MAC is basically the queen of exclusive, limited edition products, but the product I see most often lamented for being LE? Definitely the Huggable Lipcolors. Now, just in time for 2016, not only are 15 shades being made permanent, but the line is expanded with the brand new Huggable Glass. I have the MAC Huggable Glass in Snuggle Up* and Sweet Persuasion* to share today, so you can add this new launch to your wishlist nice and early!
The MAC Huggable Glass is a semi-opaque lip gloss with a doefoot applicator and a strong vanilla scent, but no flavour. These glosses contain 2.5 mL of product and come in a short, transparent tube with a dark grey cap.
MAC Huggable Glass in Snuggle Up is described as a bright pink-lilac, and I was really surprised by how evenly this shade applied, and how wearable it looked on the lips, likely because of the strong pink undertones. My last experience with a purple lip gloss was the Urban Decay Bittersweet Revolution High-Color Lipgloss, and I much prefer Snuggle Up. I think this is a great choice if you’re intimidated by purple lipsticks like I am, this is actually a shade I would wear!
In terms of the formula, I own a lot of MAC lipsticks, but I’ve stayed away from their glosses based on reviews I’ve seen describing them as quite sticky. In comparison, the Huggable Glass really melts into your lips and although they are a tiny bit tacky they are very comfortable to wear.
MAC Huggable Glass in Sweet Persuasion is described as a midtone warm mauve, although I find it leans pretty peachy nude, both these shades will vary depending on your lip colour. On me, this is the a perfect glossy nude that evens out my lips and is a great compliment to any darker eye looks–or to basically any makeup look. That’s what I love about neutral!
The Huggable Glass glosses are very shiny, and both Snuggle Up and Sweet Persuasion offer a sheer to semi-opaque level of pigmentation that is slightly buildable. As far as I can tell, none of the shades have shimmer, and wear time is about 2 hours.
If I’ve caught your attention with the new MAC Huggable Glass, I’m sorry to share that these will be only be available in North America starting on December 31, 2015. However, if you have stayed away from MAC glosses in the past these are definitely still worth looking into because they have a great formula and a range of 12 shades. I really like both Snuggle Up and Sweet Persuasion. Other shades that still have my interest include Coole & Cute (light salmon) and Keep it Light (light warm nude).
