1 in a Million

MAC 1 in a Million Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and violet sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, but the color settled into my lip lines. The texture was light-medium weight feel with a moderately tacky texture. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. - $190.00 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.

At Your Best You Are

MAC At Your Best You Are Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a jelly-like finish with faint shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer that applied fairly evenly, but it did sink into my lip lines. It had a moderately sticky consistency with a light-medium weight to it. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Brooklyn Born

MAC Brooklyn Born Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a golden beige with warm, yellow undertones and lots of pearl and shimmer. It had medium coverage (mostly from shimmer) that applied evenly and spread easily across my lips (this one was described as sheer, though). The gloss was noticeably tacky and plusher, but it wasn’t heavy. There was slight color that gathered in my lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance between the shimmer and glossy finish. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was moisturizing while worn.

Li Li's Motor City

MAC Li Li’s Motor City Lipglass ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium peachy-coral with warm undertones and barley-there gold pearl. It had good pigmentation that covered my lips evenly but there was slight product that sank into my lip lines within a few minutes. It had a tacky feel–typical of Lipglass–but wasn’t heavy or uncomfortable to wear and spread fairly easily across my lips. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Me too, Rachel! My plan is to use it with Nevermore lip pencil….and I can just hear my long gone Mom yelling: “Nancy Jean T*****! Don’t you dare do that Queen Of The Damned movie makeup after you forbade your daughter doing it when she was 13!” LOL. But that’s not even my inspiration, though!

I’m really trying to stay under $175 with this collection, but I do believe that I would love having and wearing all 4 of these. Especially since my lipstick choices have been narrowed down to 2 favorite shades. The only lipglass I *may* possibly skip is At Your Best You Are, due to some serious redundancy within my stash. Li LI’S Motor City, Brooklyn Born and 1 In A Million are my absolute MUSTS.

I want At Your Best You Are. I love that freaking song and having a gloss named after it would be nice. Brooklyn Born & Li Li’ Motor City would be nice to have as well. I’m super happy these received good reviews because these were the only thing I was interested in.

I’ll probably pick up Li Li’s Motor City. I want something from Aaliyah’s collection and so far this is all that I’m interested in getting.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
