MAC Lipgelees ($14.50 for 0.50 oz.) see four new and limited edition varieties with the Cham-Pale collection: Bubble Lounge (sparkly pink peach), Luxure (off-white with pink pearl), Sin-tillation (sparkly pale icy pink), and Straight to the Head (sparkly bronze brown).
Lipgelees are thicker, gel-like glosses that come in squeeze tubes. They are non-sticky and more moisturizing than your average gloss. They still have MAC’s signature vanilla scent, but the formula is unlike their other lip glosses. While the original Lipgelees have tended to be less shimmery and “juicy,” these along with the shades from Lillyland are chocked full of shimmer.
These look better in real life than photographed, because they have so much shimmer/glitter and shine, photographs often show the particles individually rather than the smooth, more cohesive look they sport in person. I liked these when I looked in the mirror, but I think they look rather lackluster in photos (even in just swatches). They are incredibly shimmery, though, and if you aren’t big on shimmer, I would skip these. While I didn’t experience glitter migration to my hair, there were a few stray glitter particles near my lips after three or four hours (which is when it fades).
I like them, but the colors are not my personal style, so I’m not personally enthused over the shade selection–the product itself is moisturizing, easy to apply, and lasts three to four hours on me. There is some glitter migration (maybe four or five flecks), but it didn’t seem like rapid migration nor did it stray into the far reaches of my face or hair or somehow wander to my feet. I have always loved that the Lipgelees come with 0.5 oz. of product–nearly double even large-sized glosses.
