Lipsticks are one of those things you just can’t have enough of. Even the slightest shade differentiation will make me want to buy a new one. Mary Kay has been on of those lipstick brands I just love and swear by. I’ve got a slew of great reds (three featured here that are all slightly different) and a few pinks that I’ve recently added to the collection. Here’s a look at some of those favorite shades.
This is the newest one to my collection and was discovered while at #TBScon this summer. Our makeup artist was using all Mary Kay products and she put this on me on the last day and I just loved it. I loved it so much that I stole it from her. Okay, she gave it to me. But it’s a great deep red with a hint of brown in it and makes for a great fall lip color. It’s also a nice change from my usual go to reds. I’ve been wearing this A LOT lately on the blog as seen here and here.
This pink is the perfect every day pink. I swipe it on when I’m not in the mood to get all dolled up as it’s just enough color without being too bold for day time. It also wears nicely since it isn’t super duper saturated so you won’t be left with a weird hot pink line around your lips, which I can’t stand!
My OG lip color from Mary Kay. I discovered this 2 years ago while in Dallas for the ACM awards with Mary Kay and it was a game changer. I also love the coordinating lip liner for a truly sultry look. This and the below, Really Red, are very close in color. One’s a little more cherry than the other and both will look great on just about anyone. If you’re looking for a deeper color that’s a little more vampy, go with this one. The below Really Red is definitely more of your standard red lip! You’ve also seen me wear this Red three different ways by changing up the application which you can read here.
So this one and the Red are a little hard to tell the difference in in these pics (sorry about that!) but I swear they’re different. The Really Red hue is a touch more bright candy color red and if you’re looking for a truly classic bright red lipstick, this is it! This one is a definite favorite of mine and I find myself grabbing this one the most out of all of these. It’s ideal for a daytime red lip as it’s not so deep and sexy looking as the Red. If you’re in need of a new everyday red lipstick, I recommend this one as it’s a solid lip hue.
