12 Ways to Wear MAC Evolution Revolution Lipglass

Published in: MAC Makeup, Top Posts

When I imagined MAC Evolution Revolution Lipglass ($14.50), I really wanted it to be flexible — something that wouldn’t only look pretty on its own, but would also work with as many other products as possible.


Here are 12 possible pairings to spark some ideas (featuring some of my favorite peach, pink and coral MAC Lip Pencils, Cremestick Liners and Lipsticks). Oh, and please let me know in the comments if you can think of any other cool combos to try.

  1. mill says:

    wow! they’re all beatiful but ravishing and summer fruit make the best, most gorgeous combos!

  2. Fieran says:

    Darn, Karen this is such a versatile lipglass. I am so bummed out that nothing from the collection will be available for us international readers :/

  3. Melisa says:

    i want this lipgloss! the summerfruit combo is so pretty

  4. Rona says:

    ^^Exactly how I feel! I will just have to hope that some end up on ebay so I can bag some!

  5. AtelierGal says:

    When I’d first laid eyes on Evolution Revolution, the first lippy that came to mind is CANMAKE in Peach Beige. It is peachy with subtle pink undertones that deserves an extra kick aka Evolution Revolution πŸ™‚

  6. Great photos, Karen. I can only imagine how long it took you to take them. Love all the variants by the way, but the one with Impassioned is uber hot!

  7. oh goodness, all the combos are so lovely! i’ll definitely be picking evolution revolution up :).

    I love all the combos. Cant wait to purchase this for sure

  9. Chris25 says:

    It’s a good thing I wasn’t wearing makeup when I read the previous post about how ER was created. I was crying like a baby. What a great story! I can’t wait to buy your lip gloss.

  10. Tiffany says:

    Wow, these combos all look so great that I can’t pick a favorite!!

  11. I love that look in the first picture of Sandy B. So SEDUCTIVE. *wolf whistle*

  12. Michelle says:

    This is gorgeous — if I could create a lipglass it would be pretty close to ER! So pretty — I am so excited to get my hands on it.

    I can tell just by looking at it that it would be gorgeous over Marquise D lipstick, too! That has become one of my faves.

    Congrats on your beautiful color!!

  13. Rae says:

    Talk about versatile! *All* of these combinations look gorgeous, Karen πŸ™‚ (Loving EvRev layered with Impassioned, in particular!)

    Gorgeous! Did you shoot all these in one day and do outfit changes in between each swatch/photo? hahaha I can totally picture that =P Runway EvolutionRevolution show!

  15. Christina says:

    Beautiful lip combos! πŸ™‚ The only other coral-y lipstick I can think of that wasn’t listed was Ever Hip! :O (After seeing this, I think I need to get me some Impassioned!)

    • Atanza says:

      That’s totally what I was thinking – I will definitely be picking up this lipglass and layering it over Ever Hip. I think it’s going to be beautiful!

  16. Crystal says:

    This is proof they should come to you for more lip gloss shades in the future! I have Hibiscus and Impassioned and I am going to try those combo’s when I get your gloss! Just beautiful!

  17. shiny says:

    By diddly, you’ve been busy! (How long did putting everything together take?) They all look great!!!

  18. Lynn says:

    I love it! Can’t wait to buy it!

  19. I LOVE this post! The pictures are AMAZING! and the time and effort you put in is always reflected in your posts!

  20. Jessi says:

    ALL the combos look amazing. And I was right, I need Evolution Revolution and all the other lippies you paired it with. I especially love it with Impassioned. I think it is so versatile it would pair well with anything. MAC should make it permanent!

    Hol moly, that’s beautiful! I love it with Dervish, and the name Evoltuiton Revlotion is fantastic. Great work Karen! And can I say, your eyes look stunning here. What are you wearing?

  24. Vijaya says:

    Not gonna lie, pinky peaches never really appeal to me. You’re seriously rocking these, though. =D

  26. Chelle says:

    LOL my wallet hates you for this post btw.

  27. Arianne says:

    Oh my goodness. Just last week I was in the mood to get a peachy pink lip gloss, and then THIS, Evolution Revolution, happens. I love it so much!

    All of these look fantastic. You look fantastic, Karen!

  28. Caity says:

    I’m so excited about this lipglass! I love how it looks with the different lipsticks, it’s going to be so versatile. I think this will be a staple in my collection πŸ™‚

  29. Kim says:

    I really like the Dervish combo, though they all looked great! πŸ™‚

    What did you think of GoT from Sunday night? I could have done without the Littlefinger confession to his “employees” but, it’s HBO, so what are you going to do? Even though I knew what was going to happen with Ned, I was still anxious during the build-up. Were you surprised?

    • Karen says:

      I need to take Dervish out more often… it needs some loving!

      Yeah, and the confession to his employees was… awkward! I mean, was that an audition or something? Never mind, I don’t need to know.

      Poor Ned Stark can’t seem to catch a break. Homebody is having a ROUGH couple of days!

      My favorite lines from the episode: “I always wanted to be a wizard. I’m serious.” HAHA!

