MAC Lavish Rose Lip Gloss Set
A Mix of Cool-Toned Glosses for the Holidays
MAC Lavish Rose Lip Gloss Set ($32.50) includes four shades: Demure (warm pink with blue pearl), Going Casual (no description), Colour Saturation (no description), and Boys Go Crazy (deep amethyst).
Each Dazzleglass contains 0.09 oz., while each Dazzleglass Creme/Cremesheen Glass contains 0.07 oz. Of all MAC’s holiday products, their lipgloss sets are one of the best in terms of value. The Dazzleglasses in the kits are larger (in quantity) than the full-sized versions. In this set, there is $29.25 worth of Dazzleglass, $34.13 worth of Cremesheen Glass, and $15.17 worth of Dazzleglass Creme, which is a total of $78.55 in lipgloss.
Demure is a pale, cool-toned milky pink with iridescent blue sparkle. It has semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage and some settling into lip lines, though the sparkle distracts from that. It wore for two hours on me. MAC Pagoda is darker. MAC Going Casual is similar but doesn’t have the same kind of shimmer–a little more pigmented. MAC Cultureclash is similar.
Going Casual is pale, blue-based cotton candy pink with very subtle shimmer. It is mostly a cream finish, and it was hard to apply it evenly–it had a tendency to slide over itself and create lines. This shade is a repromote. This shade wore two hours on me. MAC Long Love Love is more opaque, lighter. MAC Snob is lighter and cooler-toned. MAC Angel is warmer.
Colour Saturation is a rich red-berry with a creamy, glossy finish. It is semi-opaque and though some settles into lip lines, it is not noticeable. This is a repromote. This shade lasted three hours on me. MAC Galaxy Rose is softer. MAC Rebel is more berry and darker. Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant is similar, a little darker. MAC Indigo Pink is shimmery. NARS Bougainville is redder.
Boys Go Crazy is a semi-opaque purple-berry with purple, violet, and blue sparkle. It was a bit of a pain to apply evenly, and as soon as I pressed my lips together, it was uneven again. This shade is a repromote. This color lasted four hours on my lips. MAC Spanking Rich is a lot lighter and sheerer. MAC Flight of Fancy is much darker, redder.
All four glosses are vanilla-scented, but the Dazzleglasses have a brush-type applicator, while the Cremesheen Glasses have a doe-foot applicator. Cremesheen is a lighter-weight, non-sticky formula, while Dazzleglasses are thicker and have a tacky texture. Dazzleglasses tend to wear longer on me as compared to Cremesheen Glasses, which is a formula that is lucky to last two hours on me (I normally get three to four with glosses!)
