MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes one shade of Dazzleglass and three shades of Cremesheen Glass. For long-time collectors, this will be your best bet between the three lipgloss sets as three of the shades are new (Narcissus is a repromote). MAC’s holiday lipgloss sets are actually one of their best values, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each! But this is the crazy part: full-sized Dazzleglasses are a mere 0.06 oz., while full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).

Like Magic is described as a “clear gloss with silver reflects pearlized pigments.” It’s a clear gloss with good dosage of silver and pink sparkle. It adds noticeable sparkle and glossiness to the lips, and I think it’s wearable on its own, but it could also work to layer with your favorite lipstick. It wore well for three hours and had a light-medium consistency with some tackiness. MAC Pleasure Principle (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Like Venus (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Impossibly Sweet (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Purpurine (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar).

Be an Angel, Darling is described as a “baby pink with shimmer.” It’s a light, pastel pink with fine white shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a glossy, high-shine finish, but some of the milky pink color settled into lip lines. The shimmer helps to make it less noticeable, but it may be better over a lipstick. The gloss lasted for two hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Oyster Girl (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Gold (P, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sugarrimmed (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Jouer St. Tropez (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Look Who's Here (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is lighter, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Light English Red (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Huda Beauty Angelic (P, $18.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Date with Violet is described as a “mid-tone mauvey violet.” It’s a soft, medium pinky-mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with some milkiness, which led to color pulling into lip lines, though it wasn’t as bad as some shades of Cremesheen Glass (but it’s there). The texture is lightweight, creamy, comfortable with a non-sticky texture. On me, the gloss lasted for two hours. MAC Dress the Part (LE, $20.00) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (DC, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (DC, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Tasmania (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sugar Pink (P, $45.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Lots of Laughs (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Narcissus is described as an “intense orchid purple.” It’s a medium-dark, pink-tinted purple with a cream finish. This shade had semi-sheer pigmentation with a creamy, lightweight consistency that was comfortable on. It doesn’t apply evenly, which is its major issue, followed by shorter wear at three hours. Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Dilly Dazzle (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Cle de Peau Fast Lane (15) (P, $48.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 501 Purple (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Love You Big Time (P, $10.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC How Chic is This (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). YSL Pourpre Preview (16) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Nine (Watercolor) (LE, ) is darker, less pigmented, lower quality (85% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Heroine (P, $17.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) (DC, $28.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (80% similar).
