MAC Pink Poodle Lipglass Review & Swatch


MAC Pink Poodle Lipglass


This is my first MAC Lip glass which I purchased some 5 years back and trusts me I have all good memories about this shade. I have used / abused this to every possible extent and it is still going strong after so many years. I don’t use this often but whenever I have used this, I fall in love time and again. This may not be the brightest shade on its own but it goes extremely well with bright fuchsia pinks or coral lipsticks and I especially love this to pair it rather wearing alone.

My experience with MAC Pink Poodle Lipglass :

Shade – Pink Poodle is described as Pink Fuchsia with Pinky – Gold Shimmer, it is cool toned bright but not in your face Fuchsia Pink shade with super fine gold and pink shimmer to it . It looks bright in the tube but comes out sheer on lips; still for a gloss it is great.

Texture and Staying power – It has super fine shimmer and layers nicely on my lips without settling in fine lines or bleeding. It does get little thick after a while but you can see in pictures there is no difference; the gloss is looking as fresh as new. I get some 2 plus hrs of wear with this shade when worn alone.

Pigmentation – It is not extremely pigmented gloss if you compare with other hot pink gloss ( I HAVE one for you in coming posts )  but still there is enough pigment to cover any discoloration and it looks wonderful when you layer this over a lipstick like MAC GIRL ABOUT TOWN or SHOW ORCHID .

What I like about MAC Pink Poodle Lip Glass :

  • For very subtle fuchsia pink shiny lips the gloss is good and can be used with ease.
  • I love the shimmer it has; it is fine and adds more life.
  • It doesn’t settle in fine lines nor does it bleed.
  • The doe foot applicator is good for even application.

What I don’t like about MAC Pink Poodle Lip Glass :

  • I wish the staying power could have been better.
  • The pigmentation is on sheer side.
  • The price is too steep.

Ratings – 3.5/5

Recommendations : Although the texture is good and doesn’t settle in fine lines but I wish the staying power on its own should be little more. It is good with lipstick or lip liner underneath but it doesn’t stay too long if I wear this alone. However, if you are looking for a fuchsia Pink gloss which is not bright and have subtle shimmer then this may interest you.
