Since I’ve left the question deliberately vague on what I mean by “surprise,”
I’m going to say MAC. I’m surprised that they haven’t made more changes to their offerings/how they release products or capitalized on really popular formulas/shades by releasing them more often or putting them in their permanent line.
I feel like I’m starting to see subtle changes now and for the last few months but will be curious to see how they evolve in the next couple of years.

The Best & Worst of MAC Lipglasses (2017 Edition)

Here’s a recap of how well the newly repackaged MAC Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) performed! There are shades that were carried over from the original permanent range as well as new ones, along with several limited edition options (several of which were in the Lustreglass range previously).

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.
