MAC Me Over Lipglasses
MAC Me Over Lipglasses in Good Times, Illicit, Social Light, and The Wee Coquette

MAC Me Over: Lipglasses

There are seven shades of MAC Lipglass ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) launched with MAC Me Over. They include: Curvaceous (light grey pink), Good Times (pale mauve), Illicit (creamy neutral pink), Plum Fun (neutral plum with purple pearlized pigments), Social Light (neutral pink with pearlized pigments), Spite (muted plum taupe brown), and The Wee Coquette (naked neutral pink).

  • Curvaceous is a milky pink with just a hint of plum. It has a creamy, milky appearance, so it can take some patience to get even coverage, though the opacity of the gloss is mostly opaque. It is similar to Illamasqua Move but Curvaceous is less pigmented.
  • Good Times is a pale, milky pinked mauve. The lightness of the color combined with the milkiness does make it a gloss that settles into lip lines. The color itself is mostly opaque. It is more opaque than MAC Going Casual but much less pink compared to MAC Splashing.
  • Illicit is a peachy-beige with white micro-shimmer. This is a repromote. I found this one difficult to apply in an even layer of color–it just settles into lip lines and looks quite uneven, which is also due to the general thickness of the formula itself. It is less pink compared to MAC Lust, less coral compared to MAC Pretty Quick!, more peach (but less even) than MAC Jest For Fun, similar to (but less even) than MAC Frankly Fresh,
  • Plum Fun is a berry-tinted red with gold shimmer. It has nearly opaque color coverage. NYX Burgundy is redder. NARS Bougainville is very similar, though it is a touch darker. Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant is pinker.
  • Social Light is a pink-brown with multi-colored shimmer. It’s an interesting shade, because it looks browner in the tube and swatched, but it emphasizes the redness in my lips when worn. This was, however, the 11th or 12th lip product I swatched. When swatched, it resembles MAC Spree, but it’s a touch less brown. It is less coral compared to MAC Wildly Refined.
  • Spite will be reviewed when I am able to purchase it, but my local stores are presently sold out of it. This is a permanent shade.
  • The Wee Coquette is a pale, milky blue-based pink with white shimmer. This is a repromote. It is less opaque and glossier than MAC Enchantee.

MAC Lipglasses are sticky, vanilla-scented, and wear longer than most glosses (because of their tackiness). I get between three and four hours with lighter colors, and some of the darker shades will wear four to five on me. The formula is very thick, though, which can make getting an even layer more difficult. Additionally, when the hue is very pale, creamy, or otherwise milky-looking, the unevenness is more pronounced.

MAC Me Over is a 51-piece collection for fall, which will launch in North America on August 25th, 2011 and internationally in September 2011. It will launch online approximately August 23rd but there is no concrete online launch date. All products–unless otherwise noted–are limited edition.

B-
I generally don't mind MAC's stickier, thicker Lipglass formula, but a couple of these felt more gloppy than just thick on. The milkier shades are better over a lipstick, because it will help minimize the unevenness in the gloss layer more.

    Looove Social Light (and have been looking for something similar).

    The rest though… look like absolute garbage. Yuck.

  2. Dayna

    Social Light looks gorgeous on lips, swatched, i dont like it. Everything else looks very milky, my opinion. I migh pick up social light :)

  3. t_zwiggy

    I had all of the glosses in this collection on my need-list. Unfortunately when I find COLORS that I actually like, they look like crap on the lips. Won’t be getting any of these. Oh well, more money to spend on other stuff then.

    Something totally unrelated. Have you changed your foundation lately? Your skin looks so much better! Not that it looked bad or anything before, but no it looks absolutely perfect!

  4. wow social light looks great!

  5. MissVix

    Social Light looks gorgeous and a lovely warm colour for the Autumn (hello from the UK! :D), but the others really are a miss, which is a shame as they look so good in the tube.

    Still, there’s plenty of other goodies in the collection by the look of things so it’ll be good to save some money somewhere!

  6. Chelle

    Social Light is the only one I would buy, but it’s not special enough to buy it. Sadly.

  7. Mel

    Social Light is a must.

  8. Laura

    I wish I had bought a back-up of Spree so I will definitely be getting Social Light as it looks very similar. Yay!

  9. Jessa

    Augh! Not a fan of glosses or glasses. I can’t wait to see your reviews of the lipsticks. Now that’s something I am seldomly ever disappointed in.

  10. alyssa

    Ok yeah i thought i would like all of the lipglasses..but good thing you exist haa :p because the only one i like is social light!! :) looks gorgeous!

  11. RedWeatherTigerD

    Social Light is absolutely gorgeous. I wonder why some these glosses (social Light in particular) look cracked in the tube. Normally one would expect that from old gloss–any idea what’s going on there?

  12. Anne

    Eeeew – bar Social Light these look hideous. 1 lipglass hit on the wallet is better than 4 though. Looking forward to seeing swatches of the other 3.

  13. Out of all, I like Social Light the best, though I probably won’t purchase it. :\

  14. Lisa

    Social light looks awesome in the tube and swatched, but not so much color on the lips. I have so much sparkly lipglass… i think it might end up looking all the same =[
    I think I’ll get Spite too because it’s gorgeous on tanner skins!

  15. Alyssa

    The Wee Coquette? Really? That was the ugliest lipglass from all the holiday sets.

  16. Carrie Ann

    These look too easy to dupe, therefore easy to skip. Social Light is very pretty, though.

  17. Becca

    these all look gorgeous in the tubes, but social light is the only one nice enough on the lips, and I will be passing on these anyways.

