MAC Saint No Angel Look in a Box Lip Kit (2017)

Saint No Angel

MAC Saint No Angel Look in a Box Lip Kit ($26.50 for 0.28 oz.) includes travel-sized lipsticks and lipglosses (two of each) in shades of peach/mauve–I liked that the set was more two duos in a box. In the past, MAC has released lip kits that featured full-sized products at a higher price tag, and I’m digging the travel-sized shades with the more palatable $26.50 price tag. Each Lipstick is 0.06 oz. (full-sized is 0.10 oz.) and each Lipglass is 0.08 fl. oz. (full-sized is 0.10 fl. oz.), which puts the value of the set at $47.60: $20.40 worth of lipstick and $27.20 worth of lipgloss.

Jouer Regent, Rodeo, Shibuya High Pigment Lip Glosses

Regent

Jouer Regent High Pigment Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied decently, but there was light streaking along the edges and noticeable settling in my lip lines. The gloss had a very smooth, creamy consistency that was thin but non-sticky and spreadable. It wore well for four hours on me and was lightly moisturizing over time.

The formula is supposed to have “full-coverage color that glides on smoothly and moisturizers the lips” with a “non-sticky” texture. The majority of the shades were semi-opaque or more pigmented with a thin, creamy texture that felt more like a hybrid between gloss and liquid lipstick than a true gloss. Despite being thinner, the gloss spread well over the lips and most shades applied evenly. There were a few shades that seemed prone to settling into my lip lines, though. They were average wearing from three to five hours with no feathering or bleeding. The formula was lightly hydrating and non-sticky with a sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Beverly

Jouer Beverly High Pigment Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, which applied evenly and did not show streaking, but there was a bit of color that had gathered in my deeper lip lines. It had a smooth, creamy consistency that was comfortable and hydrating to wear but remained non-sticky and not overly slippery on the lips. The lipgloss stayed on well for four and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have “full-coverage color that glides on smoothly and moisturizers the lips” with a “non-sticky” texture. The majority of the shades were semi-opaque or more pigmented with a thin, creamy texture that felt more like a hybrid between gloss and liquid lipstick than a true gloss.

Mystical

Huda Beauty Mystical Lip Strobe ($18.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium lavender with warmer, pink undertones and cooler, lavender sparkle. It had sheer coverage (and was supposed to have semi-sheer coverage) that applied evenly on the lips. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and forgiving on the lips as it made my lips appear smoother. This shade wore well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing over time.

The Lip Strobe formula is supposed to be “sheer to full coverage” depending on the shade and can be worn “alone or layered.” Per the brand, the semi-sheer shades are: Posh, Enchanting, Ritzy, Snobby, Shameless (sheer base), Mystical, and the full-coverage shades are: Boujee, Saucey, Foxy, Fearless, Moody (Angelic’s coverage was not described). The formula has a lightweight feel, lightly creamy as it goes on initially but has a lightly tacky texture overall. The gloss spread well across the lips and had fairly even coverage with minimal settling. The wear ranged from four to five hours with a lightly moisturizing feel. There was a faint, sweet vanilla scent but tasted a bit soapy to me.
