Today I'll finally be getting into Veronica's side of MAC's Archie's Girls collection with the Strawberry Malt lipglass!
Like Betty's lipglass this is $20CA and, you guessed it, is sold out online. You can try to get your paws on it at a MAC counter.
"High-gloss, glass-like finish tinted with violet, red, and blackened plum - as rich and ravishing as Veronica herself. Wear it alone or pair it with lipstick for a perfectly glossed look."
Like Betty's Kiss & Don't Tell lipglass, I wasn't even considering getting this until I saw swatches of it in this post from Makeup & Beauty Blog. It looked marvelous..!
My review of Strawberry Malt is pretty much the same as Kiss & Don't Tell (click-through to read that review!). This lipglass is a more opaque gloss, wears well, and is super comfortable to wear. It's not sticky at all. The feel of it actually kind of reminds me of how a balm like the Rosebud Salve feels on my lips! Something I forgot to mention in my first lipglass review is that they also have a faint vanilla scent like the MAC lipsticks. I don't find it as noticeable, but it's there.
The only thing I have to add about Strawberry Malt is that I find it can leave a slight stain. I find it actually looks pretty natural, though so it's not an intense stain that you'd run to scrub off.
Alright, let's get to the swatches! Strawberry Malt is described simply as a bright red. It's a really beautiful pinky red, though!
Swatched on my arm
Applied really lightly
See the pink in it? It's really beautiful! I really like it and think that it would look killer over the Ronnie Red lipstick which I'll be reviewing next!
