Girl About Town
MAC Girl About Town Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia pink with fine violet and white pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, while the texture covered the lips with even, smooth color with almost no visible settling into my lip lines. The high-shine finish gave the illusion of plumper, fuller, and smoother lips, too. The gloss stayed on well for six hours and was lightly hydrating.
The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.