      • Kim says:

        Yeah, I feel the same way. That scene was not in the books – it was a little color added by HBO. πŸ™‚ I know, poor Ned. I’d like to throttle that weasely Littlefinger! Sam was funny with the wizard comment – he’s pretty good at cheering others up, despite being so unhappy himself.

  30. Love the post, the various colours are gorgeous and suit your skin beautifully!

    Wish they’d market it outside the US though :\

  32. Hey..Loved the combinations..Especially the last one…Crosswires and *your* lipglass. Congratulations on creating such a beautiful shade πŸ™‚

  33. Beth says:

    My first comment after months of lurking…

    Just wanted to say the color you created is so prettyprettypretty! Can I get an Amen?!

    I’m going to have to camp out on my computer Jun 21st to grab one before they sell out.
    Good job, Karen. That trip is the makeup junkie’s equivalent of winning the golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s little operation… Lucky you!

    I love your reading your reviews.


    • Karen says:

      Hi Beth,

      Thanks for popping in today! It’s so nice to “see” you. πŸ™‚

      I hope that you snag a tube and that you love it as much as I do.

  34. Nina says:

    my fave combo is the one w/ crosswires! lovely lipglass, Karen!

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, Nina!

      I like that combo too.

      Hope you’re feeling better today and that you had a grrrreat weekend. πŸ™‚

      • Nina says:

        we had a great long weekend. we went to the beach at 4 am on sunday and just hung out til 2 pm. got home and crashed and didnt get up til monday hah!

        crosswires might just be my fave lipstick ever. πŸ™‚

  35. Anna says:

    LOVE!! Since I got myself 2 tubes of that Hibiscus (and plan to get Crosswires when I’m out of both… lol) I might as well buy myself a couple tubes of Evolution Revolution as well!!

    Congratulations on this amazing opportunity and the beautiful results! Very well deserved πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Anna,

      I just picked up Hibiscus over the weekend and I’m in love. I was afraid it was going to be sold out — thank goodness they had a few tubes left. What eye makeup have you been wearing it with?

  36. Barb says:

    The Impassioned combo was fabulous!!

  37. Glosslizard says:

    Congratulations, Karen!!!

    I love all the combos, Crosswires looks like it was made to match your gorgeous gloss! πŸ™‚

  38. Vonvon says:

    This is really an awesome shade! Love its versatility! Would go very well with some of my clothes with similar shades!

    This is so great! I just bought Insynch and Costa Chic- great to know I can have another look with ER!!!! Such a great colour- you look amazing in all your photos! Thanks for the modelling! LOL πŸ™‚

  41. Tiffany Diva says:

    BTW- Insynch and ER is such a JLO look- love this! My fav combo hands down!

  42. jena says:

    i think its amazing that you have your own shade of lipglass!!! I am definitely buying at least 2 tubes when they get released. Such a gorgeous shade! I like that there are flecks of sparkle that you normally don’t see. They make your lips look so glowy and beautiful! Side note, what font do you use for the EVOLUTION REVOLUTION? I’m looking for a font to do my business cards for my cleaning company and I love that font but I can’t find anything similar. Thanks! <3 Jena

  43. Jenn says:

    ooo I think it looks best on you when paired with ravishing. For pale lips I think it would be gorgeous over creme d’ nude or MarquiseÒ€ℒd from the wonder woman collection. Congrats, I can’t wait to pick this up! πŸ™‚ How long will it be available?

  44. PeeChee says:

    All beautiful Karen!! I totally remember that band pick in your other post. LOL I can’t wait to get my hands on the lipglass. πŸ™‚

  45. brittany says:

    Karen, this is beautiful, and I’m excited to buy it, BUT….aren’t YOU so excited? I can’t even imagine what it’s like for you that you CREATED A MAC LIPGLASS!!!! How amazing!!!

  46. LOL I think you’ve covered all the MAC combos πŸ˜€ Thanks for including full face photos+up close swatches+product shots, that must have taken awhile! I think this would look really gorgeous over your Estee Lauder lipliner in Tawny…if you ever want to try that out~

  47. Nadia A. says:

    I really wanted to make Ravishing lipstick work for me, but it looked too neon on me. I ended up buying Shy Girl lipstick instead. I think Evolution Revolution would go really well with Shy Girl lipstick.

  48. Tammy says:

    I’m stocking up on this color! I’m so happy for you and the other bloggers who made this collection! AH! *happy dance*

    Wow, I would have never thought this color would be so versatile! I actually don’t have any lipglasses so I will have to get this one. As for pairings, what about a slightly pink nude lip by pairing creme cup lipstick and evolution revolution. I think that would be really pretty and neutral for everyday or with a smokey eye.

  55. Laura says:

    We really need to have this available internationally! Or at least in the uk! It looks great. Well done for creating such a beautiful lipgloss!

  56. Kylie says:

    I’m soooo excited to purchase this! I looked at the collection and your “creation” is probably going to b the only thing I purchase–I love it so much!!!

