I'm being generous
Tags +Moisturizing, High Shine, sickening lips
I gave this a 4 out of 5 because I really wanted to give it a 5 but I also really want to give it a 1. This is probably my absolute favorite clear lip gloss. It's amazing because you can go ridiculously thick to the point that your lips ACTUALLY look like glass, or just a little dab for a light sheen. I do however really only recommend it for shorter hair for people because if the wind blows and a single strand of your hair touches your lips, it will be stuck and difficult to get off and that is quite embarassing. This is also not a good "kissing" lip gloss. I tend to use it specifically when I want to punish somebody under the guise of a sweet gesture. haha The reason I want to give this product a 1 out of 5 (but couldn't because of the fact that it's my favorite clear lip gloss) is because the packaging is, as stated before, horrendous. It's the ONLY lip gloss I've gotten from mac that leaks so uncontrollably and horribly. Every time I buy a new one, I THINK it isn't going to happen but time and time again it's the same old song. It ruins anything it touches and even if just a LITTLE dribbles to the side of it's own packaging its next to IMPOSSIBLE to get off because this lip gloss is STICK E! You'll need some goo gone and industrial solvents to remove this. This makes it a bit of a worry and hassle to bring around with you and a product I will NEVER carry in a makeup bag due to it's high chance of leaking therefore ruining hundreds of dollars of makeup that in effect need to be re-bought and replaced.

Love!!!
Tags +High Shine, Non-Sticky, Moisturizing
This is by far one of my fav lipglosses!! It is shiny and lasts long!!! I think it makes my lips look fuller and clean. I do use a clear lip liner to keep the gloss from moving, I found that helps and seems to make the gloss last that much longer.
My only complaint is the lipgloss tube leaks... So I unfortunately no longer carry this in my bag. It must stay upright :-(. Other than that if you are looking for a clean beautiful clear gloss this is your baby!!!

Good but BAD!
Tags +High Shine, lips
i have bought this product 4 times and everytime it is worse than the last time, however, I won't purchase it again and I'm considering returning it. It looks great on, very shiny and I've had guys even compliment me BUT it's not worth the mess it makes. I also agree with the earlier post about if you have long hair and any wind or breeze that blows your hair...it will stick to your lips. I have spent more money on new makeup bags because the gloss leaks and more time washing my other products to get the goo off. I now carry it in a zip lock bag and it has leaked so much I can't get it out of the bag. In Ontario this gloss is $22. With all the complaints here about the packaging, stickiness and leaking...you'd think MAC would work on that! If you are doing a photo shoot and you leave the gloss at home (standing on end) then its great. DON'T dare put it in your purse, makeup bag or pocket. Its a shame because its a great product.

Perfection!!
Tags +Moisturizing, High Shine, everyday use
Let me start off by saying that I have NO idea what other people are doing, but my lipglass has NEVER leaked or messed up anything! I carry one in my purse EVERY DAY and keep an extra one in my makeup bag, never had a problem. I LOVE this stuff! One tube can last forever because one small dab is all you need to get nice shine and moisture on bare lips or turn your favorite lipstick into a great, glossy, sexy lip color. Before Rebel became a lipglass, I used to make my own with the original Rebel lipstick and I still do this for Diva and the new retro mattes I own. I feel gorgeous as soon as I put it on, then I get compliments galore and know I've made a great investment. This stuff is seriously sticky, yes. Your hair can definitely get stuck to your lips with it on, yes. (Maybe cut down on the hair-flipping and/or brace yourself when it's windy?!) But it's totally worth it because NO other product will give you the shine and moisture that clear lipglass provides!

No smell and super sticky!
This lip gloss is horrible! I haven't had any accidents with it so far as other reviewers said. Someone said it has a vanilla smell, I wish! Mine has no smell at all or is it that I got an old one. Usually all lip glosses have a scent but this one doesn't. Secondly, it's super sticky! Feels like I'm putting thick honey on my lips. It's definitely not worth the price at all!!! I only gave it 2 stars because it's real shiny on lips but I definitely won't waste my money again to repurchase this. I recommend no one to waste their money on this gloss, save your money. I believe a drug store lip gloss is better than this!

