MAC and Gareth Pugh, as you know, have joined together and created a limited edition collection in really cool packaging.
Aside from the nail lacquers, the other items that stood out to me were the Lipglasses. There are two of them and they looked so amazingly iridescent and cool I picked them up with nary a hesitation.
Now I do love the packaging with these Lipglasses, I have to say. Love the square shape and design on the front. But they are not without their flaws.
As soon as I took Outrage out of the package, it dropped onto the floor and the black plastic inside the tube which attaches the wand to the rest of the gloss snapped so there was no way to close it. No worries, I returned it and bought a replacement. But be careful because they seem more fragile than the regular Lipglass tubes.
The only other thing I didn’t love about them was that the hole that the wand goes into is SO TIGHT that you barely get any product out each time you dip it in. So I felt like I had to go into the gloss 15 times to get it on my lips. Annoying.
Oh also, yeah not too keen on spending $22.00 (0.16 oz) for these just because of the packaging when the regular Lipglass is $14.50 (0.17 oz).
Vacant is a pale pink/lavender with an iridescent pearl look. It’s VERY sheer, but pretty. Would probably look best layered over a pink or purple lipstick.
Outrage is a deep plum purple base with lots of iridescent shimmer. The shimmer you see is mostly blue, green and gold. This one is also very sheer, but showed up more on my lips since the base is darker than Vacant.
I like these but I don’t love them. I liked them better in the packaging. Again. I don’t regret getting Outrage because I think it’s fairly unique to anything else I have, but Vacant is a pretty common color.
Pricing: $22.00 each.
What do you think of Vacant and Outrage? Interesting or are you passing?
