Lustre finishes are great for everyday wear!!! They're absolutely stunning on the lips.
I love MAC lipsticks - there's a hige variety of colours and textures so there should be something to suit everyone's taste!
For me, the Lustres are my one of my favorite MAC finishes. They're a nice smooth creamy texture and don't dry out my lips. I like to still wear a layer of lip balm underneath. Staying power is decent for a lipstick of this type and they're great for the workplace to give a natural but professional finish. Touch and Hug Me are my staples from the Lustre collection... have been wearing these for years!
I thought I would like the Lustre finish but it surprisingly dried my lips out. I definitely do like how it goes on smoothly and sheer but even with lip balm underneath after a few hours my lips would feel dry. I also feel that for the price you can find plenty of sheer finish lipstick. If the color is dupeable it might be worth the time spent in finding a dupe. If not, MAC does have a great recycling program which allows you to exchange a number of empty MAC packaging for a new lipstick. Also if you buy a viva glam product all proceeds go to their aids fund.
I really love this line of lipsticks. It’s so creamy, and it goes on so smooth and nice it’s unbelievable. It really hydrates lips, and the color sits nicely on top throughout the day, without drying out. My biggest problem with lipsticks is the texture. A lot of them end up looking dry and awkward and kinda just sit there on top of my lips which often get those “cracks” in them. Not with this one. The beautiful color slides across the lips, stays put for quite a long time, doesn’t dry out.
I’m looking forward to trying many other shades from this collection.
