MAC Liquid Passion Lipglass
MAC Liquid Passion Lipglass

MAC Temperature Rising Lipglasses ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) come in four shades: Liquid Passion (creamy nude), Rhythm (vivid magenta violet with pearl), Soft Serenade (mid-tone neutral pink with pearl), and Underdressed (bronze plum with multidimensional pearls).

Liquid Passion is a warm-toned, medium peach with beige and has a creamy finish. It has mostly opaque color payoff, but it does settle into lip lines somewhat–it is surprisingly even for this kind of color and finish, though. This shade lasted three and a half hours on me. MAC Peachstock is similar but thicker, glossier. MAC Naked Space is shimmery and more yellow-beige in tone. MAC Ready or Not! is a touch darker.

Rhythm is a magenta-fuchsia with fine shimmer and sparkle. It mostly tints the lips pink and adds some sparkle. I can see this working well as a quick and easy go-to gloss during the summer. The shimmer is very fine but still has a lot of sparkle. This shade wore well for four hours. MAC Astral is more opaque. Benefit Kiss You is similar in color but not shimmery. Burberry Hibiscus is darker, less shimmer. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet is cooler-toned. MAC Aleydis is cooler-toned, more fuchsia. Urban Decay Jilted is similar but has fuchsia shimmer.

Soft Serenade is a soft beige-brown with beige shimmer and sparkle. It has semi-sheer color payoff and evens out my lip color while adding warmth and shimmer. It lasted four hours on me when I wore it. MAC Deliciously Demure is lighter, more frosted. Bobbi Brown Becah is darker, browner. Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather is also browner.

Underdressed is a darkened brown with a hint of plum and gold and copper sparkle/shimmer. This is the sparkliest of the four, and I think it’s the prettiest on. It’s semi-sheer with lots of shimmer, and the base color darkens the natural lip color but doesn’t cover it. This gloss lasted just over four hours on me when I tested it for wear. Dior Ambre Lumiere has much finer shimmer but is close. MAC Spree is cooler-toned. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noir is sheerer, less brown.

With the exception of Liquid Passion, the consistency of these seemed thinner, not quite as thick as normal Lipglass. They had finer shimmer, too, and didn’t appear as frosted on the lips. I didn’t feel any grit to the sparkle, either, even as they wore away. I actually see them being big hits for anyone who likes the Lipglass formula (because it is rather tacky, which is a deal-breaker for some) as a sparkling lip color for summer. They performed much like Lipglass in terms of wear; they lasted about average and were neither hydrating nor drying.

    I was scrolling through and not really feeling of these… but then I saw Undressed and I thought “How pretty!!’

  2. Erika

    Great swatches! How do Lipglasses compare wih Benefit Ultra Shines Lip Shine? Thanks!

    • Ohh, totally different in texture. Even these, though not as thick as regular Lipglass, are still on the thicker side and sticky!

      • Erika

        Oooh.. Thanks for your response! I was wondering if they’re similar. I love the texture of Ultra Shines! But the scent is too strong sometimes. Do you like the Ultra Shines?

  3. Is Rhythm similar to Mall Madness from Archie Girls?

  4. fabiola

    I like them all. Christine, how do you compare rhythm with revenge is sweet. I missed the repromoted one, and I wonder if this one will do. Thank you Christine.

  5. I think Soft Serenade and Underdressed look real pretty!

  6. Lisa

    Liquid passion looks great. I’m disappointed by how sheer rhythm is.

  7. DevilishDoll

    This is what I was so impatiently waiting for! I NEED Rhythm, Soft Serenade and Underdressed. Might get Liquid Passion too, but I’m not completely sure how it will look on me, I guess if it’s too warm, I can layer it over a pink lipstick or something.

  8. Underdressed looks lovely, both on the tube and on you, Christine. :) I might have to pick that one up as well.

  9. Avatar of Ann Ann

    IDK maybe it’s just me but I kind of get weirded out by a lot of visible sparkles. I’d rather see it on my eyes, not my lips…

  10. Treefinger

    Underdressed is nice. Rhythm looks amazing in the bottle… a bit of a disappointment but I suppose it’s meant to be sheer and you can still get stuff like funtabulous and ban this on the internet which are more pigmented :)

  11. Rhythm is cute, but I was hoping it would be more vibrant on.

  12. wow, thanks for the comparison…interesting shades..I really like the Soft Serenade, very natural color, and it looks very pretty on you, Christine!

  13. Hi Christine, Can Rhythm be built up to look as vivid on the lips as it appears in the tube?? Your review says it seems thinner than normal. If not, so disappointing…. that was the main reason I wanted it. Although, I am around NW43 with pigmented lips so perhaps it will appear darker on me? Thanks in advance!

    • I don’t think you could :( It’s just a sheerer gloss! If your natural lip color is darker, then it will seem more pigmented in a sense – you’re going to see whatever your natural lip color take over.

  14. Daisies

    Is it just me or does Rhythm look a bit uneven on the lips? I’m considering it as my only lip glass purchase from this collection even though I have Astral the sparkle in these glasses are irresistible!

  15. Jamie

    Christine, loving the new website! One question: does Underdressed leave a gritty sparkle behind after it wears?

  16. Megan

    Underdressed looks like it could be a dupe for Lorac Multiplex lip gloss in 3D!

    I had my eyes on Rhythm but the swatch is sheerer than I’d hoped for…still on the fence. Thanks for the swatches as always!

  17. auroragyps

    Underdressed is really pretty, but I’m not sure I like it on it’s own. The base is just a tad too sheer I think. I bet it would look really nice over a pale or sheer peachy copper lipstick… one that gives the gloss just a bit of color under it.

  18. Grace

    I haven’t seen a MAC collection I love this much in a long time! These were due! Can’t wait to buy them all!

  19. Ive never tried a lipglass because people always say they’re sticky and I cannot stand when lip glosses are sticky! I wish they weren’t I would totally buy Undressed, its gorgeous!!

  20. Emma

    Lovely swatches, Christine, and congrats on the new format and capabilities of the website!! I think you’re definitely one of the strongest pioneers in beauty blogging.
    Do you think Underdressed is comparable to Illamasqua Opulent? Thanks!

  21. Carla

    I love your reviews and swatches! Really helpful.

    I bought Soft Serenade and I really like how it looks on top of Shy Girl — it’s the perfect summery nude color for me. Do you know of a good dupe for Soft Serenade? I love it so much that it’s bugging me that it’s LE:-(

    • Soft Serenade is a soft beige-brown with beige shimmer and sparkle. It has semi-sheer color payoff and evens out my lip color while adding warmth and shimmer. It lasted four hours on me when I wore it. MAC Deliciously Demure is lighter, more frosted. Bobbi Brown Becah is darker, browner. Bobbi Brown Bronzed Heather is also browner.

    How does Liquid Passion compare to Fashion Whim? Thanks!
