Mary Kay Rose Pearl Lip Shimmer might just be one of the nicest shimmery glosses I've ever tried- and I'm normally not the biggest fan of such glittery glosses. The gloss has a really comfortable formula that isn't the least bit tacky on lips. The gloss is light weight, and on the sheer side, but gives a great dose of fine shimmer- which didn't want to show up on camera, but trust me, there is lots there. The shimmer is very fine and as such doesn't feel gritty on lips. It wears nicely on it's own but it also pairs nicely over lipstick.

And now, the star of the show- Mary Kay Semi- Matte Lipsticks in Pink Moonstone and Ruby Night. These lipsticks have become seriously become my absolute faves! The shades are perfect for Fall- more on that in a moment- but it's the formula that really makes these something special. They have a soft matte finish, that wears so nicely, and does so for hours. They apply pretty creamy, and dry down ever so slightly, but stay comfortable on lips and even seem to be lightly hydrating.

Pink Moonstone is a shade that looks a bit dull in the tube, but is all kinds of perfect on lips. It's a rosy nude cream with a beigey undertone. I've been pairing this with a smoky gold and burgundy eye and it is the perfect combo.

Ruby Night is a deep, brown based red cream. This is what I tend to think of as a 90's red, what with the brown base, but the brown also makes this really wearable as it doesn't lean too cool or warm. This shade pairs really nicely with a simple swipe of black liner. Love!

Overall, two great lip options, but the Semi-Matte Lipsticks are what make my heart swoon. I highly suggest both! What do think- need either in your life? Stay tuned for the rest of the Midnight Jewels Collection posts coming soon!
