Note: MAC still has not released 2 of the shades in this collection–Check This Out and Famously Fab. Instead of waiting until the full line is available (and risk this being another Gareth Pugh Metal-X wait), I decided to show you the colors that are currently available. I will update this post with the 2 additional colors once they are available. Since I know it can be frustrating to sit through a whole video and not see the color(s) you want, I will wait to do the video on this collection until I can show you all the colors.
Availability: MAC Stores & Online
Price: $14.50 each
A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Tinted Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It’s pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips. Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application.
This review is for the Lipglasses that come with MAC’s Tour de Fabulous Collection (originally named Glamglass Collection). The colors are as follows:

Lipglasses come in clear plastic tubes and have doe-foot applicators.
These Lipglasses have a medium-thick formula with some tackiness. The colors are right in between being sheer and opaque. You can layer any of the colors to build up the opacity, but you usually can’t get a completely opaque finish.
Casual Air is a “frosted pale pink” with a bounty of pink and silver shimmers.
MAC describes It’s a Wow as a mid-tone blue-pink. The color, like Casual Air, has a ton of tiny silver shimmers.
Rich & Witty is a neutral dirty pink with a hint of beige. It is a great natural color, except for the fact that it, again, has a ton of silver shimmers (which some may not consider natural).
Comfort & Joy is a mauve-toned pink with light pink and silver shimmers.
Tour de Fabulous is a light pinky coral with more finely-milled silver shimmers. The color is a brighter coral in the tube than on the lips.
Knockout is a heavily red-based orange. Though MAC claims this color has pearls in it, mine didn’t seem to have any. This color also showed up more uneven on the skin than the other colors and gave off a sort of watery finish, even after layering.
Style-Packed is a neon blue-based pink with fewer silver shimmers than the other colors.
Rich Bounty is a brown-based red with pearls and had a watery finish like Knockout.
Real Posh is a boysenberry with light purple and silver pearls.
Overall, I think this is a great line of Lipglass colors. Some of the colors show a little unevenness in coverage, but overall, there is a wonderful selection of colors. None of the colors is too light or dark to be wearable.
I get average wear out of Lipglasses–about 2-3 hours if I don’t eat or drink. The color fades before the tacky texture does.
Ease of Use: 9/10
Save for the darker colors, applying these glosses doesn’t require a mirror. They glide on fairly easily, but you do need to get product from the tube several times. On average, I will have to pick up more product from the tube 3-4 times to cover my lips.
For $14.50, you get 0.17 ounces (4.8 grams) of gloss.
