Lip swatches of the five Lipglasses from the MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions Collection. Please excuse the hair! I took the world’s fastest shower before taking these pics and have absolutely no idea what’s going on with the birds nest on top of my head.

    You’re so lucky to have such nice white teeth that helps All My Purple Life look so good on you! If I wore that beautiful colour, my teeth would look jaundiced!!! 🙂

      GURL, I swear it helps to drink coffee/red wine/tea out with a straw. I learned that trick from one of my good friends from college — she’s a dentist!

  2. Nitro:licious 2046 is sooo prettyy

  3. Vijaya says:

    Actually, I like the way your hair looks (seriously). It gives the pix a casual feel – and isn’t that what lipgloss is about?

    Anyhoo, since I’m not one for purple or orange lip colours (as yet), I’d say all the rest look amazing!

    Question: How do you make Ev Rev work on lips that have two colours? I find that light lips look alright on my lower lip (which has a deep rose pigment), but look ‘odd’ (to me) on my upper lip, which is a dark brown colour.

    BTW, that Sonoran Rain looks sassy and fun!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Shiny,

      I know what you’re saying. I have a friend who has lips that are lighter on the top an darker on the bottom. You might want to line and fill in your lips first with a nude pencil — prolly something like MAC Subculture first.

      Sonoran Rain is fun! The gal behind it, Aileen, is a sweetheart.

  8. Trisha says:

    Sonoran Rain looks AWESOME on you. It goes really well with your skin tone/color. I totally want it. That’s probably my favorite out of this line.

  10. elle says:

    is there a lip color you don’t look good in?

    • Karen says:

      LOL, I look pretty awful in light nude beiges!!!

      What are you up to this weekend?

      • elle says:

        I’m gonna dream of an allergy free life and Chris Benz lancome GWP bag. 🙂 you?

        • Karen says:

          I’m gonna dream of an allergy free life too, heh!

          My weekend’s gonna be pretty mellow: watching Super 8 tonight, cleaning tomorrow and then family time on Sunday. My parents and brother are coming over to our house to celebrate my bday, my brother’s bday and father’s day. My mom’s making a bunch of Filipino dishes so I don’t have to cook, yay!

    • Tierra says:

      Here, here … they ALL look amazing on you! Cant wait for EvRev, it is totally my kind of color!!!

  11. shiny says:

    P.S: could you also do the eyeshadows? Pleeez?

  12. Rachel says:

    Gorgeous!!! I LOVE them all but especially Ev. Rev., All of my Purple Life and Sonoran. I want them all! 🙂

  13. Zeadelle says:

    Hi Karen!
    I honestly love Soronan Rain and Evolution Revolution 🙂
    But all the lipglass’ are quite gorgeous!

  14. raquel says:

    You look gorgeous!i like them all.

  15. *jen says:

    Karen, lean over here a sec!
    *looks around*
    Evolution Revolution is the prettiest.
    Don’t tell the others.
    *whistles nonchalantly*

  16. Hyzenthlay says:

    I happened to see Christine’s swatches first this morning, and only really liked Sonoran Rain and EvoRevo. Now I look at yours and they’re all GORGEOUS on you! Sheesh, at least I know I’m a lot closer to her color than yours, and these would not look so amazing on me. Sonoran Rain and EvoRevo it is!

    • Karen says:

      You’re going to look amazing in Sonoran Rain! 🙂

      • Hyzenthlay says:

        Aw, thank you, Karen. I’ll take a picture when I’m wearing both (not at the same time) and send them to you 🙂 Oooo, I just had an idea! What if a whole bunch of your readers do the same thing and allow you to post them? Then we could all show how EvoRevo looks for different people, AND it’d all be celebrating the amazing story of its creation.

  17. Dovey says:

    Evolution Revolution is definitely my favorite (and not just because I heart your blog!) I love milky peachy pink light colors and the name is awesome; EvRev might have to be my first MAC lipglass. I hope they don’t sell out before I can get my hands on one—

  18. Kim says:

    These are great and I’m so glad you’ve shown All of My Purple Life because it looks great on you (it had been terrifying me in the tube)! Of course, Ev-Rev is a must have. 🙂

    Btw, your hair looks great in the pics. Like you’ve been at the beach, in a good way. You know, Bumble & Bumble is charging a pretty penny for a styling product that gives gals hair like that. And you can get it with a quick shower! Take that, B&B. 🙂

  19. gio says:

    They all look gorgeous on you!

