MAC Artful Lipglass ($22) is one of two limited edition shades of MAC Lipglass that launched with the MAC x Brooke Shields Collection! I dunno if any of the shades that are featured in the MAC Brooke Shields Collection really remind me of her or even make me think it would be something she’d like to wear!
I do think that the MAC Artful Lipglass comes quite close to something Brooke would likely wear as this is a very soft, nude peachy pink which is a shade that I’ve seen her wear often enough. Brooke typically embraces a strong smokey eye for red carpet events and goes with a soft pinkish nude lip! So Artful is a shade that might just make you think “Brooke Shields!” when you see it.
None the less it’s a great nude shade if that’s your thing!
MAC Artful Lipglass is described by MAC as a mid-tone coral. It’s not really coral to me but more of a pinky peach with a hint of shimmer. It’s not really opaque and runs sheer but it builds easily enough for better color pay off. It does fall into my natural lip lines unfortunately so I have to build, build some more, and gently pat with my finger so it looks smooth and even. The color is actually very wearable for me. I thought it would more of a zombie-nude lip but it’s a wearable shade that looks quite nice! If you want give it a smoother finish you might want to apply a little clear gloss on top so it looks less patchy as I couldn’t get it to look good to save my life unless I patted it or applied a little clear gloss on top!

MAC Artful Lipglass Swatches
It comes housed in a lighter gray/taupe-y packaging with Brooke’s autograph gracing the cap in bright orange script. Again, I mentioned it in my other reviews, the packaging is a little uneventful and understated. I didn’t expect major bling but I did expect something a little more elegant for Brooke’s Collection, this is just, mmm, boring?
All in all MAC Artful Lipglass is a nice shade but it has a few quirks. You might want to purchase it for collector’s though but the formula isn’t anything to write home about.
It’s available now at MAC counters everywhere or grab it at Nordstrom.com.
