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.

Pigmentation & Color (Plus Swatches! :D):
The color is described as a creamy neutral yellow pink on the website. I would say that this color description is accurate. It has delicate gold shimmers that are hardly noticable - i didn't even notice them until I saw the pictures taken with Flash. As with all MAC Lipglasses, the shine is incredible! :) This Lipglass is rather pigmented!

Swatch from the Mac Website:

Not accurate at all!!

On my rather pigmented lips:

The Applicator & Packaging:

The applicator is a sponge-tip one for fuss free application. I personally prefer sponge tips because they apply like a dream!! lol! The packaging is simple, a black cap and a clear vial so that you can see how much product you have left :)

Texture & Taste:
It goes on smooth and spreads nicely across your lips. It is kinda sticky, but bearable. Another bonus is that it's not drying at all! Not sure if i'm dreaming or what, but my lips actually felt moisturized and comfortable after applying this! The downside is there's a nasty plasticky taste when just applied, but it disappears after a minute or so, so i guess it's not that bad :D

Time Test:
This baby lasted about 4-5 hours on my lips! One of the best i've tried!

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM60 / US$14 for a 4.8 g 0.18 oz tube, which i think is alright for what it offers. This is LE though, so grab one while you can! Available at all MAC counters / Pro Stores / Maccosmetics.com

I wear this alone most of the time as i'm sooo not a lipstick person. This goes with everything, really! Whether worn with a pair of Smokey Eyes, or to tone down bright lippies, this'll work beautifully! :)

In a Nutshell:

It's my MLBB, absolutely favourite lip gloss and it lasts! :D

Likes: Perfect nude color for my lips, long lasting, fool-proof sponge applicator
Gripes: The initial plasticky taste
Repurchase: In a heartbeat!

5 Stars ! HG Stuff!!
