Russian Red

MAC Russian Red Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly and had minimal settling (I couldn’t tell at all that there was any in person, partially as the color was so bright and the finish so glossy). The gloss had a smooth feel going on, plush but not heavy, and somewhat tacky. It wore well for almost six hours and was lightly hydrating.

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.

Ruby Woo

MAC Ruby Woo Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with cool undertones and a cream finish. The major differences between this and Russian Red are that it appears darker and more muted. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t opaque, that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. It felt somewhat tacky on, but it sat well and felt smooth going on. This shade lasted for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Baby's a Vamp

MAC Baby’s a Vamp Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, burgundy red with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. There seemed to be barely-there pearl, but I wouldn’t describe it as shimmery at all. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly and didn’t appear streaky. There was a touch of color that had pulled into lip lines, but I couldn’t tell at a regular viewing distance. The gloss wore nicely for six hours on me and felt moisturizing.

Yellow Jacket

MAC Yellow Jacket Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and fine, lime green-hued pearl. It tinted my lips a greenish-yellow and lightened them up a bit from the base color while adding a medium amount of pearl. For as light as the gloss was, it applied better than anticipated, though it could have been smoother on the lips. I was able to wear this one for almost five hours, and it was hydrating over time.

These reds are so lush and rich!!! Of the 3, I’m really liking Baby’s A Vamp. It looks like the type of ” vampy” shade I’m drawn to.

But the biggest surprise for me is that I love Yellow Jacket! As a topper to warm up and add zing to cooler shades, though not a shade I’d feel comfortable wearing alone.

Ruby Woo and Baby’s a Vamp are my favourites from the whole collection!! 😀

I only own Rebel in the lip glass formula. And I’m kinda regretting not picking up the old packaging!

I like all three reds a lot, and I kind of love Yellow Jacket, I think it’s the green that makes it special and really attracts my eyes. Since I can’t find a green lipstick that suits me, I so wish I could get Kale (is that what it’s called?) from Bite, but it seems by far too complicated. So, maybe this is the green for me.
