AMW Reviews: Mary Kay "Pink Changing Lives" Creme Lipstick

Happy Friday!!!
Its Mary Kay Philippine's 11th anniversary the month of May and they are thrilled to introduce their two latest product offerings:
  • Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara 
  • Limited Edition Beauty That Counts Mary Kay Creme Lipstick


Mary Kay Philippines is taking part on its Corporate Social Responsibility campaign called Beauty that Counts to support a local charitable institution in its effort to help change lives of women and children.  For every Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Give Dreams sold, Mary Kay will donate $1.00 (approx $45.00) starting May 16 to December 31, 2011.

Give Dreams is a shade specifically made for the campaign and to show gratitude to buyers, the lipstick comes in a unique tube that says "Thank You" in different languages! 

Here's the exact lipstick I've been using for more than a week! 


Mary Kay Creme Lipstick says ---
Pink Melon, Shell, Apricot Glaze, Dusty Rose -- these are just a few subtly sweet shades. Long-wearing, stay-true color glides on with a lightweight creamy texture for unforgettable tips. Choose from 13 pout-prettying shades.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • For the limited edition lipstick: I have nothing more to say but this is the best packaged lipstick I own!  Love the idea of Thank you on different languages.  

Photo below shows "Thank You" 
in different languages
  • For the regular package creme lipstick: really good, plain black lipstick packaging with the shade of the lipstick on top for you to easily see the shade without looking at the bottom for shade name.

  • Smooth and easy to apply.
  • Does not flake on my dry lips
  • Very pigmented, one swipe is enough for the color to show up.
  • No weird scent.
  • It gives a hint of coral and a hint of pink shade which works well on most blushers!
Cons
  • Limited edition :( I would love to have this packaging forever! :P  *wishful thinking*
  • Shades can only be seen if you meet up with Beauty Consultants, they are not found inside malls.
Overall
Mary Kay Creme Lipsticks are moisturizing, creamy and pigmented.  Stays on lips for a good amount of time!

Tips
  • If you have no way to test on products, search for lipstick swatches online.
  • If you have extremely dry lips, prep your lips by moisturizing it properly, blot with tissue then apply lipstick.
  • To make lipstick last longer, apply first layer, blot, re-apply second layer, blot and go ahead and apply for the third.  It'll last longer!
  • Want to lessen the shine of the lipstick?  Pat on translucent powder on top of the lipstick!  It helps prevent lipstick from sliding off.
  • If you want shinier looking lips, top with your favorite clear gloss on top of the lipstick!  An inexpensive favorite of mine is the Fashion 21 Fruity Flavored Gloss!
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
All lipstick lovers!

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant by calling them at (632) 859-6211 or visit www.marykay.com.ph if you wish to know more details.  The Mary Kay Creme Lipstick costs Php650.00 (approx $15.10). 
Shade: Give Dreams
Sunny Coral pink


Applied on bare lips 2x each lip


The shade works on any skin color and the color looks brighter as the person gets to be fairer!
Mine look a bit brighter on photos because I have pigmented lips to start with :)
Just in case you see me today, yes, I'm wearing this! :D
