MAC Sultry Iced Delights Lip Bag

MAC Ice Parade: Sultry Iced Delights Lip Bag

MAC Sultry Iced Delights Lip Bag ($38.00) includes three full-sized lip products: Deelight (mid-tone neutral), I Love Winter (passion fruit), and Boldly Bare (dirty red brown). I’m not sure how they managed it, but the lip pencil is listed as 0.05 oz., which is full-sized!

  • Deelight is a fleshy pink with semi-sheer color; it mostly gives my lips a pinker, lusher look overall without a lot of color. This is part of the permanent range.
  • I Love Winter is a medium-dark pink with a hint of coral (just the barest amount!) with opaque color coverage. It has a cremesheen finish, which I do find to be a little drying and less creamy. Chanel Empire is brighter and more vibrant. Giorgio Armani #507 is a touch lighter. MAC Mehr is less glossy and a bit lighter.
  • Boldly Bare is a orange-toned neutral brown.

The value of the the smaller kits is good–you get three full-sized lip products (~$42), so you’re getting more than what you’d receive if you purchased them individually (assuming you could). The Cremesheen Glass formula is not very long-wearing (two hours or so with a shade like Deelight), while the Cremesheen lipstick formula is a bit drying and doesn’t have as much glide as is ideal.

The Glossover


I Love Winter

Cremesheens tend to be drying on me, so the formula doesn't get the highest marks from my experience. I wish Cremesheen Glasses had better staying power, but they seem to disappear within two hours usually.

    Wow, Christine does anything ever look bad on you? I’m jealouse!

    Thank you for doing these, I always wait for your swatches and reviews before I purchase anything.

  2. Kira

    I just purchased this and it’s a very natural lip colour, at least on me, and I absolutely love it! :)

  3. Zara

    I love winter is gorgeous!! Christine what r u wearing on ur cheeks and face? They look so glowy and dewy! Do u fill in ur brows! Wish this lipstick was sold separately!

  4. Cremesheen is actually my favorite formula from MAC and I like the colors here. I may have to get this one!

  5. ana

    love this bare color. christine you are glowing! your skin, YOU, look amazing : )

  6. L

    The colors are so prett! 😀 Too bad I don’t use lip pencils…

  7. Cindy

    Why isn’t that lipstick sold seperately? :( I don’t want/need the rest!

  8. Marina

    LOVE this lip bag! Especially the lipstick! This is definitely going on my Christmas list!

  9. Roo

    Cremesheens are the only MAC lipstick formula that I don’t find drying. I really like that colour and would buy it if it were available separately. Cremesheen glosses last less than an hour on me and that lip pencil is too warm to go with the rest of the set.

    • Melody

      I agree about the lip pencil. I got a MAC set earlier with a very pale pink lip color and then this mahogany brown lip pencil. When worn together they make me look like I stepped out of the 90’s, although I think that’s coming back around.

  10. Absolutely gorgeous.I love Mac. I’ll be adding these to my Xmas list.

  11. Ooh! I Love Winter is such a nice pink! Ah I may have to throw this set onto the list.

  12. elizabeth

    when i saw the promo photos for this collection i was waiting really long for the i love winter lipstick and im quite dissapointed i have to say… i have been waiting for a lipstick more *long pause* … like sth more special :\

  13. Allie

    Wasn’t planning on it, but I picked this up today! I’m a darker skintone (9.0 in MAC Matchmaster), and this comes out pinker than I thought it would. It’s still lovely though.

    Is the lip pencil really full-sized? O_O; Because I bought my first reg. one in Cork, and side-by-side this one is like half the normal size, if not less.

    • According to the back of the box, the pencil is 0.05 oz. I checked multiple times before writing the review!

      • Kira

        I have the box as well and it says 0.05oz. But is the regular lip pencil really that tiny? Because it looks a lot longer on the MAC website… o_o

        • Yep, it is! Most pencil eyeliners/lipliners are around 0.04 oz. actually! :) I did, however, go to and looked at “Lip Pencils” last night, which says 0.05 oz.!

  14. Hilary♥

    That lipstick is to die for!!! I hate that it’s limited edition because it’s the only thing I would get from this kit.

  15. Lulee

    Does anyone actually think this bag is pretty? Talk about childish and tacky!!!

  16. Nadia

    I don’t mind the cremesheen formula in listicks. I Love Winter looks very very pretty. But I’m banning MAC currently. I have wanted the GA #507 for ages so it’s good to know it’s similar! I’ll probably pick that up instead.

  17. Carrie Ann

    I Love Winter is so pretty, but I already have Deelight and Boldly Bare. Otherwise, I’d be all over this set. It’s lovely.

  18. Melissa

    I wish you had swatched Boldly Bare on your lips :( I Love Winter looks great on you.

  19. Deelight looks pretty.

  20. I love winter does look a bit like Gem of Roses. Pretty!

  21. Chloe


    How similar is I Love Winter to Offshoot from the MAC Me Over Collection?

    Thanks =)

  22. elva

    bought it yesterday. yes, the color is quite similar to gems of roses but this one is lighter. love it, suits my skin tone.

  23. sugarbear

    i might get this one! :-)

  24. bettynova

    I LOVE LOVE the I LOVE Winter lipstick!!!

  25. Sass

    Doh! The lipstick is all I want out of this. Not buying it just for the lipstick though. Very pretty pink. Loves it!

  26. Melody

    I’m so sad! I swatched this last night hoping the lipstick would be a sort of counterpart to Deelight, because I love that color. But as usual, the lipstick turned orange on me. Darn my yellow undertones! I guess I’ll sniff around the perm line to find the lipstick that I wanted this one to be and pick up Deelight later.

  27. Kelly

    LOVE the lipstick.

  28. Jaymi

    Hey Christine, I was wondering if you were going to be reviewing the Iced Delights nail and lips bags.
    You are always beyond helpfully!

  29. Wenz

    Thanks to these swatches, I just picked up this set & its so GORG!!! Thanks again Christine!!

  30. Mandy

    i just want the lipstick..

  31. Alicia

    I’m not a lipgloss or lip pencil person, but I just love the lipstick. This is definitely going on my Christmas list.

  32. Joanna

    Do you know where I can purchase the I Love Winter Lipstick now that it’s not sold at the MAC counter?
