Last year the Muse couldn’t get enough of MAC Dazzleglass and this year she’ll be doubling her pleasure with 18 shades! Oh my gods I’m going to be broke as smoke after this haul! The Muse is just happy that some of the shades are repromote that saves some money right?

Today I’ll be bringing you a little sneaky peek of MAC Double Dazzle in a few shades. The official release is April 30th but if we are lucky maybe it’ll make a special early appearance? One can hope!

From what I understand some shades are LE but some will remain permanent. Fabulous if you’re saving a bit of money at the moment and wish to indulge at a later date plus I think Dazzleglass deserves it’s all little special spot amongst the rest of our MAC favorites.

Shades being released are:

  • Sugarrimmed Milky pale pink with red, teal and white pearl
  • Goldyrocks Sheer soft yellow with pink and gold pearl
  • Moth to Flame Sheer neutral beige with violet pearl
  • Smile Light coral with pink and gold pearl
  • Steppin’ Out Clean yellow pink with red pearl
  • Utterly Posh Mid-tone orange with pink and gold pearl
  • Love Alert Raspberry red with red pearl
  • Date Night Deep plum with blue and gold pearl
  • Funtablulous Purple with violet pearl
  • Extra Amps Sheer bright blue pink with blue and pink pearl
  • Like Venus Clean light bubble gum pink with red pearl
  • Stop! Look! Sheer violet mauve with blue and pink pearl
  • Money Honey Mid-tone rosy mauve with red pearl
  • Rags to Riches Plummy pink with teal and red pearl
  • Baby Sparks Pale pink with violet pearl
  • Bare Necessity Caramel apricot with red and gold pearl
  • Girl’s Delight Sheer mid-tone tan with gold pearl
  • Get Rich Quick Warm yellow brown

You’ll notice some repromotes above which is great if you missed them the first time around!

I tried out Utterly Posh, Moth to Flame, and Stop! Look! all of which were as fantastic in formula as the previous release although for some reason they looked like they had a whole heck of alot more dazzle but that could be my imagination.

I took some quickie pictures this morning of myself wearing Utterly Posh and Moth to Flame, I’ll try to get an FOTD posted soon with Stop! Look!

MAC+Double+Dazzle+18

Utterly Posh is my new best friend as it’s a lovely little peach shade that’s ideal for Summer! Stop! Look! is a violet mauve with enough pink to make it perfectly wearable. And finally Moth to Flame is a very natural sheer beige that more sparkle than color but regardless still lovely! I actually applied a bit of Moth to Flame and some Utterly Posh on top for double the dazzle w00t!

Beauty Muse: Making MAC Lipglass Better!


Wanna Muse MAC Lipglass with me? Jump ahead to join in!

The Muse was thinking about it this morning, yes indeed she occasionally does that, think. As she applied her MAC Lustreglass she was thinking how brilliant it would be if MAC embraced the brush applicator for all it’s glosses!

MAC+Lipglass+2

The Muse started her career a hater of MAC glosses as they are so bloody sticky and tacky! Yak! But I’ve since made peace with them and admit that although they are sticky as all hell they have incredible long wear, the longest wear of any of the glosses I’ve tried!

The only thing that would improve on the MAC gloss line is if they’d embrace brush applicators for their glosses. I’d truly dig that. Lustreglass already has a brush applicator and I can so dig on MAC Lipglasses with one too instead of the sponge applicator!

What do you think?

Would you love MAC glosses to all have a brush applicator?

How would you improve their glosses?

MAC+Graphic+Garden

According to the Muse’s mate over at Krasey Beautiful this year’s MAC Nordstrom Exclusive Collection will be called Graphic Garden!

Oooo! Ahhh! Awww! Whoa! Yay! Sounds good to me.

They will be releasing the standard goodies like eyeshadow palettes, makeup bags, brushes, etc….but what really caught my interested was the MAC Look Book which will include mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, etc…in a little box! Cool! Likey!

I can’t wait to see MAC Graphic Garden for myself!

Sound exciting to you?

Product Musings: MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish

mac+lipstick

The Muse is super excited about MAC’s upcoming Summer Collections. All the colors are positively dreamy! Loving all that gold and bronze, so very Muse-like!

As I salivated over MAC Summer I couldn’t help but think what was already in my beauty arsenal that I could combo up with the collections when they released and the first thing to entire my mind was MAC Lipstick in Kiss Manish!

Loves it!

Released with the special, limited edition Manish Arora for MAC this incredible lipstick shade won my heart over fairly quickly. It’s made it’s way onto my Year End Favorite List for 2008 and has been worn too many times to count, that’s saying something as the Muse isn’t loyal to any one lipstick.

MAC+Lipstick+Kiss+Manish+3


The shade quite reminds me of my other favorite shade from MAC, Pink Grapefruit Lipglass. It’s such an incredibly deep shade of coral with a loud orange base but just enough punch to give it a dark peach sheen on my lips. Absolutely stunning! Truly MAC broke the mold when they made this particularly lippie!

Have you tried it?

Hauled it for yourself?

Love it as much as the Muse?

Tell me all about it!
