MAC Lipglass – Frosted Firework – Twinsies

MAC Cosmetics’ Christmas collections are among my favourites every year. I’m not sure quite how they do it, but their mixing of wearable bits combined with sparkling packaging is always a winner for me. I usually stock up on a few bits which I can use whenever – a glittering eyeliner, a fun gloss, and this year is no different. I’m kind of obsessed with how pink and shiny the whole Frosted Firework line is – it’s so pretty and fun, it’s just nice to have it kicking about in your makeup bag, and the makeup in the collection is surprisingly wearable. There are a lot of beautiful neutral tones, with a few punchy red and pinks in there for good measure.

Since I’m trying to cut back on how much I’m buying, I limited myself to a single Lipglass, although I’d happily treat myself to the brushes, shadows, lipsticks and liners if money was no option. One of five available shades, Twinsies looked like pretty much a perfect nude gloss. One the website it looked like a peachy-pink, but in reality it’s a little darker, and far cooler tone than their photos might suggest. Even though it’s not exactly what I was expecting, it’s very pretty on the lips.

Possibly my favourite thing about the gloss is the iconic MAC formula – from the sweet vanilla scent to the smack of stickiness, I always feel about 14 when I use it. The colour is a bit darker and more opaque than I was expecting, so rather than just using the doe foot applicator like I normally would, I just tap it on with a finger. The result is a pretty ‘your-lips-but-better’ shade which is perfect for winter days. Since I use my finger, it’s not as glossy as it is applied direct, but there is still a flattering amount of shine. Like all MAC glosses, you get a good wear-time thanks to the sticky formula – I easily get two to three hours before I notice the colour fading.

MAC Cosmetics Lipglass – Frosted Firework – Twinsies is priced at £16.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
