I’ll confess that I’m obsessed with MAC Eye Glosses even though I have never actually worn one out of the house. The thing about them is that they really do feel like lipgloss on your lids (you can of course wear them on your lips) which isn’t the most comfortable of feelings.
But I love the idea of them – the amplification of a look, I suppose; the impossibility of glossy lids made real. If you can bear the stickiness of them, it really is a statement look – I can’t even think of a time, other than on a catwalk, that I’ve seen someone with gleaming, slick lids. You could very easily wear MAC Money-Honey Eye Gloss as just a sheer wash – you don’t actually need to do the heavy lid gloss thing; it could merely be a swipe of gold shimmer to accentuate whatever else you’re wearing (although I’d need to be sure that it didn’t just wipe off everything I’d put on previously – maybe a gentle dab is more advisable than an actual swipe!) or better still, a sheen on a bare lid.
The MAC makeup artists always have Eye Gloss at the ready in their kit bags, so they’re clearly working for catwalk and editorial – maybe I should just try and style it out and hope nobody suggests my lids are little oily.
