A new summer release, the Mary Kay at Play Lip & Cheek Stick in Peach Pop* and Razzleberry* yet duo cream product that comes in small, functional packaging that unfortunately looks a little cheap. However, the tiny size does make it great for touch-ups or travel.
The Mary Kay at Play Lip & Cheek Stick in Peach Pop and Razzleberry may look unassuming, but they actually pack quite a punch of pigment. The firm cream product twists up, and you can dab it directly onto your cheeks, but it is too wide to do that with the lips. I use a finger to apply to my lips, but as always a lip brush would also work. These shades are actually so pigmented, I use a duofibre brush when applying them to my cheeks as well as gentle hand and some generous blending.
Mary Kay at Play Lip & Cheek Stick in Peach Pop is coral-leaning peach and my favourite of the two, simply because I find it both more summery and easier for me to apply and wear. As you can tell from the swatches, it is still incredibly pigmented so I did use a light hand. Although these products do work okay on both lips and cheeks, I find them both easier to apply to the cheeks, and better suited to less-dry skin. My lips aren’t in great shape at the moment and both shades tended to cling to dry patches.
Mary Kay at Play Lip & Cheek Stick in Razzleberry is an incredibly vibrant purple berry that would work amazing on darker skin tones but I had to be quite careful with. That said, it does blend out nicely and I probably could have gone with a heavier application but I was already going pretty bright on the eye makeup that day. Unsurprisingly, it did leave behind a stain on my lips however the wear on my cheeks with both shades was just okay (about 5 hours, although it has been pretty hot out!)
Overall, I think the Mary Kay at Play Lip & Cheek Stick in Peach Pop and Razzleberry are a bit of a surprise, I honestly did not expect that bang of pigment when I saw them, and these little tubes will last forever. Although I do have to be careful when applying them, I especially like Peach Pop! What do you think?
