MAC Feelin' So Good Lipglass
MAC Feelin’ So Good Lipglass

MAC Feelin’ So Good Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep blackened plum.” It’s a dark, reddish plum with brown undertones. Bobbi Brown Plum Gold is more berry-colored and has gold shimmer. MAC Lasting Achievement is redder/plummier. MAC Gertruyd is slightly lighter.

It’s semi-opaque–it noticeably tints the lips and makes them look darker, but a lot of the natural lip color can come through. There is a lot of noticeable settling of the darker color into lip lines, and it looked uneven to me even from a normal viewing distance (aka not just up-close-and-personal).  I don’t normally have problems with lip colors bleeding/feathering, but this one did migrate a little outside of my lips.  It  had the normal feel of Lipglass–a thicker formula with a tacky feel.  This shade coordinates really well with Boyfriend Stealer, though this is a smidgen browner overall.  Feelin’ So Good wore just under four hours on me.

MAC Strawberry Malt Lipglass
MAC Strawberry Malt Lipglass

MAC Strawberry Malt Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright red.” It’s a pinky-red with cool undertones with no shimmer. MAC Cult of Cherry is darker and has ruby shimmer. MAC Send Me Sailing is redder. MAC Wicked Ways is a touch redder. NARS Strawberry Fields is pinker.

It has mostly opaque color coverage with a subtle translucency that gives it a very juicy, almost jelly-like, finish. It also seemed extra glossy compared to other shades in the Lipglass family. I didn’t have any problems with this feathering or bleeding on me when I wore it.  This will definitely pair well with Ronnie Red and give it a really rich, glossy look.  Strawberry Malt wore for four hours well.  The texture and consistency were as expected for Lipglass, which is a thicker consistency and tackier texture than the average gloss.

MAC Summer Sweetheart Lipglass
MAC Summer Sweetheart Lipglass

MAC Summer Sweetheart Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light peach.” It’s exactly that: a pale, milky peach with a creamy consistency and look. MAC Peachstock is darker, more beige. MAC Orange Tempera is lighter, paler. MAC Ready or Not is more orange. NARS Odalisque is darker, more orange. MAC Woo Me is lighter.

It settles into lip lines, and it looks a little thick on the lips. It has fairly good opacity, though, as it is semi-opaque and covers most of my lip freckle. There is some translucency all around, so the natural lip color will come through and, depending on your natural lip color, may alter the resulting color. Despite it having a thicker, tackier consistency (but on par with MAC’s Lipglass formula), it only lasted two and a half hours on me. It was neither drying nor hydrating during the time I wore it.

The shorter wear time combined with the color settling into lip lines made this product less impressive on the whole.

MAC Stay Sweet Lipglass
MAC Stay Sweet Lipglass

MAC Stay Sweet Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light lavender pink.” It’s a pale, milky pink with cool undertones and a creamy finish. MAC Pink Fade is a smidgen purpler but very close. MAC Long Love Love is bluer-based and pinker. MAC The Wee Coquette is lighter. MAC Good Times is whiter, less pink. For whatever reason, MAC really likes their milky pinks!

Not surprisingly, it settles into lip lines quite a bit. It spreads and applies more evenly than other similar-colored glosses, though. The consistency is on the thicker side and is tacky, so one of the unfortunate results of that is that if you press your lips together, you’ll see a raised line of color.  I just wrapped up testing this shade about an hour ago, and it wore for three and a half hours.  This is definitely one of the better-performing variations on milky pink I’ve seen, though, so if it’s the kind of color you like, it may still be worth checking out.  It is also better layered over something more opaque, so then it will not settle as much.

MAC Kiss & Don't Tell Lipglass
MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell Lipglass

MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright coral.” It’s a vibrant pink-coral with subtle warm undertones and a cream finish. MAC Star Quality is darker with more red in it. OCC Trollop is brighter, more opaque. MAC Viva Glam Nicki is lighter, pinker.

It has mostly opaque color coverage with some underlying translucency. The color settled somewhat into lip lines but was not particularly noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It did apply evenly and smoothly, though. Kiss & Don’t Tell was the first color I tested for today, and it wore for three hours.  The consistency was on the thicker side (but consistent with Lipglass), tacky, and neither hydrating nor drying.

It did settle into lines a bit, so it doesn't look completely even sometimes (and be careful if you press your lips together a lot). I was surprised to find it only lasted three hours on me, as I usually get four hours with most glosses but especially Lipglass, since it is a tackier gloss.

MAC Mall Madness Lipglass
MAC Mall Madness Lipglass

MAC Mall Madness Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone pink violet.” It’s a pinky-plum with gold, fuchsia, and violet micro-shimmer. MAC Dress Kimono is similar in color but has a lot less shimmer. MAC Dare to Dare is sheerer and has larger sparkle. MAC Imperial Red is a touch darker. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet is sheerer and a bit purpler.

Applied, it yielded semi-opaque color coverage with a good amount of color and shimmer. The color didn’t settle into lip lines, and it went on smoothly and evenly. Lipglass has a thicker consistency that’s rather tacky, and this shade wore for just over three hours and was neither hydrating nor drying. It has really subtle shimmer, despite it seeming to have so much of it, so if you like just a little sparkle, you may like this shade a lot. There’s just enough color that it’s not a barely-there gloss, but it’s not too dark or bright. I want to call it spring-but-better. MAC Lipglasses are vanilla-scented and come with a doe-foot applicator.
