MAC Nicely Nude Lip Gloss Set
MAC Nicely Nude Lip Gloss Set

Four Variations on Nude Lipgloss

MAC Nicely Nude Lip Gloss Set ($32.50) includes four shades: Fashion Whim (light beige), Satin Slip (soft beige with gold pearl), Get Rich Quick (warm yellow brown), and Kiss Don’t Tell (warm chocolate creme).  Fashion Whim and Get Rich Quick are part of the permanent range.

Each Dazzleglass contains 0.09 oz., while each Dazzleglass Creme/Cremesheen Glass contains 0.07 oz. Of all MAC’s holiday products, their lipgloss sets are one of the best in terms of value. The Dazzleglasses in the kits are larger (in quantity) than the full-sized versions. In this set, there is $29.25 worth of Dazzleglass, $34.13 worth of Cremesheen Glass, and $15.17 worth of Dazzleglass Creme, which is a total of $78.55 in lipgloss.

Fashion Whim is a peach-beige with very, very fine (and sparse) shimmer. It is semi-sheer to semi-opaque. As it is a lighter color, it does settle into lip lines somewhat.  It lasted two hours on my lips. MAC Peachstock is more opaque. MAC Illicit is darker. MAC Ready or Not is a bit darker and more opaque–also creamier in finish.

Satin Slip is a warm-toned, peach-orange with gold and pink shimmer. It is semi-sheer on lips; it darkens my natural lip color and adds a fair amount of shimmer.  I really felt the grit of the sparkle in this particular shade right off the bat, which was unexpected.  It wore for three hours.  Revlon Sunset Peach is a smidgen darker. MAC Spirits-a-flyin’ doesn’t have pink shimmer.

Get Rich Quick is a rosy, medium-dark brown with pink sparkle. It has semi-sheer color coverage and lasted for four hours. Revlon Rosegold is less brown. MAC Blessedly Rich has a lot more shimmer. Bobbi Brown Beach is browner.

Kiss Don’t Tell is a medium-dark rosy brown with a cream finish. It has mostly opaque color and wore for two and a half hours. Bobbi Brown Uber Suede is a little browner and has gold shimmer. NARS More is a touch lighter (more orange-brown than rose-brown) and less glossy.

All four glosses are vanilla-scented, but the Dazzleglasses have a brush-type applicator, while the Cremesheen Glasses have a doe-foot applicator.  Cremesheen is a lighter-weight, non-sticky formula, while Dazzleglasses are thicker and have a tacky texture.  Dazzleglasses tend to wear longer on me as compared to Cremesheen Glasses, which is a formula that is lucky to last two hours on me (I normally get three to four with glosses!).

B
The longevity of this set of glosses was weak, which did bring down the overall rating noticeably. The grit of Satin Slip was unexpected, while Fashion Whim did settle into lip lines.

  1. You look very pretty in all of these Christine. I like your makeup! Gorgeous on you!! But lipgloss still isn’t my thing :)

  2. Lizz

    I totally need to get this. I only own a few MAC lip products so this seems like a good deal :)

    While I do appreciate the way these are priced, I’d still rather pay full price on the one gloss I’d actually wear, which is the first one…

  4. I like how all of them look :-) Too bad about the poor wear.

  5. Savannah

    It’s between this and the pink one for me. Cremesheen glass is my favorite lipgloss ever! I just use it up so quick :(

  6. B

    When are these sets going to be available and where? Thank you!

  7. Melissa

    LOVE your makeup in these photos! I’m having severe foundation envy!! I have a hard time finding foundations that are pale enough. I’ll have to see if Guerlain might have the right shade of deathly pale for me! ;) keep up the superb work!

  8. Liz

    Those look really pretty.

    They are very pretty but Im not a lipgloss girl, this review made me want the tenderly warm even more! You’re eye make up is super gorgeous!

  10. Nanette

    Nice make up! This set is awesome. Is Get Rich Quick a repromote from 2011? It looks familiar. Thanks!

  11. I’m very surprised that the Dazzleglasses here are actually larger than the “full-size”. Crazy for a set!

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Bridgette Bridgette

    I can’t wait to get these. I love lipglosses!!

  13. I’ve just seen your swatches on the pigments you’re wearing on your eyes and thought I’d pass, but now I start doubting! I love this eye/lip combo on you, especially the last one!

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Barbie Barbie

    i never ever want to try mac’s lipglosses

  15. Amy Huang

    These are so pretty! Especially Kiss Don’t Tell!
    And Christine I think you accidentally put Get Rich Quick lipglass in the last photo for Kiss Don’t Tell! :)

  16. Kiss Don’t Tell looks amazing on you! But for me, I think I prefer Get Rich. Overall, this set is a(nother) pass for me. :/ Ive been feeling a bit unimpressed with these collections lately

  17. tea-chan

    lol, how sad that the holiday kits’ Dazzleglasses have more gloss in them than the permanent ones. XD They do look lovely, though. I’m not a lipgloss girl but Kiss Don’t Tell looks really good from here.

  18. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Melissa divinem (Melissa)

    Christine- is the packaging plastic or cardboard? It’s difficult to tell by the pictures. It looks to me like it’s cardboard.

  19. Get Rich Quick looks very nice on you! I think this is the nicest set!

  20. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Denise S. Denise

    Great value since they are larger than usual. I love playing up my eyes and more frequently I’ve been wearing pretty lipgloss as opposed to lipsticks. I’ll probably pick these up! At the very least I can wear them over some of my lipsticks.

  21. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Pamela Pamela

    I’d say Kiss Don’t Tell is similar to my beloved Krazy Kahuna. What do you say, Christine?

    I love how when you do swatches of lipsticks and lipglosses, you take a picture of your full face. By seeing a picture of your face we can get a better idea of how it will look on us. I see people doing swatches on their arm or a close up of the product on their lips but it does not help me in anyway. Thank you for taking the time to do all of this because I know it takes a long time. I and I know a lot of your followers really appreciate it.

    wow, what strikes me the most about these pictures is how gorgeous your eye makeup looks! :) I’d love for you to show us how you did it! :)

  24. HautePJ

    Your makeup looks gorgeous! Is Kiss Don’t Tell anything like Over Indulgence?