    Wow, now I want Caqui and Sonoran Rain in addition to Jealousy Wakes and ER. I think I have to sell an organ to pay for all this. Anyone need a kidney? 😛

  21. DLAOKC says:

    You look so stinkin’ good in EVERY color!

  22. Neetha says:

    Karen – Evolution Revolution looks great on you!!

    I loved the purple color too – But not sure if I can carry it well.

  23. karo says:

    They all look so wonderful,especially on you!

  28. Livvy says:

    Karen, what blush do you have on in all these pictures? You look great.

    Definitely getting ER 😀

    • Karen says:

      Hi Livvy,

      Thanks, girl! I’m wearing NARS Orgasm Blush (the powder version).

      I’m thrilled to hear you’re picking up a tube of EvRev. YAY!!! 🙂

      • Livvy says:

        Ah, thank you! I prefer more neutral lip colors myself, and your lipgloss is just… die for to say the least! lol

  29. Daya says:

    Hey Karen!

    Whats the color difference with the last two..Sonoran and Nitro? Both appear a red, but one seems more raspberry?


  30. Solangel says:

    Ooh it’s too bad these are only online! I have my heart set on Caqui and All of my Purple Life…so pretty!

  31. meimei says:

    Hello, blogger-inspired glosses!

    So far I’ve only read the back stories on EvRev (on MBB) and All My Purple Life (on Afrobella), but all of these glosses are gorgeous! And I’m pleasantly surprised by Nitro:Licious 2046 – the shade description I read sounded like something I can’t wear… but how can I resist a gloss named after the movie 2046?

    I should start a petition to get EvRev sold in Manila – beauty junkies would be all over that when they find out it’s been created and inspired by a Pinay 😉

  32. Heidi says:

    Besides EvRev (of course), I’m really liking the look of Caqui.

  33. yuri says:

    love your hair style in those pictures

  34. Pang says:

    I can’t til the 21st. It’s also my eldest son, Elliott, third birthday!!! After this collection I’m on no buy for makeup. Btw I love how everything looks so awesome on you. Have a wonderful weekend Karen.

  35. Vixen says:

    I could never pull off purple on my lips. But anyway, Caqui looks so pretty!

  36. peach_ says:

    I’m hoping I can snag your Evolution Revolution! You look STUNNING sporting red lips!

  37. Alicia says:

    Love them all and we have a similar colouring too…how do I choose after I put myself on a no buy….sigh! Great work!

  38. Phina says:

    They all look great on you!

  39. Brittany says:

    Hi Karen,
    Do you think Ev Rev will show up on darker pink lips? I find that the nudes always end up looking clear on me even though I’m pale! :-/

  40. Liz says:

    Sonoran Rain looks so so pretty on you, Karen!

  41. Danielle says:

    You look great in all of these colors! And I like your hair in these pics 🙂

  42. Instant Karma says:

    I want the three reddish ones, but I always want the reds, so that’s not surprising! Of course, it goes without saying that I’ll be getting Ev Rev, too :D. The purple is beautiful as well, but sadly wouldn’t look good on me :(. It looks great on you, however (all of them do!).

  43. You look best with Evolution Revolution! =)

  44. Gala says:

    Everyone has said it before, but you look stunning in all of the colors! Like, I’d be looking like a corpse with purple lips – but you look so.. voluptuous 🙂 My favs are EvoRevo and Sonoran Rain… Good job with the versatility of your shade!

  45. Eva says:

    I have my heart set on Caqui I think it would really suit me! It’s like the perfect red shade, aaaaaah I must have it!

  46. Love the purple one and the evolution revolution of course!

    Karen, you look so beautiful!
    Of course the lipglasses gave you a hand, but you look particularly pretty…

  50. Advah says:

    I love the swatches, thank you! This post is also a great reminder of the difference lipgloss can make to a whole look – need to start wearing minimal eye makeup and coloured glosses a bit more..

    Have a lovely weekend Karen! Those Filipino dishes you mentioned above sound lovely.. 😛

  51. xmaria says:

  54. Sasha says:

    Wow! You look amazing in all the lip colors, but I like you the best in your own EvRev:)
    I am loving the “natural” look with the EvRev and the NARS Orgasm blush.

    Will definitely order EvRev (I have a feeling this will be my go-to lipglass so I have to pick up a couple or more tubes yay!), Sonoran Rain, and Nitro:licious 2046.

    Thanks, Karen for creating such a versatile lipglass! I am logging on to the MAC website now to order:)
