Please Me

MAC Please Me Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, given the type of color and texture, but there was noticeable color that had settled into my lip lines as milky consistencies often do. The gloss wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.

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.

Angel

MAC Angel Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a brighter, light-medium pink with warm undertones and fine, pink pearl. It had nearly opaque color payoff that applied evenly across the lips. I had a touch of color that was visible in my deeper lip lines, but I did not feel like it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The gloss was smooth, noticeably tacky but not goopy, and comfortable to wear. This shade lasted for five hours and was slightly hydrating.

Pinkarat

MAC Pinkarat Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and lots of gold pearl. It had semi-sheer to medium pigmentation that went on evenly and smoothly on the lips without emphasizing my lip lines. There was ample shimmer, but the color itself might be different based on your own natural lip color due to the sheerness. MAC did not describe this one as sheer, unfortunately, but I think if you like (or don’t mind) the sheerness, it’s a fun shade for layering and everyday wear alone. The texture was smooth, slightly thinner and not quite as tacky as others in the range, and comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted for.

Nymphette

MAC Nymphette Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and lots of gold shimmer. It is actually quite similar to Pinkarat, but Nymphette runs warmer and has larger gold shimmer particles. The consistency was smooth, light-to-medium in weight with some tackiness, and easy to spread across the lips. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage–mostly in the form of shimmer–and lasted for four and a half hours. The formula was somewhat moisturizing on me.

All of the last 3 look wonderful, but I am looking at Nymphette and Angel for future”to gets”! Please Me is nice, but I definitely feel that I could very easily go for a DS dupe for it if I really wanted to. But my favorite is definitely Nymphette!

Huh, Please Me seems lighter and less opaque compared to the initial version from a few years ago (Lips & Tips collection).

I have a totally different lighting set-up and camera – however, the color is slightly different as it is not as thick.

Thanks for clarifying, Christine! 🙂 I do remember the initial version being quite thick; I loved the tube I had and used it up, so I’ll check it out the next time I’m at a MAC store.

My local MAC store in Ireland told me recently Nymphette had been discontinued with the new packaging and I was DEVASTATED!!! As I had just gone in after running out to get it and it’s one of my all time favourite pieces of makeup. Thrilled it’s not discontinued.

Is the formula different with the added oils Christine?

MAC said the formula didn’t change, and if there were any tweaks, I definitely didn’t feel it personally – at least not compared to most newer Lipglasses, which generally have a smoother, less thick and tacky feel overall (but it is still a stickier gloss).

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
