Star Memoir

MAC Star Memoir Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and fine, violet and pink pearl throughout. It had medium color coverage with a smooth, light-medium consistency that was moderately tacky and felt thicker, but it was very comfortable to wear and smoothed out some of my lip lines. There was a bit of gloss that sank into the deeper lip lines on my lower lip, but all of my lip lines seemed finer. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.1 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

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 have found 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.

Starf*cker

MAC Starfucker Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of lighter violet micro-sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied unevenly, sank into and emphasized my lip lines, and was generally an unflattering product to wear on its own.

If you apply liner all-over or use it on top of a lipstick, you’ll have much better luck, though I would take care to apply a bit less as the heavier, tackier formula can sometimes cause satin and cream-finish lipsticks to have too much slip! It lasted for five hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Yep, that was my first thought too. I mean you couldn’t really advertise this shade in a shopping centre….the discusssion becomes about the name and not about the shade/product.

I want this so badly just so I can tell someone what it’s called and see their face lol. The color looks really pretty and maybe could perform better as a topper.

Yes. I teach highschool and hear the “f-bomb” every day (more and more and more with each passing year). I hear it at the gym (and usually give the speaker a dirty look – honestly, can’t I get away from stuff like that at the gym, at least?). It’s not clever; it’s not chic; it’s not kind or mindful or any of those things that make every day life a bit nicer. And yes, I know it’s “just a word” but it’s an ugly one.

Star Memoir over Starstruck lipstick gives me the most perfect fuchsia berry lips! It is currently one of my favorite lip combos. Only problem is my wardrobe doesn’t have much that goes with it, except when I wear black.

As for that other shade, I’m actually RELIEVED that it didn’t do so well and thereby tempt me to buy it! That name is far too vulgar for me anyway. Surprised MAC went with a name like that.

I only get concerned about culturally insensitive, appropriative, racist, etc. names. I find a lot of the language/discussion about swearing and cuss words being vulgar, “classless,” and so on to often be problematic as a lot of it is rooted in misogyny/classism.

I rarely see it mentioned, but it’s always bothered me greatly! I’m really working to eliminate the word “classy” from my vocab (never something I used often, but it occasionally slips in).

The first color is really pretty. I love purple lip colors, so I was hoping that the second color would be great, but as soon as I saw the photo of your lips, I knew it was a dud. The name isn’t anything that I could ever recommend to people, unfortunately. Personally, I don’t use words like that (I have a 6 year old child that hears everything).

Honestly I was disappointed with Starf*cker being so bad , I wanted to like it despite the name . But that may be because of a band that I listen to has the same name lol a nice color and topper but maybe I’ll try something else .

No to the name and No to the product. That was easy. I have said a lot here but it is just a “me” thing. I am just too conservative for today’s hip and cool names!!

Hmm let’s see. I wonder how this would look over tom ford’s f-ing fabulous lipstick. Maybe it could be used with the basic b palette and diamond sharts on the eyes. Don’t forget orgasm on the cheeks! Spritz with lost cherry perfume and the Desperate To Be Edgy look complete!

Star Memoir is beautiful. Starf*cker SHOULD be better with an attention grabbing name like that, I would think. The name doesn’t bother me, just made me giggle. I have a potty mouth and I’ve never said that word. I thought the most common name was “groupie”. I don’t know, I expected a banger for a color, not one deserving of a D rating. It’s a waste of a name LOL

The f word doesn’t bother me — I say it all the time. But “Starf*cker” was the nickname given to a (fictional) serial killer in a book I read recently, so that makes it especially unappealing to me. Mmm. Serial killer lips!
