My $0.02:

Pigmentation & Color (Plus Swatches! :D):
The color is described as a creamy soft pink with white and rainbow pearl on the website, which I felt was rather accurate. There’s a mixture of delicate gold and silver shimmers which make this lipglass super pretty!! Pigmentation wise – this lipglass is quite sheer. On my pigmented lips the base color cannot be seen at all – only the shimmers are visible.

The Applicator & Packaging:

As I have mentioned before, I love sponge tipped applicators because of the great control they offer! :D



This lipglass comes in a usual clear vial with a black cap – except that this one has a Fafi sticker quite clumsily stuck on the cap (Major Gripe!!)! it makes the lipglass look so cheap! :( mine is brand new and already some bubbling has happened! Hmph!!!



Texture & Taste:
As with all MAC Lipglass, this applies on smoothly! :) No nasty plasticky taste with this one, which is a huge plus!

Time Test:
Slightly shorter than the other MAC Lipglasses - this baby lasted only about 2-3 hours on my lips!

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM60 / US$14 for a 4.8 g 0.18 oz tube – the same price as the usual (permanent) lipglasses. This is LE though, so grab one while you can! Available at all MAC counters / Pro Stores / Maccosmetics.com

Usage:
This lipglass is extremely versatile!! I can use it on its own, or paired over lippie for the extra bling and shine :) this lipglass will not fail to perform!


In a Nutshell:

A versatile lipglass that goes with everything!

Likes: Universally flattering, fool-proof sponge applicator
Gripes: The bad packaging
Repurchase: In a heartbeat!

Rating:
4.5 Stars ! Near HG Stuff!!
