Candy Box

MAC Candy Box Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage, though not quite full, that applied evenly across the lips. There was slight color that had pulled into my lip lines, but it was hardly noticeable in person. The texture was very smooth, slightly thinner than the average Lipglass but still somewhat tacky. It wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
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.

Saucy Little Thing

MAC Saucy Little Thing Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a deep berry with subtle, cool undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, though there was color that sat in my lip lines. The texture was smooth, thinner than the average Lipglass, and comfortable to wear and to apply, as it spread quite easily across the lips. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating on me.

MAC Love Child Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and copper shimmer. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lip lines at all. The texture felt smooth, light-to-medium in weight, and had noticeable tackiness that never felt goopy. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

Girl About Town

MAC Girl About Town Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia pink with fine violet and white pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, while the texture covered the lips with even, smooth color with almost no visible settling into my lip lines. The high-shine finish gave the illusion of plumper, fuller, and smoother lips, too. The gloss stayed on well for six hours and was lightly 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.

Baiana Bronze

MAC Baiana Bronze Bronzing Powder ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, rosy undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a really smooth, silky consistency that wasn’t dusty or powdery. The bronzer applied evenly to the skin, and it was easy to diffuse and blend out along the edges. Though it is a more pigmented bronzer, I felt like using a light hand with it (or a less dense brush) made sheerer coverage achievable without having to spend eons buffing and blending down the color. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

MAC Bronzing Powders are supposed to have “sheer coverage” and give a “natural finish” with “sun-kissed” color. Unfortunately, there was nothing sheer about this shade! If you prefer greater color payoff in your bronzer, I think you’ll be happy with this one, but if you want the sheer coverage as described, I would look elsewhere.

MAC Love at First Bite Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The lipstick had moderate slip but had a very light tackiness that helped it adhere nicely to the lips–not clingy but not slippery–and wear for almost six hours. The formula felt lightly hydrating while worn.
