MAC By Request Lipglass Review & Swatches

MAC By Request Lipglass

As you know the MAC By Request Collection includes three shades of limited edition Lipglass that were voted back by fans (on Facebook).

These shades I can definately get on board with. I was a little meh on the eye shadows from the collection but I am feeling the love for the Lipglasses.

Take a look!

Bait, Cult of Cherry, Flash of Flesh

Bait is actually a shade I’ve read and heard so many things about. I want to say it’s in my collection already but I don’t believe it is. It’s a shade I recall hauling for a friend for some reason so it might have been part of the Sweetie Cake Collection but I sincerely think I’m wrong about that. Either way this is a nice nude of light pink with a golden shimmer. I can’t pull the shade off but a little lip stain under it makes it pop for me.

Much to my delight Cult of Cherry is back. This is a true shade of blue based red. I typically can’t wear truer shades of red without looking clown-like but for some reason Cult of Cherry has always been rather easy to pull off even though it lacks the warmth I typically go for in my reds.

And finally my favorite of the bunch, Flash of Flesh which is a pink coppery shade (almost duochrome-like). I like how this reflects a range of shades on lips including light copper, beige, pink, and peach. It’s quite an interesting color with nice depth.

These are all the traditional MAC thicker Lipglass formula which has sticky, tacky feel. I’ve come to terms with the tackiness to be honest as it’s one of the features that allows MAC gloss to wear so long and strong. The tacky feel adheres well to lips and allows five hours, at the least, of wear time.

Although I liked the shades I still left this review scratching my head as I can think any number of shades that are far more special to garner a return (Pink Grapefruit please?).

Were any of the lipglasses your fav shades from way back when?

Any shades you wish came back but didn’t?

    Oo, Flash of Flesh is really pretty. I see lots of gold-pink glosses, but not a lot that have such a range of color tones in them.

      agreed…I like the shades, they are pretty, but kinda boring for this type of launch…?

        I agree! If I were MAC I’d be sneaky and just relaunch a bunch that were along the same color family or the ones that were most popular in terms of sales or just whatever I wanted. I’m MAC bishes!

    Not the most original colors but Bait and Flash of Flesh are too pretty to pass up. I love the shimmer.

    I’m a MAC newbie but I think Flash of Flesh needs to be mine. Duochrome lip gloss? I can’t resist! :)
