MAC Spring 2014 By Request Lipglass Review & Swatches

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

MAC By Request Lipglass

Along with the MAC By Request Lipsticks, MAC launched three matching By Request Lipglass shades!

The MAC Spring 2014 By Request Lipglass Collection is a nice follow up to the lipsticks in my opinion as even though the lipsticks are plenty pigmented all there own the addition of the gloss intensifies the shade and adds a nice pop to the finish.

Take a look!

Honestly, it’s completely ok if you want to skip the By Request Lipsticks because all of three of the By Request Lipglasses have excellent color coverage. Maybe you’re not a lipstick girl so this give your the option to own the shades from the lipstick collection but in a gloss formula.

Loves that!

I think the nice thing about this collection is I felt like I couldn’t wear Hoop as a Lipstick but as a Lipglass it’s amazing. This is a pretty rosy pink with a cream finish that’s highly glossy. It applies perfectly on me and lacks the weird chalkiness I got from the matte finish of the lipstick. Wear time is around four hours without fading and coverage was fairly opaque with two layers!

MAC Glam Lipglass is a bright beautiful cooler red with blue undertones and opaque coverage. I typically can’t wear blue based reds nor can I do cooler ones well since they tend to look clown-y on me but I adore Glam as both a lipstick and a lipgloss. This is a fairly opaque color and applies pigmented with a single layer in place and a wear time of around four hours on me.

MAC Pink Poodle was probably the shade I liked least because I typically don’t love fuchsias but this is a gorgeous shade if you love them. This is opaque on two applications and wears strong at four hours with a beautiful slightly shimmering finish. This is a shade that will go great with colors like Candy Yum Yum!

MAC Lipglasses are typically long wearing with a vanilla fragrance and flavor. They wear long due to the sticky, tacky finish. I always felt MAC Lipglasses were a bit too tacky but me but I’ve grown to appreciate it since that’s what makes them such a long wearing lipgloss!

Overall, MAC did a wonderful job with the By Request Lipglass range! These are shades you should own due to their great long wear and excellent pigmentation!
