What is the best shiny lipgloss?
Clear Lipglass is an industry hero. In my 15 years of being a makeup artist, nothing has topped the glass like shine that envelopes a lip like the magic that is this iconic product. It took 4 years of research and development to perfect this formula and it has not changed or been rivaled since its inception.
Instead of the conventional waxes and petroleum the key ingredient is jojoba oil meaning that this is an intense shine that also moisturises. This is THE product that we rely on on the runway to give a statement, eyestopping, otherworldly texture that is like no other, a formula so clear and with such opacity of shine it looks like glass. That is Clear Lipglass.
It is the finishing wow moment, that shrinkwraps and envelopes the surface of the lips, magically dissapearing any uneven texture yet amplifying colour suspending it in a mesmerising bubble to get lost in. You only need a small amount - (think a petit pois) to lend enough shine that lasts for hours but many a runway we have drenched the lips so much that we catch the drips on the models return - so add at your own will for whatever level of showstopping shine you are after!
It comes in a squeezy tube so you will never compromise the clear glass shine when wearing (or even mixing) with other products and now it even comes in a mini! The formula was so popular it of course birthed colour versions of which there are almost 40! The colour payoff from Lipglass is opaque and some have pearlised particles to create a sparkle within that brilliance. Iconic Shades are Prrr, Love Nectar, Lovechild and Spite and of course some exact matches to some other MAC icons like - Spice, Heroine and Ruby Woo
