Mary Kay True Dimensions Sheer Lipstick

Non-makeup addicts never seem to understand this, but there is something so fulfilling when a new addition of a product you already love is released. It's more to love and a reason to add a few more of something to your collection, unless the formula is totally wrong, which can be utterly disappointing... No worries though, if like me, you happen to be a fan of Mary Kay's True Dimensions Lipsticks, as the new Sheer version is just as amazing as the original- maybe better... Read on!

The Mary Kay True Dimensions Sheer Lipsticks are housed in the same stylish, silver tubes as their fuller coverage counterparts. In case you missed my review of the originals, check it out here. Just like the fuller coverage version, the sheers have the clear viewing window that you push to release the tube from the lid. I love the packaging! The 'click' is so satisfying and you can actually see the shade you're reaching for via the window.

As for the actual lipstick, it has a balmy, lightweight formula that contains sunflower seed oil, jojoba, and mango butter to nourish and hydrate, along with vitamin E which helps protect lips from free radicals and environmental damage. I love how these feel on lips! My lips have been pretty dry the past few weeks, but I can slather these on without thinking as the creamy formula glides on with ease and doesn't cling to dry patches. The formula does a great job at providing colour and shine but really does offer great hydration as well. MK calls these lipsticks, but they really could have been called tinted lip balms.

Arctic Apricot is quite orange looking in the tube, but as it is a sheer, it applies as a peachy shade. Out of the four sheer shades, this is the only one free of shimmer.

Posh Pink is a rosey, medium pink in the tube that gives lips a light pink wash with light shimmer. The shade is really fresh and clean looking- perfect for Spring!

Sparkling Rosè is a deep plummy-rose in the tube that gives lips a wash of mauvey-pink colour (think my lips but better) with light shimmer. A great everyday, anytime shade.

Subtly You is a medium taupe-brown in the tube that gives lips a wash of milky nude colour with light shimmer. I love sheer nudes, as they work with your lip colour to create the perfect nude shade, as this one does.

Overall, you really can't go wrong with any of these shades, but Posh Pink and Subtly you happen to be my favourites. These will be available as of Feb.16th via a Mary Kay rep or online. Tried these? What's your take on sheer lip shades- yay or nay?
