Cut Loose is a really light white gold–it’s more like a warm white that’s gold-tinted and has gold shimmer. It settles into lip lines a lot, and it does not apply as evenly as it needs to look good alone. This is the kind of gloss that would work better over something else, because alone it just doesn’t cooperate. MAC Ethereal is sheerer, not as white. MAC A Quiet Roar is yellower. MAC Almondine is just slightly warmer.
