MAC Fabulous Felines - Burmese Beauty
Lipglass: Spree, Fancy Cat

MAC Fabulous Felines:  Burmese Beauty Review, Photos, Swatches (Lips & Cheek)

Be sure to check out part one if you’re looking for the eyeshadow quad, eyeliners, and pigments that go along with this part of the collection.

Lipglass ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)

  • Fancy Cat is a darkened brown with a slight plum edge and multi-colored shimmer, though predominantly yellowed gold. It has a semi-opaque look on lips; may look splotchy when worn alone.  It’s a little similar to Chai lipglass, but I’d say the shimmer is what differentiates the two.
  • Spree is a darkened champagne-coral with lots of frosty shimmer. It’s nearly opaque on lips.
  • Jealous is a sheer green-tinged base with white, green-gold, and pale gold shimmer.  Better for layering than worn alone, since it tends to just look like clear gloss with shimmer by itself.  It’s much cooler and paler than Springbean lustreglass.

Lipstick ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)

  • Kittenish is a darkened red with subtle ruby shimmer with a cremesheen finish. It’s opaque, and it’s rather slippery and glaze-like for a cremesheen. If you typically find cremesheens drying and often skip the formula, you may want to give Kittenish the once-over. It feels like a lighter version of Media (permanent).
  • Liquid Lurex is a multi-colored, slightly yellowed gray glittered dazzle finish lipstick–was also recently released with Digi-Pops. This is a shade better layered than worn alone.
  • Pet Me Please is a pale mauve with a high frost finish. If you are not a fan of shimmery or frosty lips, definitely skip this one. It is one of the frostier lipsticks I’ve seen released lately. It is opaque, though.   It’s a bit similar to Pervette, but it’s a lot frostier, more opaque, and pinker.
  • To Pamper is a semi-opaque taupe nude with a lustre finish. For a lustre, it’s surprisingly pigmented, but it has that glossy, slightly sheered out look, too. This is very nude, and on me, not so flattering as it blends in with my skin tone.  It reminded me of Call My Bluff (In the Groove) as well as Shitaki (permanent).

Mineralize Blush ($21.00 U.S. / $25.00 CDN)

  • The Soft Meow is a muted medium tan brown. It’s not warm, it’s not cool–it’s very neutral. It’s more of a bronzing shade than a contouring color. Personally, it seemed a little dirty on my skin tone, though–perhaps because it lacks warmth, so on my warmer skin tone, it doesn’t look so hot.

    Hi Christine, what lip product do you have on in the last photo! stunning by the way!

  2. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Lisa KyaLyn

    Ooo! What do you have on your lips in the bottom full face picture? I really like it.

  3. Amna

    I am not too thrilled about this collection, maybe just the Pet Me lipstick… :(

  4. Sara

    i know this is probably completely unrelated, but i looove your eye makeup!
    the only thing here that would be a possibility for me is kittenish, would you say that kittenish is more warm-toned or more cool-toned or just neutral?

  5. Kittenish and To Pamper look great! :)

  6. Vijaya

    Is the blush really shimmery? It looks like a color I might like but I always skip heavy shimmer.

  7. Hannah

    I loved the To Pamper Lipstick, it’s just perfect for a nude lip!
    The Lip Glasses are really pretty too!
    And I just have to ask: which eyeliner did you use? Looks absolutely gorgeous!

  8. Jenny

    The lipstick in the last photo (the full face blush shot) is so pretty. Which color/combo is that?

  9. Pinklye

    Thank you for all these swatches ! I’m a little disapointed with lips products :(

  10. Amanda Enn

    Is To Pamper kind of a sheer color?

  11. Oeh, love the last shot, with the Soft Meow Blush! Love the products, I’m kinda bummed now I didn’t save up more for this collection ^^

    I can see all the pics, except for the lipswatch-ones of the Liquid Lurex l/s? I don’t know if that ‘s just my computer or not, but I thought I’d mention it :) There’s just 2 small blue question marks, instead of the 2 piccies ^^ (I’m a MACuser, ergo the questionmark ^^)

    Anyways, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your hard work! Know that it is much appreciated ;) And don’t mind the ones who where bugging you a few days ago about getting this collectionpics online!

  12. Amanda

    Liquid Lurex pics aren’t loading :(

  13. Jazz

    I think I need spree Lipglass … darn it I was planning to skip this collection

  14. Ooh, loving Spree l/g, and also Pet Me Please l/s. Don’t think I’ll get the mineralized blush though, doesn’t excite me at all. :)

  15. My-Linh

    What lip product(s) are you wearing in the Soft Meow face shot? It looks gorgeous!

