MAC Nicely Nude Lip Gloss Set
MAC Nicely Nude Lip Gloss Set

Four Variations on Nude Lipgloss

MAC Nicely Nude Lip Gloss Set ($32.50) includes four shades: Fashion Whim (light beige), Satin Slip (soft beige with gold pearl), Get Rich Quick (warm yellow brown), and Kiss Don’t Tell (warm chocolate creme).  Fashion Whim and Get Rich Quick are part of the permanent range.

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.

Fashion Whim is a peach-beige with very, very fine (and sparse) shimmer. It is semi-sheer to semi-opaque. As it is a lighter color, it does settle into lip lines somewhat.  It lasted two hours on my lips. MAC Peachstock is more opaque. MAC Illicit is darker. MAC Ready or Not is a bit darker and more opaque–also creamier in finish.

Satin Slip is a warm-toned, peach-orange with gold and pink shimmer. It is semi-sheer on lips; it darkens my natural lip color and adds a fair amount of shimmer.  I really felt the grit of the sparkle in this particular shade right off the bat, which was unexpected.  It wore for three hours.  Revlon Sunset Peach is a smidgen darker. MAC Spirits-a-flyin’ doesn’t have pink shimmer.

Get Rich Quick is a rosy, medium-dark brown with pink sparkle. It has semi-sheer color coverage and lasted for four hours. Revlon Rosegold is less brown. MAC Blessedly Rich has a lot more shimmer. Bobbi Brown Beach is browner.

Kiss Don’t Tell is a medium-dark rosy brown with a cream finish. It has mostly opaque color and wore for two and a half hours. Bobbi Brown Uber Suede is a little browner and has gold shimmer. NARS More is a touch lighter (more orange-brown than rose-brown) and less glossy.

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!).

B
The longevity of this set of glosses was weak, which did bring down the overall rating noticeably. The grit of Satin Slip was unexpected, while Fashion Whim did settle into lip lines.
