Mary Kay MP

Hi beauty peeps!

Did you all miss me? Well, I’m back again to share my two cents on one of my favorite cosmetic items *drum rolls* yes it’s lipstick! For me, lipsticks are one of the best item to enhance your look. You can go for a subtle nude look to a fun girly color and end it with a sexy siren look. Don’t you agree that we can never have too many lipsticks?

As most of you know, I’ve got really chapped lips. My idea of a really good lipstick is one that lasts throughout the day without the need to constantly reapply and yet offer moisturizing benefits. Let’s see whether I’ve found the perfect one in Mary Kay® Gel Semi-Shine Lipstick.
