Beauty Battle: MAC Lipglass Versus Korres Cherry Lipgloss Versus Stila Lipglaze

Beauty Battle Lipgloss Edition 2

The Muse normally doesn’t do battle between three different products but today is a little bit of a special day.   I’ve decided to face off MAC Lipglass against Stila Lipglaze and added in some Korres Cherry Lipgloss for the ride!

The Muse happens to love all three equally but one has to be the gloss that rules them all.  There is only one winner in this beauty battle of the glosses.

Which will it be?

Jump ahead to take on this beauty battle!

This competition pits three glosses against each other with one coming out the best pick. All three sport some great traits but only one can win. Stila Lipglaze? MAC Lipglass? Korres Cherry Lipgloss?

Let’s fine out!

Beauty Battle Lipgloss Edition 3

Weighting in at 0.08 oz with a $24 price tag, Stila Lipglaze makes a flamboyant entrance into this ring. It’s unique lip brush applicator makes it a popular pick for those who like a quick click and apply however it’s price tag and smaller size could cause a knock out or two from Korres and MAC. Sporting a sublte, sheer formula in most cases with a few pigmented colors along the way it applies flawlessly and leaves behind a glossy finish.

Will it’s size and price tag bring it down in this battle?

Lipgloss 2

Swiping in the from the side lines Korres Cherry Lipgloss comes into this fight with alot of force behind it’s punch and fair knocks Stila out of the ring. Sporting the best pigment of the trio of glosses in this fight, the best size, and the best price I’m thinking this gloss may take on both MAC and Stila and knock them out. $16 dollars and 0.20 oz size gives it alot of buck to back up that punch. It knocks Stila right out of the ring how will it fair against MAC?

Beauty Battle Lipgloss Edition 1

MAC drops in at 0.17 oz in size, a little underweight but it can punch Stila easily when it comes to size, color variety, and price but it’s nasty vanilla scent and flavor could prevent it from coming up on top. $14 makes it $2 cheaper than Korres but taking size into consideration Korres is creeping up for the win.

At this point both MAC and Korres have wiped out Stila and she’s out of the line up for the win. Now it’s MAC versus Korres who’s coming in for the final punch.

And the winner is….


Lipgloss 3

MAC takes the final punch and Korres is down. Although Korres gets major props for formula, pigmentation, price, and size, MAC manages to creep in with a little bit of a better price for it’s size plus it’s color variety and ever rotating catalog of colors wipes Korres out. It has a long wear formula that although sticky and tacky manages to wear long throughout the day. It’s vanilla taste and smell could be it’s downfall but it’s a minor short coming when you put it up against it’s many virtues.

This Beauty Battle is won by MAC. Sorry Stila and Korres, the Muse loves you but only one gloss can win in this battle.

What do you think?

    I have to admit….I HATE lipgloss – can’t stand that sticky feeling. Every now and again I give it another go but I just can’t stand it.

    • the Muse

      ha ondine I used to feel the same way about lipstick 😀 I know the feeling well!

  • pickledgreens

    Funny post! Your writing is getting better (not that it was bad before!). I ‘m with you on MAC.

  • Marilyn

    I personally LOVE the tacky feel (and lasting power!) of MAC lipglasses, and I also really really like the vanilla scent. I prefer it to Korres’ cherry candy smelling glosses, but it’s nice that there are options for everyone 🙂

    • the Muse

      hey marilyn I’ve come to terms with it as that tack keeps it hanging on for ages 😀 but no likey the vanilla scent or taste 😀

  • Irene

    Interesting post; I dig it. 🙂 However the Lip Glazes are $22. I do agree that despite how much I love them, I tend to buy more MAC Lipglasses than Stila Lip Glazes. They certainly are yummy! 🙂

    • the Muse

      ah yes irene sorry I was looking at the plumping gloss at $24 eep!

      love love lip glaze but mac has so much variety!

  • Melissa

    so you motivated me to try all 3 today.. LOL actually the only ones I haven’t tried is Korres and they are on their way to me. Can one really have enough pink lip glosses? I think not.. Will you do a similar battle for the top lip plumper? pretty please?

    • the Muse

      oh no no no you can never have enough pink glosses dear Melissa 😀 LOL

      Yes, good idea, I’ll def round up some plumpers hun! give me a sec and will see what I can come up with 😀

  • jonnie

    I don’t know… I never had Korres Cherry Lip Gloss until a few days ago but for me it kills MAC! It’s long lasting without the horrid stickiness of MAC and it smells soooo much better!

    • the Muse

      hey jonnie good pick 😀 Korres Cherry Gloss is to die for 😀 MAC wins with me for variety though….CRAZY shade selection 😀

  • PinkyKathy

    oh i love MAC lippy too. the color, the pigmentation, smoothness are all great!! except one thing, it’s sticky~~~~~.

  • Kayla

    Hello! Do you happen to remember what color that MAC lipglass was in. It is very pretty. Thank you.

    • the Muse

      gosh kayla I haven’t a clue I do know it was one of the plumping ones that was LE from a while ago…I’m sorry I can’t recall 🙁

      • Kayla

        That’s okay, especially since its LE so I can’t pick it up anyways 🙁
        It is gorgeous though!

  • Ozma

    I just bought a MAC lipglass and have worn it once, and I loved it! I bought 2 Korres glosses because there was a crazy deal going on (I got two full size lip glosses, a lip butter, a sunflower Korres cosmetics bag AND FREE SHIPPING for $22!!!!), however I haven’t tried the Korres, yet, but I’m sure they are heavenly!!! ☺

    • the Muse

      that’s great ozma! mac makes some nice lipglasses. enjoy the Korres goodies!!!!!!! 😀
