MAC Too Fabulous: Cremesheen Glass Reviews, Photos, Swatches, Lip Swatches

Cremesheen Glass is a creamy, milkier kind of gloss that’s creamy without being overly thick. Cremesheen glass is vanilla-scented and a non-sticky gloss that tends to be sheerer when applied to lips. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few more pigmented shades included in the launch (and now added to the permanent range, from what I have been told), like Double Dare. These are packaged in the lengthened tube like Dazzleglass, and they don’t contain nearly as much product as traditional lipglass and lustreglass do (0.08 oz. vs. 0.17 oz.) and are $4 more.

Update: Loud & Lovely review, photos, swatches, and so forth now included! πŸ™‚ 3/4/10

My favorites are Double Dare and Richer, Lusher! What are yours?

Cremesheen Glass ($18.00)

  • Partial to Pink is a yellow-pink with subtle gold shimmer. On my lips, it looks like a milky baby pink with decent coverage but still a bit sheer. This is a repromoted shade.
  • Double Dare is a slightly toned-down creamy red with no real shimmer. Once applied, it looks like an almost coral-red with a very glossy finish. Kind of makes me think “juicy.”
  • Just Superb is a neutral pink that might lean just a smidgen blue-pink, but it’s fairly neutral. It looks a lot like Partial to Pink, but more muted, on my lips.
  • Richer, Lusher is a creamy, peach coral. Despite looking so rich when swatched on skin, once on my lips, it gives them a very light, pinky-peach look, but definitely nothing like the tube!
  • Fashion Scoop is a sheer, shimmered icy blue-pink. When I applied this to my lips, it gave me a paler, milkier pink lip with noticeable shimmer (this is one of the more shimmery shades of Cremesheen Glass). This is a repromoted shade.
  • Over Indulgence is a creamy, kind of milky, slightly warmed-up brown. Though it looks rather brown in the swatch, on my lips it’s surprisingly wearable–it’s like a muted peachy-brown on my lips.
  • Boy Bait is a creamy peachy nude. I know this is a favorite amongst fans of Cremesheen Glass, but it doesn’t do much on my lips — kind of a creamy look, but seems to emphasize my lip lines. This is a repromote.
  • Deelight is a milky, muted plum. This looks very natural on my lips, because my lips are naturally a pinked plum with a little bit of corpse thrown in.
  • Loud & Lovely is a brightened medium-deep pink that goes on semi-sheer–it’s not an opaque gloss (I was kind of anticipating coverage like Double Dare), but it does give more color than the average Cremesheen Glass.

i have richer lusher! my local mac ACCIDENTLY put these out for sale a week early. so i went in on the one day they were selling. the next day they took it all off the counters haha. luckily i got;
Richer lushes LG
Two Virtues Blush
Rhapsody in two Blush
the pale pink & nude lipliners.

overall i think the pale pink lipliner stands out best to me.

i think ill NEED over indulgence LG though, and even partial to pink.

I’ve been looking for a substitute for my HG nude lipgloss, Poetic License from the holiday collection, and it looks like Richer, Lusher might work. I’m not sure if it would have the right opacity on me though, which is my favorite thing about Poetic License to begin with. I guess I’ll just have to check them out for myself to find out XD

Yeah, I think the coverage on these can vary from person to person – because a lot of these barely show up on me and a lot of the pinky shades tend to look very similar on me (to the point where I have to make sure I photograph the labels so I don’t get confused later on!).

Poetic license looks a lot like 2N that came out with Warm & Cozy collection. I believe it is still available on Mac site.

I had the same problem – poetic license is my absolute favourite and i was looking for something similar. And I actually found something – “Florabundance”, from the permanent mac collection! have you tried that? it’s slightly more pink, but still, almost a dupe, opacity the same.

double dare and over indulgance are the only ones worth the money for me!!! love your swatches…thanks! i especially love that we have the same coloring so you have NEVER steared me wrong!!!! i usually just get whatever is on your must haves list and have yet to be disappointed. Thanks for all your hard work!

I am going to get richer, lusher it looks more coral on your hand and more nude/pink on your lips for some reason, I’m still looking forward to it

TOO SHEER…DOUBLE DARE..MIGHT BE WORTH IT…STILL DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY…TAKE A LIPSTICK…AND PUT CLEAR GLOSS OVER IT…AND THEIR U GO….YOU GET THE SAME TYPE OF TEXTURED LOOK!

These are just blah to me. However, I have just bought 3 longwear lipcolours (Lishious, Jazzy Razz and Durashell). They were completely sold out of Night Rose though. πŸ™ It’s not even on the website.

Double Dare from the swatch looks like Benefit Silky Lipstick in Rocket Pop but then Benefit l/t lasts like 5 minutes for me and I have not tried Double Dare yet.

Thanks always for the great swatches!

