MAC Objects of Affection/Nude + Red Lipglass
MAC Objects of Affection/Nude + Red Lipglass ($35.00 for 0.32 fl. oz.) includes three Cremesheen Glasses and one Dazzleglass. Again, I’ve reviewed these shades in the past, so this is just a quick overview with photos and swatches.
Paper Lantern is a sheer, warm peach with beige shimmer. View dupes.
Dynasty at Dusk is a semi-sheer, coral-orange with gold shimmer. View dupes.
Deelight is a dusty, muted rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. View dupes.
Love Alert is a cool-toned, pink-red with lighter pink sparkle. View dupes.
Each year that MAC releases these sets, I say the same thing: these are an excellent value. Generally, both of these formulas are low on value–there really isn’t much in those large plastic tubes (they look way bigger than they are). Cremesheen Glass retails for $20.00 for 0.09 fl. oz., while Dazzleglass retails for $20.00 for 0.06 fl. oz. Yeah, the amount contained in the tube in this set is more than a full-sized Dazzleglass–go figure! This set includes $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass and $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass, so it is a total value of $80.
The Cremesheen Glass formula is creamy, light-to-medium in weight, non-sticky, vanilla-scented, and very comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, they’re often milky, so they can settle into lip lines, and they wear away within one to three hours (usually about two for me except for some of the deeper/more pigmented shades). It is a sheerer formulation, so they can be used for layering as well. Dazzleglass is a medium weight, sticky, vanilla-scented, sparkling gloss. It is also a sheerer formula to wear, but the sparkles distract from possible settling for the most part. The formula wears longer, due to the tackiness, but can vary from two to five hours.
The collection launches online on October 23rd.
