Stash Status: M.A.C LipGlasses #LipSwatchWeek

This series is moving along nicely...

M.A.C says: "LIPGLASS - A gloss in a wide colour range that can create a glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high-gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick, it's the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It's pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains jojoba oil to help soften and condition the lips. 

Key Claims and Benefits:
Provides a glass-like shine
Conditions lips
Smoothes lips.

Usuage:
Apply to lips using doe-foot applicator.
Can be worn alone or layered over your favourite M·A·C lip colour
".

My first experience with these glosses was via a kit that M.A.C released a while ago in the A Tartan Tale Collection. I think those lip kits are a great way to try a variety of colours and finishes for a discounted price. While, like so many others, I find them to be a thicker sticky formula I also appreciate their glossy and long wearing properties. I would advise you though not to apply too much since the excess product does pool in weird places and cause that hideous 'webbing' when you're speaking.

The lipglass formula can be a full cream or contain varying degrees of shimmer but they're always high shine. There are currently 28 shades in the permanent range according to the M.A.C US site.

'Electro Lush'

Basically my lip colour in a tube. This isn't a permanent shade and there aren't any similar shades in the permanent range. In short, M.A.C obviously hates me *sob*

'Heroine'

M.A.C describes this shade as a "bright purple". It is one of the most popular shades that M.A.C offers; especially amongst black women. I don't have the lipstick but this plus the corresponding lip liner is bomb. Bomb I tell you.

 'Fab Fun'

This isn't a shade I would have chosen had it not been in the kit but since I've used it, I have come to appreciate how much dimension sparkly lip products add to the lips.

'Girl About Town'

It's a big toss up between this and 'Electro Lush' for my favourite. I'm not the biggest fan of pink lipsticks but there's something about this shade that makes me smile everytime I put it on. M.A.C describes the shade as a "bright blue fuchsia".

'Frozen Dream'

Another shade that shows the multidimensional properties of lipglosses that contain micro shimmer.

'Sassy Lassy'

A fun name and equally fun shade of pink.

 'Viva Glam I'

This is some grown woman ish!

'RiRi Woo'

M.A.C knows how to get us with that limited edition packaging boy. This glorious red is one of the more opaque lipglasses in my collection.

Once upon a time I also owed 'C-Thru' but I wasn't a fan of it at all and it seemed to go bad pretty quickly. M.A.C doesn't put the recommended shelf life of these glosses on their packaging but the industry standard is one year. Y'all already know that I use things until they change their scent or consistency. 

Do you have any of these lipglosses? What's your favourite gloss formula? Let's discuss it in the comments.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.


Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...
