Oyster Girl

MAC Oyster Girl Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light, cooler pink paired with warmer, gold pearl that is plentiful enough that it gave the gloss a warmer tone overall. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff that applied fairly evenly. There was just a smidgen of gloss that sat in my deeper lip lines, but it looked smooth from a distance due to the high-shine finish. The gloss was moderately tacky, lasted for four hours, and was lightly moisturizing over time.

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 find 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.

Saint Germain

MAC Saint Germain Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with strong, cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied decently, but there were areas where it could have been more even, and there was color that had pulled into my lip lines. The consistency felt somewhat stickky, but the gloss itself was smooth, not too heavy, and comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted.

Pink Nouveau

MAC Pink Nouveau Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium bubblegum pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage, though the natural lip color still came through (seemed more noticeable on my upper lip). The texture was smooth, moderately tacky, but while it spread easily, there was some color that gathered in my lip lines. This shade wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

Snob

MAC Snob Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a sligthly muted, medium pink with cooler undertones and a cream finish; it almost appears as a gray-tinged pink. It had good pigmentation, though it was not completely opaque, and while there were no visible streaks, there was color that had pooled into my lip lines. The gloss felt smooth going on, not heavy but had some weight on the lips, and was tacky. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.

I used to hate MAC lipglass. I think they must have reformulated the gloss bc it is much more comfortable to wear. Oyster Girl is the color that brought me back to these glosses. It is so pretty and so nice to wear over lipsticks. Love it. Top rate for me!

While it doesn’t look like the formula has changed, I dislike that they have decreased the quantity and increased the price (the double-whammy!). When Tarte similarly halved the size of their cheek stains a year or two ago, but kept the price the same, I felt the same way.

I make it a point to not purchase products where the brands have done this – it comes across as very shady, like they are trying to dupe the customer, saying “oh, it’s a packaging upgrade!”, when really they are just trying to charge their customers more for less or the same product. But I digress, all companies should try to increase profit, and it is difficult to fault them for that.

Yeah, I feel like it’s either a greedy move or the company’s way of readjusting the price to retain certain margin levels without the consumer “seeing” a price increase, though MAC does regular price increases, too.

Oyster Girl is so pretty! I love the subtle shimmer it has. It’ll look beautiful on top of lipsticks and liners

Oyster Girl was my JAM back in like 2003-2004. I loved it so much!

Pink Nouveau is my perfect pink nowadays. At least on me, it’s the perfect shade that’s noticeably pink but not too in your face and not too crazy. I’m an attorney in court a lot so I don’t like anything that’s too “LOOK AT ME!” and it’s the perfect shade for me.

Funny how Oyster Girl was always a “to get” for me, but I didn’t jump on it while it was still in the OG packaging. Well, now I’m either going to finally get either it or Sugar rimmed. Toppers really help during the hotter months to keep lipstick in place while having to sip and chug water ALL day long! ?

Haha! I understand that feeling, Mary. For me, personally, I’d still be annoyed but probably would still buy shades if I really liked them – but it would certainly give me pause.
