Marvelous Max

MAC Marvelous Max Lipglass ($21.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a rich, marigold yellow with strong, warm undertones and a pearlized, cream-based finish. For this type of shade–which is rare in a gloss–it actually went on a lot better than anticipated!

  • Medium coverage
  • Light-medium thickness, tacky
  • Could have applied more evenly, prone to settling into lip lines
  • Longer-wearing (typically 5 hours for this formula), moderately hydrating

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.1 oz. - $210.00 Per Ounce

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I have found that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

Isn’t it just a 50s song? I haven’t seen season four yet, but I don’t remember a specific mention in the previous seasons? To be fair, it’s been a while. I enjoy Stranger Things, but I’m not obsessed or anything. Growing up in the 80s (the right proper 80s where everyone still had shag carpeting, wood paneling, and we all rode our bikes all day) I like the immersive feeling they put in to the set design. Having said that…..season two wasn’t very good. Seasons one and three? Quite good.

It’s just referencing a character named Robin. I think they just thought Rockin Robin was a cute name for it. The Rockin part doesnt actually reference anything in the show, the character is a bit of a nerd so not even involved in Rock music or anything.

I brought the MAC Marvelous Max yellow Lip Glass just to see how I can wear it. After finding that I love wearing yellow blush as a topper to more cool blushes that I want to warm up. I’m more open to experimenting with unusual makeup colors.
