MAC Fashion Flower Lipgelee
MAC Fashion Flower: Lipgelees
The collection features three shades of Lipgelee (each $14.50 for 0.10 oz.) — Budding Beauty (pale coral with pearl pigment), Fashion Flower (pale pink with pearl pigment), and Now in Season (pale yellow with pearl pigment).
- Budding Beauty is a coral melon with pink and gold shimmer. It has more of a shimmery finish than the glittery texture of Fashion Flower and Now in Season. When applied, it has a very milky melon look–semi-sheer for sure, though. Love Nectar lustreglass seems like the closest permanent dupe.
- Fashion Flower is a pink-tinged gloss with lots of pink and silver glitter. It’s a lot like the previous launches of Lipgelees (Lillyland, Cham-Pale) — super glittery, little color, lots of sparkle. I’d say it’s most like Luxure, but applied, Fashion Flower pulls pinker.
- Now in Season is a pale yellow gold with multicolored shimmer of teal, gold, and silver. This felt so sticky, which is uncharacteristic of lipgelees. When worn, it doesn’t deliver much color, just lots of shimmer/glitter. It’s surprisingly similar to Bubble Lounge when worn, since the color base doesn’t show up.
my thoughts on the formula: MAC Lipgelees are moisturizing, easy to apply, and last three to four hours on me. They are a thicker formula, more like a gel, and come in squeeze tubes. They have a non-sticky texture, are vanilla-scented, and a sheer formula, but these are noticeably sticky. There is some glitter migration (maybe four or five flecks), but it didn’t seem like rapid migration nor did it stray into the far reaches of my face or hair or somehow wander to my feet. I have always loved that the Lipgelees come with 0.5 oz. of product–nearly double even large-sized glosses. After they wear away, they can sometimes feel gritty, because of the abundance of glitter.
