MAC Cremesheen Glass in Double Dare Is Better Than Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass

Did you read the title?  A bold assertion, eh?  I know that Viva Glam Cyndi lipglass is widely beloved but it just doesn't do it for me.  I LOVE the lipstick, though.  So I was at the MAC counter the other week checking out the Quite Cute collection. (As a side note, those Plushglasses were awful. I have never had a reaction to a product really, but these gave me a rash around my mouth, and my upper lip, where my mustache would be if I had one ;-), got super swollen.  It looked gross.)  I didn't find anything from the collection I needed so I ambled over to the Cremesheen Glass display- my favorite lipglosses.

I saw Double Dare and it immediately reminded me of Cyndi.  So I whipped out my Cyndi lipglass and lipstick to compare.  Double Dare is a more sheer, less orange and no shimmer Cremesheen Glass version of Cyndi- aka exactly what I wished Cyndi had been.  (I have a comparison I'll show you in a bit.)  So you better believe I bought that puppy.

The color looks lighter in the tube than it is in real life.  It looks like a dark pink here but it's more of a coral red.

As you can see Cyndi lipglass is more orange, thicker, more pigmented, and has shimmer.  However, I think Double Dare matches Cyndi lipstick better than the Cyndi lipglass matches it!
