MAC Blessedly Rich Lipglass

MAC Hey, Sailor: Lipglasses

MAC Hey, Sailor! Lipglasses ($15.50 for 0.10 oz.) include five shades: Blessedly Rich (rich pale coral), Cut Loose (white gold with pearl), Orange Tempera (pale peach), Riviera Life (bright tangerine), and Send Me Sailing (bright yellow red).  Orange Tempera is a repromote.

  • Blessedly Rich is a burnt red-copper with pink, copper, and gold shimmer. It looks browner on the lips, not quite as burnt or as copper, with a fair amount of muted rose and gold shimmer. The color coverage is mostly opaque. MAC Hearts-a-Beatin’ is more orange with just gold shimmer. Bobbi Brown Beach has less shimmer. MAC Social Light is less brown. MAC Spree is less red.
  • Cut Loose is a really light white gold–it’s more like a warm white that’s gold-tinted and has gold shimmer. It settles into lip lines a lot, and it does not apply as evenly as it needs to look good alone. This is the kind of gloss that would work better over something else, because alone it just doesn’t cooperate. MAC Ethereal is sheerer, not as white. MAC A Quiet Roar is yellower. MAC Almondine is just slightly warmer.
  • Orange Tempera is a milky light-medium pink with opaque color coverage. Because of the creamy, milky finish, it does settle into lip lines. MAC Pure Magnificence is sheerer and appears a bit darker. MAC Peachstock has less pink. MAC Ready or Not! is peachier.
  • Riviera Life is a bright medium-dark orange with gold shimmer. This is really opaque on the lips and applies evenly–it was the best gloss out of the five. MAC Morange is a smidgen darker and has no shimmer. MAC Caqui is redder. Illamasqua Temper is redder.
  • Send Me Sailing is a medium-dark pinky-red with mostly neutral undertones. It has mostly opaque color coverage with some underlying translucency. I don’t usually have problems with lip products bleeding or feathering, but I experienced some minor feathering with this shade. MAC Russian Red is redder, less pink. MAC Cult of Cherry is a smidgen pinker. Chanel Triomphal is darker and has shimmer. MAC Wicked Ways is similar but has some shimmer.

MAC Lipglass is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste. It’s packaged in a clear tube with a navy blue glossy cap and white striping around the tube. It comes with a doe-foot applicator. The consistency of Lipglass is very thick and sticky. For a lot of readers, MAC is one of the stickier glosses they’ve come across. They can wear anywhere from two to five hours, depending on the color and its level of pigmentation. I tested out Cut Loose, Riviera Life, and Send Me Sailing for wear, and they wore for two and a half, four, and four and a half hours respectively.

Christine riviera life looks amazing on you. How would you compare cut loose to girl on board from surf baby collection. Thank you for all your work Christine.

I’m loving Blessedly Rich but I don’t like MAC lipglasses. Christine, or anyone, can you think of a good dupe that is equally opaque? 

…maybe it’s just me.. but your reviews on this particular collection make me wonder if MAC even tests their makeup before sending it out for people to buy. Overall this collection looks like a C. Which honestly just makes your job more important because people don’t want to waste their money on so/so products. I admire your dedication, passion, and honesty! Thanks Christine 🙂 

cut loose is hideous looking! and why is that pinky slimy gross one called orange tempara? I’m I missing somthing? lol. Love the red one on you tho, and your makeup is so pretty 🙂

My MAC MA let me play with a few of the items yesterday :). I have no idea what MAC was thinking with Orange Tempura. The name doesn’t really speak to the actual color and the color itself looked HORRID on me (I’m a NC50). Maybe it will work for some people? I loved Blessedly Rich and Send Me Sailing. Send Me Sailing looks amazing on you!

Hi Christine! I really love “Send Me Sailing” on you! And I’m wondering how you think “Morange” compares to “Riviera Life”?

Riviera Life is gorgeous!  I really love the packaging of this collection but was disappointed overall, so this might be my only purchase.

Riviera Life is gorgeous! I can’t say I’ve ever seen anything quite as horrid and unflattering as a visibly white lipgloss though! That’s a new one for me!

Well, the milky ones aren’t particularly nice, but the rest are actually quite pretty!  Send Me Sailing, Riviera, and Blessedly Rich look beautiful on you.

I already own  Blessedly Rich because it was part of a set in last years holiday collection, it’s a nice colour but I don’t wear it very often because it doesn’t go with every look. 

At first, I misread and thought Orange Tempera read “Orange Temptalia” lipglass. LOL.
Now I know why MAC puts out limited editions all the time…….so MAC can raise their prices when compare to their regular priced items of similar sort.  Other brands LE are the same price as their counterparts, not MAC.
