New and limited edition, MAC Dare to Wear Lipglasses ($18.00 for 0.17 oz.) are like more pigmented, more refined dazzleglasses. They’re much smoother than dazzleglasses, even as they wear down–the shimmer is incredibly fine to the point where I couldn’t feel it at all when I smooshed my lips together. These are tacky, though; they are not quite as sticky as traditional Lipglass, but my lips do stick a good bit when I press them together. Like other MAC lip products, these have their signature vanilla scent as well.
The formula feels creamy, slick, and thin when worn. It’s not a heavy or thick gloss–not like Lipglass in terms of texture at all. It takes several passes to get enough product to cover the lips though; I found that not enough product was coming through the tube as I pulled out the wand. The majority of these weren’t fully opaque; they were certainly close to it, but not quite there. I do like that they’re a mix of shimmer and rich color, because it makes it a nice two-in-one product. You don’t have to worry about using a separate lip brush to apply a light, shimmered gloss on top of your wicked pigmented lipstick with these.
When worn by itself, it wears well–I had three hours and going strong, and then I had a creamy pasta dish for lunch. I’d say 40% made it through lunch — not bad. You could get away without touching up, but a touch up would still be needed, ideally.
