It wasn't peach enough in the tube but I totally fell in love. It was called Love Nectar. On my lips, it turned a beautiful nude with a slight peachy finish and it had the prettiest shine. I like the texture of most MAC glosses. You can feel some grit in some shades but this one is very smooth and I just know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it.

I like that I can wear this shade by itself if I'm going for a naked lip look. It may render slightly washed out but if you have a really strong eye on, it works. The shine lends itself well to lipstick-topping too. The lasting power is kind of mid-range. I've seen some that last longer. But wear time is generally decent as long as you're not eating or drinking.
I swatched it next to one of my old Chanel Aqualumiere lipglosses because I thought the color would be similar but it's really not. I think that when I have it on, Love Nectar really does come close to Sunshine. The color is more beige but the subtle sparkle translates to a very similar finish to Sunshine. In time, I grew to appreciate this color more. Of the set of glosses I attempted to dupe Sunshine with, this is one my favorites. So much so that even if it didn't look like Sunshine, I think it's worth buying and worth keeping. It's comforting to know that this is in MAC's regular line of glosses because that means I can repurchase. Win win!

If I hit the MAC store next time, I'll take another look at the selections. Meantime, it's off to Target tomorrow to see what Revlon has to offer.
