MAC Dazzlelight Eyeshadow

MAC Beiges, Whites, Highlighter Eyeshadow Swatches

This finishes up all of the swatches I have of permanent eyeshadows – I will try to purchase the shades I do not own soon and get those swatches up as well.

Dazzlelight is a soft beige white with a hint of warmth. It has a veluxe pearl finish. The color payoff is good with a soft, smooth texture. It is similar to Bare Escentuals Serendipitous. It’s kind of like MAC Brule in a frosted form.
Mylar is an ivory white with a mostly matte finish. It has a satin finish. It can look a little chalky because of its finish and color, though the payoff is good and application is smooth. It is similar to Inglot #351.
Phloof! is a light pinky-beige with a frost finish. It has good color payoff and applies smoothly. It is a little less warm compared to theBalm Hiii-Yaaa!.
Vanilla is a soft, creamy light beige with a nearly matte finish. It has a velvet finish. It’s very soft and easy to work with and has good pigmentation. It is similar to Inglot #353.
Vellum is an iridescent white with bluish-violet shimmer-sheen. It has a lustre finish. The color payoff is decent but not great, though the uniqueness of the shade tends to make it worth the effort.
Vex is a grayish-beige-pink with a tinge of olive-green to it. It has a frost finish. It has good color payoff, and it’s one of the more unique shades by MAC. Bare Escentual’s Urban Nature cream eyeshadow is similar.

White Frost is a shimmery soft white with poor color payoff, though it still has a smooth feel. It has a frost finish.

The Glossover


MAC Beiges, Whites, Highlighter Eyeshadow Swatches


If you use these more as highlighters, then decent color payoff isn't so bad, because you don't necessarily one a really opaque white highlighter either. The texture on this set was good overall.

  1. I want Vex. It’s a really cool neautral colour. ~

  2. Nora

    Vanilla is my HG highlighter! Can’t live without it, it blends shadows out effortlessly and isn’t flat at all.

  3. wow, Vex is exactly like a *very* old L’Oreal shade called Citrine! I used the entire pan, I loved it :) Must get Vex

  4. Devi

    Vex is intriguing. o_o Vellum more so, but it’s not a color that would suit my skin tone. 😛 I will resist Vex though. >:D

  5. Coco72

    Mi favourites highliters are Femme-fi and Brule. I have a sample of Dazzlelight pigment

  6. Vex is really pretty.

  7. Amanda

    My Vanilla eyeshadow is absolutely terrible to work with, incredibly chalky and doesn’t blend. I must’ve got one from a bad batch :(

  8. MLJ

    I love Vex. Such a pretty colour

    I can’t believe you didn’t include MAC Shroom in the MAC Beiges. It is my go to high lighter everyday of the year!

    • I was going to say the exact same thing. I only have four MAC shadows…and Shroom is one of them. Other than Satin Taupe, the other two colors are worthless (remaining colors not white).

      • I don’t have it swatched – I don’t even know where mine is. Sorry – if you read the post, I say that I’ve posted everything I have, and if it’s not posted, I don’t own it or can’t locate it. I’m sorry again!

  10. I love Vellum. It’s a favorite of mine. There’s a similar shade in Inglot, #28 I think. There’s a Nyx dupe, too, called Opal.

  11. Really liking Dazzlelight and Phloof! My go-to highlighted right now are UD Virgin and Sin, but I may need to give Mac a try.

  12. Carrie Ann

    I love Vex. One of my favorite MAC eyeshadows. I also really like Vapour, Shroom and Dazzlelight.

  13. alexis kassandra

    Is Vellum a discontinued or pro product. It’s not on the website !

  14. My favorite highlighters are Ricepaper and Naked (pigment)- both work really well for my NC 40 skin tone!

  15. I’m quite pale and love Mylar it’s my go to highlighter, to add a little more shimmer I sometimes use my MAC mineralize eyeshadow duo family silver over it.

  16. Mariella

    I’ve got 3 of the shadows you’ve swatched – Vex, Dazzlelight and Phloof – and I love them all- they are truly great shadows. I’ve also got Shroom (wouldn’t repurchase), Orb and Unbasic White (LE) and use them all. I’m surprised you don’t have Ricepaper in the grouping, Christine. I know it used to be your “go to” highlighter (before Burberry Trench!).

  17. Zozolina

    This Vex colour is gorgeous!

  18. Adrianna Mendez

    I own all of these, I love each and every one of them, so worth having them!

    Needless to say my fave is Vanilla, though Dazzlelight’s not bad either (since it’s more shimmery and less frosty!). vex does look cool though, but it’s too frosty for me and i think the undertone of it wouldn’t work well for me
