The MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions Collection just came out on June 21st. Several beauty bloggers got the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create the lip gloss of their dreams. (There are also some gorgeous eye shadows in the collection.)
While I wanted to buy all of the MAC Tinted Lipglasses, I stuck to my budget and only bought one.
The MAC All of My Purple Life Lipglass didn’t just speak to me – it screamed at the top of its lungs, “Get me because I’m different!” (Usually I don’t like getting yelled at, but from a MAC lip gloss, I can overlook it…hehe!)
This unique lip color was created by Afrobella, who I hadn’t heard of before this MAC collection dropped. Her goal was to come up with the perfect purple for all women of color.
This pigmented purple MAC lip gloss isn’t for the faint of heart. And I hesitated to buy it for that very reason. Normally I like wearing clear, pink, or beige-gold on my lips. And I rarely wear super-dark, bold lip colors. So the MAC All of My Purple Life Tinted Lipglass was a far departure from anything in my current stash.

Note: Strange thing. I took all of these lip photos in the same light, but the camera made my skin color look completely different when I wore the gloss and when I didn’t. I assure you that I’m not as orange as the photos with gloss would suggest!

MAC All of My Purple Life Lipglass Review
The MAC All of My Purple Life Tinted Lipglass packs a powerful punch of color and tiny silver sparkles. It’s a deep purple-berry shade that’s hella dramatic! Very pigmented, but not opaque.
When I first swiped this on my lips, I said, “Whoa!” It’s so much darker and more dramatic compared to lip colors I own. I’ll definitely wear this out, but I’ll have to tone down my eye makeup to balance it off. If I don’t, I think my face would look ‘too made up’.
I showed one of my guy friends, and he said that it looks like I’m in a play! Hahaha! He wasn’t trying to make fun of me, but he said that it’s very dramatic. So this hue definitely isn’t for the shy violets out there.
All of My Purple Lipglass has the signature MAC scent, which is a subtle vanilla cake batter scent. I love it so much! In fact, when I use a lip gloss from any other brand, I always wish that it had the MAC vanilla fragrance.
The MAC All of My Purple Life Tinted Lipglass comes with a doe-foot sponge applicator. I prefer these kinds of wands because I feel like I have more application control and it slides easily on my lips. Never was a fan of brush wands. But, yeah, a doe-foot wand soaks up more product than a brush wand. I don’t mind this.
Like all MAC Lipglasses, All of My Purple Life has a sticky formula that is on the thicker side. If you strongly dislike stickiness of any kind, avoid this like the plague!
I don’t mind the stickiness, and I actually prefer thicker glosses because that usually means it will coat my lips better and that it will last longer.
The All of My Purple Life lip gloss actually softened my lips with light conditioning, but I wouldn’t use it to heal chapped lips. Keep your lip balm handy!
I wore this lip gloss for over 2 hours, and it held up very strong in terms of color. Closer to the 3-hour mark, it started to fade, and the finish wasn’t as glossy. This is pretty standard wear time for me.
US & Canadian Website Exclusive
The sucky thing is that you have to buy this color on the US and Canadian websites. (You can’t get it from MAC stores or MAC counters.) This makes it harder for people outside these countries to get a hold of this amazing purple lip gloss.
Also, if you want this MAC lipglass, I suggest that you buy it ASAP because it’s only available for a limited time.
Final Verdict: 10/10
The MAC All of My Purple Life Tinted Lipglass is a color that got me more excited than any other lip shade. It’s totally unique in my small lip-gloss collection, and I think it’ll be fun to wear for a night out on the town or when I want to be really bold during the day.
Would you ever wear a dramatic purple lip gloss like this? What is the darkest lip color you’ve ever worn? Do you prefer to have dramatic eye makeup instead of dramatic lip color?
That color is fabulous! Good pick, and I’m glad you went with it instead of backing off. Now I want to go buy some… *restrains self from typing it in to the search bar* 🙂

Me, too. 🙂
And you’re going to buy SOME? Which ones? Or are you going to buy back-ups, too? Do it! Do it! Haha!
This is absolutely gorgeous Mary! I love love love this color, even though I’m not bold enough to wear it! You pull it off fabulously though! 😀
Thanks! 🙂 I didn’t think that I’d be bold enough to wear it, but I’m so into purple that I decided to give it a shot. Plus it’s not often that I run into a pigmented purple lip gloss.
Have you seen the MAC Violetta lipstick? Now THAT is a crazy-bold purple lip color! Looks fun, and I always admire people who can pull it off. Same deal with MAC Candy Yum Yum (the neon pink lipstick that sold out so quickly).
