Mary Kay Paradise Calling Lacquered Lip Shine in Exotic Orchid, Tropical Mandarin & Sun Baked // Spring 2015

More colour from Mary Kay's Paradise Calling collection. It's brights for the lips - the Mary Kay Paradise Calling Lacquered Lip Shines ($19 each). Time to indulge in some colour.


Mary Kay Paradise Calling Lacquered Lip Shine in Sun Baked, Exotic Orchid and Tropical Mandarin
I'd classify the Mary Kay Paradise Calling Lacquered Lip Shines as thick, ultra-vivid glosses. With the exception of the nude shade (Sun Baked), these are one-swipe wonders but look even better with two. The lip shine is thick and plush. It feels moisturizing on the lips and smooths over fine lines and dry areas. These don't claim to be long wearing, nor are they. Eating and drinking and touching your lips will have the product rubbing off. Since they're slightly sticky, these aren't particularly awesome for windy days. Picture Tropical Mandarin streaks all over your face. Not fun. 

Let's talk about Sun Baked, the nude shade. It's a nice tangent from the two brights but kind of blah for me. It's the blah blah black sheep of the bunch. It takes three coats to get opaque and the light pigment of the nude shade catches onto dry areas.

Overall, this is a pretty-to-look-at product. The colours are vivid and vibrant and warming to the face - the right colours for the warmer weather. However, they're not long-wearing or easy to wear if you like to eat pizza. 

On another note, the Exotic Orchid and Tropical Mandarin shades correspond to the Nail Lacquers. I love it when my tips and lips can matchy-matchy!
