MAC Naturally Lipglasses
MAC Naturally Lipglasses in Fresh Air, Hot Spell, Naked Space

MAC Naturally: Lipglasses

There are four limited edition shades of MAC Lipglasses ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) in the Naturally collection: Fresh Air (light pink), Hot Spell (bronze with multi-colored pearl), Naked Space (creamy mid-tone nude peach), and The Wee Coquette (naked neutral pink).

  • Fresh Air is a sheer light pink with white micro-shimmer. On my lips, it adds a touch of pink and lightens my natural lip color. It’s rather sheer, so it looks like a lot of sheer lipglosses. MAC Right Image is a bit pinker. Urban Decay Peroxide is similar in color but doesn’t have shimmer.
  • Hot Spell is a subtle, rusted brown with beige and gold shimmer. It has semi-opaque color coverage. MAC Spree is a bit less red and has a lot more shimmer. MAC Bright & Perky is a touch browner, sheerer, and has more copper shimmer.
  • Naked Space is a peach with off-white shimmer. The texture of this felt extra thick, even though Lipglass is already on the thick side, so it was difficult to apply it evenly. It just didn’t want to even out for me. It’s a little lighter compared to MAC Illicit.
  • The Wee Coquette is a milky, pale blue-based pink with white shimmer. It tends to settle into lip lines. This was just out in MAC Me Over, so I don’t know why they’ve brought it back so quickly (and why do they seem to bring back random products, rather than ones everyone fussed over?). It’s similar to MAC Enchantee.

MAC Lipglasses are thick and sticky, which means they have a tendency to last longer on lips (I usually get an average of four hours). The thicker texture doesn’t always work, though; in some of the lighter shades, this increases how likely the color is to settle into the natural lines on the lip and often makes it difficult to smooth out the gloss so it appears even in color. MAC Lipglasses are vanilla-scented but have no distinct taste. For whatever reason, Naked Space (which I just bought) smelled like plastic, which was odd but felt like I had to disclose that.

B
Fresh Air and Hot Spell apply the nicest, while Naked Space and The Wee Coquette tend to bunch up and look uneven on lips. Even if you are able to--by some miracle--make it appear even, the second you press your lips together, your work disappears.
