful rich plum with a semi-opaque satin creme finish.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Berries a la Mode
FORMULA:
This one slips and slides a bit and has a tendency to feather.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Berries a la Mode look
A nice alternative to super vampy burgundy.

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Chocolate lip
Chocolatte is a warm semi-opaque chocolate brown with a satin creme finish.

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Chocolate
FORMULA:
This one sticks a bit more and is a wee bit more pigmented.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Chocolate look
Eeeeh, not so sure about this brown colour on me. It leans quite orange.

 

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Citrus Fruit lip
Citrus Fruit is an orange coral with a hint of shimmer.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Citrus Fruit
FORMULA:
This one is quite translucent with a lot of slip, which can diminish the wear a bit. This creeped into my fine lines too. Creeper.

The colour itself is quite lovely though. A touch on the warm side. The shimmer doesn’t have a grittiness either.

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Coral Bliss lip
Coral Bliss is actually less coral and more rose.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Coral Bliss
FORMULA:
Fairly similar in formula to Citrus Fruit, it has some slip and a bit of shimmer. A nice glaze on my lips though.

I was really expecting a vibrant coral with this one but am pleasantly surprised at the sheer beauty it is.

 

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Exotic Mango lip
Exotic Mango is a rose gold shimmer.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Exotic Mango 2
FORMULA:
Sheer with lots of warm gold sparkle. The glitter doesn’t migrate and is non-grit.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Exotic Mango look
Much like the Coral Bliss, this is quite natural on me and leaves a beautiful gold sheen on my lips.

 


Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 First Blush lip
First Blush is a pink rose with a satin creme finish.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 First Blush
FORMULA:
The finish is semi-opaque with a slight hint of shimmer which is barely noticeable.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 First Blush look
This is a few shades darker than my natural lip colour but in the same shade family so it looks extremely natural on me.

 

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Lava Berry lip
Lava Berry a neutral plum shimmer.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Lava Berry
FORMULA:
Creamy and fairly pigmented, this one sticks well and is easy to apply. There is shimmer but not overpowering.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Lava Berry look
I am in love with this one. Mostly because it’s the most purple of the bunch, but also since it’s a unique colour in my vast lipstick collection.

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Sassy Fuchsia lip
Sassy Fuchsia is a cool blue-t0ned hot pink.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Sassy Fuchsia
FORMULA:
Highly pigmented and extremely creamy, this shade will leave a stain behind that is quite beautiful (and impossible to remove).

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Sassy Fuchsia look
Like many of the hot pinks I have, this one really complements my fair complexion. The blue tone even makes my teeth look a touch whiter.

 

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Tangerine Pop lip
Tangerine Pop is a pinky-orange shimmer.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Tangerine Pop
FORMULA:
Semi-sheer and creamy, this one has less slip and slide than the other sheers. It just leaves a nice hint of pink shimmer.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Tangerine Pop look
Again, another nice rose-coloured lipstick for my everyday rotation. Not sure why it’s called “Tangerine Pop” though because it isn’t really a bold pop of tangerine orange.

 

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Tuscan Rose lip
Tuscan Rose is a semi-opaque warm rose in a satin creme finish.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Tuscan Rose
FORMULA:
Pigmented and creamy, this doesn’t really slip a lot and does tend to stick to my lips.

Mary Kay True Dimensions lipstick 2014 Tuscan Rose look
I saved the best for last (which alphabetically worked out for me). This one is almost a “my lips but better” only a shade deeper, darker rose.
