MAC Richly Revered Cremesheen Glass

MAC Semi-Precious Cremesheen Glass Swatches, Photos, Reviews

MAC Semi-Precious Cremesheen Glass ($18.50 for 0.08 oz.) includes five, limited edition shades: Geo Pink (strawberry pink), Looks Like Sin (mid-tone reddish plum), Natural Flare (light caramel nude), Pure Magnificence (light grey pink), and Richly Revered (deep brown plum).

  • Geo Pink is a semi-opaque, orange-coral with soft, white-pink shimmer. I really don’t get “strawberry pink” with this. It’s much brighter and more orange-based than anything else. I even double-checked, but it’s really this orange on me. It’s like a richer, deeper MAC Fold and Tuck and rather comparable to MAC So Bad.
  • Looks Like Sin is a sheer plum with a glossy sheen. This is a repromoted shade. I couldn’t think of dupes for this shade.
  • Natural Flare is a semi-opaque, medium-dark, peach brown with white shimmer. It’s darker than Burberry Cameo and more pigmented than MAC Utterly Posh. It has a similar, but lighter, color base to MAC Stealing Kisses, less orange than MAC Light That Fire, and less orange/red than MAC Kumquat.
  • Pure Magnificence is a sheer, milky pastel pink with a cool undertone.  I can see why MAC Described this as a “grey pink.” Urban Decay Peroxide is a little bluer-based but similar in overall look. MAC Boy Bait also seems like it would be rather similar to this.
  • Richly Revered is a semi-sheer, dark, vampy plum-red with a glossy shine. It is very similar to NARS Nana.

Cremesheen Glass is a formula that glides onto the lips easily, feels comfortable without being thin or thick, and tends to be on the sheerer side in color.  It’s non-sticky (as compared to Lipglass, which is very thick and sticky), and it typically wears two hours or so on me before wearing away.  They also tend to be creamier colors, rather than packed with shimmer, but that’s not quite the case here, as both Geo Pink and Natural Flare have plenty of shimmer.  I’m not a big fan of the price point/quantity of these–a mere 0.08 oz., whereas lipglass contains 0.17 oz.

These definitely seem like fall colors to me, which isn't a bad thing, as this is a fall collection. It was kind of weird to see such shimmered Cremesheen Glasses, too!

    I love the color of your eyeshadow in these swatches! What are you wearing, Christine?

  2. Carrie Ann

    I really like Geo Pink and Natural Flare. :)

  3. Marieke

    I absolutely LOVE Geo Pink, because it’s orange/coral and not pink 😉
    It reminds me of Revlon’s Coral Glow, which was also limited. I use that one all the time…

  4. Luka

    I think Natural Flare is the nicest lip color I’ve seen on you. It really works for you!

  5. claudia

    are the cremesheen glasses good to use over lipstick ???

  6. Jasmine

    Hey Christine! Do you think Revlon’s Coral Reef would be a dupe for Geo Pink? Also, I love your eyes! They look like a combination of brown and hazel :)

  7. Amanda A

    Christine, do you think Richly Revered would go well over the MAC Semi-Precious Musky Amethyst lipstick? Do you think if you layered them that the color would be a little more even?

  8. Maggie

    colors r not very attractive for my taste!

  9. Richly Revered is definitely a fall color!

  10. Krista

    The darkest one kindda reminded me of MAC’s Love Peck during the Peackocky collection but a little more purpley

  11. bxboricua

    OOOOOH I love the look of Geo Pink!

  12. Becca

    ugh, all of them with the exception of richly revered look sickly; pass -.-

    • Lilinah

      While some of these glosses may not be super terrific on their own, they will be GREAT layered with the lipsticks in this collection and enhancing them. I know sometimes i planned to pass on glosses in other collections, but found they coordinated perfectly with the lipsticks. There’s definitely a one-on-one with these (except the fifth, Pure Magnificence, not shown here): Natural Flare with Lush Amber (peachy brown/tans); Geo Pink with Gem of Roses (rosy corals); Looks Like Sin with One of a Kind (sheer plums); and Richly Revered with Musky Amethyst (deep plum reds). I’m more excited about the Semi-Precious E/S and MSF, but now that i see your swatches, Christine, i will definitely be testing the lip colors during pre-sale, too. (BTW, i am excitedly awaiting delivery of your Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow :-)

  13. Mina

    if you had to compare naturaly flare to a foundation color, what would it be? i think all the colors suit you u lucky duck ^^

  14. Piper

    Hmmph.. I might go for Natural Flare. The only thing in this horrid collection that looks good.

  15. zainub

    u have such pretty eyes… n whatever eye makeup u have on brings them out even more, STUNNNNING!!

  16. Carmela

    Hi! Is the formula of these comparable to the Dazzleglass Cremes?

  17. Laura R

    Natural Flare looks very close to Revlon’s Colorstay Lipgloss in Sunset Peach.
    I love the berry shades, repromotes or not. Come more quickly, fall!

  18. Ana G.

    Love Geo pink!!

  19. Ava

    Ooooh, Geo Pink and Natural Flare look like they have the same type of shimmer that Strange Potion Lipglass has. I’m going to have to check these out.

  20. Amanda

    Richly Revered is terrible. Glad the other 3 are much better. I would really only buy the Geo Pink though, as it seems it would make a fall version of Strange Potion.

  21. alex

    How does Richly Revered compare to Jam Packed or Desire?

  22. rebekah

    Christine Thank you so much for all your awsome reviews. You save me so much money.

  23. I tried Looks Like Sin at my local MAC counter yesterday…it’s the perfect shade of red/plum for my lips! It looks really lovely alone and AMAZING over lipstick! Thanks so much for the review of these, Christine…I’ve found a new favorite MAC product thanks to you.

  24. Nkem

    Please I want to buy the MAC Cremesheen Glass Lip gloss Richly Revered, I have the Looks like Sin. I want like a deep colour on my lips and Looks like sin isn’t deep enough would you suggest one. How would you say the Richly Revered is and what other products MAC or so that can give me that deep color in a gloss, it’s almost like MAC Rebel right?
