Review: MAC Triple Feature Lip Bag "It's A Girl"

YO YO YO! ;D Hope you guys had and/or are having a fantastic day. Back again with a post! I'm seriously on a roll for this week. Yay! For this post, I wanted to share with you guys the lip bag I ordered/purchased from the Nordstrom anniverary sale that just ended on August 1st, with a more in depth review with pictures. It was very much an impulse buy, but it was also my first MAC purchase and I figured why not! I think it was the fact that it was LE that had me sold. -sigh- I think I'm a real sucker for LE things. lol. I originally wanted the "Reel Drama" one, but it was the first to sell out, so I settled for "It's a Girl."



Each bag contains a Cremesheen lipstick, a Dazzleglass Creme lipgloss, and a full-sized Cremestick Liner (mechanical lip liner). ($38) I like the bag a lot since it quite compact, but opens big enough to fit a lot of things inside. I like the yellow beige piping as well as the grayish blue fabric on the outside. It's also fully lined inside. The zipper also has MAC engraved on it, which adds a nice touch. A very casual, chic make-up bag indeed!

Not sure how I really feel about this gloss just because of how it contains real glitter flecks. They do make my lips look a bit irridecent/holographic, which is kind of cool. It does have a light pink pigment, which is nice. I don't know if I'd wear it alone though since it is so glittery. The consistency isn't bad though. It's a little sticky, but I don't mind.


Not a big fan of the applicator. I feel like it's a bit hard, pointy, and not as nice as a regular doe foot. I guess it's because it's for the glitters not to sink into it.

Cremestick lip liner in "Cream O' Spice."



I actually like this lip liner. I wore it here and even though it looks like a dark brown on the swatches below, I feel like it can be used as a neutral liner since it has a muted red/orange undertone that can in fact go with a lot of lip colors. Even if it is a bit dark, it can be easily blended out. I like how it's a mechanical twist liner too. No need for a sharper!

Cremesheen lipstick in "Innocence Beware".



Love this color a lot! It's a re-promote from MAC's Venemous Villains collection that came out towards the end of 2010. (Wish I could've picked some of those items up because of the packaging...I LOVE DISNEY <3). I really like the formula of this one as it feels very moisturizing on my lips. My lips are a bit pigmented already so I feel like the pigmentation of this pink lippie actually covers up some color of my lips and makes them a nice, baby pink.

This pic is a little old (from the time I first went to Yogurtland to get the HK spoon), but just to show how it looks on my lips. :]


Swatches:

Dazzleglass "It's a Girl", Cremestick lip liner "Cream O' Spice", Cremesheen lipstick "Innocence Beware"


OVERALL: I'm happy with my purchase. I really do like the lip liner and the lipstick the best. I want to try more MAC products...but that will be for later times when my funds aren't so lacking. ^^ Slowly, but surely I will! And for next year, if ever I see something that I really like from MAC, I will be sure to go bright and early the morning of!

--- Weather was pretty hot today. I don't know but whenever there's extreme heat or when it's gloomy and cold, I feel so tired and sleepy even after sleeping a good amount of hours the night before. Meh. Japanese test tomorrow. Takusan benkyoshimasu! D; Hopefully it won't be too bad. I did pretty well on my last one after guessing the meanings of the kanji words that I didn't know. lol. Let's hope I can do the same for this one!

See ya! ♡

  6. I like the bag! I had a same style bag from MAC but it was a metallic type of material, which I didn't like. You could see the creases in it but this bag material looks really nice. I'm not a big fan of the Dazzleglass lipglosses because of the stickiness although I do admit to having several different ones.

    Tesuto--ganbare ne!
