Hi everyone! In celebration of Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, MAC has released 13 "Dazzle"-finish lipsticks. I liked the idea of sparkly, dazzly lips, so I picked up four of these: Win-Win, Liquid Lurex, Hellraiser and Glaringly Hip. Keep reading for pics and my thoughts!
Bonus: I have quickly reviewed 'Boys Go Crazy' d/g at the bottom of this post too!
First, my overall thoughts: These are definitely a unique formula- I can't think of any lipstick that boasts glitter. They are a mix of glaze and frost formulas with tons of glitter! The glitter can be felt if you try really hard, but it's not rough at all. Some of them apply a little unevenly, but nothing too inconvenient- and it definitely varies from shade to shade. And, they are kinda sheer so layers are required for a more intense look. The glitter is very noticeable when on the lips, and almost creates a "vinyl" or wet appearance which just looks really cool! I like that they really deliver on the glitter, unlike dazzleglass, which look great in the tube but don't really shine on the lips.
Here are some swatches:
Now, for 'Boys Go Crazy' Dazzleglass. I haven't bought a dazzleglass for well over a year, mostly because I realized that, as beautiful as they are, they are a horrible deal for the amount of product you get. However, BGC is just simply too stunning to pass. It is definitely sheerer than in the tube, but when worn over the right lipstick, it is gorgeous.
What do you think of the new 'Dazzle' lipsticks from MAC?
