MAC x The Simpsions Lipglasses

There are four new, limited edition shades of MAC Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) featured in the upcoming collaboration with The Simpsons, which releases online on August 28th and in-stores on September 4th. Β I think seeing these made me long for lipsticks, too, as MAC often does lipgloss and lipstick pairing. Β Over the years, it’s often their limited edition lipstick shades that sell out the quickest, and I kept thinking, “What would they have created to pair with yellow lipgloss?”

MAC Grand Pumpkin Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright creamy orange.” It’s a slightly muted, medium orange with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that just slightly settled into lip lines (but it wasn’t too noticeable). It lasted for four hours on me when I tested it. NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is slightly brighter. NARS Wonder (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Live It Up (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Cheerful (P, $22.00) is redder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as an “electric blue violet.” It’s a brightened, fuchsia magenta with cool, blue undertones and violet shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it applied evenly and smoothly. The color wore well for five hours. MAC Unlimited Style (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Pink Poodle (By Request) (LE, $15.00) is brighter. Urban Decay Crush (P, $19.00) is purpler. MAC Style Packed (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. MAC Heroine (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. MAC Embrace Me (LE, $15.00) is pinker. MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, purpler. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Nacho Cheese Explosion Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright neon lime yellow.” It’s a bright, green-tinged yellow–like highlighter yellow–with faint yellow pearl. Applied, it turns my lips more of a yellow-orange kind of color, as it had semi-sheer color coverage. This applied horribly; it settled into lip lines, was impossible to even out, and in general, a very fussy lip color. If you apply a very small amount (less than one pull of gloss), you might get semi-decent evenness in the application. On me, it wore for three hours. I could only think of one other yellow gloss: MAC Bright Side (LE, $15.00), which is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Red Blazer Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright fuchsia.” It’s a bright, fuchsia-red with pink pearl and subtle, cool undertones. It had fairly opaque pigmentation, and it applied evenly and smoothly. It lasted for five hours on me. MAC Glam (LE, $15.00) is redder. Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is more opaque. Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is redder. Milani Flashy (DC, $6.49) is cooler-toned, more shimmery. MAC Embrace Me (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani #505 (P, $29.00) is redder. Burberry Pink Sweet Pea (LE, $27.00) is slightly cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I really love Grand Pumpkin, Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy and Red Blazer, but I don’t use lipglasses often enough to justify buying them. I’ll probably get Red Blazer alone.

I wanted to see if Itchy and Scratchy was a dupe for my Mac Wonder Woman Athena’s Kiss lipgloss but it didn’t have a comparison swatch picture. Would you call these two dupes? Thanks!

Christine Avatar

Hi Jaclyn!

They are very similar! I think Athena’s Kiss is a little darker with larger silver shimmer. The swatches are really old, so they weren’t added to the updated Swatch Gallery (I had to do a cut off for quality purposes) – http://www.temptalia.com/mac-wonder-woman-lipglasses-review-photos-swatches

What the heck kind of name is Itchy and Scratchy and Sexy?? Like, they just had to throw in that last adjective to, I don’t know, assure women they’d look hot in it? It’s a pretty color, but I’m not sure I want wear something that sounds like it warrants a trip to the VD clinic. (God help you if you own Guerlains Browny Clap, too!)

Nacho Cheese was an expected miss (go big or go home, MAC), and I really like Red Blazer.
Not extensively fond of the packaging but glad to see some decent glosses from them.

Veronica Avatar

I could see it working as a mixer to warm up corals and pinks but not on it’s own. And at that price, you may as well she’ll out the extra for OOC Lip Tars, which are formulated to mix, y’know?

anne Avatar

Oh wow i really like grand pumpkin!! that’s the one that i didn’t think i would like, aside from the yellow lol. but i think it would make a nice nude lipstick topper.

I planned on skipping this collection but I do like the way Grand Pumpkin and Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy looks. I wanted to like Nacho Cheese Explosion but after Playland and Brightside I knew it wouldn’t turn out too great. It’s too bad because it’s a really unique and pretty color

Lisa Avatar

I really thought I was going to need Red Blazer, but now that I’ve seen it, I’m not blown away. Definitely need Revlon Adorned instead.

I don’t think we are getting the Simpsons Collection and honestly I’m not too sad about it. I was in MAC the other day and was told we will be getting Moody Blooms and A Novel Romance. (we get the collections later than everyone else). Anyway, they didn’t say anything about this collection. Based on what I’ve seen I think Grand Pumpkin was the surprise star of the lip glosses as well. πŸ™‚

I’ve never been a fan of MAC Lipglass (I hate the way they settle in liplines) but I’m shocked to find that I actually really like the way these look, except the yellow, of course. Too bad that yellow was so unimpressive. I would have been all over it if the application had been better. I love lip colors that are different!

Rachel R. Avatar

I like Red Blazer and Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy best. Grand Pumpkin is nice. Nacho Cheese Explosion would have to be worn over a lipstick to work at all.

Kari Avatar

ugh i saw this collection at work and i wasn’t impressed when i looked. i wasn’t planning on buying anything anyways though. but that nacho cheese explosion… when i first saw it, my mind went to “liquid baby diarrhea”. i mean, really? but ISS and red blazer are really gorgeous though.

Janelle Avatar

Christine you look great in everything even that ridiculous Nacho Cheese! I think we are going to have to start dressing you in garbage bags or something, but then you could even pull that off πŸ™‚

Helene Avatar

I hope this collection makes here because I really, really want I&S&S and Red Blazer. Both absoloutely well within my comfort zone. I should really try Grand Pumpkin as it’s so not in my zone, a very nice colour, though.
I actually love MAC lipglasses a lot, I might be very nostalgic, but they feel right to me πŸ™‚
Love how you rock all kinds of lipcolours, even the NCE looke OK on you. I love the name of that one, I must say.

Sylirael Avatar

Not gonna lie, I love the Itchy & Scratchy one, and if it weren’t MAC, I would buy it in a second to add to my stash of purples!

The Nacho Cheese ons is just disappointing. I know it’s a Simpsons collection, but that’s all the more reason to go big or go home on the yellow, right? I think that if they couldn’t formulate an opaque, vinyl yellow (OCC lip tar style), they shoulnd’t have bothered. It would have been so awesome if there had been a bright yellow and a bright blue lipgloss to go with two more ‘wearable’ shades…

I wonder how Nacho Cheese Explosion would look over certain shades of orange lipsticks & glosses. Most orange lippes are too dark for me, so I keep looking for a lighter orange shade of gloss that’s opaque, but can be sheered out. This might be what I need to get the shade of tangerine I’m looking for. What do you think, that maybe this would make a better layering gloss?

Monica Avatar

Grand Pumpkin looks very pretty but I’m not sure how it would show up on my “dark” lips.

I just purchased “itchy and scratchy sexy” and “red blazer”. I hope that I like them. Thank your for the review!

Pamilla Avatar

All of the colors look great on you! I love anything coral or orange, so had to have Grand Pumpkin. I grew up watching The Simpsons and still do lol, so there was no way I could leave without grabbing ISS. Red Blazer is pretty but I have so many colors like it. Thanks for the swatches, I always come here to see the colors first. I have no worries ordering online :).
