MAC Carousel Lipglass
MAC Carousel Lipglass

MAC Carousel Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered with very little streaking, but the color sunk into lip lines, which may be a deal-breaker for some. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, but it didn’t feel too heavy. This shade lasted for five hours and was slightly hydrating for me.

MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. This shade was so bright and glossy that while it settled a bit into lip lines, I could barely tell looking in a regular mirror as the shine camouflaged the settling. The texture was smoother and a little less thick compared to most Lipglasses. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly. This shade wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $19.00)(100% similar). NARS Love Me Do (P, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar).

MAC Raring to Go Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with very subtle, cool undertones and fine, iridescent pink shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly and didn’t settle into lines much (very slightly). The texture was also smoother and less tacky than older MAC Lipglasses, but it is still moderately tacky. The color wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Little MAC Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a miniature-sized version of MAC’s regular Lipglass, so the formula is exactly the same and even includes shades previously released as limited edition. The Lipglass formula is supposed to be pigmented, shiny, and hydrating. I find that pigmentation can range from very sheer to totally opaque from shade to shade–there is a ton of variance–with a light-medium to medium-weight texture that’s thicker, moderately to very tacky, and lasts four to six hours. I don’t mind Lipglass myself, despite the tackiness, but if you loathe sticky glosses, Lipglass is probably not going to be your number one favorite! They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste. For comparison, full-sized MAC Lipglasses are $15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz. or $88.24/fl. oz. while the miniature-sized is $125.00/fl. oz. The smaller size makes the most sense for those who like more variety rather than more product or who do not typically finish a gloss.

Raring To Go is exactly the type of “warm” fuchsia that I am able to wear, other than jumping the aisle completely and wearing purples, that do not give me a decidedly jaundiced look! I love this shade loads!
