Obsession Du Jour: MAC Lip Gelee 5.25.10

Okay, so I have been on a lip product kick lately. I went to the MAC store recently and a picked up a few items, one that I have been reaching for daily is MAC's Lip Gelee in Gemshine. Gemshine is a nude colored gloss with a very refined bronze shimmer.



I never took notice of MAC's Lip Gelee's before and I am upset, because now they are discontinued and I love them. They come in a squeeze tube and are completely stick-free! :) Totally not sticky and smooth. I am so crushin' on the shimmer and gloss they give the lips. They make your lips so SHINY but not sparkly, its a very ultra fine shimmer. It is a very sheer wash of nude with bronze shimmer. I don't think these will impart any color on pigmented lips. They are not meant to be pigmented glosses. And yes, they have the distinct vanilla smell to them, which I am a huge fan of. If you don't like that smell I would advise to shy away from these. I love how the application is goof proof due to the squeeze tube applicator.



I am disappointed that I didn't try these out until now. Oh well, I will make it my personal mission to snap up as many as these as I can. They are fabulous to throw in any bag and slick on. No mirror needed!

Who has tried? Who loves it? Who Hates it?

  1. I have a few but don't use them much. I used to wear Sapalicious loads then moved onto something else. I keep meaning to wear Mega (from C-shock) but something else always ends up on my lips instead.

  3. I saw them, but thought they were too sparkly. I went for the Cremesheens from the Too Fabulous Collection. Love your blog and channel, you brighten my dreary day!

  5. Hey! I have never tried lipgelees but my all time favorite squeeze tube lipglosses are the Paul & Joe lip lacquer! Have you tried Paul & Joe? They have the most precious packaging and all the makeup/skincare is made in Japan, I know you like Japanese products, check these out. They are at Bergdorf's.
    The lip lacquers are not very shimmery but they come in beautiful colors and are moisturizing..

  7. I love these lipgelees and the good thing is that I can find a lot of these at the CCO. I actually find a few of these to be pretty pigmented.

  8. The last lipgelee I bought (and returned sadly) was from the Lily Pulitzer collection. I bought the one that was beige - I forgot the name. Yes, it was gorgeous but it just ran amuck on my mouth. When the color was gone there was glitter all over my mouth like I got smacked by a fairy. Needless to say, if I do buy another one it has to be a glitter free!
