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.

MAC Double Dazzle Collection – Swatches

Here are swatches of all 18 dazzleglasses that debuted with Double Dazzle, which launched this morning in stores nationwide. I’ve noticed that it is not yet available online, and all I can tell you is there is often a disconnect between different areas of MAC. Your local store should have these out today (both of mine did), but I always recommend giving them a quick ring to double check before you waste your time going!

All but Goldyrocks, Stop! Look!, and Utterly Posh are permanent. However, please be advised that dazzleglasses will likely sell out for, at least, a few colors, and it may take a few months before MAC gets them back in stock, even though they are permanent.

shu uemura’s Rouge Unlimited Pink Collection for Summer 2009

Rouge Unlimited’s Pink Collection, a series of lipsticks and glosses made with a Pink Hybrid Pigment, one of the purest pink pigments ever discovered and patented by the cult Japanese beauty company. Thanks to this breakthrough, this lip collection boasts the most vibrant hues available, creating new and unique shades of pink never seen before.

The Pink Hybrid Pigment, which was discovered by shu uemura laboratories, is made up of a fusion between a mineral core and an organic shell, which produces particles that are perfectly round and regular in shape. This consistency is what makes the hues of the lipstick so bright and pure. This is what creates the new and unique hues of pink seen in the collection with shades that range from never before seen light, yellowish, dark and bluish pinks.
