MAC DazzleGlass First Impressions

dazzleglass 390

I know people warned me. I know people ranted at me. I know people even bitched at me to stay away from MAC Dazzleglass but sorry guys all your ranting, bitching and warnings went in one ear and out through the other when I was presented with the display of DazzleGlass at the MAC counter. I truly value your opinions and hold them in high esteem but this time I beg to differ with those of you who shouted dismayed warnings about how bad DazzleGlass was.

It’s simply awesome.

Sorry. But it is.

I lurve it.

I got myself 6 of the 16 colors and I’ve convinced myself I must have them all (in order to be master of the universe you see)! They are gorgeous glosses!

Glittery, Shimmery, Pigmented! What more could a girl want or need in a gloss?

The photos you’ll find below are all taken in soft white light, no flash was used so you can see the true colors of the products! Hope this helps when making your selections!

Many rantings of sticky and tacky have arose and I’ve decided to make my peace with MAC Lipglass and MAC glosses in general. I’ve realized that since it’s so sticky and tacky it lasts longer on my lips than the everyday average gloss. It doesn’t slide off, it doesn’t smudge, it stays right where I want it for long periods of time minus touch ups! I can’t believe I’m saying this but CHEERS to sticky, tacky gloss!

DazzleGlass is no exception to the rule. It’s sticky and it’s tacky but it lasts all freaky day and gives your lips a gorgeous, healthy dose of glitter! I’m a glitter freak so I couldn’t be more excited about this collection!

And the colors?

Wow!

Awesomeness!

The colors are insanely pretty. There’s a little something for everyone in this collection but if you’re honest with yourself you’re going to be like me and just want every single color!

I get tons of questions about the taste and scent of various MAC lip items and to answer before I get the question, yes it’s vanilla tasting and scented. Not the greatest taste in the world I agree but the color variety and beauty of these forgives the terrible taste. Please MAC can it be minty fresh time now and kick the vanilla out? Thanks the Muse Hearts you!

DazzleGlasses appear larger in size but are actually smaller with a bigger price tag. I mentioned this in a prior post but once you see the collection for yourself price and size won’t matter much since you’ll be blinded by the gorgeous array of shimmery glosses on display!

I am still shaking myself silly for only walking away from the counter with six of these! I needs more I tell you!

I’m quite confused as I read on a few reviews that this had a gritty texture but I haven’t experienced that. The glitter is very finely milled and you can’t feel it at all on your lips so where the feeling of grittiness comes into play is beyond me! I haven’t had a problem with residue glitter either once the gloss has worn off. Once the gloss is gone, chewed off, smudged off, etc…so is the glitter. No residue glitter left over!

As I mentioned the color selection is outstanding and these are quite happily pigmented enough to wear on their own or over your favorite lipstain or lipstick!

The colors I got were:

  • Glamour O.D.-This is bright pink with hints of coral!
  • Get Rich Quick-This is probably my favorite of the bunch! I’m picturing how great it’ll go with peach blushes! It’s a warm brown that’s very flattering on my skin tone!
  • Spanking Rich-This is a deeper pink with hints of mauve to it.
  • Love Alert-This reminds me of watermelon! It’s a bright pinky red with hints of fuschia!
  • Steppin’ Out-A true pink.
  • Date Night-A purple pink that has a bit of a blue undertone!

If you love glitter, if you love shimmer, if you just love glosses DazzleGlass most definately be for you!

The Muse gives the MAC DazzleGlass Collection a big seal of approval for purchase!

MAC Mutiny Pigment and MAC Pop Blue Eye Pencil: A Marriage Most Wonderful!

Picture+059

Since MAC Mutiny Pigment is my current obsession I’ve been looking through my collection for various items to pair up with it!

Since it’s so beautiful I did decide that it would be best to try it all by itself when I finally get around to doing an FOTD with it!

However, while seeking colors to match up with it, right under my nose, happened to be MAC’s Pop Blue/Black Funk Dual Ended Eye Pencil from the Heatherette Collection!

Ahhh a marriage most wonderful!

How about you?

Loving Mutiny?

What are you pairing up with it?

MAC Submarine Versus Freshwater

I got plenty of emails this weekend asking after MAC Eyeshadow in Submarine and Freshwater. Here are the comparisons if you’re thinking of purchasing Submarine but already own Freshwater!

Freshwater swatches as more of a aqua blue while Submarine is more of a true blue in my opinion!

Hope this helps!

