I absolutely love these lipsticks! They moisturize my lips like a lip balm which is a plus because I love lipbalm and the colors are great! I am olive skin tone and my favorites are rosette and sienne brulee. Really pretty <3. Plus they have vitamins to keep lips healthy and young. Its a must have! Get it! Try samples from a Mary Kay consultant. Mine had all the colors so it was great.
It's not really a lipstick, more like a heavily tinted lip balm. It's not hydrating enough to be a good lip balm, not tinted enough to be a good lipstick, it's just somewhere in the middle. This could be good for those who enjoy something like this. I have it in Mystic Plum and it's a nice color for Autumn, but I wouldn't cry if I ever ran out.
Also, the packaging looks nice because the entire outside shell is one piece. It's hard to describe, but you open the lipstick by pushing at the clear plastic on the top, which forces the bullet out from the bottom. It was annoying to figure out; and if you don't close it properly, you can wind up smudging lipstick on to the top.
I have this in Natural Beaute. I am so not impressed with this. This does a good job conditioning my lips and keeping them moisurized, etc. but does not have the color or staying power I like in lipstick and doesn't really come in very many colors. I am going to try to wear it under a color I like and see how that works.
