MAC Pink Lemonade Lipglass

MAC Lipglass in Pink Lemonade

The other day when I wrote about my purchases from MAC's Heavenly Creature collection, I forgot to mention that I'd also picked up a lip product from the permanent line.

MAC's Lipglass in Pink Lemonade.

I've been reading good things about this shade for years, and given my fondness for any and all coral or peach lip products, I don't know why I didn't get off my butt and buy it sooner.

It is gorgeous.

MAC describes it as a flamingo pink, which is pretty accurate. It is a bright, mid-tone pink shade. However, I think there are definite peachy undertones so in my mind, it's a coral-y kind of color - in other words, right up my alley.

It's really a perfect color for summer, but I can see myself wearing throughout the year just because it's super pretty.

Now, MAC's lipglass formula is somewhat sticky but I don't really mind too much because I know that stickiness usually means a gloss has better staying power. That's definitely true of this beauty - I can get about three hours of wear out of it if I'm not eating, which is pretty damn good in my book.

And it's got that lovely vanilla scent that all MAC lip products have.

All in all, a great addition to my lip gloss stash.

What's your current favorite lip gloss?


  1. I've read so many good things about this product as well! I've been contemplating getting it because I don't know if I can get past the stickiness. Do you prefer it on it's own or over a lipstick?

    ps. I just found your blog yesterday! I LOVE IT :) I think it's feeding my makeup buying addiction even more :p

  2. Personally, I like it on its own - partly because it's such a lovely opaque color and can stand on its own, but also because it is somewhat sticky and sometimes layered over a lipstick, it can be a little too much on the lips. If you can get past the stickiness, though, the shade is just gorgeous.

    And I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying the blog! I swear, I could talk about makeup forever... I bet my family and friends would tell you I already do. :P

  3. Hi, do you think that it gonna be nice on me (dark blonde, green eyes) thanks!! :)

    1. I think it would beautiful with dark blonde hair and green eyes. While it's a bright pinky-peach, it isn't so bright that it overpowers - I am super fair, have blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair (right now anyway... need to get my dye job freshened ASAP!) and I love the way it looks on me. I definitely recommend it. :)
