MAC Mall Madness Lipglass
MAC Mall Madness Lipglass

MAC Mall Madness Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone pink violet.” It’s a pinky-plum with gold, fuchsia, and violet micro-shimmer. MAC Dress Kimono is similar in color but has a lot less shimmer. MAC Dare to Dare is sheerer and has larger sparkle. MAC Imperial Red is a touch darker. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet is sheerer and a bit purpler.

Applied, it yielded semi-opaque color coverage with a good amount of color and shimmer. The color didn’t settle into lip lines, and it went on smoothly and evenly. Lipglass has a thicker consistency that’s rather tacky, and this shade wore for just over three hours and was neither hydrating nor drying. It has really subtle shimmer, despite it seeming to have so much of it, so if you like just a little sparkle, you may like this shade a lot. There’s just enough color that it’s not a barely-there gloss, but it’s not too dark or bright. I want to call it spring-but-better. MAC Lipglasses are vanilla-scented and come with a doe-foot applicator.

    I just love reading these posts because there is a review….even when I dont buy MAC like the rest of the gang…

  2. Rachel

    I loved the game Mall Madness!

  3. t_zwiggy

    LOVE the color! HATE the (imo) chunky shimmer particles!

    • Stacey

      If I am to get it, it will be for the glitter particles…love glitter.

    • Tabitha

      I actually bought this on impulse because of the glitter (and the cute name!) :P It’s funny how objective peoples’ tastes can be. The color itself is really pretty though too, I bet it will look great over the billion pink lipsticks it seems like I’ve bought recently.

  4. Julie

    I’m really starting to notice that ALL the makeup you review looks good on you!!

  5. The full face shot is great. Awesome job matching accessories.

  6. I love this gloss! The shimmer is really nice!

  7. Yellowlantern

    I like this a lot. Question for anyone who might know, how does this compare to MAC Lovechild in terms of the base color (I know Lovechild has gold shimmer not iridescent)?

  8. KK

    I really like this! The products in this collection seem to be much better, quality and performance wise, than some of the recent MAC releases. I’m loving Archie’s Girls!

    There aren’t too many colors I’m not willing to pull off but this pinky mauve is one of them. It looks great on you, but on me it would make me feel the way Dita Von Teese does in jeans.

  10. Melissa

    Aaahhh!! LOVE this!

  11. Stephanie TP

    I love love love this look on you Christine! I know it’s not listen as a dupe, but do you own the discontinued little vi by Mac gloss? I was wondering how this compares!

  12. Vivian

    My natural lip color is a little bit darker then yours, do you think the color will show up on lips or only the shimmer will be more prominent??

  13. Dani

    This is stellar, and your eye make-up rocks! Divaa!! :) I can’t wait for you to review Summer Sweetheart, that’s the lipglass I went with.

  14. Jade

    On the fence about this one! It just doesn’t grab me.

  15. Precious

    Hi, Christine. Did the shimmer travel during and post test?

  16. Oh my god, I LOVE that shimmer. (I never love shimmer!) /flailing arms

  17. Ohh Christine you look absolutely lovely here! Spring-but-better is such a nice way to put it!

  18. momoe

    Hi Christine! I was wondering if this is a close dupe for YSL’s Gloden Gloss in color #41? Thank you! (:

  19. Sabrina Nogueira

    i’m not really into lipgloss, but this one is beautiful!!

  20. Dani

    Exchanging the hideous summer sweetheart for this.

  21. wow, that looks so nice close up!

  22. Liz

    Thank you for reviewing and swatching this Christine, I fell in-love even more =) Team Veronica all the way!

  23. How does this compare to UD Trashed Lip Junkie?

  24. VickyM

    Out of all the glosses I have seen from this collection this is the one I like the most. Very Veronica, Diva :D .

  25. Lauren

    Hopefully I’m not too late to this thread to ask… Does anyone know of a lipstick that’s similar in color to this? Plumful looks similar but I’m not sure. Thank you :)

    • Elinor Montgomery

      The matching MAC lipstick shade is Daddy’s Little Girl, also from the Veronica Archie’s Girls collection.

  26. amaree

    This product gets an A+ for me!
    Sure, it doesn’t last long but it doesn’t bother me to bring it out and touch up. Touching up is fun to me lol (lip products that is, face products are what I don’t want to have to touch up)

  27. This looks like it would be lovely over MAC Plumful!

  28. Heather

    Mine looks super mauve toned. Super disappointed.

  29. Julia

    I LOVE how this looks on you, Christine. I was so excited to get this, but it looks completely different on me. It just doesn’t have the depth of color. I guess it has to do with my natural lip color. C’est la vie, I still like it.

  30. SAMANTHA

    I haven’t put it next to MAC’s Lovechild but just on first glance they look very similar. Would you consider it to be a dupe???

  31. Valerie

    I ordered this lipglass and should be in today or tomorrow, its my first mac product I know i’m 20 and kinda late on the MAC Train haha…but i’m super excited…I am a bit scared this wont look good on me, but we’ll see..

  32. Valerie

    Would u say this is similar to Macs Up the Amp??

  33. Valerie

    I love this lipglass! Amazing!! :)