I agree with you. I would be NC44/45 but it doesn’t match up perfectly so I use Bobbi Brown. I put on Boy Bait, it’s a nice color but it doesn’t last long. It’s just ok for me.

I like to wear boybait with a brown lip liner. It is great nude look. I will most likely get double dare. The color is so pretty.

Something doesn’t amek sense with your labels of the products. It seems like in all three of the pictures you have one more lipglass then you do labels.

Am I reading it wrong?

Trina

These are perfect for me. I am very pale, so I’ve always had trouble finding lip glosses that are sheer and pale enough. A lot of shades that look pale and nude on most other people look dark on me. Getting the lightest ones for sure!

They have the same non-sticky-ness as Lipgelees, but they’re way thinner, not so “gel-y”, haha.

Sheerness is on par with most of the lipgelees (the ones from Lillyland being odd men out).

Double Dare looks the best on you Christine!
This would be a nice running out the door gloss…hehe.
I may pass on these but if I change my mind it’ll be Double Dare.

i will have to get fashion scoop, i love colors like that. but im in no rush considering they are now perm.

dont you wish they brought back the dazzleglass cremes?
that would be nice.

I’m glad I bought Boy Bait right before they discont’d it for a repromote (just weeks ago!). That is ridiculous marketing. I’m [almost] so over MAC and their marketing, and I only discovered them 6 months ago.

BTW, the Boy Bait I purchased [in late January] smells like vanilla. I have a hard time believing it’s been reformulated. I’ll bet if I purchased a Boy Bait in the new packaging, the consistency/smell would be the same.

I love the Cremesheen Glass formula but the shades this time are not appealing to me. I wish there was a more saturated pink like Double Dare in this lineup. Nice to see Boy Bait back but I wanted to see Petite Indulgence again. Richer Lusher I was hoping for it to be more coral/peach in pigmentation πŸ™

I’m getting fashion scoop its my everyday gloss over top of ysl # 7 lingerie pink or my lady gaga.. I really do hope these are permanent. I’m also planing to get boy bait & I might posably get a few more, I just have to see them in person.

Wow thanks! I was wondering which one to buy. I live in France so I have time to choose (we currently have all ages, … in store right now. Tuesday will be color forecast and the 2 new viva glam lipsticks only on 04/01! O_O Can’t wait. But thanks to you I now know that I’ll get double dare (was thinking richer lusher at first but hell no double dare it’ll be haha)

I own one Cremesheen Glass in Petit Indulgence and I absolutely love it. I’d love to get more, but it feels like too much of a rip off to me for the amount of product you get. Blah.

Pre-ordered Richer and Lusher – now I’m re-thinking the other one I ordered, Partial to Pink. Would you say it’s similiar to Ample Pink (plushglass)? I’m in a milky pink phase but I don’t need another one! And i do love the texture of these? Double Dare is very pretty too – hmmm…got some thinking to do!

Ample Pink may be a little cooler? Maybe. They’re similar, but I’m not sure how Ample Pink looks worn on lips (I don’t own it, and it’s been so long since I’ve tried it on!).

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering about these new Chremesheens. I really like Boy Bait and I was interested in Richer, Lusher. Now I definitely want to get it. πŸ™‚

Christine do you happen to know what lip products were worn on the Mac promo image for this collection, of the 2 women? I read somewhere that it was Angel and a cremesheen..

It looks like the models are wearing the “Fashion Scoop” Gloss from this collection as well as the “Two Virtues” Blush. I’m not sure what they’re wearing under the gloss…hmmm. Any ideas?

I asked them and they said that they applied fashion scoop creamsheen over the lightest lipliner color in the too fabulous collection (I can’t remember the name of it). They said they just colored the whole lip with the pencil, and went over it with the gloss.

I got the same level of color and lightness with Naked pencil (that’s the lightest one) with Richer, Lusher over it, but coral instead of pink.

It looked fabulous with Sun and Moon blush/ Rhapsody in Two highlighter.

Photos don’t do this sparkly cheek, milky lip combo justice.

Oh my poor wallet! I just bought all these colors and 3 of the lip liners! The lip liner that is nude can be applied almost like the lip erase to wash out your lip color! I’m in love with the lip liners!

I love Cremesheens, I will be buying ALL of these! I have fairly small and thin lips that I don’t usually like to draw attention to, so light and sheer colors work well for me πŸ™‚ I love Cremesheens specifically because they are sheer and non-sticky. And even though there is less product in the tubes, they still last a long time for me. These along with the cream-formula Lipglasses are my HGs!

is it just me or does the loud & lovely look almost identical to the petite indulgence from the cream team collection from last year that came out with lickable and lavender whip??

I am undecided on if i want richer lusher of if i should skip…i was hoping it would come out brighter than what is shown…christine do you think this is a must have?? Also, these are all permanent now right? So even if i want it, i wont really need to run out and get them?