  18. Huh. I had Illicit when it originally came out years ago, and it was one of my favorites at the time, but I remember it looking MUCH more pink and glistening than this version? (and more opaque)

  19. Laura

    Ditto, your skin looks poreless! I’m pretty disappointed with the glosses though, with such a big collection I was hoping for something more impressive

  20. Lisa

    Wow, thanks for your A+ effort in reviewing this huge collection!

    I love social light <3

  21. Ashley

    I really like Good Times on you. It looks like a nice pink (but probably dupable).

  22. aradhana

    they look really pretty on you christine, regardless of the milkiness/uneveness up close on swatches!

  23. Kerrie

    Social Light is bee-yoo-tee-ful! The rest look like colored Elmer’s Glue. Yuck!

  24. Fiaspice

    Oh Social Light looks great, sounds like I might add this one to my NYC shopping spree!

  25. Amy

    The colors are all so pretty but they just look disgusting on the lips.

  26. janice

    Is Good Times or Wee Coquette anything like Nars Turkish Delight Christine?

  27. artemis

    aww i like the good times color but it looks bad:(

  28. Aleena

    social light has me drooling>>>need it!!!!!!!!!1

  29. catalina

    OMG i loveeeeeee social light! definately getting it!

  30. Saffy

    Social is beautiful, but the others are just awful and patchy looking.

  31. Heather H

    Hi Christine how does Illicit compare to Ember Glow lipglass?

  32. Sarah

    PLEASE tell us what eye shadow you have on in this photo….it’s such a pretty purple

  33. Emily

    Hey Christine I have quite pigmented lips.. Are good times and wee coquette similar enough to get only one if so which is better??

  34. divinem (Melissa)

    Yuk! What happened to the pigmentation? MAC Lipglasses are known for the semi-opaqueness. I do like the Social Light. It would work well as a summer lipglass since my lips are so pigmented.

    Thanks for the swatches, Christine.

  35. Lovin’ it!!! :D
    I so want!

  36. I kind of want Social Light, but I wish they’d re-release Spree.

  37. Jill

    I absolutely love the look of Curvaceous. I can’t wait to get it–it just looks like such a nice wearable pink!

  38. Andrea

    Plum Fun and Social Light look like they’d be the best options.. Plum Fun looks great on you!

  39. alyssa

    Can you back to mac for limited edition items–i’m thinking if they’re the same price as regular items its ok…? social light looks promising. I keep telling myself not to buy anymore mac glosses because i never end up reaching for them in my collection.

    • It depends on the store – some are fine with it, others are not. I know that it’s usually not allowed if it’s in special packaging (which this isn’t), but I’d still double-check with your local store!

  40. Socil Light looked so bold and beautiful in the bottle…

  41. Laura

    Plum fun really suits you.

  42. Miss Mercurial

    Curvaceous looks alright but I absolutely DETEST the lipglass formula. And I’m a lipgloss kinda girl!
    I’m glad Illamasqua has a suitable dupe – I’ve been meaning to try their glosses, so I’m adding Move to my list :)

    IMO Social Light looks kinda…boring. Ladies, you’ll face no competition from me for it XD!

  43. AmyD

    social light = must-have. gorgeous!

  44. Sarah

    Overall, I’m really disappointed with this collection. From the promo pics I thought *everything* (kinda wish I was exaggerating) was going to be fantastic… What a let down :(

  45. Evie

    social light look great! im buying as well as oh oh oh lipstick, avenue fluidline and the 226

  46. Honeybee

    Social Light was OK, didn’t wow me, especially for the cost. The others were horrible swatched and on. I’ll pass…….

  47. Rebecca

    The darkest shade is the best. People complaining about the sticky texture have caused MAC to tone down the pigment in these, and those look awful. :( I prefer the original Lipglass. All of mine go on evenly with good pigment.

  48. Amy

    Oooh, I love Lipglasses (I almost never wear lipstick!) and Social Light and Plum Fun look amazing! They’re also colors I don’t have yet… I may need to try and get these.

  49. Jill

    I love the color of Social Light but I wish it weren’t so sparkly. I have Viva Glam VI and it looks really similar to Social Light. Plum Fun looks awesome, but dupable.

  50. Noir

    These lipglasses look lovely on you Christine! But why are the lipglasses cracked like that?!

  51. leslie

    I’m glad you swatched Plum Fun and Social Light. I had my mind set on Plum Fun,but now i’m getting Social Light. The Plum looks red!

  52. Dormouse

    The Wee Coquette and Curvaceous are pasty and wishy-washy looking, in my opinion.

  53. mumtaza

    Plum fun is a doable tempting winner. The rest are F’s. Across between “got milk?” and “I just took a Swig of pepto!” Social light is nice, too. I will say if people like this shade range, the little L’oreal lipglosses that are always on sale at walgreens hit this on the head and with even, nice application. They’re the ones with the oblong, squarish gold caps. For awhile they were $2.49.
    That being said, in the full face shots Christine, you still look beautiful. But it’s a case of you helping out the lipgloss. Should be the other way around.

  54. JessicaM

    Christine, can Illicit be paired with MAC Shy Girl ?:)

  55. Destiny

    I don’t really see the big deal about “Social Light”. I love “Plum Fun” though, it’s a def must have for me!

  56. I kinda like Social Light. It’s got that tiny super frosty metallic shimmer look… I dunno how it’d look on me, but that kinda finish really makes me think of winter.
    Plum Fun is beautiful. The other ones would look much better over a lipstick or on someone with lighter lips, in my opinion… The Wee Coquette looks like it could be absolutely lovely. ~

  57. Magdalena

    i just bought illicit, shy girl and peachstock, illicit looks awesome with both!
