I love the promo picture and the Asian-inspired names, but the creme sheen formula is too sheer and light for me. I prefer more opaque coverage

These look beautiful . I hope the updated Creamsheen formula performs better. I really like the kitschy names.Although I’m wondering if Japanese consumers may take offense. The look,in the promo pic is gorgeous. But, somehow ( good editing I am sure) Mac always seems to make the models lips and their faces for that matter completely lineless. Either that or she has 5 coats of lipglass sitting there waiting to run all over.
On a side note, Christine or anyone , I am on the hunt for a plain clear gloss to use as a topper. Any suggestions?I like high shine, no line settling! If it’s cheaper and works- great. But, I’m willing to shell out a bit more if it’s good stuff.I’ve been struggling with Nars and its finally almost gone. Thanks in advance for any help here.

I don’t like the promo image with the pearls between her teeth. Obviously any gloss will do that, and I’m glad they didn’t photoshop it out, but this really shows the lipgloss getting into the texture of her lips, which contrasts against the smooth nails, pearls. Maybe they just shouldn’t have gotten that up close and personal with her lips??

When I saw the promo, I thought, “This is the first makeup promo that didn’t airbrush out the texture!” I can’t recall ever seeing a lip promo that didn’t show absolutely smooth-as-glass (or velvet) lips, unless it was for a crazy-glittery formula.

First of all, the MAC Giambattista Valli is waaaaaaaayyyyyyy overhyped. I could find at 100 dupes for that collection. That collection was a waste of money and I’m glad I didn’t get anything. As for MAC Creamsheen Pearl, I love this collection. Wanna get at least 3

I do love pinks and corals, but I’ll have to see how these do. I don’t think I have any of the repromotes, so that makes me think there was just *something* about the formula that hasn’t appealed to me before.

Yay! Glad that these are in their permanent line.
These are the types of lipsticks I like the most: pink/coral and shiny. 😉

Because I have a thing for gold infused reds, Sweet Sakura has my attention out of the entire bunch of these new lippys! It’ll be fun to see how all these new shades look swatched and worn. I do own 2 of the original Cremesheen with Pearl lipsticks, Pure Zen and Sunny Seoul, I love the latter one for a light pinky shade. Hopefully this lauch doesn’t have a lot of dupes of the originals….

I LOVE the idea of the pearl lipstick and can’t wait to see swatches. I’ll pass on the gloss because I’m guessing it’ll be super-sticky and uneven like many of their glosses, sadly. Did anybody else notice how even in the promo picture, which is undoubtedly photoshopped, you can see the gloss settling into lip lines?

Jules Avatar

One thing though…I wish MAC would have been a little more thoughtful with the names. It’s fine to be inspired by other cultures, that’s a great thing and it’s important to art – but they could have gotten rid of Asian stereotypes like “Pretty Boy” and “Little Buddha.” Surely they’ve got enough creative people at MAC who could have thought of something else?

I agree. It’s 2015, we should be over this kind of thing. if you’re really inspired by Asia–although to me this looks like it’s strictly Japanese–the continent is big enough to provide inspiration for a dozen collections without resorting to stereotypes.
