A lot of people don’t know this, but the lyrics to Parliament’s famous 1976 single, Give Up the Funk, originally went like this:
Ow, we want the chunk
Give up the chunk
Ow, we need the chunk
We gotta have that chunk [2x]
The bodacious bits of chunky glitter in the nine MAC Superglass shades ($18 each) are so big, eye-catching and IN YO FACE that they’re making me break into song (like so many things do!).
Why don’t you stick around?
I expected glitter chunks this big to make these glosses feel gritty, but the formula slides onto my lips. They’re sticky, though, despite how gracefully they glide. As a matter of fact, I think they may be a little stickier than MAC Lipglasses are, for what it’s worth.
As far as the rest of the senses go, they’re unflavored but have a light vanilla scent.

For layered lip looks, Superglass should work like a charm. I can see the medium pigmentation, dramatic shimmer and glassy shine really complementing staple lipsticks and lip pencils.

Some things to consider…
I’m not completely sold on the Superglass glitter… I prefer smaller, finer pieces of bling, and the uneven shapes and large sizes make it look messy to me (on the lips).

And then there’s how the glitter likes to travel. I get about three hours of total wear time out of these glosses, but within about 30 minutes the glitter’s already begun to migrate outside the outline of my lips, with chunks pooling at the corners and outside my natural lip line. So not cute…
I don’t think I’ll rush to grab the Superglass glosses when they hit MAC counters on May 6, but hard core glitter gals are in for a treat. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B-
