Russian Red

MAC Russian Red Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly and had minimal settling (I couldn’t tell at all that there was any in person, partially as the color was so bright and the finish so glossy). The gloss had a smooth feel going on, plush but not heavy, and somewhat tacky. It wore well for almost six hours and was lightly hydrating.

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 find 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.

MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light, cooler pink paired with warmer, gold pearl that is plentiful enough that it gave the gloss a warmer tone overall. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff that applied fairly evenly. There was just a smidgen of gloss that sat in my deeper lip lines, but it looked smooth from a distance due to the high-shine finish. The gloss was moderately tacky, lasted for four hours, and was lightly moisturizing over time.

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.

It’s a new, limited edition formula described as a “natural hint of color with extremely comfortable wear.” It medium pigmentation that applied fairly evenly across the lips. The product had a thinner, wetter texture going on that immediately developed into a smooth, non-tacky, and gel-like consistency on the lips. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating. There was no discernible scent or taste to the formula.

MAC Lustrewhite Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a clear gloss with fine white pearl and larger, white sparkle. (Thankfully, MAC listed this one as “clear-glazed with white sparkle,” so the sheerness was as expected.) It had a slightly thinner consistency compared to most of the Lipglasses, though it was still noticeably tackky on the lips. It had semi-sheer coverage with respect to the amount of shimmer in the product. The gloss wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

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.

MAC Justine Skye Iridescent Powder ($27.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy purple with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of lavender sparkle and fine pearl shimmer. The Iridescent Powder is supposed to give a “hint of soft purple for cheeks with a shimmering pink pearl sheen” that has “buildable coverage” and is “long-wearing.” The consistency was incredibly dense–firmly packed and required a denser brush or slight jabbing motions to get enough product onto the brush. The denser texture made it harder to blend out on the skin as the product tended to go on unevenly, so it took more work to diffuse the color evenly across the cheeks. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) that lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

This product will release April 13th, but it is available for pre-order now.

MAC Fortune Red Lipglass ($18.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that went on evenly and didn’t gather in my lip lines. The consistency was thinner than the average Lipglass, which I expect was partially due to the packaging have a tighter opening that made it so less product was on the doe-foot applicator. It was still moderately tacky as the Lipglass formula typically is. The gloss lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
