TGIF folks! I hope you are at the end of your work-week and ready for the weekend and some MAC Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolour swatches!
On this Friday afternoon I have six of the fourteen soon-to-be-released MAC Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolour shades. They describe these as “holographic lip gloss packed with iridescent pearls” but they really aren’t holographic, that’s just more marketing hype that so many makeup companies use nowadays. They are either iridescent, duochrome or metallic though, and have a really nice feel.
The wand is a soft, flat double-sided one that applies a nice amount of color per swipe.
Broken Halo is a light silvery grey with iridescent pink pearl
Twinkle Twink is a vivid coral with gold pearl.
Electric Rainbow is a opalescent pink duochrome with gold pearl.
Peace, Love, Unity, Respect is a emerald green with iridescent pearl.
Gilded Age is a bronze gold metallic.
Space Bubble is a blackberry red with red iridescent shimmer.
These have the classic vanilla lip scent that we all know and love, but they also seem to have a very light tingly feeling to them as well. They are not sticky at all (yay) and are very nicely pigmented. They have a really nice smooth texture so they kind of glide onto the lips really easily and feel very comfortable. These are definitely not sheer but you can build them up a bit also. My personal favorites are Broken Halo and Electric Rainbow. I love Peace, Love, Unity, Respect also, but don’t think I have the gonads to wear it in public, LOL!
MAC Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolour will be available November 9th on their site and they are $21.00 each.
Do you want to try any of these colors out?
