Audible

MAC Audible Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, peachy orange with very fine, gold pearl over a cream finish. It was more of a cream finish than a shimmery gloss, though. It had good color coverage in a single layer that applied evenly without streaking, but the downside was there was some product that pulled into my deeper lip lines. The shinier finish helped to make that appear less noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in thickness with a lightweight feel, and had moderate tackiness. It lasted well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I have found that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

I See You

Colour Pop I See You Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deeper, more orange-leaning gold with flecks of gold and copper sparkle and very fine, golden pearl. The shade itself was described as “sheer” by the brand, but it seemed more semi-sheer to medium to me. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being tacky and comfortable to wear, though there was a bit more product in a few of my lip liens than I expected (usually the formula is rather smoothing). It wore well for three hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.11 oz. - $54.55 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "hi-shine" with a "non-sticky" texture that "feels amazing" and includes five finishes "from 3-D pearl to sheer tinted colour." They are designed to be a sheerer formula, so many shades are sheer with a smattering of shimmer or sparkle and then a few are more tinted with sheer to semi-sheer coverage but no shimmer. Each gloss has a short, brush-type applicator, which worked better than I expected and didn't leave streaky results behind (in general). They had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

The "Tinted" finish ("glass-like shine with tint of sheer colour and no shimmer") was the least consistent--sometimes prone to unevenness and getting into lip lines, particularly with deeper/richer shades, whereas Pearlescent ("glass-like shine with subtle shimmer") and Prismatic ("glass-like shine with floating multi dimensional pearl and glitters") are sheer to translucent with the major difference being finer shimmer in the Pearlescent finish and larger, more glitter-like particles in the Prismatic finish. Both finishes tended to look plush and more smoothing on my lips. The Creme finish is a "medium-coverage gloss with a creamy finish that does not contain any pearls or glitter." The Metallic is described as a "full-coverage gloss with a mix of pearl and metallic finishes."

The wear time varied by shade but the sheerer ones tended to wear between two and three hours as the formula was, indeed, non-sticky and smooth, which made them lighter-weight and comfortable to wear but shorter wearing. A lot of the sheerer shades ran together, so I would recommend just picking up one or two rather than several as the differences are likely to be lost! Also, keep in mind that sheerer lip colors can look different from person to person due to much of the natural lip color coming through.

Blowzy

Colour Pop Blowzy Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium, pinky-coral with flecks of gold sparkle. It had sheer coverage–just as described–that spread evenly and smoothly across my lips with a high-shine finish and a dusting of sparkle. The gloss had a lightweight, smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t sticky and smoothed out my lip lines. This shade lasted for two and a half hours but was moisturizing while worn.

Caketop

MAC Caketop Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium copper with stronger, warm orange undertones as a base with flecks of sparkles that shifted from mid-tone pink to deeper, copper-red. It seemed to have a rather sheer, more translucent base color (looked almost clear when I spread the gloss out on my skin) with a fair amount of larger, grittier sparkle/micro-glitter. Though Lipglass is a thicker formula and has more density, which often helps disguise the texture of shimmer/sparkle, I felt that this ran a bit thinner and I could feel some of the glitter coming through. It applied somewhat evenly, but there was a bit of product that gathered in my lip lines and the shimmer could have dispersed better. This shade lasted well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Scarcely Seen

MAC Scarcely Seen Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale beige with warm, peachy undertones and fine pearl and shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage–sheer enough that my natural lip color came through noticeably but milky enough to noticeably cover my lip freckle. The texture was lightweight, light-medium in thickness, and moderately tacky. There was a bit of color that gathered in my lip lines, but it was barely noticeable in person and only occurred in my deeper lip lines. I was impressed by the evenness of the milky color, though, as I find these types of shades (in this coverage level) often are streaky. It lasted nicely for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Flaming Lips (812)

Chanel Flaming Lips (812) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a rich, ruby red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic pearl paired with a shiny, glossy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in thickness but still lightweight, and mostly non-sticky. The gloss did feel a bit thicker compared to other Rouge Coco Glosses, but it was also much more pigmented than the typical shade, though officially the formula runs “sheer to opaque” (and rarely gives insight in what’s what!). This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding, but keep in mind that those are not things I normally experience.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.19 oz. - $157.89 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense shine, hydration” with a “gel-like texture” with shades that vary from “sheer to opaque” in coverage. The consistency has a smooth, lightweight texture that can feel more like a gel-like texture with some of the sheerer shades and more like a cream and gel hybrid with more opaque shades. It’s a formula that’s comfortable to wear with light tackiness that lasts anywhere from two to four hours and is hydrating over time.

There was a strong, mirror-like shine across the shades that was very reminiscent of the prior Glossimer formula. There was a faint floral scent, and with some shades, I got a subtle taste of perfume. The doe foot applicator was more unique (at least, to me) with a very curved edge that was great for my bottom lip while flipping it gave me a more paddle-shaped edge that worked better for my top lip.

I would love to see Chanel introduce color descriptions on their retail website, especially for a formula like this where there can be such a huge difference in pigmentation (and finish) from one shade to the next that isn’t obvious from a product photo.
