MAC Glass Slipper Lipglass
MAC Glass Slipper Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light milky pink with pinkish pearl.” It’s a translucent, milky light pink with fine silver and pink shimmer. Applied, you can see the milkiness as it lightens my natural lip color. It has a noticeable amount of shimmer, but it’s not a lot. It’s a subtler gloss than you’d expect, given how shimmery it appears in the tube. The gloss lasted for three hours on me. MAC has put out a lot of barely-there, shimmery kind of glosses, and I think they can be pretty and often look more sparkling (and interesting) in person than in photos. I’d love to have seen a little more pigment in the base, especially since the lipsticks are on the sheer side, too. Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is darker. MAC Poetic (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery. MAC On Cue (LE, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Beautiful Moves (LE, $22.00) is similar. Illamasqua Exquisite (P, $24.00) is more pigmented. Chanel Songe (191) (LE, $29.50) is similar. Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) is similar. Guerlain Star Dust (900) (LE, $30.00) is similar. MAC Soft Spoken (LE, $15.00) is sheerer.

MAC Happily Ever After Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool milky pink with bluish pearl.” It has a milky, pinky-white base with lots of bluish-teal sparkle and finer silver shimmer. This one was interesting, and anyone who tends to gravitate towards really sparkly glosses might like it. I think it looks more complex in person than it looks in photos, as the pearl is noticeably blue-tinged. It had semi-sheer color at most, but the milky base settled into lip lines, unfortunately. I was surprised this wasn’t called Glass Slipper, as the blue pearl reminded me of them. It wore well for three hours. Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is finer shimmer, pinker. MAC Beautiful Moves (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery. MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Reckless Desire (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Playful Petal (LE, $20.00) is pinker. Guerlain Star Dust (900) (LE, $30.00) is less sparkly. Bobbi Brown Firefly (P, $24.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
