MAC Clear Water Lipglass

MAC’s Alluring Aquatic collection contains five, limited edition shades of Lipglass. The formula on these is medium-thick, moderately tacky (only one is thicker and tackier, noted below), and vanilla-scented. They perform and feel similarly to past iterations of Lipglass. All of them have shimmer except one, and for the most part, they’re so shimmery that they’re the type of gloss that looks more impressive in person, as the light reflects off of the shine and shimmer. You’ll find these online on May 15th, in-stores on May 22nd for North America, and “May 2014” for international locations.

MAC Clear Water Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer nude with multidimensional pearl.” It’s a sheer beige with silver, white, and iridescent cool pink shimmer and sparkle. The underlying base “color” is definitely sheer, but it adds a fair amount of shimmer, which gives it more of an impact applied. It wears three hours on me, and it could be used alone or to add shimmer over any lip color. MAC Oh My Darling (LE, $15.00) is more beige. MAC Boundless Beige (P, $19.50) is also more beige. MAC Like Venus (P, $20.00) has more pink shimmers. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Modern Lure Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep violet with pink pearl.” It’s a cool-toned, medium-dark berry-red with a smattering of cool-toned, fuchsia pink shimmer. This is one of the less shimmery shades, so the sparkle effect is subtle. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it applied fairly evenly and only lightly settled into lip lines. In general, it applied better than a lot of other semi-opaque berry glosses I’ve tried, but it’s not perfect. It is nice for layering over pinks and plums as well. This shade wore well for four hours on me. Maybelline Caviar Couture (050) (P, $8.99) is brighter. MAC Lust for Life (LE, $15.00) is brighter, warmer. MAC Rebel (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned.

MAC Peachstock Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy true nude.” It’s a light-medium, muted peach with a cream finish. This shade has been released previously, and the formula has changed slightly–it is thinner, so it didn’t settle as noticeably into lip lines and was easire to apply. The color lasted for three and a half hours on me. Maybelline Sandy Sensation (115) (LE) is lighter. MAC Innocent (LE, $20.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Calypso Beat (LE, $20.00) is darker. MAC Liquid Passion (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Myth (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. MAC Illicit (LE, $15.00) is a bit darker. MAC Fashion Whim (LE, $20.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Seducing Sound Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone plum bronze.” It’s a warm-toned, plummy brown with bronze and plum shimmer. This one is very shimmery with semi-opaque color coverage and even more shimmer coverage. It wears for four hours, and it the consistency was thinner than the average Lipglass. MAC Underdressed (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Liqueur (LE, $15.00) is redder. Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather (P, $24.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Water Deities Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light bronzy pink.” It’s a a light, coppery-brown with champagne and bronze shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage; the actual “color” of the base seems semi-sheer, but there is a lot of shimmer in it, so the shimmer makes it seem like it has more coverage. This shade wore well for four hours on me. NARS Orgasm (P, $26.00) is pinker. MAC Flare for Fantasy (LE, $20.00) is also pinker. NARS Bimini (P, $26.00) is sheerer, finer shimmer, lighter. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Lust (LE, $30.00) is less glossy. MAC Double Happiness (LE, $20.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
