Introducing Mary Kay's Gel Semi-Shine Lipsticks + Swatches

Introducing Mary Kay's Gel Semi-Shine Lipsticks & Swatches || The Glam Surge
Just when I thought I was just a bit more closer to having an appropriately sized lipstick collection, Mary Kay had to be so generous and send me their whole new Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick Collection*. On the outside and just for a split second, I was rolling my eyes. However the lipstick junkie inside of me could not keep in the excitement and I was pretty much over the moon about them. I immediately took some photos and got to swatching! 

These lipsticks are a slight step away from the matte-finish trend as they have more of a luminous shine in contrast of their Semi-Matte lipsticks that they launched last year. They're called Gel Semi-Shine Lipsticks because they use the genius of gel technology. The lipsticks are meant to glide on smoothly, cushion the lips, have a long-lasting formula, and also be true to colour.

Now I haven't tried them all yet, but I can tell you from swatching them that they do glide on extremely smoothly, they're pigmented and very true to colour. Also, since they're not matte, I feel like they'll be perfect for a bit of moisture boost during this time of year as most people have the problem of dry lips during the cold. Overall, I'm pretty impressed by these and know I'll be using them a lot this season. The Semi-Shine Lipsticks* will be available on the Mary Kay website on November 16th.

Products marked with a (*) were sent to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.
