Drank the Love Potion

MAC Drank the Love Potion Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with cooler undertones and a smattering of fuchsia and pink pearl throughout a more cream-like finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly but settled into my lip lines enough to be noticeable in person (despite having a very high-shine finish).

The texture was smooth, moderately tacky, and a little thicker, which made it longer-wearing but may feel heavy for those who aren’t familiar with the formula (which is known for its tackiness). It wore well for six hours and felt hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. - $190.00 Per Ounce

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I have found that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

Frantic Romantic

MAC Frantic Romantic Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a darker, orange-peach base with green-to-gold shifting pearl and lots of it. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage (more from shimmer than the base color) that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips, and the consistency was thicker that it helped to soften most of my lip lines.

This is a tackier formula, which can feel heavier for those used to more typical, non-tacky glosses, but this was longer-wearing at five hours and very moisturizing to wear. MAC’s Lipglass has always–in reality–varied a lot in pigmentation from shade to shade, but they describe the formula as pigmented and rarely indicate sheerness by shade, unfortunately.

Mocha Swirl

MAC Mocha Swirl Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium, yellowy peach with warm undertones and lots of finer, champagne shimmer and larger flecks of pink and gold micro-sparkle. It had medium color coverage with a milkier base that was prone to settling into my lip lines noticeably.

The consistency was moderately thick and quite tacky, but it had a high-shine finish that was longer-wearing than most glosses would be. It stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

MAC’s Lipglass has always–in reality–varied a lot in pigmentation from shade to shade, but they describe the formula as pigmented and rarely indicate sheerness by shade, unfortunately.

I could so see myself popping some Frantic Romantic on top of one of my favorite “nude” lipsticks for a bit of extra oomph! Drank The Love Potion is gorgeous, but I have at least one dupe for it.

I must admit loving MAC lip glosses just because of the tackiness. Two of the three went to my WL, There’s one thing I don’t like in any lip gloss and that is milkiness. (Maybe not a word, but I think it is, so now it is!)
But two out of three isn’t bad!
