Company’s Description

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 two (2) limited-edition Cremesheen Glasses releasing with MAC’s Tropical Taboo Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:

  • Calypso Beat: Pale neutral pink
  • Fever Isle: Bright red coral

Free Gift

These glosses come in standard MAC packaging and have doe-foot applicators. The tubes are made of plastic and can easily be taken on-the-go.

Calypso Beat is a peachy nude with micro-shimmer and a translucent finish. Fever Isle is red-coral with micro-shimmer and a translucent finish.

Cremesheen Glasses are watery in formula, which makes them glide onto the skin effortlessly and without any stickiness. All of them have varying degrees of translucence, so don’t expect to get any opaque finish out of them. The watery formula means these glosses last no more than 1-2 hours before needing re-application.

These are wearable colors, but none of them really stands out to me. MAC has many lip products in these two colors.

The small doe-foot and formulation make application easy. The light pigmentation also makes precise application unnecessary.

Cremesheen Glasses have yet again gone up in price. They are now $20.00 and contain 0.09 fl oz (2.7 ml) of product. Other MAC glosses contain not only much more product but also cost less.
