MAC Style Black: Glimmerglass Review, Swatches, Lip Swatches
MAC Style Black is a deep, dark collection with the rich tones of black as inspiration. MAC introduces a new lipgloss formula, Glimmerglass, and launches three shades: Blackware, Bling Black, and Blackfire.
- Blackware is a sheer gray-black tinged gloss. It is a creamy finish with no real shimmer.
- Bling Black is a sheer black that casts a little green from the gold-green-olive shimmer.
- Blackfire is a sheer black that casts slightly burgundy, which probably comes from the burgundy-red shimmer.
All three shades are incredibly sheer and not even close to being opaque. The only way to get something more than sheer is to layer with a base lip color or to really slather on the gloss (which doesn’t work well either). It’s a thick, jelly-textured lipgloss with a non-sticky feel. These feel thicker than cremesheen glass and nowhere near as gritty as dazzleglass. I liked Bling Black the most, because I felt like the green-gold cast was different and fun to see.

Recommendation: Gloss fiends will likely enjoy this non-sticky new gloss from MAC. They’re not the best in value relative to other MAC glosses, but they’re not out of line with other competing brands.
