MAC Sugarsweet: Review and Swatches

MAC Sugarsweet

This spring, M·A·C is all temptation... frostings, finishes, fillings. Each of them whipped, creamy, deliciously stylish, as inspired by the world's most popular sugar-sweet desserts. Never has a season looked so eat-me-up gorgeous!

Overall, we see a whole bunch of repromotes to the Sugarsweet collection that your wallet will be thanking MAC for. It's a great time to stock up on colors such as Lollipop Loving lipstick (from fafi) and Aquavert eyeshadow (from lure, bait, hook) that some of us missed out on.

What I picked up: Sugarshot eyeshadow, Sweet Thing lipstick and Peppermint Patti nail polish. 

MAC Sugarsweet Eyeshadow swatches

Most of these were repromotes from previous MAC collections that I already own.  The only shade I picked up was Sugarshot.  Much like Nylon or Phloof, Sugarshot is a great hightlighter that you can't go wrong with.

MAC Sugarsweet Lipstick Swatches

Mostly repromotes and permnament colors, Lollipop loving and Sweet Thing were my two faves. 

MAC Sugarsweet Tri Color Lipglass swatches 

Tricolour Lipglass is a colourwave of three stacked shades with varying pearl combination in one lipstick vial.

The tricolour lipglass sure sits pretty in her little container with three blingtastaic colors sure to grab you attention.  But, as far as the color pay-off, notta. Tasty, the only one I picked up had the best color pay off out of the five.

MAC Sugarsweet nail polish swatches

Seasonal Peach (repromote from Cremesheen) and Peppermint Patti are MAC's two newest editions to the Sugarsweet Collection. When I was at the MAC store swatching, I noticed Seasonal Peach wasn't nearly as streaky as I remembered. Espically, with only two coats being used on the above swatch and one coat with Peppermint Patti.

Yes, Peppermint Patti is beyond gorgeous which doesn't suprise me because it's lighter shade of green (hello). You might tell yourself you don't need it, but you really DO!

I'll be posting the nail polish swatches in a seperate post later today. The Sugarsweet collection is now available MAC Cosmetics.  Seasonal Peach and Peppermint Patti sold out already on the MAC site, but you can still find them at Nordies, Macy's or your MAC counter.

I picked up Peppermint Patty after work form the MAC store in the Mall of America and the girl said she only two left! I was very tempted to buy them both but only got one and put it on last night... It is such a fabulous color, but I totally agree with the streaky part. You will need three coats but it is worth it. Now I just need to track down a backup bottle.

I also picked up Peppermint Patti after work yesterday and heard the same story! I guess the counter at Macy's was mobbed in the morning so there were only 3 left. I'm glad I went when I did! I picked up the "Consume Me" Tricolour but am still on the fence about whether it was worth the money in regards to the staying power. Do you think it lasts? I'm desperate for a gloss that stays!

Hi Sarah, Isn't the color just fab?! I love it :) So, glad you could get one at least. Hi Clapster, Yay!! Glad you snatched on up! Do you love it? The tricolour is pretty sheer and the lasting power is so so. Chanel Glossimers are my absolute favorite, they rock! They cost about 5 bucks more than MAC's Tricolur, but is well worth the purchase :) Try visiting a Chanel counter, I'm sure they'll give you a little purse size sample to try out. :)

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
