MAC Styleseeker Lipglass Review & Swatches

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

MAC Styleseeker launched while I was away. Did anyone grab anything from this collection? It looks a little meh at a glance but there are actually some great pieces in this launch so don’t overlook it.

I’m in love with the lipglasses, so much so I’m considering a back up of a shade or two.

Let’s take a look at the MAC Styleseeker Lipglass shades I’m loving!

The lipglasses from MAC Styleseeker are not to be overlooked in my opinion. These are some of the nicest shades I’ve seen in a while from MAC plus they are ideal for Fall looks.

The collection includes four limited edition shades. I got two press samples to play with but I quickly logged onto MAC today and proceeded to buy backups of all the colors. It’s quite rare I do backups anymore but these just called to me as keeper shades.

Electric Edge is a lightly burned orange that proves very wearable for me. As you know from many of my whining past posts, I can’t really do orange. But this color proves very easy to wear. The color has a nice warmth to it with a hint of peach, I think that peach is what makes it so easy to wear.

The other shade I am absolutely in love with is Restless. This is a dark bronze but it has hints of maroon, golden shimmer, and a little bit of red to it. It’s a complex shade that’s truly lovely for Fall.

Electric Edge and Restless

Restless

Electric Edge

I think I love the colors so much because they remind me of newly fallen leaves.

Overall, these are incredible shades. One of the things that makes them so great is the fact they are so opaque. The colors have a very rich color pay off so what you see in the tube is what you’ll get on your lips.

Restless

Electric Edge

Absolutely adore these.

Don’t write MAC Styleseeker off, it has some great shades in the launch such as these lipglasses.

Winning!

Very Muse Approved for purchase.

I’d consider picking up both these colors if I were you.

What did you haul from Styleseeker?

About the Muse

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 love your blog but the way you take a picture of your face makes your mouth area darker so it’s a bit hard to see the accurate color of lip products X( I think people would prefer seeing a photo of you in a better lighting.

    • the Muse

      sorry luka, I really not a great photographer! I’m trying to improve photos overall but it proves difficult since I live in an older Victorian house and there aren’t a ton of natural light sources :-/ apologies that you can’t see the photo well, I hope the swatches help a little bit.

  • Marilyn @ Lipgloss and Spandex

    Those look so pretty…. I can’t decide which I like better! I might have to pick them both up next time I’m at MAC 🙂
