A lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of M∙A∙C Lipglass. Soft, comfortable, non-sticky. Applies with a doe-foot applicator. Use as a top layer to its namesake Lipstick or on its own.
This review is for the 3 new Cremesheen Lipglasses colors that come with MAC’s upcoming Daphne Guinness Collection. The colors are as follows:
- Japanese Spring: Pale mid-tone pink
- Narcissus: Mid-tone eggplant
- Borealis: Pale gray pink with iridescent pearl
Richly Revered is also part of this collection, but is not a new color.
These glosses come in standard MAC packaging. The tubes are made of plastic and can easily be taken on-the-go. The glosses have doe-foot applicators.
The formula for these glosses is great because they aren’t tacky and apply smoothly. The pigmentation isn’t strong, but they’re not intended to be, so expect to get a much softer version of the color you see in the tube. Even though the color is sheer, the pigmentation leaves an even finish.
Borealis is definitely the stand-out among the 3 colors. It looks like a blue-tinted grey in the tube, but goes on pretty much clear with light pink shimmers.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
The small doe-foot and formulation make application easy. The light pigmentation also makes precise application unnecessary.
These are the same size (2.7 g) and price ($18.50) as other Cremesheen glosses. Other MAC glosses, though, contain not only more product but also cost less. For example, MAC Tinted Lipglass glosses contain 4.8 g of product and only cost $14.50 each.
