Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatches of the MAC Lustreglass Sheer-Shine Lipstick in the shade Syrup.
MAC Syrup had its moment about 10 years ago and I’ve had it before, actually, it’s one of the few lipsticks I’ve completely finished up. It was the only thing I wore in high school I’m not even joking.
As I’ve said in my other review, this formula got reformulated and sadly this shade looks a bit different than what I remember. It’s more red-plum and less nude. Old Syrup was a “your lips but better” shade, while this one is a bit more noticeable.
You can buy it here for 22$
This shade is a Blue pink.
The packaging is the exact same as every MAC Lipstick but it is shiny, I assume because the lipstick itself it’s shiny. As always, the shade’s name is written on the bottom in the usual MAC style.
It also has MAC imprinted on which their lipsticks usually don’t have and it makes the product super luxurious.
The scent is the classic vanilla one, one of my favourite but I feel like it’s more muted.
It’s very creamy and smooth, it’s not patchy and it doesn’t settle into fine lines.
On the website they say is a raspberry seed and organic extra-virgin olive oil-infused formula so it provides all-day moisture in a shiny finish. I definitely agree with the claims, it’s very comfortable to wear and not drying.
As I said, the shade is not what it used to be but it’s still gorgeous. The lustre formula melts on your lips and looks divine
Since it is so creamy it is not the most long lasting lipstick but it’s quite easy to reapply even without a mirror. I’d say it lasted on me about 2 hours.

I already knew I loved these lipsticks, but sadly this shade is not what it used to be, I still think it’s pretty but old Syrup was better. I like the effect, it feels beautiful on the lips. I love the packaging and honestly, there is not much to say, if you are looking for a darker nude, this will definitely work for you.
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.
