MAC Bright Pink Bouquet Cremesheen Glass

MAC Bright Pink Bouquet Cremesheen Glass ($28.00 for TBA oz.) is described as a “nude coral.” It’s a medium, orange-coral with lighter pink and white pearl. It swatched much brighter than it looked in the tube or applied, but it isn’t a vibrant coral on, which is where it counts. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which made it the most pigmented of the three (the Cremesheen Glass formula is a sheerer range). The color applied easily and was comfortable to wear over the three hours it lasted. Becca Watermelon/Opal (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Good Fairy (LE, $14.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Guerlain Nahema Smack (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

MAC Love of Roses Cremesheen Glass ($28.00 for TBA oz.) is described as a “true red.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and a mostly cream finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which made it look almost like a lip stain with a glossy finish applied. The gloss went on evenly for the most part, but there was a little gloss that you could see that darkened lip lines. The color lasted for two and a half hours on me, while the formula was lightly moisturizing over time. Maybelline Radiant Ruby (530) (P, $8.99) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Viva Glam Rihanna (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Sephora Fuchsia Fiesta (22) (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar).

It lasted for two and a half hours on me, and it was lightly hydrating. Sephora Good Fairy (LE, $14.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

I like the swatch for Pink Bouquet (although I don’t see any pink in it), too bad it isn’t as vibrant on the lips, or I would grab it. After shelling out major bucks for Night Sky, I think I can skip these. But for those that like the colors and packaging, these are a lot more affordable than the shadow quads

I like Bright Pink and Pale Moon. The price isn’t to bad for these considering I have paid over $30 for HE brand glosses. But, considering the grades, I’m not sure they are worth it. Have you tried any of these over the lipsticks Christine? I know some some of Mac’s glosses layer well for me and others seem to kinda break down the lipstick.

Depends on the lipstick, but these are pretty creamy so they can smear the underlying lipstick a bit (depending on how much you apply, though!).

Bright Pink Bouquet looks fabulous! But $28 for a B+ lipgloss takes some mulling over….I do love the packaging, and that is a shade I know I would wear to death, but B+ for $28, I just don’t know….if only it was at all counters, then I could see whether it would translate well on my lips!

Hi Christine,

Do you think the Bright Pink Bouquet shade is similar to Mac Cremesheen Glass in Geo Pink (LE)? That color is my holy grail and I’m down to one more tube (bought around 10 of them when it was launched). It looks similar, I’m hoping this is a strong dupe contender!!

Thanks 🙂
