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.

Kind of funny, because I wore this look to my parents’ house on Saturday, and my mom described it was, “Bitchy.” As in, I looked mean, like a bitch. Coming from my mom, it was about the last thing I thought she said. (She didn’t mean it badly, and I didn’t take offense!)

I used Mega-Rich pigment (LE) on lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lid, Expensive Pink eyeshadow on middle of lid, Antiqued eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Goldmine eyeshadow above crease, Say Yeah eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Goldmine eyeshadow on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Ambering Rose blush on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer to highlight. I had Wild ‘Bout You lipstick (LE) with Real Desire lipglass (LE) and Venetian lustreglass on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Say Yeah = Gleam; Wild ‘Bout You = Dark Side; Real Desire =Desire
