Perk Up Your Winter with MAC’s New Lipgloss

MAC Perky Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone shimmering lilac.” It’s a light-medium lilac purple with lighter lilac and multi-colored shimmer. On my lips, it adds a light lavender color but it’s the multitude of shimmer that really stands out. MAC Docile is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Gone Romancin’ is lighter and more tinted. MAC Frozen Dream has less shimmer.

This is the third gloss from MAC’s Taste Temptation Collection, which launched online this week and will hit stores and counters this Thursday.  It’s a semi-sheer gloss that adds a lot of shimmer, as the base color is fairly sheer.  The base color lightens my natural lip color with a light milkiness that’s tinted lilac. Lipglass is one of those formulas that runs from sheer to opaque and everything in-between. The consistency was a little thinner than the average Lipglass, though it was still tacky.  It was also vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.  This shade lasted three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

The Glossover



The multi-colored shimmer makes it a great layering shade, and because there is so much shimmer, it can be worn on its own and doesn't look like just any ol' sheer gloss with shimmer.

  1. Oooh I like this! I usually don’t ever look twice at lavender/lilac glosses but this one is actually quite wearable! I like that it’s just a touch of color and lots of fun sparkle!! 😀 Would be cute for spring!

  2. Pame

    it looks like my water shine liquid diamonds from maybelline in the color berry stars, i think ill pass this one

  3. Stephanie TP

    if this ends up being like my beloved, yet discontinued little vi i might have to purchase backups!!

    I actually really like this, and I didn’t think I would. I don’t think I’ll buy it because I don’t like sticky lipgloss, but I do like the way it looks.

  5. I looked at this and my first thought was “Unicorns!”

    Was it made BY a unicorn, FOR a unicorn WITH a unicorn? ….I don’t know but I mean it in a good way though because I like it!

  6. Jillian

    Oooooh, between this and Nicki Minaj’s new Viva Glam 2 lipglass, my lavendar/lilac lipgloss prayers have been answered!

  7. April

    This is amazing! Any idea how it compares to MAC Nico lipglass? Or Morning Glory lustreglass?

  8. I love this! I will definitely be checking this out.

  9. Nathalie

    I like it, but I wish it was more pigmented.

    Christine, this might be an odd question, but I love how the color shows up on the applicator, and I have been looking for an eyeshadow of the same color. Would you (or anyone else) know of an eye shadow that’s similar? Thanks.

    I can’t believe that this collection won’t be released in the UK.
    I want this lipglass soooo bad :(

  11. Alena N.

    I loooove this sheer fairydust effect!

  12. Heather

    Omg I love the way this looks. Christine could you give me a better idea of how tacky this is? i really hate tacky lipglosses. I have Urban Decay’s lip junkies and I like them but Bare Minerals lipglosses gag me.

  13. Pami

    Oooh, that beautiful color makes me swoon!

  14. Melissa C

    I really love the look of this color from your swatches. I was just at my standalone MAC store…they didnt have this collection set-up. But, i found the tester in with all the other lip glass. When I asked to get one to buy they told me it won’t be for sale until 12/22…I was so sad! Has anyone been able to purchase this in store??
