MAC Alluring Aquatics collection launched in India last week and trust me everyone is saying “ it is selling like hot cakes “ ; on the contrary all stores have just 1 or 2 piece of each product so it is likely to finish quickly . I picked just two pieces from the collection as these days I have given up on MAC LE products , one of them is this beautiful sheer gloss and here I am with review of the same . There are total 10 lip products in this Collection which looks very alluring true to its name.
Size – 4.5 ml, Price – 1350 /- INR (Limited edition packaging), Available at MAC stores across India
My experience with MAC Clear Water Lipglass :
Shade – CLEAR WATER is described as sheer nude with multidimensional pearl; it looks almost like a clear gloss but there is just hint of beige tones it and has overly loaded white, cool pink and silver shimmer to it. It looks little dull in tube but surprisingly beautiful on its own when I used two layers.
Texture and staying power – It is not overly sticky gloss and as it’s fairly new it feels more gel like and little runny for a typical gloss but still it doesn’t bleed or settle in fine lines . On its own it managed to stay some 3 plus hrs and my lips were looking wet and juicy , when paired with a pink lipstick it was equally beautiful adding life to my lips .
Pigmentation – It is nicely pigmented gloss even if the base colour is sheer, I have used two coats for the first picture but to give you better idea in second picture, I have paired it with MAC BAD GIRL RIRI Lipstick .
Packaging – What can I say about the ALLURING PACKAGING? It is stunning in every possible way and that’s why the name.
What I like about MAC Clear Water Lip glass:
- I absolutely love the LE packaging.
I love the shiny shimmery gloss; surprisingly it is so unique on its own and pairs well with any other shade.
- The texture is not overly sticky and doesn’t settle in fine lines or bleed.
- The doe foot applicator is great for even application.
- I love the classic vanilla scent of MAC.
What I don’t like about MAC Clear Water Lip glass :
- The price is little too steep.
Ratings – 4.5/5
Recommendations : I am so in love with gloss itself , it makes my lips look so lush and shiny , but for swatches here I have paired it with MAC BAD GIRL RIRI Lipstick ; applied lipstick “on top” , you can see how shiny the multi dimensional that lipstick is looking . I have a love hate relationship with MAC Lip glass , I do pick LE shades but not every shade impress me , this I picked out of curiosity and as I wanted a shimmer overload gloss like BOBBI BROWN HIGH SHIMMER GLOSS , so I thought let me give this a try and I have a winner with me .
