M.A.C Lip Glass
A staple before even Lil Mama’s lip gloss was poppin’, M.A.C lipglass had lips everywhere on fleek. This would be a perfect alternative to the matte trend that swept the beauty nation last year. Throw on your favorite color, then apply some MAC lipglass over it, and you have a pretty poppin’ pout.
