Review: MÃa MariÃº Hydrating Stick Gloss (I call it a lipstick!)
20 Nov 2012
No matter what age, skin color or hair color you have, every girl needs to have at least one good lipstick in her purse! A color that you can easily apply, matches with which ever eye makeup you have on and instantly makes you feel pretty. 🙂
I’ve recently received a lipstick that I absolutely love! It’s called Beso (meaning: kiss) and it’s by MÃa MariÃº, a brand that specializes in botanical beauty. As you can see it’s a pale hot pink, such a pretty color. I love how ‘fresh’ and girly it looks. It’s pigmented, doesn’t last all that long on my lips, but I like how shiny it looks!
As a woman of color I’m usually more attracted to darker colors (especially in the Fall and Winter) or nude colors. When I do grab for pink, it’s usually a berry pink or a mauve pink. This color is different for me and I absolutely love it! I also like how shiny and moisturizing it feels on my lips: it feels like a lip balm! Check out more pictures (I also included a swatch) and tell me how you like it!
Swatches of MÃa MariÃº Hydrating Stick Gloss in ‘Beso’
MÃa MariÃº calls her lipsticks hydrating stick glosses, because they combine color and hydrating gloss in a stick firm. They’re enriched with vitamins and minerals to protect your lips from dryness.
The Hydrating Stick Glosses retail for $15. The one I’m wearing in the pictures above is called Beso and there are 9 other different shades to choose from (‘SeducciÃ³n’ is also very nice!). You can find all shades here. Had you heard of MÃa MariÃº before?
