It's 2017 as I write this, and this lipstick (and the entire brand) are long gone, however I remember very clearly when the Monica Lewinsky interview with Barbara Walters happened, and the big to-do about her makeup, and her lip look in particular. At one point in the early 2000s I tracked down a Glaze lipstick, but it, too is long gone from my collection. I DO remember it clearly, though. It was one of the few lipsticks at the time that was a sheer formulation. I think Clinique's Almost Lipstick is similar (dark but sheer), and Black Honey is its claim to fame (worn by Julia Roberts in the film "Stepmom"). I recently came across a pretty spot-on dupe for Club Monaco's Glaze and it is Cover Girl's Oh Sugar! (vitamin infused balm) in the color Gumdrop. It's a sheer plummy color that looks dark in the tube but looks shiny and sheerly natural on the lips. To get the actual Monica look, though, you have to layer this color over a warm light brown yellow lip liner (the makeup artist at the time used a Club Monaco color called "Bare"), and a lip gloss on top that is a sheer orange with no shimmer (her makeup artist used a Club Monaco gloss called "Cherub"). I decided to find some affordable dupes to try to recreate the look and chose NYX's Suede Matte Lip Liner in London (lined and smudged all over the lips), layered on Cover Girl's Gumdrop, then topped with NYX's Butter Gloss in Cherry Cheesecake. The effect is actually really pretty and 3-dimensional, since you're putting a warm color over a deep cool color that is laid on top of a light warm color. Does anyone else have a similar experiment to share?

If wrinkled dried out lips is the look you want,then buy this. The colors were fun but the look and quality was awful! Yuk!
