MAC Spice Lipstick, Lipglass, and Nail Polish Swatches and Review – Fashion Sets

This past month, MAC has launched a really interesting concept collection called Fashion Sets. The idea of Fashion Sets, is to take a top selling MAC lip product and pair it up with a matching lipglass and nail lacquer. While the polish and lipglass may not always be a 100% identical shade to the lipstick, it all works to create a coordinating lip and nail look.

There are four categories of Fashion Sets, so if you’re looking for a particular one you might need to do a bit of clicking. The Spice Set is part of Fashion Sets: North America and Fashion Sets: Europe & Africa.

What the MAC website has to say about Fashion Sets:

Rebel in New York, Russian Red in Dubai, Snob in Sao Paulo, Saint Germain in Tokyo, Morange in Paris: these must-have lip shades so coveted by M∙A∙C fans around the world, that we created 3-piece mini-collections of Lipstick, Lipglass, and Nail Lacquer trios in 7 classic palettes. Perfectly coordinated, regionally inspired.

(L-R: Spice Lipstick, Spice Lipglass, Spice Nail Lacquer)

Spice Lipstick

Spice Lipstick is described as a midtonal neutral nude and is a satin finish. It appears on me as more of a rosy plum with a hit of beige to neutralize it. The lipstick is extremely pigmented and smooth, wearing nicely even without a gloss over top.

Spice Lipglass

Spice Lipglass is also described as a midtonal neutral nude. It pairs nicely with the lipstick in that it’s also a rosy shade, but with more browned beigeness to it than plum. This lipglass is nicely pigmented and super creamy.

When the two are combined they soften each other into a less severe shade of rosy nude. A glossy lip for a sweet summer day! How could you not want this pair?!

Spice Nail Lacquer

Spice Nail Lacquer is again described as a midtonal neutral nude. It’s almost jelly-like in it’s consistency and is a beautiful and appropriate shade for any time. Three coats were used in the above photo, and you can still catch a bit of visible nail line.

The Spice set is a trio of rosy beige goodness. It’s easy to take the three pieces and transfer your look from work-safe to a deeper lip on a night out. You can’t help but be classy when wearing Spice!

On the MAC website, they’ve made purchasing the three piece set easy for you! Unfortunately, the Spice set is unavailable at this time because the Lipstick is listed as “coming soon”. So, be on the lookout for this set to make another appearance!

The set retails for $45.00 but if you’d like to purchase the items separately (maybe you don’t want that lipstick?) you can get the nail polish for $16.00, and the lipstick and lipglass for $14.50 each.
