MAC Pret a Papier Fold and Tuck Lip Glass Review and Swatch

At long last! MAC Pret a Papier was finally launched this afternoon! 
But I have a hunch Pret a Papier arrived around April. Last April, when the MAC SA informed me Pret a Papier would be launched on May and she said it's a pretty collection, I sensed in her voice that she already saw the collection but they're just waiting for the go signal to release it.

Here's how MAC Fold and Tuck lip glass looks on the doe foot sponge tip
This is priced at Php950 which is pretty much the same price with MAC lipsticks.

Here's a swatch of MAC Fold and Tuck lip glass

It's THE perfect coral lip gloss for me! I love the color, it has the right blend of pink and orange which creates a beautiful color that compliments my skin tone.

Like other MAC lip products, I got light headed with the vanilla scent but the color is just too pretty to past up. Although a lot are satisfied with MAC's glue-y sticky consistency, I still find Shiseido PN Primalise Gloss more sticky and much more longer lasting than MAC Lip Glass but it's always fun to retouch lip gloss <3

I really wanted to buy a back up because this is a limited edition but I'm holding on to my dear money haha! I'm just thinking I barely finish a tube of lip gloss up because I usually grow out of it after a while. Right?
Do you know a dupe for this one?  

I didn't purchase MAC's paint pot in Coral Crepe =( First, I bought Martha's Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon and second, Coral Crepe didn't look as pretty on blog reviews =( When I swatched Coral Crepe on the MAC counter in Rockwell I thought it was too dark on my skin tone, the hue looks a bit muddy on me and I felt that Paint Pot formulas are a bit on the dry side but if a pretty Paint Pot color comes up I just might go ahead and purchase one to try it ^.^ 

P. S. I really like Raymond from MAC Rockwell! <3 She remembers me! (I have decided address gays as 'she' as a sign of respect to their gender preference) Well, she remembers my boyfriend because he's a bit colorblind haha! Too bad the last time I went to purchase MAC Blot Powder Raymond wasn't around because Wednesdays is her day-off but I'm pretty sure I'll be visiting MAC Rockwell mostly on Saturdays ^.^
