MAC for Daphne Guinness Cremesheen Glass

MAC Cremesheen Glass ($18.50 for 0.09 oz.) sees the launch of four shades as part of the Daphne Guinness collection (due in-stores on December 26th). The four shades are: Borealis (pale gray pink with iridescent pearl), Japanese Spring (pale dirty pink), Narcissus (dirty eggplant), and Richly Revered (deep brown plum). They’re all limited edition, though Richly Revered is a repromote and still available online now from when it last launched.

  • Borealis is a milky bluish-white with gold and copper micro-shimmer. It’s semi-sheer–you can see a lot of natural lip color, but it’s still milky enough that it lightens lips. MAC Chillin is similar.
  • Japanese Spring looks like a pale blue-based pink with a milky appearance when swatched. On lips, it doesn’t read quite as cool, but it is very milky, pale, and does settle into lip lines a bit. MAC Viva Glam Gaga is more opaque. Shiseido Pop Life is shimmery and not quite as blue-based.
  • Narcissus is a magenta purple (not sure where they came up with “dirty eggplant”) that’s nearly opaque in color coverage. It’s a creamy color, and because of its opacity and intensity, it doesn’t look like it settles into lip lines. MAC Athena’s Kiss comes the closest, but it is pinker.
  • Richly Revered was reviewed here.

Cremesheen Glass is a formula that glides onto the lips easily, feels comfortable without being thin or thick, and tends to be on the sheerer side in color, though both Narcissus and Richly Revered are rather opaque. It’s non-sticky (as compared to Lipglass, which is very thick and sticky), and it typically wears two hours or so on me before wearing away. Each tube seems large, but it only holds 0.09 oz., which is about half the size of your average lipgloss.