I’d say it’s a little deeper and more pigmented (at least on my lips), but they are similar! πŸ™‚

I personally don’t think these are amazinggg awesomeness worth $18 unless you really LOVE the formula. As far as I know, all the Cremesheen Glasses are supposed to be permanent (the blushes and all but Chestnut lip pencils are LE!).

Thanks for the information Christine! I will save my money for Liberty of London next week then!! I am in love with Ever Hip lipstick and will probably buy 3 of them…lol

Also, with comparing loud & lovely to the recent true babe lipglass from Riveting collection, which one would you recommend as being a better buy? I decided that I will get either one or the other since they are both blue pinks.

I read on another forum that Double Dare looked a lot like VG Cyndi. I looked at them together in the store today and they are very similar in color. To tell the truth I like Double Dare better.

deelight reminds me of ample pink plush glass, plus there’s plumper in plushglass … plus it’s got more product(over double)than cremesheen glasses… which are about as sticky as plushglass in MY opinion :P!!! yay

Christine, Do you have any product recommendations on how to get similar lips to those in the picture MAC has on their website (of the two girls for “too fabulous”)?. I just love light lips!

Double Dare I kind of like but overall I’ll pass on them as I prefer a lipstick with a “gloss” over it and have a ton already.

I just bought 2 fashion scoops.. because that is my holy grail lipgloss.. but the MA said that fashion scoop wasent going to be permanent… I hope she was not right lol

I was pretty meh about these, but I went into the main MAC store in L.A. today to take a look, and lemme tell you, they make a gorgeous fresh look combined with the sparkly mineralized blushes.

I tried out Richer Lusher over the nude lip pencil with Sun & Moon blush/Rhapsody in Two used as highligher and it really looked excellent on my pale cool skin/ dark hair/ green eyes. I wound up buying the blush and a few lip pencils, but held off on the lip gloss. I think I’ll wind up getting Richer, Lusher and Fashion Scoop when I go back next week for Liberty of London, if the LoL lipsticks don’t quite do it (or maybe even if they do!)

ONE THING – they told me the Cremesheens are also LE, rather than permanent, as I assumed. I’m not sure what is up, but it’d be a shame if they were LE.

Christine, I’m so confused! Are these permanent now or not? I have been so excited for these, because I thought I could quit stocking up on them! Please tell me they are here to stay…

Loud & Lovely and Double Dare are the only ones that actually show up well on your lips. The others are visible, yes, but they all look quite the same?
Anyway, I don’t like Cremesheen Glasses, to expensive and it’s not such a great product. πŸ™‚

I have the partial to pink, richer lusher, and loud and lovely, and by far the loud and lovely is my favorite although the richer lusher is pretty too it almost looks like that gloss on the Tarina Tarantino editorial on me but slightly on the yellow side instead of red side anyway I love them all its hard to pick.

Thank you for a great review. I have the two from the Holiday launch and was able to trim my list down by your swatches as usual. All of your hard work and time really means something to us, thanks again. I have been able to save time and money, myself, in product and less time wasted at the counter by your reviews and swatches alone! I mentioned your blog to the counter manager and she reads it as well which helps us find a starting point for my appointments.

hey christine…i see you got a hold of loud & lovely…yay… so what is the dif between it and petite indulgence? and thanx for the swatches!! it helps so much!!

Just bought Loud and Lovely at MA. It feels like butter on my lips and I like that the colour can be distinct and can be darker if you layer it on. I think I might put this over my Viva Glam Gaga lipstick…

i love this formula..i have finished two partial to pink and i am absolutely crazy over it!!!i have gazillions of lip glosses but these stole my heart and im ecstatic that they will be permanent!!YAY

Geez, look at all the neutral pinks. Way too similar to have together in one collection. WTF are they thinking? I have Boy Bait and Ever Rich Cremesheen Glasses and they are not pigmented enough for the price. I agree with previous comments. Just put clear gloss over a lipstick and don’t waste your money on these.

christine, how did you get double dare to look so sheer and juicy?
i bought double dare and its literally like a liquid lipstick on me!

Hi, does anyone know a good dupe by MAC for Fashion Scoop? I LOVE it and am almost out but apparently it’s not going to be perm where I am πŸ™

what would you guys say is the best lipglass cremesheen, or any other lipglass, to pair on top of most lipsticks?
something universal and versatile to put on top of other mac lipsticks. Mostly nude ones.

“richer,lusher” was the color the chat line from mac told me was a good substitute for the superglass “gift wrap” color. I explained I wanted a similar color sans glitter.

When I browse the MAC website, I always pull up your site to look at swatches and I saw your description for Deelight, it was funny…your lips aren’t corpse-y at all!. πŸ™‚
