Beauty Report: MAC Mineralize Glass Spring 2014 Cosmetic Collection

The new MAC Mineralize Glass Collection featured a new shade of gloss (Mineralize Glass) in twelve shades, plus six new shades of Mineralize Rich Lipstick. All eighteen shades will be joining the permanent line-up. The new gloss is less tacky than traditional Lipgloss, but thinner and stickier than Cremesheen Glass or Lustreglass. The color coverage is a little more than Cremesheen Glass, but the new gloss is semi-sheer in most cases and wears an average of three hours a pop. They’re lightly hydrating, smell of vanilla, and contain more product than most of MAC’s lipglosses. Some shades settled into lip lines or did not apply evenly, so those things really hurt the ratings. The Mineralize Rich Lipsticks were better, in general, and are a more buildable and pigmented formula with a luminous sheen and feel hydrating when worn.
