MAC Glace Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm
MAC Glace Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy pale baby blue.” In the tube, it’s a cloudy, pale blue with iridescent pink-copper shimmer. It’s actually very, very similar to MAC Chillin’, except Chillin‘ is a bit milkier. MAC Ethereal is more shimmery.
On lips, it cancels out some of my natural lip color and gives it a cooler cast while adding a touch of shimmer and general milkiness. It’s not like you’re wearing a bright blue gloss, though (which may have been what you were wanting or may have been what was keeping you away!). The formula is only supposed to give a tint of color along with a high shine, while being incredibly moisturizing. It’s so-so in the hydration department–enough that lips feel nourished while worn, but the formula doesn’t impart any long-lasting hydration. The color payoff is sheer but gives lips a milky appearance while allowing the natural lip color to come through. Glace wore for three hours, and the texture was just a touch tacky from the start and gradually became tackier as it wore on.
