MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Cremesheen Glasss
MAC A Fantasy of Flowers Cremesheen Glass

For spring, MAC has six shades of Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) in the A Fantasy of Flowers Collection due in-stores on the 6th. Three shades–Galaxy Rose, Pagoda, and Star Quality–are repromotes, while the other three–Flare of Fantasy, Nectarsweet, and Playful Petal–are new; all are limited edition. The formula is light-medium in thickness, creamy, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear, but it is a very short-wearing gloss on me (I usually get three to four hours on average with most gloss formulas) and tends to wear two hours or less. The other major downside is that each gloss contains about half as much gloss as the average gloss; MAC Lipglass contains 0.17 fl. oz. and costs less, so that’s just something to keep in mind as the containers look quite large but aren’t actually that big on the interior.

Flare for Fantasy Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone pink beige.” It’s a light-medium, muted pink-coral with fine, multi-colored shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage; added warmth, a little color, and lots of shimmer. The gloss lasted two hours on me. Revlon Pango Peach (P, $7.99) is less shimmery. MAC Dynasty at Dusk (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented, more muted. Guerlain Frizzy Mango (LE, $32.00) is darker. Burberry Cameo Pink (P, $27.00) is pinker, darker. See comparison swatches.

Galaxy Rose Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone violet pink.” It’s a brightened, raspberry pink with neutral-to-warm undertones. When swatched, it seems almost cool-toned, but when applied, it reads warmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was somewhat even but the gloss had a tendency to settle into lip lines. This shade lasted a little longer than three hours on me. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $29.50) is lighter, warmer. Giorgio Armani #519 (P, $29.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches.

Nectarsweet Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft pink peach.” It’s a light-medium, warm-toned peach with peach and gold shimmer. It had sheer color payoff with most of the noticeable effect being shimmer, though it added warmth and lightness to my natural lip color. The gloss lasted a mere hour and a half on me. Urban Decay Naked (P, $20.00) is darker, slightly. NARS Bimini (P, $26.00) is more shimmery. Chanel Zephyr (377) (LE, $29.50) is milkier. MAC Rich & Witty (LE, $15.00) is more pigmented. MAC Kiss Me Softly (LE, $20.00) is more muted. MAC Double Happiness (LE, $20.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Pagoda Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “frosted cool pink.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned milky pink with white shimmer. It is a milkier gloss, so it does settle into lip lines and is difficult to apply evenly. It lasted for two hours on me. MAC loves to do a cool-toned, milky pink gloss so there are plenty of iterations in the archive. Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $20.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $19.00) is similar. NARS International Velvet (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery. MAC The Wee Coquette (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Stay Sweet (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. MAC Pink Fade (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. MAC Going Casual (LE, $20.00) is slightly darker, less shimmery. Chanel Bagatelle (P, $29.50) is more pigmented. See comparison swatches.

Playful Petal Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “electric magenta.” It’s an iridescent, muted fuchsia pink. The underlying color is rather sheer–it will tint lips pinker unless you have a lot of natural pigmentation (then it won’t do much in the way of changing the color)–but the selling feature is the iridescent fuchsia sparkle that switches between fuchsia, lavender, and blue. It lasts for an hour on me. I didn’t have anything that I could think of that was quite like this–with the way it sparkles. Maybelline Blush Essence (095) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, while Chanel Insolence (P, $32.00) has no similar but has a similar coloring effect on the lips. See comparison swatches.

Star Quality Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange-coral.” It’s a light-medium coral-pink with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and applied evenly for the most part. It lasted for almost three hours on me.  MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Fever Isle (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. NARS Viva (LE, $26.00) is more orange/brown. MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell (LE, $15.00) is pinker. Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is more orange. See comparison swatches.
