MAC x Pedro Lourenço Lipglasses
The MAC x Pedro Lourenço collection has two new, limited edition shades of Lipglass. It is specially packaged with a rubberized, soft black cap. Both shades were semi-opaque, and they had a high-shimmer finish that looked almost metallic in person.
MAC Gold Mirror Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral gold.” It’s a medium, brown-ish gold with multi-colored shimmer, though it is dominated by peachy-gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. It is totally loaded with shimmer, though, and that’s really why it is more distinct compared to other gold-shimmered glosses, including the recently released MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00), which is a lot less packed with shimmer. MAC Water Deities (LE, $15.00) is less gold. MAC Pure Sophistication (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
MAC Mirror Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral silver.” It’s a subtly warm-toned, pewter gold with silver and gold shimmer that dominates, but it also includes multi-colored shimmer that adds a rainbow-esque glimmer to it. Again, it is totally jam-packed with shimmer, which gives it a near-metallic finish. The overall result was semi-opaque coverage. It wore well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. I couldn’t think of a dupe for this one.
