MAC Sassy Neutral Lassies Lipglass Sets
Lipglasses: Stealing Kisses, Girls at Play, Scottish Lilt, Bright & Perky, Spirits A’ Flying

MAC Tartan Tale Chapter 2: Sassy Neutral Lassies Lipglass Set

This year, MAC has released three different miniature lipglass sets. Each set contains five different shades of lipglass, each containing 0.08 oz. of product. Like the other sets from Chapter 2, they are housed in a metal tin that features the tartan pattern on the outside. They also have a plastic insert to keep the glosses standing up evenly within the tin, but it can be easily removed for more storage. Each set retails for $29.50.

Lipglasses are sheer to opaque in color, but they have a tackier, stickier texture. They are supposed to be vanilla-scented, but I did find a couple throughout the sets that smelled like plastic. These have the same sponge-tipped applicators that full-sized lipglasses have, but it seems less spongy and less gloss is pulled through on each pass (not necessarily a bad thing there!).

This set includes: Bright & Perky (classic bronze), Girls at Play (plummy brown), Scottish Lilt (peachy beige), Spirits A’ Flying (pale gold), and Stealing Kisses (glossing spice).

  • Bright & Perky is a semi-sheer, orange-toned brown with orange-gold shimmer.  It seems rather similar to Ornamental (lipglass).
  • Girls at Play is a semi-sheer darkened red with a heavy hit of gold shimmer. It’s a redder version of Pret-a-Papier (from Pret-a-Papier). It’s also the lipglass version of Baron’s Rose and Fun Bathing lipsticks. I would like it more if it didn’t apply so splotchily.
  • Scottish Lilt is a semi-opaque, milky, pale, fleshy beige. It’s similar to C-Thru, but it lacks the red flecks.
  • Spirits A’ Flying is a sheer milky peach gloss base (very sheer!) with tangerine shimmer. It’s a weaker version of Kumquat (from Spring Colour Forecast).
  • Stealing Kisses is a semi-opaque, creamy muted tangerine-brown with white micro-shimmer. It’s similar to Entice, but it’s more orange.

A normal lipglass contains 0.17 oz. of product and retails for $14.50. In this set, you’ll receive 0.40 oz. worth of lipglass for $29.50. This works out to be $85.29/oz. for an individual [full-sized] lipglass and $73.75/oz. for the lipglass set. It’s also worth pointing out that for the price of two full-sized shades, you’ll have five shades to choose from. If you’re someone who doesn’t stick with one gloss long enough to finish, the sets will be more worthwhile for you.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: The glosses, on the whole, are definitely neutral tones, and they’re even neutral colors.  I’m not really pulled either direction with these, as I think they’ll work for a variety of people, but nothing really jumps out at me either.

AVAILABILITY: MAC Cosmetics (November 4th/11th — check your local store for availability)

    The colors are more interesting than I thought they’d be. I might consider this one.

      Same here, I am not a fan of neutrals but these deliver a nice punch of color. I think I’m down for this one!

  2. Air

    i dont like it :( its very heartbreaking that it didn’t come with any lustreglass (lipglass is kinda sticky and splotchy to me). And why is everything so red/orange? this was the only thing i was going to get in the collection, but now since I’m not thrilled i guess I will be saving money. Sad thing is I won’t be able to have the cute packaging lol

    Scottish Lilt reminds me of Mouthwatering (from the 08 holiday collection) more than C-thru though.

  3. Air

    also, this looks more coral than the coral set lol

  4. Kerry

    Ooh! Girls at Play is so pretty!

  5. Avatar of KY Kaoyee

    whewww…I’m glad i don’t like any of the colors in this one!

  6. Promise

    Dang. I kinda want this now. lol

  7. Tiffany

    The only one I like is Spirits A’ Flying… so skipping it.

  8. Molly

    I can see Girl’s at Play going well with Baron’s Rose possibly. nothing from this entire launch stands out for me unfortunately.

  9. All the shades are beautiful but the Spirits A’ Flying is particulary gorgeous !

  10. mo

    that orange color is giving me life

  11. sonjiya

    christine! thank you so much for reviewing these right before i think to buy them :) i’m so glad i saw this, although i’m kinda bummed! why so much orange in the neutrals? lol after saying that i’ll prolly still get them :P thank you for the awesome swatches!

  12. grace

    your eye makeup here is beautiful!

  13. Caroline

    Girls at play is really your shade!

  14. Carly F

    I thought I would want the Corals kit over any of them and then I’d maybe pick up the Pinks as well. I didn’t even consider this neutral, but thanks to these posts I’m definitely picking up the Neutrals and I think the Corals kit is the one I like the least. Thanks for taking the time to do these Christine! It really helps me make better buying decisions.

  15. Jenny

    I don´t see any neutrals here, they seem to be more warm than anything else

  16. Avatar of Alannah Alannah

    Ooh, Girls at Play is really pretty! I can’t wear these shades though… they’d look awful on me!

  17. Shay

    I picked this up today and i’m so glad. All of these colors are perfect for me. I’m brownskinned and these warm, orangey colors are awesome in a way that the coral set would have been to bright and pinkish for my taste.

  18. kerry

    thanks for the pics on your lips! I picked up the neutral lippie set….awesome colors! not impressed by the pigment sets this year..nothing special

  19. Little Miss Sunshine

    Girls at Play is a real eyecatcher. I would pretty much like to buy this as a single item. As I’m not interested in any of the other colors I probably won’t get this set.

    • Jenn

      I COMPLETELY agree with you!
      I’m not used to wearing very bold lip colors, but this shade just looks right. I am obsessed with it! I also find that it is flattering for most people.

      Definitly will try to hunt down another “Girls At Play”.

      I do like the entire set, too.
      The one I don’t particularly care for is “Stealing Kisses”. It’s just too odd. It’s not bold, it’s not too neutral. …..and it borders on orangey. Just not flattering on my skin.

  20. Jywoi

    I love Spirits A’ Flying, do you know a closer dupe (with less orange than Kumquat :)
    I also like two others (the first ones) so I guess I’ll be skipping it.
    Thank you for the swatches!

  21. Joy

    I really love Spirits A Flying. Does anyone know a good dupe?

  22. Ashley

    I was wondering what eyeliner you were using in these photos. It’s gorgeous!
