MAC Lip Conditioner Review

| February 27, 2008 | 14 Comments

Hi mijas.

I have a review for you…..MAC’s Lip Conditioner.


I know, I know. It’s not a new product, but when you are a newbie you aren’t always on time when it comes to discovering products. Ain’t no shame in my game.

Overall Rating: 5
Packing: 4
Price: 2
Would you purchase this product again?: Yeeeep!

Now, I’m gonna keep it real. $12 is a lot of money for a lipstick, chapstick, lip gloss….whatever. I come from a ’hood where we got Bon-Bon lip gloss at Wal-Mart for $.88. And if we had a little more change, we may have shelled out another dollar for the glittery lip gloss at the hair store. And that was only a few years ago. So my step into MAC Cosmetics where everything is $10 and up was a bit of struggle on my wallet and sanity. However, I have to jump on the bandwagon of the lip conditioner.

It kinda really is good stuff. Lately my lips have been super dry. Drier than usual since I’m tryna be a grown woman and wear lipstick everyday. MAC’s lip sticks and lip glasses are so drying. It really makes no sense and I was seriously about to boycott them until I discovered this stuff. I put it on after I exfoliate my lips at night (lightly with my toothbrush or my facial scrub), in the morning after washing my face and throughout the day when my lips need some extra moisture. It has a nice pina colada smell but don’t it seep in your mouth. You’ll be gagging for days. However, the consistency is great…feels like satin. Newbies, this is one splurge that is worth it. MAC’s Lip Conditioner seemed to do the trick and now I can happily rock my lipsticks. Speaking of lipsticks….

Dig the newest color to the collection thanks to B2M (please tell me you knew that bringing in 6 empty MAC containers can get you a new lipstick or eye shadow, giiiiiirl!)

New York Apple


MAC defines this color as a muted red with pinky-red shimmer. And again, I am NW45. I’ll feature some looks with this color. And remember newbies, you can change the color of any lipstick or lipgloss by pairing it with a lip liner. I’ve been eyeing this one for awhile and glad that I finally got it. And it feels divine with my lip conditioner. I also copped Twinks….another brown-girl friendly color. I’ll provide ya with some swatches and looks with that one. It is such a nice neutral crease and lid color. Stay tuned for that.

Peace and love.

    Yes the lip conditioner is the bomb dot com….unfortunately :( I paid full retail for mine! MAC puts some kind of dependency drug in it cause I swear my lips doesn’t feel the same without it.

    The only way I can wear lipstick is by layering a thin film of lip balm underneath so I know how much difference it makes. That lipstick looks gorgeous by the way: brings spring to my mind immediately. :-)

    About EM makeup: I’m flattered that I’ve made you become interested and I do hope you’ll like their products. I wrote you an answer in the comments there (a bit long, sorry!) so be sure to head over and read it. ^_^ I hope it’ll help you a bit.

    Love,

    Yeash, I’ve known about the lip conditioner and I’ve been giving it the sideeye because I don’t believe it’s better than my stick of cocoa butter. I do want to invest in it though.

    I am so trying to get into lipsticks but they just don’t do it for me.

    Oh, never knew such thing exists. I have no intentions of being into lipsticks… bad luck… so imma try to stick to lipglass or whatever…

    I love twinks. And I’ve been eyeing NY Apple too but was a little aprehensive. Can’t wait to see it on you, you’re the reason I got Squeeze It.

    This comment is a little late– but I really wanted to say thanks for this! I just recently got into MAC, and I am in the SAME position as you. Spending so much on this stuff almost hurts (seriously, I spent $1 on lipgloss before, max), but the quality is amazing and your articles really help me with decisions. I just got the lip conditioner today and I'm wondering how I survived without it. :) You rock!

    NYU Mary-Su—> Isn't this stuff great? I am as cheap as they come but this is one product I will keep purchasing more of.
