MAC Love Child Lipglass

Love Child

MAC Love Child Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and copper shimmer. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lip lines at all. The texture felt smooth, light-to-medium in weight, and had noticeable tackiness that never felt goopy. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

MAC Rebel Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a rich, plum-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips with very little settling. The texture was smooth, almost gel-like but was still somewhat tacky. It lasted for six hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

MAC Lipglass Rebel

MAC Purple Mocha Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a blackened plum with a hint of purple paired with fine, multi-colored pearl. For as dark as the shade was, it applied more evenly than I anticipated, but it did pull substantially into my lip lines. The shimmer helped distract from that a bit but not entirely. The gloss was lightly hydrating, moderately tacky, and comfortable for the five hours it wore well for.

MAC Lipglass Purple Mocha

MAC Desire Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a rich burgundy red with subtle, warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. The consistency felt very smooth, almost gel-like but still moderately tacky like your typical Lipglass. It applied evenly without streaking, which was impressive given it was only semi-opaque in coverage. The issue I had with this shade was that there was noticeable color in my lip lines after application. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing.
