MAC Marilyn Monroe Dazzleglass Review & Swatches
If you’re all about the sparkle you’ll enjoy the two limited edition Dazzleglasses released with the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection.
I think the only thing special about these is the Marilyn packaging. You might want to take that into consideration prior to dishing out $21.50 for each one as really, there are SO many Holiday Lipgloss Sets available out there which will get you some very nice glosses at less the purchase of these two Dazzleglasses.
Let’s take a look!
MAC Dazzleglasses are always a surprisingly smaller purchase. They cost more than MAC’s regular Lipglass and might appear bigger but hold a mere 0.06 oz of gloss per tube versus 0.17 oz of a regular Lipglass.
The marketing here is the packaging because I find the shades uneventful and as I said a bit on the expensive side due to so many Holiday Collections popping up at the moment. My logical beauty side rarely comes out as I’m all about squealing over packaging but in this case I think we need to get the facts down.
Little Rock is a white sparkling white gold pearl shade and Phiff is a sparkling beige-y peach. The colors have chunkier shimmer in the formula which isn’t very pleasant looking after the gloss has worn away as it leaves run around the glitter mouth sometimes. So touch ups are required to keep these shades looking fresh.
Both are sheer and look quite frosty on their own and dare I say a little too glittery. I think they’ll make excellent overcoats perhaps on top of some of the incredible red lipsticks released with this collection. On their own I find them a bit on the uneventful side as they don’t really have much color, it’s just a clear gloss with tons of sparkle. What’s the fun of that? Gimme a little tint and I’d be more inclined to rave.
I’m typically pro-Dazzleglass since I love sparkle but these shades just felt meh to me. Both look the same to me on lips. You’ll want to be careful with Phiff as I believe MAC released it prior in a Holiday Collection.
Unless you’re buying for the packaging and for collector’s reasons, which is understandable, you don’t necessarily need these. Hopefully I helped you decide if you absolutely have to have ’em or not.
Little Rock and Phiff
P.S. I am appreciating the images of Marilyn on these a bit more as the packaging is longer than the lipsticks and you can see her beautiful figure considerably better but I still feel like they could have went with a better image of her with a little more glitz.
The collection is available now at MAC counters as well as online at www.maccosmetics.com
