MAC Such a Sweetheart Huggable Glass ($20.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense bright watermelon.” It’s a bright, medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and a light-medium consistency, which looked unimpressive applied as it was quite streaky! The gloss wore well for five hours, and it was lightly hydrating, but the color pulled into lip lines. MAC Beautifully Bare (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Huggable Glass ($20.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “comfortable, creamy” formula that “wears for hours” and has “long-term hydration” with a “comfortable hug of colour.” It’s a new, limited edition formula with cream-based colors with a high-shine that tend to be semi-sheer to semi-opaque. The consistency is light-medium in weight and thickness, and it is creamy when initially applied but gets a little tackier and less emollient after a half hour. It is a moderately tacky gloss, and it holds on fairly well–three to six hours–with noticeable shine and some color still visible even after a meal. They’re slightly hydrating overall, and they have a vanilla-scent but no discernible taste. Their biggest downside is that many of the colors apply unevenly and settle into lip lines, and it’s such a huge downside, unfortunately!

This has nothing to do with the actual glosses, but your skin looks flawless! Both Chanel Jersey and Laura Mercier Matte Radiance have been on my mental wishlist for over a year, and just that last full-faced picture of you looking so stunning and healthy I think will be enough to force me to go and get them both.

These are definitely my favorites of the line! Most of the rest are so lacking in pigmentation that they’d be a waste of time for me, since I have more pigmented lips. I love these shades, especially Never Say Never and Mega Hug!

Never Say Never is sooo luscious and plush looking, and has wonderful pigmentation! This one calls to me, as does Mega Hug. Although, for the Mega Hug shade, I already know that I prefer the UD Vice shade more.

I adore the regular Huggable lipsticks (and was so happy that they’d been made permanent) so I am really interested in trying these glosses. I’m not much of a gloss person – about the only gloss I really like is Clarins Gloss Prodige and these seem like they might be similar so I’m looking forward to trying one or two (probably Mega Hug to start with).
