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. When MAC first came out with this formulation, I was disappointed because the pigmentation was too sheer. With this collection, the pigmentation is still on the light side, but isn’t so sheer that the finish looks uneven.
Geo Pink and Natural Flare have tiny shimmers in them while the other 3 colors have no shimmer.
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.
