MAC Surf Baby Lipglass Review, Swatches, Photos

As with the shadows from the MAC Surf Baby Collection I was sadly unmoved with the lipglasses.

Wow, I’m such a negative Nancy in regards to MAC Surf Baby so far, apologies, but I’m not really seeing anything here to get too crazy about.

Let’s peek!

I got two of the four lipglasses to try out. I’m still very interested in picking up Strange Potion for myself when the collection does officially release since it looks rather pretty.

The shades I tried were Good Lovin’ and Krazy Kahuna.

Krazy Kahuna proved surprisingly wearable. The shade is a warm brown and looks quite unappealing in the tube but it applies quite nicely with a high color pay off. I think it’ll work fab on its own or over a lippie of similar warmer color. I normally steer clear of brown glosses or lipsticks but this proved very wearable. Mind you, I’m not tripping myself to recommend it but if you’re partial to brown shades of lip products, you’ll easily enjoy this.

Good Lovin’ is a soft peachy pink that applies very nude on my lips. Very fair skinned girls will probably look lovely in this. On me sadly, it was a tad deathly. If you enjoy softer shades of pink/peach you’ll like it however it comes across a tad too nude for my tastes.

Overall, MAC Surf Baby is turning into a very disappointing collection for me so far…..

I’m looking forward to trying the rest and seeing what gems I find. I know for a fact I’m going to love the Surf, Baby! Cheek Powder, that’s a given right?

What do you think of these Lipglasses?

Will you be hauling them?

Do share!

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I really like Strange Potion. I bought it last year with Venomous Villians. Great easy to wear pinky peach!

    I think the My Paradise blush will be all I buy from this one.

  • Rosemary

    I want MAC to make a deep sparkly purple / merlot for me to wear with pale skin and quite dark hair.
    I know its summer, but I have to keep out of the sun anyway.
    I am too old for goth or emo…I am just wanting something dark and sparkly.
    I give this collection a miss.
    Wierd promotional images, too.

      oh gosh rosemary I’m positive you can find something to match exactly what you need in the general catalog hun ;D!

    I might get Good Lovin when I see it in person. Strange Potion is gorgeous, but I have that already. I also got Hibiscus lipstick, the cheek powder (what’s not to love, right?), Surf USA eyeshadow and the two pigment stacks.

    I still want Good Lovin’ lipgloss and My Paradise blush just to own it. I hunted down Ripe Peach and only used it 1-2x max and my Marine Life remains untoched.

      josie my marine life remains untouched too! EEP! I really need to use it already and get over keeping it in the beauty vault ;D!

    LOVE Strange Potion, it’s a must-have lipglass imho!

    Nothing else in this collection is grabbing my attention tbh, poor form MAC, but my wallet is pleased 🙂
