MAC Heavenly Creatures Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Heavenly Creatures Cremesheen Glasss ($19.50 for 0.09 fl. oz.) features five shades: Astral (bright yellow pink), Celestial Kiss (pale cool peach), Galaxy Rose (mid-tone violet pink), Meteoric (mid-tone vibrant coral), and Strictly Plutonic (mid-tone pink brown).

  • Astral is a bright strawberry pink with yellow and red undertones and a fine smattering of micro-shimmer. MAC Dare to Dare is a bit lighter. NARS Mexican Rose is pinker, darker. MAC Radiant Jewels is more fuchsia. Lancome Electric Pink is darker and more fuchsia.
  • Celestial Kiss is a pale peach with white micro-shimmer. Despite the lightness of the shade, it doesn’t settle too noticeably into lip lines (especially from a normal viewing distance) and applies evenly without bunching up in places or looking really milky on lips. MAC Rich & Witty is very similar but has more shimmer. MAC Passing Fancy is a little more peach. MAC Poetic License is paler.
  • Galaxy Rose is a deepened raspberry pink with the barest hint of plum. It has a creamy consistency and finish. MAC Just Add Color is similar in color but has fuchsia shimmer. MAC Radiant Jewels is bluer-based and has shimmer. NARS Mexican Rose is bluer-based.
  • Meteoric is a coral-pink with golden orange shimmer. It’s semi-opaque in color coverage and applies evenly and smoothly. MAC Star Qaulity is much more vibrant–almost neon in comparison–without any shimmer; warmer in tone. Revlon Strawberry is much, much darker and redder. Chanel Nakkar is slightly sheerer and lighter.
  • Strictly Plutonic is a rosy brown with no shimmer. It’s semi-sheer but definitely changes my lip color. Korres Natural Purple is more orange. YSL Pure Watermelon is warmer, lighter. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is brighter and more opaque. MAC So Vain is slightly more coral, lighter. MAC Over Indulgence is browner, darker.

Cremesheen Glasses are vanilla-scented (but no discernible taste), not too thick or too thin (almost gel-like in consistency to me), and non-sticky. They come in large, clear plastic tubes with a doe-foot applicator. The tube is a bit misleading, because it seems rather hefty, but inside is a mere 0.09 fl. oz. (Lipglass has 0.17 fl. oz.)–and it’s always been a sore point with me.

I spent most of today testing out the wear of these five:  Astral wore for three hours, Celestial Kiss for two hours, Galaxy Rose for three and a half hours, Meteoric for three hours, and Strictly Plutonic for two and a half hours. The wear time is a little off-putting, especially when coupled with the lesser amount in the tube, since frequent application is required.  I usually get around four hours of wear with gloss, and I will say this batch of Cremesheen Glasses performed better (on the whole) than a lot of other shades I’ve tried.

I think they feel really nice on the lips, and though I wouldn’t say super moisturizing, my lips weren’t cracked by the end of the day.  While many shades released in this formula have been pale and milky or else so sheer there is difficulty distinguishing one from the other, these sit and lie well on the lips–they have a really juicy, natural look. They enhance and play well with one’s natural lip color. There wasn’t a lot of settling into lip lines, except some minor settling with Celestial Kiss (which is also the lightest shade in the launch).

The price point for these bad boy’s is $19.50US and $22.50CAN. As much as the Meteoric shade temping me the price jump is cringe worthy. Still waiting for my Light Year to process as well. It is sold out now on the Canadian site along with Star Wonder. :S

I think there are some lovely colors here, and I generally like the formula because it’s not sticky-yay!, plus they have a lot of colors that are more about shine/sheen instead of shimmer/sparkle(I usually have enough shimmer on eyes that I don’t want it anywhere else)  But I do get put off by the amount in them. Anyone know of a similar formula out there?  I’m kind of a gloss newbie. 

 @Christine (Temptalia) Thank you for getting back to me. 🙂 That’s really helpful! I guess I need Meteoric afterall, since it has more colour.

@berries I saw Meteoric in person, and it looks nothing like Orgasm, unfortunately (or fortunately, for some!). Meteoric is much brighter and more coral.

Meteoric was the second product I was interested in from this collection, but it’s just not enough to lure me in and I think this is definitely yet another pass on another Mac collection.

I just swatched my own Revlon Colorburst LG in Strawberry, and it looks very similar to Astral. I also swatched my Revlon Colorburst LG in Cheers (Limited Edition), and it looks almost identical to Galaxy Rose. 

Damn! I was hoping meteoric would look a lot more opaque on the lips. I think I’ll pass and go for Astral instead, or maybe pick up another msf. Sigh. I’m always looking for a gloss that would look awesome on its own and is enough to turn a lipstick to a completely different color when applied on top. And something that won’t turn my lips terra cotta or brown in any way.

What on earth was the model wearing on her lips in the promo pics? It doesn’t look like any of these, or any of the lipsticks, or any combination of the two? Or am I just going crazy… it’s a shame, cause I thought that colour was beautiful!

 @Christine (Temptalia) Christine, have you had a chance yet to check out Chanel’s Coral Love? 🙂 I just don’t want to end up getting two of the same. Thank you for your help!

I’m so undecided about Meteoric! On the lips, the gold is not noticeable at all, which is a shame. I love the texture and the colour is a lovely coral, but you get so little product for the price. 🙁

I just bought the Meteoric Cremesheen Lipglass and I love it! The colour sits well on my lips and the colour is just beautiful! The main noticeable colour is definitely the coral, but the gold tone is slightly noticeable too on my lips. Absolute loving it. 😀 x
