Product Description

Taken from their website:

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. Provides exceptional shine with a crystalline iridescence. Non-sticky, non-tacky, lightweight and moisturizing. Glides on. Wear alone, or layer over lipstick or Lipglass for dramatic effect. Features our signature M·A·C vanilla aroma.



Pigmentation & Color:
The dazzleglasses are not meant to be very pigmented. They're fun, shimmery lipglosses that look amazing when layered over lipsticks! :D

This dazzleglass is not different - it goes on almost clear with silver and violet sparkles (though the website says silver and red).

Skin swatch:



On my lips:




Texture:
This dazzleglass is not actually sticky, but its not too runny either. IMHO its the perfect compromise between the two extremes and it helps to prolong its staying power :)

Packaging:
This lipgloss comes in the usual tube with a brush applicator:



The box it came in:



Time Test:
I typically get about 6 hours wear, shorter I had a meal in between :)

Price & Availability:
I got this one RM80 / US$18 each, but the one from the upcoming Glitter and Ice collection will cost abit more because it has special packaging (US$19.50 each). This should be available at all MAC outlets as well as on their website, but it will be limited edition.

Usage:
Because of the glitters, I would reserve this for special occasions :)


My $0.02:

Wow, has two years passed already since the Magic, Mirth and Mischief collection already?! :S It's about time i get around to actually START USING the stuff i bought! :P

Anyways, methinks that this is a fun shade to have. I'll not lie - this is not for everyone, especially not those who're not a fan of silver glitters on their lips, but hey, it's the holiday season! :D Truth be told this is hardly tacky (unless you really pile it on)... and it looks absolutely beautiful when layered over another lipstick! :D

The dazzleglasses do last on the lips as well. I think that could be atributed to its medium thick consistency - I typically get about 6 hours of wear, which is great! :)

On the downside, this IS expensive (even more so than the Dior Addict lipglosses if you're calculating by weight)! Within that decently sized tube you're only getting 0.06 ounces of product, which is almost 1/3 the amount of a usual lipglass :(

That being said, I don't regret getting this back then at all. Ok maybe I do, because I much prefer the packaging of the upcoming one! :D
