God Save the Sheen

MAC God Save the Sheen Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium lavender with warm, pink undertones and fine pink, lavender, and gold pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage (and it was described as “sheer”) that applied evenly, though there was some of the milkier base that pulled into my lip lines. It wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance, thankfully! The texture was lightweight (but more medium in consistency) with moderate tackiness but was comfortable to wear. The color stayed on well for four hours and was moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 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.

Buzz Cut

MAC Buzz Cut Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a milky, translucent base with flecks of pink and white sparkle. It had semi-sheer to medium “coverage” (peek my lip freckle barely showing!) between the milkiness of the base along with the sparkle/shimmer. For as milky as it was, it didn’t emphasize my lip lines quite as much as I expected, and the amount of shininess and sparkliness helped distract from that at a normal viewing distance. The texture was smooth, spreadable, and lightweight despite having a more light-medium thickness (and moderate tackiness). It wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

I Am Too Smart

MAC I Am Too Smart Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft beige base with lots of multi-colored pearl dominated by gold. The gloss applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without settling into my lip lines, so it made my lips appear fuller and plumper. It had semi-sheer to medium color coverage between the base color and shimmer, but I’d say a lot of the “coverage” came from the shimmer. The consistency was noticeably tacky but comfortable to wear, as it wasn’t too heavy on. It lasted well for four hours and was moisturizing over time.

Because I have enough beigey and golden lip glosses, I’m not even letting myself like that last one! It’s gorgeous though!
After perusing the 3, I revisited something that I put on my WL awhile back: Grand Illusion in Just Hustlin’. I’ve got to return the other one I just bought, Deep Set. Looked fab at SFS, but yesterday when I decided to wear mine, I truly looked asphyxiated with it on. Had to redo my lips with Huda Fearless.

Well, MAC could take some flak for an anti-empowerment message to (young) women. I can see some brainiacs and techies using it as an FY message… It would be one thing if it were in a name series, like MJB. I am….to smart…for my….own good/other half, etc.
