MAC Lip Erase Review

Lip Erase 
Lip Balm
in Pale

M.A.C. describes this product as "a flesh-toned balm that visually neutralizes and erases natural color from the lip. Shine- and texture-free."

This is a concealer and lip balm in one. It's another lip prep product I utilize when applying lipstick. 
I think it's great base/primer for those who don't want to apply an entire face of foundation but want that nude lippie or lipgloss to show up much better and block out excessive red or pink lip undertones or discolorations. And it does just that, it "erases" your lip. It mutes your lip color so that lipsticks and lip glosses look more true to the color you see in the tube.

So far that I've been using it, it goes on just right. It doesn't glop on and I usually shudder when I hear people applying straight-up concealer on lips because if you put too much on, it mixes with the color. Also concealers being that they are creamy, aren't meant for application to the lips.
This is sheer and lightweight yet effective. 
It does cover your lip and it's a balm too so it does not feel dry. 

You don't have to set it with powder either. I lined my lips and applied my lipstick immediately 
after applying M.A.C. Lip Erase. Some artists wait a little for it to set before applying.
It worked very well with swatching the Mac Nudes collection btw :)

The Mac Lip Erase Lip Balm is a PRO product. 
It only comes in 2 shades.
Pale (which is N27) for light skin tones
Dim (which is N37) for medium-dark skin tones
It can be purchased at M.A.C. Pro stores.
It retails for $20.00.

I think it's an effective tool for blocking out undertones which can alter lipstick and lipgloss colors.
Just make sure you exfoliate your lips before applying!

Rating: 5/5
