MAC Riveting Collection
Lipglasses: Rock Out, True Babe

MAC Riveting Collection: Lipglass Review, Photos, Swatches

Lucky for your pocketbook, there are only two lipglasses to take a look at from MAC’s Riveting Collection: Rock Out (officially described as a light icy silver with pearl) and True Babe (officially described as a creamy mid-tone bright blue pink). I don’t think neither are must-haves in the sense that unless you’re drawn to one of these and you don’t have something similar at home, you don’t absolutely have to have these too.

Lipglass ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)

  • Rock Out is a sheer, silver shimmered gloss with a very sheer, kind of whitish-silver color base. I didn’t find it all that wearable on its own, personally. It reminded me of an older limited edition lipglass–Lightning–as well as more recently released She-Zam dazzleglass (from holiday ’09). Obviously, since it’s a lipglass, it has a totally different texture and feel than a dazzleglass–it’s thicker, stickier, cheaper (and you get more), and lasts longer (because it’s stickier).
  • True Babe is a creamy, rich bright pink with cool blue undertones. It’s like a cooler, more fuchsia version of Pink Poodle lipglass. I can’t think of any immediate dupes off the top of my head, but I know MAC has released quite a few hot pink lipglasses in the past few years. What’s nice about this one is that the coverage is nice and opaque, and despite its creamy look, it doesn’t settle into lip lines as much (and is not noticeable from normal viewing distance–aka, not 10x magnification of my lips!).

What do you think? Either of these for you?

  1. Pretty! Rock Out does remind me so much of my beloved She-Zam dazzleglass and I have two backups of them lol

    I am not a fan of the Lipglass formula at all, but holy crap I NEED True Babe. It looks so opaque and creamy… so, so pretty!

  15. True Babe is a True beautiful color! I adore this pink :)

  16. Carrie

    Wasn’t Rock Out the name of a really pretty Slimshine?

  17. amy

    True Babe is cute! I love hot pinks, but I have a lot of hot pink lippies.

  18. I like Rock Out but I will pass on it. Its not something that says OMG I must have it!

  19. Venessa

    Is True Babe similar in colour to Stila’s Lip Enamel Luxe Gloss in Giggle? Which one is brighter? Also, which one do you think is better overall?

  20. Tiffany

    definitely getting both of these!

  21. Rosanna

    True Babe is gorgeous and so opaque! But I prefer Lipsticks and these lipglosses usually make my lips a raspberry red because of my lip’s pigmentation.

  22. Dani

    Ooh True Babe is really nice! One of the best pinks on you that I’ve seen.

  23. I really like Rock Out :) do you think it is very similar to Pas-de-deux?

  32. Avatar of Kate kfm

    well, these may have dupes in other l/e collections or in the regular line, i don’t have those, so i figured i’d take a chance on both… first time i’ve ordered on line

  33. True Babe Looks like Pink Poodle just a tad bit brighter.

    • ci

      i wonder if True Babe is going to be similar to Loud & Lovely coming out with “Too Fabulous” collection…what do you think? i’m so torn ! I want a bright pink gloss , but not a “bold” one…maybe I’ll wait for the new cremesheen glasses!

  34. Trisha Mae!

    Hey Christine! Do you think the color of True Babe can compare to the color of the lipstick in Pink Nouveau?

  35. Cat

    I loved True Babe… is that part of the permanent collection or should I buy a back-up?
