MAC Mineralize Glass Review & Swatches

MAC Mineralize Glass

The new MAC Mineralize Glass ($22) is a twelve shade permanent shade collection from MAC that launched earlier this month from the brand.

You might like Mineralize Glass if MAC’s original Lipglass formula is a bit too sticky for you. Although I will say at a little bit of a larger size, 0.20 versus 0.17, they are considerably more expensive at $22 each versus the typical Lipglass price of $15.

Let’s take a look!

I find the wear time, color pay off, and consistency of MAC Mineralize Glass a bit down step from the original Lipglass Collection which is why I question the price jack of $22 per shade.

Pigmentation was rather sheer on the single shade I tried with a shorter wear time of around three hours. These have a very nice hydrating feel on lips with a thinner less tacky formula than the original Lipglass Collection. They have a very plush, glossiness that’s fairly nice but the color I tried, Be Nice, seemed to settle into the natural lines of my lips. They have MAC’s traditional vanilla scent and flavor with a paddle sponge applicator. The applicator did excite me as I thought I’d saturated with color a bit better than MAC’s typical sponge but unfortunately it seemed to smear product on in an uneven finish.

I like the thinner less tacky finish but it does shorten the wear as I can get a fairly long wear out of Lipglass where as this wore away in as little as three hours.

Be Nice is a creamy, milky shade of coral peach. Pigmentation isn’t opaque unfortunately even when built I could see the natural tint of my own lips under it.

I think Be Nice was plenty for me to test the formula out. I’m not terribly interested in trying other shades after this as I wasn’t terribly impressed with the formula on these!

I think I’ll stick with MAC’s original Lipglass Collection!
