MAC Strawberry Malt Lipglass
MAC Strawberry Malt Lipglass

MAC Strawberry Malt Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright red.” It’s a pinky-red with cool undertones with no shimmer. MAC Cult of Cherry is darker and has ruby shimmer. MAC Send Me Sailing is redder. MAC Wicked Ways is a touch redder. NARS Strawberry Fields is pinker.

It has mostly opaque color coverage with a subtle translucency that gives it a very juicy, almost jelly-like, finish. It also seemed extra glossy compared to other shades in the Lipglass family. I didn’t have any problems with this feathering or bleeding on me when I wore it.  This will definitely pair well with Ronnie Red and give it a really rich, glossy look.  Strawberry Malt wore for four hours well.  The texture and consistency were as expected for Lipglass, which is a thicker consistency and tackier texture than the average gloss.

    Gaaah this is such a cool color! Definitely gonna try to get it! I’m guessing it’s a lot brighter and pinker than MAC’s “Venetian”, which will be amazing for summer!

    Debating getting this or another lipstick. This collection is driving me crazy with things to pick out. Hmm

  3. Jules

    Can you swatch it on top of the Ronnie Red lipstick so we can see?

  4. Angie

    This is the only thing I ordered from the Archie collection. I can’t wait for it to get here. I may pick up another one in store.

  5. I must’ve lucked out, because this was the only lipglass I purchased from the collection and it looks like it’s the best one!

  6. This was one of the few Veronica Lodge colours I didn’t get. Now that I see your pretty swatches, I’m tempted to get it! :)

  7. Vivian

    I’ve got Wicked Ways, you think I should skip this??

  8. Lolly

    This is definitely what the Veronica model is wearing for the promo pictures. How pretty!

    I had to get this lipglass after seeing how great it looks!! thanks for such prompt reviews!!

  10. Miss J

    How similar to NARS’ Strawberry Fields would you say this is on a percentage scale? 90-95% similar? Or more or less than that?

  11. Stephanie

    Do you wear lipliner with lipglass?

  12. Alyssa

    Ah I’m so happy I took a chance and ordered this before you had reviewed them! It’s such a great color!

    WOW this is so pretty! I so wasn’t expecting it to be so nice! Now I have to think if I get this or Kiss & Don’t Tell lipglass. I feel like I SHOULD get this, I don’t have any lipgloss quite like this one!

    Out of all the products I’ve seen from this line, this is the only one I want so far. It looks more watermelon than strawberry to me, but it’s so pretty all the same

    I love this shade on you, looks gorgeous! It is nice and glossy.

  16. Dorothy

    How does it compare to Impassioned lipglass?

  17. VickyM

    This is nice, a very Veronica color :D .

  18. Christina

    I was wondering how this compared to Mac Astral Creamsheen glass.

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Pamela Pamela

    I got my Archie Girls items today and fell in love with this. Tried it over Ronnie Red and it was so beautiful and glossy! My lips are fairly pigmented and on me, YSL Glossy Stain 13 was a pretty close match for the two together. But I love this alone too so I’ve got to pick up a backup!

  20. Kim

    Weird, I just got this in the mail today and my packaging has Betty on it! I know it’s silly, but I mainly ordered it b/c I wanted one of the Veronica products…I wonder if a lot of the packaging got mixed up?

  21. Sally

    Is the Archie’s Girls collection only available online or is it instore as well?

    Christine, I’m deciding between Russian Red and Strawberry Malt lipglass- the only other lipglass I have is Mall Madness and I bought that one to test out the texture. I did like it so I want to get another. I saw that you did a review of both, so I was just wondering, which one do you like better?

    • Russian Red is a bitter thicker, IMO – more like classic Lipglass, whereas Mall Madness is thinner (so Strawberry Malt will be a bit thinner, too).

        thanks for your prompt response :) I hadn’t heard about the texture being different anywhere else in the beauty blogosphere, so I will keep that in mind!
