I have a really nice sneak peek of MAC A Tartan Tale available for you today. The first item I’ll be swatching and reviewing for you is the MAC Sassy Coral Lassies Lipglass.
Let’s take a look!
The first thing you might notice, if you’re anything like me, about the new gift sets for MAC Holiday 2010 would be the tins that everything comes in. MAC did away with their typical cardboard packages this year and embraced a rather cute tea style tin. Not to say that the little cardboard boxes and barrels from year’s pass weren’t durable and reusable (heck I use them to store brushes) but these tins are a hell of alot better. The tins have an attached lid and a rather great plaid print with a chic MAC emblem on the front, MAC’s coat of arms so to speak. The thin is utterly reusable and pretty collectible if you’re a long standing member of the collectible makeup family.
The Sassy Coral Lassies Lipglass set contains five lipglasses for $29.50 so broken down you’re looking at $5.90 a gloss at 0.08 oz sizes. Normal size are $14.50 at 0.17 oz so you’re basically getting half the size of normal at a discount price, you’re saving about $1.35 per a gloss. I know, crazy math here, but if you wanted to know the full details this about as full on as it gets.
Shades in Sassy Coral Lassies are a tad disappointing to me since many of the finishes lean towards milky cream. I do not work the cream route well and prefer shimmer or sparkle. Depending on your tastes in lip gloss you might consider this prior to your purchase as two of the three shades lean towards being cream. Shades lean towards being more light with one shade being dark so again if these shades suit you by all means indulge, personally I like shades with a bit more pop.
- Mimmy (Milky Pink Coral with a hint of shimmer)
- Jest for You (Nude Peachy Pink)
- Hearts a Beatin’ (Raisin Brown)
- Pretty Quick (Milky Coral)
- Tad Saucy (Pale Beige Pink)
I don’t think that this particular set is the best that MAC Holiday is offering but it should suit fairer skin types well. The shades are a bit on the opaque side aside from Hearts a Beatin’ so a little stain underneath might help boast the look up a bit.
I wasn’t keen on it but at least MAC has several other lipglass sets to indulge in if you’re leaning towards the same feeling about it as me.
