MAC Stay Sweet Lipglass
MAC Stay Sweet Lipglass

MAC Stay Sweet Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light lavender pink.” It’s a pale, milky pink with cool undertones and a creamy finish. MAC Pink Fade is a smidgen purpler but very close. MAC Long Love Love is bluer-based and pinker. MAC The Wee Coquette is lighter. MAC Good Times is whiter, less pink. For whatever reason, MAC really likes their milky pinks!

Not surprisingly, it settles into lip lines quite a bit. It spreads and applies more evenly than other similar-colored glosses, though. The consistency is on the thicker side and is tacky, so one of the unfortunate results of that is that if you press your lips together, you’ll see a raised line of color.  I just wrapped up testing this shade about an hour ago, and it wore for three and a half hours.  This is definitely one of the better-performing variations on milky pink I’ve seen, though, so if it’s the kind of color you like, it may still be worth checking out.  It is also better layered over something more opaque, so then it will not settle as much.

    is it close to viva glam gaga gloss at all? THX!

  2. Dani

    I’m so glad I passed on this….I do not like those swatches or how it looks on AT ALL. You are right about MAC and their milky pinks…I’m over it.

  3. Brynn

    How would you say this color compares to the Viva Glam Gaga gloss or the snob gloss? Those are my two favourites.. so wondering if I should grab this.

    I really hate how all light pink lipglasses settle into lip lines :/

  5. This reminds me of a Smashbox lip gloss I have (forgot the specific name of it), except it’s not sticky at all. It’s milky and nearly the same color though.

  6. Dawn

    Sooo not a fan of these milky colours.

    Christine, Would you say this is similar to Viva Gaga lipglass?

  8. Alejandra

    Christine, this looks beautiful on you!
    I have a question.. I just lost my Underage lipglass and want to get another one but when I saw this one I was debating on picking it up, or Nars Turkish Delight.
    Which one do you think is the best?

    It does seem to settle a LOT less than comparable shades. I have this in my cart, still thinking if I will get it. Can you think of any comparable shades that perform better? Also, is it stickier/more tacky than MAC’s standard lipglass formula? Please take your time replying, we all want to see more Archie’s Girls!!

    • I can’t! When I looked for dupes, I couldn’t even think of other brands that really do the milky pink thing like MAC does. It’s on par with Lipglass – not any tackier than usual!

        Thanks! Yeah MAC really do it to death, don’t they. I think I’ll take it OUT of my cart, and try it on in person before I buy!

  10. Trucco used to do an amazing milky pink! That was ages ago though. I think I’ll need to try this one. Although it seems to settle up close, it looks great from afar.
