Cheers! New MAC Lipglasses! How fun! The MAC Dare to Wear Collection features six new Lipglasses in an interesting formula.
Did you haul them?
A new style of MAC Lipglass that combines high pigments with holographic pearl for a multi-dimensional effect that creates a dazzling lip look!
Cheers MAC for creating an incredibly pigmented lipglass sans stick and tack. Formula wise this aren’t a traditional lipglass format as they do not sport a sticky, tacky feel but more of a smoother, thinner consistency that feels very lightweight, barely there on lips.
The consistency runs considerably thinner than a lipglass and has alot less shine in my opinion as they are going for full force bling here so it’s mostly about the dazzle sans the shine. They feel really comfortable on my lips and surprisingly wear quite long for something that’s lacking a sticky formula. In some ways they feel a tad silicone-like and wrap around your lips kinda adhering in place. I do suggest layering well as they do give a nice bit of color but building up is definitely suggested to get more pop and sizzle. Although they look gritty (all that glitter!) they apply very smooth and feel like you have nothing at all on your lips!
I, for one, am a self confessed glitter addict but even I will admit that most of the shades introduced are not exactly work friendly. I tried three and the only one you might get away with in an office environment would be Dare to Dare which is pale pink. The other shades I tried Gimme That! (full fuchsia) and Ban This! (purple) might be a little harder to get past your boss.
Of course, after they have worn off you’ll see quite a bit of glitter on your bare lips which can be a tad on the messy side of things.
- Anyone who likes sparkling shades of gloss!
- Anyone who likes vibrant, bold shades of gloss.
- Anyone who HATES glitter, sparkle, or shimmer!
- Anyone who isn’t consistent about touching up (you’re going to want to keep your hands on these once they wear away or look ridiculous with glitter hanging out on your bare lips).
- Anyone expecting traditional MAC Lipglass (these are like NO other MAC gloss product particularly Lipglass).
Honestly, I didn’t like them all that much. The formula is very interesting but it feels dry on my lips and doesn’t pack enough punch to really get me slap happy. The shades, even for someone who likes fun colors, are just a tad on the crazy side of things and the formula isn’t all that and a bag of chips. In some ways they feel like a watered down Dazzleglass. Hardcore MAC fan girls might find the joy in them but this fan girl did not…..if they had a more glossy consistency I think they would have won me over but as is, I think I can probably live happily without them in my makeup life.
