MAC Lipglass

This seemed like the perfect opportunity to catch up on some highly requested permanent collection items — we’ll start this week off with MAC’s permanent lipglosses.

I feel a little less accomplished than I thought I would, swatching the MAC glosses, because so many shades have recently been discontinued. I’ve heard that when MAC makes something permanent, something else has to be discontinued (so the line doesn’t get completely out of control).  With the addition of several new lipgloss formulae — Dazzleglass, Cremesheen Glass — some of the old standbys are falling by the wayside (there are only 3 shades of Lipgelée still for sale. Goodbye, Valentine’s).

MAC’s Lipglass (doe’s foot applicator) is considered their “full-bodied color” formula. All MAC glosses are $14, and you’ll notice there are two Viva Glam shades in the mix (V and VI). As with other Viva Glam products, all $14 — 100% of the purchase price — is donated to AIDS charities. Also, click here to compare Viva Glam VI with the limited edition Viva Glam VI Special Edition.

    Thanks for the swatches Karla! MAC releases so many LE lipglasses, that we sometimes forget about the perm ones I guess. There are some lovely colors in the perm collection that don’t get enough love and attention IMHO.
