MAC Cultured Lipglass Review & Swatches


MAC Cultured Lipglass


I had a nice mini holiday last week and now am feeling so lazy and hardly in a mood to write or take pictures; been lazy for quite a while. I had mentioned that you will see a hell lot of lip glass reviews but as am including other reviews as well it may take time. I am here with another gorgeous permanent line gloss from MAC Cosmetics – Cultured.

My experience with MAC Cultured Lipglass :

Shade – Cultured is described as Opalescent mauve pink, it is slightly milky cool toned mauve pink shade with super fine golden shimmer to it. I am afraid of milky gloss but this one is surprisingly beautiful with purple and pink lipsticks and looks best when worn on top.

Texture and staying power – It is not gel like but more milky and this is one thing I don’t like in gloss but this being a good layering gloss I love this ; an acceptation for me . I get 3 plus hrs of wear with this when worn alone, with lipstick underneath it stays good for another hr or two.

Pigmentation – It is semi opaque gloss and needs a little layering; not much just two swipes are enough. I find this shade more appealing with lip pencil or lipstick underneath as shown in pictures below. The gloss on its own is little pale for my NC 40 skin tone.

What I like about MAC Cultured Lip Glass:

  • I love the easy to wear subtle mauve pink shimmery shade – more on top though .
  • The gloss stays good for hrs and makes my lips looks polished and shiny.
  • The doe foot applicator is good for even application.
  • The classic vanilla fragrance.
  • It doesn’t settle in fine lines nor does it bleed.

What I don’t like MAC Cultured Lip Glass:

  • As I always mention the stickiness and the new price tag.

Ratings – 4 / 5

Recommendations – If you love light shimmery gloss then this will definitely impress you, it is good on its own (little too light but still opaque) and looks even more wonderful with any lipstick or liner underneath.
