On Display, Personal Taste, New Spirit, Young Thing Lipglasses

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection: Lipglass

Four shades of lipglass debuted from the MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection today: On Display, Personal Taste, New Spirit, and Young Thing. Lipglass has a sticky/tacky texture and can be sheer to opaque, depending on the shade. Lip swatches will be posted tomorrow! :)

Lipglass ($14.00)

  • On Display is a stunning deep burgundy-wine with gold shimmer. This one is absolutely stunning both swatched and on the lips. I haven’t been this pulled by a lip color by MAC in what feels like way too long. I like this one so much I’m considering a back up…
  • Personal Taste is a purply-rosy pink with golden shimmer. It’s semi-sheer, providing just a smidgen of color on the lips, but mostly just brightening up the natural lip color and adding shimmer.
  • New Spirit is a light orange-y coral with soft golden shimmer. I was reminded of a more orange version of Orangedescence lipglass (limited edition from quite awhilea go). I liked it, and I liked the way it gave my lips a brighter look and the shimmer was noticeable.
  • Young Thing is a warmed up creamy beige with peachy-gold shimmer. It’s similar to C-Thru, but it has shimmer, and it’s not quite as cool/neutral toned.

  • Product: 9/10
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 8/10
  • Packaging: 8/10

Recommendation: I’ve always been a fan of MAC’s Lipglass, just because it’s available in so many fantastic shades, and the sticky-factor makes it long-wearing. I found On Display and New Spirit to be my new must-haves from the new glosses.

  4. Nicole15

    Christine or anyone else – can you tell me the difference between On Display & Pop Mode? I have Pop Mode already…

    Thx!!

  5. Anitacska

    I like the first 3, but not sure if I like them enough to fork out for even more lipglasses. I have literally hundreds of lipglosses already, and these don’t seem to unique, albeit nice.

  6. The look very pretty on, I’m loving On Display and Young Thing.

  7. New Spirit and Personal Taste are the ones that I’m after right now!!

  8. I didn’t get any, but I personally like Young Thing lipglass.

  9. Wilcoa

    On Display is beautiful for the holiday season, but I have a feeling New Spirit would look no different than Gold Rebel on me.

  10. these look yummy enough to eat LOL! defo agree with christine i think on display is the winner in this! might get young thing or new spirit but will have to swatch in the shop as some colours appear diff on nc40 skintone!

  11. Amy

    New spirit reminds me of queen bee lipglass.

  12. Brenda

    Mmm, does on display look similar to Jampacked? Or that one released in BBR?

  13. SoSo

    i loved the (on display) i think it looks like a lipstick more than just a gloss (thumbs uppp)

  14. Stephanie

    On Display seems like a darker, more opaque version of Quick Tease. I love them both!

  15. Is On Display similar to Jampacked? i love Jampacked so much..
    & Jampacked is darker than Quick Tease..

  16. KrisBliss

    How similar is New Spirit to Queen Bee? They look similar in the tube and wonder how similar they are on the lip. I think I’m in love with Personal Taste just because I have nothing that looks anything like it in my collection.

  17. New Spirit & Young Thing are gorgeous!

  18. margot

    On display and personal taste have caught my eye.

  19. On Display – must have this gloss.

  20. liz

    how does on display compare to algorithm 3d glass?

  21. Bridgette

    I tried so hard to not get another lipglass since i have so many that hasn’t even been opened cause i got them from previous collections. But I was so tempted to get New Spirt. And from what I swatched in store it was so beautiful that i had to get it!

  22. Hannah

    new spirit is so pretty!
    i might pick it up!

  23. Leila

    is on display similar to quick tease from BBR?

    im thinking of getting personal taste .. hmm

  24. Bella

    I picked up Young Thing over the weekend and love, love, love it! It’s fantastic! While it is similar to C-Thru, I like it much, much better. I can’t wear C-Thru because it makes me look dead, this has just enough peach tones, making it my perfect nude lip. My only complaint is it could have a tad less shimmer/frost, but whatevs. I may repurchase a back-up for the future.
