MAC Creme Team Collection Reviews

Creme Team expands on MAC’s new lipstick formulation, Cremesheen, with additional shades of Lipstick and a brand new Lipglass formulation. Ultra sheer and uber moist, it features flat pigments and a creamy high shine finish to lips.

Cremesheen Lipstick ($14)
I am so glad MAC decided to add more colors in the Cremesheen formula and that they are going to be part of the permanent collection! I loved my Creme D’Nude and Modesty from the previous Cremesheen Collection and like them, these new colors are super creamy and highly pigmented. I went home with Crème Cup and Lavender Whip, which are both perfect for spring.

From Top to Bottom (left to right):

* Crosswires: Clean pinky orange
* Shy Girl: Creamy neutral coral beige
* Spice is Nice: Creamy dark warm brown
* Hang-up: Deep berry
* Crème in Your Coffee: Creamy mid-tone pink brown
* Crème Cup: Light blue pink. This is a gorgeous nude pink color. Love love lovesit!
* Lickable: Bright clean blue pink. Very similar to my favorite MAC Girl About Town lipstick.
* Lavender Whip: Light cool lavender. This is the most unique color out of them all. It may look lavender in the tube but it shows up a really cool-toned pink with just the right amount of purple on me.

Cremesheen Glass ($18)
These are limited edition and will be available only through the end of March. They come in a tube that is slightly longer than the regular Tinted Lipglass.

Compared to the Tinted Lipglass, these are a lot creamier and definitely less drying. Plus the colors are *beautiful*! When used alone, it gives a sheer glossy look with just a bit of color but when used on top of the Cremesheen lipsticks, it really makes the lipstick pop and gives such a nice glossy look!

I got Petite Indulgence and Partial To Pink and I still want more!

From Top to Bottom (left to right):

* Looks Like Sin: Sheer deep berry
* Crème Anglaise: Mid-tone neutral mauve
* Partial To Pink: Light creamy yellow pink with light gold pearl
* Melt in Your Mouth: Mid-tone creamy clean pink
* Petite Indulgence: Mid-tone bright blue pink. This looks like a cool-toned hot pink color on me. Totally hot and I can’t wait to wear it!
* Fashion Scoop: Pale cool baby pink with light pearl. While this looks really pretty in the tube, the color barely shows up on me – it just looks like clear gloss with shimmer.
* Boy Bait: Light neutral beige with pearl
* Ever So Rich: Sheer lilac. This looks so pretty on top of Lavender Whip but on its own, it shows up almost clear with the faintest bit of lilac.

Cremestick Liner ($14.50)

*Sublime Culture: Neutral pink
*Pink Treat: Dirty pink
*Caramellow: Neutral caramel
*Velvetella: Blackened plum
