The Sultry Season: MAC Explicit Lipglass
MAC Explicit Lipglass ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a sheer taupe-brown kind of lipgloss. It’s gray, it’s taupe, it’s the grayest mauve. I think Explicit is such an interesting shade, and it works really well layered over darker, vampier shades for some shimmer and glossiness while not reducing the boldness of the lipstick itself. Worn alone, it darkens my natural lip color just a touch while adding a ton of taupe and light brown shimmer on lips while the base color is rather sheer. Like all MAC lipglasses, it is one of the stickier glosses on the market and has a vanilla scent.
Is this the right brown for you? Would you wear it?
