The new MAC Mineralize Glass Collection featured a new shade of gloss (Mineralize Glass) in twelve shades, plus six new shades of Mineralize Rich Lipstick. All eighteen shades will be joining the permanent line-up. The new gloss is less tacky than traditional Lipgloss, but thinner and stickier than Cremesheen Glass or Lustreglass. The color coverage is a little more than Cremesheen Glass, but the new gloss is semi-sheer in most cases and wears an average of three hours a pop. They’re lightly hydrating, smell of vanilla, and contain more product than most of MAC’s lipglosses. Some shades settled into lip lines or did not apply evenly, so those things really hurt the ratings. The Mineralize Rich Lipsticks were better, in general, and are a more buildable and pigmented formula with a luminous sheen and feel hydrating when worn.

  • TOO SIMILAR TO BUY ALL: Cheerful or Ray of Sunshine; Fashion Perk, New Love, or Vibrant Vibe; Got Style or Modern Romance; Lovingly Yours or Modest
  • MOST UNIQUE: Pure Pout
  • BEST PERFORMING: Be a Lady, Good Taste, So Good

  5. Great roundup! It’s a bit surprising to me that any makeup company would release such similar shades in the same LE collection (regarding the lip glasses).

    I normally stay away from fuchsia shades but Good Taste looks so lovely I think it (or a dupe) might be my first purchase in that color family.

    • I guess that’s the problem with 12… and when they’re sheerer, so even though they look different in the tubes, once applied, much more similar!

  6. Real lovely shades and I am in love with Pure Pout

  7. Overall, I agree with you! I wish MAC was cruelty free because I’d pick a few up!

  8. I love these lip colors, so pretty!

  9. I really like the new round up posts easily comparing all the shades. Thanks Christine!

  10. I am obsessing over So Good! It’s beautiful!!!

  11. I have Be A Lady, and seeing them all lined up like this makes me RRRREALLY happy that I got that one, because to me it really is the prettiest color out of the bunch :-)

  12. I am surprisingly really loving Ray of Sunshine. My favorite of the bunch is Bold Spring. Also, I’m loving the new “roundup” format.

    So thankful for the Temptalia roundups. It’s a great opportunity to get a look at all the shades together for comparison. Definitely one of my favourite Temptalia features. Thanks!!!

  14. I love these round ups for comparisons! Thanks for putting them together :-)

    Be a Lady and Be Nice are still my favourites – it’s a bit silly that they release so much redundancy in the glosses though? Maybe the difference is more radical if you have lips with very little natural pigment… Like me :-P

    I’ve never tried this particular formula, but I’m eyeing Pure Pout & Modest and/or Be Fabulous & Tender. At least these should be around for a while, so I’ll have a chance to mull it over!

    I brought the lipstick in So good and I love it. Pink reds are my favourite. I was going to buy a glass buf for $43 Australian I could not justify it.

  18. Priscilla

    When will be avaliable???

    Be a lady is a gorgeous shade.. <3
    also So Cheerful makes a lovely lip gloss for summers..

    Lovely Compilation.. it helps to sort out your favorites out of the whole range!! :)

  20. Bold spring and Good taste are right up my alley! I like seeing everything grouped together gives you a great estimation of the color ranges.

  21. goodness, these look absolutely pretty! <3

  23. OMG…these are some super gorgeous shades dear…these are so much on my lust list now…:-)

  24. I think Good Taste and So Good are the two that appeal to me the most, and they look amazing on you. The lip glasses aren’t even a blip on my radar because 1. I’m more of a lipstick girl, and 2. it seems like an outrageous price for something sheer.

  25. I honestly wish the lipsticks were true to their color. I fell in love with some, but once is watched it Ir ealized it was a mere infatuation
