MAC Riveting Collection: Lipglass Review, Photos, Swatches

Lucky for your pocketbook, there are only two lipglasses to take a look at from MAC’s Riveting Collection: Rock Out (officially described as a light icy silver with pearl) and True Babe (officially described as a creamy mid-tone bright blue pink). I don’t think neither are must-haves in the sense that unless you’re drawn to one of these and you don’t have something similar at home, you don’t absolutely have to have these too.

Lipglass ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)

  • Rock Out is a sheer, silver shimmered gloss with a very sheer, kind of whitish-silver color base. I didn’t find it all that wearable on its own, personally. It reminded me of an older limited edition lipglass–Lightning–as well as more recently released She-Zam dazzleglass (from holiday ’09). Obviously, since it’s a lipglass, it has a totally different texture and feel than a dazzleglass–it’s thicker, stickier, cheaper (and you get more), and lasts longer (because it’s stickier).
  • True Babe is a creamy, rich bright pink with cool blue undertones. It’s like a cooler, more fuchsia version of Pink Poodle lipglass. I can’t think of any immediate dupes off the top of my head, but I know MAC has released quite a few hot pink lipglasses in the past few years. What’s nice about this one is that the coverage is nice and opaque, and despite its creamy look, it doesn’t settle into lip lines as much (and is not noticeable from normal viewing distance–aka, not 10x magnification of my lips!).

What do you think? Either of these for you?

Rock Out actually does look very wearable on you Christine! It’s sheer and it’s not crazy and tinsel-y!

True Babe looks good on you too though, even I may go and try it on once Riveting comes out to London, UK.

Will the riveting collection only be available at selfridges in the UK as this is what I have heard from mac artists or will it be available online aswell ?

well, these may have dupes in other l/e collections or in the regular line, i don’t have those, so i figured i’d take a chance on both… first time i’ve ordered on line

i wonder if True Babe is going to be similar to Loud & Lovely coming out with “Too Fabulous” collection…what do you think? i’m so torn ! I want a bright pink gloss , but not a “bold” one…maybe I’ll wait for the new cremesheen glasses!
