I love MAC lipglasses, this is what got me hooked on lip gloss period. Before that I found lip gloss scary and stick and so annoying, I thought I had thin lips. Wow, I"m like addicted. I discovered I have full lips!? You NEED TO TRY THIS IF YOU HAVEN"T! And, as much as it looks small in package size, if you check the contents as I have compared, most other brands have a lot less or equal amounts in content when it comes to actual product amount, the packaging just looks small.
Oh, and to anybody who complains about the label rubbing off as time wears by, you can put clear nail polish over the label to keep it from rubbing off and to seal in the ink. It's an invisible trick that I learnt from a MA at MAC. And this doesn't affect the product whatsoever for Back2MAC program!
I have several tinted lipglasses from MAC and just recently acquired Kumquat and Ember Glow from the Spring Collection part 2 (Coral). Although the color selection is vast, I find it either a hit or miss (colorwise). Yes it's sticky, as some reviewers had already stated. However, there are some colors that are just so lovely that I'm willing to tolerate the stickiness. Color pay-off wise, some are very pigmented that they can be worn alone and some are almost colorless and needs a lipstick or liner underneath it to make the color pop. I don't care for the shimmery ones at all and much prefer the ones that are creamy w/out the shimmer. Lasting power is alright. I can get a decent 4-5 hrs of wear if I don't eat or drink anything. Overall though, Lipglass is one of the better lipglosses I have tried as far as color selection goes. I certainly prefer MAC's Lipglass over the likes of NARS and Stila glosses.
i don't really wear lipgloss.. i'm happy with lip balm most of the time.. i got this bec it looked really good when i tried it in the store.. but when i got home, it sucked.. sticky, heavy and it's not that glossy.. anyways, i would use it from time to time so it doesn't go to waste.. will not buy again..
p.s. i like the compact packaging.. it's small and cute
I love the colors and I love the staying power. Lipglass will really stick to your lips and the colors are awesome! The only problem I have is they are so tiny for the price!
PROS: The colors are fab.
CONS: A little sticky.
ALTERNATES: A dupe for this is Revlon Superlustrous. For this color tone with more sparkle (and a little stickier), try NYX's Liquid Lipshine (I think that's the name) in Pink Sand.
The MAC Lipglass comes in some beautiful shades, and doesn't require too many touch-ups. In short, it does it's job. My only concern is the sticky-ness of the gloss, it's quite sticky and thick. But, overall the product is good, the shades are cute, the smell is sweet and it looks good on my lips! By the way I have this in Russian Red and Pink Poodle. Both look cute, but Pink Poodle comes out top, it has that perfect summer/spring fling look :)
These lipglasses get 3.5 lippes from me. I really love the color selection and the tube is pretty sleek. However, I just cannot get over how incredibly sticky and goopy they are. It feels gross going over my lips and the formula is not very conditioning, so it winds up sitting on top. I like my glosses to sink in, at least a little. The smell and taste is acceptable compared to other HE glosses and the staying power is pretty decent using lipliner and the lip glass over. MAC lipglass works best for me at formal functions or parties where no food will be served. It lasts forever if you just leave it alone. MIGHT purchase again if it is a HG color I can't find from another brand.
I have several lipglass and I love them all dearly. There are so many colours to choose from, and although some people find them a bit sticky, I find that the stickiness is what helps them to stay on all day.
i have this in Pink Lemonade. its a corally pink color...a very very pretty color. its kind of a thick formula, but its not too thick (in my opinion of course, but i dont see how it would be too thick for most people. its like subtly creamy) and its very pigmented. theres no glitter/sparkles. its pretty shiney and looks great. it seems moisturizing even. i have dark brown hair, brown eyes and light skin and this looks great on me. my new favorite lipgloss!!!!!!! i cant wait to try the ones with the sparkles. and mac doesnt test on animals :).
I do not the lipglass. The consistency is too sticky, thick and glopy. The tube also get really messy and makes a mess for some reason. The colors are beautiful I just can't stand the consitency! I do however love love love the plushglasses.