MAC Naughty Nauticals: First Impressions

Picture+282

Shockingly I didn’t rush out to my counter yesterday to purchase MAC’s newest collection, Nauguty Nauticals. I’m unsure whether I should be proud of myself for showing such willpower or maybe just honest and admit that I just got too busy to actually get to the counter!

However, today nothing could hold me back, not even Prom! It appears it’s Prom Night for some schools in my area tonight! Who would have guessed? It’s so bloody early for Prom isn’t it?? Prom Night has caused mayhem at the MAC counter this evening! I was happily doing a little jig at the array of yum that was Naughty Nauticals while patiently waiting for my regular MA to help me with my selections. Even though my mate Jamie was nagging me about having to wait I wouldn’t let anything ruin my first glance at Mutiny! It was love at first sight!

I just stepped in from seeing Iron Man and going to dinner with friends (more on Iron Man later) and it’s really late and I’m really tired but I can’t help but blog this now for you guys!

MAC’s Naughty Nauticals is a fantastic collection and there are absolutely a few essential items you’ll most definately want to pick up from this! I was very pleased in particular with the pigment selection! A total of four pigments were released with the collection but only three are brand new. Lovely Lily was a previous release so I safely skipped it. If you missed Lovely Lily the last round you’ll definately want to grab a jar as it’s a gorgeous, shimmering Lilac. My absolute favorite pigment of the bunch and the one I highly recommend you grab would be Mutiny (you might need two as this is a brilliant color!). Mutiny is described as sky blue on the MAC site but I beg to differ! It’s much more of a tranquil, light aqua. It reminds me of the ocean in the Caribbean! Simply gorgeous and by far the best of all the pigments in this collection! Bell Bottom Blue has a few folks scratching their heads and wondering if they really need it. It’s a bit of an intimidating color as it’s such a dark, true navy blue but I’d say definately pick it up as it goes wonderfully well with one of the shadows released with the collection and will also compliment well with any Blue Storm shadows you might have hauled! It is dark but it can easily be tamed down! Lastly I got Lark About which I originally thought might be a shimmering white but I’m happy to report it’s more of a dirty white, almost gray with iridescent blue running through it! Lark About is also worth picking up in my humblest as it compliments the other pigments in the collection (aside from Lovely Lily) perfectly and will make a rather good base to tone down Bell Bottom Blue!

I was a little stingy when it came to making my lippie and lipgloss selection simply because I was also hauling DazzleGlass today and decided it was best to be a bit caution as I knew I’d be doing a bit of damage with DazzleGlass as well!

4 Lustreglass were released and 4 Lipsticks. I ended up with two of the lipsticks and one Lustreglass. The first lipstick that deserves to be mentioned is Port Red. You might know that I don’t favor reds so well and only ever fell in love with one red from MAC which was released this Holiday entitled Queen’s Sin. I am now officially in lust and love with Port Red. It’s actually a very good dupe to Queen’s Sin so if you missed the color now is your chance to own a pretty nice dupe of it. If you already own Queen’s Sin I’d say pick up Port Red anyway as it has little differences that are actually very pleasing! Queen’s Sin feels to me more like a maroon where as Port Red is a truer, bright red with a metallic sheen! It’s absolutely stunning and will look gorgeous with a blue eye look! The other lipstick I purchased was Party Mate which is an off color pink! For me these were the two best colors in the lot of colors released!

I only ended up with one LustreGlass which was Hey, Sailor. I think paired up with Party Mate this will look rather fantastic! It’s a plummy pink that reminds me of some of the Viva Glam releases. This style of pink is always very flattering with my skin tone! The other Lustreglasses were very nice but I was saving myself for DazzleGlass so I only got the one!

Hey, Sailor!

Sadly, I wasn’t too thrilled with the eyeshadow selection. Meet the Fleet was a matte dark purple that I couldn’t see myself wearing and I know I’d have a bloody hell of a time blending with it and Pandemonium is a repromote so I skipped that!

I’m in love with Shore Leave. I’m always on the hunt for a perfect highbrow highlighter and Shore Leave fits the bill perfectly. It’s a frosty cream that will go wonderfully with all the colors in this collection! Submarine is my second favorite shadow from the releases. It’s a clean, off blue color that reminds me of MAC eyeshadow in Freshwater. And finally I picked up Illegal Cargo which is my least favorite of the eyeshadows but I thought it would go well with Lovely Lily. This is a dirty lilac color with traces of gray!

The entire collection has some sincerely wonderful items and I’m quite pleased with what I ended up purchasing! MAC did an excellent job with this Color Story!

MAC Naughty Nauticals is most definately Muse Approved for purchase!
