All you need is Love… Lips and Lashes! Summer simplified for the modern makeup minimalist.

Lips lead: seven new Dazzleglass shades bring the scintillating selection up to 18! The flotilla-of-lights formula imparts the pearl combination with mega-glisten shine, creamy comfort and the subtle sensation of vanilla.

Lips, Lashes, Lovers…Look out!

OVERALL, if you’re a dazzleglass fan, MAC Double Dazzle is the collection you’ve been waiting for. With eighteen dazzleglasses–six new and twelve repromotes–it’s hard not to find at least a few that catch your eye. Dazzleglass as a formula is a thick, ultra glittery sheer sticky gloss. Some of them are less sticky than others, but the majority have a thick consistency and reapplying isn’t always easy. The glitter isn’t subtle in the least bit (don’t think they’re like Chanel Glossimers); the glitter is obvious and bright. If you’ve handled Reflects Glitters, the glitter in these is very similar. (In fact, if you can’t afford any of these right now, mix any gloss with Reflects Glitter for a DIY version.)

Can’t get to the store? Buy online: Double Dazzleglass @ Nordstromicon.

I bought them all (as you can see), so I could take photos and do lip swatches (forthcoming) for my dearest readers. Normally, I’d say I’d have bought Goldyrocks, and Smile from the new ones. I had originally bought a ton of them, but I passed them along to my sister and only kept a couple (four to be exact). I may have repurchased Extra Amps and Rags to Riches. What did you end up buying? What are you planning to get?

Don’t forget to check out: product photos & swatches.
