M.A.C Floating Lotus Cremesheen Glass – Review, Swatches, Photos


Floating Lotus is a very sheer lipgloss. Rather than imparting true colour to my lips, it leaves them with a faint pink tint, a subtle gold shimmer, and a wet-look shine.

Here are my naked lips:

Here I have applied MAC Cremesheen Glass in Floating Lotus:

MAC Cremesheen Glass tends not to be a sticky formula, and this, for me, is a huge positive. I hate wearing a sticky lipgloss, because I always seem to end up with my hair stuck to my lips.

Floating Lotus fits the bill of being a comfortable, non-sticky lipgloss. The trade-off is that it is no particularly long wearing. When I wear Floating Lotus, I feel the need to reapply every 2 to 2.5 hours and sometimes more frequently.

This doesn’t worry me in the slightest, I’m more than happy to regularly reapply my gloss, but if you prefer a stickier, long-wearing formula, Cremesheen Glass might not be for you.


MAC Cremesheen Glass in Floating Lotus is packaged in the standard Cremesheen Glass packaging – a round tube with a black glossy lid and a doe-foot applicator.

Anything else worth mentioning?:

I adore the light, vanilla smell of all MAC lip products and this is no exception. Even better, it is absolutely tasteless, so I’m not tempted to lick it all off my lips.
