She sent me a whole set of MAC products and some perfumes from Kuwait. One of them, is this MAC Lipgelee in Lu-Be-Lu.
Now this is the first time that I actually had my own MAC products and I was pretty excited to try one of their lips products.
The packaging is simple. Sturdy plastic tube with a longer than usual black screw on cap.
Moisturizes and conditions the lips. Makes them look, wet, shiny, super-lush!
Comes in a wide range of sheer, soft tints.
The way I see it:
I love glosses more than lipsticks and I like them to be non-sticky.
I was hoping I would not have to smear it over my lips because I hate that and was so happy to see a doe foot applicator. Now you know why the cap is longer than usual.
You can also find it as a squeeze tube with a screw-on cap and a different nozzle which is a slanted applicator on the tube itself. I guess this is what they released in the Gulf.
I had to try it on my lips and found it absolutely non sticky. It went on nice and smooth because the texture is creamy, yet fluid.
You can see from the swatch how colored it is but on my lips one can hardly see any pink.

HnB rating: 2.5/5
Recommend? – I got it for free so I was happy with it. I didn’t keep it because it is a waste for my skin tone. Makes me look like a zombie and you can see that for yourself. If I had to pick up a lipgelee, it would be of a darker shade but then considering the overall value add to my life, I would never buy one for myself.
