from all the colors in the holiday 2009 set, this was my 2nd fav. I love the nude colors. Love the scent as well vanilla

To me, Poetic License is the equivalent of a less frosty, shimmerless Prr. I love this gloss as an alternative to a nude lip. It is sticky, as most MAC lipglasses are, but it is beautiful, so I overlook the sticky factor. It has a doe foot applicator, which is fine if you are applying a single coat over bare lips, but a brush would be nice if you wanted to use this to amplify a cool nude such as Myth. Definitely one of MAC's must have glosses.

This is a great taupe/pink on my pigmented lips. Love the shine (without sparkly particles) the formula gives me and the applicator wand. Just brush it on and do not rub your lips around with this on. The color just stays on for hours if you apply and treat it right.

I like this color for a conservative day look. It does look great over other lipsticks which gives it some versatility but I wouldn't wear this for a night look.

Beautiful lipgloss, very pigmented. I just hate it when my long hair sticks to it.

This is a really nice nude lipgloss. It has no shimmer, sparkle, sheen, etc. Its just a flat cream nude. It has a pinky tinge to it which it quite nice. This is a good lipgloss to just slick on and go or to pair with a dramatic smoky eye.

Really cute nude shade! It has no shimmer or sparkle to it, it is simple a matte nude-coral-ish shade. More on the nude side than coral clearly. Really pretty shade for those who want something nude but a bit different than their usual shade of nude! Really flattering, yet I am a fan of the shimmery colors most of the time!

I also recv'd this in the 2009 Holiday Collection and, contrary to the previous reviewer, I found this one to be my favorite! This is the *perfect* nude for me- even better than my #1 Lipglass, C-thru! I wish this shade was not LE, though! This has a bit of peachy-pink to it that blends perfectly with my skintone (NW20). If MAC ever repromotes Poetic License, I will definitely repurchase!

This lipglass makes my lips look super full! It looks like I have a plumping gloss on, but without that nasty bee sting. As always, it has MAC's trademark vanilla cake batter scent which is fabulous. I wore this over a flesh toned lipliner all over my lips today and it is truly beautiful. It is a milky peachy nude color and looks fantastic with the dramatic eyes I wore today.

I'll be honest--I bought this lip glasses solely for the name *gasp* LOL, I'm an aspiring writer/poet, so I got a bit excited when I saw this one was called Poetic License. I'm really not a fan of the product itself, goes on a pale, milky pink that makes me look washed out (i.e., dead). This lip glass tends to settle in all the fine lines of my lips too :( This will teach me to buy things based on their names alone! LOL
