MAC Cremesheen + Pearl Cremesheen Glass Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

I’m not sure how it happened but after trying a few shades of the MAC Heavenly Creature Cremesheen Glasses I’m suddenly a convert. I recall hating them so this is a revelation.

The Cremesheen + Pearl Collection shouldn’t really appeal to me as they sounded milky, creamy, and just not me but seems like some of these permanent shades are solid gold awesome.

Take a look!

I’ve only tried two shades from this launch so far but from what I have tried I can say that a few more will be coming home with me.

This is a permanent collection that launches August 9th so no worries about missing out on some uber great LE shade. They’ll be sticking around for the long haul.

I’ve already recommended to a few people but I highly suggest Dynasty at Dusky it’s a light rose nude pink with golden shimmer. This shade has great MLBB (my lips but better) potential and pairs up beautifully with the Peach Blossom Lipstick I recently featured from this collection.

The other shade I tried was Paper Lantern which is a sheerer soft pink. This color is kinda boring since it’s quite subtle but a little stain under it allows it to pop.

Cremesheen has the same consistency as lipglass with a lot less tack in my opinion. I think the lack of stickiness is what creates a disappointingly short wear time. They include a sponge applicator for application which I’m not particularly delighted with. I’d prefer a brush as it would build so much easier but I make do.

Overall, I’m loving on these at the moment and look forward to indulging in a few more shades.

I urge you not to overlook them. I think the release seems a little boring especially if you’re not a cream finish lover but there are shades here that are worthy of a haul. Do, at the least, check them out at your local counter.

A big Muse Approval for Dynasty at Dusk.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Cremesheen Glass!
