Mac Ample Pink Plushglass: A MLBB Lipgloss
Julie from Lilladylife was kind enough to gift me a tube of Mac's Ample Pink Plushglass after multiple attempts at trying to get me to purchase it. She's not a fan of the normal Mac lipgloss formula but she loves Ample Pink and after trying it, I'm totally hooked by the scent, color and consistency.
Plushglasses retail for $19.50 and contain .14 oz of product which is more expensive than the regular lipglasses but still more affordable than the cremesheenglasses which I like as well. Mac claims "Sheer lip colour with a pearlized high-shine gloss finish. Comfortable to wear: lush, multi-dimensional. Gives a cool-warm, vanilla buzz to the lips. Moisturizes, soothes and visibly plumps the lips to make them look luxuriously healthy and well-conditioned. Contains vitamin E for added environmental protection." I must say their description is pretty much spot on however the scent comes off a bit more like caramel rather than the typical vanilla smell that I expect from Mac. The plumping tingle was not too noticeable for me and was much less pronounced than the Too Faced Glamour Gloss. I have read reviews from people who could not handle the feeling though so if you have sensitive lips you might want to be wary.
Ample Pink is sheer but you can see the cool toned pink it imparts on my lips. The formula is a bit sticky which gets stickier as the gloss fades but it does not leave a ring of white gloop. Overall I am very pleased with this lipgloss as it's super easy to pull off and feels nice on the lips. If you like natural lips with a touch of shine, head over to your local Mac counter and try Ample Pink plushglass!
