MAC Coral Lip Dazzlesphere for Holiday 2011

There are three lip kits this holiday season, and the first one we’re looking at is MAC’s Coral Lip Dazzlesphere ($32.50 for 2 x 0.07 oz., 2 x 0.09 oz.), which includes: On the Scene (light coral beige), Richer, Lusher (peach coral), Eurobeat (peach coral with gold pearl), and Phiff! (yellow pink with red and sapphire pearl).

The Cremesheen Glasses are listed as 0.07 oz. each, while the Dazzleglasses are listed as 0.09 oz. each (and I specifically say each, because this is how it is labeled). What is noteworthy about that is that full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. while full-sized Dazzleglasses are only 0.06 oz. The tubes feel thicker but are definitely shorter than full-sized Cremesheen Glasses/Dazzleglasses, although the clear plastic seems wider/thicker in the kit glosses. The area that contains the gloss seems slightly wider, maybe, but barely. I would hope that those sizes listed are accurate, and if that is indeed the case, then each kit contains $28.78 worth of Cremesheen Glass and $55.50 worth of Dazzleglass. That is a whopping $84.28 worth of lipgloss for $32.50.

  • On the Scene is a milky peach-tinted beige with very subtle white shimmer. It’s sheer in color and does settle a bit into lip lines. MAC C-Thru is thicker, more opaque, and a bit less warm-toned. It’s also similar to Fashion Whim. This shade is a repromote but not part of the permanent range.
  • Richer, Lusher is a soft, pink-coral with a creamy finish and very subtle shimmer (barely noticeable). It’s semi-sheer on lips. It is part of the permanent range. Chanel Genie is much more orange.
  • Eurobeat adds a sheer layer of coral warmth rather than color along with a lot of gold shimmer. This shade is a repromote but not part of the permanent range. It looks like any number of gold-shimmered sheer glosses.
  • Phiff! is a sheer, nearly colorless, shade with silver and soft red shimmer. This shade is a repromote but not part of the permanent range. It resembles silver-shimmered sheer glosses.

Cremesheen Glass is a formula that glides onto the lips easily, feels comfortable without being thin or thick, and tends to be on the sheerer side in color. It’s non-sticky (as compared to Lipglass, which is very thick and sticky), and it typically wears two hours or so on me before wearing away. They also tend to be creamier colors, rather than packed with shimmer. Dazzleglasses have a medium-thick consistency with micro-glitter and shimmer. They tend to be sheerer in color with more oomph coming from the dazzle than the base color. They tend to last two to three hours on me and tend to get tacky over time.

B
Both Cremesheen Glasses and Dazzleglasses are designed to be sheerer formulas, so if you like sheer gloss or glosses for layering, these are ideal. With the listed gloss sizes, these are an incredible value.

    There’s SO little colour in them!

  2. Emily

    It’s nice that MAC is switching up their normal rountine, but this holiday collection just doesn’t captivate me like their previous holiday collections have.

  3. Martyisblue

    Definitely too sheer for me..i prefer lipglasses..):
    Maybe it’s just me, but i can’t notice any difference when applied on lips..):

  4. Kristine

    So pretty! I’ll definitely be looking out for this one!

  5. Cindy v

    Wow, I’m not impressed with the color at all, the fact that they’re all repromotes, means they’re skips for me

    I’m in need of some subtle glosses to layer over coral lipsticks, so this looks fab for me :)

    Nothing impressive again..

  8. joyous

    They look very pretty in the tube but they all look the same on lips, way too sheer

    I actually need some of these to layer over some lipsticks so guess will be investing!

  10. Hilary

    I don’t love sheer lipgloss but I do like sheer glosses. The value of these are SO great. I really want all 3 sets. :)

  11. Mac richer looks amazing on you!

  12. ladylia

    Richer, lusher is beautiful atop Jazzed lipstick (limited)! both complement each other very well. If you don’t have jazzed, try it over other pinky corals and you’ll see the true effects of richer, lusher!

  13. Nancy

    Still not very impressed but this set is the better of the 3 lip sets..

  14. Cherie C

    Ahh I caved and got this one :) Thanks for the review. My little makeup treat after a long drought…

  15. Arlene

    These are amazing corals if you are pale! I layer the creamsheen with the dazzleglass. They are also absolutely non sticky. I hate dazzleglass consistency but I love these.
