MAC Snob Lipglass, Lipstick, Nail Lacquer
MAC Snob Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) has been such a top-seller that it has now inspired a Lipglass ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) and Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) to complement it. This shade is part of the North America and Latin America/Middle East regions of the collection, so it will only be available both online and in-stores for North American buyers. Snob is described as “light neutral pink.”
The lipgloss is a little warmer, not quite as gray/cool-toned, which is partially due to the semi-opaque color. It has a milkier, paler appearance, too. The nail lacquer is actually the closest to the description of “neutral pink,” as it appears just slightly warm against the lipstick and lipgloss, but it is closer to neutral than it is a warm pink. The nail lacquer doesn’t match the lipstick or lipgloss very well because of the change in undertone.
Snob Lipglass is light pink with a little gray-tinge to it; it looks a bit cool-toned to me, even though MAC describes it as neutral. It applies mostly opaque on lips, but it does settle into lip lines and doesn’t have perfectly even coverage. MAC Angel is much yellower. MAC Enchantee is similar but a little grayer. MAC Infinitely Likeable is grayer, more beige. (8, 8.5, 9, 8.5, 3.5, 4; B)
Snob Lipstick is a cool-toned light-medium pink with a subtle gray-tint. It has a satin finish, and it is part of the permanent range. It yields opaque color coverage, though the texture is just a smidgen drier than other satin finishes. Revlon Strawberry Shortcake is a little pinker and darker but fairly similar. MAC Enchantee is lighter and less blue-based. MAC Dress It Up is less blue-based. MAC All Styled Up is a bit pinker. (9, 10, 9, 8.5, 4, 4; B+)
Snob Nail Lacquer is a slightly warm, mostly neutral light-medium pink with a jelly-like finish, even though it’s officially a cream finish. It’s semi-opaque after two coats, but there is visible nail line. The formula on this was just okay; it was a little thick, and there was some streakiness. MAC Angel is darker and more yellow-toned. Chanel May is darker and more cool-toned. OCC Femme is similar, a touch more yellow-toned. (8, 8, 8.5, 9, 3.5, 4; B-)
MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented but taste-free. Snob wears around four hours, which is fairly typical of satin finishes–some of the deeper, more red/berry shades will last closer to six hours and often stain lips, but Snob’s lighter coloring means it doesn’t stain. MAC Lipglasses are also vanilla-scented but taste-free. They are very sticky and have a thick, borderline-goopy consistency. If you prefer gel-like, cushion-y glosses that feel lightweight on, I don’t recommend MAC Lipglass. Because of the tackier texture, MAC Lipglasses do tend to wear a full four hours on me, with some of the darker shades lasting up to six hours (with mostly the color lingering at that point).
Note: I am reviewing each “set” together. After I’ve reviewed all sixteen sets, I will do round-ups for each product type (so all lipsticks together) to deliver an overall Glossover rating. This rating is more indicative of the product type, as the rating that follows this post is an average across three totally different types of products. You can also see the individual scores listed after each product, which are listed in the same order as they are in the Glossover.