  16. aww! pet me please is SO cute! love it :) i’m definitely cecking out the lipglasses from this whole collection – i used to hate them you know – then you talked me into giving them a second chance and now i’m kind of obsessesed! haha :)

    btw thanks for doing the blush swatches the way you do now – so helpful to see them on the cheecks – i know it adds to the time it takes to do the post but it’s much appreciated! :)

  17. ooo I really like pet me please even with all the frostiness. Spree is pretty too!

  18. Lu

    to pamper is a beautiful color!

  19. Tiffany

    skipping everything in this post…lol

  20. Sharon M

    I actually think To Pamper looks good on you and would be especially good with a strong smokey eye. Nothing in this group really appeals to me for myself, though (I’m very cool-toned and warm colours just make me look tired!)

  21. Carrie Ann

    For some reason, I’m really drawn to The Soft Meow. I love Mineralize Blushes and I’ve never seen one that shade. Love the name, too. :)

  22. Ginnia

    Soft Meow looks good on you.

  23. viva

    Kittenish looks gorgeous! Now I’m happy I have a ton of Back to MAC from depotting. :D (Er, I’m assuming they’d let me Back to MAC for this collection?)

  24. katoato

    Christine, do you know how High Strung compares to Pet Me Please?

  25. Evanna

    Spree and Kittenish are just OM NOM NOM NOM. And the blush seems niice… :D

  26. Aimee

    Kittenish is definitely on my to-buy list, it looks like such a pretty color for fall!

  27. Liz

    Would spree look good on a nc20 skin tone? Its a beautiful color

  28. Natalie

    Which has more colour payoff in your opinion: Call My Bluff or To Pamper? Trying to decide which to get – they look so similar!

  29. omg I’m looking forward to the review of Jealous lipglass. I have been lemming that since the promo pictures came out, hope it’s just as pretty as my Spring Bean lustreglass

  30. Shannon

    It’s funny how everyone has such different tastes… you said you didn’t think To Pamper was flattering on you but I sooooo disagree! I love it on you it’s beautiful! I ordered two and its all your fault hahahaha :)

  31. chetali

    hey christine whats your skin colour?

  32. v

    Heyy Christine… which lipglass would look better over a nude lip, the blue or green? Also I heard that they make your teeth look whiter, is that true?

  33. Carrie Ann

    Ooh, Jealous and Wildly Refined are pretty. Had to get the green Lipglass, since I love Springbean so much.

  34. Christine, thanks for these swatches :) I like “Kittenish” lipstick … Do you think it would work on my deeper/warm skin tone? I’m around NW 45/50

  35. Heather

    Hi Christine,
    Did you post the photo for Spree for Fancy Cat? I am tempted by fancy cat, but I love to see your pics before I buy.
    Thanks!

  36. Samantha

    Christine, the “Kittenish” I purchased is more brown on me that a darkened red. Do you think there is something wrong with the formula of mine, or do you think it’s just the way kittenish looks on me. I’m NW15-NW20, so I don’t know if it’s just my coloring that makes it look more brown than red. Should I exchange it for another one?

    • That is really weird, but it may be your coloring, though I wouldn’t think it’d pull brown. You could try swatching it against the tester and seeing if they swatch the same.

      • Samantha

        Thanks! I’ll swatch it against the tester. I thought it was weird as well, especially since I don’t see any hint of red in it at all.

  37. Teresa

    For about the 5th time, my comment has disappeared/been deleted, after seeing that they have definitely gone through. Asking since Aug. 25th. (3 weeks+!)

    Any lipsticks out there like “Pet Me, Please” & “Aristo-Cat” without the frost???

    • Hi Teresa,

      All your comments have gone into spam because you are reposting the same thing multiple times. That is how our spam filter works – if it sees duplicate comments, it marks them as spam and moves them into spam. This is why we urge everyone to be patient, because submitting the same comment multiple times results in both comments being removed!

      Try Blankety and Plumful, though neither are that similar since the frost is what makes the color of both of those lipsticks.

      • Teresa

        Thanks Christine!
        None of my comments were ever worded the same, but very different. I will take a look at all four colours and compare. Thanks again!!

  38. Tammy

    Hi Christine,

    I just purchased Kittenish and I was wondering if it’s really similar to Dark Deed from the upcoming Venemous Villains collection? You compared both of them to Media…would you say that if you get one, you may not want to get the other? Which one is more wearable? I’m about a 140 in MUFE HD foundation. I keep on switching back and forth between your swatches!! lol

  39. Marissa

    You give THE best reviews. Thank you so much and please continue with this website! :)

  40. Marissa

    Oh and I must say you’re beautiful! I like your eyebrows a lottt. :)
