MAC Clear Water Lipglass, Limited Edition – Alluring Aquatic Summer 2014 Collection

MAC Clear Water Lipglass opener

 

Of the 10 lip products released with the MAC Alluring Aquatic Summer 2014 Collection (5 lipsticks & 5 glosses), the only item that drew my attention was Clear Water Lipglass, a shimmery mermaid-lips kind of shade. Definitely falling into my comfort zone of nudes-neutrals, it also happens to have that little something extra via its multi-dimensional sparkle – and versatile enough to be worn either on its own or layered.

As with many items of this collection, this particular product quickly sold out online but may still be available at some counters.

Clear Water Lipglass (CAN $20.00) – A semi-sheer and warm toned milky base, filled with pearlized and opalescent shimmer, in a slightly thick but non-sticky formula. Bearing the light vanilla scent that MAC Lipglasses are known for, it quickly dissipates upon wearing. As my lips are rather pigmented naturally, I prefer to wear Clear Water on its own, which gives a slight hint of colour with the shimmer providing the illusion of added fullness. Wear time was about 2.5 hours at most – as expected with a shade this light – but the some of the sparkle does tend to linger long after the gloss itself has worn off. Lips feel quite moisturized both during and after the wearing – another bonus.

For those that missed out on scooping this little beauty up, I have a feeling it can probably be easily duplicated by many other brands, and in fact, Clear Water Lipglass is very similar to another one of my all-time favourite (and permanent) glosses, CHANEL’s #151 Aragonite. Once the weather starts warming up, I tend to step out of the box with more vibrant lip shades, but I always come back to these almost magical-looking hues. Blame it on my inner mermaid.

Product was purchased by me.

    Loooooove! I’ve searched for this one since the collection launched with no luck (I did pick up the “Water Deities” lipglass though). So pretty on you!!

    • Eugenia says:

      Thanks, Maribeth! I’m guessing that the reason this shade sold out quickly, is that it’s so universally flattering – glad you were able to pick up another that you liked, however!

    Hey Eugenia, will you be purchasing or reviewing Dior vernis in Vibrato? I’m not sure when or if it will be released in Canada, but I just love your reviews and photos and I would love a review from you before buying.

    • Eugenia says:

      Hi Ally – thanks so much for the kind words and the support – I really appreciate it! I’m not sure yet about Vibrato; if it’s not sent to me for review, I’ll definitely keep an eye out for it – haven’t seen it here so far, but now I’m really curious to!

All comments are welcome, so don't be shy!
