MAC Gimme That!, Wind Me Up and Ban This! Dare To Wear Review and Swatches
MAC Cosmetics Dare To Wear Collection features 6 new fabulous limited edition lipglasses and 16 daringly bright shades of eye shadow. While I have yet to pick up any eye shadows, I did get three lipglasses. I was able to get Gimme That!, Wind Me Up and Ban This!
Gimme That! is a hot pink with pink pearl. It flashes with a bit of blue and pink pearl. Think of MAC Girl About Town Lipstick or perhaps even MAC Show Orchid Lipstick.
Wind Me Up is medium bronze with pink and orange pearl. If you are a fan of MAC Utterly Posh Dazzleglass, you are sure to like this.
Ban This! is a vibrant purple with blue, purple, pink and white pearl. Needless to say, its got a lot of bling. It's totally one to use for a dramatic look. I think this would look great layered over NYX Sparkling Orchid Lipstick or MAC Violetta Lipstick, both vibrant shades of violet purple that lean a little cool.
They are quite unlike typical lipglass. I must say that it is a wonderful change :) The formula of these three lipglasses is extremely smooth, creamy, slightly sticky and well pigmented. The colors are vibrant and rich. The pearl shimmer is non-gritty and refined. They seem much like a liquid lipstick, rich in color yet glossy and shimmery.
Is there a downside to these? Well yes, the applicator. Its your common doe-foot applicator, which can be a bit difficult to control on the outer edges of my lips. I would've preferred a brush for greater control of the lipglass. I would definitely suggest using a lip liner, apply a bit on the lips and then pressing lips together to blot it out. A lot goes a long way with this formula!
I love these, I just hope MAC will come out with more shades :) Lip swatches and lip combo's are soon to come :)
