MAC Lipglass Lychee Luxe Swatches, Review

MAC Lychee Luxe and Pink Lemonade were the first ever lipglosses I had ever.
But like a lot of you remember me saying (and making enough fun of me to last a lifetime), I thought it was no better than streetwear (which my friend had a tube of) and I loved. it was this hot pink in tube, but translucent in tube. :| with multicolor glitter.

That mug was a gift from my friends from office. If you'll are reading this, I'm thinking of you all and love you! and You're all awesome!:*

It was long back. I dont know what happened to those tubes. :'(
And now, when I look at the MAC Lipglasses, I just want these two first. :|
MAC Hyderabad  was out of stock of the Lychee Lipglass since I can remember. Bah. They still dont have Pink Lemonade. ( For all those who care, I accept late birthday gifts.. so.. (No, I'm not over my birthday yet.. Oh and this reminds me, I had cheesecake for my birthday.. which was OUT of the world!!! :D))

Anyway, I finally laid my hands on this tube and I haven't been happier about this! :) I think I am back to being a lipgloss person after being a lipstick person for like 3 months, :|

Can you see the pretty golden shimmer?

Price Rs 950 (I think)

MAC describes their Lipglasses as

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, Tinted Lipglass is 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. Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application.

MAC describes Lychee Luxe Lipglass as Pinky-Coral with golden shimmer.

So Coming back to Lychee Luxe, Its a beautiful, beautiful coral with golden shimmer. It is very pigmented and imparts enough colour with one swipe. But it can be built up to the exact same colour of the tube. :)

It is something that makes you look effortlessly glam instantly. Its a versatile colour,.. and I intend to have more of this! My mum loves this too.. and she was the one who introduced me to the shade.. It  is not one of those colours that only teens or someone in their early 20s are expected to wear. (Yes, there is an age limit apparently..)
This brings a beautiful flush to anyones face! I have seen it on 5 people minimum (in person)
Now that I have declared my love for it, lets get to the good and the bad.

The Good

  • Its a beautiful colour. Universally flattering, in my opinion.
  • I actually like the sticky-ness of MAC lipglasses, many hate it though. The sticky-ness makes it last on my lips for  a while.
  • It lasts for some3-4 hours on my lips easily then it fades.. But one time, I had just one swipe of it on me and I slept with it (shoot me) and I woke up with glossy lips! Apparently, I don't drool or talk in my sleep!:D
  • I like the doe tip applicator for glosses, which this has. I hate brushes. :|
  • Vanilla flavour! yum.
  • Keeps my lips moisturized.
  • What else? I dunno. :|

The Bad-
  • As you can see in the picture above, it settles into the lines. :|
  •  I wish we got this for around Rs 600 or less. :P but when just about every brand is charging so much, I feel MAC deserves it.. but the Indian govt cant kill us with tax. :|
