My experience with MAC Illicit Lipglass

I am NC 42 and this shade completely washes  me out if used alone.I have a similar shade MAC flesh lipglass from MAC mickey contractor collection which I bought when SA completely transformed my look by applying it on hot pink lipstick.Problem with MAC illiccit lipglass is that its too white and has very very fine white shimmer in it which are not visible  when I layer it on my lips.

It gets applied evenly but  settle into fine lines which makes me look ghastly.I then used this lipglass the way MAC SA did on me that is   layering it on a dark shade lipstick.Trust me when you layer these kind of shades on any hot pink shade it completely transform the overall look of the lipstick .

  • Fragrance – It has MAC trademark vanilla fragrance which we find in most of their lipstick and in lipglosses.
  • Staying power – It’s about maximum of two hours .
  • Texture – It’s thick in consistency and moisturizing  enough .

I used it on top of MAC Stylishly yours something new lipstick  .It comepletely tone downs the colour and this way doesn’t settle into fine lines as well.

 Recommendation – If you are looking for a nude shade then it certainly not a good colour to buy but its good to have if you are looking for a lipgloss which helps in toning down your lipstick.Kind of tranformation this shade gives can not be achieved by any lipgloss as such.

One thing which I will surely recommend from this collection is MAC off shoot lipstick.It has become my HG now 🙂


  • Overall – 3/5
  • Price Vs Quality – 3/5
  • Packaging-4/5
  • Shade -2/5