Super shiny!
Tags +High Shine
I have been using this lipglass for as long as I can remember. It's so unique because I have never used anything like it. It is the shiniest and longest lasting lip gloss ever! It is super thick but that's what makes it last. It's not the lipgloss to go to when you know you're going to be doing some kissing but it is THE lipgloss to go to when you want high shine and wanna look seductive. :P
This would be five stars if it was put back into the old packaging. I cannot stand the new packaging. it manages to squeeze out of the tube and get all over the make up bag. I love the old original packaging that it used to come with. with the round tip.

THE ONE
Tags +High Shine, wet look
This is what made me fall in love with MAC a long, long time ago. If you are looking for a perfect glass shine lip gloss - this is the one! It stays where you put it and does not slide over your lip line or face. Can be used over your lip liner.Try this over your fav matte lipstick and now you have that same color with AH-mazing shine. I also like it mixed with pigments....but is always beautiful on its own.

I luv luv luv this stuff!!!! if u love the look & feel of high gloss this is the product for you. I apply it alone with my liner or as a top coat to lipstick and I shine for hours at a time. I don't suffer from the lip peeling or dryness issues as I have from many other products!!!

YOU SHINING BABY!!
Tags +High Shine, all day shine
This is one of the best lipglasses hands down. But like everyone has said, the packaging is horrible..It will do alot of damage to your makeup bag, and other items..It's so glossy that the cap will undo itself if the tube is not wiped off after your done applying it.. If redone in a different tube it would recieve a 5 rating from everyone..

Tags +High Shine
This gloss is great, yet i hated it and exchanged it twice because the top is leaking and my whole wallet was full of goo. Repackage because I really love it but I do not want to sacrifice my purse/wallet for it.

Tags +High Shine
I purchased this a few months ago, and I have to say, I love the gloss shine, but the tube gets too sticky, and no matter how many times I clean off the top, it still manages to leak in my cosmetic bag and makes everything sticky. So I find I don't use it anymore. So sad to say, but true.

Leaks dreadfully
Tags +High Shine
I love this lip gloss, but it leaks everywhere. When you take the cap off - it oozes up like a mini volcano. Put the lid back on and set it down - and it's all over your counter. Sticky, icky mess. Don't even think of putting it in your purse. After a month of wrestling with this, I threw it out totally disappointed. Huge waste of money. If it had a better container, it would be legendary. But now? Don't bother.

Looks great
Tags +High Shine, Non-Sticky, Moisturizing, shine and hydration
I have had no problems with the top like other reviewers , but if this got in my purse I would be sad. That aside, I love this product. It is so hydrating. It adds perfect shine, (yes, it is thick not sticky like some ppl say. My lips aren't sticking together) and it really makes my lipstick pop. I think it prolongs the life of my lipstick and I haven't had it long but have already had compliments. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

I've found better...
Tags +High Shine, long lasting
I bought this lipglass a long time ago. I like it because it adds high shine and lasts forever. But the cons outweigh the pros. It is SUPER thick and it leaves that plasticy feel on your lips and when it's my bag it leaks and is so messy. And it's so STICKY! I probably wouldn't buy it again.

I love this gloss! It is super thick like honey, but that's what I like. It has a high shine and is very sexy. It lasts all day and looks great alone or with your favorite lipstick... Love Love Love!!!!

here's the trick
Tags +High Shine, Moisturizing, gorgeous lips and moisture
I have found that while lip glass is very thick and sticky the less you use the better, first apply a thin layer of lip conditioner(mac) and apply the lip glass over that with a lip brush or even your finger you will use less and it will not be as tacky on the lips.

Tags +Moisturizing, High Shine
MAC's lipglass is my by far favorite lip favorite lip staple. I've been using it for over 10 years and it is a must have! You only need a little and it lasts for hours without needing to reapply it. Love, love, love it!
