MAC Fashion Sets – Myth Lipstick, Lipglass and Nail Lacquer: Photos, Swatches and Review

Fashion Sets is MAC’s newest collection featuring “sets” of matching Lipstick, Lipglass, and Nail Lacquer. The colors were chosen based on how popular these shades of lipstick are in different regions of the world. This set features Myth, a permanent Lipstick and limited edition Lipglass and Nail Lacquer.

All three Myth products are available online and at counters and stores in the US since they are part of the North America and Europe/Africa groups of Fashion Sets. These sell for the usual prices, with Lipstick and Lipglass costing $14.50 and Nail Lacquer selling for $16.00.

Please excuse the flat lipstick, it’s been used a lot!

Myth Lipstick (Satin):   Myth is one of my all time favorite nude lipsticks! It’s a “light neutral nude” which is fairly neutral, but still warm, so it looks good on nearly any skintone and never looks too yellow or brown. It’s light, but not so light that it gives you zombie lips like some nudes do. As a Satin finish, it’s very smooth and somewhat shiny on the lips. I get opaque coverage with Myth, although I find that it’s so creamy that it can sometimes look a bit streaky or uneven when applied heavily from the tube. To fix that issue, I usually use a brush to apply it with, or spread it around with my finger a bit after I put it on. Myth wears for around 6 hours on me. Some good nude Lip Pencils to use with Myth are Subculture, Naked Liner, or What Comes Naturally.

Myth Lipglass:   Alright, so these are supposed to match… Clearly, Myth Lipglass is not a perfect match for the Lipstick. It’s much more peachy/yellow and a hint more cool toned. It’s almost opaque on the lips but not quite, despite how incredibly thick and creamy it feels. I think because of the thickness of this particular lipglass, it also make it settle into the lines on my lips. Myth Lipglass also contains the slightest bit of shimmer. It almost reminds me of the Viva Glam Gaga II Lipglass, but lighter and not at brown.

Myth Nail Lacquer (Cream):   Myth Nail Lacquer is a much better match to the lipstick than the Lipglass is! It’s a very pretty light neutral nude, but it’s still warm with a hint of peach to it, so it won’t make you look washed out. It actually made me look more tan (if that’s even possible being so pale). When I played around with it, it was streaky at first but was totally opaque and not streaky any more after the second coat. You can use a third if you want but if you apply the second coat thick enough you should be good.

As with all MAC Nail Lacquers, I get close to 4-5 days of wear without much chipping or tip wear. With a topcoat like MAC’s Overlacquer, it will last closer to a week.
