Under the Sheets

MAC Under the Sheets Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light peach with warm undertones and lots of multi-colored pearl. It had medium coverage with a high-gloss finish and enough pearl that it distracted from the color that pulled into my lip lines when vieewed at a normal distance. The gloss was light-medium in weight with a sticky feel, but it was also smooth, moisturizing, and comfortable to wear. On me, it lasted for four hours.

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.

NUDE

MAC NUDE Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium peach with fine gold and pink pearl. It had medium coverage that did not appear streaky when applied but definitely settled into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in weight, and moderately tacky, which helped it last longer (four hours) but is a tackier formula compared to most modern glosses. The formula was comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating over time.

Of the two, I went with NUDE because I figured it wouldn’t be too ridiculously light on my lips. It is still paler than my actual lip color, as is Nicki’s Nude, but it somehow looks great! And I am not one to go much lighter than my own lip color, but this combo is beautiful.

Not confident that I could pull off Underneath The Sheets, though. But I do love the golden shimmer in it!

I really like both of these lip glosses! Shades are super pretty!
Which blush are you wearing on your right cheek?? Its super gorgeous plum shade!

It’s the same on both cheeks… and it is listed on the post 🙂
