MAC Lustreglass in Star Nova

Earlier this year when I went to New York I went a little MAC lipstick and lipgloss crazy! Today I wanted to share MAC's Lustreglass in Star Nova ($18 CAD/0.17oz) with you. In the tube, this lipgloss looks like a fairly bright purple shade, but it applies somewhat sheer, with a ton of shimmer, which I love.

"Two high-powered effects - Lustre and Glass - in one new lip finish. This amazing ornamental finish shines the lips with hi-shine overlaid with various tones of pearlized glaze. Beyond sexy. Transcends all known shine." - MAC

MAC's Lustreglasses come with a brush tip applicator, which I really love and prefer over doe foot applicators. Star Nova is a beautiful pink-lilac shade with a ton of shimmer. This is a shade that can be worn alone on your lips for a sheer wash of colour and a whole lot of shimmer. I like to layer this gloss over plummy lipsticks, such as MAC's Plumful and Syrup. 

Even though this gloss is packed full of shimmer, you can't feel it at all on your lips. This formula feels quite creamy on my lips, and I don't find it to be sticky at all. Star Nova lasts for about 3 hours on my lips before I need to reapply. I never really hear anyone talking about this shade, but I really love it and I'm glad to have it in my collection!

Have you tried MAC's Star Nova before? I highly recommend it if you're a lover of shimmer and glitter, and you like to layer gloss over your lipsticks! What is your favourite MAC lipgloss? :)
