MAC Sassy Pink Lassies Lipglass Set

MAC Sassy Pink Lassies Lipglass Sets

This year, MAC has released three different miniature lipglass sets. Each set contains five limited edition shades of lipglass, each containing 0.08 oz. of product. Like the other sets from Chapter 2, they are housed in a metal tin that features the tartan pattern on the outside. They also have a plastic insert to keep the glosses standing up evenly within the tin, but it can be easily removed for more storage. Each set retails for $29.50.

Lipglasses are sheer to opaque in color, but they have a tackier, stickier texture. They are supposed to be vanilla-scented, but I did find a couple throughout the sets that smelled like plastic. These have the same sponge-tipped applicators that full-sized lipglasses have, but it seems less spongy and less gloss is pulled through on each pass (not necessarily a bad thing there!).

This set includes: Electro Lush (medium mauve), Fab Fun (pale crystal pink), Frozen Dream (medium pink rose), Sassy Lassy (bright pink fuchsia), and The Wee Coquette (naked neutral pink).

A normal lipglass contains 0.17 oz. of product and retails for $14.50. In this set, you’ll receive 0.40 oz. worth of lipglass for $29.50. This works out to be $85.29/oz. for an individual [full-sized] lipglass and $73.75/oz. for the lipglass set. It’s also worth pointing out that for the price of two full-sized shades, you’ll have five shades to choose from. If you’re someone who doesn’t stick with one gloss long enough to finish, the sets will be more worthwhile for you.

These have the same sponge-tipped applicators that full-sized lipglasses have, but it seems less spongy and less gloss is pulled through on each pass (not necessarily a bad thing there!).  Wear time seems to be three to four hours on average, but some shades pull a little longer while others are shorter.

This set includes: Hearts-a-Beatin’ (pale raisin), Jest for Fun (peachy blossom pink), Mimmy (bright pink coral), Pretty Quick! (bright coral), and Tad Saucy (pale muted pink).

MAC Tartan Tale: Viva Glam, Sir Teddy, & Brush Sets

I filmed my Tartan Tale Kit/Sets review yesterday, and my throat was scratchy afterward, which had to mean I talked way too long–sure enough, I did! We ended up splitting the video into two parts. It worked out, though, because I spend half of this video on why Viva Glam (and Sir Teddy) are great charitable campaigns, and then the other half on a rant review on MAC’s brush sets.

For my written review and photos of the brush set, you can view it here. (Link to vote is here — I’m Christine Mielke.)

MAC Smoky Thrillseekers Pigments/Glitter Set

MAC Smoky Thrillseekers Pigments/Glitter Set

Each pigment/glitter set includes four pigments and one glitter, each contains 0.09 oz. of product, according to the tin. The five glass vials are housed inside a tartan-decorated metal tin, and there is a plastic insert that keeps them standing together, but it’s removable, should you desire. I did find it curious that there were no inserts regarding uses (e.g. what’s eye/lip safe) in any of the sets, though.

This set includes: Blue Brown (deep brown with frosted green/blue reflection), Dark Soul (charcoal black smoked with gold), Jigs & Jive (naked taupe), Naked (fleshy beige with golden copper pearl), and Reflects Blackened Red (sparkling burgundy).

I think the pigment sets are a good value, and they’re always worth a peek if you’re into loose color or pigments. You’re getting 0.45 oz. of product for $32.50, while a single, full-sized pigment contains 0.15 oz. of product and retails for $19.50–essentially, this is $60 worth of pigments/glitters.
