Stellar is right on, this has NO pigment and *only* looks nice and creamy over lipstick. But it won't do anything by itself. Even on my wrist it seemed to have as much color as lipglasses but on the lips, no way. Same applies to the pretty partial pink version of this line, although it has a tint more pigment, just a tint. So many cheaper things do what this does. It won't change lipstick colors much since it has no color hardly, but will make them more milky, again, like other glosses that are cheap. It's less sticky than lipglass but also little staying power and at least the lipglasses have pigment to them. The only reason I ever consider dept store and Sephora lines is because their glosses sometimes have more pigment, I expect drugstore stuff to be more sheer. And yet it's sometimes the reverse, depending on product. Surprised the reviews for this are as good as they are, maybe some people truly like it and can differentiate between this and other sheer glosses, and maybe others just like the idea of MAC.
I really wish I had the good luck that others have had with this! I just received it in the mail today and I'm not impressed. Sure, I love the awesome, creamy gel texture! What I don't love is the fact that this gives my lips no color whatsoever! It looks absolutely perfect in the tube, and even when I swatch it on my hand. But when I apply it on my naturally pigmented lips, it basically disappears. It looks nice over nude lipsticks, such as Myth, Creme d'Nude, Equality, etc., but I have about 8 other glosses that look just as good over them. For $18 I can't justify keeping a gloss that's invisible on my lips, and does the job that other glosses I have can do over lipsticks. Back to MAC it goes!
I purchased this after I got the partial to pink & I really like this, its a creamy nude gloss, which I'm a fan of (the nude lip!). I would buy it again but I believe it was a LE even though its a bit on the pricey size & I don't there is as much product in the tube compared to the regular lipglasses even though the cremesheen tubes look bigger! continued >>
I just bought this product for the first time today from the Too Fabulous collection my local Mac store. I normally don't bother with cremesheens as they are very sheer and I find they don't last very long but I tried this on in store and I love love loved it. I like a plain lip, especially during the day and Boy Bait is the perfect colour for a nude lip and it feels really nice on and lasts remarkably well for a cremesheen. I have to agree with the comment below about putting it on over Macs creme d'nude lipstick - it really is a gorgeous combination!
MY FAVORITE LIPGLOSS. not too sticky. PERFECT nude color. Works nicely on it's own to give me the perfect nude lip. Or put it on top of ANY lipstick and it makes the lipstick look even more amazing. It is sheer, but it's also buildable. Somewhat expensive (cremesheens have less product and cost more).
If you haven't tried cremesheen glass u are missing out! They feel like lip balm but better bc of color payoff. If u found gaga lipstick to be off on your skin.. try overlining with naked liner and blend.. add gaga l/s then boy bait on top. I promise its the best combo I've seen with the gaga l/s!
i purchased this yesterday. not sticky. you can wear it alone or with nude beige or pink lipstick.
I really love this its not sticky like lipglass love the texture I usually wear it over a nude lipstick to top off a smokey eye look Im glad they finally made this perm !
On it's own, boy bait is a waste because it is so sheer. However, I LOVE it over my creme d'nude l/s. It creates the perfect nude lip. The texture is beautiful, so much better than the lipglass IMO. I don't get the milk mouth like I do with so many of my favorite lipglasses such as Oyster Girl and Florabundance. I gave the packaging a low rating because these cremesheens are more expensive than the lipglasses and contain about half the product. It can take me up to a year to go through a lipglass where it took me literally 2 months to go thru my tube of Ever So Rich applying it sparingly maybe twice a day. Ridiculous. And being that these are L/E, that is definitely not a good thing. But I'm a sucker and I really like the product so I'm sure I'll buy several next Christmas so I don't run out lol.
Too sheer. Nothing special at all about this lip gloss.
