MAC Surf Baby Lipglasses

MAC Surf Baby Lipglases ($15.50 for 0.17 oz.) include four shades: Girl on Board (pale white gold), Good Lovin’ (soft peachy pink), Krazy Kahuna (warm mid-tone brown), and Strange Potion (soft coral pink).

MAC Lipglasses are vanilla-scented but taste-free. They are sticky glosses (some of the stickiest on the market) with a thicker consistency than your typical gloss, but they do wear a solid four hours on me as a result of the tackier formula. Pigmentation ranges from sheer to opaque, but all three of these shades are more pigmented than the average lipglass–even Girl on Board, which is more shimmer than color, covers my natural lip color a good deal.

MAC Lipstick

MAC Surf Baby Lipstick ($15.50 for 0.10 oz.) includes four shades: Bust Out! (dirty mid-tone violet), Hibiscus (bright orange coral), Mocha (peachy yellow-brown), and Naturally Eccentric (creamy white nude). Mocha is permanent and Naturally Eccentric (Naturally Eccentric, ’05) is a repromote.

MAC lipsticks are vanilla scented but taste-free. Lustre finishes, like Bust Out! and Naturally Eccentric, are designed to be sheer with a slightly glossy finish, so the pigmentation on both is as expected. Mocha, as a satin finish, is creamy and opaque, as it should be. I typically get two to three hours of wear out of lustre finishes, with four to five hours of wear out of satin finishes.

MAC Surf Baby Nail Lacquers

MAC Surf Baby Nail Lacquers

MAC Surf Baby is right around the corner–the full collection hits stores on May 26th (PRO stores should put it out a week earlier) and should start popping up online as early as the 23rd. There are two Nail Lacquers ($13.50 for 0.4 fl. oz.) coming out: Hangin’ Loose (dirty pink nude) and Ocean Dip (mid-tone creamy aqua).

my thoughts on the formula: MAC polishes always wear a full week for me, with no chipping, and minor tip wear.  The formula isn’t as consistent as I’d like, though, as some shades are thin, some thick, and a couple of them are watery.  Though recently I’ve had some issues with splayed applicators, both were perfect in these two bottles.
