The MAC Vera Collection Plushglasses Are Making Me Smile

Wearing MAC Plushglass in Pretty Plush on my lips

I’m alive…ALIVE!!


The tingle from my MAC Plushglass reminds me that I’m alive. 🙂

I’ve always been more of a MAC Lipglass kinda girl, but I have been quite enjoying the Plushglasses from the new MAC Vera collection this week.

Like the Lipglasses, they have MAC’s signature vanilla flavor and scent, but in a thinner, less sticky formula.

They also have a little bite to ’em — a slight bee-sting sensation that’s supposed to plump your pout. Of course, I can’t see a difference in the size of my lips with them on, but when it comes to lip plumping products in general, I almost never can. Gimmick or not, the effect appears to be subtle, though, and the slight sting subsides on me after about 10 minutes.

I was a little busier than usual this week and felt like I was always running behind. But three of the five MAC Vera Plushglasses — Pretty Plush (a soft pink with white pearl), Fashion Fanatic (a creamy pale pink) and Confetti (an orange coral with pearl) — helped me get through it and were never far from my side. At least one of the three was either in my purse or a jacket pocket at all times.

Because these three shades are fairly sheer, they’re pretty easy to apply when you’re rushing and/or off balance, like, say, while hauling @ss down a crowded San Francisco sidewalk as you try to make it to dinner on time.


I think they’re also a little more moisturizing than the Lipglasses, which is really nice. 🙂

As for wear time, I’m quite pleased. I get from 3-4 hours out of them, but I do have to reapply after every meal.

PRICE: $19.50 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at MAC stores, counters and also online

  1. I’m scared of these! I like the idea of a little tingle, but my lips are pretty sensitive so I’ve never tried these. The Buxom lipglosses feel really intense for me, though they are wearable.

    You look really pretty in these photos 🙂

    I was reading that Confetti is an orange coral with pearl and when I have seen the swatches… so dissapointed! I thougt it was exactly what I was looking for but it seems really sheer and more pinky than corally to me 🙁 I think I´ll skip these because I´m more into opaque lipglosses.

  9. Oh I love the colorful heart-filled paper! It’s a very bunbunmakeuptips-feel kind of background. Hoho! You look like a very trendy doctor in the pictures by the way! 😀
