Obviously Bare

MAC Obviously Bare Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, light-medium brown with warm undertones and fine, white pearl. It appeared lighter applied than swatched for me, and it had a milkier quality to the look of it so that some of the color gathered into my lip lines as milky glosses often do. It was very smooth in feel, and it spread easily across the lips, but it just lacked the evenness that would make it standout. This sahde wore well for four and a half hours on me.

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.

Morange

MAC Morange Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, reddish undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, but there was a creaminess to the finish where some color spread into my lip lines. The finish was incredibly glossy, though, and the gloss stayed on well for five and a half hours while being hydrating.

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.

MAC Wrapped Candy Extra Dimension Blushes

Wrapped Candy

MAC Wrapped Candy Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is rich, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and cooler, violet and pink pearl. It was richly pigmented, and a little went a long way, but the soft, blendable consistency made it easier to control and work with on the cheeks–essential characteristics for something darker and pigmented. As I blended out the powder, it became more luminous and the cooler shimmer made it read cooler than it looked in the pan. The blush started to fade after ten hours of wear.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. With MAC’s newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.

Russian Red

MAC Russian Red Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly and had minimal settling (I couldn’t tell at all that there was any in person, partially as the color was so bright and the finish so glossy). The gloss had a smooth feel going on, plush but not heavy, and somewhat tacky. It wore well for almost six hours and was lightly hydrating.

Faux Sure

MAC Faux Sure Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, rusty copper with warm, red undertones and fine, gold and pink pearl. It appeared redder in the pan as well as applied on my cheeks, especially as I blended and diffused the powder, whereas when swatched, it appeared browner. The consistency was smooth, just a smidgen dry, but it remained blendable and easy to work with as a blush. It had opaque coverage that wore well for nine hours before fading.

Into the Pink

MAC Into the Pink Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink with very subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. At first, it seemed like it might have a more frosted shimmer to it, but as I applied and blended out the color, it yielded that same, glowing, luminous finish that I’ve come to expect from the formula. The blush had opaque pigmentation, but the softer consistency (that wasn’t dry or dusty!) made it easy to pickup less product on my brush for less coverage as well. The blush also blended out with ease, so if I felt like I over-applied, I could correct it. This shade wore well for almost nine hours before fading.
