Coral of the Wild

MAC Coral of the Wild Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a milky, pale coral with warm, pinker undertones and a barely-there pearl strewn throughout a cream finish. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in thickness, and was moderately tacky. The coverage was semi-opaque, and it managed to go on rather evenly without streaking along the edges, but it did sit in most of my lip lines as milky glosses often have in the past. If that’s not a deal-breaker, I was impressed that it was pretty even on! It wore well for four hours and was moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.1 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

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 have found 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.

Rock Starz

MAC Rock Starz Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium, taupe-brown with warm undertones and multi-colored pearl. The pearl appeared much lighter, which gave the finish a more metallic look to my eye. The gloss had a smooth, spreadable consistency that felt noticeably tacky on, but it didn’t feel heavy to me and seemed to smooth out most of my lip lines. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that lasted well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Make Me Mercurial

MAC Make Me Mercurial Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and fine pearl throughout. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and easily across my lips. The texture was light-medium in thickness but didn’t feel heavy, while it had a moderately sticky consistency (typical of this formula). I had a smidgen of product that gathered in my deeper lip lines but not enough that it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance. This shade stayed on nicely for five hours and was hydrating while worn.

These are showing on the MAC website as $18.50, rather than $17.50 as listed here. But Rock Starz and Mercurial are lovely at just about any price!

Make Me Mercurial is my favorite and glad to see it got a good review. I have a lot of lip lines, as older people do, so not sure if it would travel on me but I am going to give it a try. As I have mentioned before on the blog, I was never a big lip gloss wearer but PMGL changed my way of thinking and I am loving the ones that I have now. I always use a wax pencil around my lip margins to try and keep products from travelling and that works most of the time. I like UD Ozone also. MMM is a shade that is right in my wheel house. Never met a pink, berry or plum that I didn’t love.

Woohoo! Rock Starz got the Temptalia Recommends sticker of approval! I thought it might, too! It and/or Make Me Mercurial. Those are both of superb quality.
Rock Starz is what I would have liked Oh, Baby to look like on me, because Rock Starz has so much multi-colored sparkle and shimmer that it looks like nothing else I have or ever did!

Aww! I can see why people wouldn’t like it – it’s definitely not like most glosses any more (a bit heavier, definitely tackier).

It’s so interesting that there seem to be a lot of people not liking this formula. It is my absolute favourite formula.
I totally get it as I’m not fond of lighter formulas.

Yeah Rock Starz is thick very pigmented and takes a bit of work to get it even. I like it but didn’t realize it’s almost a exact dupe for the Kevyn Aucoin gloss which I have and never wear.

I have the face palette..love Macs blushes weird how they are so good but not their eyeshadows.
