Purchased Driven by Love which is a true red. It doesn't smudge or bugde & its long lasting. The price is steep for the amount you get & it is a gloss. However nothing else like it so what else can a Diva do? Mac also made their packaging smaller so you get less for more $. Didn't notice until my sister showed me an older tube she had. Color looks great on all skin tones. My fair blond& my Lebanese & my asian friend all look great with this.
Hands down, these are the best glosses on the market. I call these "adult glosses" because they aren't sticky, are long wearing, have amazing color payoff, the shine is straight up like patent leather or latex, and they don't feather. The smell is delicious, sort of a sultry vanilla? Something like that. It's a mystery scent that is hard to define and as silly as it sounds comes off kind of like aromatherapy in that it puts a little extra pep into your day as ya breathe it in.
Cons: I find these a little more expensive than they should be for sure - really there's no reason for these not to be abt $5 bucks cheaper than they are ($20 each). Also the color range is kind of a bummer because it's there are only like 10 choices, which is why I tend to gravitate toward limited editions (such as the latest, Anthurium, which is an amazing shade of red).
I really like using Patience Please on top of my Mac FreckleTone Lustre Lipstick and Lip Balm underneath both of those. It's a bit sticky and thick. It doesn't last nearly as long as the product claims, but I still enjoy using it. I absolutely love the colour as well and find it leaves my lips looking wonderful and glossy!
Love love love this lip gloss! Great colour, not too sticky, lasts well and doesn't dry my lips out. Bought in two shades and will buy more. Easy day or night. Shade Iinfinitely Likeable is just that.
This is an amazing longlasting lip product!
At first when I got it - I thought the texture was a bit too sticky and I didn't really liked the feel of stiff application. However my opinion has changed dramatically.
I found it in my makeup bag again, after couple of years of neglecting it, omg - it still smells and feels like if I just opened it (usually glosses get smelly and bitter, so I toss them away). I wore it to the office and it lasted from 9 am to 2 pm (lunch) and after re-application another 4-5 hours! The other time I wore it for a concert and when I was back (I been drinking and snacking) - it was still beautifully sitting on my lips.

Great lip gloss, start with a little at first then.build up to the color you want because it is thick. I love the brush it comes with. I bought this inthe color love love love, a baby pink. With tax 21.50 worth it.
I picked up this gem in a local CCO in the shade Show Me! As promised the long wear lip glass endured 5 hours and maintained through breakfast and a couple rounds of coffee. The lip glass has the traditional vanilla scent and has a sticky and some what thick texture. The lip glass is highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. You will know if you have over applied, it will gather around the edges of your lips. Grab these over MAC's regular lip glasses anyway. Looking forward to trying additional shades.
This has to be the longest wearing gloss ever! MAC wasn't kidding with the title. A little goes a long way so be careful not to overdo it. I can appreciate the wide range of shades and they even have nude shades for nude lovers like me. I will repurchase.
my first MAC purchase!i have this in forever rose and its a pretty deep pink colour that goes almost red-ish on my lips.i really like the gloss as it looks quite glamourous and its no fuss at all,you just slap it on and go.definitely longwearing,more than any other lipgloss i've ever tried,which is why it' has a sticky texture.what dissapoints me is that when i take it off i can see that it has dried my lips an makes it flakey which is why i took one lippy off.i have warm olive skin tone with yellow undertones and this lippy suits my skin really well.it's perfect for party scenes or if you wanna go a little bold on makeup for the day,which i usually do cause i love me a bold lippy :)
I bought this one in the colour Driven by Love. It is a scarlet shimmering red, that does not make my teeth look yellow.
It is quite sticky, so do not hesitate to apply full amount on your lips because it is not supposed to be sheer. I do apply some lip balm underneath to keep my lips moisturised.
I love this lip gloss! It is highly pigmented, does not dry out my lips and stays on for a really long time. It is absolutely gorgeous. I have not tried any other brands that has this kind of long stay pigmented lip gloss, but I will definitely repurchase this one.
