MAC Originals LipglassesWednesday, January 09, 2008
I'm a bit late in posting my reviews of the MAC Originals, so hopefully things aren't sold out by the time you can get to the store! I have to say that this entire collection is full of winners, which is why so many of them were brought out of retirement or tweaked slightly for this collection.
I'm a sucker for Tinted Lip Glasses. They are shiny, moisturizing, long lasting, have virtually no flavor (which means I won't lick it off of my lips in 5 minutes) and their wand makes them easy to apply while on the go! Perhaps the best thing about lip glasses are the colors- they are rich, flattering and it's very difficult to go wrong!
I tried out the Real Desire and Nico Now shades, which you can see in the picture here.
Nico Now is my favorite, it's a pink with a bit of violet and silver in it with subtle shimmer. On my lips this comes across as a few shades darker than my natural lips but with a touch of silver. I find myself reaching for this Lip Glass over and over! It's perfect for a slightly punched up natural lippie.
Real Desire is a fantastic red with a slight berry leaning on my lip. It's lighter than it looks in the tube, and once on the lip it's just amazing! I especially love this color with my Fastlane lipstick, the two are very complimentary to each other, creating amazing depth for an everyday lippie!
