MAC x Pedro Lourenço Lipglasses

The MAC x Pedro Lourenço collection has two new, limited edition shades of Lipglass. It is specially packaged with a rubberized, soft black cap. Both shades were semi-opaque, and they had a high-shimmer finish that looked almost metallic in person.

MAC Gold Mirror Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral gold.” It’s a medium, brown-ish gold with multi-colored shimmer, though it is dominated by peachy-gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. It is totally loaded with shimmer, though, and that’s really why it is more distinct compared to other gold-shimmered glosses, including the recently released MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00), which is a lot less packed with shimmer. MAC Water Deities (LE, $15.00) is less gold. MAC Pure Sophistication (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Mirror Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral silver.” It’s a subtly warm-toned, pewter gold with silver and gold shimmer that dominates, but it also includes multi-colored shimmer that adds a rainbow-esque glimmer to it. Again, it is totally jam-packed with shimmer, which gives it a near-metallic finish. The overall result was semi-opaque coverage. It wore well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. I couldn’t think of a dupe for this one.

Do you think you need to own both of these? I love the gold, but wondering if I should pick up the silver too, but I would wear them over lipsticks, not alone, so wondering if the gold is enough. Not sure how much color you would get out of the silver worn over lipstick?

Ooh, I really like that Gold Mirror one but I think I’m getting too many similar colors. I just got Water Deities and it looks identical to Social Light on my lips even though they swatch a bit differently. I think this might be a good layering gloss, especially over red for the holidays. Decisions decisions. Does this look the same swatched as the Ruffian Gold lipstick does?

Christina Avatar

Oh, wow! These are pretty! They look kind of neat on their own, but I’ll bet they’ll be even prettier layered, which is what I assume they were meant to be. It’s interesting that the silver one looks almost lavender-ish on your lips.

Mirror is so so so so cool! I’d really love to get it an use it for an ice queen look to holiday parties later in the year!

Gold Mirror is cool, but has a lot of dupes– even in drugstore brands. Besides, I like to go bold with the gold sparkles! Bobbi Brown’s Canary is still my favorite gold glitter lip gloss!

Jules Avatar

Thanks, Christine – I was debating buying Water Deities when I stop by MAC later today, and I also thought Pussywillow looked interesting, but after this review I think I’ll forget both of those and go for this gold one instead!

Veronica Avatar

I think you duplicated Gold mirror’s product image onto Mirror. 🙂

Mirror is lovely! I’ll have to drop by and see if I can grab it next week. Hopefully, it won’t go flying off the shelves like some of the other collections.

Erin Avatar

These look so gorgeous! Can you tell me how Mirror compares to MAC She-Zam Dazzleglass? I’d like to get Mirror, but I have She-Zam. I compared them in your swatch gallery, but She-Zam is old, so your lighting was different back then. Thanks Christine!!

please can more variety? In recent surveys only on the Mac, this brand is not very interesting to me. Want to see more different posts

Christine Avatar

That’s because MAC launched three big collections! 🙂 MAC is very popular with readers, and just like when I cover other brands, it’s about what readers want to see – can’t satisfy everyone all of the time, but there is plenty of variety of brands and products covered on the blog throughout each month!

Have you gotten to review the Frozen Lame’ lipglass? I think it’s lighter in the tube but was wondering about a more in-depth comparison from your perspective when it comes to appearance on the skin.

artemis Avatar

LOL, SPARKLE OVERLOAD! I usually dislike this amount of sparkle and shimmer, but wearing the silver one on its own would be fine, especially with icy blue or silver eyeshadow and cool pink blush(then again, idk if it would suit me, so i don’t even have a drugstore silver lipgloss)

Mindy Avatar

I got both of these in today. They were mislabeled–in the opposite boxes AND had opposite labels. This could be a problem for those only ordering one!

CeeCee Avatar

It seems to be a popular issue. Mine were mislabeled as well but because I ordered both that wasn’t a problem. If someone is buying it from a free standing store though, no one would know unless they opened the box to double check

hanna Avatar

I, too, had that problem. I waited and waited to get Mirror lipglass. It arrived alright, but it was Gold Mirror. On the invoice it said mirror, on the box it said mirror, and on the actual lipglass it said mirror. However, the color was clearly a gold lipglass. It left me really bummed for sure.

Christine, is there anyway you’d be willing to sell your Mirror lipglass??

Same here, Hanna. I am SO. FRIGGIN. MAD!!! I stayed up stalking Bloomingdales until the collection came up, and now I’m stuck with 3 gold mirrors, which i don’t like in the least. I’m calling MAC Corporate tomorrow: 800-387-6707 (choose option 8)
m-f 9am – 4pm ET

Hopefully they will be willing to right this wrong!

Diva Style Avatar

Same thing happened to me! They’re sending me the correct lipglass, and I’ll just end up getting two for one, lol. Works for me! They don’t charge you…b/c after all, it IS their mishap, and they’d lose either way–they’d HAVE to pay for you to ship it back since it is their error…and what are they going to do with a used lipglass if you tested it out without paying attention to the packaging detail? Lol! I’ll take it!

Jennifer Avatar

I ordered Mirror, and it came today…and the box and the label say Mirror…but it doesn’t look like Mirror at all, even accounting for looking different on different monitors. 🙁 When I opened it up I immediately wondered if I got the gold one.

Natalie Avatar

I just got mine today, ordered Gold Mirror, and got Mirror (but labeled as Gold). I’m super bummed about it. I emailed MAC, but they’re sold out on the site. So who knows if there’s even a replacement to send. Sigh.

divinem1 (Melissa) Avatar

I’m going to send MAC a link to all these mislabeled orders. Surely there is a way for them to fix such a HUGE screw up!!

For anyone else who wants to complain:

ugh I was so looking forward to getting the “Mirror” lipglass; instead I received “Gold Mirror” mislabeled as “mirror”… Mac customer service is shipping another one; let’s hope it’s the right product this time around =(

divinem1 (Melissa) Avatar

I ordered 3 of the Mirror lip glasses from Bloomingdales and ALL OF THEM are mislabeled! They’re all GOLD Mirror!

No way to get it worked out since everything sold out so fast. I am SO aggravated!!!

Christina Seefried Avatar

I absolutely wanted the mirror gloss (the silver one) Mac sent me the gold one and said they would exchange for me. Got an email the next day saying silver was out of stock (which I knew already – but I thought since she told me they would send it to me that they must have had a few back ups or something. Meanwhile I had already mailed my gold one back to MAC to be exchanged for the one they no longer have!!! Now I have neither!!’ I really wanted the silver to wear on my wedding day – to the reception later in the night. Thought it would have been so fun!!

Something strange is going on. I bought one of these 2 lipglasses and I was sure it’s Mirror because it’s a silvery shimmer, just like Mirror in your pictures. But on the sticker it says that it’s Gold Mirror. It looks nothing like the picture of Gold Mirror. I should really go back to the store and compare both shades.

As for how to wear shimmery glosses: these work perfectly with matte lipsticks! Right now I’m combining it with Cyber, and the gloss makes it a more wearable shade IMO.

Michal Avatar

The MAC makeup artist who sold it to me must have known about the mislabeling error, because she gave me the right gloss without opening the package.
