G’morning and happy Tuesday, cutie pie.



I thought you might like to see another of those MAC travel exclusives, and this one’s a real trip (LOL!). It’s called 3 Cremesheens, and it’s part of the new MAC Packed to Go collection.

Like all of MAC’s other travel exclusives, 3 Cremesheens will spend most of its time at select domestic and international airports and duty free stores when its flight arrives this spring (prices will vary by location).

I’d originally heard that the set would include Boy Bait, one of my favorite Cremesheens, but that appears incorrect. The set I have came with a pretty light pink called Right Image instead.

Coverage comes in at sheer-to-medium, which means they have a fair amount of pigment for a gloss, and I love how smooth, slick and non-sticky the MAC Cremesheen Glass glosses feel on my lips. With them, I think MAC did one of the better jobs out there in Lip Land when it comes to scent and taste — it’s a yummy light vanilla — getting the intensity of both just right.

    I’m the odd person out who tends to prefer her glosses sticky. I find they last longer if they are.

    I think I’ll check out some Cremesheens in general now, since I’m not going to be in an airport anytime soon. The formula sounds right up my alley!

    OK, Double Dare looks awesome, but I’m resisting the temptation to purchase any lip products since I know I won’t wear them! :)

    • Karen says:

      Haha, I’m the same way with crazy-looking false lashes. My inner drag queen loves them, but I know I probably won’t want to exert the effort. :)

      • Kim says:

        I’m with you there! I’m crazy about false lashes too, but have yet to try them (I have an irrational fear of gluing my eyelids shut or yanking out my own lashes by mistake)! :)

        • Karen says:

          You are not alone! If/when you’re feeling adventurous maybe try cutting your false lashes in half first? That’s the only way I can seem to work them. Gluing on shorter bits is much, much easier than the full-size ones!

    Right Image and Double Dare are very pretty.

    i LOVELOVELOVE cremesheen glasses. i should ask one of our travelling crew to get this for me LOL… such a lovely set, and i dont have any of them yet!

    • Karen says:

      LOL, do it! :) Those airport duty free stores have treasure trove of goodies… food, makeup, booze, etc. etc.

      • Nina says:

        its just — theyre all dudes. i worry that they might bring me something weird and unknown LOL! :D

        scary thought!

        my fave cremesheen glass is boy bait – its my fave my lips but better color!

        • Karen says:

          LOL… I figured as much. I’ve been in this boat before with El Hub. The trick to give the dude the specific product name. Then, tell him to go directly to somebody who works there and ask, “Do you have this?” Most of the time it works, LOL!

          • Nina says:

            i was thinking of saving a picture and emaling it to this one guy who i know will buy it for me (provided i send him the $$ in advance!) …

            im checking his travel dates now! :D

          • Karen says:

            That just might work. Often the stores with makeup have stuff for guys too (colognes and whatnot), so tell him he won’t feel out of place! :)

          • Nina says:

            selling point — he can get something for his wife too!

  12. kana says:

    Double dare is very nice! Are they on the sticky side? I’m sorry if you said it, my mind is totally not awake yet. This bac and forth weather is such a killer. Ive had allergies for the past two months! Hope your week is going good, Karen! :)

    Double Dare looks lovely!

    Lalalove Double Dare!
    They are so cute..

  15. Alka says:

    Double dare is sooooo pretty! I may have to check out the cremesheens again. I have had an aversion to Mac glosses in the past but it might be worth trying them again for such a pretty color. Karen – is there going to be a list of airports that have these products? I looked for them 2 weeks ago in the Ontario, Denver, Las Vegas and New Orleans airports but did not see them at all.

  16. steph b says:

    I am totally loving Double Dare on you. I am definitely going to have to check that out. I am so with you on the formula feeling fab on. I’ve been wearing Partial to Pink all week.

    In other gloss news, Chanel contacted me to say that the notice I got about Boy being sold out and my order cancelled was an error. To make it up to me, they are going to overnight my tube. Yeah!

  17. Grace Lin says:

    karen, here’s my story. so after reading your first post on mac’s packed to go set i was in London, Zurich and Vancouver but I wasnt able to find the packed to go brushes! Only London had anything from the collection but just not the brushes :(

    Is there anyway I can buy those brushes although not travelling? :( :( :(

    • Karen says:

      Hi Grace,

      As far as I know the Packed to Go Brush Sets are available only at airports and duty free stores. A couple years ago MAC made a few travel exclusives available on their website, so there may be a chance that they’ll do that again with this collection, but it doesn’t happen often.

      • Grace says:

        Sorry should have made that clear but I was traveling through Vancouver airport, heathrow airport and Zurich airport but no brushes :(

  18. Tina says:

    Yay cremesheens my fave :)
    Any idea how much the set will be?
