I have an old post on this, but that only features the Lipglass, Lustreglass and the Dazzleglass, so this will rectify that now! lol! This post is not complete though - I'm missing the Dare to Wear, Plushglass and Lipgelee lipglosses!
Ok, lets start with the Lipglass! :)
With the Lipglass, it's really a huge box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get. The pigmentation ranges from sheer, almost clear gloss-sy, to full on color. It comes in different finishes too - from creamy opaque, to just the right amount of shine and shimmer, to full on frosty! I really recommend checking these out in the store for yourself, or at least check out swatches online prior to purchasing to see if its for you! :)
These are moderately sticky - I'm ok with some stickiness because methinks that it helps the gloss to last longer! :)
At US$14.50 / RM63 for 4.8g / 0.17 US Oz, its the best buy of the lot! Plus there're tons of shades to choose from! :)
The Lustreglass is often overlooked - because its similar to the Lipglass in appearance and it doesn't have as many shades as the Lipglass to choose from! However, I kinda like them because they give a lovely sheen and it has a brush applicator, which I prefer! :D
Though this is advertised as "high shine", i personally find that these will give low to medium shine to your lips, depending on shade. I don't have any swatch pics for this though... its been awfully long since MAC released a collection featuring the lustreglasses!! :(
The other thing I like most besides the brush applicator, is that this isn't too sticky!! :D
This is also priced at US$14.50 / RM63 for 4.8g / 0.17 US Oz, so do check this one out if you want the most bang for your buck, and prefer brush applicators! lol!! :D
Ahhhh, these are my favourite - though they're definitely not office safe if you work in a conservative environment! :D
Swatches (these are probably among the most pigmented of all the dazzleglassses):
Most (in fact, all) shades are sheer - these are meant to be layered over lipsticks for the most amazing shine and shimmer! :D
The downside to these though, is that they're probably the stickiest MAC glosses ever (bar the Superglass)! The biggest boo boo though, is its price - at US$18 / RM80 for a measly 1.92 g / 0.06 US oz, its an outright rip off! But ah well, MAC sure knows how to do us in - suckers like mua will still buy because they're just too darned gorgeous!! :D
These are just soo comfortable to wear! Non-sticky and lightly pigmented, these are great for those who love natural looks! :)
The first 3 colors are Cremesheen Glasses, and the last 3, Dazzleglasses.
As you can see, these are essentially creamy colors. They do settle into the lines of your lips though, but this can be solved by using a lip primer beforehand.
Like I mentioned earlier, this lipgloss is not sticky at all, but that also means that it disappears quickly so you'll need to reapply more often.
These go for US$18 / RM80 for 2.7 g / 0.09 US oz each.
Many people were irked by the lack of pigmentation of the Dazzleglass, so MAC came up with this (which makes me think that MAC actually do
As you can see, these are significantly more pigmented than the Dazzleglasses! Certain shades however, have rather large glitter particles in them (particularly the lighter shades).
At US$18 / RM80 for 2.7 g / 0.09 US oz, these lipglosses would make a better buy than the Dazzleglass for those who prefer their lipglosses a bit more pigmented! :)
This are essentially Dazzleglasses with larger glitters, so they're not very pigmented! I guess these are best reserved for special occasions at night! lol! :D
These are quite sticky and gritty, making them the most uncomfortable MAC glosses to wear! On the bright side, you're getting more than double the amount the Dazzleglasses get at US$18 / RM80 for 4.5 g / 0.15 US oz, so those who love your bling, you can consider purchasing this one! :D
So to sum it up, here's an spreadsheet on the blabla I've talked about, just because I'm a geek like that! :D
Hope that helps!! :D Thats all for now!! Do let me know which MAC lipgloss is your favourite!! :D :D
