Spark Joy

MAC Spark Joy Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a translucent, nearly clear, base with flecks of silver and white pearl throughout. It had a high-shine, sparkling finish that was luminous and made my lips look plumper as the gloss didn’t emphasize my lip lines or lip texture. The gloss had a smooth, moderately tacky consistency that was plush, thicker than most glosses on the market, but it was comfortable to wear and longer-wearing (five hours). The formula also felt hydrating.

This shade was described as “translucent white with pearl” by the brand–always nice to see some coverage descriptors!–and that was accurate. I wish MAC would be more specific with the full range of Lipglasses available!

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. – $190.00 Per Ounce

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 have found 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.

Break the Ice

MAC Break the Ice Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a translucent, peachy base with flecks of gold, pink, and peach sparkle that seemed to shift slightly. It had more semi-sheer to medium coverage with a subtle, warmer peach tint that came through on my lips when applied. The texture was smooth, light-medium in thickness but not heavy to wear, and fairly tacky (especially compared to most gloss formulas).

The formula really ranges from sheer to opaque, but the brand routinely bills the formula, generally, as pigmented and often doesn’t mitigate that with a specific shade description, unfortunately. Aside from the lack of coverage, it applied evenly, didn’t emphasize my lip lines, and wore for five hours and felt hydrating over time.

Snow in Love

MAC Snow in Love Lipglass ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark coral-red with subtle, warm undertones and a mix of gold and pink pearl/faint sparkle paired with a high-shine, glossy finish. The gloss had a smooth, tackier consistency that was plush and thicker (though I didn’t find it too heavy!) that was comfortable to apply and to wear.

There was a bit of product that settled into my lip lines, though wasn’t enough to be noticeable in person due to the shiny finish. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff, but the brand didn’t specify that, so it did fall short of the pigmentation level claimed. This shade stayed on nicely for five horus and felt moisturizing while worn.