  57. Roda says:

    You are rocking’ in these pics! I love the combos! I need me some Evolution Revolution now! Hahaha…super, duper excited now! I’m inspired to relook at my own beauty stash & play. πŸ™‚

  58. Cassy says:

    You really should work for MAC. I don’t even like lipglass (like I reeeeeally don’t like it) but I need yours.

  59. Alka says:

    Wow – they are all gorgeous!!! My two faves would have to be subculture and ravishing. I will definitely be purchasing all three! πŸ™‚

  60. Instant Karma says:

    They all look great! However, now I’m a little sad that by the time I placed my MAC order, Hibiscus was already gone. I’ll just have to do some experimentation of my own!

    I’m so happy for you, and my happiness cannot be contained by one comment on the original post, lol. I’ll spare you the cheesy rambling about how proud all your readers are of you, and just say once again that this is super exciting. πŸ™‚

    However, I think MAC should’ve given you at least one more product so that Tabs could get his own shade! Everyone could have tabby eyes with a light yellow-green satin eyeshadow. I can see the ad copy now. There’d be a model in a brown striped dress, with the Tabs shadow perfectly accenting a bold cat eye. Below her, it’d say, “Tabs for MAC — So Beautiful, Your Cat Will Forget How Tragically Hairless You Are.”

    Aaaand with that, it’s entirely possible that it’s time for me to go to bed, lol. Congrats again! πŸ˜€

  61. Giana says:

    How would Evolution Revolution look with Hue?

  62. Shan says:

    ERL + Subculture is gorgeous! Why, oh why is this only available in N. America? Sigh….

    You know what, Karen? Though I live in Singapore, I’m gonna grab one of this when it comes out on 21st June! It’s sooooo pretty, and the story behind EvRev is just beautiful. πŸ™‚ I was so touched! All the lip combos here are so pretty, it just makes me wanna get my hands on it even more!!!

  66. Elle says:

    CONGRATULATIONS Karen!! This is so exciting. I cannot wait to wear this!!

  67. Liz says:

    I just love all these looks. I was too late on the Surf Baby collection. Everything I wanted was gone πŸ™

    I did, however, find this clear acrylic organizer. A product that I had been looking for FOR EVER. Found it while I was searching for MAC stuff. I placed my order on 5/26 and received my organizer on 5/31. It is very well made and so pretty. Seller is really nice too. I thought I’d share this since everyone I know is looking for the clear cube.

  75. Dominique Randall says:

    Congratulations on creating such a beautiful lipglass!! Your lipglass will be my very first purchase from MAC. I am excited to try out the brand.

  76. Meta says:

    At first I wasn’t so sure about the shade that you have created Karen but looking at these lip combos has made me think twice about it! And this is coming from a girl who hasn’t bought anything from MAC for the past two years now! Well done skin tone twin!!

  77. enchantress says:

    I think Evolution Revolution will be the only product I will buy from this collection….
    This is only product would go almost with any lip product..

  78. Stephany says:

    OMG I love it!! I’ve been looking for the perfect “nude/sheer pinkish” lipgloss that can be worn alone and with nude lip liners and lipsticks and after I saw this post I am definitely picking up at least 2 tubes of Evolution Revolution. Great Job && Congrats!!
    I really enjoy reading your blog πŸ™‚

  79. mterry2992 says:

    I’m sooo excited for this to come in the mail πŸ™‚ I love it with Costa Chic and I may just have to pick up Impassioned because they looks so good together!

  80. Paigest says:

    I can’t wait to try it with my In Synch that’s the first thing I thought of. I also want to see what it does to I think it’s called Red Show Stopper! Look at you Karen next thing you know you’ll be chillin’ with Lady Gaga cookin’ up something else!

  81. mrslovelyann says:

    I love your lipglass…you even paired it with Ravishing…which is my current lipstick from Mac. I can’t wait to get Evolution Revolution!

  83. Mandy says:

    Ack I JUST bought Ravishing, thinking it would be pretty under EvRev!! Then I see this post and I want every single other lipstick you listed too hehe

  84. Stephany says:

    Hey Karen,
    I’ve been using Evolution Revolution on top of MAC Shy Girl. I tried some of the lipsticks you paired it with but it didn’t look very good on me. BTW I love your lipglass period. Just on its own it is so beautiful I’ve been using it everyday since It came in the mail. πŸ™‚

  85. Candace Dessert says:

    omg karen .. i am a newbie and i am obsessed with you and tabs .. he is wonderful and thanks again .. i just ordered ev rev and i am dying .. coming in tomorrow.. cannot wait.. gonna use it with viva glam v and nars dolce vita..both will look fantastic.. πŸ™‚

    Hi Karen! I was googling coral lips and found this post. Loving the Evolution Revolution pairings!
    I noticed a few people also asked questions about what you were wearing on your eyes. I was wondering the same thing!

    Could do a tutorial on this very natural eye look. (or maybe list what you used). I like the unglittery-ness of it, which is just what I need as a 46 soon to be 47 year old makeup addict! Thank you Karen!!!
