The Pro Longwear Lipglass is a new, permanent addition to MAC’s Lipglass collection. It comes in a long tube that is the same size as Cremesheen Glass and Dazzeglass. But like the latter, it only contains 1.92g/0.06 oz of product. The formula claims to “go on smooth, last for up to 6 hours, envelops lips with shine and colour and pro-long the hours between re-application.”
The 9 gorgeous shades range from your light nude, coral and pink to bright red, hot pink and even a dark purple. I can see most of them working on pretty much anyone and as a sucker for pink, I ended up with Infinitely Likable, a beautiful creamy nude pink that resembles one of my favorite lipstick, MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup.
Compared to your regular Lipglass, the Pro Longwear Lipglass has a thicker texture and did not feel too sticky on. It applied really pigmented and creates more of a vinyl instead of glossy effect.
While the flatter sponge-tipped applicator helped to deliver just the right amount of product, the gloss itself could be a little tricky to work with. I tested out different colors at the store and had a hard time getting some of them to show up evenly. I also noticed the gloss moved around a lot whenever I pressed my lips together, which could be a pain. But it was long-wearing and managed to stay on a good 4 to 5 hours.
Bottom line, loved the colors (especially Infinitely Likable!) and the long-lasting wear but the formula could have been better. Below is a swatch of Infinitely Likable:
MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass is available as part of the permanent collection at all MAC stores and counters for $18.50.
