MAC Tartan Tale Chapter 2: Sassy Pink Lassies Lipglass Set

This year, MAC has released three different miniature lipglass sets. Each set contains five limited edition shades of lipglass, each containing 0.08 oz. of product. Like the other sets from Chapter 2, they are housed in a metal tin that features the tartan pattern on the outside. They also have a plastic insert to keep the glosses standing up evenly within the tin, but it can be easily removed for more storage. Each set retails for $29.50.

Lipglasses are sheer to opaque in color, but they have a tackier, stickier texture. They are supposed to be vanilla-scented, but I did find a couple throughout the sets that smelled like plastic. These have the same sponge-tipped applicators that full-sized lipglasses have, but it seems less spongy and less gloss is pulled through on each pass (not necessarily a bad thing there!).

This set includes: Electro Lush (medium mauve), Fab Fun (pale crystal pink), Frozen Dream (medium pink rose), Sassy Lassy (bright pink fuchsia), and The Wee Coquette (naked neutral pink).

  • Electro Lush is a creamy medium-pink with a little plum to it and white micro-shimmer. This is a repromote from Flashtronic (2007). I can’t think of a great dupe in the permanent line for this one.
  • Fab Fun is a sheer, milky pink gloss base with large flecks of silvery-white shimmer and glitter. It looks a lot like Morning Glory (Lustreglass) or even Like Venus (Dazzleglass).
  • Frozen Dream is a semi-sheer, cool-toned lilac pink with lots of pale pink and white shimmer. This is a repromote from Chill (2008). It’s not quite as pale as Cultured, but they are similar.
  • Sassy Lassy is an opaque, creamy fuchsia that pulls very blue. It also has subtle pale pink shimmer. It’s a lot bluer and cooler-toned than Pink Poodle.
  • The Wee Coquette is a cool-toned, white-beige with soft white shimmer. It’s very milky, and it does settle into liplines. It’s a lot like Fleshpot lipstick in lipglass form. It’s so pale it makes my lips look a little purple.

A normal lipglass contains 0.17 oz. of product and retails for $14.50. In this set, you’ll receive 0.40 oz. worth of lipglass for $29.50. This works out to be $85.29/oz. for an individual [full-sized] lipglass and $73.75/oz. for the lipglass set. It’s also worth pointing out that for the price of two full-sized shades, you’ll have five shades to choose from. If you’re someone who doesn’t stick with one gloss long enough to finish, the sets will be more worthwhile for you.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I like the way these colors look together; it’s a good variation on pink, though they all lean rather cool-toned.

I wasn’t going to get a lipglass set, as I barely wear gloss…But if I get one this one would be most appealing to me.
The colors I like I probably already have similar in gloss…I’ll think about it.

Christine,
Thank you so so so much for all the Tartan Tale Reviews you have been doing lately! As a current graduate student myself, I really do appreciate the time and effort you give to your blog, amidst school work! You are awesome!

I like all of the colors except for The Wee Coquette. I don’t love the tacky feel of Lip Glasses but these are LE shades and I know I personally don’t have any dupes. Okay I think i might have just talked myself into purchasing… Thanks again for your swatches and info!

So, I’m confused. I thought that this was supposed to be released online today, but I don’t see it. Is it supposed to be released online next week or what? If anyone knows, help is much appriciated. Thanks!

I dig Electro Lush and Sassy Lassy, but the others look blah. Too pale, I know they will make me look sickly. 2/5 is not enough for a buy, alas. I have yet to find anything in the Xmas collection I want : / I sort of want the Viva Glam lip bag, but prefer VI to V.

Aahh everything looks amazing. Sassy Lassy and Frozen Dream look like they would be my favorites. I’ve been waiting a long time for these swatches, I couldn’t find them anywhere else.

Christine, congrats on that blogging Scholarship. Voted for you, and hope you win! Good luck. (told my peeps to vote for you)

Great swatches, love Sassy Lassy.

Do you know if these smaller tubes count towards the Back 2 Mac recycling program? If so, you get nearly a free product included in the price. Thanks for the great swatches!

I have Pink Poodle sitting on my desk and I was like “Wow, Sassy Lassy looks EXACTLY like that!”. Somehow I knew you would catch that (and note the differences!). I will note that PP looks more pigmented than Sassy Lassy on actual lips, but I have naturally bright pink lips so that may be the reason why. Thanks, Christine!

Hi, thanks so much for the swatches, I live in Singapore and we dont get mac products launches at the same time as in US, so its really useful to refer to your blog before our launch date to know exactly what we should get …. thank you so much!! looking forward to getting some of the sets …..

Hi Christine! I know this isn’t exactly related, but I would love to see you review and swatch some of the NARS lip gloss sets for the holiday season, like Crazy Heart and Follow the Boys. Thanks!

I love Sassy Lassie, what lip liner would you use to make the color pop a little more? Is this lip gloss similar to ‘Girl Around Town’ lipstick??

Hmm… I’m getting the coral set but I am reconsidering this one.

I can’t pull off Sassy Lassy or the Wee Coquette, so I’m deciding whether 3 MINI lipglasses are worth the 35.50 CAN.

Just picked this up yesterday and all the colors look great! The only one that didn’t sit well with me was Wee Coquette but loving 4/5 is pretty good imo.
