This gift set was part of the holiday collection but on the off chance that you can still find some lurking on counters (I saw some of the sets at Glasgow Airport a couple of days ago), at CCO’s or that MAC re-promote the shades I thought I would post swatches anyway.
For £25.50 you get 4 lipglass housed in an adorable cardboard box that I will definitely be reusing! The packaging of the tubes themselves feels like a heavier plastic than the Lipglass I have bought in the past from MAC and there is a bow design printed on the front of the tubes. You get 1 in the Dazzleglass formula (Boys Go Crazy 2.6g), 1 Dazzleglass Creme (Demure 1.9g) and 2 Cremesheen (Going Casual and Colour Saturation 1.9g). The Dazzlglass and Dazzleglass Creme formulas come with brush applicators, the Cremesheen glass tubes have doe foot applicators.

All of these lack the tacky texture I’ve experience with or MAC lipgloss formulas which will be a blessing for many! They do have the signature MAC vanilla fragrance but no discernible taste to them. The Cremesheen formulas feel extremely smooth and creamy on the lips. The Dazzleglass formulas do have a slight gritty feel to them when you rub your lips together but this is to be expected given the amount of sparkle they contain. The wear is pretty standard, 1-2 hours on me and I’m a perennial tea drinker. I don’t find them drying but they aren’t particularly moisturising either.
Demure is a gorgeous slightly yellow tones pale pink with stunning blue shimmer running through it. It is so unusual! On the lips the shimmer isn’t too in your face but it is noticeable and turns what could be a very boring neutral shade into something completely different. Going Casual is a soft, creamy rose shade. This definitely falls into the work appropriate category. It’s very pretty and subdued. Boys Go Crazy is absolutely gorgeous! It’s a deep purple wine shade with blue and pink sparkle. The colour itself is quite sheer so it is much more wearable than it appears in the tube. I’ve been loving wearing this shade over the Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Crush for a vampy berry lip and have received a fair few compliments on the combination! Finally Colour Saturation is a creamy red/ purple which goes on the lips slightly brighter than it appears in the tube.

FYI for anyone who lives in the UK this link takes to a list where you can find your nearest CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet) done by Charlotte at Lipglossiping. The post is a couple of years old now so check the shop is still there before travelling!!
