MAC By Request – Lipglasses

MAC By Request is a collection that’s voted on by the fans–there are 18 shades of lipstick, lipglass, and eyeshadow that MAC has listed for grabs, and your votes will determine the top three from each product type that will go on to be launched in an online exclusive, limited edition collection in August. Voting is open and closes on March 30th and users can vote once per product category per day. Not sure where to cast your vote? I’ve got the goods on the six lipglasses up for a comeback! :) These just arrived from MAC – all the labels just say “sample” on the back, so I don’t know if these were a recent production or if these were from original runs. I’m thinking they’re probably from short runs – perhaps just to ensure the colors could still be made or have the recipes ready to go into production as soon as voting is over.

MAC Chen Man Love & Water Collection: Lipglasses

There are two limited edition MAC Lipglasses ($14.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) in the new Love & Water Collection: Budding Love (pale lavender) and Force of Love (vivid honeysuckle pink). They, obviously, coordinate with the lipsticks–the descriptions are even the same.

Budding Love is a softly blue-based milky pink with soft white and pink shimmer. Because it’s a milkier shade, it does settle into lip lines and doesn’t always look perfectly even once applied. MAC Enchantee is very similar but streakier and has no shimmer. MAC Infinitely Likeable is a yellower pink. MAC Viva Glam Gaga is a bit lighter. MAC English Accents is pinker.

Force of Love is a yellow-based medium-dark pink with white sparkle. It has semi-opaque color coverage with some settling into lip lines. Chanel Pink Pulsion is darker, less opaque. MAC Electro Lush is darker. MAC If It’s Pink… is brighter, more fuchsia. Chanel Pink Teaser is similar but has gold shimmer.

MAC Lipglasses are a sticky, thick gloss, so they have a tendency to wear for four hours.  They’re vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.  I’m not a big fan of this formula when the shade is more pastel, as it tends to settle or have a streaky application, which was the case with Budding Love, though it’s not the worst I’ve seen.  Force of Love has less coral in it compared to the coordinating lipstick, so if you layer this gloss over the lipstick, you’ll pull out more of the pink tones.
