MAC Sugarsweet Sneak Peek Lip Swatches

Saint Germain Lipstick

You know I had to do lip swatches, too 😉

Saint Germain lipstick came out in Euristocrats, which wasn’t a collection available stateside, so it is a treat to have it come out in a regularly available launch. It’s a pretty cool-toned lipstick; maybe a little pinker than Melrose Mood from Heatherette–the two are comparable if I’m remembering correctly.

Consume Me is a little blah, considering it’s incredibly sheer. It gives lips a glossy finish with a little bit of shimmer. For those curious about the packaging, it is very much (if not exactly like) Couture/Stylistics lipglass packaging. Even the applicator feels the same; which is a skinny doe-foot applicator that doesn’t pick up a whole lotta product. I’d say the formula of this gloss isn’t much like lipglass, because it isn’t thick at all (which may be the result of the applicator…). It also didn’t feel very sticky to me. I did try to mess up the color layers, and I didn’t succeed. You can see the color punch into the next one when you put the wand back, but the color does return to its normal layer pretty quickly. (It was kind of fun trying!)

Saint Germain is absolutely hotttttttttttt with Your skin tone 😀
when i am tanned in the summer,than it would be also great for me 😀
its so cool You can show it to us so soon….


Saint Germain is GORGEOUSGORGEOUSGORGEOUS!! It’s very similar to Pink Nouveau lipstick but this is defiantly a lighter shade but way more vivid. I am defiantly going to have to get this if I can!

Going by how it looks in the tube, I wanted Consume Me, but seeing it on, it’s a bit boring. As much so as Saint Germain is WOW!

I am soooooooooooooooooo in love with Saint Germain! So in love! Now that’s what you call a “bold statement”!

I love it!
Can we get a full face look with that?

I’m so glad you posted all the info on the glosses, now my lemming for them has been killed !! Unfortunately they’re not my cup of tea.

Agree with Phantom Goddess. I think MAC is putting out some inferior colors/quality now. Quite frankly I would prefer to put my money into YSL Volupte, Chanel hydrabase, Armani silk, or Cle de peau. I have found these lines have elegant colors, great finish, and are more interesting than some of the MAC. HK was not so great —

Saint Germain looks terrible. I thought it would be more like Strayin’. I have no idea why people have been raving about that lipstick… what’s going on with MAC products? They are either bad quality or repromotes these days…

The gloss is a big disappointment – however, it does mean I can spend less $! Saint Germain is not the type of colour I would usually try, but I’ll try it when it comes out.

it looks like a lot of people hate Saint German. I don’t hate it, it’s a unique colour you wouldn’t see often, but I wouldn’t wear it. I also think that MAC is a bit boring these days!! The originality’s gonee :/

soooooo excited for st germain!! i wanted consume me (if only cause it has green in it, lol) but i will skip it probably, which is good for saving me money!

I’m not in love with either. St. Germain looks…I don’t know…weird. Consume Me is not consuming , lol. However, if anyone could pull them off, it would be Christine 🙂

St. Germain does look like a Lady Gaga color. Or Xtina will wear it with her Pucci. I’m holding out for Style Warrior.

Saint Germain is giving me a heart attack….I LOVE IT. Consume Me is totally boring and not worth the money. I’m glad…that means more money in my pocket.

I love Saint Germain, I think it’s supposed to be the closest dupe to Melrose Mood from Heatherette…Consume Me is wayy too sheer though, I’ll definitely be skipping those glosses!

It does seem kind of similar to Melrose Mood. I don’t own MM so I can’t do a direct comparison, unfortunately!

Saint Germain looks nice, but I don’t think it will work on me (NC40). Consume Me looks like something I’d wear over lipstick, so it doesn’t draw me. I’d prefer a lipglass that could be worn on its own or over, not one that has to be worn over a lipstick. Yeah, wallet is getting happy!

Yay St. Germain is the pink i have been searching for. If it looks like that I am on it. I have been looking for a dupe for melrose mood and this may be it!!!!

I have also been wanting a color like St. Germain! I’m so excited, can’t wait, I will stock up like there’s no tomorrow, haha! Thanks for the swatches you really help me a lot b/c I like to see before I buy. Blessings!

I think melrose mood (MM) should be repromoted!!!!!!!! My friends got MM and it is lovely, but i missed out so sad! No one wants to swap it on makeupalley.
