MAC Double Happiness Cremesheen Glass
MAC Double Happiness Cremesheen Glass

MAC Double Happiness Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “frosted light nude.” It’s a warm-toned, milky peach with white and pale peach shimmer. Applied, it’s semi-sheer; it adds noticeable milkiness that gives lips a lighter coloring along with white and peach shimmer. It does settle into lip lines somewhat. Chanel Zephyr is very similar. MAC On the Scene is more opaque, less shimmery. MAC Kiss Me Softly is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Imperial Light ($20.00 for 0.097 oz.) is described as a “frosted light peach.” It’s a medium orange with gold shimmer. On lips, it darkens and adds shimmer and warmth with semi-sheer color payoff. This shade didn’t settle into lip lines like Double Happiness did. Chanel Envolee is less pigmented, less shimmery. MAC Ravishing is more pigmented, less shimmery. MAC Pure Flattery is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Strictly Plutonic is redder, less shimmery. MAC Geo Pink is darker, more pigmented.
See comparison swatches.

Rising Sun ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “frosted bright orange.” It’s a lightened, medium orange with gold shimmer–it’s lighter and brighter than Imperial Light. It gives lips a brighter, warmer look with added golden shimmer. Chanel Envolee is less pigmented, less shimmery. MAC Pure Flattery is lighter, more shimmery. MAC Geo Pink is more pigmented. Burberrry Coral is more pigmented, more shimmery. See comparison swatches

I’m not a big fan of the Cremesheen Glass formula for a few reasons: 1) they’re touted as moisturizing but they’re usually barely hydrating or neutral (neither drying nor hydrating); 2) they last one to two hours on me, while the average gloss lasts between three and four hours; and 3) there is so little product in the tube–a mere 0.09 fl. oz. (Lipglass has 0.17 fl. oz.!). Since these are all repromotes, I re-tested all three shades ahead of the launch. Double Happiness lasted for two hours, Imperial Light for one and a half, and Rising Sun for just under two hours. The texture of all three are lightly creamy, thin but not too thin, non-sticky, and vanilla-scented.

    Do any of these compare to MAC Evolution Revolution in terms of color? I’m almost out of my backup tube and getting desperate!

  2. I still prefer the lipsticks!

  3. I have Risisng Sun and I love the warmth it gives my lips.

    Wow I am disappointed in these!! They’re not unique or colorful enough for me!

  6. Love all three of these! I really shouldn’t buy anymore lip gloss as I have SO many that are barely touched that I need to finish first but gosh, are these pretty! :P

    I had no idea that creamsheens had less product that the lipglasses! Boo.
    Thanks for the review!

    Not feeling the light colors. Plus I just brought 2 of the lip glosses from the Temperature Rising collection.

  9. Hmm….they don’t seem to be very opaque….quite sheer. I don’t really like the last shade – the Rising Sun Cremesheen color. The orange-y shades weird me out for some reason!

    $20 for less than 3ml? Are they nuts? that’s like, travel size.

  11. shannon

    I would wear them everyday because I love orange!

  12. Was looking at these, and this post helped a lot! I think if these cost $20, they should last longer and offer more product. I don’t see myself investing in one of these. :( Went crazy on the lipsticks in this collection though!
