Every fall we see the “statement lip” come down the runway. Fall is such an exciting time for makeup, because we start to see the darker, more pigmented products released, and Mary Kay’s Hollywood Mystique look is certainly right on trend with their amazing red lipsticks.
With several different reds to choose from, as well as one of the best lip brushes I have ever tried, it’s so easy to take this trend and make it yours. The red I chose, Red, appears to have a neutral base, so it should work with most skin tones. Want something geared toward your current preferences or your skin tone? Not a problem – there are several reds in the collection and you will certainly find one that you like.
What makes the lipsticks even more on trend is the matte formula. Unlike many matte formulations out there at the moment, Mary Kay managed to create a gorgeous formula that isn’t drying or chalky. Even after several hours of wear, the lipstick stayed true to color and my lips still felt hydrated. We’ve been seeing all kinds of matte products lately, from lipstick to blush to eyeshadows, and the look isn’t going away any time soon. However, with Mary Kay’s coordinating glosses, you can take your look from matte to shimmery in just one application of their non-sticky, long-wearing gloss.
Application with Mary Kay’s small paddle-shaped brush gives you excellent control, and makes this stand-out color easier to apply than just using the tube. Apply with short, feathery strokes, and pay special attention to the cupid’s bow area of the lips for the best look. Be sure to blot and reapply for even longer staying power.
A quick tip: having a hard time getting your lipstick off at the end of the day? Use a little of MaryKay’s eye makeup remover on a cotton pad and whisk it right off. The non-drying formula will feel amazing on your lips as well.
