Mac released three lip gelees recently as part of the Fashionflower Collection. I adore Lip Gelees. They are mostly sheer and glossy and some are super sparkly. This collection contains lots of sparkle, especially in two of the glosses and the third has sparkle but it is less noticible. Lip Gelee’s are in long squeeze tubes with an angled applicator at the bottom so that you can control how much you wish to squeeze out. They retail in the US for $14.50.
They aren’t particularly sticky glosses but are wet and glossy without the stick. They feel a little more like a petroleum jelly than a traditional Mac Lipglass. The wear time is exceptional. Here’s a closeup of, from left to right, Budding Beauty, Fashionflower, and Now in Season.
The order is the same for the gloss swatches on my hand. It should be noted that I put enough in the hand blobs to do my whole lips. A heavy swatch shows you more of the color, but when you apply these, they will be far more sheer, especially Budding Beauty.
Budding Beauty is a very sheer peach with golden peach sparkles. It looks very sheer on me and just adds a tiny bit of shimmer. The best picture I have is a blurry photo to show the shimmer.
Fashionflower has a light lavender base with silver and pinky sparkles. This one is high on shimmer and adds a little bit of silvery lavendar to my lips. It’s not a full on thick silver like the heavy swatch on my hand would indicate.
Lastly, I have Now In Season, a lightly golden sheer gloss filled with gold and teal sparkles. On my lips, it gives somewhat of a nude look with plenty of shimmer.
