Social Light looks gorgeous on lips, swatched, i dont like it. Everything else looks very milky, my opinion. I migh pick up social light πŸ™‚

I had all of the glosses in this collection on my need-list. Unfortunately when I find COLORS that I actually like, they look like crap on the lips. Won’t be getting any of these. Oh well, more money to spend on other stuff then.

Something totally unrelated. Have you changed your foundation lately? Your skin looks so much better! Not that it looked bad or anything before, but no it looks absolutely perfect!

Social Light looks gorgeous and a lovely warm colour for the Autumn (hello from the UK! :D), but the others really are a miss, which is a shame as they look so good in the tube.

Still, there’s plenty of other goodies in the collection by the look of things so it’ll be good to save some money somewhere!

Augh! Not a fan of glosses or glasses. I can’t wait to see your reviews of the lipsticks. Now that’s something I am seldomly ever disappointed in.

Ok yeah i thought i would like all of the lipglasses..but good thing you exist haa :p because the only one i like is social light!! πŸ™‚ looks gorgeous!

Social Light is absolutely gorgeous. I wonder why some these glosses (social Light in particular) look cracked in the tube. Normally one would expect that from old gloss–any idea what’s going on there?

Eeeew – bar Social Light these look hideous. 1 lipglass hit on the wallet is better than 4 though. Looking forward to seeing swatches of the other 3.

Social light looks awesome in the tube and swatched, but not so much color on the lips. I have so much sparkly lipglass… i think it might end up looking all the same =[
I think I’ll get Spite too because it’s gorgeous on tanner skins!

these all look gorgeous in the tubes, but social light is the only one nice enough on the lips, and I will be passing on these anyways.

Huh. I had Illicit when it originally came out years ago, and it was one of my favorites at the time, but I remember it looking MUCH more pink and glistening than this version? (and more opaque)

Ditto, your skin looks poreless! I’m pretty disappointed with the glosses though, with such a big collection I was hoping for something more impressive

Yuk! What happened to the pigmentation? MAC Lipglasses are known for the semi-opaqueness. I do like the Social Light. It would work well as a summer lipglass since my lips are so pigmented.

Thanks for the swatches, Christine.

Can you back to mac for limited edition items–i’m thinking if they’re the same price as regular items its ok…? social light looks promising. I keep telling myself not to buy anymore mac glosses because i never end up reaching for them in my collection.

It depends on the store – some are fine with it, others are not. I know that it’s usually not allowed if it’s in special packaging (which this isn’t), but I’d still double-check with your local store!

Curvaceous looks alright but I absolutely DETEST the lipglass formula. And I’m a lipgloss kinda girl!
I’m glad Illamasqua has a suitable dupe – I’ve been meaning to try their glosses, so I’m adding Move to my list πŸ™‚

IMO Social Light looks kinda…boring. Ladies, you’ll face no competition from me for it XD!

Overall, I’m really disappointed with this collection. From the promo pics I thought *everything* (kinda wish I was exaggerating) was going to be fantastic… What a let down πŸ™

The darkest shade is the best. People complaining about the sticky texture have caused MAC to tone down the pigment in these, and those look awful. πŸ™ I prefer the original Lipglass. All of mine go on evenly with good pigment.

Oooh, I love Lipglasses (I almost never wear lipstick!) and Social Light and Plum Fun look amazing! They’re also colors I don’t have yet… I may need to try and get these.

I love the color of Social Light but I wish it weren’t so sparkly. I have Viva Glam VI and it looks really similar to Social Light. Plum Fun looks awesome, but dupable.

Plum fun is a doable tempting winner. The rest are F’s. Across between “got milk?” and “I just took a Swig of pepto!” Social light is nice, too. I will say if people like this shade range, the little L’oreal lipglosses that are always on sale at walgreens hit this on the head and with even, nice application. They’re the ones with the oblong, squarish gold caps. For awhile they were $2.49.
That being said, in the full face shots Christine, you still look beautiful. But it’s a case of you helping out the lipgloss. Should be the other way around.

I kinda like Social Light. It’s got that tiny super frosty metallic shimmer look… I dunno how it’d look on me, but that kinda finish really makes me think of winter.
Plum Fun is beautiful. The other ones would look much better over a lipstick or on someone with lighter lips, in my opinion… The Wee Coquette looks like it could be absolutely lovely. ~
