I was so enthralled by the Heatherette collection that I *needed* to make a purchase and wanted it to be something different that stood out in my over flowing stash of lip products. This lipstick was it. It's very unique with the greenish glitter. I don't grab for it much, since lighter/nude lips can make me look a bit dead, but this lipstick is still beautiful.
I heard SO much rave about this particular lipstick shade by MAC. It was released in Heatherette as well as the Sugarsweet Collection. After reading numerous reviews, I decided to purchase it for a marked up price.
This lipstick is a frosted pink with a heavy green undertoning duochrome along with multicolor shimmer. It is a glaze finish. The shimmer is not at all gritty. The lipstick is also not drying. Like all MAC lipsticks, it has a warm vanilla scent has an average lasting time of 2-3 hours for me.
This lipstick to me wears like a lipgloss. It is pretty sheer which I expected with a glaze. The huge downside to this color is that is way too green based. It is not easy for me to wear alone like I thought it was going to be. A slightly pinked lipgloss would work with it but I wish it was a little easier to wear alone like I heard online. The color is very original and I recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a color like it but it is just not something I reach for much.
It's a beaaaautiful lipstick color, very comparable to Orgasm by Nars but it doesn't compliment my olive skin tone but it's okay, I'll put it into a lipstick palette and use it in my kit because it's gorgeous on blue/green undertones.. Loves it but not recommended for all skin tones
i love this lipstick! The colour is so unique cause of the green/gold duo chrome. Definitely would purchase again. Super flattering =)
How do i feel about this l/s? eh its nice but not something I would need a backup of since this is a LE. You really do have to make sure you exfoliate your lips before applying this or you will notice every dry crack in your lips, like a previous reviewer said, it looks best when you conceal your natural lip color.
The lipstick actually looks much prettier than the one in the main picture! Its the perfect coral with slight turquoise and gold shimmer. Very pretty in the tube, quite pretty swatched on the hand, not so much on the lips :( it makes me look washed out, its not pigmented at all and all I can see is a bit of shimmer, no coral! It shows up EVERY imperfection on my lip. I want to keep it just to look at the pretty colour in the tube and hopefully convince myself it's prettier than I actually think :(
I won't describe the shade as it seems like there are tons of other reviews on that.
I was excited to find this at a local CCS and bought this discontinued shade for a cool 10 bucks. Unfortunately, I don't really understand what the rave is all about- Perhaps this would work nicely on a person with blue undertones but it didn't really flatter my pale Asian pink undertoned skin.
This has to be my first MAC product I bought -- what a joke! I've got more color out of a lip balm! It looks pretty on the tube: its a peachy coral with green shimmers, but I didn't like the color payoff, its very subtle, almost no color at all, and its just shiny glitters on my lips. It just didn't work for me. And i had to agree with others about the texture, its gritty and rough, it emphasizes the lines of my dry lips more. I think i got a bad catch on this one.
I received this in a swap. At first I wasn't all that impressed, but the more I wear it, the more I like it. It's quite versatile, and I love the green sheen (which seems quite subtle). I agree the texture is a little gritty and I find it a little dry, but I always put vaseline under all lipsticks, so that doesn't really matter. Really pretty - I would buy it again.
I agree that this lipstick has a somewhat gritty texture, and that's about the one thing I don't like about it. It gives a nice wash of shimmery peach color. It's a peach colored lipstick with a golden sheen to it. It's fairly well pigmented, lasts quite a while on the lips, and is really easy to apply. I think this shade is pretty universally flattering as well.
