Sneak Peek: MAC Superglass Collection

Edit: I will have photos and swatches of the missing shades after I have a chance to purchase, swatch, photograph, etc. them tomorrow, when they launch in-stores, so I ask you to give me some time, but they will be up as soon as humanly possible, I swear 🙂

Ironically, after writing up my Pret-a-Papier review, some PR samples from MAC arrived, and included were four shades of the upcoming Superglass. I figured I’d give you guys a quick & dirty sneak peek of the shades and swatches, but I’ll do lip swatches tomorrow (hopefully!) along with a review (will be testing it tonight and tomorrow!).

Preliminary thoughts: very thick, quite sticky, doesn’t feel gritty, colors are quite sheer, glitter is large and more like flecks than shimmer.  Full review to come… give me time to test ’em out 🙂

See more photos & swatches!

Oh my gosh! Thanks for the photos! You are seriously the best.

Wow those look seriously glittery. Not sure how I feel because I think Dazzleglasses are certainly enough sparkle for me. I do however love the brush instead of doe foot applicator. Can’t wait to hear what you think of these 🙂

daphne Avatar

Hexagonal tube to go with the hexagonal glitter? Iiiinteresting. These do not appeal to me at all (that glitter is way too huge for me; need to draw a line somewhere) but it’s still really cool to see something new.

RedWeatherTigerD Avatar

Ridiculously pretty! I *love* Sweet Tart. Very curious about taste/smell, though…my Dazzleglass had a wonky smell from Day 1.

Stef Avatar

Christine, do these smell more like dazzleglass or dazzleglass cremes? I can’t wear the cremes, the smell makes me nauseous.

I’m so excited for these, I almost can’t type! Not something I’d wear everyday. But just knowing a few are on my vanity for special nights will make me very happy.

McKenna Avatar

Thats so odd because my Dazzleglass Creme did not smell like Vanilla…it kinda smelled like a crayon…I thought I just got a bad tube or soemthing

Stef Avatar

McKenna – I’m so glad to hear you say that. I thought it was just me! I got rid of all my Cremes because I literally can’t wear them.

Maybe we’re super sniffers…

Jasmine Avatar

WHHHYYY! Ugh! MAC has done it again (breaking my bank) I really need to get some more babysitting jobs. I have a feeling I’m going to want more than one of these…

Kathryn Avatar

I will porbably buy one of these just because I love MAC glosses but the huge glitter particles scare me, perhaps they look better on.

Miles Avatar

False. When would it not be appropriate to wear? It’s so sheer, you could layer it over a nude-brown lipstick like Hug Me or Velvet Teddy to brighten it up and make it more spring/summer. It would be a valuable addition to anyone’s collection, even if you don’t use it very often, but you want some versatile sparkle in your life.

Wilcoa Avatar

Wow big sparkles! I was really looking forward to these, but with the large sparkles/flecks I’m going to pass. Bad memories of a Dior gloss I bought with sparkles in it, that adhered to my lips even after the gloss was gone. Just some sparkles sitting on the lips, not so pretty. Pass! (Thanks for the preview though, now I can save for some To The Beach 🙂 )

cmferret Avatar

yeah i know what u are saying. i luv the lipjellies that came out with the the cream blush collection this pas year but the area surrounding my lips when it wears off has a gross looking glitter leftover . it looks like im frothing at the mouth , and then it gets in my lipcreases on the side.
im still going to check these out in store though, thanx for the sneak peak christine.

elena Avatar

Thats weird because that is exactly why I asked Christine if these were gritty. I bought a Dior lipgloss and it has chunky glitter and when it fades the glitter would be everywhere! I hated it lol.

ilona Avatar

yuck… chunks of glitter and sticky? i feel like these will be more of a headache than something enjoyable. at least i can skip them and save my money for to the beach!

DevilishDoll Avatar

Well I can gladly skip Pret A Papier, but these are a whole other story. I’m totally in love! So far, Sweet Tart is my favorite. I might end up getting all of them besides Tunnel of Love, which sucks cause I really like that name.

Julia Avatar

They remind me of Nfu Oh nail polishes with those flakes… don’t really like it in a lip product honestly.

Also– to me the tubes look like fakes found on Ebay

Christy Avatar

I got Sugar Overload a few days ago. So pretty over anything! It’s not an everyday lip gloss, but when you need that extra bling, it looks fab 🙂 I didn’t find it too sticky and it didn’t feel gritty.

Tally7 Avatar

Hmm, the chunkiness is turning me off. Although, with Tunnel of Love, it is already such a unique color, that the chunky bits look like a fashion/rebelious statement there. So maybe that one.

