MAC's Newest - Plushglass!

MAC has finally ventured into the lip plumping lip gloss market. I mean they had to just in order compete. We all know that lip plumpers are a temporary fix, with some working better than others, so I was anxious to try Plushglass.

As I started swiping the shades over my hand, I knew I had a very hard decision to make. Pretty Plush, Plus Luxe, Wildly Lush, Big Kiss, and Cushy White were my favorites. And if I hadn't just spent almost $400 at Sephora in my immediate stop before, I would have taken them all. But I finally settled on Pretty Plush (a very light pink with opalescent pearl, very similar to Oyster Girl Lipglass) and Cushy White (clear, with a hint of pearl, more like a sheen).

Almost immediately upon leaving the store, I whipped one out of the bag, Pretty Plush, and applied it over my slightly worn off lipstick. The vanilla flavor was there, but the taste of cinnamon was undetected. Then about 30 seconds or so after applying, it became cool, not too tingly, with just a fresh and cool feeling.

A few minutes later, I checked to see if I noticed any extra fullness. My lips seemed a bit fuller, more so smoother and hydrated looking.

Happy? Yes, of course. I mean it is another new lipgloss, from MAC no less. But would I purchase it on the sheer fact that I wanted fuller lips? Probably not. Bottom-line, if you love lipgloss, the shades are beautiful enough to want to buy Plushglass on that premise alone.

Plushglass is $17.50  at maccosmetics.com

I tried the new Plushglass the other day, and didn't really notice anything either. It felt a little tingly, but I didn't feel a change in my 'plumpness' :)
I do love the colors, though! And I like that the applicator is a sponge tip and not a brush tip!
I am a MAC addict and I love these new glosses. I too think they did not do much to my lips in terms of plumping. The colours are great enough to want them all the same.
i want this in wildly lush so bad. i can't find it anywhere and it is sold out at mac - gloss - and nordies.
I'm disappointed in their ad for this gloss though. What were they thinking?
MAC PLUSHGLASS is the best. The flavor is great. My lips are very thin, and I do notice a difference when applying it to my dry lips. Maybe you all need to be using it on it's own with no liner or lipstick. :) I am so happy with this and I can't wait to get all of the colors!!!
Love them! I bought the clearest one - and it rocks on my naked lips!
I was at MAC the other day (with a guy friend no less, unsurprisingly, he wasn't very interested) and I asked the saleslady for a lip plumper because the too faced lip injection extreme lip plumper from Sephora hurt like shit and cost 39 bucks for a tiny little thing no larger than my thumb (though it had worked somewhat). The saleslady introduced me to plushglass and I'm happy to say that I'm very pleased with the product. I got it in a soft nude kinda colour, and it came out almost clear. But it's not too heavy(unlike the sephora one) and it didn't hurt! I felt a cool tingle and for the ultra-sensitive, it may be slightly uncomfortable, but the tingling goes away after a while and I definitely noticed a difference. I have pretty fully lips already, but it looked noticeably more volumized, I guess and even my guy friend noticed. I love it a lot, and it was only about 20 bucks CDN, which is a pretty good deal to me. Anyway, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable and pretty lip plumper.
