MAC Cremeteam

I’ve been so focused on MAC’s upcoming Hello Kitty collection that I almost missed Cremeteam, a collection of lip products — lipstick, gloss, and liner — based on MAC’s Cremesheen lipsticks (a new and permanent formula, launched September of 2008. Click here for the original swatches). Cremeteam goes on sale February 5, 2009.

There are 8 Cremesheen lipsticks (of which two — Hang-Up and Crosswires — are repromotes of permanent colors). Lavender Whip is limited edition; the other shades will join the Cremesheen permanent line.
Cremesheens are moisturizing and full-coverage — I did “single swipe” swatches alongside heavier ones to demonstrate the coverage. The lipsticks are $14 each.
This collection also includes 8 limited edition shades of Cremesheen Glass, MAC’s Dazzleglass-minus-the-dazzle. Which is funny, because YSL just released Gloss Pur, which is Golden Gloss without the golden. Cremesheen Glass glosses have a doe’s foot applicator and are $18 each.

I think Petite Indulgence is the most pigmented of the group; the others are semi-sheer. I tried on Ever So Rich and it did mute the color of my lips, but it didn’t totally erase them. Fashion Scoop is warmer than Ever So Rich — Fashion Scoop also contains tiiiiiny sparkles, but they’re so small and subtle, I don’t think you’ll notice them.

  • The Mighty J says:

    >Hmm liking those Dazzleglasses – got my eye on Crème Anglaise & Looks Like Sin. Since I am waiting on the HK lippies I will wait to check the Cremesheen lipsticks but I am liking Cream in your Coffee & Lavender Whip. Thanks for the swatches – I find it always helps me narrow down what I want to try when I go instore!

  • birkinbagbeauty says:

    >I want Creme Cup lipstick and the Partial to Pink lipgloss…

    I actually really like Mac lipstick…it must be the vanilla scent.

  • GlossMenagerieDotCom says:

    >I’m so excited for lavender whip lipstick it’s kinda sad! I also like the looks of creme cup. I predict that one will sell out fast. Hang Up is pretty but since it’s not LE I’m not as motivated…

  • Kristina says:

    >Ooh – Hang Up looks gorgeous! Do you know/remember how much it looks like Quick Tease lipglass IRL? In the pics, it looks similar… I’ve been looking for a lipstick version of that gloss, too :) thanks love!

  • Valerie says:

    >Thank you! I was thinking Creme in Your Coffee might be mine, but now I’m leaning towards Spice is Nice… *waits for Thursday*

  • Cat says:

    >Ahhhhh… Shy Girl looks exactly like I wanted it to be! I’m also interested in Creme Cup and Partial to Pink gloss… Can’t wait ’till it comes out this Friday!

  • Valerie says:

    >I forgot to ask about smell! Do we know if the cremesheen glosses have the same smell as Lipglass or different?

  • Sara says:

    >I want to know how lavender whip compares to the lavender hello kitty lipstick (there is one, right?) before I buy either. Sadly I live no where near a counter so I have to base this on swatches :(

  • Roxy says:

    >Ohh no you didn’t! Man, I can’t keep up with all my lemmings and most come from viewing my lil’ KarlaSugar’s site! You’re so bad for the wallet! : )

  • myystiqueen says:

  • Elle Y. says:

    >Amazing!!! My recent purchases are bascially a reflection of reading Karla’s blog as well. I love the creme cup and crosswires. Question: which one is a better choice for an interview (for a entry-level researcher position)??

  • KarlaSugar says:

    >Haha, I would think you couldn’t go wrong with either, Elle. :)

  • Alyssa says:

    >I have Boy Bait, and i’s a perfect nude – so great!

    I love the taste – I can’t stand the taste of Clinique Gloss sticks
