This lip liner was my first ever purchase from Mary Kay last year. I picked it up from Ebay on discount. I’ve never really been a lip liner gal, but this shade kinda called out to me and being a sucker for pink meant I couldn’t resist temptation 🙂
About Mary Kay Lip Liners:
Twist, line, twist back. Mary KayÂ® Lip Liner features a smooth, creamy, waterproof formula and a retractable pencil that never needs sharpening. It glides on easily with a clean, precise line that perfectly defines lips. And the color coding outside quickly tells you the shade inside.
My experience with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Dusty Pink:
- Packaging: This is a tiny, thin retractable pencil which is soooo tiny that it can fit into any tiny slot….even a denims pocket easily without fear of breaking!
- Color: This shade is an amazing dusty rose and is totally matte.
- Pigmentation & Texture: It’s really pigmented and this is visible in the swatches below which is just a single swipe (or stroke). It’s also creamy yet firm. So no danger of it breaking midway during application.
- Staying Power: This really does prolong the wear of a lipstick when used underneath as a base. Sometimes, I use this alone with a balm underneath as a lipstick and it looks really pretty.Â It isn’t drying either so no tension of it sinking into the lip lines.
I like this a lot because of the shade and how versatile it is. As you know, I have a lot of pink lipsticks and this shade is a perfect match to most of them. So it’s like a ‘One-shade-fits-all’ sort of a shade. I use it as a lip liner, as a lipstick over a balm and even all over my lips as a base before applying lipstick to ensure longer staying power.
I honestly can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t like this. It would suit almost all skintones and would work with a lot many lipsticks. So if you’re into lip liners, this lip liner or rather this shade would be a must have!
