[Video + Beauty Review] Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick ❤

Hello readers! Today I am back with another review and it's a lipstick review from the brand - Mary Kay. Mary Kay has released another range of hydrating lipsticks with luminous shine finish which is Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick

Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick 

2 years ago, I blogged about Mary Kay® lipsticks as well but they are in Semi-Matte finish. You may find the link here of the review here: Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Matte Lipstick ReviewMary Kay® offers women a choice of lipstick formulas and finishes to meet multiple needs and multiple occasions, from everyday life to memorable, once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick - Romantic Pink, Rosewood and Red Smolder

The new Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick range comes in 9 shades and priced at RM55, delivers radiant colour with luminous shine. Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick comes in black and silver packaging which are the same of last year's Gel Semi-Matte Lipsticks. The top of the packaging itself features a clear-top window that shows the lipstick's shade inside. 

The lightweight gel-formula lipstick utilises gel microsphere technology for rich, stay-true colour that delivers long-lasting wear - without leaving lips looking or feeling dry. Besides that, the lipstick is also formulated to provide a soft-focus effect, with optical dancers included to scatter light and blur the appearance of minor imperfections.

Let's start on with Romantic Pink shade. It's a soft pink shade which is suitable to be worn on the lips on a daily basis. This pink hue shade is definitely suitable for my daily look with natural makeup most of the time. 

Romantic Pink 

These shades are highly pigmented shades which provides intense colour. With Advanced "Cushion Matrix Technology", it utilises ultra fine silica microspheres to embed and retain colour on the surface of the lip. The cushiony texture and feel-good formula definitely delivers soft comfort leaving my lips feeling soft as if I am not putting on any lipstick. 

The pigments on the other hand are milled for 24-hours for an ultrafine, smooth colour which explains why they are highly pigmented. The base of this gel lipstick is translucent, allowing for rich colour saturation. Plus the pigment surface is specially coated to transform it to a gel-like fluidity, providing exceptional glide.

I have to say Rosewood is my second favourite shade apart from Romantic Pink. This nude shade is suitable to be worn on daily basis as well. I seldom put on bright lipsticks to attend events and this shade is definitely great for day time events. 

Last but not least, it would be the Red Smolder which is the red shade. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of red shades as I can't get used to wearing bold and bright red shade on my lips. However, this red hue shade surprised me as it helps to bring out the colours on my face especially I am more towards the fair skin tone. Since I put on neutral shades for my eyeshadow on regular basis, this will definitely brighten up my face. 

Overall, the lipstick's formula is amazing. Apart from the semi-shine finish, I love how it does not feel dry on my lips after a few hours of application thanks to their jojoba butter and sunflower seed oil. These two ingredients help to condition the lips leaving the lips soft and smooth.

Since I have dry, sensitive and chapped lips, I am particular about the formula and texture of the lipstick. To my surprise this lipstick leaves my lips feeling smooth even after reapplying for a few times in a day without making my lips feeling dry and cracked. This has become my favourite lipstick by far as I do not have to use lip balm every few hours. 

On the other hand, the lipstick glides on smoothly and delivered full opacity of the colour with just one swipe. I do not have to apply another layer to build up the colour. You will definitely try this if you prefer a full coverage lipstick that won't leave your lips looking or feeling dry. 

L-R: Romantic Pink, Rosewood and Red Smolder. Which is your favourite shade?
