this was my very first MAC product purchased. i've had some "iffy" reviews of it because of its stickyness, but when i bought it and tried it, it wasn't THAT bad. i wouldn't use it on "windy" if your hair isn't up...can get messy. typical MAC package and i like their packaging! so sophisticated :]
It does give that "glassy" shine- BUT is way to sticky & uncomfortable for me- I love Lips that SHINE- so I found a MUCH,MUCH better alternative to MAC LG- Elizabeth Arden has The same Divine result-great spearment taste-Dazzling glass shine-MINUS the sticky-Icky-"Rip your hair out"when it gets caught- Look
-I've been so Happy w/ Elizabeth Arden Clear Gloss for over a Year, & just heard that the Make-up Artist for 'Sex & the City' used this on all the Gals- that's probably why their Lips and HAIR Looked Great!
When MAC came out with the clear lipglass everyone had it so ofcourse I had to go out and get it. Needless to say I was impressed with the shine and staying power but the stickiness really wasn't comfortable. Fastforward 6 years, it's collecting dust in my drawer simply because I can't wear it everyday as a clear gloss. It is so sticky that I need to prep my lips and apply it carefully so I sometimes I use it when going out but I have found better alternatives such as Elizabeth Arden Crystal Clear which a lot more comfortable and the packaging is better, doesn't leak out. So get the clear lipglass if you must but remember you won't be able to use it a lot.
This is a pretty pricey clear gloss, but it does seem to last forever. I've had mine for a LONG time! It just takes a little dab. I don't like how it feels like glue, though. If I get it on my hands it's hard to get off. If I try to wipe it off with a tissue (which I don't anymore), I get little pieces of lint all over my lips! It really has some staying power. But, I don't think it's a good daywear gloss. I only use it when I know I'm not going to be in the wind or have my hair in my face, like when I'm at a bar, club, or party just sitting and relaxing. It's best for evening use.
UPDATE: Do NOT waste your money on this!! I, like many of you, have found N.Y.C. Kiss Gloss in Cool Mint. It's not exaclty like MAC Lipglass because it's BETTER! That's right, and over 1/4 the price (less than $3.00, US). MAC doesn't smell, this has a nice mint scent; plus, it's not as sticky feeling and annoying as MAC, but has GREAT staying power. If you're thinking of getting MAC, get this, instead! I PROMISE you, it's SO much better and cheaper. PLUS, it has a slanted tube, as opposed to MAC's rounded tube. You'll LOVE it! Superglossy lips - Beautiful!
I really like this lip glass, you can put it over any lipstick and have that high glossy look. It makes your lips look like a shiny plastic! It's very sticky, but that's not unusual for high glosses like these. I'd definitely repurchase again.
it's just a plain ol clear lip gloss for an outrageous price. You can find this for much cheaper somewhere else. I love mac products, and im the biggest fan, but i would rather buy their tinted lipglass than the clear one, because it's just a waste of money. I have a whole bunch of tinted lipglass and i love it
Staple, Staple, Staple - even if I have to pull my stray hairs off my lips! I like the lipglasses because of the goopy formula - stays on a long time without reapplication.
This is hands-down the best clear lipgloss I've ever tried, and I've tried a LOT of stuff. It's VERY thick and pretty tacky, so if you're more a Bonne Bell kinda girl, stay away, 'cause this ain't for the weak of heart! The beauty of this lipgloss is how darn USEFUL it is--it provides a great "primer" for lipstick or lipgloss when dabbed very thinly on lips, gives a glass-like finish to your lips when spread thickly, adds mega-gloss to lipstick and colored lipgloss, moisturizes, and is the perfect overnight deep-conditioning treatment for lips (I kid you not--my lips look plump and smooth and lucious and AMAZING when I wake up after having smeared this on the night before!)
My HG <3
Honestly,this is a good product, but NYC clear Kiss Gloss is *exactly* the same.So save yourself about $12 and pass on the Lipglass (which is really messy anyway).
