My MAC lipglosses - Review & Challenge

 My MAC lipgloss collection is fairly small and since I hardly use them I decided to do a review and weekly challenge with them before taking them back-2-MAC.

What's the challenge?
  • Use MAC lipgloss of choice every day for the upcoming week
Now on to the reviews!


Underage is  probably one of the most popular MAC lipglasses. It's a nude milky pink shade that has very subtle shimmer to it that disappears once the product is on your lips. It has the distinct Vanilla scent that all MAC lip products have. The consistency is thick and gooey. It's quite sticky. Like all MAC lipglasses, I find this product to be too sticky for my liking and not moisturizing enough. The consistency will emphasize dry skin and you must make sure to have well moisturized lips when using this product. The colour probably works best for lighter skintones. I find that it washes my NC25/30 skin out.

Will I repurchase? No.

Lychee Luxe:
Lychee Luxe is also a lipglass. It's a gorgeous corally shade that has some sparkle to it. I bought it on a whim when I couldn't get my hands on Queen Bee. Like Underage it is gooey, sticky and not moisturizing. The smell is lovely and if the consistency of this lipglass was better I would quite like it. The shade will probably suit warmer and medium to dark skin tones best.

Venetian is a lovely Lustreglass. It's less pigmented than lipglasses, but has a lovely consistency. It's smooth, doesn't emphasize any dryness and is not sticky. It's a deep red and almost has a slight cool undertone to it and subtle red shimmers. It's also got the yummy Vanilla scent to it. I love wearing this with black eyeliner and tons of Mascara.

Will I repurchase? Probably not. (I don't get much use out of it).

Overall, I must say that I am not a fan of lipglasses and regret buying them. I don't like the quality and the price tag that comes along with it. There are much better alternatives out there that are cheaper, such as Revlon's lip glosses. I may check out creamsheens and other lustreglasses once I use up some of my products.

What do you think of MAC lipglosses? Are they worth the hype?



  1. I've never really tried Mac lip glosses apart from their clear lip glass, but because of this post I might just!

  2. If you do, try the cream sheen or lustre glasses.

    The lip glasses are way too sticky, imo.

  3. I love the lip glosses by M.A.C. the pink poodle will always be my favorite! I am a new follower, you have a great blog.
