MAC Overnight Sensation Lip Bag Swatches & Review

As part of the Annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, MAC released four exclusive Lip Bags as part of the Cine-matics Collection. The four lip bags are It’s A Girl(which I think would be a REALLY awesome gift to give to someone who is having a baby girl!), Nude Scene, Reel Drama, and Overnight Sensation.

I was interested in 3 of them It’s A Girl, Nude Scene, and Overnight Sensation… but alas, had to pick one =( But it’s a GOOD ONE! Overnight Sensation = LOVE.

Overnight Sensation Lip Bag contains Pillowtalk Cremesheen Lipstick, Overnight Sensation Dazzleglass Creme, and Creamola Cremestick Liner (which is perm in the MAC line). (For some reason my bag had 2 Creamola Cremestick Liners… so I’ll be giving the second one away in the 1000 Follower Giveaway (since Nordies didn’t want it back lol).

At first application I thought this combo to be a bit too brown for me. But after I wore it awhile, everything grew on me, and I’m really liking this for my Fall lip combo.

Pillowtalk by itself is straight brown and not moisturizing. I wasn’t too crazy about it alone. Creamola is a great liner and a nice compliment to the set, but I’m not a fan of the Cremestick Liners themselves. I would much rather have had just a regular lip pencil in the bag. I find they’re softer and easier to blend and control. Overnight Sensation is a brown, rosy, peach, but more peach than anything. It’s my favorite from this set. The shade and non-stick formula are a total win. The only thing I dislike is the brush applicator =( Doe foot applicators are much easier to deal with, but I do find the brush applicator puts a lot more product on your lips and leaves a nice thick coat. The bag that the items come in is a deep denim (maybe black?) with peach piping. I actually REALLY like this as well. Though I have to work it to get my Lancome powder to fit. Let’s make em about an inch bigger next time, k 😉
