    Comments about MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour:

    I always hated lip gloss...sticky, hard to apply, didn't like the color.....that has all changed!!! I love love love this lip gloss. Queen's Violet. I went from a person who hardly reapplies lipstick or any lip product to a person who needs one in my bag and one at home. I am now moving on to ordering more colors. I get tons of compliments. Trust me, no matter your age (and I'm an "older" user), this gloss is awesome.

    Comments about MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour:

    so pretty with the iridescent effect. A few go on a totally different color than it looks in the tube. I use it alone oe even better over retro liquid. Just take your time with these long lasting liquids because if you use too much they will cake. The applicator tip is sharp so you can line your lips first and then fill in so you shouldn't need more than two thin coats. I love the whole liquid line and am slowly getting every color!

      Comments about MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour:

      I tried Gilded Age and it is the most beautiful gloss I have ever seen on my skin tone - I am NC45 in MAC and LOVE all things MAC! I'm not a true "gloss" person, but I have been converted! I have since gone back to get Pearly Girl and I tried one of the Retro Matte Metallics (equally amazing), but my favorite are the Grant Illusion line - I literally am afraid I will run out and need to order another one for just in case - not sticky, lasts long, beautiful gold with shifts of amaziness! I need all of them!!! I don't usually write reviews, but OMG this glossy lip deserves it!

        Comments about MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour:

        I researched every swatch, video and review I could find on these new MAC glosses before I purchased one. I decided on Space Bubble because it looked like the most wearable color for me to try---now I want to try them ALL! The color changes from a burnt chocolate/red to a vibrant deep pink-violet. The glossiness is so wonderfully reflective that when I tried to take a photo of it on my wrist, I could see the light from the window as well as the light from the lamp reflected in it. Amazing! I'm pleased with the level of mintiness and don't find it to be offensive or uncomfortable in the least. I think there might be a sensitivity issue for some because there are products out there that are so "plumping" that to me they sting, but this doesn't. I must have a sensitivity to whatever those other plumping glosses use but Grand Illusion appears to increase my lip volume with the thickness of its formula and not the mint. It lays beautifully on my lips, and my lips are not naturally voluptuous, by any means, but this gives them another layer of fullness. I'm so happy with this formula and color that I want to wear it constantly. It doesn't creep into my lines, it's not sticky like sugar candy but more like each lip is self-contained in this lovely gloss and won't stick to each other. The price is very reasonable as well, for the transformative effect it has.
        I haven't tried it over any other products. It's perfect as it is but I look forward to seeing how it pops over other colors of lipstick.

          Comments about MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour:

          I was so excited about these, so I ordered 4 and loved every color. But when applying it had a menthol smell, like mint, but more chemical-like. So I made sure not to taste it. The menthol gives a "cooling" sensation, but when I wiped it off my lips were burning! They felt really raw and were red. I give 2 stars for the great colors and application, thats it.

            I love MAC & their lip products. I have been looking for a new gloss since Wanderstruck was discontinued & after much trial n error have found this! Love! Pink Trip is a really cool color. It can be a subtle pink or built up to be super color shifting and bedazzling! Not sticky, but lasts! Highly recommend!

              L'Oreal used to have a lipstick that was very similar in color and I was so bummed when they discontinued it. (That was about 20 years ago!). I've never found anything I liked as much until THIS!!!!!

                Comments about MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour:

                I purchased the Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolor in 2 shades (Lunar Module & Rave Bunny) as soon as Ulta made them available for purchase. I only wanted 2 to start out with so I could make sure I liked them before investing a lot of money in something I may or may not like. I must say these lip glosses are Grand in every way! The 2 shades I purchased are absolutely stunning! The shade I'm reviewing now "Lunar Module" is so so beautiful! It's a light blue with a holographic color shift & a glossy finish. I never purchase shades like this because I can't wear blues, green & just over the top colors like that to work or my children's school events but with "Lunar Module" it's not a over powering in your face look at me blue! It's just a very nice touch of blue with a beautiful holographic look! It goes about perfect with any look I do! It's also a great lip topper over other lipstick! I'm not a fan of matte finish lipstick so when MAC released this collection I was willing in every way to try them I hopes I could find a new everyday lip product! They also wear extremely comfortable on the lips! They are so moisturizing & give my lips that little something they need so I'm not dried out by the end of the day! MAC always has beautiful very sleek packaging & these didn't fall short of that. I love the packagingredients of the Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolor's. Another thing I highly enjoy is that you can mix these colors to make your own different shade. I mixed the 2 I have "Lunar Module" & "Rave Bunny" & it made this beautiful lavender shade with hint of silver sparkle. It's just a beautiful color. I will be collecting as many as I can of these & I hope they stay around for a while because I very much enjoy them!

                This hasn't come out on Ulta yet but I received early access through MAC direct. When they come to Ulta I will do my reorders through here for the points program. I got the Lunar Module and Space Bubble. I like using the Lunar Module as a lip topper especially with gradient lip looks in berry for winter. Space Bubble can be worn alone too and is beautiful shade. I highly recommend.

                    MAC Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolour is a comfortable formula which applies smooth, and doesn't feel sticky. It does have a "grab" to it, but it certainly won't feel sticky on the lips.

                    Great question, Heidi! MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour is more of a gloss. The highly dimensional, ultra holographic pearl and cooling sensation gives the look and feel up fuller lips. Wear alone or with your favourite lip products.
