This would be the other end of my MAC Brunette Blonde Redhead 1/09 haul! Quick Tease is from the Brunette end of the collection. As I said in my Strawberry Blonde lipglass review, I love the idea of colors inspired by hair colors, but found that these two were the only ones worth picking up.
When swatches first arose, many people were eager to get Quick Tease because it was supposed to be the sister to Jampacked of Cult of Cherry, the lipglass that sold out incredibly quickly.
Well, I'm sorry, but it's not. However, it's a lighter, slightly sheerer, more wearable version of Jampacked. I think, what MAC had in mind for this color, if Jampacked was for full on gothic girl, Quick Tease would be for the timid sister tentatively testing it out.
It's a dark plum with a reddish tint. Super pretty, and gives my pigmented lips a darker, more sexy-esque look. However, for some reason this is sheerer than the permanent line of MAC lipglosses for some reason--maybe to keep with the 'timid sister' influence?
Unfortunately, MAC didn’t release special packaging for Brunette Blonde Redhead—which is to be expected as they don’t do special packaging for every collection. It would have been nicer than the normal gunmetal grey though.
The wand included with lipglasses is the typical doefoot wand, which dispenses color evenly and well!
MAC lip products do have a faint vanilla scent that I love, but scent-phobics beware!
Note: Both of the lipglasses were slightly separated at the top, near the base of the wand when it was BRAND NEW. I don’t know why that is, but it’s not smelling off, so I assume it’s fine.
This costs 14$ at maccosmetics.com or MAC locations near you. Great buy, and I don't recommend missing it!
