Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the MAC Pretty Shiny Things Lipglass in the shade Ice Orchid from the holiday collection.
I kind of fell in love with this collection, Julia and I talked about the other pieces in this post NEW | MAC Shine Pretty Little Things Collection and the lip products were what caught my attention, guarantee I got the most neutral shades but I know myself and I know I’d use them to death.
This collection has the prettiest mirrored packaging, it’s super eye-catching but very chic.
You can get it here for 18,50$
On the website, the shade is described as Midtone Cool Pink.
The packaging is a thick and relatively small tube in a hard plastic material with a mirrored cup. The shade name is written on the bottom in the usual MAC style.
It comes in a really pretty silvery box with fuchsia details which I really like.
The doe foot applicator is quite small and sharp so it’s very easy and precise to use: it picks up just the right amount of product and you can colour your entire lips with one dip.
The scent is not the same as the other lipglass, finally because I hated it, it’s definitely sweet maybe a bit fake.
If you tried MAC lipgloss you would know that they are very sticky and this one is no exception, the formula is very dense and thick but super shiny.
Lipglass is seriously the perfect name, your lips will be like glass.
Since it is so sticky it is a very long lasting product I’d say about 4 hours.

I like this gloss, I like the effect and the colour, it is really easy to apply and I don’t really mind the stickiness. If you are looking for a long lasting, high shine product and you are ok with sticky glosses, I would totally recommend it to you. I can see myself wearing this a lot.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
