MAC Surf Baby: Lipglass

MAC Surf Baby Lipglases ($15.50 for 0.17 oz.) include four shades: Girl on Board (pale white gold), Good Lovin’ (soft peachy pink), Krazy Kahuna (warm mid-tone brown), and Strange Potion (soft coral pink).

  • Girl on Board is a semi-opaque white shimmered gloss. I see this working better for layering than on its own, though. It’s similar to Almondine (Spring Colour Forecast, ’10). The closest permanent dupe would probably be Underage, which leans a little pink.
  • Good Lovin’ is a sheer, beige-y nude with a little rosiness and beige and champagne shimmer. Β It seems similar to Prrr.
  • Krazy Kahuna is a reddened terracotta with very subtle flecks of white shimmer. It is nearly opaque on my lips. I can’t think of a dupe for this shade in the permanent range.
  • Strange Potion is a lightly pink shimmered, soft pinky-coral that’s semi-opaque in coverage. This was originally launched with Venomous Villains (’10). Pink Lemonade would be the closest dupe in the permanent range, but it is pinker.

MAC Lipglasses are vanilla-scented but taste-free. They are sticky glosses (some of the stickiest on the market) with a thicker consistency than your typical gloss, but they do wear a solid four hours on me as a result of the tackier formula. Pigmentation ranges from sheer to opaque, but all three of these shades are more pigmented than the average lipglass–even Girl on Board, which is more shimmer than color, covers my natural lip color a good deal.

Whew, thank goodness I already have Strange Potion because it’s the only one I would want. Well, until you are able to show us Good Lovin’. It may change then. πŸ™‚

$1,550 for .17 oz? Talk about a price jump. Tsk tsk mac. (lol just kidding)

So far the summer stash stack, strange potion, and gilded white are really catching my eye. Thank god! I was really starting to give up on Mac. I haven’t seen anything from them in a few years that has made me want to buy something.

Krazy Kahuna is beautiful but is it similar to Temper Tantra from the Peacocky collection? I have that and love it as well…

Darker, browner – not quite as rosy! They’re in the same family but this seems darker! πŸ™‚

Krazy Kahuna surprised me in the stock photos it looked like a boring brown but when swatched it’s quite lovely. I may break down and get it even though I told myself I was going to skip this collection. Now I have to worry about Good Lovin which I’m tempted to get on cute name alone:) I just hope it isn’t a dupe of Nymphette which I already own.

Strange Potion is definitely shouting “Summer!” to me. And, if my budget allows me, Krazy Kahuna will be added. Not too crazy about Girl on Board. What lipstick would be great to pair with Girl on Board (it doesn’t have to be from this collection)?

Anything medium to dark – because then it won’t wash out the color to something really light and pale but lighten it to something softer with enough color punch to keep it from being stark. I’d say over a warm coral or yellow-based pink.

Strange Potion is actually *completely* different than Strange Potion from VV. The latter was a juicy, jelly raspberry color with no pearl or shimmer, the former is a frosty coral. i have no idea why they would give them the same name!

oooh Krazy Kahuna looks like melted chocolate! yum πŸ™‚ wish i could pull off brown lip products :/ strange potion also lovely already got it from VVs though πŸ˜‰

I think the only reason Strange Potion looks different is because you were probably using a different angel/lighting/camera.
It’s pretty nonetheless!

My favorite sticky glosses are the Luzes Lipglos with DMAE by Racco Cosmetics. They have DMAE to prevent and treat wrinkles. πŸ˜‰

Hi Christine, I know you’ve posted about this before but I can’t find it…. How often do you exfoliate your lips? I’m trying to get mine in summer shape and I’m tempted to use my lip exfoliator every morning, but I’m not sure if that’s too much for delicate lip skin? Thanks!

I am sooooo excited for Krazy Kahuna!!! I saw a few swatches online where people layered it over Hibiscus, and the combination was amazing!!!

So, I have heard a lot of buzz around the internet from people tha thave gotten advanced samples of Surf Baby that Good Lovin smells and tastes a bit “off.” Christine, have you found that as well?

That is good to hear b/c I would like to check it out – It looks like it would be a nice sparkly wash over something like Hug Me. That is strange though that many are reporting that it smelled/tasted almost rancid – maybe they just got a cad batch, unfortunately.

I’m gonna have to grab a Good Lovin’, Strange Potion and Girl on Board, they’re beautiful. BTW Christine, I love your eye makeup here, the teal and white look amazing together!!

Nothing here for me… They alternate collections between terra cotta/ corals/ browns and blue reds/ pinks/plummy. Next time.

I’m so bummed. Good Lovin’ is sold out online already! πŸ™ But I ordered Strange Potion, can’t wait to get it! Hopefully I will get a chance to get it from a store!
