Earlier this spring MAC repackaged their Lipglass ($17 for 3.1 ml/0.10 fl oz). They merged a number of of the formulation such because the common tinted lipglass and lustreglass into one. There are some new shades however a number of of the unique colours have additionally made their method into the brand new packaging, however they aren’t all the identical – for instance the unique Love Nectar isn’t the identical as the brand new one. The packaging itself is bigger nevertheless it seems product weight has dropped fairly a bit. Weight could fluctuate per tube relying on if you acquired them, however I’ve a number of that say 0.16 fl ounces4.eight ml. This isn’t the primary time MAC has repackaged a product and diminished product measurement/weight – I’m nonetheless somewhat irked about once they redesigned their Pigment packaging with much less product, nevertheless it hasn’t stopped me from shopping for new shades. Additionally they do final a very long time so it’s not a deal breaker, extra simply the precept of worth per weight.
I hauled 13 shades however fortunately I had fairly a number of B2M empties to alternate for brand new glosses. Fairly a number of had bought out by the point I made my method to the counters and I checked again a number of instances and plenty of have been bought out for weeks. By now I feel all the colours have restocked (at the very least on-line). A more in-depth have a look at the packaging. The brand new tubes have a sleeker extra fashionable look to them.
The shade I picked out are listed and swatched in alphabetical order:
Coloration descriptions from left to proper. They’ve the identical signature MAC lip scent with has a tinge of vanilla however isn’t overly candy. Sticky stage is medium to excessive nevertheless it’s not so cheesy that it bothers me so long as I put on a good semi-thin layer.

Lip swatches beneath on naked lips. Word that a few of these are on the sheer aspect so fairly a number of of them look comparable on me. After all they’ll look totally different on you relying on how darkish/gentle your pores and skin is and in addition what your lip tone is. On the face I’m carrying the Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion in No. 25 Deep Beige with NARS All Day Luminous Powder Basis in Laponie (I additionally put on Punjab).
All of them aspect by aspect:
Some ideas concerning the new packaging and the colour choices:
- Method of the Lipglass appears to be the identical in texture and pigment. They’re semi-sticky for top shine and on me they do adhere nicely to the lips which makes them final a good period of time.
- The Lustreglass shades appear to be extra like Lipglass formulation now. Beforehand the Lustreglass was a thinner lighter texture with a tiny brush tip applicator and sheer protection. Beaux and Love Nectar are each barely totally different in coloration in comparison with their unique variations. I haven’t had time to swatch the outdated vs new. I do know I’ve owned eight of the shades within the outdated components – if you’d like a comparability I’ll attempt to see if I can discover them (if I didn’t B2M them) and do aspect by sides. Let me know within the feedback.
- Shade sensible there are a pair which can be actually comparable. Nympette has extra gold than Pinkarat, I choose Pinkarat simply because typically I can’t put on a yellow gold simply with my olive complexion. Lust vs Spice will depend on your undertone choice, I choose Lust as a result of Spice pulls orange on me.
- Shades I didn’t like embody Metal Kiss and Spite. Each look okay in images, particularly with a flash. However they’ve an excessive amount of mauve/gray undertone to be okay in pure gentle on me. I can modify them with a liner or lipstick to heat them up although.
- Prrr remains to be as frosty because it was within the unique components, however for some purpose I discover the brand new yet another wearable.
- Oh Child is much more sparkly than I may present in images.
- If you would like a impartial pinky brown coloration Lust is the best choice. Nevertheless Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss in Caramel and Caresse have method higher formulation and smoother protection. Swatched aspect by aspect right here subsequent to each Lust and Spice.
- I attempt to do all of the lip swatching in a publish in a single session for lighting consistency. Typically my lips can get tremendous uncooked from all of the wiping and reapplying. This spherical I made a decision to make use of the Bioderma Hydrabio Cleaning Water and the next days my lips have been 100% fantastic. Disclaimer is that the bottle says it’s for Face and Eyes. No point out of whether or not or not you should utilize on the lips so I’m undecided if it’s protected. It labored for me although. Only a tip in case you need to strive it.
- Prime two picks are Beaux and Cultured for the very best coloration.
General I actually like the brand new packaging model (except the load drop). Out of all the opposite coloration choices the one different one I had on my listing is Love Little one which I like within the unique components. I could choose that one up within the fall as proper now I’m not that into plums for summer season. High quality and pigment sensible I discovered these in keeping with the components within the unique packaging. Colours have modified a bit although. General a thumbs up.
You’ll find the MAC Lipglass in any respect MAC counters now. On-line at MAC, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Ulta Magnificence.
