Candy Box

MAC Candy Box Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage, though not quite full, that applied evenly across the lips. There was slight color that had pulled into my lip lines, but it was hardly noticeable in person. The texture was very smooth, slightly thinner than the average Lipglass but still somewhat tacky. It wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating 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. 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.

Saucy Little Thing

MAC Saucy Little Thing Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a deep berry with subtle, cool undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, though there was color that sat in my lip lines. The texture was smooth, thinner than the average Lipglass, and comfortable to wear and to apply, as it spread quite easily across the lips. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating on me.

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.

Artful Deception

Pretty Vulgar Artful Deception My Lips are Sealed Liquid Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a dark, taupe brown with warmer undertones and multi-colored pearl. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips with even, opaque color. The liquid lipstick was smooth, just a touch tackiness, and spreadable, though there was a bit of color that sat in my deeper lip lines. However, this wasn’t as noticeable in person as the glossiness distracted from it. The color wore well for almost six and a half hours with most of the glossiness

The formula is described as “full coverage” and “long-lasting” with a “glossy” finish. It is more like a literal interpretation of liquid lipstick, as the finish was absolutely glossy and the lipstick did not dry down and set. The formula was long-wearing, though, as the glossiness lasted for three to four hours and then wore down to a satin-to-matte finish that still was quite pigmented. Initially, I would have described it as more of a gloss, but the way they wore down to a satin finish eventually made them more like a very glossy lipstick after all. There was a faint sweet scent but no discernible taste.

Love Child

MAC Love Child Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and copper shimmer. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lip lines at all. The texture felt smooth, light-to-medium in weight, and had noticeable tackiness that never felt goopy. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating 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.

Girl About Town

MAC Girl About Town Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia pink with fine violet and white pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, while the texture covered the lips with even, smooth color with almost no visible settling into my lip lines. The high-shine finish gave the illusion of plumper, fuller, and smoother lips, too. The gloss stayed on well for 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.

MAC Please Me Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, given the type of color and texture, but there was noticeable color that had settled into my lip lines as milky consistencies often do. The gloss wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.
