MAC Anthurium Pro Longwear Lipglass ($22.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is described as a “clean bright red.” It’s a vibrant, neutral-to-warm-toned, cherry red with a glossy, creamy finish. Illamasqua Touch (P, $22.00) has shimmer. Milani Red My Lips (12) (P, $5.49) is very similar. Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is a touch warmer. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Revlon Fire (P, $7.49) is warmer. MAC Driven by Love (P, $19.50) is shimmery. MAC Russian Red (P, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Pro Longwear Lipglass formula is supposed to wear for six hours with a shiny finish and rich color. The consistency is quite thick, almost goopy at times, but it wears for awhile–six hours in this case. The texture is about as sticky as Lipglass, but it gets even stickier after a few hours of wear. It’s an easy gloss to catch on your teeth, so beware. This shade applied beautifully with rich, opaque color coverage that didn’t sink into lip lines or bleed/feather outside the natural lip. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time. It has a vanilla scent (same as the rest of MAC’s glosses) and no discernible taste. As a heads up, note that this formula contains 0.06 fl. oz., which is significantly less than most glosses.

this makes your lips so plush !

i don’t currently own a red lipgloss since i’m more of a lipstick girl , but this looks amazing .

also , the packaging is really tempting me !

It’s a very fun color to wear, and long-wearing, but you have to be able to handle the thickness/stickiness level, lol!

I never tried the pro longwear formula, according to your description it’s not much different than the lipglass. Reds just look horrible on me, but it looks gorgeous on you!

This looks gorgeous! I love how ridiculously shiny it is! But it’s just a shame that MAC didn’t try and do anything really special with this collection – I think they could have done so much more, and made it a lot more theatrical, but still wearable.

The consistency is actually REALLY thick – it’s a gloss that can look good, but it is very thick and heavy when worn. Just a heads up in case that’s a deal-breaker! 🙂

It’s not the kind of lip gloss color I’d wear, but I do like how glossy it is. I’d probably have red on my teeth and pretty much everything I come near in a matter of seconds though…

It’s a pretty red, no doubt, but for $22, I don’t need it when I’ve got my OCC NSFW. Even the mini will last me longer than this!

You know what’s funny is this is SO opaque and thick, I don’t even think you need the lipstick, lol!

I just LOVE how this looks! I def see MUAs reaching for this for photoshoots since it looks gorgeous!
I don’t see myself wearing this because I’m not the most careful person so it would ger everywhere lol… and somehow my hair aaaalways gets it’s way to my lips so I very rarely wear gloss. The lipstick is something I’d pick up if it hits stores in my country though!

Beautiful color, but I’m definitely staying away from this! I’ve had bad experiences where the wind blows my hair onto my lips and then ends up sweeping lip gloss colors onto the rest of my face.

This is beautiful!! I just wish it was a regular lipglass. I tried a Pro Longwear gloss once before and it felt like paste on the lips lol. I don’t usually go for red glossy lips but now you have me itching to find a nice dupe!
