MAC Lightness of Being Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz. each) includes five new, limited edition shades. MAC released this formula (as part of the permanent range) earlier this year, and there wasn’t a whole lot of information on them regarding color coverage then (Nordstrom lists a description of “delivers luscious color” now), but they consistently ran semi-sheer to semi-opaque with noticeable color and coverage. These are all quite sheer, and with the exception of On Cue, they look nearly the same applied aside from shimmer level. They’re inconsistent with the permanent formula and its 12-shade range. All five shades disappeared within two hours of wear and had a lightly tacky, neither drying nor hydrating formula that was vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste. Sheer gloss may not be everyone’s cup of tea (which is why I think it’s important brands distinguish sheer vs. medium vs. opaque shades and formulas well), but it is surprising to see five shades at this level of sheerness.

Update: As of March 2016, MAC’s website lists these as a “sheer” gloss. Ratings have been updated to reflect that change — keep in mind that sheer doesn’t mean colorless/clear, and a few of these were nearly colorless.

MAC Beautiful Moves Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale mint with pearl.” It’s a cool-toned, ultra-sheer milky white with pearl. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Boundless Energy Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “violet pink.” It is a very, very lightly pink-tinted clear gloss with a subtle milky quality to it. It looks like clear gloss on, so any clear gloss would easily replicate the look. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Loose & Lively Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “peachy orange.” It is a very light, milky peach with sheer color coverage that goes on a bit unevenly and settles slightly into lip lines. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC On Cue Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “gold pearl.” It’s a gold-shimmered, mostly clear gloss. The shimmer has a slight grit to it after an hour of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Poetic Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale champagne pink with pearl.” It’s a really light, white-peach with soft pearl. It had sheer color coverage–more so than other shades here–and settled into lip lines. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
