Lipcolour that dazzles with light and shine to bring an exciting dimensional pop to your lips. Large particle pearls reflect and refract light to mimic the brilliance of quartz and opal crystal.

Features our signature M·A·C vanilla aroma.

Pigmentation & Color (Plus Swatches! :D):
This gloss looks really red in the tube, but is actually a Raspberry Red with Red Pearl as described on the MAC website! It is quite pigmented so one coat is all I need for the color to show on my lips!

On my lips:


Texture & Taste:
Like the Baby Sparks Dazzleglass, this one does not have the gritty feeling common with glittery lipglosses too. In fact, it just feels like your usual lipgloss! I know alot of people complain about how sticky the Dazzleglasses are, but personally i feel it is alright. It is definitely stickier than your usual Lipglass, but not overly so. Just be careful to not get hair stuck on your lips whenever the wind blows! lol! It has a lovely faint Vanilla scent, but no taste.

Packaging:

This gloss comes in a tube which is longer than the Lipglasses. Do not be fooled though, you're actually getting alot less product than the usual Lipglasses!



Lipglass: 4.8g / 0.17 US Oz.
Dazzleglass: 1.92g / 0.06 US Oz.!! (That's less than half the amount of a Lipglass!!)

This lipglass comes with a brush attached to the cap:


Time Test:
This gloss lasted over 6 hours on my lips, which is really great!

Price & Availability:
This gloss is priced at RM70 / US$17.50 / Rs. 1040, which is a little more expensive than the usual lipglass. This is actually repromoted (and raised by US$1) from the original Dazzleglass collection in May with the Red She Said collection. It is LE, but word goes that the Dazzleglasses will make yet another comeback in Spring next year, so we shall see! :) Do grab this while you can though! It's available at all MAC counters and on Maccosmetics.com.

Usage:
I love pairing this over the Crazee lipstick!! Methinks that this will look good over all red lipsticks. Its also great for adding some color to pale colored lipsticks!

My $0.02:

I am a HUGE FAN of the Dazzleglasses! They come in different colors and are just so pretty!! Given that it's quite expensive for the small amount you get, it's still a worthy buy because it is so much prettier than the usual lipglasses!! :D I love how the glitters are not OTT , so these are definitely office safe. I'll definitely be back to purchase more colors! I'm crossing my fingers that they bring back the Comet Blue one... i'm dying to try that out! ;)
