Mac Liquid Passion Lipglass

Check your pulse ladies because Temperature Rising has hit Mac stores and the racy names on these products may give you all sorts of steamy ideas ! You may be a tad bit ‘Underdressed’  if you are in the mood for your mans  ‘Soft Serenade’  and as you gyrate to the ‘Rhythm’ of his beat you are going to feel the ‘Liquid Passion’ !  Nope those weren’t lines from 50 shades of Grey, they are infact the names of the 4 new Mac Lipglasses from this Temperature Rising range!

Liquid Passion is a creamy, peach-nude. Ermm, im not sure what passion means where Mac is made, but anyone who thinks Passion is a peachy nude needs some excitement in their life . That being said, if you are one of those sultry, smokey eye girls with dark eyes and thick lashes this beautiful nude will definitely turn up the heat to elicit some *Its getting hot in here, so take of all your clothes*  reactions. That is if you belong to the fairer category. Medium to dark skintones wearing this alone will elicit *Bhoooth hooo mainnn* kind of reactions since this does wash you out a bit. However, if you love layering, then this is a SUPER gloss. Its become my favourite nude lipgloss to layer over bright corals (Quick tip : Bright coral + nude lipgloss=peach perfection) as well as over peachy browns !





If you like Mac Lipglasses, you will like Liquid Passion as well- its got the same slightly thick, sticky formula that lasts forever but feels a bit sticky. Its moisturizing and glides on smoothly but it does settle into rather unbecoming lines specially on my pigmented lips. If darker lips is not your problem and you are lighter than say NC /NW  35 this will look fab!

Pros of Mac Liquid Passion:

  • Very Pigmented
  • Creamy and smooth to Apply
  • Very Long lasting (5 hours )
  • Moisturizing
  • Super Classy Packaging

Cons of Mac Liquid Passion

  • Settles into lines on the lips
  • Will wash out medium and darker skintones



Verdict: B

Price: Rs 1150/-

Recommendation: Mac Liquid Passion is a pale, creamy peach-nude that is a super gloss for lighter skintones. It will wash out medium, wheatish or darker skintones  but it is a great layering nude lipgloss  for them over corals and brighter colours. I dont like that it settles into lines though, and in general iv realised im not a big fan of the Mac Lipglass formula. Its the cremesheens that have my heart!

Great Review Mehak, your hilarious :) This will wash me out but I have a superpale sis who wears this sort of colors alone but looks fab so your very right about the washing out thingy. I have observed fairer girls look washed out/scream ”bhoot hoon main” when they wear red/dark lippies :D

thats true- they do tend to look vampirish with dark lippes

Nice shades and good lip shadows , wants to try at least once and ideal for using for making lips shading

These look best when layered for me. But it’s not a must have color for me.


Aditi August 13, 2013 at 11:18 am

Looks Gorgeous! :)

Definitely not my kind of colour.. I could scare even the ghosts with this colour…
I too like to layer nude gloss over bright lipsticks at times.. It looks pretty good..


TA August 13, 2013 at 11:44 am

Supria August 13, 2013 at 2:26 pm

The bronzy packaging is super cool… especially on their blushers!

This shade however is a big NO for my NC42 skintone.


tejinder August 13, 2013 at 2:31 pm
