MAC By Request Lipglasses

Surprise! We’ll be seeing matching MAC Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) shades to the By Request Lipsticks I reviewed last week. They’ll be launching online April 1st (along with the lipsticks), and they are limited edition. Note, Pink Poodle (By Request) is different from the Pink Poodle shade available in the permanent range.

MAC Glam Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is brightened, medium red with cool, blue undertones and a glossy finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and the gloss wore well for five hours on me. Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is shimmery. Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is similar. Milani Photo Flash (DC, $6.49) is darker. MAC Impassioned (LE, $15.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Hoop Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rose-pink with a creamy, glossy finish. It seemed to have more neutral undertones than cool or warm ones. It had semi-opaque color coverage, applied mostly evenly, and lasted for four hours on me while being neither hydrating nor drying. MAC Go for Girlie (LE, $20.00) is less glossy. Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is warmer. Maybelline Mauve Mystique (025) (P, $8.99) is cooler-toned, darker. Edward Bess First Kiss (P, $30.00) is brighter. Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $19.00) is less glossy. MAC Viva Glam Nicki (LE, $15.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Pink Poodle (By Request) Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a cool-toned, iridescent-shimmered fuchsia-magenta with blue undertones. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, applied mostly evenly, and wore well for four and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Crush (P, $19.00) has no shimmer, more muted. Milani Flashy (P, $7.49) is lighter, more shimmery, less glossy. MAC Style Packed (LE, $15.00) is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Embrace Me (LE, $15.00) is darker, less cool-toned.

These by requests are mostly so bright! Christine I remember an earlier debate on your blog about who wears these colors. They seem to sell but I rarely see people wearing them. They are obviously popular if they’re being brought back “by request”. Do we buy many colors we don’t end up wearing? I certainly seem to and would love to know I’m not alone…

From the photos, the Glam lipglass looks a lot pinker than the lipstick. Is that just the effect of gloss being semi-transparent and less saturated with pigment than lipstick, or is the color itself actually different?

Lisa Avatar

Oh My Christine….They all look gorgeous on you but my favorite is “Lipglass over glam! I wish, I could pull off bolder/brighter colors but I always feel so self conscious πŸ™ But Hoop will be mine!!!!! Lately, I’ve been so unhappy with MAC but these lipglasses might help turn things around.

Hi Christine,

I don’t know if I missed it or not but what is the difference between LE Pink Poodle with this collection and the Perm Pink Poodle? The glitter??

Adhishree Avatar

STUNNINNNGG! Pink Poodle on you is perfection. I need to own it! Sadly, LE collections launch around 6-8 months later in India, as compared to US/Canada. Bummer. There’s always Nordstrom.com though πŸ˜›

I’m not a fan of any lipsticks with shimmer, so I don’t like the Pink Poodle lipstick, but I LOVE the Pink Poodle Lipglass! A little shimmer is okay in a gloss. For me, at least.

Jenny Avatar

Oh, Christine, you have made me want these, and I didn’t buy a single one when I picked up the lipsticks! I’m regretting it big time, haha!

If *a friend* already bought Girl about Town lipglass a couple of years ago, would her life change dramatically by getting Pink Poodle(BR) lipglass? Do you think they’re at all similar? Thank you! πŸ™‚