Sylvia Avatar

Ooh I *love* the packaging but I thought the Dazzleglass Cremes had more than enough glitter, so it looks like I am gonna pass on these!

Jessica Allison Avatar

I’m so over lipgloss with sparkles in it, so this seems like a step in the opposite direction from my tastes. Fortunately, none of the shades are tempting me too much either, so the finish won’t bother me much!

Diana Avatar

Eek! I really don’t like the “chunks” of glitter. They are not subtle at all. I think unless I decide to go into porn or dance on a pole, I’m going to skip these. 🙂

Kathy Avatar

I’m on the fence about these right now. I think I’ll have to see how they look in person before I decide to buy.

Once in a while, I LOVE sparkly lip products. This might be a little too much for me, though.

Carrie Avatar

Love the applicator, love the new shape of the tube and I’m intrigued by the glitter. I love Dazzleglasses, so I’m sure I’ll end up getting at least one of these. Sweet Tart looks pretty. Sugar Overload looks too much like Sugarrimmed to me.

shuz4ever Avatar

Hmmm these seem very dorothy-esque slippers in a tube! Will need to swatch them and cross ref u’r lip swatches before i make up my mind. They all do look very pretty in the tube.

margot Avatar

Sticky ? Ugh ….
But I do like the look of the pink one .. so I’ll wait to see the lip swatches and then decide from there 🙂
You know, you really are my savior Christine ! Where I come from, we have several MAC stores, but now that I am in College (and I live on campus), the closest MAC is two hours away !! So I have to buy everything online, but seeing your swatches and reading your reviews reassure me about not buying stuff I won’t like 🙂

Sun Shine Avatar

Thank you Christine! I wonder if anyone knows whether the large glitter particles will digest/dissolve while lips are licked and some gloss is swallowed, or whether those glitters could get stuck inside before even getting to tummy? Are they made of aluminum foil as usual? Sorry for such an unpleasant question. I’ve read the only company that ever made the safest paper-based glitters was Tony & Tina but they went out of business a long time ago.

t_zwiggy Avatar

Huge chunks of glitter! 😮 Very pretty, but not something I would want on my lips. Might get a couple of them anyway, I mean.. it’s mac l/g after all. I’m sure they’ll look really pretty in my drawer lol.

Kelly Avatar

I think these look fun! A bit too fun for everyday, more like for once in a while going out use. I really don’t like sticky glosses at all. Lipglasses are like glue to me, but these look so different that I just might have to have one to put over lipsticks. Thank you for the sneak peak!

Cara Avatar

All except tunnel of love look nice. I’m not a fan of glitter and sticky lip gloss but I think these would look nice for a night out in the club.

Annie Avatar

Normally I’m not really drawn to glitter/shimmer etc. as much as cream/matte/satin kind of products – but these look pretty awesome! Just not digging the stickyness factor – ugh!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that the colours will actually come in the hexagon shaped containers – I dig!

Angela Avatar

I wouldn’t normally go for colours like it, but I can’t help but be into Tunnel of Love. Maybe blended with another light gloss to tone down the stickiness, and with a lighter lipstick or something. I’m actually liking the sparkle, it would be great for a night out.

allison Avatar

Is Disco Blend anything like Mizz Dynamite? I have that one so I think I can safely pass on this collection.

Nothing is really catching my attention except for the purple color that is shown on the page that has all of the new ones that are coming out.

It looks like too much glitter for me…thick and sticky…not an interesting combo for me. Sorry….

Shana Avatar

DO you post all swatches for the newest Mac collections?? I love these superglasses by the way, I love lipgloss with chunks of glitter, they look more glittery than the dazzleglasses!!

Ingrid Avatar

These look awfulllllllll. Looks unpigmented like dazzleglasses, which I hate. And the glitters look MASSIVEEEEEEEEE. I’m definitely gonna pass. My wallet will be grateful. Gotta save up for the Beach collection!

Jeff Avatar

The store I go to got their stock in last week and I got to play with all 9 colours the other day. All 9 are really nice and are sheer, the glitter is chunky but looks great on. I didn’t find it that sticky, a little more sticky then dazzleglass but not as sticky as Lipglass.

Rafaela Avatar

I just received my order from Macys and I got Cherry Electric, Totally Bang and Fab Frenzy. These are way more pigmented than the others. I didnt find them sticky at all but they feel a bit gritty. Anyways I love them. I might return Fab Frenzy because it is a bit too dark for me.
