M.A.C. latest release is a collection of megawatt colours that comes alive on our lips called Grand Illusion Liquid Lip colour collection.

"Its magnetic, it's hypnotic! Swipe on futuristic sheen with the exclusive holographic lip gloss packed with iridescent pearls"
MAC Cosmetics

These holographic glosses are next level and I'm crazy over every single one in the collection. I was kindly sent Electric Rainbow to play with.  Electric Rainbow is a warm orange with a gold metallic finish.  There is no glitter just an intense shimmer from the iridescent pearls, almost like a 3D colour on the lips, changing from Orange to gold to peach.  Simply stunning

It has a medium thickness and smooth texture.  It isn't sticky which is great but they are not smudge-proof, which I don't mind anyway, but do last a while on the lips as long as you are not eating anything!  For a holographic lip colour they have a surprising amount of pigmentation.  I did experience a refreshing cooling sensation on the lips which feels really nice and gave the appearance of fuller lips. Unsure what gives the cooling sensation but I think I can smell peppermint or something like that.

The MAC Grand Illusion comes in clear tubes with a black tapered screw top, similar to the retro matte liquid lip colour collection.  With the swatch above, this lipgloss can either be worn as an intense holographic finish or dab on lightly for a beautiful soft iridescent finish.

MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lipcolour retails for $46 and is available at all boutique and concession stores as well as online at
