You guys know I am a pretty big fan of MAC Cosmetics and their lip products. I like hat they keep consistently putting out new colors and medium. They are a brand that a lot of people look to when they want something fresh and new. The Mac Giambattista Valli Crystal Glaze Gloss in Lena is my new fave for days when I don’t want lip color but I want a pretty shine, but it looks gorgeous over other lip colors too.
MAC Lena is an opalescent gloss in a jar that transforms any lip colour with a unique pearlescent finish.
I love that in the pot it looks like an actual opal stone, and that is exactly what it does to whatever you put it on top of. Say you are wearing a matte lippie and YOU LOVE the shade but sometimes wish it had a bit of a sheen? This is perfect to pop right on top. It essentially doubles your lip wardrobe.
The picture below is it on my lips over nothing. You can see the pretty blue, pink and even some gold/yellow sparkles peeking out. It is too pretty to really catch in a photo so definitely go to the store to try it out for yourself.
In this collection MAC actually released 5 lip colors: Bianca B, Margherita, Tats, Charlotte, and Eugenie. The packaging is, of course, amazing and I think that owning at least one piece is worth it for the packaging alone. Of course, the Crystal Glaze Gloss is what I chose because I like the versatility it brings. You can find these products at MAC, Nordstrom, Dillard’s.
Tell me in the comments below, what do you have your eye on from the MAC Giambattista Collection? Is it one of the gorgeous lipsticks or even this gloss?
