MAC Cultured Lipglass: Review & Swatches!


Hey Everyone,
Cultured, which retails for $14.50 US and $17.50 CND, is a beautiful opaque rose pink colour with tiny flecks of gold glitter.  The glitter is very subtle on the lips but adds a gorgeous sheen.  I purchased this shade in early May, and i will admit that it's actually my first MAC lip glass, and I'm very impressed with it and will definitely be going back for more! (Pink Lemonade...I have my eye on you)!


 I feel like it gives my lips a really nice, natural flush of colour without being too much for every day wear.  Cultured looks really great paired with both neutral and dramatic looks.  I feel like this lip gloss would suit most skin tones. 

Once swatched on my hand - similar to when it's on the lips - the glitter is much more subtle!
This lip gloss, like all of MAC's lip glosses, is extremely sticky which for me isn't really a problem unless I wear it on a really windy day and am wearing my hair down...than I have some issues with it, but I digress.  I find that it lasts 3-4 hours on my lips before I need to reapply, depending on whether I eat or drink.  The stickiness is what makes it such a long lasting lip gloss.  As well, it has a light vanilla scent, which is an added bonus! 


The only dupe I could find in my collection is Arbonne Lustre Lip Polish in 'Posh'.  They're in the same colour family and both have flecks of gold glitter, however Posh is a little more of a cooler pink.

The beautiful shimmer is much more visible on this paper swatch!
Cultured is a gorgeous lip gloss, and I can't wait to purchase more MAC lip glosses!  Which are your favourites?
