MAC Clear Lip Gloss Review



I feel like I am well and truly over the whole matte lip trend. I thought it was something that looked really stunning on other people and I wish it worked for me, but it just didn’t. I have said before here on my blog that I have very dry lips and pairing that with matte lip products just really doesn’t work out for me. Which is why I have decided to stop trying and embrace something that works for me and that is satin lipsticks and lip glosses. I have been opting for nourishing lipsticks and lip glosses for a while now and I have to say that I have been loving how it has been improving my makeup and pulling the whole looks together.

But, through my relentless efforts to try and make the matte lip trend work for me, I have countless matte lipsticks and various brands of liquid lipsticks. That is why I have opted for this MAC Clear Lip Gloss, so that I can add a slick on top of my matte lipsticks and help to turn them into something that works for me. I feel like once upon a time, I used to have loads of glosses but I kind of grew out of them and got rid of them and I am kicking myself for that now. But, I thought that this MAC Clear Lip Glass would be a good starting ground for me.

The reason why I wanted to do a post about this MAC Clear Lip Glass is because over the past couple of months I have tried a lot of different glosses and this is by a country mile the favourite one that I have tried out. What I really love about this gloss is that they seem to have the balance just right with this. It has a lovely lacquer to it that makes the lips really shiny, but it isn’t overly sticky, and I don’t have to worry about my lips been overly tacky and my hair getting stuck to it. Plus, you only need the tiniest amount of this to get a really glossy look so I can see this tube lasting for a really long time.



Sometimes, I feel like we all forget about the amazing items that MAC sell. Back when I was first completely obsessed with makeup and I started watching YouTube videos, everything was about MAC, it really was the pinnacle of high end makeup. Over the years so many brands have stepped up their game and I feel like we all kind of forget about MAC and the amazing quality of their products. I have very rarely had anything from MAC that I haven’t completely adored, and this is a really great product.

Another reason why I have been completely in love with this product is because of how big it makes my lips look. With the whole matte trend, it kind of makes your lips look smaller, but gloss really helps to reflect the light and make your lips look larger. And I am all for my lips looking ever so slightly more plumped without my having to have crazy lip injections!

Anyway, I will leave this review here because there isn’t really much that you can say about a clear lip gloss other than the fact that I really love it and I have been using it to death recently. It looks really pretty, and I can see myself using this throughout all of the summer as my go to lip product. I will leave a link to this down below in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know what your favourite glosses are at the moment and I will have to check them out for myself!

  1. I totally agree that not many people talk about MAC anymore. It used to be *the* brand, that everyone talked about, but now they hardly get a look in. This gloss sounds amazing, and I haven't heard people talk about clear gloss for a long time. Like you though, the matte lip trend doesn't work for me either, so I'll have to pick this up! Great review xx

  2. I put on a matte lip today and I was literally like, no. In the Summer time I just have to wear sheer and glossy lips because otherwise I just think it drains my face and I need that little bit of life! I didn't know that Mac did a clear lipgloss, it looks stunning! You should definitely try out the Colourpop lipglosses in "Aquarius" and "Fairy Floss" I reckon they'd be right up your street! xx

    1. You have to wear gloss in the summer, it is some kind of unwritten rule!
      I really need to try out some Colourpop products, I feel like the only person in the world who hasn't tried anything out yet!

  3. I don't like matte during the summer but I am a fan in winter for parties I would always wear a bold matte lipstick !
    I am so afraid of clear gloss I use to have those to play with makeup as a child and the final look was not very glorious !

  5. That lip gloss sounds really good!! It's really good for summer because it's more lightweight, and airy.

  6. What a shame I never got the chance to try MAC products before. I can't explain how it happened (Mac shops are literally everywhere!) but for some reason I just never entered. One of my friends once got a palette of eyeshadows and she loved it, thought it's of great quality and so I believe this gloss is great as well.

  10. I am still a MAC girl at heart and can't picture myself without my Blacktrack, Groundwork, Ruby Woo and many other wonderful products that are in my daily makeup routine. I love this gloss! It does feel a bit heavy compared to what brands release now, but oh wow! It gives you such a surreal, glass-like reflection. I often see how makeup artists use it on an actual lid for editorial photoshoots. Great review xx

  12. I think being from Australia and not growing up with MAC, at least for me, I've never been one to gravitate towards MAC products - even though I adore the packaging, shades and products available and so many of their recent campaigns. Maybe it's time to shake this feeling and try a handful of HG MAC products?! x
