One of the things I love about America is how much cheaper higher end brands are. What’s even better is that there are outlets selling brands under the Estée Lauder company even more cheaply. I’ve seen the Cosmetics Company at the UK outlet Cheshire Oaks but it was never that much cheaper for products than what you can find online. I picked up this particular Mac Pro Longwear Lipglass in Show Me! from there and love it!
I’ve been after a fairly natural lipgloss for a while so when I found this gem, I was pretty chuffed. It’s has a few specks of shimmer in it but they can’t really be seen when it’s worn. It’s a natural dark pink/brown that’s really toned down even though it looks fairly pink in the bottle. I actually bought it for about $12 which works out at around £7.50.
It has the usual MAC scent that is in all of their lip products and isn’t very sticky at all. After testing it out whilst in one of the Disney Parks, it pretty much didn’t shift until I hard something to eat about five hours later. It claims to last about seven and I think if I was drinking so much and in the Florida humidity, it would definitely last the extra hour. I also found that the formula stayed the same and didn’t separate or do anything strange as some lip glosses can do.
I’ll be getting some more beauty posts out over the next few weeks. If you’d like me to look into any other brands, especially ones that you can’t really get in the UK, let me know and I shall do my best! Also, has anyone ever tried any of the lipglosses from Mac? Any recommendations?
