MAC DazzleGlass First Impressions

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?



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!

Well done on this one MAC!

    Really?! it lasts all day? I might have to take a look at them after all.

  • Beauty Addict

    Hey Musey, thanks for the review, I love Glamour O.D, Love Alert and Steppin’ Out. Can’t wait for it to be in! 🙂


  • Tammy

    I am one of those who told you it was really sticky and left some glitter residue, which it does for me…but I still love it! I am probably going to get some more too…I really like the Date Night! I also got Sugarimmed, and Baby Sparks (I think that’s it). What can I say, I like long lasting gloss too. My only other complaint is that there is less product than in Lipglas…oh well, can’t have everything, but I still try! lol

  • Gee

    Are there 21? I thought there were 16…I’m confused, lol.

  • the Muse

    hey Emelie!

    Lipglass and mac glosses in general have good staying power. All that stick and tack keeps them in place a very long time 😉

  • the Muse

    hey gracie!

    You’re most welcome 🙂

    I’ll be reviewing more colors as I get ’em hehehe 🙂

  • the Muse

    hiya tammy. You aren’t the only one lovie. A few folks on a makeup forum I visit had said the same thing. But I still haven’t had that problem thankfully 😉

    LOL I agree less for more sucks but these are worth it.

    I didn’t get Sugarimmed as I wasn’t sure about it but I’m definately going back for more. I’m really feeling these!

  • the Muse

    hey gee.

    this be a form of poor journalism on my part. Yes 16 😉 hehe. 5am posts, bleary eyed muse, and counting do not go well together!

    Thanks for catchin’ that!

  • adina

    Ok, i previously stated that I hate hate hate these. But, being the true mac lover that i am, i gave these a second chance. Changed my mind I did. Now i love love love these! I have 9 of them! The question is- will i cave and get em all? 😉

  • laudry

    HI – Love your review; I heard the same bad things but I’m so glad I tried these anyway, because they’re the BEST! The glitter isn’t gritty, & they look totally stunning, probably my favorite MAC lipglass ever. I got “Money, Honey” then HAD to go get more (“Funtabulous” & “Love Alert,” both incredible) – it’s GORGEOUS by itself but I think the effects over lipstick are even better! Very glam to wear going out, & it certainly turned a lot of heads (etc!) when I did. The only problems are: like you said, that vanilla cake-mix smell! And that now I am DYING to get ALL of them, lol!

  • BeautyTalk

    I still haven’t gotten around to getting one! I really should before they run out.

  • the Muse


    You and a dozen others told me STAY AWAY! But I ended up with 6 and I loved them. I needs more 😉

    I’m glad you are loving them now 😉

    cheers to that!

  • the Muse

    hi there laudry!

    Thanks for commenting 🙂 I’m glad I ended up trying them too. I’ve heard many a horror story and was worried I’d hate them but damn aren’t they fab?

    Aside from in 3D these are most definately a favorite 😉

    You’re 100% right, over lipstick
    these are killer!

    The taste makes me gag a bit 😛 wish they’d change it to mint. I wants ’em all too 😉

    Thanks again for the comment! Hope to hear from you again!

  • Kaoru

    Hehe, you didn’t get a single one of the colors I got. I got Rags to Riches, Comet Blue, and Ms. Fizz. You seriously have to check out Ms. Fizz. I cannot describe the gorgeous that this becomes on lips. The color in the tube is nothing compared to it! ^_^

  • Taryn

    Aren’t they gorgeous? I got two pinkish ones (can’t remember the names) and the Comet Blue. The blue one is so unique and looks great paired with pink or red lipstick!

    I hope they make these a permanent part of the line. I’m sure they’ll sell really well.

  • mistresschimera

    Date Night is calling out to me to try..but the glitter in DazzleGlass kinda turns me off since I am not that into sparkly lips. I may give it a go though since MAC lip products have a hold on my heart lol.

  • the Muse

    hiya kaoru!

    I wanted Ms Fizz but it was sold out 😛 Damn them!

    Don’t worry I’m totally going back for more hehehe 🙂

  • the Muse

    hey Taryn!

    Amazing simply amazing. And they layer like a dream. I didn’t try the blue as I was scared. I got it for PJ whom loves aquas, blues and such in the gloss department but I still haven’t been completely sold on blues 😉

    I’d love to see that happen as the are truly unique and gorgeous! Look forward to reading a review from you!

  • the Muse

    hi mistresschimera!

    Mmmm It’s not hardcore sparkle’s about the same as you’d get from a lipglass but a hint more shimmer 🙂 At least that’s how it felt to me!

    *pushes you to the counter* at least look…swatch…;)

  • BeautyChick101
