MAC Me Over Lipglasses
MAC Me Over Lipglasses in Good Times, Illicit, Social Light, and The Wee Coquette

MAC Me Over: Lipglasses

There are seven shades of MAC Lipglass ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) launched with MAC Me Over. They include: Curvaceous (light grey pink), Good Times (pale mauve), Illicit (creamy neutral pink), Plum Fun (neutral plum with purple pearlized pigments), Social Light (neutral pink with pearlized pigments), Spite (muted plum taupe brown), and The Wee Coquette (naked neutral pink).

  • Curvaceous is a milky pink with just a hint of plum. It has a creamy, milky appearance, so it can take some patience to get even coverage, though the opacity of the gloss is mostly opaque. It is similar to Illamasqua Move but Curvaceous is less pigmented.
  • Good Times is a pale, milky pinked mauve. The lightness of the color combined with the milkiness does make it a gloss that settles into lip lines. The color itself is mostly opaque. It is more opaque than MAC Going Casual but much less pink compared to MAC Splashing.
  • Illicit is a peachy-beige with white micro-shimmer. This is a repromote. I found this one difficult to apply in an even layer of color–it just settles into lip lines and looks quite uneven, which is also due to the general thickness of the formula itself. It is less pink compared to MAC Lust, less coral compared to MAC Pretty Quick!, more peach (but less even) than MAC Jest For Fun, similar to (but less even) than MAC Frankly Fresh,
  • Plum Fun is a berry-tinted red with gold shimmer. It has nearly opaque color coverage. NYX Burgundy is redder. NARS Bougainville is very similar, though it is a touch darker. Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant is pinker.
  • Social Light is a pink-brown with multi-colored shimmer. It’s an interesting shade, because it looks browner in the tube and swatched, but it emphasizes the redness in my lips when worn. This was, however, the 11th or 12th lip product I swatched. When swatched, it resembles MAC Spree, but it’s a touch less brown. It is less coral compared to MAC Wildly Refined.
  • Spite will be reviewed when I am able to purchase it, but my local stores are presently sold out of it. This is a permanent shade.
  • The Wee Coquette is a pale, milky blue-based pink with white shimmer. This is a repromote. It is less opaque and glossier than MAC Enchantee.

MAC Lipglasses are sticky, vanilla-scented, and wear longer than most glosses (because of their tackiness). I get between three and four hours with lighter colors, and some of the darker shades will wear four to five on me. The formula is very thick, though, which can make getting an even layer more difficult. Additionally, when the hue is very pale, creamy, or otherwise milky-looking, the unevenness is more pronounced.

MAC Me Over is a 51-piece collection for fall, which will launch in North America on August 25th, 2011 and internationally in September 2011. It will launch online approximately August 23rd but there is no concrete online launch date. All products–unless otherwise noted–are limited edition.

B-
I generally don't mind MAC's stickier, thicker Lipglass formula, but a couple of these felt more gloppy than just thick on. The milkier shades are better over a lipstick, because it will help minimize the unevenness in the gloss layer more.

After we got settled into our hotel yesterday afternoon, I did this bright look. I figured since most of the day was gone, I wouldn’t have to worry about it melting off. I’ll use today to determine just how much makeup I can wear and tolerate with the humidity and high heat!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Teal pigment (teal base), Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow (green-based gold), Sharp eyeshadow (chartreuse), Gulf Stream eyeshadow (teal), Cool Heat eyeshadow (blue-teal), Ricepaper eyeshadow (soft neutral highlighter), Graphblack technakohl (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Suncentered Colour Forms Powder (soft peach)
  • Lips: Cherish lipstick (nude beige), Illicit lipglass (beige)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Sharp = Sour Lemon; Gulf Stream = Shimmermoss; Cool Heat = Electric Eel; Suncentered = Foolish Me; Illicit = C-Thru

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Teal pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. Apply Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on inner third of the lid using the 239. Apply Sharp eyeshadow next to Gorgeous Gold with the 239. Deepen outer lid with Gulf Stream eyeshadow with the 239, and then darken the outer lid with Cool Heat eyeshadow. Darken the outer crease using Cool Heat eyeshadow with the 239. Sweep Ricepaper underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Suncentered using the 129. Apply Cherish lipstick to lips, and then top with Illicit lipglass for color and shine.

I’m a bit under the weather at the moment (I think it’s the flu…), so if I look a bit ragged/tired, that’s why ;) This didn’t quite come out how I wanted it, and I really wanted to wipe it all off afterwards, lol. Don’t you hate when that happens? Hopefully tomorrow will go better! (It’s been a rough few days here over at Temptalia HQ – nothing has gone as planned!)

By the by, Deep Dark is way too orange for me. I ended up using it more as a blusher (and had to buff it a bit), so I’ll be exchanging that next week when I go pick up my Colour Forms products (18th). I do like it as a light blush, so we’ll see – I’ll keep experimenting this week before I return it.

It’s Friday, ladies! Rejoice, we’re almost to the weekend. What do you have planned for tonight/this weekend?

I used Blue pigment (LE) on lid, Sea & Sky mineralize eyeshadow (marbled side) (LE) on inner lid, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lid, Contrast eyeshadow on outer crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Nylon eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow layered on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Deep Dark mineralize skinfinish duo on cheeks. I wore Sandy B lipstick and Illicit lipglass (LE).

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Blue = Freshwather; Sea & Sky = Tilt; Sea & Sky = Freshwater; Illicit = C-Thru

I wore Springsheen blush with Peach Haze beauty powder to highlight the cheeks. I had Cherish lipstick with Illicit lipglass and a touch of Tres Cher! lipglass.
