Review of MAC Cremesheen Lipglass - Boy Bait by 1017
UPDATE: ZOMG! It also looks fabulous with my summer bronze/peachy/coral look (In the winter I wear MAC Dame & cooler toned shadows. In the summer I wear Tarte Tipsy, MAC Royal Sunset, BB Beach Bronze.) This gloss literally works year round. I don't really see the need for spending money on higher end lipglosses, but Boy Bait is the exception. I will never be with out this. And I have never found anything as perfect as this shade.
ORIGINAL POST: I have a love /hate relationship with Boy Bait. I love everything about it but the price & that it should be dupeable, but isn't IMO. While price bothers me less with the other Cremeglasses as I only use the ones I have seasonally. But Boy Bait I can slap on any time, any place, any reason. It looks good by itself or on top of any other shade...I could really fly through these...so that is where the hate comes in. I could wear this as much as you would use lip balm...thus, I wish it were less expensive. Oh, I have tried to find "dupes", but no luck. IMO, nothing beats the texture of the Cremeglasses, they are my favorite lip glosses. As for color, I have swatched Boy Bait next to Revlon's Eggnog, Revlon's Peach Petal, Nude Lustre, Flower's What a Dai-sy & Baby's Breath & a few others. Boy Bait has that touch of pink, neutrality, sophistication, yet still beige/MLBB that I need. On me, Boy Bait is as perfect & hard to match as MAC's Innocence Beware (everything similar was just too peach/beige/or icy). Yes, it is a "barely there" shade, but dang it...I love it so much and could use it ALL THE TIME. I am NW20, almost black hair, brown eyes, rosey lips.
