6 Must-Have MAC Lustreglasses

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Luminary lustreglass is a sheer, opalescent gloss with flecks of purple and pink shimmer. It’s one of my favorite glosses to wear alone or to change up a lipstick that’s starting to get boring.

Spring Bean lustreglass is a sheer, gold-green gloss that can really alter the way your lipstick looks when you layer it on top.

Venetian lustreglass is a semi-sheer pop of dark pink with a little reddish cast to it. It’s actually an awesome way to start wearing bolder lip colors without committing full-on.

What’s Your Haircare Routine?

Mine ranges from super lazy to moderately involved, but it’s usually somewhere in between.

Typically, I wash my hair every other day with shampoo/conditioner (clarifying shampoo once a week). It takes me about 10-15 minutes to blow dry it, and if I do, I usually make sure to use a thermal protectant spray, volumizing spray, and finish with an anti-frizz or shine spray. On lazy days, I pull it into a ponytail, and I might put on a headband to make it look less boring–especially if I don’t feel washing and try to squeeze in an extra day between washings (and that’s where dry shampoo comes in).

I’d love to know what your daily haircare routine is! Share it with me in the comments! :)
