The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.
Edit: Superglass hits stores today, and I’ll be there as soon as my store opens to grab the remaining shades to swatch and review — just give me some time to get everything done Take a look at these shades in the meanwhile!
Yesterday, I posted some quick photos and swatches of four shades of MAC Superglass. Superglass will debut on May 6th, but some readers have commented they’ve been able to try/purchase them already, so maybe you’ll get lucky at your local store. Each will retail for $18 and contains 0.15 oz.
There are nine shades and all of them are limited edition: Cherry Electric (bright cherry pink), Disco Blend (light tan), Fab Frenzy (deep blue purple), Gift Wrap (light pinky peach), Sugar Overload (white beige), Superflash! (mid-tone yellow pink), Sweet Tart (baby pale pink), Totally Bang! (fuchsia), and Tunnel of Love (deep blue brown).
The formula is thick and sticky, but the glitter never felt gritty to me, even five hours later. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t feel much grittiness, but I think when these fade entirely, there may be a little texture to the glitter. Because it is pretty thick and sticky, the glosses last quite awhile on my lips. I slicked on Sweet Tart around 6 PM, and it was still lingering at 11 PM. It wasn’t quite as glossy as it was initially, but it still looked glossy and shimmery. The glitter seemed to stay in place, and none of it migrated to the outer edges of my lips, so all in all, it fades nicely. Oh, and did I mention I ate dinner with it on? Oh, yeah.
MAC Superglass: Disco Blend, Sugar Overload, Sweet Tart, Tunnel of Love
Sneak Peek: MAC Superglass Collection
Edit: I will have photos and swatches of the missing shades after I have a chance to purchase, swatch, photograph, etc. them tomorrow, when they launch in-stores, so I ask you to give me some time, but they will be up as soon as humanly possible, I swear
Ironically, after writing up my Pret-a-Papier review, some PR samples from MAC arrived, and included were four shades of the upcoming Superglass. I figured I’d give you guys a quick & dirty sneak peek of the shades and swatches, but I’ll do lip swatches tomorrow (hopefully!) along with a review (will be testing it tonight and tomorrow!).
Preliminary thoughts: very thick, quite sticky, doesn’t feel gritty, colors are quite sheer, glitter is large and more like flecks than shimmer. Full review to come… give me time to test ’em out
