New Galaxy

MAC New Galaxy Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a very, very light gray base with multi-colored blue, pink, and purple pearl. The base color was rather sheer, and I didn’t feel like it added color to my lips but a fair amount of shimmer. The gloss would work well for layering, as the cooler tone of it could alter underlying lip colors nicely. I wish MAC had described this one as sheer, though! The texture was smooth, slightly thinner than the average Lipglass, and comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted for.

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.

Love in the Glades

MAC Love in the Glades Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is like a smoky take on tropical greens and blues. The palette had a mix of cooler undertones and neutral undertones, which made it one of the cooler-toned palettes that I’ve come across. The lightest shade (Grey Stroke) was the biggest miss in the palette, but the other six applied fairly well, had good pigmentation, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer).

Note, the palette only contains 0.10 oz. worth of eyeshadow, and MAC’s 9-pan palettes and quads typically contain 0.19 oz. at the same price ($32). This collection’s palettes didn’t seem small, and the pans seemed like they would contain a fair amount of product, so I was surprised to discover the pans must be very shallow!

This collection launches on May 18th.

Oh My, Passion!

MAC Oh My, Passion! Pearlmatte Face Powder ($33.00 for 0.28 oz.) is comprised of a soft yellow, reddish-brown, pink-coral, and pinky lavender that swirl together and create a subdued pinky-peach with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It could look pinker or more muted depending on how much of the pink/lavender compared to brown was picked up.

The Pearlmatte Face Powder is supposed to be a combination of a highlighter and blush with “excellent colour payoff” and a “rich and creamy texture.” They vary a lot in price and size, as they are a limited edition formula and often feature embossing/special designs. The consistency was incredibly smooth and soft in the pan with a touch of powderiness, but luckily, that powderiness didn’t translate to the skin. Instead, the more I buffed and blended out the color, the more luminous the finish became–glowing but not overtly shimmery and never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage if desired. The blush wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

MAC Lust Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm, brown undertones and a cream finish. I almost wanted to describe it as a peachy brown, but there was a rosiness to it the color that it truer to a coral to my eye. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, and it applied fairly evenly, though there was a bit of color that had pulled into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, light-to-medium in weight, and noticeably tacky, though it did not feel overly thick or goopy to me. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was 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.

Spite

MAC Spite Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium taupe brown with rosy undertones and fine pearl. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evnely with just a smidgen of color that was visible in my deeper lip lines. The consistency was almost so smooth that it was creamy, but it was slightly thicker than your average gloss and moderately tacky. It wore well for five and a half hours on me 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.

Obviously Bare

MAC Obviously Bare Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, light-medium brown with warm undertones and fine, white pearl. It appeared lighter applied than swatched for me, and it had a milkier quality to the look of it so that some of the color gathered into my lip lines as milky glosses often do. It was very smooth in feel, and it spread easily across the lips, but it just lacked the evenness that would make it standout. This sahde wore well for four and a half hours 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.
