MAC Clear Lipglass: Review and Photos

I have a thing for glossy lips and I wanted to buy a clear gloss that can be worn over any color to give that gorgeous finish! So I bought the MAC Clear Lipglass lipgloss.



Product Description
"A unique lip gloss that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Clear Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. Clear

Lipglass can be mixed with other products, like Pigments, and can be applied anywhere on the body except for the eye area to create interesting effects."

How to use it
Use it with a lip brush (does not come along with the gloss) or apply directly (like a lip balm) over lip pencil or lipstick.

Price: $ 17.5 for 15 ml / 0.5 US oz in US
          
What I like about MAC Clear Lipglass
  • It does exactly as it claims: Creates a ravishing glass-like finish that would stay unless you eat too much.
  • It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips. I did feel it!
  • You only need a tiny bead of this highly concentrated product to cover the entire lip area and one tube can last for a very very long time. 
  • Fragrance free! Yes I like this aspect..I am not a fan of fruity lip balms/ glosses but I can live with them. But this is what I prefer.
What I don't quite like about MAC Clear Lipglass
  • It's thick and sticky. You can't kiss with with the gloss on :( But I am still okay with it since it stays long probably because of this!
  • I find it a bit difficult to apply directly like a balm, generally too much of it comes out. I wish it came with a applicator.
  • The tube leaked a bit. I thought it was my bad luck. But later I read some reviews on the net and it is a common problem.
Recommendation:
I initially bought it with the thought of wearing it everyday. However, the inconvenience to apply it and the stickiness did not allow that. But I love finish and the shine that it gives to my lips and use it for special occasions. The product is worth a try and its perfect for professional use!

Hey Debleena, May be it stays put becasue its sticky. Its an observation. Did you get it from the US?

I prefer sticky glosses, because they simply last longer on the lips. But I agree, kissing isn't an option when you're wearing such a gloss.
Glosses with a doe foot applicator are so much easier to use, especially when you're carrying them around in your purse. Maybe that's just me, but using a lip brush makes application easier when using lip products that come in a tube, but it's more of a hassle for sure, so I try to avoid buying them.

@anamika: glad you liked it. keep visiting for more :)
@PeachesandBlush: Yup not 1000 but almost 850!!
@Vanity: I answered your question on your blog :) I hope you keep visiting me

@Nivedita and @Tabatha: Yeah I agree, other glosses generally dont stay for long. The stickiness helps there. But its the application that makes it difficult. I have used Maybelline long stay. They are also sticky but stay for almost all day..But I repurchased cos it was easy to apply with the applicator.
And yes, got it from the US.

I'm not familiar with Maybelline long stay, but given the name it should stay put for a long time!

Thank you so much - I'm following back :-)
