MAC Double Dazzle & Style Warriors Swatches and Review

I finalllllllly got to check these two collections out!! :D

Ok let's start with Double Dazzle! :D



This collection features 18 dazzleglass and 2 dazzlelash mascaras. Some of the dazzleglass are repromotes from previous collections, and out of all these, Goldyrocks, Utterly Posh and Stop! Look! are LE! :D Sadly, for us Penang girls, EVERYTHING is LE!! They'll not bring in anymore stocks after they finish selling their current stash!! T_T

Ok let's go onto the swatches!! I apologize for the crappy swatches!! Some of these dazzleglasses are sheer, so they may look the same! lol! Also, the lighting in the MAC store is a little warm! Finally, i hate it when they cut off the brush applicators of the testers... so hard to swatch with the stupid plastic stick!! Do check out Karla Sugar's swatches... hers are amazing!! :D



Sugarrimmed - Milky pale pink with red, teal and white pearl This one's basically clear with pretty sparkles!
Goldyrocks - Sheer soft yellow with pink and gold pearl (LE). I was a little disappointed with this one - i was hoping for it to be more pigmented but it was really sheer! :(
Moth to a Flame - Sheer neutral beige with violet pearl. Methinks that this is a really lovely neutral color!
Like Venus - Clean light bubble gum pink with red pearl. Very sparkly but a little too cool for my liking!! :D
Baby Sparks - Pale pink with violet pearl Ahhh, one of my most favouritest colors!! This goes with EVERYTHING!
Bare Necessity - Caramel apricot with red and gold pearl. Another great nude! :D
Girl's Delight - Sheer mid-tone tan with gold pearl. This would look great on darker lipes!
Utterly Posh - Mid-tone orange with pink and gold pearl (LE)* I was blown away by this one!! The color's gorgeous, and it's more pigmented than most! :D
Get Rich Quick - Warm yellow brown* This color is more suited for pairing with dark lippies!! :)



Rags to Riches - Plummy pink with teal and red pearl* I kind of regret not getting this one!! It's really gorgeous on its own!!
Smile - Light coral with pink and gold pearl* This color would brighten up any lips IMHO!! :D
Steppin’ Out - Clean yellow pink with red pearl* A more pigmented one among the rest... the colors beautiful too!! :D
Extra Amps - Sheer bright blue pink with blue and pink pearl. This one is a little too cool for my liking as well!!
Money Honey - Mid-tone rosy mauve with red pearl. This one is very sparkly too!!
Funtabulous - Purple with violet pearl* A gorgeous one to pair with your purple lippies!!
Love Alert - Raspberry red with red pearl* Ahaha you can read my review for this one here.
Stop! Look! - Sheer violet mauve with blue and pink pearl (LE). This one's a little blah! :P
Date Night - Deep plum with blue and gold pearl* Another one to pair with your dark lippies! :D

Those marked with are my favourites!! hehehe!! Also, those marked with * are more pigmented! :D

Personally i totally ADORE the dazzleglasses because they're just simply gorgeous!! :) Do check them out in person to see if they're for you or not, because i know some people do not like how shimmery / sticky they are!! Better hurry though, alot of them are almost sold out already!! :D


Onto Style Warriors! :D



Ok, i knew the packaging was ugly from pictures, but i didn't know they were THAT ugly!! *tears hair out* The Celtic design coupled with animal prints makes my head spin!!

With that aside, the items themselves are actually not too bad!! :D The colors are definitely wearable (with the exception of the darkest lippie and lipglass), and their textures are really good too!! :D

Let's start with the lipsticks:



Sunsational -Such a pretty and special nude!! It may not show up on darker lips though!!
Brave New Bronze - This one didn't wow me as much as i thought it would! To me it's just another of those 10863 other nude shades there are out there!
Purple Rite - Surprisingly this one turns pink on my lips!! :D
Tribalist - Not for the faint hearted, this shade will definitely turn heads when you wear it out! lol!! :D

Lipglasses:



Liberated - I wanted to skip this one initially because i thought it looked similar to Goldyrocks. But upon closer inspection, the difference is substantial enough to justify buying both!! It's gorgeous!! :D
Gold Rebel - Another gorgeous gold shade!! I totally adore it! :D
Fierce & Fabulous - This one's rather pigmented!! It makes the Purple Rite lipstick purple again!! ahaha!! :D
Style Warrior - What a unique color!! Methinks that this one is more suited for WOCs! :D

Eyeshadows:



Soft Force - A lovely highlighter shade! :D
Bright Future - I LOVE this one!! MAC should totally make this permenant already! :D
Vibrant Grape - The texture of this one isn't the greatest there is around, but the color's beautiful!
Tempting - OMG this is like one of those rare lustre eyeshadow that applies beautifully!! The color's gorgeous too!!
Night Manoeuvers - This one's a little chalky as well!!

Beauty Powder Blushes:



Eversun - Read my review here
On a Mission - this one turns strangely peach on me!! What's going on?? lol!! :P

As with the rest of the beauty powder blushes, these two swatches smooooooothly!! :D

Solar Bits:



These are really beautifully actually... but the fallout could be a problem!! I for one don't think i can ever master how to use them!!

Bronzing Powder & Iridescent Powder Loose:



Not going to review the bronzing powders, but i have to say that the IPL looks absolutely gorgeous!! :D

Lustre Drops:



OMG these are dope in a bottle!! They make me look soooo radiant!! Too bad the one i want is out of stock... T_T

Nail Lacquers:


All one coat! :)

Peaceable - very lovely nude shade!! It applies evenly as well!!
Mercenary - nice bronzy shade!! :D
Violet Fire - this one's meh... and it goes on steaky!!


What'd ya think of these two collections? Didcha get anything? :D

  3. Oh Jenn.....Should I make a trip to Pg just to get the rest of the items from the Style Warrior collection?? Seems like they still have quite a lot of stuff. Most of the MACs in KL already sold out the nicest colors of their lipsticks and lipglasses....sigh.....

    Really like your hauls!
