My Take on Mac Cremesheen Lipglass Star Quality:
Packaging: This lipglass comes in usual MAC plastic kind packaging with a doe-foot applicator. Shade name, finish type alongwith ingredient list is mentioned in the outer carton.
Shade: Star Quality is a bright coral pink shade with orangish undertones. Its a gorgeous warm shade with no shimmer. Color payoff is good but it looks more pink on my lips and less orange than it does in the tube.( I have pigmented lips).
Pigmentation & Coverage: This shade is nicely pigmented and is quite buildable.It has semi-opaque color coverage, I have pigmented lips but the shade showed up nicely on me. It does not get streaky and applies evenly on my lips, so application is quite smooth.
Texture & Finish: Formula wise its an absolute winner for me. Its has lovely creamy texture like that of a cremesheen lipstick and glossiness of a lipglass. Texture wise its very lightweight and extremely comfortable to wear. It feels very light on my lips. This formula is very hydrating for my lips, it keeps my lips healthy looking and moist for a long time.It relieved my chapped lips to a great extent too.
Staying Power: I usually get three to four hours on average of staying power with star quality cremesheen lipglass. You can get longer wear time when you layer this over Prep + Prime Lip and a liner and lipstick. I am quite satisfied with its performance and overall feel.

My Overall Recommendation:
I would highly recommend everyone to try Star quality and Star galaxy from MAC’s A Fantasy of Flowers collection. Cremesheen lipglass feels very hydrating, lightweight, non sticky and is equally pigmented with an average of 3 hours of staying power. The major downside is its quantity which is very very less and its available at 1500 bucks in India. Abroad its available at 20 dollars However, if it pinches your pocket give it a pass. Formulawise its an absolute winner for me.
