MAC Ray of Sunshine Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “nude.” It’s a medium-dark, orange with brown undertones and gold shimmer.

MAC Tender Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “light cool pink.” It’s a light, cool-toned pink with a cream finish. It settled into lip lines and applied unevenly, though it had semi-sheer pigmentation. It wore well for three hours on me. Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $20.00) is similar.

MAC Vibrant Vibe Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright fuchsia.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with blue undertones and an iridescent violet shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, and it applied so-so. The color wore well for four hours, though. Revlon Berry Allure (P, $7.99) is slightly darker. MAC Imperial Red (LE, $19.00) is less fuchsia.

MAC Wake Up! Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone red.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned red with slight shimmer. It settled just slightly into lip lines, and it looked even for the most part but wasn’t perfectly even. This shade wore well for four hours on me. MAC Viva Glam Rihanna (LE, $15.00) is less warm-toned, darker. Revlon Fatal Apple (P, $7.99) is less shimmery. NYX Sunrise (P, $4.99) is more shimmery, cooler-toned. NARS Hollywoodlawn (LE, $26.00) is darker, more orange. MAC Mango Sheen (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery. MAC Totally Fab (LE, $20.00) is more pigmented. Chanel Exces (P, $32.00) has less shimmer, warmer. Chanel Emoi (P, $32.00) has less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC Mineralize Glass ($22.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a new–and permanent!–lip gloss from MAC that heads to counters on March 6th but can be purchased online now. There are twelve shades in total, and this post features four that I tested. The formula is supposed to be hydrating and glossy, while there’s no real word on coverage, the shades are described as “pearlescent.” They feel like lighter-weight Lipglass with less tackiness, but they’re more of a medium-weight gloss with a moderately tacky texture that’s lightly hydrating and wears between two and four hours (depending on the shade). The applicator is a rounded rectangle and feels smoother than the typical doe foot, and it also has more give and flex, so it seems to apply the gloss more evenly. The color coverage seems to run semi-sheer; noticeable color but not fully opaque. I’m not keen on the packaging, as it is bulky and doesn’t store efficiently.

I’m enjoying seeing these glosses because many of them are cool or not so warm as to make me look off. I wish the cool ones were preforming a bit better!

As a long time MAC fan, I’m kind of disappointed because this new formula does not seem impressive or too different from Cremesheen Glasses (though at least, Mineralize Glasses have more product!), application is not even and the colors donΒ΄t look like something special that would make me want to spend $22…..my wallet is happy, but I miss seeing a MAC release that makes my heart flutter. I’m definitely more of a permanent product fan.
However, all the Mineralize Glasses you have reviewed look very pretty on you – you make everything look better!

There’s something about these that just falls flat. They’re not innovative? MAC has a lot of glosses, so it just doesn’t seem like a necessary formula.

I kinda like Ray of Sunshine. The swatch reminds me of Strictly Plutonic Cremesheen Glass, though I guess Ray of Sunshine is lighter. I might check it out when these glosses are officially released on counters to see if it’s a close enough replacement.

I cant get over how pretty vibrant vibe looks! All are such pretty spring shades! Christine, i havent bought a single mac lipglass yet, because i havent been able to decide on one, Do you have a ny favorites of a good starter for medium-tan skin tone which i coudnt go wrong with? I love coral & pink shades.

These are all quite sheer and medium in color, so I don’t think any would really be wrong – something like Tender would be the hardest shade to wear, but something like New Love, Ray of Sunshine, etc. is easy to wear.

If only tender was the slightest bit more opaque and i would be in love! But then again, it appears as though it would look lovely paired with st germain
