Move over mattes, and make way for MAC Creme Team!
The Cremesheen Glasses in the new MAC Creme Team collection fit nicely with the Cremesheen lipsticks released a few months ago.
I previewed three colors from the upcoming Creme Team collection, and all I have to say is halleluyar! I’m in love with the Cremesheen Glasses.
Creamsheen Glasses feel thinner, slicker than Lipglasses
I’ve never felt the Lipglasses were overly sticky, but some women do. For whatever it’s worth, the new glosses — both Petite Indulgence (sheer hot pink) and Looks Like Sin (sheer berry) — feel noticeably slicker, thinner and less sticky to me than the Lipglasses.
The texture reminds me of high quality E.V.O.O. (shout out to Rachel Ray!) — you know, the way good olive oil feels on your lips. That’s how it feels.
Pigmentation and durability
Although I prefer the way the Cremesheen Glasses feel, the Lipglasses win in the pigmentation department.
I think the Cremesheen Glass colors look brighter in the tube than they look on my lips, but when it comes to durability, the Cremesheens begin to fade after just a couple hours, while the Lipglasses seem to last about twice as long. That’s no big whoop to me, though, because I don’t trip over having to reapply often throughout the day.
To their credit, when the color of Cremesheen’s wears down, it actually looks really pretty, like a transparent, semi-shiny wash of color.
Right now, I think the closest products MAC has to the Cremesheen Glasses are their Lipgelee glosses. They feel similar and have the same faint vanilla scent but are just slightly thicker and aren’t flavored at all. The Cremsheen Glasses also last longer and have a little more pigmentation.

Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme In Your Coffee
A few new Cremesheen Lipstick colors join the new Cremesheen Glasses, yea! Right now, I’m really feelin’ Modesty, but Creme in Your Coffee runs a close second.
It’s a creamy pink brown that looks low key in the tube but oh-so-gaw-geous on the lips. I kinda think wearing it makes me feel more alive.
MAC got the mix between pink and brown just right — not too cool or too warm. I’m guessing ladies of all skin tones will be able to wear it well. It’s a fantastic neutral and totally reminds of something Bobbi Brown (aka the neutral lipstick queen) would create in her lipstick workshop. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
