DazzleGlass Creme - Style Black Haul & Thoughts

24 comments
Mac's DazzleGlass Creme Collection Official Release Date: September 24, 2009
As always....Toronto's Mac Pro store released these babies out a week ahead and I had to go and grab them.

Nine shades came out with this collection.


Soft Dazzle - Mid-tone peach pink with gold pearl
Sublime Shine - Light coral brown with gold pearl
My Favourite Pink - Light blue pink with pearl
Perfectly Unordinary - Bright yellow pink with gold pearl
Luscious Spark - Light orange with gold pearl
Do It Up - Bright blue pink with pearl
Totally Fab - Bright yellow red with pearl
Amorous - Deep brown red with pearl
Creme Allure - Bright yellow plum

(Collection Info from Specktra.net)


Once again, I took advantage of Mac's Back to Mac policy. I got myself 4 glosses for free (24 Mac empties) and I had 3 glosses from before.

Soft Dazzle, My Favourite Pink, Amorous, Creme Allure

The Swatches:

Amorous, Creme Allure, My Favourite Pink, Soft Dazzle, Sublime Shine, Luscious Sparks, Do It Up

The Comparison Swatches:

The Lip Swatches:

Amorous : This is a gorgeous deep brown red colour and you can even call it a dark Ruby red shade. It looks so pretty worn alone and over other red lipsticks. You can notice that the lipgloss consistency is not so thick and my lips can be seen through. I blame the camera flash for this. It's looks much better in person. TRUST ME! These pics cannot justify how GORGEOUS this shade is. This is a must have in my books. I don't have this type of similar colour at all in my makeup collection. I would love to wear it to cultural events like for Desi weddings/parties.

NO FLASH (OUTDOOR)

My favourite lipstick Ruby Woo with Amorous dazzleglass creme on top! ;)

Creme Allure: It's a GORGEOUS hot pink/magenta shade. I love it! This is another colour I don't have anything similar to.

My Favourite Pink: This is a light pink with gold pearl shade. It's a gorgeous colour but a common shade. It looks similar to Pink Fish TLC or Angel lipstick. I would have to wear lipliner to wear this or apply it on top of a lipstick because of my pigmented lips.

Soft Dazzle: This is a mid-tone peachy pink with gold pearl shade. It is pretty but it's not really meant to be worn alone on pigmented lips. It will look better on top of a lipstick or with a lipliner.

I have 7 of the them. I don't have Totally Fab and Perfectly Unordinary.

Thoughts:
We all know that I am a "Dazzleglass Bimbo" and I love collecting these lipglosses. I just had to get them to expand my Mac collection. The formula is a mixture of dazzleglass and cremesheen glosses. It has the pigmentation (medium/sheer) of cremesheen glosses along with the sparkle of dazzleglasses. I love the creamy moisturizing texture of it and the glitter and shine to it. It is not sticky at all and it has a brush tip applicator which makes it quite helpful during application. I expected the glosses to have more pigmentation though. Sadly, some colours are too sheer for my pigmented lips and I would have to use a lipliner along with it or apply it over a lipstick (I don't mind doing this...these glosses are just too pretty).

To be honest, I wish it was sticky so it can last longer and I feel these have low staying power because it's not thick enough. It tends to come off easily. :(

Overall, if you don't like the stickyness of dazzleglasses yet want the creamy cremesheen gloss formula with some sparkle and shine...then this is for you!
You should get at least one. *$21.5o CDN/$18.00 USD*

I love all the new lipglosses. Especially.....


My Top Favourites:

-Do It Up
-Amorous
-Creme Allure
-My Favourite Pink

Mac Style Black Collection Official Release Date: September 24, 2009

This collection is pretty awesome ranging from black mineralize eyeshadows, bases, eyeliners, nail polishes and lipsticks. Just check out the Mac website on the release date for more details.

Gilt by Association: I believe that is the STAR of the Style Black collection. It's a black eyeshadow with reflects type gold glitter. It looks amazing when foiled or applied on a black base. This is a VERY unique eyeshadow shade and I'm really glad I got this. I would love to do a fotd with this.

Young Punk: It's a black with reflects pink/purple glitter. I love how finely milled the glitters are and I'm glad these are not chunky. I love dark purple smokey eyes and this eyeshadow will will look so HOT especially on top of a black base.

Swatch Comparisons:

Gilt by Association, Young Punk, Beauty Marked

Thoughts:
Overall, this collection seems pretty good and it's targeted towards people who love Gothic inspired makeup looks or it can be for people like you and me who like dark smokey eyes. There are 4 mineralize eyeshadows (with Gold, Silver, Purple/Pink, Blue reflects glitter). It even has black lipsticks and lipglosses but I am no fan of those. There is a black shadestick called Grease Paintstick in Intense Black and according to people, it's a real good black base and it just won't budge or crease....unlike the NYX Black Bean jumbo pencil (unfortunately, it smudges like crazy!)....so I may go back for the greasepaint. ;)

Hope this helps y'all out!
