Hello Sweeties!

Today I am going to review one of the most beautiful shades of red from Mac. Though it was not released in India, I got his shade from one of my friend. This is a limited edition shade from Mac by Request Spring collection 2014. If any of your friends resides in US, you can ask them to get this one for you. Meanwhile check out my review and pictures.

My Experience with MAC By Request Matte Lipstick in Glam:

Packaging: This is a limited edition lipstick from Mac but it comes in their regular black bullet kind packaging with Mac logo engraved on it. I kind of liked the no fussy black packaging, its classy, elegant and lightweight. The shade name alongwith its finish is mentioned at bottom of the lipstick. The bullet packaging is very sturdy. I really loved to see the complete ingredient list mentioned in the outer carton.

Shade: ‘Glam’ according to Mac Cosmetics is a bold red shade with deep pinkish plum undertones. It has strong cool blue undertones to it.The shade in real is very close to the shade shown in the shade chart at Mac website. This shade is apt for people with cool tones however it does not look garish on warmer skin tones. It is definitely a bold shade but not garish. However, I would prefer to wear it during evening, I would not wear during daytime. It is a must have shade from Mac matte lipstick range.

Texture & Finish: These lipsticks have matte finish with creamy texture. Its texture is so different from regular matte lipsticks from Mac. It was so creamy and glided like butter on my lips. It sets into matte finish within half an hour. It is very comfortable to wear and quite lightweight. I wish all the matte lipsticks from Mac should come with this kind of finish. It does not dry out my lips and keeps it hydrated too. This lipstick does not accentuate my fine lines.

Coverage & Staying Power: Mac matte lipstick in Glam imparts opaque coverage to my pigmented lips with one swipe. I really love it because I can wear it as a lipstick and also as a stain. This lipstick owing to its creamy texture did not bleed on lips at all. The staying power of this lipstick is incredible, it is around 5-6 hours and the stain it leaves behind stays for couple of hours more.
