MAC Lipglass — Bright Side, Lots of Laughs, Live It Up, Carousel, Pure Silliness

The MAC Playland Collection includes five new and limited edition shades of MAC LipglassApril 10th April 15th (MAC corporate confirmed as of 4/10 8:26AM PST) and in-stores and at counter on April 17th.

Bright Side is described as a “creamy yellow.” It’s a medium, warm-toned yellow with white pearl. It’s semi-sheer, so when applied to my lips, my natural lip color makes it so it ends up looking like a yellow-peach. It didn’t apply evenly, though, and it tended to settle into lip lines. It wore well for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. I wasn’t able to think of any dupes for this one!

Carousel is described as a “creamy pink.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned pink with a creamy, milky finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but I really wished it had applied evenly! The thickness of Lipglass seems to make these creamy, milky shades a total pain in the behind to apply. It lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Patentpink (LE, $20.00) is less glossy. MAC Long Love Love (P, $19.50) is cooler-toned. MAC Saint Germain (LE, $15.00) is purpler. MAC Going Casual (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Live It Up is described as a “creamy orange.” It’s a light-medium, milky orange with a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and this shade actually applied fairly evenly, though it wasn’t perfect. It wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Glistening Amber (055) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, sheerer, lighter. Chanel Envolee (427) (LE, $29.50) is lighter, sheerer. MAC Imperial Light (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Lots of Laughs is described as a “creamy peach.” It’s a light-medium, neutral-to-cool-toned pink with a creamy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and it applied so-so–a little unevenly, some settling into lip lines. It lasted for four hours on me, though, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $20.00) is sheerer, darker.Revlon Bejeweled (P, $7.49) is sheerer. Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Picture Pink (LE, $15.00) is slightly lighter, cooler-toned. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $19.00) is sheerer. MAC Infinitely Likeable (P, $19.50) is cooler-toned. MAC Stay Sweet (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Angel (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Pagoda (LE, $20.00) is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Pure Silliness is described as a “creamy lilac.” It’s a cool-toned, light-medium pink-purple with a creamy, glossy finish. It applied terribly unevenly, though it had semi-opaque color coverage. The color wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Patentpink (LE, $20.00) is lighter. NARS Coeur Sucre (P, $26.00) is more shimmery. MAC Saint Germain (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter.MAC Pink Nouveau (LE, $15.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
