Wow, this is way stickier than the tinted l/glass! The MA showed me how to put it over lipliner to make an endless supply of lipgloss 'colors'. It's gorgeous over cranberry l/l. The best part is, you get color, but because the l/g outercoating is clear, you don't leave any marks on glasses, straws, sweetiw's cheeks, etc.
This gloss is very shiny! I will probably try Wet N Wild's clear gloss before I repurchse this because I find it has the same texture and is much cheaper.
This lipglass lasts FOREVER! =D
I have tried clear lip glosses from a variety of companies and let me tell you -- it does not compare. The quality is superb and really picks up the light on camera.
Deepens lighter lipsticks and etc. Also locks in lipliner.
Love it! A definite rave. continued >>
The staying power and shine were nice, but the texture was just too sticky for me. As others have mentioned, it became like fly-paper for my hair (blick!) - not so attractive to have to keep pulling my hair from my sticky lips.
I do not have any problems with the actual product at all. The Lipgloss is great if a bit sticky and gloppy, but if you want a patent leather like shine that lasts for hours, this is the Godfather of lipglosses (or should it be Godmother???) Personally, what I don't like is the Juicy Tubes-esque squeezy packaging. Unless you keep it upright you have to shake and shake and shake it. If you apply it straight onto your lips, you have to hunt for a tissue to wipe it clean, or you have to fiddle around to find a lipbrush. Way to fiddly for me (sorry, but I'm a straight from the tube girl) I prefer the other MAC tinted lipglasses that come in the tube with the applicator brush. It's a shame MAC don't do a clear applicator brush Lipglass (when are they going to wake up and inrtroduce one into what is a fantastic range???) So it's the packaging, not the product which is the reason why I wouldn't buy this product again. (NB: Men HATE being kissed by you wearing this stuff!!!)
Perfect lip gloss for a sexy look. Though sticky - but not overly so - this is my preferred HG clear lip gloss.
I finially bought this yesterday after trying so many times in macys. So far the gloss has the most powerful staying power, its a little sticky but its not bothering me. It last for a long time and its beautiful if you wear it along or over some color. its a little expensive for a clear lip gloss but i think this will last for a long time. Its also great for summer
Lint and stuff gets stuck under the cap if you carry it in your purse or pocket. Also, the minty smell is a little weird, as well as the taste. This gloss was simply WAY too sticky for me. I don't like sticky gloss to begin with, so this was a NIGHTMARE for me. VERY thick and VERY messy. However, it does make your lips look as if they're covered in very slippery cellophane, if that's the look you're going for.
Wow! I think that maybe I have found the perfect clear lipgloss. I put it on over mac's lac lustre since that dosent have much shine, so I added this and not only was it shiny, the color under it didnt budge for at least 50 mins! then I had to re-apply by the end of one of my classes at school.I like it and WIL buy it again!!!
USE WITH LIP BRUSH!
Last long, but it's a trade off since this will also make your lips dry and sticky..which I hate so I wont buy this product again.
