MAC Itsy Bitsy Lipglass
MAC Itsy Bitsy Lipglass

MAC Itsy Bitsy Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is an icy, pinky-lavender with cool undertones and multi-colored pearl along with larger, copper flecks of sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage with all of the shimmer in it; the base color seemed sheerer and tended to blend in with my natural lip color, but there was a ton of shimmer in this one that made the gloss appear more opaque applied. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Huda Beauty Mystical (P, $18.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). ColourPop Ponyland (LE, $10.00) is more muted (90% similar).

MAC Dilly Dazzle Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had medium coverage with a light-medium weight texture that was noticeably tacky and had a tendency to highlight lip lines. While a lot of the shades from the Little MAC collection weren’t streaky, this one was surprisingly difficult to even out on the lips. On me, the color wore for five hours. Cle de Peau Fast Lane (15) (P, $48.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar).

MAC How Chic is This (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). Anastasia Orchid (-, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Love You Big Time Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark magenta purple with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, lavender and pink shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that could have applied more evenly. The color didn’t pool into lip lines like some of the Lipglasses do, so that was an upside. If you don’t mind the lack of opacity, it is a more unique shade that wears longer (five hours) and is comfortable to wear. Pat McGrath Paraphernalia (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Fast Lane (15) (P, $48.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Huda Beauty Fearless (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (80% similar). MAC How Chic is This (LE, $20.00) is darker (80% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Little MAC Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a miniature-sized version of MAC’s regular Lipglass, so the formula is exactly the same and even includes shades previously released as limited edition. The Lipglass formula is supposed to be pigmented, shiny, and hydrating. I find that pigmentation can range from very sheer to totally opaque from shade to shade–there is a ton of variance–with a light-medium to medium-weight texture that’s thicker, moderately to very tacky, and lasts four to six hours. I don’t mind Lipglass myself, despite the tackiness, but if you loathe sticky glosses, Lipglass is probably not going to be your number one favorite! They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste. For comparison, full-sized MAC Lipglasses are $15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz. or $88.24/fl. oz. while the miniature-sized is $125.00/fl. oz. The smaller size makes the most sense for those who like more variety rather than more product or who do not typically finish a gloss.
